Question about Emerson Microwave Ovens
The control board is faulty
Posted on Jul 29, 2009
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.

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