    No light, would I need any other parts?

    Do you know the part number for the compressor, so I can try to find one?

    Thanks for your time and help!

Does the inside light work? If so then the worst that could be wrong would be a compressor burned out for the power surge and this is the most expensive portion of the refrigerator. If it was the compressor I would guess the price would be around $400-700 to repair including parts.

    if the light isn't working then I would check you breakers and the outlet that the refrigerator is plugged into before condeming the compressor. Find the breaker or the fuse for the refrigerator and check that first as it sounds to me like something simply electrical if the refrigerator isn't getting any power at all. If it was the compressor the light would still work.

Magic Chef over-the-range microwave oven doesn't cook. Clock, inside lights and turntable are fine


If it lights up, the fuse is fine. On all of the recent Magic Chef's I've repaired, the magnetron has been the cause of the problem you described. Another possible common culprit is the high voltage rectifier.

No! there is no reset, the power surge has more than likely damaged the keypad controller, and on the back is a circuit board that has the microprocessor with additional components that controls the vital areas of the microwave oven. If that is gone, it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

I have the same problem with my new magic cheff over the stove microwave oven. I call magic chef and they gave me the 800 number for the service center (1-800-775-0202). When I described the problem they told me to just put a plate under the popper and this wouldn't happen anymore. I haven't tried it yet but here's hoping.

I'd say your magnetron is failing.

The normal parts and labor warranty is probably one year, with a few years extra for the magnetron.

Your owner's manual will have that info. You can download owner's manuals for many Magic Chef models here.

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
