Question about Microwave Ovens
Hi, we have had our microwave for about 2 years and every once in a while it would come on by itself during the day. Last night I heard it running at 4 am and when I got to it it had been running a really long time because it was smelling extremely hot. Any suggestions. We are afraid to leave it plugged in now. Thanks Unfortunately our household also has the Magic Chef fairy. Our microwave, Model# MCO160uw has been installed for maybe 5 months. It's turning itself on randomly. I have decided because of a potential fire hazard to unplug it. We have to stand on a chair to plug it in when we need it. What a hassle. Help!
This absolutely is a fire hazard.
Until it is fixed, you are right to either unplug it or simply leave the door open when you;re not using it.
You have a failed membrane keypad.
If you would like to have us to do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
