Mcb780w won't work

I've had this for less than a year. Yesterday it was working and my roommate went to use it next and it was completely blank and unresponsive. We tried different outlets but it's like it's receiving no power.

Chances are its the fuse on the circuit board. You will have to remove the outer shell of the unit to access it.

MCB780w turn table not working


It may just need 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 that fails, it may have a bad turntable motor, coupler, or a problem in the circuit that powers it.

Microwave will not heat


The problem is the magnetron, "heart of the microwave oven" or the inverter board if 7 years old or less.

Since you did not give the model number I can't look it up. But most microwaves have a fuse or fuseable link to controls power to your unit. Unfortunately, it is only normally accessable for the interior. Suggest you go to sears parts direct and plug in your model number and see if there is a fuse or fuseable link for your unit.

The buttons on the front stopped working, no display


It is still under warrantee if under a year. Contact your dealer who you bought it from-it should be repaired or replaced free of charge.

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.

Magic chef touch pad doesnt work


I don't have Magic chef, however, I would try hitting cancel, unplugging the microwave and waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in to reset it. Alternatively, you could go to your manual under troubleshoooting. I wish that I could help you more with this. Good luck to you. Please let me know if you figure this one out.

Defective microwave


I would definitely contact the manufacturer since most of them have a one year parts & labor warranty and they'll fix it free.

If you have your owner's manual, you can find their number. If not, please reply back with your brand and model number (or brand at least) so we can help you.

Sounds like a bad door switch or relay, and also possibly a bad magnetron or high voltage diode.

Mcb780w


So it's running even with the door open? If not, please reply back with more details. If so, here's my initial answer:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
