If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

Is there a power fuse on a MCD1611?


Yess there is a ceramic 20 amp 250 volt fuse inside the cabinet. Safety first!!! Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet.

If you remove the four T20 Torx screws that hold the case on(back of cabinet around the edges) and carefully slide the case back and up you can access the fuse. It will be on the circuit board near where the power cord enters. If you have a ohmeter you can check the fuse. The ceramic fuses are not clear so you cant tell a blown fuse by looking.

I purchased a Magic Chef under cabinet microwave from Home Depot on clearance. Got it home and installed when testing all the functions all worked well but the night light function. if you press the light...


Since it's a clearance item, it may not have a warranty.

But you should check with Home Depot on that if you haven't already.

Otherwise, you'd have to have it repaired yourself.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

We have a Magic Chef microwave oven inour travel trailer and it is not working. The plug is OK but the microwave will do nothing.


Generic comments:

Do you have power to the outlet? Do you have a light or does the control panel light up?

If you have power in the wall - CHECK IT and nothing at the machine, remove the cover - check the fuse on the floor of the cabinet near where the cord enters. DO NOT TOUCH THE SILVER CAN - LETHAL.

If you have a good fuse, you may want to check the door safety interlocks. If it gets this far and you need more help, please let me know. Id be glad to give it a try.

I was making popcorn and the microwave just died


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

Magic Chef mco153ubf


I had the same problem. My Magic Chef, MCO153UBF Microwave had similar problems. The Magnatron, Cooling fan, Turn table and under hood lights were not working at all after hearing a pop sound under the control panel. Thought it was the fuse but the fuse was fine after testing and replacing. I checked the circuit breaker wired to my house and saw it had a break to my kitchen outlets so i flipped the switch to get back the kitchen outlets. Then I checked the microwaves Control Panel ( Printed Circuit Board) underneath and saw to traces were burnt. I soldered the two trace lines and the fixed the problem.

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.
