You have blown a fuse. Check inside the oven chamber and look for missing powder paint or signs of arcing, if so there is a paint to repair microwaves for this issue or else just dispose of the microwave. If the inside is good remove all the screws and remove the cover. Replace the fuse. If the magnetron was making louder noises prior then replace the magnetron. Since the fuse went the giant capacitor is likely bad. While the cabinet is open make sure to look for burned wires, check the continuity of thermal cutoffs, and check the main circuit-board for burned traces or components. The relays in most electronics are known for arcing (spot welding) and staying in the wrong position. Tap them hard with the back end of a screwdriver. During all of this use safe electrical practices by having the power cord unplugged. The capacitor could still have a high charge on it so be careful.

Hi I have a Samsung SMH9187 micowave that is dead (no display, light, fan, mirowave).


Sounds like the main fuse blew. It's either near where the power cord enters the cabinet, or behind the control panel (if an over the range unit).

You may also have some type of failure in the high voltage circuit; based on your description of the symptoms.

Samsung SMH1816S suddenly stopped working from fully functional state. A click sound was heard when it went dead. After that no sign of life even with power on. Checked ceramic fuses on noise filter to be...


Repairman just diagnosed mine as a bad display board, it quit working while nobody was even home, and cost $269 with a $70 service fee. The microwave is less than 2 years old and only cost @$400 new. I was lied to by the salesman when I made the purchase (imagine that, a salesman lied to a customer) he told me these were very good and reliable microwaves and that I should get years of service out of it, what a crock... I will never buy another Samsung appliance again, they have many many bad reviews and are made with inferior parts. I will stick with Kenmore kitchen products from now on!!!

We installed a GE Spacemaker Microwave. I put some potatoes in and the microwave was working, suddenly it went off. No light nothing, it just went completely dead. Came back ON after 15 mins,started...


The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.

TOTALLY DEAD


CHECK THE FUSE ON CONTROLL BOARD, CHECK THE CONTINUITY OF THE LOW VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER.

Did you unplug it for several minutes and them plug it back in?

If that dosn't resolve your problem, it sounds to me like the microprocessor controller board has failed and will need to be replaced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
