  • aplusser Aug 15, 2008

    My microwave is doing the same thing. It wont heat up. Ive tried unplugging it, different settings etc. Sometimes it would take 20 minutes to heat something that normally took 2. Im so frustrated!!! Anyone know if there is a recall? Cool microwave but it only worked right for about 4 months!

    I have the same problem and i am interested in warrenty information. Microwave comes on, turntable works, and if i put on grill heats at about 5% maybe to help thaw outside of something!!

Ok i just opened mine up on counter and found that the white wire on the high voltage transformer had been loose and melted so i put a new female spade connector on and it works fine. i suspect that from a year of use and humm from transformer had loosen it and gotten hot thus loosing connection and getting dirty causing it to overheat and burn off plastic sheilding. easy fix!!!

The high voltage transformer connector is a defect in these microwave oven models. I do not recommend them. I purchaed on last year , my husband has changed and repaired the connctors (white wire on the high voltage transformer ) need to open the microwave to find this. It's been replaced at least 5 times in the past year. It burns, overheats which makes the microwave oven shut down completely.

Every thing works, but no heating and no noise. I am happy you had noticed that there was a difference in the "Noise". Some describe it as a vibration you can feel in the cabinet. The "Noise" is only present when the High Voltage Transformer is engaged. The "Noise" is a low Humm which The High Voltage Transformer emits. Without The High Voltage the unit will not Heat.
BECAUSE you say it heats Sometimes. I suspect a LOOSE CONNECTION between the Low Voltage (115v) and the Primary of The High Voltage Transformer. Could be a Solder Connection, or just a Loose Wire. Loose, not Open. If it were OPEN it would not "Cook" at anytime.

Throws breaker everytime I plug it in Emerson Electric Microwave model MWG9111SL


That would be a bad monitor interlock (middle door switch) or its mount is bad.

See this help file on door switches.

Emerson Microwave stopped working


Have 1 of 2 choices, the main fuse or the control board for the front switches and clock. primary of the small power transformer has opened. Unplug the unit and take case off and measure the fuse with an ohm meter. if u read 1 ohm or less then fuse is good. then measure across the main power plug tips. If read open then the power transformer is bad. Need to replace the board as not sure if transformer is available.

Emerson Microwave Oven and Grill


The micro wave part is not working in your oven. It is mainly due to to the defect in the magnetron and the related components like high voltage side fuse and high voltage diode etc. you can check the fuse and the diode with a multimeter. If they are ok replace the magnetron.
