Question about Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave Oven

Turntable not turning

My Magic Chef just conked out on me, the timer works, its just that when I press start, there are no lights on inside and the turntable won't budge. So far I've gathered from the other posts that this might be a fuse, capacitor or transformer problem, can anyone narrow it down?

Much thanks

My Magic Chef Microwave turntable doesn't turn. It is a new (or newer unit) Everything else works fine. Just doesn't heat evenly because it isn't turning. Suggestions?

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.

Turntable, lights and fan inop


sounds like a cross wire, and a short. I'd inspect the socket for the bulbs to ensure that there's no short circuit.

What causes vibration with the turntable?


It could be the turntable motor but you need to check for food debris under the 3 point stand that the platter rests on. Take the stand out of the oven and check the wheels etc, Magic Chef Microwave Turntable Motor 3966820810

Magic chef microwave runs backwards with door closed and no time set - works normally when time is set and door is closed - any ideas?


Probably a bad door switch or door switch mount. See help file here.

It's normal for a microwave turntable to run either direction at random. That's common in such AC motors.

There are two things that come to mind, the magnetron is starting to fail, or the strapping has come loose on the fan motor housing, unplug microwave oven and remove top, [several screws] carefully inspect the fan for any loose mounts and tighten.

Turntable


The turntable motor is defective, since it is 6 months old your warranty should cover the repair or replacement of the microwave oven.

Help I inadvertently, turned the microwave on instead of the timer. It burned the bottom of the microwave, is there anything I can do? It cracked the turntable and melted the plastic holder. Everything...


You will need to replace the damaged parts.

For more help from Magic Chef / Ewave see here or their contact page or order parts here.

You can download owner's manuals for many Magic Chef models here.

If the cavity metal of the oven is charred or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

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