Daewoo MT1510B problem

Just put this microwave brand new in newly remodeled kitchen. Worked fine to warm things a few times. Tried the popcorn setting and worked for one batch , second batch shut off completely, even the clock. Came back on after about 5 minutes but had to reset the clock. now does this every time we use a high heat setting. House problem or microwave ?

Chances are your magnetron is overheating, activating the magnetron thermostat, which resets and restores power when it cools.

Your manual may call for you to put a paper plate under the popcorn bag to heat better and to protect the turntable. (And always place the food slightly off-center on the turntable, for the same reasons!)

You should first confirm that the outlet reads about 110-120 volts AC and that the microwave is on its own breaker. If a microwave shares a breaker with another high current device (or even lights) it can affect operation.

Then be sure the microwave's internal cooling fan is running.

If this is an over the range model, it will also have a exhaust hood vent fan which you can turn on and off at will, but this is not the fan I'm talking about.

The internal cooling fan should be on whenever the oven is cooking. If not, the magnetron can overheat and eventually be destroyed.

The next issue is how long you've had the oven.

If it's within the 30-day dealer exchange period, I'd take it back for a new one pronto.

If it's within the full warrranty period (usually 1 year) Daewoo's service center should fix it free.

You can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

Have a kitchenaid microwave KHMS2040WSS brand new. Is there a way to set the popcorn sensor for a smaller bag? Right now it is set for 3.5oz and burns all the popcorn.


I have never seen a microwave that doesn't burn popcorn if you use the "popcorn" button. Why the manufacturers keep putting them on I'll never understand. There's nothing you can do change the presets on an oven since they are built into the controller. Instead of relying on the oven, you should follw the directions on the bag. These tell you to use high power, stay by the oven and stop the cooking when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. Stored heat will continue to pop kernels for a bit, and you won't cremate your popcorn. You'll also avoid the possibility of the bag catching fire and damaging the oven, which I have seen several times. Finally, don't expect 100% of the kernels to pop. There wil always be a few duds, and extending the cooking time just results in burned popcorn.

Hello bruton. As a microwave oven ages, the interior paint often deteriorates as does the internal part that creates the micro waves.

Using this is not a good idea as there is now a fire hazard. The best solution is to replace the microwave. There are sales now and you can get a nice new one for under $100.

Daewoo Microwave MT1510B will run for one minute or longer then stop for now apparent reason.It will stay off for 10-15 minutes then when it comes back on it is in spanish language. What is the issue?


Is it new???

If it is still under manufacturers warrenty, then take it back to where you bought it.

It appears to be a fault in the control chip. Not a lot can be done, it may be cheeper to buy a new one. Wallmart have cheep ones.

We have a brand new Maytag mmv5165BAS over range microwave oven. When we tried to make microwave popcorn using the 'Popcorn' control, the microwave stopped early and the display read E-63. What does...


E63 is a "T1 Max Time" error. It indicates a problem on the control board.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Keep a close eye on it, and if it fails again, you want to contact Maytag for free warranty repair.

The cooling fan is a must!

Otherwise, the magnetron will be ruined, and that drives up the repair cost.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Magic chef microwave shuts down


We had the same problem with our brand new Magic Chef. Before going through the trouble of taking it back I called Home Depot. After talking to a Home Depot Rep I am told that the overheat sensor is under the glass plate directly beneath the popcorn bag. Popcorn gets very hot and the heat of the popcorn causes the sensor to shut the machine down. I would imagine this would be the same for a baked potato.
Very poor design.
I was told to put a microwave safe plate down and put the popcorn bag on it. This should help to reduce the heat and not trip the sensor.
A safety sensor is great, but not if it keeps tripping the machine and shutting down!
