If you don't have your manual, you can download it here:
http://emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8115SS.PDF

The manual will also have contact info for Emerson in case you want to check with them on this.

The magnetron may be going bad, and they usually have a warranty of several years on that.

How do i get the back off my emerson microwave


Screws are probably on the bottom of the microwave - then the whole side and top come off - then you have access to the back - i doubt it has an internal fuse though! I presume you have checked the plug fuse.

Be very careful - microwaves generate a massive electrical output and will fry you in a second!

I need instructions for 10in. microwave browner


Only place I've found is here: CorningWare Browner Instructions

As these dishes were designed by Corning for a 650 watt over, you can recalculate preheat and cooking times for your oven with the following formula:

650/(your oven's wattage) x (listed preheat time or cook time)

For example, for a Corning MW-9 dish, they list 4 minutes maximum preheat time. I have a 1,580 watt oven. So 650/1580 = .41 x 4 minutes = 1.64 minutes and about a minute and a half preheat. (MAX).

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS --


I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

The fan and light com on when the door is open and the carousel turns. When you close the door everything stops.


Check the door interlock switches, you may have a faulty switch or a blown fuse inside the microwave.

Model mw8115ss suffix a Emerson Microwave not working


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a misaligned door.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.
