Question about Emerson MW8987B/W Microwave Oven
Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that
produces the microwave that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron
is about 95% of the cost of a microwave .
Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace
the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a
possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is
faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads
and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from
its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
