Question about Samsung SMH7174BC Microwave Oven
This is usually a shorted high voltage diode or a bad magnetron.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
You can order Samsung parts here.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
Some manufacturers will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.
You can find your nearest Samsung-authorized service center here.
