SOURCE: no power

Usually they do have fuses in side as well as the one in the mains plug. With microwaves I would get an engineer rather than take it apart yourself.

SOURCE: need help with model # mw8115ss 1450 watts microwave problem???

The fault may be on the system controler board. This may be a protection fault, or a fault with the logic control.

You can call the place where you bought the oven to find out where it can be serviced in your area. Most likely the tech will change the system controler board, or if there is factory authorized component level fix he will do that for you.

This is not something you will be able to service yourself.

SOURCE: Microwave turns on and counts down but won't heat up/cook

Ok just figured this out! It is a problem with the alignment on the lower door switch. I took the cabinet off and lifted up on the door switch slightly and voila! It works. You could probably fix this without taking it apart, just lift up on the door ever so slightly. I hope this works for you.

I bought my emerson microwave 3 years ago model# mw8115ss from walmart and have had all the problems that everyone has talked about and I thought about throwing it away until I thought about one small detail, the FUSE. China uses junky glass fuses that burst instantly with a slight power outage, door slamming to hard, moving it around, and of course constant use like myself always heating up water for bottles. I took the back of the microwave off and walla!!! a blown fuse, but wait!!! dont buy another glass fuse!!! go to your local home depot and get the ceramic fuse for microwave ovens!!! they are $2.83 at my local home depot. I replaced the junky glass fuse with the ceramic one and it has worked perfectly for six months now.

DONT let someone tell you that you cant replace a glass fuse with a ceramic one because they are full of boloney. My microwave did all kinds of things, it wouldnt turn sometimes, it would come on by itself, it would beep for no reason, turn but not heat up, you name it I had the problem. When a fuse starts to go out it can make your appliances do some strange things, check the fuse and replace it with a CERAMIC one and I promise it should eliminate your problem.

I need a microwave guide cover for model mw8115ss


Buy a sheet of mica. It's cheap and easy to work with. Draw and cut a new cover from a sheet and replace the damaged one. There's a example of how cheap mica is (I just used a sheet like that today on my Miele microwave).

Don't try punching holes in mica, always drill them gently. It will easily flake.

Model mw8115ss suffix a Emerson Microwave not working


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a misaligned door.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or 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:.

Emerson microwave oven model number MW8115SS


You don't state how old your oven is, or if you tried other food items afterwords. I also assume you inspected for foreign metal objects in the oven? If it does this whenever you attempt to cook in it, then it sounds as if your oven may have a wave guide cover malfunction or burned area.This part can be replaced by the consumer in most cases, but only after consulting with a trained technician or your parts supplier.
