Emerson Microwave (mw8992rd) not heating up

The store wouldn't take it back because they said it was a fuse. It comes on and the light, turn table, and clock work, but it doesn't heat up. Is there a solution?

I have replaced the main fuse on this model. Though blown main fuses are common in this model, it will not even turn on when they blow, so your problem is most likely NOT a blown fuse. I had heard of your problem so, when replacing the main fuse inside one, I looked for additional fuses and saw none. The store was wrong. Even if it were a fuse, the security Torx screws mean that you couldn't replace the fuse anyway.

This microwave seems to have been haphazarly been recommended by Consumer Reports, but it is terribly unreliable. The turntables break when popping popcorn, the main fuse repeatedly blows, and they also stop heating.

My emerson mw8992rd continues to run when I plug it in The light inside is dim. but it doesn't heat


The most likely cause is that the fuse for the magnetron/klystron has blown. It is usually somewhere under the cover, if you are not skilled in electrics then I suggest you take it to a repair man the fuse is cheap just a few cents but the repair man will want a bit more!

When I press the start the button the turn table inside microwave is not turning and there is not heat on the food. But the light is on and the clock is working. What do you think is the problem? and what...


The turn table motor of your microwave is defective already and also the magnetron - the source of generated heat of the microwave is also defective. But before assuming that magnetron is dead, check the high voltage fuse it may be blown and replace the fuse (if it is blown) it with similar rating. I hope I help you with your microwave problem.

I have an Emerson MW8992RD model and just opening the door blows the fuse! any idea ,could it be a bad door switch? if so where can i purchase a new 1?


Definitely sounds like a defect or misadjusted door switch. This site has venders of M/W parts. FYI,Federal law requires a leakage test after door repair, magnetron replacement or interlock repair.

Mw8992rd seems to be working fine except won't heat food. timer, touch pad, inside light, carousel all work fine. tried different times and power levels but still no heat.


Hello,
This sounds like a bad magnetron that would have to be replaced. There is up to 2000 volts stored in a microwave, even when unplugged. For saftey reasons I would strongly suggest you have a qualified technician check it out.
Hope this helps.
