Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I can home to find that the microwave was beeping as it does when it finishes cooking. I opened it and it was empty so I fear that my 89 year old mother was running it for some reason and it was empty. I have no idea how long she would have set the time for - is there anything to be concerned about? particularly any health issue?

No health or safety issues there at all. Just lucky it didn't overheat and damage the magnetron tube (Safety wise - the unit has several heat sensitive thermal fuses that will shut the unit down if an overheat situation occurs)
. If the unit still heats and functions normally everything is just fine.

My microwave beeps once every minute to let me know that it has finished cooking. If I open the door, then close it, the beep stops.

When the microwave is finished cooking how can I change the beeping so it only goes off once instead of4 times? That drives me crazy and is so annoying. Thanks, Susan


Hi, you cannot change how the microwave oven beeps after it cooking. You can confirm this by going through the user manual yourself....

yes, at the back of the microwave there are 4 or 6 screws, take them out and then pull the cover follow the cable( the one you connect to the outlet) going to the inside of the microwave inside you will see the fuse change it with the same size, it is a slow burn fuse

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.

GE Profile Spacemaker II Microwave won't beep


hi,

The control board may need to be replaced, check your records to see if the unit is still in warranty, if it is call for repair. If it's not and you’re handy, you can find the part online and replace it yourself, just make sure you unplug it before you work on it. Please contact me if you need help.
