SOURCE: my microwave magic chef mco160uw

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you have a failed keypad.

This can be dangerous, and you should keep it attended to when in use (as with any microwave) and unplugged when not in use.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

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.

My Magic Chef microwave oven blows fuse when i open door


If you're blowing fuses from opening the door that is the sign of a electrical short . You'll need to call a electrician to check it out. Changing the fuse in this unit can kill you. There's a capacitor that holds stored electrical energy that is dangerous. My good friend died from trying to change the fuse in his. Get a professional to check it.

Magic chef mco160uw Tray not turning and light off


The problem will be a bad relay, a component that drives the relay, or a broken trace on the circuit board.

This blown trace happens a lot when the cooktop lights blow.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

Microwave turned on by itself


Have you tried unplugging it than reapplying power ? Sometimes a power up reset will clear the logic on the control card and yes.. if it continues to run ...you have a potential fire hazard...
