Help, my mircowave

I have a stainless steel red microwave by emerson. I have had it for almost a year and it has went bad. When you start it, it acts as if someone put some aluminum inside of it.

    My Emerson microwave oven was operating one second and the next it just blanked out! Nothing. No clock lights, nothing. I checked for burning ordor, or wiring to the plug and wall socket.

Same thing happened to mine. You need special "security torx" bit to take 2 of the screws that hold the cover on. 20 amp automotive fuse did the trick.

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smmoth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places liek Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

If it's not a problem caused by outside forces, it may be covered under warranty.

I have the black/stainless steel m/v MV8999sb. Just today, when I used the any express cooking button, instead of cooking, it is acting like a kitchen timer. It is also flashing to icons on the top; one...


The two icons are normally present for any timed cooking in this microwave. If you are not getting the food to heat (since express cook is at 100% power), the magnetron, thepart that produces the microwaves, may be damaged. If your unit is out of warranty, it may be easier to replace it.

The part itself is fairly cheap: http://www.partstore.com/SearchResults.aspx?q=Magnetrons&cft=Microwaves+_gt_+Magentrons&cfilt=374&sort=salesrank&ctf=Parts&ctfn=Parts&ps=100&bf=731&bfn=Emerson . However, you need to avoid damaging the seals to avoid having the radiation leak. (It makes the microwave inefficient and can be dangerous to people and pets nearby.) Additional parts for microwaves are also available at partstore.com: http://www.partstore.com/Content/CategoryPages/Kitchen-Microwaves.aspx .

The manual for the MV8999sb is available here: http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/emerson/mw8999sb.html . Click the Get this Manual button. See page 13 of the PDF for the pictures appropriate to the Quick Cook option.

I hope this helps.

Need user manual


Here is a link to an Emerson MW8108bsc (stainless steel version) manual. I would think the operation would be the same. It is from Emerson's website.

Hood range microwave not heating up


We had one that did the same thing. my brother got so mad at it he put a wrench in it and turned it on. It didn't do anything to it. No power surge nothing. It acted as if I put a plate of food. Lighted up turned and even beeped when done. The wrench wasn't even hot. Now I do recommend this myself. But we went and got antoher one.
There is something in there that magnifys the power inside the mircowave and it sounds like its out.

How can i return a microwave


Did you charge it or write a check? You can get a date of purchase that way. I would check the back of the microwave for the serial/model number and a telephone number or website to contact about the defective product. You can also try the manager of the store where you bought it and see what they can do for you. Hope this helps!
