Think my fuse blowed

Generally, Microwave ovens have a glass fuse on the main filter board inside the microwave itself. Attempting to replace this yourself (opening the microwave covers) is not advisable. There are several components inside a microwave oven that run at 2000-3000 volts and though it is unlikely, there is a chance the capacitor on the high voltage side is still charged and presents a LETHAL hazard. A repair of this nature should be referred to a qualified technician.

My MAGIC CHEF MCO153uw stopped working. It heats

This sounds like a thermal protector is turning the microwave off. If I were to hazard a guess, it would be the magnetron (produces the microwaves) is overheating causing the shutdown. If the fan was not running it would create the same condition by causing the magnetron to overheat.

Microwave comes on by itself in middle of night

This absolutely is a fire hazard.

Until it is fixed, you are right to either unplug it or simply leave the door open when you;re not using it.

You have a failed membrane keypad.

If you would like to have us to do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave turns on by itself

You have a shorting keypad. This can be very dangerous and result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it;s not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find Magic Chef parts here.

If not, please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

Microwave turned on by itself

Have you tried unplugging it than reapplying power ? Sometimes a power up reset will clear the logic on the control card and yes.. if it continues to run ...you have a potential fire hazard...

Have you looked on the magic chef recall website? I read about the same problem on the Samsung recall website about microwaves turning themselves on.
