Question about Magic Chef Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Help I inadvertently, turned the microwave on instead of the timer. It burned the bottom of the microwave, is there anything I can do? It cracked the turntable and melted the plastic holder. Everything works on the outside, but I am frightened to use it incase it catches fire. Is there anything I can do Carolyn

You will need to replace the damaged parts.

For more help from Magic Chef / Ewave see here or their contact page or order parts here.

You can download owner's manuals for many Magic Chef models here.

If the cavity metal of the oven is charred or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Samsung SMH1611 microwave clock/tImer is intermittently malfunctioning. Microwave will not count down.

This is often just a bad connection on the bottom of the noise filter board. Look for burns and ring cracks. See the attached photos. For disassembly info, you can watch the video at my site, or see these text files: If that doesn't fix it, it may be that the bottom door switch is bad, or its mount is loose, misaligned, or broken. See my help file on door switches here.
Also see the Fast-Track manual for model SMH1611 here.
Feel free to contact me directly (see below) if you have other questions.

Wife ran for 14 min w/out anything in it changed fuse no luck

You need to change the cavity thermostat. The unit got too hot and blew the cavity thermostat. If this is a vent-a-hood model, it will be up under the vent housing at the top (must drop microwave to change) and if built-in, it will be on the left side under the outer cover. Just remove the screws from the back and sides and right along the edge along the bottom sides. Will have 2 wires going to it from each side. Just replace thermostat and reattach molex plugs. Then retest. Should be fine after that.

Good Morning, My mother-in-law tunred the microwave on for 1 hour instead of using the timer. It now appers comletely dead. Anything we can do Or time to buy a new one?

Aounds like ***********-in-law cooked the magnetron. If a microwave runs for an extended period with nothing in it, the magnetron (thing that makes the microwaves) is likely to have failed.

Help the environment and don't throw it away, find your local Maytag service center, by using to locate your local agent.

Microwave turned on when empty

The magnetron will be damaged and now emit low output as there is nothing to absorb the energy.
I would dispose of it and get a new one.
