Question about Emerson Black Microwave Oven

Emerson microwave has red lights flashing

One light looks like a windshield wiper and the other is a plate of food which I think indicates power. It won't heat up at all since the windshield wiper looking red light has been on. Lost the manual - please help!

Sounds like you don't have proper microwave-compatible plates or mugs. Must have lead in them, or in the paint (!?!) Try a plastic plate or even a paper plate. I can't think of anything that would make the microwave oven do that, UNLESS it's a microwave/convection oven, in which case, the convection heater must be coming on whenever you are trying to just use the microwave function.

Center will not rotate


The glass plate is driven by a motor underneath. Power may not be getting to the motor or the motor may have failed

Food not getting heated


There are three common issues, magnetron "heats food" cracked high voltage diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor. In order to find out you will need a professional to assess, it will be probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

Oh dear, I hope the magnetron still works. That plate you describe is called the Waveguide Cover. This cover must be kept clean otherwise the food particles will carbonize and cause exactly what you have described.
Contact the manufacturers web site for a supplier in your area or look on ebay, espares.co.uk depending on your location.
When it has been changed, I hope the magnetron/aerial is OK.

No heating


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Do not understand the use of the sensor


Dear ggold

I think you refer to the steam sensor. I,ll explain how it works with one of its uses. Say you want to reheat a plate of food. You can do this two ways. You can guess how much time it will take to warm the food, and maybe not heat it enough or overcook it which can ruin some foods. Or you can just press the "reheat" button. The oven will come on at full power and continue to operate until steam begins to rise from the plate. The oven then switches to a "countdown" mode until it determines the food is hot. Saves time and guesswork. Most modern ovens work like this. Since you dont give the make and model of your oven, this is the best I can do.

Flashing red lights


It sounds like you are talking about the indicators as shown and explained on page 7 of your owner's manual.

The one that looks like windshield wipers (#10) is the microwave indicator. The ones that look like bowls of soup are the High Cook and Low Cook indicators (#24 & 25).

If you don't still have your owner's manual, you can download it here free. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

Once you've looked that over, feel free to write back with specific symptoms if you're still having trouble.

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