Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Possessed Microwave I have a Emerson mw8115ss 1.1 Cu Ft Microwave oven and it recently started having a mind of it's own or is possessed. It is starting a countdown timer for defrosting i think without anyone telling it to. It just does it randomly and cannot get it to stop unless I unplug it and then leave it off for a few hours to a few days and when I plug it back in it does the same thing all over again. Can someone tell me what I need to do without having to take it to a repair shop and get charged and arm and leg for something I can more than likely do at home. The power was interrupted for a few hours the day before it started doing this due to some one wanted to hit the pole with the transformer on it to see how big a dent it would cause. lol Please Help!!!! Kenny

Re: Possessed Microwave

How old is it , if the control panel its going crazy .could'be somethig very simple , tell me the pad panel its plastic or glass, if its plastic its the kind that we can call membrane. this part can be contaminated an send wrong pulses to the controler . if not is the controler itself. unpluged the microwave and open it and check if youcan see dirty .grease bugs, etc. unplug the mebrane clean the contacs with alchohol and q-tips . let me know if works , is no worth it to replace parts on it because the membrane or the cotroler can cost 30 to 90 plus shipping

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS --

I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

How many watts does Emerson MW8675W Microwave have?

Is the cubic foot size of the microwave on the name plate?? It seems that with Emerson the size relates closely to the wattage .. 0.9 cu ft is 900 watts, 1.1 cu ft is 1000 watts .. 0.7 cu ft is 700watts .. That would be the closest info I can get.

Please vote !!

wow.......... an exorcism may be in order.......Sadly your microwave circuitry is malfunctioning which is a costly repair. I would seriously consider trashing that possessed unit and purchasing a new one. the new ones are greener too, use quite a bit less electricity

You have a shorted 2 pad on the keypad.

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.
