    I entered the time, pressed the power button, and entered 5 for 50%. When I pressed start, nothing would happen. There is no Time Cook button. The full model number is MW8675W. Also I went to the web site you suggested and it came back as "service unavailable".

Is your full model number MW8675? If not, please post your full model and let me try again.

Normally you press Time (or Time Cook) then the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 (which stands for 10% to 90% power level), then Start.

On some models you just press the digits of the time, then Power, then a number from 1 to 9 then Start.

Many Emerson microwave manuals are available for free download here:

If your is not there, try one with a number close to yours.

How do you set the power level

If you have a power level button---press it and then enter 1-0 for 10. Most microwaves automatically come on at power level 10 or Hi power unless you pick a different option like the defrost button which is usually power level 3.

How do I set up the power level on a Hamilton Beach microwave model number is p100n30als3b

I believe all you need to do is first press the 'Power Level' button, then select a number on the keypad between 1 and 100 (where 100 is full power, 50 is half power, etc), then Press 'Time Cook' and enter the number of minutes and seconds as usual. I'd suggest testing on a cup of water so you don't risk overheating anything. And never run a microwave completely empty.

Good luck.

Frigidaire Pro micro power level options do not work. Can this be repaired?

Good Morning Charles Caulkins, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave is not allowing you to change your power level. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by disconnecting power from your microwave for ten minutes. If that does not help to resolve your issue I would suggest having a professional come out to provide a proper diagnosis. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Unable to adjust power level, the power level button on the control panel does not respond.

Try pressing and adjusting the power level before setting the cook time, or maybe before pressing start. Worked on my Panasonic

Everything works fine, except my food is still cold

Check the "power" level setting.

Most microwaves allow adjusting the power level from 1 to 10 (or 10 to 100 on some models). 10 (or 100) is the highest/quickest setting.

I can check mine by entering a time...then before pushing "start"....push the "power" button....and change the level if I want.

How do you set the power level? The model number is: JVM1730DM1WW The serial number is: MM901698B

Assuming your touch pad is working properly, press Time Cook (for cooking) or Time Defrost (for defrosting) and then type in the length of time that you want the microwave to operate. Then press Power Level and type in a number from 1-10. Finally press Start. Depending on the GE microwave, the Power Level button may be above 2 or to the left of 0. (I've seen both keypad designs depending on when and where the microwave was manufactured.) If you press Power Level before setting the cooking time, the unit will reset when you press Time Cook or Time Defrost.

GE has the manuals for some of their microwaves on their site. See and enter the model number in the search engine.

I hope this helps.

How do I change the power setting

you have to enter your cooking time and THEN hit the "power level" button. Most likely, the display will read "the current power level is set to 10" or something like that. just go ahead and put in the number for the percent you want.
For example, hit 5 for 50% power. Then, hit "start."

I do not have the manual. How do I change the poiwer level on a Frigidaire Microwave model FMT116E1W

After setting the time amount before you hit the start button, push the power button with each push it should indicate a different power level if not you've got to use the keypad, for example, 50 is 50% power etc.

Won't heat up

Hi larry,

Would it be posible your not setting the heat, is your microwave a popcorn setting one touch bottom.
It is also posible that the magnetron is not working, could be several factors, bad cap, power supply if it has one and bad magnetron. Also thermistor default may also not letting the magnetron to firer up.
You or going to have to figure how it works. also bad door switch may cause this.
To see were you or going if you know were the magnetron is then you most know that is is supplyed by a transformor, step up, at the primery winding , with a voltmeter set on ac voltage see if the voltage is present when starting the microwave, if the voltage is there 115vac you will notice will pulse on and off depending on your power level setting and there is still no heat then it's your secondary of the transformer that is not working.
This could be bad cap, power board if there is one, bad magnetron. Do not test the secondary voltage unless you understand it's very high.
If there is no voltage present, don't go farther, check your swithes, thermistors.
