Magic chef MCD1611ST microwave, the display lights up, the time and powerlevel can be set, the light works when the door is open but when i hit start everything shuts off. Any suggestions?

There are a lot of possible causes, but I'd look at the door switches first, and the wiring connectors to them. Make sure the contacts on all the switches are opening and closing.

My Magic Chef microwave oven blows fuse when i open door

If you're blowing fuses from opening the door that is the sign of a electrical short . You'll need to call a electrician to check it out. Changing the fuse in this unit can kill you. There's a capacitor that holds stored electrical energy that is dangerous. My good friend died from trying to change the fuse in his. Get a professional to check it.

Magic chef mcd1611st fuse keeps blowing when door is closed

Only time I have run into that problem, there was a bad micro-switch for the door. First thing make sure that you un-plug the microwave. You will have to take the outside cover off and look for a series of small switches mounted on a frame where the door latches. If you have access to a multi-meter you can check the switches for continuity. Easiest way is to remove that frame making sure that you mark or write down what color wires go each switch and then remove the wires. It may be immediately visible which switch is bad but if not check each switch with the meter. Your contacts will be a common terminal and either a normally open (NO) or normally closed terminal (NC) and sometimes both. The "NO" terminal will not have continuity until you press the switch button, the "NC" terminal will have continuity all of the time until you press the button. If you do not have any continuity at all or if you have continuity on one terminal no matter which way you push the button, that will be your bad switch. Hope this helps.

Blows fuse when you open door

Be-safe, Un-plug your microwave oven ,

Open the microwave cover ,
Close and open door few times to check the door latch(es) and switch(es).
Door switch assembly may has one or more micro switches.( Most switches are black or grey and about 1,25 in long X 3/4 in wide X 5/6 in thick with two or three wire connections).
Making sure door latch close and open these micro-switches.

You can hear the switch "clicks" when small switch pin or lever is pressed.

Sometime these door micro-switches pin or lever get stuck or broken.

You can take couple pictures before remove wires or micro switches

You can buy these switches for about 3-7 dollars online. Some web sites have video showing how to check them. (Using Volt-Ohm meter)

Magic chef microwave runs backwards with door closed and no time set - works normally when time is set and door is closed - any ideas?

Probably a bad door switch or door switch mount. See help file here.

It's normal for a microwave turntable to run either direction at random. That's common in such AC motors.

My Magic Chef microwave tripped a breaker,I found a melted door switch and replaced it, the other three test ok.With the door closed everything works like new. When the door is opened the breaker blow

The only thing I can think of is check to make sure all switches are aligned correctly otherwise you will keep tripping the breaker, I'am certain that one of your switches are not properly in position.

There is a fuse inside that is probably blown. If you replace it and it keeps blowing the fuse when you open and close the door, that means a problem with the door switches sequence. I could run you through that step by step.......

Will run but not heat , majic chef, model mcd990arw

check the door switches ... they are probably burned preventing preventing the machine from knowing the door is closed.
