Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment

I have a boxed stouffers lasagna how long do I cook it for in my nu wave oven

Most food cooking directions are based upon a 1100 watt microwave oven output..
Since you didnt specify, I am guessing you have a 700 watt oven
You can roughly adapt cooking directions by multiplying times 1.6.
So if directions say 6 1/2 minutes at 1100w, cook for 10 minutes 24 seconds, or 10.4.minutes [roughly]
Here is a list of other oven powers
600. 1.8 times
700 1.6 times
800 1.4 times
900 1.2 times
1000 1.1 times

Of course, this is only a rough scale, microwave cooking times always vary from machine to machine. Always pay close attention when cooking.

How do I cook an egg in a microwave?

you can just put the egg and heat it and it will be like boiled eggs

Can you cook direct in the over glass dish.

Your question is not particularly clear. Are you referring to the revolving glass base in your microwave oven?

If so, the answer is yes. But why would you wish to, and what do you wish to cook on it?

If, for example, you want to cook a little bacon, then at least wrap the bacon in paper towel to absorb the grease. Personally, I use either specially-made microwave oven cookware or Pyrex glass dishes and jugs, say to cook custard or scrambled eggs.

Power it stays at 100% want 50%

Place the items inside the unit and close the door. Set the cook time, then press the "Power Level" button. When the display asks for input, press "5" for 50% power. Then press START.

My swan microwave just stopped working when i cooked some eggs with it. it burst the egg out n is not worlking any more. can it be is spoilt or is just preparing itself for sometime since it still feels...

Hi, I believe you have done your microwave in. That was not a good thing to do. In all hand books it say, do not put a raw egg in it's shell in the microwave or it will explode. You will have to replace the wave gun (magnetron). Depending how much damage you did there maybe more to replace.

Egg cookers

I found the instructions
Sprinkle a few grains of salt on bottom of egg cooker. (Salt attracts microwaves and is necessary to help cook bottom of egg)

Break egg into egg cooker.
One egg in micro at a time.

Will fork piece yolk and white to bottom of cooker, three times. _ This is very important.

Line up notches on egg cooker lid and cup then twist until locked

Micro on High for 30 seconds

Let stand 10 seconds
If bottom of egg is not cooked turn egg over with a spoon and microwave on high for another 10 to 20 second or until cooked.

Microwave not turning on after egg explosion

repair door target wont accept return or repair under warranty due to damage by owner

Microwave works for 30 seconds and then turns off

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
