Emerson MW8119SB microwave wont stop running with door closed

I just got this at my local Wal-Mart 5 months ago and just yesterday after cooking something in it, after closing the door, it sounds like it's still running! I unplugged it and tried again, but when the door is shut, the motor starts running, but the carousel isn't turning. It still works and everything, but we have to keep the door ajar to keep that from happening.

Any suggestions?

    emersn mw8119sb 1000w microwave. Acts like its running with the light on and the carousel turns when you close the door. It will not heat anything however. I've had it about 5-6 months.

It should have a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

I'd call Emerson at 1-800-695-0098 to find your nearest authorized service center to have it fixed free.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

MW8119SB cooks when door is closed regardless of settings


Clear the cook cycle when you remove the food. Some microwaves pick up where they left off, so you don't have to keep pressing buttons.

Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking


Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

Emerson Microwave MW8119SB not turning on


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
