    I also have had my microwave for less than two years and it suddenly stopped working. If I open and shut the door a certain way, 0:00 will show up on the screen but as soon as I push any of the buttons, it dies again.

    Microwave totally stopped working: no power in, no lights on, nothing.

I just came on the internet to search the microwave, and mine is the 900W red version and i have only had it-well less than a year, and it just stopped. No noises, just stopped while i was defrosting some chicken. What the heck. Not cool.

I had a power surge in my house and my EMERSON 900W MICROWAVE OVEN MW8999RD control pad is not working. The lightbulb works and the tray spins slowly when I open the microwave door. However, nothing

I hope it's still under warranty. Think about getting a replacement, and about next time: Get a surge protection device between the oven and the wall plug! I have suffered from power surges in my house as well, and a surge protector is the only cure.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....

Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS

I bought my emerson microwave 3 years ago model# mw8115ss from walmart and have had all the problems that everyone has talked about and I thought about throwing it away until I thought about one small detail, the FUSE. China uses junky glass fuses that burst instantly with a slight power outage, door slamming to hard, moving it around, and of course constant use like myself always heating up water for bottles. I took the back of the microwave off and walla!!! a blown fuse, but wait!!! dont buy another glass fuse!!! go to your local home depot and get the ceramic fuse for microwave ovens!!! they are $2.83 at my local home depot. I replaced the junky glass fuse with the ceramic one and it has worked perfectly for six months now.

DONT let someone tell you that you cant replace a glass fuse with a ceramic one because they are full of boloney. My microwave did all kinds of things, it wouldnt turn sometimes, it would come on by itself, it would beep for no reason, turn but not heat up, you name it I had the problem. When a fuse starts to go out it can make your appliances do some strange things, check the fuse and replace it with a CERAMIC one and I promise it should eliminate your problem.
