Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven

2 Answers

I also have a one year old microwave that starts on its own.

The microwave will turn itself on ( seems to be the popcorn programmed button). I have to keep the darn thing unplugged when not in use.

My start button isn't working....I can press the "popcorn" button and it will automatically turn itself on and cook whatever I have placed in the microwave, but nothing happens when I press the "start"...


If it will start automatically without using the 'start' button, the 'start' button must be bad. If the door sensing switch was bad, it wouldn't start at all. It needs a new keypad. The most common cause of a keypad failure is from spraying a cleaner on it instead of using a just barely damp cloth to clean it. The liquid can run down the front of the laminated keypad and get into the bottom and seep up into the lamination....

My plate just cracked while microwaving popcorn


Make sure you don't put any dishes in the microwave with something like popcorn because they retain more heat and have nothing to transfer the heat too. If you mean the built in spinning plate that you set stuff on and you have an older model the fan might be broken. Something similar happened to my microwave as it is pretty old i just removed the panels and cleaned everything/blew it off with an air hose and it started working again. I'd check with the manufacturers also!

Microwave burns popcorn. what part is defective?


If the microwave functions normally while cooking everything else, but is only burning popcorn, there is no component problem that will cause this. You cannot adjust or replace any internal component to make it not burn popcorn. All power levels and program options are contolled by the consumer at the control panel. Refer to your owner;s manual for their recommendations.

If the oven is equipped with a popcorn feature button, it is programmed for a recommended power level and time. This is an ESTIMATED program feature. The manufacturers of both the oven and the popcorn will also give directions that tell you to turn the oven off when the popping slows to about a pop every 2 seconds. Failure to do so can result in burning.

If the microwave does not come with a popcorn feature button, the manufacturers of the popcorn have directions on the outside of the box that tell you what POWER LEVEL and TIME to set the oven on for the desired result. Again, the you still have to listen as the bag pops to ensure it does not burn.

In addition, on some microwave ovens, there is a feature that allows you to select the SIZE of the popcorn bag. Some popcorn manufacturers have smaller snack size bags that don't take as long to pop. You have to select the appropriate size to get the correct program option.

In any case, you never are to place popcorn in a microwave oven and walk away from it. All these program features are ESTIMATIONS based on manufacturers testing and recommendations for the best results. All microwave ovens are different and operate at different power levels. Your best judge is to listen as it pops.

I hope this helps you.

The micro wave heats but won't pop popcorn. We do more time than required but 50 - 70 % OF THE KERNELS DON'T POP.


How old is your popcorn? If it's over a year old in the pantry and not in the fridge it tends to dry out/shrible inside. Or...note that these days instructions indicate between 2 types:
regular hot air popping method and microwave friendly popcorn. You can buy hot air poppers cheaply at many resale shops.

Microwave turns itself off after a couple of seconds


Q - My microwave seems to shut off every once in a while, what might be wrong?
A - Make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.
Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.
Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.

Oven turns off


Hi,

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!
