The buzzing comes from the transformer - it's overstressed by a short. You will have to open it and find out the shorted part. I strongly suggest that you either junk it or take it to an specialized repair shop - the voltage inside it (in excess of 5000 volts) can easily kill you if you even come near to it. Your life is worth more than a few hundred bucks.

Generic questions and comments:

Does your microwave have a "popcorn" setting and are you using it? Is there a rotating table in your machine? Is your popcorn bag elevated on top of a bowl or similar? Are you using some other "sensor" setting? Can you use straight time setting and get it to go past the 1 min 45 second mark?

On my microwave, it takes just about that much time and the popcorn is done ... BUT only if I elevate the bag to about the middle of the oven.

Let me know if this works for you.

Trying to locate microwave for odd size built in


It or any other counter top microwave can be placed into a "cubby hole" type of installation, as long as there is enough space on all sides of the unit for ventilation, as specified in the owner's manual.

(Yours is here)

Plus, there must be an opening for air flow.

Vent fan high comes on automatically with cooking


Right, that would be MCO10UW and the owner's manual is here.

The owner's manual does say this, of course,

"To prevent overheating from taking place, the exhaust
fan is designed to automatically turn on at a low speed if
excessive temperatures occur. Should this happen, the
fan cannot be manually turned off, but it will
automatically turn off when the internal parts have
cooled. The fan may stay on for up to an hour after the
range and microwave oven controls have been turned
off."

That;'s standard on microwaves.

But these models do have a separate internal cooling fan (which should run any time you microwave) plus the hood vent exhaust fan, which should only run when you select it, or if there is an excessive stovetop or under-hood temperature.

So if it comes on whenever you microwave, that is incorrect.

When that happens, it's usually a defective vent thermal switch (a.k.a. hood TCO).

But since it's brand new, I would certainly contact Magic Chef about this. If it's in need of repair, they will fix it free, assuming the oven wasn't physically damaged.

Only 1 function works at a time on mco16


That actually sounds like correct operation in that you cannot use the timer while it's cooking.

Assuming yours is model number is MCO160S, you can download your owner's manual here if you don't have it.

Page 19 tells you how to replace the cooktop lights and the cavity light.

How to install a hood microwave magic chef MCO153UQ


I would contact Magic Chef and ask them about getting installation instructions.

See http://www.mcappliance.com/contactus/contactus.asp

The owner's manual is available online here, but it does not contain the installation instructions.
