Since the owner's manual doesn't cover it, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

In many brands, there is a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At
our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some questions to help you or someone you know troubleshoot it:

When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

If not, then you probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount and should see these files:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

If the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable are all coming on, then the problem is in the high voltage section, and then the next questions arise:

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

If there's no unusual noise, it may just be a bad connection at the magnetron.

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


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have

two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

No! there is no reset, the power surge has more than likely damaged the keypad controller, and on the back is a circuit board that has the microprocessor with additional components that controls the vital areas of the microwave oven. If that is gone, it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE LIGHT BULB IN MAGIC CHEF MICROWAVE

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

My magic chef microwave died. I replaced fuse, and electrical works but won't cook. Why?


Most likely if the fuse blew the part that creates the microwave energy is defective, it is called the "Magnetron" Just replace the oven is my suggestion.

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!

I have( had) A magic chef microwave model MCD11E3W I must have had a power surge in kitchen refrig and oven turned off circuit breaker turned off.. All other appliances came back on but the Microwave,,...


It ispossible that the secondary transformer has failed which is the feed of the voltage for the processor timer/clock unit. So check this out with a multimeter and you can get to buy the transformer as it is a step down low voltage type., normally mounted on the processor board.
Check also if the fuse has blown if so replace.
I dont think there could be any further damage.
Credit me if this helps.
