Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven
Just like the other reports, my Magic Chef goes dead after @ 3 minutes of popping popcorn. I went to alot of trouble installing it and we have only had it one day. I think the solution is to return it.
I had the same problem with mine and called Magic Chef. You are likely overheating a thermal sensor. Somewhere in the manual fine print it tells you to heat things on a plate in the microwave. So, if you put a plate on top of the microwave glass tray and cook the popcorn on the plate, it should be OK.

I returned the item to Home Depot and they took it back no questions asked.

That does indeed sound like the mag is overheating and the thermostat is tripping, but it's probably not the steam.
Do you feel a good amount of air flowing through the vents?
If the cooling fan is not running or the air vents are blocked, that wil allow the magnetron to overheat.
If air flow is not a problem, then you may have a defective magnetron.
Assuming it's still under warranty, it would be best to let a Magic Chef-authorized servicer handle it.
