We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair for $39.95.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn

You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.

SOURCE: microwave

im not sure what a magic chef bulb is but you can check by opening the casing, the bulb is normally mounted on a fiber board and screwed on the metal part of the microwave,remove the two wires attached to it first, after unscrewing the screw, you can pull out the bulb holder and you can see if it is a replaceable bulb if it has a socket. you can use the old bulb holder , just replace the bulb. in some design, the bulb is mounted directly to the bulb holder, you have to buy the bulb mounted directly to a new bulb holder and use them all as an assembly. be sure to screw them back tight. tnx. i hope i was able to help.

Turntable, lights and fan inop


sounds like a cross wire, and a short. I'd inspect the socket for the bulbs to ensure that there's no short circuit.

What causes vibration with the turntable?


It could be the turntable motor but you need to check for food debris under the 3 point stand that the platter rests on. Take the stand out of the oven and check the wheels etc, Magic Chef Microwave Turntable Motor 3966820810

WHERE IS THE FUSE LOCATED ON MY MAGIC CHEF MCO165UW MICROWAVE


Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

Magic chef microwave


Take the tray and the plastic piece the tray sits on out of the microwave. There is a small motor that turns the turntable. It is probably bad. You should be able to replace the motor from the bottom of the microwave. Part number is 3966820200.
