Question about Magic Chef Microwave Ovens
I would suspect that the magnetron is overheating and that the magnetron's thermostat is cutting power until it cools down.
It may be overheating because the internal cooling fan is not running when you're cooking.
When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.
I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.
It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will soon be destroyed.
It may also be that your filter is clogged, or your exhaust ductwork is clogged.
