Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn

Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ
microwave above stove 1600w
I hit the underside hard enough to cause the above stove light the burn out. At the same time I discovered the following items stopped functioning: turntable, interior light and fan(?), and vent fan. The unit still heats foods but we are concerned about using as is. I wonder if all these symptoms are related and if there is one fix for all.
thanks,
Joel

Replace lower door switch and then watch as all falls back into place. it may even be the switch holder that is bad and ejecting the switch rather than activating it causing all the above to function.

You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.

I have a Magic Chef microwave MCO160UB. I was cooking on the stove (microwave wasn't on) and the fan came on as it has done before. After a few minutes, it shut off and is now completely dead. I...


If the microwave is above the stove, the heat sensors in the microwave
may turn on fans to cool it even though the microwave itself is not
running. It tries to save its life. It should turn off when the stove is not
heating it.

Tin foil or steel plates in a microwave will burn it out. I suspect it is or has burnt out. Never put anything steel in a microwave.

Shuts down for 5 minutes


I have the same problem with my new magic cheff over the stove microwave oven. I call magic chef and they gave me the 800 number for the service center (1-800-775-0202). When I described the problem they told me to just put a plate under the popper and this wouldn't happen anymore. I haven't tried it yet but here's hoping.

Magic chef touch pad doesnt work


I don't have Magic chef, however, I would try hitting cancel, unplugging the microwave and waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in to reset it. Alternatively, you could go to your manual under troubleshoooting. I wish that I could help you more with this. Good luck to you. Please let me know if you figure this one out.

You can order it online from Magic Chef.

Microwave oven not functioning


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
