Re: No fan noise, just a click when push button
Did the display count down?
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
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.

We see (and repair) this
a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide
by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a
week or so.
our Web site, you can get details of our
service, plus we have a video
available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
This light failure often
occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament
shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first
unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a
failure on the controller.
The lights can can be
inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly
affect the fan operation or inside light, too.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your
full model number from the tag on the unit) for more
information & help.
happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful

Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.
If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.
The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.
I tried all the things on your website. Holding the clear button , unplugging,...
So I went back to the last operation that I was doing when the problem started.
I was using "reheat" so I put a glass of water in the micro turned on reheat 1 serving.
It started and then I hit clear after a few minutes and the problem went away.
I'd say the bearings are getting dry. I'd hit it with a a drop of 3-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil.
If you don't have the owner's manual, you can download one here:
It's also possible that the keeper which holds the fan blade assembly may be broken or loose. That could cause the fan to slip and rub.
Either way it will have to be disassembled to a degree, probably starting with removal of the grille.
