Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

It just died

The microwave is a little over five years old. It just simply died. I once fixed my moms by resetting it but I honestly have no idea where to begin with this one. I have pulled up the owners manual and unless you want to know how to plug it in or cook something in it, the manual is usless. Please give me some kind of help. My grandmother has an eleven year old microwave... I know this isn't all I'm getting out of this one... Or is it?

Check the AC line fuse. This will require you to remove cover.

Everything runs on my microwave but it will not get hot. what can i do to fix this problem?


The magnetron will more than likely need replacement, one of the most expensive parts in the microwave oven. If the item is more than five years old consider a new microwave oven

The switch button is not working..


Hi, kindly unplug the unit for five minutes. this will drain all power, and reset the main board. Once the five minutes have passed, simply plug the unit back into the power outlet. If the problem continues, the touch pad should be replaced asap.

The microwave stops after a few seconds. It starts, but stops before the set time is completed. The oven is five years old.


Does the oven's key pad seem to reset like a breaker flipped inside? And after, you have to reset the clock? If so, check the temperature cutoff switches inside. Jumper across them and see if your microwave starts working correctly. I had this problem and the Bottom TCO was defective.

Turns on but not heating food sounds a bit louder


Hi, this is common in most microwaves. this abnormal noise is coming from a faulty Magnetron. this device is responsible for the heating process and, it is damaged and not heating at all at this point.Simply replace the Magnetron and, this unit will start to heat once more.

Was using it last night to heat something up. When almost done, microwave made a zizt type of sound and went off. I turned it back on and it continued cooking, but I started smelling burned plastic or


More common then you think, i have gone through a couple microwaves in the last ten years, they both failed very similar to what you describe. One popped the breaker one day, reset the breaker and it worked again but had an odd smell to it. I took it apart and couldn't find anything burnt or melted so i tossed it and got a new one, i didn't want a microwave burning the house down! I would suggest unless your really tied to that microwave that you just replace it for safety sake. Four years or forty years old don't matter anymore, i had one microwave, LG brand, that died two months after the warranty expired and it would cost more to repair it then replace the thing!

GE microwv-doesn't heat, strong electrical smell, all else ok


The most common problem would be your magnetron. Check your purchase date, magnetron's usually have a five year warranty. Not a part I recomend trying to fix yourself (high voltage ).
