Ours magic chef 900W MCD990ARB completely stopped. We have it in our camper and everything on that end is fine. Checked the micro in a different outlet, still no go. Any suggestions?


Well if you are lucky it is an internal fuse. Open it up and look somewhere near where the cord comes into the unit. If it is not the fuse then I suggest you replace the whole thing.
I recently was attempting to repair one. The part cost $93, a new microwave costs that or less.

Magic Chef microwave oven (8 years old) heats only one/half of its usual power. everything else is O.K.


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Microwave turned on by itself


Have you tried unplugging it than reapplying power ? Sometimes a power up reset will clear the logic on the control card and yes.. if it continues to run ...you have a potential fire hazard...

Micro ios totally black . Had to reset the breaker ; is that a clue/


It has a fuse inside. Check the door switches while you're in there. The one in series with the fuse can weld in the "on" condition and blow the fuse and/or the circuit breaker.

Magic Chef Over the Range, MicroOven, model MCO153UBF


I tried the usual things, then checked the outlet in the cupboard where the unit is plugged in.....It was okay, but then I noticed a separate electrical cable going into the wall at the outlet. I went to the breaker box downstairs, found a breaker marked "Microwave Oven", flicked it off and on and away the microwave oven went....It is now okay. I guess the thermostat had turned everything off when it became too hot....
anyway all okay now....thx Janet
