Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

It just died

The microwave is a little over five years old. It just simply died. I once fixed my moms by resetting it but I honestly have no idea where to begin with this one. I have pulled up the owners manual and unless you want to know how to plug it in or cook something in it, the manual is usless. Please give me some kind of help. My grandmother has an eleven year old microwave... I know this isn't all I'm getting out of this one... Or is it?

Check the AC line fuse. This will require you to remove cover.

Everything runs on my microwave but it will not get hot. what can i do to fix this problem?

The magnetron will more than likely need replacement, one of the most expensive parts in the microwave oven. If the item is more than five years old consider a new microwave oven

The switch button is not working..

Hi, kindly unplug the unit for five minutes. this will drain all power, and reset the main board. Once the five minutes have passed, simply plug the unit back into the power outlet. If the problem continues, the touch pad should be replaced asap.

Unsightly film on microwave after cleaning with bleach.

Purchase a stainless steel cleaner from anywhere. They usually have lemon oil in them that leaves a nice shine on the surface. You can even use furniture polish in a pinch it is about the same. An oil free choice would simply be window cleaner and paper towel. My moms old fashion secret to no streaks was newspaper for drying with. Works great. Good luck.

The microwave stops after a few seconds. It starts, but stops before the set time is completed. The oven is five years old.

Does the oven's key pad seem to reset like a breaker flipped inside? And after, you have to reset the clock? If so, check the temperature cutoff switches inside. Jumper across them and see if your microwave starts working correctly. I had this problem and the Bottom TCO was defective.

Turns on but not heating food sounds a bit louder

Hi, this is common in most microwaves. this abnormal noise is coming from a faulty Magnetron. this device is responsible for the heating process and, it is damaged and not heating at all at this point.Simply replace the Magnetron and, this unit will start to heat once more.

GE microwv-doesn't heat, strong electrical smell, all else ok

The most common problem would be your magnetron. Check your purchase date, magnetron's usually have a five year warranty. Not a part I recomend trying to fix yourself (high voltage ).

Cannot heat

Sounds like it overheated, tripped the thermostat, then the thermostat reset. Chances are you have a bad magnetron. GE may have a campaign (not a "recall", mind you!) to offer free replacements if yours is a model that has a known history of problems with the magnetrons. I would call GE and ask them about that. *grin* GE Answer Center 1-800-626-2005 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
