Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: Blown Fuse
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

There's no reset button, only a a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
minute or so. Then plug it back in and see if ti works.
A microwave can be dead for many reasons.
It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
