My Emerson key pad isn't working

I have an Emerson MW8999SB it still has power. It started to be difficult to press numbers, but when you got the buttons to work it would heat. The code DEF1 popped up a few times, and now none of the buttons are working.

SOURCE: Microwave key pad stopped working

Okay, thank you for that.

You have a failed membrane keypad, but on this model, it is not available separately.

You would need to order the control panel assembly, part # WB56X10817, which you can get here for far less than GE charges.

It costs more than just a membrane would, but is much simpler to replace.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you remove your circuit board from the old frame and install it in the new frame.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: After pressing the TIME button, the number pad does not react.

A hard reset, that is, removing the unit from the electric source and restarting it after a few seconds, solved the problem.

Emerson mw8119sbm power and light is on key pad doesn't work


I can't tell without more exploration what may be the cause, but 1st let's start fresh. Reset the MW by unplugging and replugging the unit. Then set up the clock, etc by following the manual. For reference, go to http://www.emersonradio.com/resources/owner_manuals/manual_1313021007.pdf for instructions. There are many interlock micro-switches that must all work when the door is closed. Take one step at a time, then come back.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....


Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

Emerson microwave not working 900 watts


The Emerson MW8999SB 0.9 cu. ft. 900 watt Microwave Oven is relatively compact, and certainly inexpensive, but doesn't skimp on functionality. We were surprised at all the options you get with this little microwave. It's only 20 inches wide, 11.3 inches high and 16.1 inches deep yet. The interior can still accommodate a regular size dinner plate or small (10-inch-square or round) casserole. Plus, there are 10 power levels, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, timed and automatic defrost options, and a rotating glass turntable to circulate the food for more even cooking.

We were very pleased with the performance of the Emerson MW8999SB. It did a fine job heating water for tea, cooking a couple of baked potatoes, reheating leftovers and steaming fresh vegetables. Even the automatic defrost proved surprisingly efficient, letting you enter the weight of the item(s) to be defrosted (4-100 ounces) for easy operation. Chicken breasts were almost fully defrosted after one cycle. We needed to stop and separate the food pieces to finish the defrost cycle.

The unit is styled mainly in black but has stainless steel trim around the door and control panel. The smooth touchpad control panel is attractive and easy to wipe clean. We loved the one-touch Express Cook buttons, which let you activate the unit at 100 percent power for 1-6 minutes, by pressing the corresponding number pad. We also appreciated extra touches such as the Start/+30 sec. button, which can be used to start the oven or add an extra 30 seconds each time it is depressed.

It's hard to go wrong when the functions are so simple. The only tricky part was identifying certain codes used on the display screen. When changing the power level, for instance, PL10 is displayed on the screen. Pressing the button additional times lets you toggle through the different levels. Likewise, the Auto Cook settings may need to be pressed multiple times to obtain the correct weight or portion for the food being cooked.

We were amazed that a machine costing so little also offered two-stage cooking, which lets you start cooking (or defrosting) on one setting and finish on another. All in all, the Emerson MW8999SB is an excellent value.


Pros: Touchpad controls, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, two-stage coking option
Cons: Limited interior capacity can only accommodate dishes up to 10 inches, no sensor

Emerson mw8999sb rattles when running?


It is probably the turntable glass platter that is rotating when the microwave oven is running, this is not uncommon and nothing to worry about.

Model MW8999SB is not heating anything?


If the microwave powers up and everything appears to work then the problem is the magnetron, "heats food and is the heart of the unit" it is cheaper to replace the whole oven rather having it repaired.

I have an emerson 900w microwave mw8999sb sn908003050mm. I have tried cooking in it and setting the timer at the same time to time something else that I am cooking. Can it be done with this type of...


The owner's manual is here, and it does not mention that as a feature.

One way to prove that is to press the "Kitchen Timer" pad while the oven is cooking and see if anything happens.

No modern microwave that we know of has this dual function, but it sounds interesting.
