    Have a Emerson mw8117w Microwave. Just stopped. Heated up soup, not hot enough, and the over never came back on. Changed sockets, etc. Still it is dead. This is a relatively new microwave only 6 months old.

    I had the same problem. Returned it, got the new one home, used it same thing happened. I think it has something to do with the power it is drawing but I'm not sure. Had a funny smell too.

    Same type of thing here. Worked for a few months, then just suddenly expired and would never power up again.

Why won't Microwave door stay shut?


We are having the same problem. Seems like latch spring is broken. We can not find any parts for this. Dometic is 3 yrs. old so no warranty. No service for it either. Keystone really took us on this

Roper Microwave fan won't shut off


THE FAN AND MICROWAVE TUBE RUN OFF THE ELECTRONIC TIMER. OPENING THE DOOR SHOULD SHUT IT ALL DOWN AND WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR AGAIN YOU SHOULD NEED TO PRESS THE START BUTTON AGAIN. IF NOT, ITS SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRONIC RELAY IS LOCKED CLOSED ON THE TIMER BOARD.

Something continues to run when door is shut and microwave is off


Replace your microwave to prevent electric shock. Yes it is most likely the fan still on, which makes you vulnerable to electric shock. Hope that helps

Microwave won't start


I have the same problem. Is the light still on inside the microwave? Mine is on and the microwave thinks the door is not shut. I took the top off of the microwave and the latch needs to push down on a switch once shut. The latch was reaching the switch, but I think some spring in the door, pushing the latches down, has broken since it reaches the switch when closed but there isn't any downward force to flip the switch.
I am trying to figure out how to repair the latch but if your light is on when you "shut" the door, you may have the same problem.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS --


I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

After a brief use, my microwave shut off, said end, and after we removed the item inside, the face of the oven went black. We have tried plugging and unplugging the oven into other outlets, but it still...


I say this a lot on here, but may be bad fuse due to bad connections. The fuse holders these companys use are so cheap they get hot if the unit is run for a long time and the fuse Melts at the end, and goes bad. Possibly something shorted out and blew the fuse, But, it had gotten to the point where it said end so it had completed the cook cycle. So, either over heated fuse, or bad door switch that caused it to blow the fuse.. If another switch goes bad or doesnt act like it should, another one is designed to blow the fuse when the foor is opened as a protection feature.

Stopped working


If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Sounds like cycling the power line did it.
