Most like a bad control panel/board with the symptoms that you are describing. Unfortunately the cost of replacing this part is about the cost of a new microwave, so you would actually be better off replacing it rather than fixing it but then again if you feel the need to replace the part, you can find it on the following website link http://www.repairclinic.com/Emerson-Parts?s=t-MW8991SB-%3d%3db162&z=100

If replacing the part wouldn't fix the problem, you can return the part within 30 days. Let me know how this turns out.

    The control board is almost always the problem in this case unless you find a burnt fuse which is what you should also check, they will be blackened if you have a bad one or will read infinite resistance if you use an ohm meter to test the fuses.

My turn table doesn't turn on my microwave (Emerson MW8991SB)


Replacement of the turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

But here is a basic methos if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access is obtained usually by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate, sometimes it must be cut out with sharp cutters, and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Fit the new motor and fit the inspection cover back on the base by turning it to fit and using an extra screw fix it then put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

I have a recently purchased microwave since CHristmas. It was working wonderfully. Recently, I moved and plugged the microwave back in. THe light is on but will not program anything. I tried to plug into...


We have the same model. It's a piece of garbage. I loved the retro oval window and all and the size was perfect for our space. Then, the paint started chipping off the inside front, the timer started working intermittently, and the oven would just quit in the middle of the cooking cycle! Today, it finally just up and died. I unplugged and replugged it. No go. Finished cooking on stove top. My suggestion? Do like we're going to do and go buy another microwave...not another GE!

Good luck! Peacenikkie@charter.net
