Re: Microwave works intermittently

This is most commonly due to a failing door switch or door switch mount. But it may also be a bad connection or bad relay on the control board, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. Also, it could be a loose connection at the magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for similar models here: You can order parts at

Emerson microwave oven model number MW8115SS

You don't state how old your oven is, or if you tried other food items afterwords. I also assume you inspected for foreign metal objects in the oven? If it does this whenever you attempt to cook in it, then it sounds as if your oven may have a wave guide cover malfunction or burned area.This part can be replaced by the consumer in most cases, but only after consulting with a trained technician or your parts supplier.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part such as high-voltage rectifier diode

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and
replacement, and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:

There is not much you can do about this. There may be a reset button on the control panel, try it. You can try slamming the door a couple of times & looking on the back for any fuses. If this fails, scrap the oven & get a new one, as they are generally not worth repairing.
