Microwave stopped working

for Emerson Microwave Oven MW8999SB

I am very frustrated. We have only had this Microwave for 6 or 7 months then one day nothing. The clock was still working but the oven nothing. We don't use it much so were not sure what happen. Went to Targart where I purchased and nothing could be done. It is in perfect shape. I am very sad because I like the Emerson Brand. I have seen many complaints about these Microwaves and I think were intitled to a new one or a refund. I don't have receipt because I figured everything was alright. Please help and make this right. Thank you Virginia zoda

    My microwave is only a few months new and now electric lightening bolts appear when I try to microwave food. There is no metal at all in the oven. I am perplexed and angry as I spent a lot of money. Got mine at Target too.

    I just wrote them a letter and I will email you back when they write back, if they do. I am not going to let this go.

    I purchased my Emerson MW8992SB in Jan. 2008 due to us moving into a new home at the end of February 2008. The microwave was in the box until we moved. Now less than a year after using the microwave, it will come on, but will not heat up. I have my receipt from Target, but they don't care. It's been longer than the 90 days. With todays time, who can afford to pay $50 + on something only to have it quit in such a short period. Apliances, etc. 15 years ago, would still be working today.

    I had the sparks thing happen, it was because of the "splash panel" its a small cover on the right hand side, inside the microwave. I called Emerson and told them what happened they immediately offered to replace the microwave and even fed ex picked it up. I purhcased mine the day after thanksgiving 2008. I did not have the receipt either. Call them, you may get resolution, the number is right on the back of the microwave down by the serial number.

    Also, I had mentioned that the sparking caused a hole to be burned into the plastic coating on the inside of the door, so that may make a difference also.

    I have had this same microwave, which I also got from Target, for about one year. I moved to a different apartment and then all of a power. No clock, no oven no nothing. And the best part about it is that Target could care less...Nice!!!!! I think I will get my next microwave from best buy and it will not be an Emerson brand.

    My husband brought this microwave just before christmas 2010. On the back it says build june 2010. Now June 2011 which we have'nt had it long. just around 6-7 months, just warming a hamburger on paper plate sparks shooting in inside and poping noise. I just read about how much trouble emerson is having with their microwaves catching fire. Something need to be done. I will call emerson in morning to see what can be done. I also brought mind from Target.

    same problem. called and reported it to Emerson. I have to send in power cord cut off, plate, roller piece, and label. The company is sending me a new microwave as soon as they receive what I need to send them.
