• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Hi all I have a GE ZSC2201NSS 01 Advantium speedcook oven. I have two problems.
First, the microwave thermostats part 1430 on diagram, part #WB21X10046 and or part 1431 on diagram, part #WB21X10148 keeps blowing After about 4-6 months, I have replaced them several times. This controls the option for convection bake/broil. Does anyone have a fix or solution why they keep blowing .

Second, just yesterday my halogen heat assembly is not lighting up when speedcook is used, part on diagram 286 part #WB44X10053. does anyone know if a fuse or thermal breaker can cause this to shut down. I replaced this 1 year ago and my original was going bad.

Last but not least I am looking for the service manual for this oven to help diagnose and repair.
thanks

Regards,
Bob

That's the mag tube TCO. Most likely the mag tube is wearing out. Over time, as it wears out, it gets hotter when it's energized. The mag tube has been discontinued

Mag tube TCO (Thermal Cut Out)

thanks for clarification, however they do make thowe parts and are readily available. My concern it that when they continue to blow there is usually an underlying cause, hence the need for the service manual.

Sears used to have the most up to date parts lists. It's getting to be you have to check multiple sites to get a correct answer.

I'm wondering if it was better when everyone used the same parts microfiche to look up parts? :unsure:

thanks for the information I guess I will order a new one. Is there a way to test first to see if this parts is not performing to spec via a volt meter? Or being that it is 10 years old and used most every day it’s time to replace?

Hi Jake,
thanks so much for the information. I was able to take the unit apart and test all TCO‘s first. The convection temp TCO’s were ok, however the two high temp TCO’s were not working again. So before I installed the new one I threw them in the freezer to see if they would reset, and sure enough they reset, so I threw them back in. Everything is working again, however I still do not understand why it will blow and what it generating extra heat to cause them to blow. The Magnetron is fine and no issues from what I can tell after testing. Still scratching my head.

On a side note, I need to purchase a new GE 36” induction cooktop as the three burners are not working center, upper right and lower right and I am sure it’s the generator board or filter within the board. It works when I have the other two burners running for a while when they heat up, and I thought it was just a cold solder joint. Can’t figure that one out.

And I need to replace my GE Monogram ZET1R3MSS oven as the touch display seems to be on its last leg. Works doesn’t work.
at my wits end with these appliances.

You are ordering the TCO's from a reliable appliance parts dealer like AppliancePartsPros and RepairClinic ? both sites are OEM only and have 365 days warranty on ALL parts!

Lots of folks order parts from amazon and ebay and wonder why they don't last.
