Question about Emerson Microwave Ovens
Emerson Microwave, with turntable. Model AR733, produced in 1986 (purchased at that time) 1) The 'start' button seems to be jammed, it will no longer depress. As if something is preventing it to push into the appliance, something is 'blocking' it. Thus, it will not operate. 2) Also, the timer knob broke off (hard handling), can that be replaced? Other than the two items of concern, after 22 years, this appliance works wonderful. Help?
The button is stuck because of food buildup over the years underneath the button, this happens even to newer ones after about a year of use, new microwaves are cheap and the lower end models start at only $35 from walmart I would reccomend buying a new one, newer microwaves use less power and are more effecient so a new one will pay for itself in saved electricty costs after about 2-3 years of use.

If one of the door interlock switches
is not switching properly or there is a condensation problem on the
sensor control panel, either can cause the turntable/light/oven to
come on even though the "Start" button has not been
depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.
