Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Smoking ,over heating and 'hot' to the touch

I purchased this emerson mw8998b in April 09'. it worked great in the beginning but as of late it really gets hot inside and outside. I only use it for reheating a plate of food or cooking a potato. I follow directions from the pamphlet which came with it,but its continuing to do the same thing and seems to be getting worse. I can't return it because I got rid of the box due to storage issues in my small apartment. it cost $59.00 from Targets and I simply can't afford to buy another microwave at this time and I shouldn't have to. what can I do,please? My fixed disability income just can't make another adjustment to afford a new microwave oven.

The capacitor that runs the magnetron in your microwave is bad take the microwave back! It has become dangerous! box or, no box they must replace it. they can check the serial# to see that they sold it and, that you bought it. It's too new to fail.

Hi I have an Emerson microwave oven MW8998B. The turn table will not rotate while cooking. The smaller bags of popcorn just burn the bag. Does this need a repairman or can I fix it myself. Also, I am able...


Hi, I had the same problem with my Emerson microwave. As I rent out the house, and the turntable stopped working while I was away, my rental agent bought another Emerson microwave. On my return I tried using the new (brown) plastic turntable on the old microwave, and found it worked perfectly. Maybe it would be possible for you to order a replacement turntable part. Hope this helps. Good luck, Rosalind

Where can I take my Emerson Microwave to be repaired? Microwave begin to spark where light bulb is and smoke, leaving a burnt smell in the air.


Check the wires for the door switches make sure they are not touching. If they are pull them apart and put new ends on or just some electrical tape.

Microwave exploded.


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