Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven
Magic chef microwave mco160uq appears to be running (lights on, platform turns, timer runs) but only heats about every 7-8 times it runs
There are several things that could cause a microwave not to heat. Most common is the magnatron and some models have up to a 5 yr warranty on that part. Check the owners manual for that info.

your micrwave may run fine at 110 but it draws more power than the generator is putting out when the magnetron kicks on which is the part that creates the microwave causing the food to heat up. In other words the amperage is too low for the microwave. Amperage is what matters not voltage.
