Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

My Emerson MW8115

My microwave was only 3 months old when it was put in storage. Now that we are using it again, it turns on every time the door is closed, but it doesn't heat. None of the buttons work either!!

Hopefully it was not an unheated storage area! Moisture and contamination can get into the controls from condensation due to big changes in air temperatures in areas like unheated storage units or garages. That being said, the most common causes of a failure to heat are in order: - bad door switches or door switch mounts - loose connection at the magnetron - problem with the control unit - bad magnetron or other high voltage part At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosiss and replacement, and disassembly information.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....

Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

Where is the light bulb in a emerson mw8115

It is inside the outer shell of the microwave, remove the outer shell to access the bulb, the srews that hold it on are on the back of the oven. You will need to disconnect power of course and do the work in an area that alloes you access to rear of the oven.

Please rate my help for Fixya, it helps to improve my standing on the site. Thanks

Microwave not turning on

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If you still have trouble, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

For more help from Emerson visit here or get help using your appliance at 1-800-898-9020. Get help locating a servicer or parts at 1-800-695-0098.

Emerson MW8119SB microwave wont stop running with door closed

It should have a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

I'd call Emerson at 1-800-695-0098 to find your nearest authorized service center to have it fixed free.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS

I bought my emerson microwave 3 years ago model# mw8115ss from walmart and have had all the problems that everyone has talked about and I thought about throwing it away until I thought about one small detail, the FUSE. China uses junky glass fuses that burst instantly with a slight power outage, door slamming to hard, moving it around, and of course constant use like myself always heating up water for bottles. I took the back of the microwave off and walla!!! a blown fuse, but wait!!! dont buy another glass fuse!!! go to your local home depot and get the ceramic fuse for microwave ovens!!! they are $2.83 at my local home depot. I replaced the junky glass fuse with the ceramic one and it has worked perfectly for six months now.

DONT let someone tell you that you cant replace a glass fuse with a ceramic one because they are full of boloney. My microwave did all kinds of things, it wouldnt turn sometimes, it would come on by itself, it would beep for no reason, turn but not heat up, you name it I had the problem. When a fuse starts to go out it can make your appliances do some strange things, check the fuse and replace it with a CERAMIC one and I promise it should eliminate your problem.
