Unfortunately, the old owner's manual doesn't say, but you can do a test to see what its heating power is:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

### What is the wattage

Wattage refer to the power level of the machine. The higher the watt number the more power full is the machine - for example a 900 watt microwave oven will boil water quicker than a 500 watt oven.

### I need to know the wattage of my magic chef oven model 6898VV

There's little to be found on the internet for this model oven now. There should be a name plate / manufacturer's sticker either inside the door - on the jamb; or on the rear near the power cord. If you see a rating given as "120VAC / 1200W" this would indicate INPUT wattage, which would be higher than the amount used for cooking. A typical 1200W rated microwave might have 800 - 1000 Watts of cooking power. If there are 2 ratings for wattage like 120V / 1200W / 850W; the 850 Watts is the amount of cooking power. The cooking power - or wattage - is always lower than the total wattage. If you see a rating somewhere that indicates 900W cooking power, then that would be the cooking power of the oven.

If you're not satisfied or unsure about the information you're finding on the oven - or it is missing - you might want to contact Magic Chef Customer Service Department at (888) 775-0202. They should be able to help you - or pint you in the right direction.

Good luck!

### Microwave oven wattage question

hi, you are correct it is 950 watts as you have read this on the microwave itself, when they sold these they kept the same model number but as they bought newer ones out the wattage increased so they kept the same number so its nothing to worry about it was just yours must have been a newer model then the first ones they made.

the first ones they made started at 700 then they did an 850 then a 950 so you are right its just a case of giving the same model number as the only difference is the wattage everything else is exactly the same, you wouldnt tell the difference if you had them side by side as its only the wattage that changed on this model

### I have a Jenn Air over the stove microwave oven JMV8000ADW. How do I compare 1 through 10 power of my oven (1450 wattage)when looking through microwave cookbooks of lesser wattage? How do I compare their...

Power level 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, 9 = 90%, etc.

So 1000/1450 ~ .69, so use power level 7.

### How can I find out what wattage my Emerson MW8778W microwave is?

I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Emerson-Microwave-Oven-MW8778W-S-D-B-Owners-Manual-7_W0QQitemZ320281595945QQihZ011QQcategoryZ159903QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.

i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.

The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

### Wattage

The output power for model MA-780 was 700 watts, so I'd bet yours is either 600 or 700 watts.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
