Question about Magic Chef Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

The button to push that turns the microwave on won't stay pushed

The button to push the microwave on.....pops right back out. I must stand there holding it down for a couple minutes to heat my water for tea. There must be an easy enough way to fix it, isn't there?? I certainly can't afford to replace it quite yet, plus I really like this microwave. It is a MVP II Magic Chef. I can't figure out a way to get the front panel off to look at the inside.
I need help, please!!!
Thank you, Marianne

When you hold a button in you are bypassing the safety controls Marian. Microwave energy can be deadly so you are taking a chance here. I recommend you consider replacing the oven as the new ovens are cheap and have great features. Service on these units cost more than a new unit.

I pushed the veg able button on my general electric microwave je1860wh04 got an error and now it won't heat


To be on the safe side, contact the manufacturer. Some GE microwaves were having problems that could cause them to start later on their own and were a house fire hazard. Please unplug the microwave now.

Turntable won't turn


Look at the front panel, at the bottom, in the middle.
Identify the button labeled "Turntable On/Off".
Push it.
Slap yourself on the forehead.
Next time you fumble to turn of the light in the dark, push the right button.

THE DOOR DOES NOT OPEN


Take a look at the button you push to open the door.
You will need to remove the panel the door button is on and get to the back side.
This is very easy to do after you remove the cabinet.

The button you push to open the door is held in place with four tabs. If one of them tabs break it jams the button.
