As we calculate it:
P=V*I, where P: Power (Watts); V: Source tension (V); I: Current (Amps).
If the oven is a 1000W and the source 115Vac, the demanded current is:
I=P/V
I=1000W/115V
I=8.7Amps plus the security factor.

That should be stated on the model number tag.

If not, a typical 1000W microwave will draw 13-15 amps from a 110/120V line.

Model MW8104SS draws right at 13 amps, according to the owner's manual.

### I bought a used Emerson microwave from a neighbor moving out of the building. He did not have an Owner's Manual to give me. I'm trying to find one online but there are so many models that Emerson makes. Is...

The model that you show in the picture is the MW8107WA which has that model number right on the microwave just at the very bottom of the keypad. I'm guessing that you've already looked in the back of yours for a metal plate or sticker that lists your model number on it. Sometimes this information can be found where the door latch meets the door handle on the inside of the microwave.

The manual for the model you have pictured can be found on this very site.
It's here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/p113437-emerson_mw8107wa_1000_watts_microwave/manual-11318

The instructions are all pretty basic as far as preset buttons and setting the clock and whatnot and so they should pretty much apply to most of the microwaves that Emerson has available.
As far as the instructions regarding weight defrosting of meats and poultry that's usually trial and error anyway.

The best way I know of to see as many pictures of Emerson Microwaves as possible would be to put the words:
Emerson Microwaves
into Google and then click the link for "images" (found near the top upper left the page) instead of the "search" button.

That should bring up plenty of pictures of their microwaves.

### MW8107WA 1000 Watts How do I set the time? .

Cant find a manual, but on most microwaves, the clock is set by pressing the 'Clock' key, then the numbers for the time, and pressing the 'Clock' key again.

### Emerson MW8107WA Microwave causing apartment fuse blow

It seems that something within the microwave must have fried in the power supply unit. This should not be a very expensive repair, However, get a technician t take a look and give you a rough estimate before you decide to repair.

### Glass top of oven

This is something out of an Emerson MW8107WA microwave?

I knew they used glass turntable trays...

If this is not right, could you repost the correct brand and model number?

Thanks very much.

### Fuse problems.

Microwave fuses are usually located inside on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel or on the door switch mount between the switches. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If you do need a new fuse, it will be a 15- or 20-amp ceramic fuse, and they are available at local home centers, home improvement stores, hardware stores, and appliance parts stores.
