Emerson MW8168B Microwave

I've had this microwave for 3 years. Yesterday while in the middle of defrosting it just shut off. No power to the clock - it's dead. Of course I checked the outlet and tried to plug it into another outlet with no luck. What died and can I order the part and fix myself?

Power shuts off periodically

1) this occur to due some connector need tightneting or resoldering in the board.(coolder joint)

Whirlpool GH5184XPS-7 microwave oven dead, no power.

The problem is in the magnetron or the inverter board.

I have a Model R-9H83 that I bought in 1992. It's been working like a top. Yesterday, all of a sudden, the unit doesn't power up. Dead to the world. I've looked for a fuse or CB but...

may be cracked solder connections on the circuit board itself. remove and check. of course, check the fuse and mag/oven cavity themos too.

Control Panel "clock Buttom" dead

Sounds like your keypad has failed, and on some models it's not available separately, so you have to buy the entire control panel assembly.

You have to remove the controller (see the video here) then unplug the keypad strip (see photo below) then move your circuit board to the new control panel assembly (part #
WB07X10798 if that's the right one for your model).

See exploded views
here. You can find this part for $101.91 here (compared to $163.50 from G.E.!).

We have a frigidaire microwave and in the middle of cooking, the motor stopped. The clock and cook time continued to work, but no heat. We've tried using at half power, on defrost, etc. but nothing seems...

What you are saying the microwave stop work like heating,but but the clock counts down.If it is stop heating then there is a rest on or near the magtrogron.Once it cools down it start back heating.Open and close the door will reset power to the magtrogen{sorry about the spelling].Look for loose connector,or replace the click zon it should have a small red buttom on it.

Demo Mode

Unplug the microwave for at least 3 minutes, then plug it back in, and BEFORE SETTING THE CLOCK, press and hold power level and start for three seconds. This should flash "demo mode off". Set the clock as normal. Enjoy!

Microwave just went dead

If there is no display and nothing works it may be as simple as a blown fuse. Try that first but unplug the unit before you do anything.

Clock Trips

Are you saying that the oven seems to shut off while cooking? Does it also happen if you cook at full power? This may be a bad connection on the controller (which we repair) or a failing magnetron. Please give usd a little more detail so we can follow up.
