    Yes, the inside light comes on but turntable stay

    still no rotation, no noise at all. Everything is just dead except the inside light is on when try to cook.

    Digital function works perfect when you push any cooking level/instruction.

    Aloha,
    I went to fixya and don't see a way to fix this door problem. How do I check the doors continuity? And, could it be something else? I don' want to do all this and it turns out to be something esle. Would it be cheaper and time saving to buy a new one.

    Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

    Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a misaligned door.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

The controler board may not be outputing to the relay or thyristor (depending on the device used) for the magnetron power supply, or the magnetron may have failed, or the high voltage supply may have failed. This is just to mention a few things that can cause the nature of the fault condition that your microwave oven has.

You will have to take the oven in for an estimate. You may find it cheaper to replace it if it is not under warranty.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it here:
http://emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8115SS.PDF

The manual will also have contact info for Emerson in case you want to check with them on this.

The magnetron may be going bad, and they usually have a warranty of several years on that.
