How do I turn the beep volume down?


I don;t know of any Emersons that allow you to do that, but I could be wrong.

The answer would be in the owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, many Emerson microwave owner's manuals are available for free download here.

If yours is not there, there might be one close enough to help you.

You can also tape over the beeper to make it quieter. See this video.

My mother just bought an Emerson MW8119 Microwave and can't figure out how to only set say 15 seconds cook time. Is it possible?


Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.

If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.

The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.

Hope this helps!

Mw8115ssw no power


There's no reset button, only a a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and see if ti works.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

Emerson Microwave MW8119SB not turning on


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Power level 10 would be the default - what it is set to unless you manually set it lower.

Power level 0 (zero) is often the setting to use if you just want to use the oven as a timer.

Many Emerson microwave owner's manuals are available for free download here.

Would that answer your inquiry?

If not, please write back with more details.

Have a MW8991SB oven 3 months old. No power to it now.


Do you have power at the outlet? If so, then the problem is in the microwave.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Don't understand how to set the power levels


Is your full model number MW8675? If not, please post your full model and let me try again.

Normally you press Time (or Time Cook) then the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 (which stands for 10% to 90% power level), then Start.

On some models you just press the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 then Start.

Many Emerson microwave manuals are available for free download here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/

If your is not there, try one with a number close to yours.
