    Pros: Styling, ease of use, cooks well
    Cons: Keeps beeping to tell you it's done even after you open the door.

    Summary: Our Emerson MS8102SS microwave worked great for over 8 years.  Last week my wife looked and the clock was dark, the microwave was dead.  Fortunately I found this site and all the info about the fuse.  Got a new fuse and the special ... read more

  • Best defrosting of any microwave I have ever owned.

    Pros: Cooked very evenly and defrosted like a CHAMP!
    Cons: Power consumption.  Would occasionally trip my breaker.

    Summary: I bought the Emerson MW8102SS in early 2001 for under $100.  It seems I am luckier than most as mine lasted almost 8 years.  Other reviewers seem to have had more troubles, but mine worked well and I really loved it.  I am going to ... read more

    Pros: Powerful
    Cons: You might want a larger microwave if you have a large family

    Summary: I purchased this microwave six years ago and never, ever did I have a problem with it. I actually did not expect it would last this long considering the price (about $89 tax included) I paid for it. And it is powerful too!. Expensive microwaves in the ... read more

    Pros: SPARKS! No support online found so far, company can't work it.
    Cons: Looks nice.

    Summary: We have had our microwave for 3 years now and it SPARKS like you put metal in it, but the unit is EMPTY. Will do that for a while, then a few days later, works fine. Don't know what in the world is wrong with it. ... read more

    Pros: um i guess it looks nice, if you like stainless steel
    Cons: a lot of company can't seem to figure out how to use the buttons

    Summary: as many of the other reviews here, my emerson microwave, purchased at target 3-4 years ago, just stopped working. of course, i was just about to pop some super buttery popcorn in order to enhance the viewing of my favorite tv show, but it was not to be. ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, looks good and works great.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I purchased this microwave in 2001. It has worked beautifully until yesterday. Before throwing it out I decided to get information on it. I'm glad I did. Hopefully its just the fuse in mine also. I love this microwave and it has our performed all that ... read more

    Pros: style
    Cons: short life

    Summary: I've had my microwave for 2 years as well(Target) and my microwave is also dead. I'll change the fuse, like everyone else, but I believe we should expect more from the product. Even though the cost was relatively inexpensive, if they had put a sign on ... read more

    Pros: Cooks well and evenly. Great power. Nice, clean design. Ease of use/learning curve.
    Cons: Not one. Honestly.

    Summary: I really must be lucky? I can't tell you how happy I have been with this machine. It cooks very quickly and evenly and has never had a problem (even though I am pretty hard on it). I have owned it for 4 years now & will certainly buy Emerson ... read more

    Pros: Guess it was a good buy at the time.
    Cons: Will check reviews of equipment before my next purchase.

    Summary: I guess I should feel lucky my appliance went almost four years. I am upset that Target won't handle the equipment repair or at least send it out. I am going to check that fuse a few folks have been talking about. I was looking on the inside for it. ... read more

    Pros: $98, easy to use/clean...take care of it and it will take care of you
    Cons: unfortunately while looking good until touched the stainless steel tends to collect fingerprints quite well.

    Summary: We purchased this microwave 2 years ago and have been nothing but happy with it. No fuse problems, it's easy to use and since it only cost $98 to begin with...how much more can u expect. Seriously, you get what you pay for and at just $98 i think that ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, Good Looks, Thorough Heating
    Cons: It took me two trips to the hardware store.

    Summary: Our MW8102SS has performed flawlessly for the past 4 years or so. It's survived multiple moves and has held up like a champ. That is until I was heating up this morning's breakfast burrito ;) Sure enough the previously mentioned fuse had blown. In ... read more

    Pros: Good looking
    Cons: A pet mouse has a longer life span.

    Summary: Well, here i am with another sob story about this microwave. We bought our microwave at Target a year and a half ago.... it is now broken as of today. The "start" button won't work, and all the other buttons work like a dream. Ironic, no? I'll be ... read more

  • Just a Blown Fuse!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Stylish, Easy to Use, Reasonably Priced
    Cons: Replaced a Fuse and Now it Works Great

    Summary: Ours lasted just over 3 1/2 years before it went dead the other day. I suspected a blown fuse so I went on online to look up the manual. After stumbling across this site I found many others had the same problem. Reading everyone's reviews convinced me ... read more

    Pros: Style
    Cons: Tough security hex bits in the rear

    Summary: I'll echo the review by sundaypunch. Ours worked for 2.5 years and died suddenly one day. Rather than tossing it out of frustration, I opened that back and tested the sole fuse that I found on top. Sure enough, it was blown. A trip to the hardware ... read more

    Pros: Great power, looks really good in stainless
    Cons: well, it seems to like to blow its fuse

    Summary: After my microwave died I stumbled onto this stream of reviews that told a consistent story - young appliances, purchased at Target - and it made me smile to see that I wasn't alone. I sort of figured there was a fuse in there that might be the issue, ... read more

    Pros: looks nice
    Cons: does not last long

    Summary: After 3 years, this microwave has started to spark. (The type of spark you might see if you microwaved a fork, BUT WITHOUT THE FORK!!!) It sounds like the others had microwaves that just stopped working. I'd be curious to know if they experienced any ... read more

  • Finding Parts is a NIGHTMARE!

    Pros: Nice looking; one-touch cooking buttons are good.
    Cons: FINDING PARTS IS A NIGHTMARE! STAY AWAY!!

    Summary: Unlike other people's experience, my Emerson microwave has worked fine. Problem is, I lost the glass tray and roller guide in a move across country, and finding these replacement parts is a joke! Some online parts suppliers have the glass tray for $98! ... read more

    Pros: Good cooking power, 1100 watts. Stylish.
    Cons: none

    Summary: If power goes out completely while cooking, probably power fuse. Good Service 4 1/2 years. The 20 amp ceramic in-line power fuse went out after 4 1/2 years but was easily replaced. You can get three at Radio shack for 2.50. I think over time fuses ... read more

    Pros: It's only $69 or so
    Cons: It's only $69 or so.

    Summary: Mine has lasted 3 years without a problem and then suddenly stopped working yesterday. An online search led me to this site and I was not particularly happy when I read the first few reviews. Prior to throwing it in the garbage and buying a new microwave ... read more
