Question about Emerson MW8119SB Microwave Oven
I have tried pressing the stop and power level buttons to clear the power level back to 100% (default setting) and the problem persists
Your circuit board has a small chip in it that allows the settings to be changed. The chip has gone bad. Usually any good electronics repair person can fix the problem. Ask your local dealer for a reference.

Testimonial: "Thank you for finding the instruction manual for me. I now can set whatever time I wish on my microwave!"
Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

Sounds like a keypad problem. A bad keypad may be worn out due to age, damaged, or it may have gotten wet or otherwise contaminated. Moisture and contamination can be caused by not using the fan when boiling on the stove top (for over the range models), direct spraying of cleaners, by storing the microwave in an unheated garage or shed, or infestation. I warn my customers to never spray cleaner directly onto the microwave keypad, since the liquid can get inside and "lock up" or even ruin the keypad or controller. Apply an alcohol-based cleaner (such as the purple kind) to a cloth (since paper towels can scratch) and gently wipe it off. I suggest to my customers that they NEVER use any ammonia-based cleaner (like the blue stuff) on a microwave, since the ammonia will crack and distort polycarbonate plastics. If you think you or a friend may want to take a look, please reply here and I can follow up with more targeted information.
