Question about Sanyo EM-U1000W Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Sanyo Em-u1000w I can only enter 1 and 2 on the time pad.  When I enter the numbers it won't cook and very small "time" appears in the upper right corner and begins blinking.  Then all the numbers erase, and the screen just says clock in the bottom left corner. I no longer have the manual and I have only had the microwave for a year.  It has done this before, but eventually starts working fine again??? any suggestions.

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Microwave blowing fuses

Sanyo isn't that great of a manufacturer.. I had a microwave from them a few years back that did the same thing.. The wiring inside the microwave is shot.. if you were to open it up, you'd probably see some burnt wires from a short. If you use the microwave over a range, it may be because of grease build-up...

anyhow, its better that you invest in a new microwave, rather than fix it. It will be much more cost efficient

Microwave won't shut off

the timer is more than likely broken. There are no replacement parts and the mocrowave will need to be replaced...or keep the door open when not in use, and use a watch to keep track of cook times

Microwave will not work

This is still under warranty, so I would not recommend voiding your warranty by attempting repair.

I would call Sanyo at the number in your manual and ask for the nearest authorized servicer so you can take it in for repair on their dime.

If it's an over the range model, I would make sure to have a second person to help remove it from the wall.

If I had to bet, I'd say thge temperature fuse / thermal fuse / thermostat on the magnetron is open, but it may be the power fuse.

Please post back if you need more help, or if you decide to work on it yourself.

Sanyo EM-P740w

It looks like you would enter the cooking time then press POWER 1 to 10 times. Once = 100%, twice = 90%, thrice = 80%, and so on, and "PL#" will appear in the display where "#" is the selected power level. On some models, twice = 80% and thrice = 60%, etc. and "80%", or "60%", etc., will appear in the display. Then press START. Did that do it?

Microwave runs when door open

This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files by searching at (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!
