Microwave will not start when time is entered and start is pushed

I enter the time on my microwave and push start and I get beeps and microwave does not start. The light also stays on inside the microwave. The exhaust fan works fine as does the kitchen timer. Is there a switch somewhere that is not working properly such as for the door?

You got it! One of the door switches is not activating. Take a look at the door itself first. There should be two tabs that stick out. These tabs will engage in the holes near the control panel. If the door does not have a broken tab then the problem is behind the control panel on one of the switches. There are 3 switches back there.

Unplug the power cord, it is usually in the cabinet above the microwave oven. Then take the grille off the top, the screws for the grille are on the top of the unit facing down. With the grill off you will see the one screw on top of the control panel, remove that screw and lift up and out on the control panel this will give you access to view the switches and test them with an ohmmeter.

How do I change the time on a Kenwood microwave


Please follow the below mentioned steps to resolve the i
1.
Press the "Clock" or "Time of Day" key on your Kenmore microwave's control panel.
2.
Push the number keys to input the time. For example, "945" or "0945" equals "9:45" on the display. If you have a microwave with a 24-hour rather than 12-hour clock, also set the time of day: touch "Enter/Start" or "Start" on the panel and then push "1" for "AM" or "2" for "PM."
3.
Touch "Clock" or "Time of Day" again, "Enter/Start" or just "Start" to save the setting.

My mother just bought an Emerson MW8119 Microwave and can't figure out how to only set say 15 seconds cook time. Is it possible?


Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.

If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.

The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.

Hope this helps!

Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking


Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

No power


To enter the time you must push the clock button once before you enter the time and again after you enter the numbers. Try that and you should be all set.

Please mark this as a fixya! thanks.
