Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Does not "heat" food.

I put food in the microwave 3 times, for 2 minutes, but it did not heat at all. The light comes one, and the turntable turns, but the food does not get warm, not at all.

Microwave light comes on and turntable revolves when food is put in, but it doesn't heat food up. Food remains cold, can you help? thanks Dee


9 times out of ten it is the magnatron that has gone bad, that is the device that creates the microwaves for heating the food. Check inside the cabinet for fuses and if none found or blown then it is the magnatron. These are available widespread but most cost about as much as a new oven, so do a google search on your make and model of microwave and search for a magnatron for that unit. This will bring up parts suppliers and their prices and you can decide if it is worth fixing or replacing

Microwave lights up, turntable turns and fans run however food does not heat up. I have checked to ensure the power level is up which it is. Tried the express 1 minute as well as using the time mode and...


The problem is one of three things, the magnetron "common issue" the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, all three work together in conjunction with the high voltage transformer to generate the high voltage that heats the food.

MIcrowave light and turntable are working, but food comes out cold


I suspect the magnetron or high voltage transformer, and either part's cost or labor would probably be about the same as the cost of a new comparable unit.

Turns on by itself and turntable does not rotate


You may have a control board issue. Thank God for safety switches.
This is a problem that an integrated circuit tech. can repair, but it may be costly.
Decide how much you want to put into this oven vs. buying a new one.

Contact me once you decide and I can help you find a service center.

Thank you,

Everything works...Except for actually heating the food


It has a bad magnetron. This is the tube that provides the microwaves to heat the food. Not too easy to replace yourself but it can be done. Cost of magnetron is probably less than $50 or $60.
