Microwave Oven Popped and not working

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
October 3rd, 2012

I was trying to boil 6 eggs in the Emerson microwave oven model # MW8626W. The time was set to 15 minutes but after 10 minutes, it made a popping sound and went dead. One egg and water were splattered on/under the dish. The other 5 eggs were edible. The microwave oven does not work anymore.

If the microwave does not appear to have power (control won't light up and the light does not work) then I recommend that you check the electrical outlet. Plug a small lamp or appliance into the microwave socket to see if it has power. If the outlet is dead, I recommend that you check the house circuit breaker. If the microwave is not damaged and you reset the breaker, then the unit may begin working properly.

If that outlet is okay and the microwave will not power up or work, then you probably have a blown fuse or an internal failure that will need to be diagnosed and repaired by a service technician. As noted in the above response and that link for a previous answer, microwaves are dangerous to service.

That appears to sound ominous. I would precede with caution. Microwave ovens are the only appliance we absolutely discourage any form of customer repair due to the fact that they hold lethal amounts of voltage, even if unplugged. They also require radiation shielding testing to make sure radiation does not seep into you kitchen. Depending on the age, either replace it or have Sears repair it. I have provided a link below that you can review. Have a nice morning.
