Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS

I have only had this microwave about 9-10 months. All of a sudden when I tried to heat up something--I press the cook time and enter it, then hit start. The light comes on inside the oven and the clock counts down the time - but the oven is not working. The turn table is not turning, and the fan/motor is not working. Nothing has happen to this oven. I only use it about once a day--nothing metal, or incorrect is ever been used in this oven. What happened? Help! I have a sharp carousel, the timer counts down and the light comes on but it is not working.

First of all, since it's under warranty, I would call Emerson or a local servicer who repairs Emerson microwaves under warranty. You probably have a defective door switch or broken door switch mount.

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"

Emerson microwave oven model number MW8115SS

You don't state how old your oven is, or if you tried other food items afterwords. I also assume you inspected for foreign metal objects in the oven? If it does this whenever you attempt to cook in it, then it sounds as if your oven may have a wave guide cover malfunction or burned area.This part can be replaced by the consumer in most cases, but only after consulting with a trained technician or your parts supplier.

Emerson microwave oven model mw8115ss

There is not much you can do about this. There may be a reset button on the control panel, try it. You can try slamming the door a couple of times & looking on the back for any fuses. If this fails, scrap the oven & get a new one, as they are generally not worth repairing.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS

I bought my emerson microwave 3 years ago model# mw8115ss from walmart and have had all the problems that everyone has talked about and I thought about throwing it away until I thought about one small detail, the FUSE. China uses junky glass fuses that burst instantly with a slight power outage, door slamming to hard, moving it around, and of course constant use like myself always heating up water for bottles. I took the back of the microwave off and walla!!! a blown fuse, but wait!!! dont buy another glass fuse!!! go to your local home depot and get the ceramic fuse for microwave ovens!!! they are $2.83 at my local home depot. I replaced the junky glass fuse with the ceramic one and it has worked perfectly for six months now.

DONT let someone tell you that you cant replace a glass fuse with a ceramic one because they are full of boloney. My microwave did all kinds of things, it wouldnt turn sometimes, it would come on by itself, it would beep for no reason, turn but not heat up, you name it I had the problem. When a fuse starts to go out it can make your appliances do some strange things, check the fuse and replace it with a CERAMIC one and I promise it should eliminate your problem.
