Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Microwave stopped working completely

New microwave-August 07-finished cooking-fan started by itself then entire unit shut down-no lights/clock/or anything. I checked the circuit breaker and plug which were both fine.
(The microwave was hot, possibly from stove top and microwave cooking, though the plug was not at all.)
Please help! Where are the fuses? do I need to hire someone to copletely remove the unit to change?

    My magic chef microwave mco153uw is only a couple of years old and yesterday I was using it and it worked fine then all of a sudden it lost all power. I checked breaker box and it was fine and there was still power to the outlet. then after about 20 min it turned back on and had reset itself. I used it again and the same thing happened. Any ideas?

    Had the exhaust fan on for a bit due to smoke in oven; then a little while later popped popcorn, now completely dead microwave; fuses are o.k.

    Read the instructions if all else fails. It is perfectly normal. When something is cooking on the stove, under the microwave it will sense heat and turn fan on. It is in the manual!

Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.

If you just bought this in August of 2007, then it's under warranty and you should let Magic Chef fix it for free!

Ge pvm2070smss shuts down


It may be a noisy magnetron if the failure occurs in a second or two of hitting "Start" to begin cooking.

See this FixYa solution. even though your model number is different.

Otherwise, if the internal cooling fan is not running when you are cooking, it will shut down after 30-60 seconds or so and stay off until it cools back down.

During cooking, the microwave will work for about 3 minutes then completely shut down.There appears to be a complete power failure.After the units sits for about 5 minutes,it resets itself and you can cook...


sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out


The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

Samsung MU3250W Shut down


It could have been steam or humidity.

If this is an over the range model, be sure you always use the hood vent exhaust fan when you're cooking on the stove top.

Whether it's a counter top or over the range top, always be aware that the cooling fan is running when it's cooking.

When in doubt feel for air flow through the vents.

Good luck.

We had this problem. It was installed improperly - to recirculate instead of to vent.
