Open Question

Emerson mw8781sb stopped working

Bought this one to put in our closet upstairs. We just had twins ,so it has been the best thing we ever did, to keep us from running up an ddown the stairs heating up bottles. Worked fine until a few minutes ago, I was heating up some babe cereal and when I came to get it, it was cold, and the power was not on. No lights nothing!!

    It's probably a blown fuse or the magnetron may have overheated, tripping the magnetron's thermostat.



    You mention that it's used in a closet.



    Is there adequate free air space behind and on the sides of the oven in that location, as specified in the owner's manual?

Emerson mw8781sb won't power on


Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board. Now identify the parts by clicking this link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/141/identifying-microwave-parts.html

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron. Check this link to know how a microwave works:

So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off. Check the wave guide covers, if food had deposited
then it must be checked or replaced. See link:

I think the fuse is blown on my emerson microwave mw8781sb i test the power coming from the plug and there is power but none after that


You have blown the microwave internal fuse. If you are handy enough you can take the cover off and follow the power cord in the system. The fuse will be between the transformer and the power cord
YOU MUST DISCONNECT POWER CORD AS PART OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY WHILE WORKINGON ON THE SYSTEM!!

Microwave exploded.


Did it make a popping noise, like a .22 cal pistol? Probably one of the larger capacitors on the power supply blew up.
