Question about Emerson Black Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My Emerson Microwave Model # MWG9111SL keeps blowing fuses..

When I put in the new fuse and plugged in the power cord, the clock and timers worked, but when I press the start button for it to start warming food, it automatically blows the fuse. Tried several fuses but with the same end result. It blows the fuse. The fuse it takes is 250V 20A.. Went to a part store and got the same fuse so I know we bought the right fuse. Could there be another problem? Check for burnt wires to see if there was a short but none was found. What could be causing this? We have had this Microwave for only a few months.

    I have had problems with microwave ever since I plugged it in. It keeps blowing the breaker and today after only popping two bags of pop corn the thing shut down. I have only had this since summer. Really upset right now.

Emerson Microwave stopped working


Have 1 of 2 choices, the main fuse or the control board for the front switches and clock. primary of the small power transformer has opened. Unplug the unit and take case off and measure the fuse with an ohm meter. if u read 1 ohm or less then fuse is good. then measure across the main power plug tips. If read open then the power transformer is bad. Need to replace the board as not sure if transformer is available.

Emerson Microwave (mw8992rd) not heating up


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.
