Question about Magic Microwave Ovens
I have a microwave oven Model # mco 160ub after cooking on high for about 4 min. it shuts off completly, just like i pulled the plug. after about 2 min. it comes back on. can you help me out. its only a year old
I would suspect the internal cooling fan is not running, or the vents are blocked.
This would cause the magnetron to overheat, then the magnetron's thermostat on the magnetron opens, interrupting all power until it cools down.
This is to protect the magnetron from being destroyed.
We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
