Question about Emerson MW8168B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave exploded. The Microwave I have is an Emerson Model Number MW8119SB manufactured in 2007 but was bought at Walmart in April 2008 . It stopped working within 6 months of purchase. It made a sound like a small explosion and stopped working. What could cause this and would it be worth fixing?

Did it make a popping noise, like a .22 cal pistol? Probably one of the larger capacitors on the power supply blew up.

    Of course, my 'solution' doesn't take into account if someone was trying to cook a pot pie in the oven that was still in its metal baking pan...



    My opinion is that if it costs less than about $139 it is not worth fixing...

Emerson Microwave Model MW8119SB found blown fuse. Replaced fuse power came back punched in 10 sec started microwave and fuse blew again.


Chances are that either the diode or capacitor are shorted. Be very careful, the capacitor can store a charge and should be discharged first for safety. Hope that helps...

I have a emerson microwave that has stopping heating, model #mw8119sb, please help me


Emerson may be able to tell you which part has failed but you may have to have the unit looked at be a small appliance repair person. Send Emerson an email to internet@emersonradio.com with your model number and the problem you're having. If the unit is out of warranty, it may be cheaper to replace the microwave depending on what you paid for it. Keep in mind that the labor on any repair will be a minimum of $50 if you have to take it someone's shop, and that doesn't include the price of the part. Any part needed would be purchased from Fox International who's the part distributor for Emerson. They wouldn't know which part you need, however, because they're just a large parts store. Below is the link for Emerson's website.

Emerson MW8119SB microwave turns on, but it does not heat.


You have a defective magnetron or blown fuse supplying power to magnetron.

Emerson Microwave MW8119SB not turning on


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.
