The control board has a problem, most likely. A door switch that will not close will not allow the unit to come on, but usually you will get a response to buttons on the keypad, so your main control board is the likely suspect. When you get in there, try to wiggle any connecting wires, to make sure they're tight...you might disconnect them and try to spray wire connectors with electrical spray, in case they're some oxidation. Sometimes you can get lucky this way. Otherwise, the control board will have to be replaced.
Get an estimate first, if you decide to have it serviced. The control board on this unit has a record of going bad, and even turning the unit on in the middle of the night, so it's the likely suspect. Good luck, and hope this helps!

Have a magic chef mco160uw microwave. Had a recent


No! there is no reset, the power surge has more than likely damaged the keypad controller, and on the back is a circuit board that has the microprocessor with additional components that controls the vital areas of the microwave oven. If that is gone, it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

I'm getting a flash inside the oven and the plastic on the inside roof has a burn mark. I removed the plastic cover over the micro wave generator and it did not spark. is the oven dying? It is a 1983 0ver...


It looks like the metal part inside the oven is exposed to the high frequency rf waves. this may sound strange but try coating the metal part with fresh paint. remember no metal inside the oven will stand the waves created inside the oven the spark u see is the waves hitting the exposed metal part inside the oven

Micro looses all power during cooking, power returns after a few


This is a defect. RERURN it while it is still under warranty. Tell the counter person you need to speak to his/her supervisor if they give you that song and dance again. Threaten to file a complaint with the better business bureau and with your state's attorney general. Be firm but polite and insist that they honor the warranty.
