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.

My friend has no internet, she has a emerson microwave grill model MWG9115SL suffixD. She needs to know how to brown food in the microwave.

My GE microwave has a metal stand that sits on top of the glass tray and places food closer to the magnetron for browning. Emerson may use a similar arrangement.

How many amps does a microwave pull

Depends on the make and model but they are required to post that information on a label on the unit. It may be on the back or the bottom. IF the label is missing, it is probably pulling around 15 AMPS

Emerson red 900 watt microwave glass turntable

Replacement trays cost around $30.00. The cheapest I found was on Ebay for $28.00. By the time you pay for shipping you can almost buy a new appliance. Also take care that you find one for your model, you can't always tell by looking if it is going to fit.Try your local Goodwill or other thrift store for a used one.Good luck

Emerson microwave mw8780ss, door won't open

I can tell you what we did when we had that issue with our Maytag microwave. The door wouldn’t latch correctly and an appliance repairman said we would have to get a new microwave. My husband took the spring out and decided to just put the spring back. It had come unhooked somehow. He put it back and it’s worked fine going on 3 years later.

Is there any particular ways to mount this emerson mw8999rd microwave?

I wouldn't suggest drilling holes or putting screws into a microwave oven in case you hit something on the inside. If you are attempting to stop it from falling out, Ive been to repairs before where the Customer has used a large blob of silastic on each corner of the base to glue it into place. This was on caravan installations where they didn't want it to fall out whilst in travel. It was a job to get the unit out, but it served the purpose.
