Question about Magic Chef MCB780W Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Defective microwave I went to use my microwave and it just isn't working. The light doesn't work, and the turn table does not turn. The timer still works and the microwave makes a loud noise. The machine is less than a year old.

    We had the same problem. We cleaned it out, the wheels on the spinning glass try were messed up! Same symptoms you described.

    same problem with my Magic Chef. Turn table doesn't turn and light won't go on. It works but it shuts off probably because its overheating.

I would definitely contact the manufacturer since most of them have a one year parts & labor warranty and they'll fix it free.

If you have your owner's manual, you can find their number. If not, please reply back with your brand and model number (or brand at least) so we can help you.

Sounds like a bad door switch or relay, and also possibly a bad magnetron or high voltage diode.

It is one of two things, a defective door switch, "most likely" or the keypad control board is faulty.

My Kenmore Built-in microwave doesn't heat and the turn table doesn't turn. Model 911-47812200


It is good that the microwave does not work all together. It might be an interlock button or even a relay connection burn on the main mother circuit board.

Need a qualified technician. The service manual will be like $20-50.

When I press the start the button the turn table inside microwave is not turning and there is not heat on the food. But the light is on and the clock is working. What do you think is the problem? and what...


The turn table motor of your microwave is defective already and also the magnetron - the source of generated heat of the microwave is also defective. But before assuming that magnetron is dead, check the high voltage fuse it may be blown and replace the fuse (if it is blown) it with similar rating. I hope I help you with your microwave problem.

sounds like either a powerboard or control board is sending erratic voltage or no voltage to the table motor and possibly the light.

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
