Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
I am an Electrician w/ stong electro-mechanical repair skills. I was recenly given an Emerson microwave oven (model #: MW8201SS)where the keyboard only partially worked and when the start button was depressed, nothing would happen. Upon disassembly of the unit I found 1). worn keyboard ribbon cable contacts, as well as 2). Door safety interlock switches (there are 3 on this model)that were out of alignment. After cleaning the contacts on the ribbon cable and slicing about 1mm off the end of the ribbon cable and realigning the microswitches in the interlock mechanism with the white nylon interlock actuator tabs, I was able to get the thing to work (yeah!!). Warning: Under NO circumstances shoud you EVER cheat the safety interlock safety switch assy. It is there for your protection.
