Hi there,

Found the fault. It's the heat ring in the main oven. 
MAKE SURE THE MAINS POWER IS OFF PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS WORK!!!!!
1.Simply remove the four screws that fix the fan surround in the main oven.
2.Remove the rear cover fixing screws and remove the rear cover. ( the cable passes through this so just rest it to one side ).
3.Remove the two push on spade connectors from the heater element ( positioned just down and to the right of the fan assembly ).
4.Remove the four heater element fixing screws from inside the main oven.
5. The tricky bit. . . There is one more fixing at the top of the fan in the main oven. I could not get the fan off its spindle, but the next step sorted this out.
6.Remove the three fan fixings from the rear of the oven. This allows the fan to wobble/move enough in the oven to remove the final heater fixing screw at the top of the fan.
7.Pull the heater element into the main oven. No doubt it has a very grey and flakey appearance to part of it!
8.Buy a new one and replace it in reverse order, remembering to replace all fixing screws as you go.
9. If you forget which way the cables on the heater element go, the one with the red marks on it goes to the left as you look at the back of the oven from the outside. ( nearest the fan assembly )

Good Luck

Magic Chef over-the-range microwave oven doesn't cook. Clock, inside lights and turntable are fine


If it lights up, the fuse is fine. On all of the recent Magic Chef's I've repaired, the magnetron has been the cause of the problem you described. Another possible common culprit is the high voltage rectifier.

There's a fuse that has blown. look for it near the bulb socket or on the main board inside the unit.

Have a magic chef mco160uw microwave. Had a recent


No! there is no reset, the power surge has more than likely damaged the keypad controller, and on the back is a circuit board that has the microprocessor with additional components that controls the vital areas of the microwave oven. If that is gone, it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

Magic chef mco160uw Tray not turning and light off


The problem will be a bad relay, a component that drives the relay, or a broken trace on the circuit board.

This blown trace happens a lot when the cooktop lights blow.

Microwave not heating up food


This model is a lower-end type that probably didn't cost very much. Since it's over 2 years old, you have no warranty left. Most appliance repair shops charge extra $$ for servicing installed items in the home. You'd probably be better off purchasing a new comparable model. The labor fee alone might equal what you paid for it.

MICROWAVE WILL ONLY HEAT ON CERTAIN SETTINGS. how do i set the heating instructions?


I have a Magic Chef model MC0160UQ. Within 2-3 minutes of heating food it shuts off completely for about 5min. Also, when I select the low fan it does not work, however the high fan works. Please assist with these issues if possible. Am I able to fix or adjust the magnetron myself since it may be overheating? or what should i do?????

Turntable, lights and fan inop


I'm guessing that nothing is working...is that right? If so, first guess is the breaker or an internal fuse. Nearly all units have them. You don't say what fuse you checked. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and see what is in the socket. Next, open the breaker and then turn it back on. This will reset it. Something caused this.
