Model # MCO160UB goes off while cooking

I have a model # mC0160UB and several times while cooking it just goes off. In a couple of minutes it comes back on. We have checked the power source and there is power. It does not flip the breaker.

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.

My microwave shuts off after cooking for 1 minute or two. display goes blank and then 3 or 4 minutes later the display comes back on again.


You didn't mention your brand or model number, but it sounds like it may be a noisy magnetron.

See this FixYa solution. even if your model number is different.

When I close the door the microwave display goes completely out and the unit is not operable for at least 5-10 minutes, i thought it was the thermal cutout below the turntable (by the bulbs), but after...


Interesting...

If the display goes out immediately upon closing the door, but comes back on by itself later, that would be quite a mystery.

If you close the door then it goes out in a couple of minutes, then I would suspect that the oven is cooking anytime the door is closed, but the cooling fan is not running, leading to overheating and shutdown of the thermostat on the magnetron. Then when it cools down, the magnetron's thermostat resets and the unit powers back up.

You didn't mention your model number, but since you psoted this under Frigidaire FMV156, I'll take a chance that's it.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

If yours is a different model, please feel free to contact me directly with that model number and I may be able to point you to the service manual and give you free diagnosis help.

My mother just bought an Emerson MW8119 Microwave and can't figure out how to only set say 15 seconds cook time. Is it possible?


Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.

If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.

The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.

Hope this helps!

OTR Amana microwave- No power, lights, clock or sounds.


Either your magnetron, cooling fan, or the magnetron thermostat is failing.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Amana / Whirlpool customer service is here.

Please contact them to find your nearest authorized service center.
