Magic Chef microwave (with dials)

Post by KYAvion » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:35 pm

The Magic Chef microwave in my 84 suddenly stopped working. No odd sounds or anything unusual--it just stopped. The design is one with two dials. One dial controls the cooking time and the other controls the heat setting. There are no buttons or other controls. Any suggestions about what the problem/fix might be? The breaker is not tripped.

Guessing it might be the timer switch assuming it controls on and off also. If it is easy to get to it could be tested out of circuit with a multimeter.

Good thought. You're probably right.
