Question about KitchenAid KHMC107BT Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Light turns on but that's it

Hi All, I have just been given a Emerson MW8115SS microwave from my mother. She had it for about a year (the warranty JUST wore off) when it stopped working. The only thing that turns on is the inside light. The buttons and clock do not work at all. As far as I know, one day it worked, the next it didn't . I know the microwave is still getting power, so what is the problem? Is there some simple explaination for this, or would it be cheaper to go and get a new microwave?

If there is no display, chances are it had a power surge which opened up the circuit board protector and damaged the varistor. If that's the case, we repair those control units nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

The fan and light com on when the door is open and the carousel turns. When you close the door everything stops.

Check the door interlock switches, you may have a faulty switch or a blown fuse inside the microwave.

My Emerson MW8115SS microwave works but doesn't heat anything up, what could be wrong? And is it a easy fix?

Hi there.
Obviously it is "not working"
Could be an internal fuse or the activator is just finished.

Emerson mw8115ss microwave

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.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Ummmm I feel stupid

The manual is on the Emerson site at:
http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8115SS.PDF

But it doesn't seem to mention a way for you to change the lamp.

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
