Buyer beware: GE Advantium 120 Oven/microwave/speedcooker - Page 2

post #31 of 40

It's funny you should say that, my Advantium will be 10 years old in a couple of months, and it still works like new.  I have had to change the light bulb, but otherwise no problems.  As a matter of fact, I am renovating my kitchen next month, and am trying to find a stainless door to replace the white one.  I do not want to trash the oven because it still works like new, and I really like it.

We've loved our advantium microwave since we bought it in 2004!!!
The only issue we've ever had is a broken door latch, twice. It's a very easy fix.
Don't know anything about all the bad luck others have had.
We'd buy another again!!!!!!

I have ( had) an advantium 120..loved it so much.  Sunday was melting some chocolate in a little glass dish..the fabric started burning thru and arcing and it had a flame inside.  I will miss it so much but scared to purchase another one after this.  It was about 6 years old and I did use it especially the speed cook.

Thank you for the warning on this product.  

I had been very seriously considering buying the Advantium 120 until I read your review.  It boasts a number of cooking features I have not seen on any other microwave convection ovens, so I was quite intrigued. However after reading this horror story and the ones that follow, I intend to now look elsewhere.

Best regards,

Sean.

I too bought the GE Advantium 120 in January of 04. Although I loved it in the beginning it turned into nothing but trouble. My door cracked twice which the repairman blamed on the heat rising from the stove, mind you it is made to be mounted above the stove, supposedly. It has stalled out a few times during microwave use but after a day or two it would resume working. Just yesterday while using the convection oven it just completely died. Absolutely nothing works, I am so dissappointed in this product and I would seriously warn any one considering it to deffinately beware!

Can you share any insight on how to convert recipies for speedcooking in the Advantium?

I think Sears has cheapened the appliances. Like you, I used to trust their appliances. A few years ago my great Sears vacuum of 25 years or more died, so i went right back to Sears fora replacement. The new one was a piece of crap. The old one was so much better. Barely 3 years old now & babied every time it was used just because it was so cheesy, it has lost suction to the point i bought another vac for the floor and only use the Sears on the drapes. Also i had my fridge die & the repairman said not to get a Kenmore because they no longer used the great Whirlpool compressors like they used to, but have cheap Chinese ones in their refrigerators now. Whirlpool still uses the good ones, (and also Estate (subsidiary of Whirlpool). And whatever you do, don't get anything Haiet makes. I have a portable A/C of theirs. Will not drain the water. Leaks all over the floor. Junk.

As for GE stoves, I still have one I got about 15years ago. At the time they were advertising that the oven was extra large. But it isn't. Just regular size. One turkey takes the whole rack & side dishes have to go on the other one. Plus all 4 burners are too hot unless you practicallyturn them off. Not much control.

Four years new GE Advantium 120. Broken. No power, completely dead. Now what? Wish I had read all the reviews on it. Out of warranty, estimate for repair more than the cost. Can anyone give me suggestions?

We bought a GE Advantium 120 about 10 years ago and love it! Maybe they have gone down hill since, but ours is still going strong.
