Popular General Electric Microwave Circuit Boards and Touch Pads
Step one: Disconnect the power to the Advantium 120. Unplug unit, trip the breaker, whatever. Your responsibility to make sure the electrical power is removed.
For cabinet mounted units remove four screws from front side flange holding the microwave to cabinet
On the cabinet mounted model access three screws along the top front edge of case behind the display then one screw on each side of display and two hidden screws accessed through the top of the case via access holes. (use a magnetic see driver for these screws)
Work the display panel off and support it until the connectors are removed.
There are three small color coded plugs on the left side to the PC board and five larger colored plugs on the right side. Note plug locations.
Lay the removed control panel upside down on a towel at the corner of the sink so the selector knob is not resting on the counter.
Remove PC plug to the display and remove four screws on the PC board. Shift the PC board to release the tabs. Then remove two screws holding the PC display board. Note two guide pins also align the PC board.
Remove the rubber insulator from the old board and put it at the same location on the new board. There is usually enough stickiness on this insulator to put it back on the new board.
Installation is reverse. Reconnect power. Try it out after completion by boiling water in a microwave safe container. My new display was much brighter than the replaced display. No flashing. Read more...
On completion, the power was put on and I was disappointed that the repair hadn't worked. The panel lights were still dim and hard to read.
I did a google search on this problem and read that the problem with dim lights is due to a bad condenser and (though I don't believe it) one can go bad in time without being used. I called Parts Select and received a return authorization. The next day to my surprise, the panel lights were now bright and readable. I called Parts select and cancelled the return. Two weeks later it is still working.
