Dishwasher would not pump water out. Othre appliance was advantium oven.
Removed the dishwasher. Simple to remove and replace the pump, flapper, and o-ring. Reinstalled dishwasher. It worked!
The GE Advantium was another story. Replaced the Magnetron, diode, and capacitor. Oven still did not work so I took it to the dump. No more GE!

Noise and no Heat on Microwave oven.
First, I waste $65 by calling some "REPAIR" service. They showed at home and charge me that just to tell me
Second, I researched on the web and ordered a part, which was not the issue. I waste abnother $72
Third, I found Part-Select and got the right answer: the Diode was the problem. Ordered the part form Part-Select and it FIxed it !!!

Note: I did not buy a new microwave because this one is mounted on the wall and it will cost me +$800 just the lowest price.

My microwave began suddenly making a loud humming noise while cooking food.
My microwave began suddenly making a loud harsh humming noise while cooking food. I did not let it go on long enough to know if it cooked the food or not. I did some Internet research and learned that it was likely the Magnetron. The test for this was to run the microwave for at least a minute on the lowest power setting and see if the noise cycled on and off. It did, so I (actually, my wife) ordered the part from partselect.com using the model number. I was successful in replacing the part, and we are back to microwave popcorn and quick defrost for a price that was less than a service call, however, it was time consuming, required a large work area, and access to 5 out of 6 sides of the unit. So proceed at your own discretion

Caution:

The first thing in every set of repair instructions was to discharge (short-circuit) the capacitor, as it may store large (as in lethal) amounts of electricity even when it is not connected to a power source. I had never done this, but found these instructions:

“Discharging your microwave's capacitor is absolutely essential in preventing injury to your microwave, your tools, and yourself. A capacitor stores a large amount of electricity even when your microwave is unplugged, and it must be discharged before beginning any repair.
A capacitor is discharged by creating a short circuit between each of the two capacitor terminals, and between each terminal and the chassis. The chassis is the metal mounting (bare metal surface) of the capacitor. Read these directions thoroughly before you proceed.
With your microwave unit unplugged, touch the blade of a well insulated screwdriver to one terminal. Gently slide the screwdriver forward until it reaches the other terminal, holding it there for a few seconds. Be aware that this often results in a loud and startling 'POP'.
Repeat this procedure in order to create a short circuit between each capacitor terminal and the chassis (bare metal mounting plate surface). This same method can be applied to a capacitor having three, and not two, terminals.”
I had not run my microwave in over a week, and then while my part was shipping, left my microwave 'unplugged' for more than two days, and my capacitor apparently discharged itself, although I did go through the above procedure carefully and completely - just in case.
Step-By-Step:
1. You must remove your microwave from the cabinets - it is impossible to repair otherwise. This is best accomplished with 2 strong people - my wife and I made it work, but wished for another guy.
a. While supporting the microwave, remove the two screws coming down through the cabinet above.
b. Lift the rear of the microwave as much as possible, then tilt the front down - there is a clip high on the left side, as well as the hinge/clips on the bottom.
c. If you do not lift it off the wall all at once, you may have to lift the rear even farther to remove it from the hinge/clips on the bottom.
Important Note: Always beware of the microwave door, if it is bent or broken and cannot retain a seal, the microwave not function as a safety feature to keep from releasing microwaves.
2. Remove the vent cover on the top/front of the microwave - be careful, it's plastic.
3. Remove the vent cover and light panel on the bottom of the microwave - this is several screws and some simple wire clips.
4. Remove the "shell" (top and sides) of the microwave - this is several more screws on the back. Make sure to remove the plate that is holding the cord in place on the top.
5. Remove the interface panel by the screws on the top (which had been hidden by the vent cover) - the wires can remain attached, just slide it aside.
6. Remove the metal cover on the right side at the rear; this will expose the Magnetron and the Capacitor. Remember to immediately test and discharge the capacitor!

7. After you discharge the capacitor, remove the other cover plate and the support bracket - in case you haven't noticed, this is a time and space consuming operation.

Rectifier
★★★★★
★★★★★
(1)
PartSelect Number PS11738693
Manufacturer Part Number WP13091701
The rectifier (also known as a diode) provides the microwave with energy to cook food. If your appliance is not producing heat or not turning on it could be due to the breakdown of the rectifier. This part works with microwaves, microwave oven combos, and wall ovens. This is one of the most common parts to fail over time in a microwave. This part is just under 3-1/2 inches in length. It is a genuine OEM part that is shipped right from the manufacturer. Make sure to use the proper precautions before attempting this repair. Ensure the appliance is unplugged.

Installation Instructions
Tim from Gilbert, AZ
Microwave no longer functional. Power and fuse check good.
1. Opened door to remove glass dish and plastic rotating wheel.
2. Turned breaker "off" to appliance at main electrical panel.
3. Removed two "star" screws located on side of front control panel.
4. Removed four screws (two top and bottom) from front bezel around the wall mount microwave unit.
5. With bezel removed; removed four screws (two top and bottom) from the frame seecuring the microwave above the conventional oven directly below.
6. Using an inverted laundry basket; slide the microwave unit out approx. 14-16 inches and balance the extended weight on the inverted laundry basket. I opened the oven door and placed the laundry basket on it.....was a good fit!
7. With the side sheet metal now exposed; remove four hex nut screws (black) from unit.
8. Also, swing front control panel open; notice two sheetmetal tabs securing side panel. bend each up to help release side panel.
9. NOTE: The sheet metal enclosure is a shield for the microwave unit. It interlocks around the side cover preventing accidental removal.
10. By removing the four hex screws, you will notice two philips screws toward the rear of the unit. Remove both of these screws and the side panel should come out exposing the magnatron.
11. Uplug the magnatron and light. The light is in a white plastic cover and the magnetron is the main device in the unit. There was a schematic in my unit that helps illustrate each of the locations.
12. NOTE: There are capacitors toward the lower rear of the unit that will remain charged although power is off. Safely dscharge these capacitors or don't service this unit on your own.
13. Remove the magnatron by removing the four philips screws attaching it to the side enclosure.
14. Remove the plastic cover encasing the light by removing three philips screws.
15. NOTE: The replacement magnetron does not include the thermal sensor secured to its case. You must remove this from the old unit or buy a new one. There are two small philips screws securing this in place.
16. Reverse order to install new units.
17. NOTE: there is a gasket on the magnetron (around the hole where the rotating head projects into the cooking chamber. Ensure gasket is properly installed to prevent microwave leakage.
18. Once everything is reinstalled; place glass of water in unit to test. Set controls properly and turn on. Water should be hot per setting.
