Resolved Question:

My GE Advantium 120 Model SCA1000HWW died.
I turned on the microwave with a plastic bag and metal tie in it, it flamed, I turned it off.
Next day the microwave dashboard was unlit. My wife upplugged it, plugged it back in,
it turned on then after a series of clicks turned off again and will not turn on.
We purchased this unit back in July 2004.

does the inside light come on when you open the door?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

No but honestly I'm not sure that light has worked in quite some time?

Any other test I can do?

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
well if the control isn't lighting up there is only two things it could be, depending on if theres power to the control or not. Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=if theres power to this then its blown and needs to be replaced$98.00 if theres no power to the microwave it could be the internal fuse, microwaves are dangerous to work on though, they can hold a lethal amount off voltage in the capacitor even when unplugged, I don't recommend poking around inside this, please consider calling a tech for this if you want it repaired, thanks Bryan
