Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven

Open Question

Emerson 1000 wt microwave

Hi there:
My microwave was making a loud humming sound but was not turned on. The top was very hot. I hit the cancel button to no effect. I opened the door and the humming stopped. I closed the door, and the humming started. Opening the door again stopped the buzzing and it remained quiet after closing the door again. Since the top was extremely hot, I unplugged the microwave.
What is wrong?

It should have a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

I'd call Emerson at 1-800-695-0098 to find your nearest authorized service center to have it fixed free.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

Loud noise and not heating up


if its making a loud humming noise you need to remove the outer and carefully discharge the high-voltage capacitor in the magnetron circuitry(caps are usually oval in shape and 3 to 5 inches long) after this disconnect one terminal of the cap and check it for being open,then do the same on the high-voltage diode and check this for front to back resistance high in one direction and lower with the meters leads reversed on the diode,the humming is coming from the transformer not being loaded by the cap and diode to double the voltage required by the magnetron tube of -2,000 volts D.C.

The oven sparks and gives a loud hum during use with plastic food containers. This scares my wife and mom terribly. I have an Emerson 900W microwave oven (model:MW8999SB).


It seems as though the container has a small amount of metal embedded in it ... don't assume just because it is plastic you can put it in the microwave.
Tip ... put just the plastic container in empty and try it. If the plastic get hot then it's the wrong type plastic for a microwave

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .

Emerson 1000 Watt Microwave


There is a good possibility that microwave energy is leaking near the magnetron tube, or some other high voltage electrical problem is occurring. I would recommend having it tested by qualified microwave repair technician. A few things you can do....
-Make sure the door seal is clean and no corrosion.
-Check the interior for rust spots or holes and make sure it's clean inside.
