I haven't encountered one of these yet.  Aside from the price (just under $1800), most customers seem pleased with the performance, aside from the usual issues with condensation and noise.  Some complaints include the unit introducing extra moisture into the surrounding air, which may be an issue.

This is a fairly basic model and not all that old.  Sounds like the rest of the high volt circuit is providing sufficient voltage to the mag, and the mag's eating it up.  A faulty magnetron may test good continuity-wise, so unless there's a floating neutral somewhere in the house wiring, I'd say the mag's the culprit.


And I guess it's possible for the mag tco to reset itself, though it's non-resettable.  Kinda like a resettable oven tco.  Still wouldn't trust it, although failure rates are low.


As far as the install, aside from repositioning the mounting bracket, I'm not sure.  Seen too many dumb installs.

Slow fill could still be an issue, especially the cold water side of the inlet valve.  But the fact the unit drained completely but didn't spin properly in the component test could indicate a problem with the pressure switch and/or hose.

If this repair is for a customer, and knowing the GE evap fan motors' penchant for taking out the motherboards, consider pricing out and replacing both components.  Even if replacing the fan motor gets the unit up and running, it may be a different story after a couple of days.

The thermal cutouts can be checked at the control section.  For the upper oven TCO check continuity from P18-2 (orange) to the red wire at the terminal block.  Should show closed.  And as Brother Durham advised, the unit will have to be pulled to replace the TCO, so charge accordingly.
