Since the owner's manual doesn't cover it, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

See these files:

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

I plugged my microwave in and nothing happens. It doesn't show the clock,'s a magic chef brand microwave.

Make certain that the outlet has power . If so you can check the fuse inside the microwave. I do not know your skill level. My suggestion if it's anything more get a new one. You can get new fuses online and at electronic supply stores.

Hi I'm Anthoney How do I set the cocking power of my magic chef MCB1110w microwave oven?

Press the Power button several times until the desired power level is reached. Each press of the Power button will reduce the power level by 10%. Using 40% power requires pressing the Power keypad 7 times. After setting the power level, then you can enter the cooking time by pressing the number buttons. Then press Start.

This is shown in the manual which is available at Manuals Lib, . See page 8 to see the positions of the Power keypad; it's to the left of the number keys. Page 9 has a chart with the power level per press of the Power button. See page 12 for the single stage cooking procedure.

I hope this helps.

Have magic chef microwave model mcd795sw need 50% power. How do I do thi

Hello, Bobbie -

You should be able to find the instructions for setting your model of Magic Chef microwave in the user's manual. My guess is that you do not have a user's manual for the MCD795SW.

This is the link to the page on where you can open the PDF file for free and choose to save the manual:
See Page 7 of the manual to learn how to choose the power level you want.

Note: You will need Adobe Reader software (free) because the manual is in PDF format. When you save the manual document, be sure you name the file you save it to in your Documents folder with a file name you can find easily - something like: Magic Chef Microwave Manual. You will probably want to print the manual for easy reference.

Best wishes.

Magic Chef microwave model#mco165ub cant seem to turn up the power level. when I hit the power level button it cycles through -20, 0 and +20 but nothing happens when I hit enter.

Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes. The microprocessor on the control panel may have locked up. Leave it unplugged for at least 15 minutes to see if it will reset.

Have a magic chef mco160uw microwave. Had a recent

No! there is no reset, the power surge has more than likely damaged the keypad controller, and on the back is a circuit board that has the microprocessor with additional components that controls the vital areas of the microwave oven. If that is gone, it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

When I try to change the power level on my Magic Chef microwave, it only lets you put in one digit. How do you make sure its on 100% or 50%?

The oven always starts at 100% power. When you enter a power level from 1 to 9, the control board reads it as 10 to 90% of full power. So power level 5 is 50%, 3 is 30% and so on.

Magic chef touch pad doesnt work

I don't have Magic chef, however, I would try hitting cancel, unplugging the microwave and waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in to reset it. Alternatively, you could go to your manual under troubleshoooting. I wish that I could help you more with this. Good luck to you. Please let me know if you figure this one out.
