If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

MICROAVE JUST SHUT DOWN, REPLACED FUSE, MICROWAVE WORKED FOR ABOUIT A MINUTE THEN SHUT DOWN AGAIN, ITS KEEPS BLOWING THE FUSE. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT IS REPAIRABLE OR JUST NEEDS TO BE REPLACED?


It is one of three things, the magnetron "heats food" or the high voltage capacitor, and diode. If the magnetron is gone, cheaper to replace the microwave, as far as the other parts go, it will approach the price of a new one.

The microwave shuts off after 10 minutes and takes 30 minutes to come back on. Help!!!


It indicates the magnetron is getting to hot "that heats the food" when that happens the thermal fuse opens to protect the magnetron from over heating and shuts it down and waits until it is cooler before it resets. The other problem could be the fan not working or not properly that blows on the magnetron, it helps keeps the temperature regulated so it can run hard. If it turns out the fan is fine, then the magnetron is slowly breaking down until it becomes unusable, which means it will need to be replaced "pricey" or buy new "probably cheaper"

Intermittent reminder beeper won't shut off


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

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

MICROWAVE WILL ONLY HEAT ON CERTAIN SETTINGS. how do i set the heating instructions?


I have a Magic Chef model MC0160UQ. Within 2-3 minutes of heating food it shuts off completely for about 5min. Also, when I select the low fan it does not work, however the high fan works. Please assist with these issues if possible. Am I able to fix or adjust the magnetron myself since it may be overheating? or what should i do?????

Most of the time the magnetron is defective if the food is not heating up.
In some cases there is a defective low power transformer or other componenents associated with the magnetron.
I would suggest to check the owners manual under the warranty section. Sometimes the magnetron has 5 years warranty.
Good Luck.

My microwave heats but shuts off due to the fan not coming on


A little late for a reply; you probably have replaced it by now.

I suspect it shuts down because the fan is no longer turning on and there is probably a thermal shutoff switch near or on the magnetron to prevent the chance of fire.
