Question about Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave Oven
When we do popcorn in our Magic chef the oven shuts down
automaticlly for about 10-15 mins then it resets and comes back on,this only happens with popcorn.
You can try putting a small cup of water in the microwave along with the popcorn.

You are running the risk of damaging the Magnatron by doing this.
Check the packets you are using, you will have to reduce your power output.
This is because microwaves act by being absorbed by water. There is very little in popcorn and in fat. Once this has been evaporated, the microwave energy builds up (as it is still being produced - but not absorbed), and ends up cooking the magnatron itself.
I have seen countless posts on here after cooking popcorn!
More fun on the hob anyway - and cheaper to buy in bulk!

I've been having the same problem with our magic chef over-the-stove microwave. Every time I cook popcorn it shuts down like you said for 10-15 minutes then beeps and comes back on. I thought it was the popcorn button so I tried again just with normal cook time and same problem. Richie's answer seems to make sense but I'm not sure how to check the packets and reduce the power output. Will this slow down the rest of my microwaving?
