Since the owner's manual doesn't cover it, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

SOURCE: my magic chef micro does not work. I replaced the

In many brands, there is a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At
our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some questions to help you or someone you know troubleshoot it:

When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

If not, then you probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount and should see these files:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

If the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable are all coming on, then the problem is in the high voltage section, and then the next questions arise:

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

If there's no unusual noise, it may just be a bad connection at the magnetron.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for high voltage section test help, but read the safety warnings first:


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have

two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

its a connection problem probally from a bump while driving the camper - you can dismantle the microwave yourself from the back and reconnect the jared wiring, or just replace it with an industrial one that can handle the camper abuse.

Where is fuse located, magic chef mco153sf microwave oven

Cylindrical fuse is located inside a cylindrical casing (approx. 2 inches long), found suspended amongst the wiring.

The fuse is NOT fixed to a circuit card nor another fixed point in the microwaves, as is common with other microwaves.

The microwave fuse keeps blowing up. Any idea why?


My Magic Chef microwave keeps blowing fuses (5 fuses) when close the door. Anybody has any idea? It is the first and last time time that I buy Magic Chef's products if their enginers don't come out with a solution because I just got it just over a year.
Thanks for your time and your expertise.

I just installed an over the range Magic Chef microwave and all controls seem to work properly however, it will not cook or heat anything. Am I correct in assuming the magnatron is faulty.


Sometimes there is a separate fuse for the magnatron circuit. Sometimes the fuse is the culprut, and sometimes it is the control board. Usually when magnatrons fail, they smoke or go bang or both.
I would look for a blown fuse first, and then look for a factory authorised service center.

Best of luck.

Microwave won't Work


sounds like a fuse for starters, remove outer cover there will be a white cartridge appx 1"longX1/8"dia this is a ceramic fuse avail at most hardware stores in 15 or 20 amp configurations, if this blows again after repl suspect a faulty H.V. Diode/H.V. Capacitor, or the magnetron tube unless while inside unit you see something obviously wrong 2 fuses are under $5.00
