Question about Microwave Ovens

Magic Chef Microwave

Have a model MC02212ARB Magic Chef above gas range with vent fan and light. It was bought in our 2004 camper. Quit working properly after about 6 months. Camper sales wouldn't replace and neither would the Magic Chef folks. Well, all of a sudden it started working and worked fine for about 1 1/2 year. Now when it is on it runs about 30 seconds normally then you hear the motor slow way down and then start smelling like wires burning. I tried it again yesterday, and now it only hums a low motor and something is definitely burning. Help

Magic chef microwave buttons will not work but microwave is on


its a connection problem probally from a bump while driving the camper - you can dismantle the microwave yourself from the back and reconnect the jared wiring, or just replace it with an industrial one that can handle the camper abuse.

Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn


You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.

Vent fan high comes on automatically with cooking


Right, that would be MCO10UW and the owner's manual is here.

The owner's manual does say this, of course,

"To prevent overheating from taking place, the exhaust
fan is designed to automatically turn on at a low speed if
excessive temperatures occur. Should this happen, the
fan cannot be manually turned off, but it will
automatically turn off when the internal parts have
cooled. The fan may stay on for up to an hour after the
range and microwave oven controls have been turned
off."

That;'s standard on microwaves.

But these models do have a separate internal cooling fan (which should run any time you microwave) plus the hood vent exhaust fan, which should only run when you select it, or if there is an excessive stovetop or under-hood temperature.

So if it comes on whenever you microwave, that is incorrect.

When that happens, it's usually a defective vent thermal switch (a.k.a. hood TCO).

But since it's brand new, I would certainly contact Magic Chef about this. If it's in need of repair, they will fix it free, assuming the oven wasn't physically damaged.

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.
