It can be fixed, but it could run into some money if the magnetron is bad. The magnetron is what creates the "microwaves", and they can go bad, but can also last years, with slight degradation in power. The problem could also be the controls to the magnetron, or the control board. The unit will have to be troubleshot to know exactly what's needed. Make sure you get an estimate before having it repaired, so you know what you're up against. With the low-end microwaves, I generally recommend replacement, since the cost of service is more than a new machine, oftentimes. The cost to have it repaired will determine whether to have it serviced, or opt for a new one. Good luck, hope this helps!

Apart of this fact, honestly I don't know have any mocrowave elctronics knowledge to hepl you diagnosing the failure.
If your oven stopped working and you don't have electronic knolwedge to repair it, bad new is that you should take it to a reapair service.

The micro wave part is not working in your oven. It is mainly due to to the defect in the magnetron and the related components like high voltage side fuse and high voltage diode etc. you can check the fuse and the diode with a multimeter. If they are ok replace the magnetron.

The Display on my microwave says "LOCKED"


The control lock shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven. To unlock/lock control, the microwave must be in standby mode, touch and hold stop/clear for 3 seconds until one long tone sounds and the display clears to show an outline if the display area. Repeat to unlock control, and return display to the time of day, if any pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the microwave oven. hope this helps.

The micro wave suddenly stop working, it was not in use.


I would suspect the internal fuse or the thermal cutout or thermostat on the magnetron.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components. In some models, it may only be a wiring diagram.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can order Magic Chef / E-wave / Daewoo parts here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

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