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!

Emerson microwave oven 1100 watts model mwg911s52 this is the second one that I have bought within thelast 18 months, that shoots out sparks and then quits. Now it will hum if I leave the door shut on


The magnetron is on the verge of failure, or if a plate with metal compound or tin foil will cause arcing if food is warmed up. But I think it would be a good idea to have it checked especialy if warranty applies.

I have an Emerson MW89998B microwave. When trying to use it will spark and smoke. Any suggestions on what might be causing this. Have cleaning it and clean it weekly.


It is possible that your magnetron is heating up some soft spots inside the oven or there is a damage to the feed wires to the maggnetron or to the main capacitors. But before we start, I want you to be very careful. Remove the power and use a good flash light to look inside for the mountings near the magnetron-- a square/round fitting top right side of the oven when viewing from the front. If there is any possibility that your have not used food covers, some food could have splurted on to this and made it soft due to heating on the food. If so, you will have make a clean dry wipe, let it dry for some time before you test. If fault stays visualise the spot of smoke and invetigate . If you are powering the set with the cover removed please be very careful. replace the capacitor, wires or any insects/ cockroaches that have got entanged. hope you find this advise helpful Good day

Need to replace turntable model no. MW8995W


I have the same problem. Emerson gave me the name of a parts company (Fox International 1-800-321-6993) and they can supply a replacement when it comes off of backorder (anywhere from two to twelve weeks).

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.
