Magic Chef saus no warranty because the new one doesn't start the warranty time over. Is this right?
I wouldn't stand for that.

A continuing issue under warranty is still under warranty till resolved

Mine does this and was replaced by the dealer. I guess my question is why does it get too hot after cooking? Is there not enough ventilation? I think it's a safety issue.

We noticed that ours sounded different. We had the dealer check it and the fan wasn't running. It is being replaced under the extended warranty.

Had one in the sticks&bricks that shut down when cooking something that created too much steam. It would come back on eventually. Got fed up and bought a new one

Magic Chef Microwave overheating

We have the same issue in our 2011 Sunseeker 2650DS, it shut off, started back up in 15 minutes. The outside vent was open, exhaust fan on and had one burner running on the stove which may have caused it to overheat. We have run this before for 20 minutes with no issues but no stove burnrs were lit.
