    Microwave works except for no spin action.  just stopped.  I was planning on tearing it apart to see if its just a belt, etc.?  Do i need to worry about safety issues if I'm just to taking off the shell to look at it's workings??

It can mostly be one or a combination of several faults. The power supply for the light and motor may be at fault, or the motor or light may have failed.

You can bring the oven in for a service estimate. If you are not experienced in this type of repair, I don't recomend you do it. There are safety issues involved with these appliances.

I had a power surge in my house and my EMERSON 900W MICROWAVE OVEN MW8999RD control pad is not working. The lightbulb works and the tray spins slowly when I open the microwave door. However, nothing


I hope it's still under warranty. Think about getting a replacement, and about next time: Get a surge protection device between the oven and the wall plug! I have suffered from power surges in my house as well, and a surge protector is the only cure.

Platter spin, Vent Works, when using the microwave


check the high voltage diode inside the unit,its connected to one leg of the high voltage capacitor and the other side to the metal shell of the unit,if this opens you don't get the high D.C. voltage necessary to operate the magnetron,be careful,the capacitor can store up to 2100 v.a.c.so discharge it first to be safe

Light and turntable work, but it won't heat


There is a fuse in this microwave.The fuse is difficult to get to.
But i do not think it is this fuse.You have lights and the carousel
spins.This sounds like the thermostat or the magnetron tube that
creates the heat.

Microwave works perfectly but does not heat


Sadly your microwave has done it's last cooking. The mechanism you need to make it cook again would cost you more than a replacement microwave.

Microwave not heating


OK, you have two components that are faulty. the magnetron and the turntable motor as well. replacing these two components will fix both issues.
