Likely the control panel needs a repair or replacement.

SOURCE: Touch control failed on GE Spacemaker Microwave HVM1540

If you want to order a touch pad, (it has the micro computer built in it!) and fix it that way, you'll still have a 2-3 year old machine.
I would say it would be quicker and cheaper to buy a new one.

Since the owner's manual doesn't cover it, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

SOURCE: I just installed an over the range Magic Chef

Sometimes there is a separate fuse for the magnatron circuit. Sometimes the fuse is the culprut, and sometimes it is the control board. Usually when magnatrons fail, they smoke or go bang or both.
I would look for a blown fuse first, and then look for a factory authorised service center.

Best of luck.

SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE LIGHT BULB IN MAGIC CHEF MICROWAVE

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

I have( had) A magic chef microwave model MCD11E3W I must have had a power surge in kitchen refrig and oven turned off circuit breaker turned off.. All other appliances came back on but the Microwave,,...


It ispossible that the secondary transformer has failed which is the feed of the voltage for the processor timer/clock unit. So check this out with a multimeter and you can get to buy the transformer as it is a step down low voltage type., normally mounted on the processor board.
Check also if the fuse has blown if so replace.
I dont think there could be any further damage.
Credit me if this helps.

Oven turns off


Hi,

You are running the risk of damaging the Magnatron by doing this.

Check the packets you are using, you will have to reduce your power output.

This is because microwaves act by being absorbed by water. There is very little in popcorn and in fat. Once this has been evaporated, the microwave energy builds up (as it is still being produced - but not absorbed), and ends up cooking the magnatron itself.

I have seen countless posts on here after cooking popcorn!

More fun on the hob anyway - and cheaper to buy in bulk!

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
