The controler board may not be outputing to the relay or thyristor (depending on the device used) for the magnetron power supply, or the magnetron may have failed, or the high voltage supply may have failed. This is just to mention a few things that can cause the nature of the fault condition that your microwave oven has.

You will have to take the oven in for an estimate. You may find it cheaper to replace it if it is not under warranty.

It's probably a failed magnetron or loose connection at the "FA" terminal of the magnetron.

Hi, I have an Oster OMW1199 microwave that will not heat food. The light turns on and the timer works, but no heat.


I bought-the oster microwave and like others it did not last long before it stop heating. I took (careful precaution!!) and (unplugged the the unit!!) to view the fuse which of course is the main problem why this microwave does not heat up. Everything else works well but the heating. But since I changed the fuse to something very close to the same amp of the actual fuse it did work fine next to nothing.

I did not find any problem other than the noheating. This should only be attempted by someone who is in fact has close knowledge of electricity. The process is safe (WITH THE CORRECT PRECAUTION!!).Ever since I replaced the fuse and found out that that was all it needed I have been using it for 8 mths. Note--I did take measures into my own hands which is not recommended by anyone. But it is the old-fashion way...

My Emerson MW8115SS microwave works but doesn't heat anything up, what could be wrong? And is it a easy fix?


Hi there.
Obviously it is "not working"
Could be an internal fuse or the activator is just finished.

Model mw8115ss suffix a Emerson Microwave not working


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a misaligned door.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

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

If you don't have your manual, you can download it here:
http://emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8115SS.PDF

The manual will also have contact info for Emerson in case you want to check with them on this.

The magnetron may be going bad, and they usually have a warranty of several years on that.
