My Emerson MW8115FS 1450 Watts

My microwave was only 3 months old when it was put in storage. Now that we are using it again, it turns on every time the door is closed, but it doesn't heat. None of the buttons work either!!

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....

Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

How many watts does Emerson MW8675W Microwave have?

Is the cubic foot size of the microwave on the name plate?? It seems that with Emerson the size relates closely to the wattage .. 0.9 cu ft is 900 watts, 1.1 cu ft is 1000 watts .. 0.7 cu ft is 700watts .. That would be the closest info I can get.

Please vote !!

How many watts does Emerson MW8675W Microwave have?

From memory, they were about 675 watts? Most MW's are between 500 & 1000watts, from "those" days.

Need help with model # mw8115ss 1450 watts microwave problem???

The fault may be on the system controler board. This may be a protection fault, or a fault with the logic control.

You can call the place where you bought the oven to find out where it can be serviced in your area. Most likely the tech will change the system controler board, or if there is factory authorized component level fix he will do that for you.

This is not something you will be able to service yourself.

My Emerson MW8115

Hopefully it was not an unheated storage area! Moisture and contamination can get into the controls from condensation due to big changes in air temperatures in areas like unheated storage units or garages. That being said, the most common causes of a failure to heat are in order: - bad door switches or door switch mounts - loose connection at the magnetron - problem with the control unit - bad magnetron or other high voltage part At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosiss and replacement, and disassembly information.
