There are several things that could cause a microwave not to heat. Most common is the magnatron and some models have up to a 5 yr warranty on that part. Check the owners manual for that info.

SOURCE: paint peeling inside microwave

If the unit has been operating properly for some time with no issues, I would say it is fine to continue to use. The issue I would have would be with the possibility with the paint falling into the food.

It would be interesting for you to call the manufacturers' support line and ask why this is happening. Maybe they will offer you a replacement if it was a manufacturing process defect. Mention that the paint may have fallen into the food.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Was cleaning inside of microwave and noticed the

Hi Bonnie,

Do not use the microwave with the exposed metal surface.

What you can do is pick up some appliance touch up paint, it comes in a small plastic bottle with a brush. It looks similar to fingernail polish. It should be available at an appliance store such as Sears, Lowes, Home Depot etc.

Clean the area good and use sandpaper or steel wool if needed to make sure the area is smooth and clean. Then use the touch up paint to recoat the surface. Let dry before using the microwave oven, usually a couple hours or so.

How do you set the power level


If you have a power level button---press it and then enter 1-0 for 10. Most microwaves automatically come on at power level 10 or Hi power unless you pick a different option like the defrost button which is usually power level 3.

My microwave oven siows down and then speeds up.


Is it still heating food properly? You can perform a basic test with a microwave safe mug or plastic cup of water. It should be boiling or too hot to touch within 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to overheat the cup if plastic and use extreme caution when touching or removing it from the microwave.

If it is not heating properly then the magnetron may be faulty and unit should be replaced.

Can you tell what specifically is speeding and slowing? Is it the turntable or the humming sound of the unit itself? Many microwaves vary their intensity in order to heat/cook evenly and that will vary the pitch of the sound you hear and sound like it is speeding up or slowing down. If the turntable is slowing and speeding up then there may be a bad motor and the unit should probably be replaced.

If the unit is heating adequately and the turntable speed is uniform then what you may be hearing is simple power cycling and/or fan noise.

Only trained and certified technicians should attempt repair of microwaves due to the hazards of high voltage and microwave radiation leakage if parts are not replaced properly. Although you can have a microwave repaired the cost may be equal to, or higher than, the cost of an equivalent new unit for a 900w microwave.

if the unit starts to spark then you can buy microwave paint but if it goes through the door or the base then a professonal repair is best,clean the rust with rubbing paper and coat with thin layers let each one dry and build up a good layer of paint,hope this helps.

How many watts does Emerson MW8675W Microwave have?


Is the cubic foot size of the microwave on the name plate?? It seems that with Emerson the size relates closely to the wattage .. 0.9 cu ft is 900 watts, 1.1 cu ft is 1000 watts .. 0.7 cu ft is 700watts .. That would be the closest info I can get.

Please vote !!

1 Answer

General electrics microwaves


If it is a counter-top model, I would guess between 700 and 900 MHz.

With the size of the model (in cu. ft.) and the model number, I could more definitively answer your question.

My microwave is also from that era, though not GE.. however, the MHz is clearly labeled on the inside my microwave, not on the back. If you haven't already, look for such a label inside yours.

If there's any more I can help you with, let me know.
