Our microwave died on our last trip. It is a built in Magic Chef MCD991ARB. I have pulled it out. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement? We will be limited on size due to its location. Thanks in advance.

Most microwaves have an internal fuse. Did you check that?

It will run for 2 seconds and cut off. Clock is still working on it.

They didn't have one that small. At least ours didn't and we have two close by.

I recently bought a used Class A and my microwave did the same thing. I had put a cup of water in to test it. It ran for a few seconds then stopped. The clock still worked fine but not the microwave. After numerous tries I found the door was warped slightly. The upper latch makes the internal switch to allow it to work. Apparently the upper door latch was not fully engaging the switch.
I opened the door and slightly twisted the door (pushed top in and pulled bottom out) as to not break the glass. Closed the door and it has worked fine since.
I know you've already pulled it out but try this. Next time you try yours and if it runs a few seconds then stops, try pushing in the top of the door.

Do a Google search for "microwave runs for two seconds and stops." It's not an uncommon issue and fixable. I think I remember is being discussed on this forum.

Microwaves are so cheap, a broken one only demands to be landfilled.
