It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

No Light and the turntable is not working


Open your microwave completely unscrewed but make sure it is disconnected from the power; check all the other fuses inside, if it doesn't fix the issue then take it to a pro to get this fix.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave Oven, Model #MW8992SB. Def1 stays on continuously. When I hit "stop, clear" it beeps off and then beeps "Def1" immediately. Then eventually I am able to hit "1" or "start"...


So many microwaveso have issues because there are millions and millions of them. You need to study the booklet and set aside some time to explore it. Write down what you do and assess it. In about an hour you'll figure it out. Download the booklet! Ovens are similar with various timers. It gets complex owing to the size of the electronic controlsystem.but totally fixable!

Emerson microwave MW8992SB Just nothing. No clock no light. worked last night.Has electricity to it.


The main fuse has blown inside the microwave, the most common reasons are, one or more of the door switches is defective, the high voltage capacitor has shorted, or possibly the high voltage diode, and sometimes it just the fuse. I recommend a tv tech or appliance repairman because there are dangerous high voltage present.

How many watts does Emerson MW8675W Microwave have?


Is the cubic foot size of the microwave on the name plate?? It seems that with Emerson the size relates closely to the wattage .. 0.9 cu ft is 900 watts, 1.1 cu ft is 1000 watts .. 0.7 cu ft is 700watts .. That would be the closest info I can get.

Please vote !!

Broken turntable


The owner's manual is online at:
http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8992SB-RD.pdf

You can contact Emerson at their number in the manual for a replacement.

I always suggest that people place food (especially popcorn) off-center on the tray (not in the middle) because the heating is better, plus the extreme heat is not always applied to the same spot in the tray each time.

Food placed in the middle will not cook as evenly.

Good luck, and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
