Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No power I set the time this morning, pressed start, heard the normal "thud" when the thing stats but directly after the thud all power was lost. Tried different outlet to be sure I didn't just flip a breaker, with no luck. Really like this model, otherwise I'd already be at Target.

Re: no power

Your fuse is definately blown. possibly moisture. if you replace exact fuse and it blows again, powerside is defective.little bit tricky then as you have diodes, capacitor and magnatron also transformer to check. these need testing equipt.if you decide to press on, caution, capacitor is fully charged and dangerous.

Sounds like its running, but will not heat

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave, model# MWV150KBA, sounds like it is running but will not heat. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

Once power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock" button once for AM and twice for PM, enter in the time, and press the "Clock" button again.

Put a cup of water in for about a minute. If the water does not get warm, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your microwave and determine why it is not heating. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My LG LRMP1270ST microwave oven stopped working in the morning. It just flat died when I put 2:00 minutes on the timer and pressed start I heard the pop/breaking sound. So immediately I stopped the...

The main fuse has blown in the microwave, you also have secondary problem that sounds like the magnetron has failed, but there are two other parts to consider, the high voltage capacitor and diode work in conjunction with the magnetron to heat the food. The repairs could run as high as a new microwave oven.

Hi Bill. it is possible that you may have just blown a fuse. Check the fuse and replace if it blows again check all the diodes in the power supply. If one reads in foward and reverse bias please replace dides should only read in one direction. If these diodes are not shorted check all the diode in the microwave especially the large one connected to the large capacitor. Make sure you discaharge the capacitor before troubleshooting this section because it can shock you even when the microwave is unplugged. If any diodes are shorted replace them this will fix your problem.

I have a Hamilton Beach 0.9 Cubic Feet 900-Watts Digital Microwave Oven and I can not find out how to change the power setting for cooking.

Assuming its the same as my Hamilton Beach, you first enter the cooking time, but don't press start yet, instead press power, then a number button 1 - 9 for the power level 1 for 10%, 2 for 20% etc. THEN press start as normal

Good morning: ) may I ask you a question about my

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If some keys are still not working, then you likely have a bad keypad.

I would need your brand and full model number to give you a free estimate.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....

Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?

Don't understand how to set the power levels

Is your full model number MW8675? If not, please post your full model and let me try again.

Normally you press Time (or Time Cook) then the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 (which stands for 10% to 90% power level), then Start.

On some models you just press the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 then Start.

Many Emerson microwave manuals are available for free download here:

If your is not there, try one with a number close to yours.
