There won't be a reset button.

Is it dead? No display, no lights, etc.?

If your outlet is live but your microwave is dead, then you likely have an open internal fuse, thermostat or thermal cutout.

Please post back if you need more help and think you or a friend want to work on it.

Magic Chef microwave model#mco165ub cant seem to turn up the power level. when I hit the power level button it cycles through -20, 0 and +20 but nothing happens when I hit enter.

Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes. The microprocessor on the control panel may have locked up. Leave it unplugged for at least 15 minutes to see if it will reset.

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.

Microwave turned on by itself

Have you tried unplugging it than reapplying power ? Sometimes a power up reset will clear the logic on the control card and yes.. if it continues to run have a potential fire hazard...

You are running the risk of damaging the Magnatron by doing this.

Check the packets you are using, you will have to reduce your power output.

This is because microwaves act by being absorbed by water. There is very little in popcorn and in fat. Once this has been evaporated, the microwave energy builds up (as it is still being produced - but not absorbed), and ends up cooking the magnatron itself.

I have seen countless posts on here after cooking popcorn!

More fun on the hob anyway - and cheaper to buy in bulk!

I had the same problem. My Magic Chef, MCO153UBF Microwave had similar problems. The Magnatron, Cooling fan, Turn table and under hood lights were not working at all after hearing a pop sound under the control panel. Thought it was the fuse but the fuse was fine after testing and replacing. I checked the circuit breaker wired to my house and saw it had a break to my kitchen outlets so i flipped the switch to get back the kitchen outlets. Then I checked the microwaves Control Panel ( Printed Circuit Board) underneath and saw to traces were burnt. I soldered the two trace lines and the fixed the problem.

Microwave stopped working completely

Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.
