We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Samsung microwave oven Model # SMH9151S. Turntable not turning fan inside (not the exhaust fan) is not working either.


It may be a failed relay on the control board, which I repair affordably.

After cleaning, the microwave worked but


I am still working on the problem. So far the exhaust fan, the light , the clock and light inside the heating chamber has started working. I am going to sit back and think and look for the part that shorted out. Since the unit is 29 years old the bad part may not even be available. I will keep you advised after I find the culprit part. The information may be beneficial to others. Thanks

Power went out while cooking. Now light, and fan doesn't work either. Could there be a fuse?


Assuming that you have checked the voltage/breaker at the unit, There is a fuse located behind the user interface. You must exercise caution in this area as there is a high potential for harm due to the capacitor having been energized. If you are not comfortable/experienced handling high voltage, then I would strongly recommend calling for service. Hope this helps... Bill

First of all, unplug the oven when changing the bulbs, and use good quality bulbs form a home center, as opposed to dollar store or grocery store subs.

Do you mean the internal cooling fan and cooking cavity light?

I'm guessing these are not the ones you mean, but if so, please reply back and I'll address that.

I'd bet you mean the exhaust vent fan and cooktop work lights?

If you mean the latter, the problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

No light, internal fan...then no display


The light isn't a safety issue but I would think that the fan would be.

The fan is designed to remove excess heat from unit and keep it cool. Without the fan, you're now operating the unit under conditions that it wasn't designed for.

With the unit unplugged, try removing the cover and see if a fuse has blown. If so, replace it with the EXACT value of the original.

See if the unit powers up again. Try heating heating up something for 30 seconds to see if the Magnetron is still functioning.

If so, check to see if the bulb is good. Did the bulb and fan stop at the same time? If so, it might be something in common that controls both.

Don't operate it further until you have it looked at. You don't want to cause something else to fail.

Good luck!

Microwave stopped working completely


Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
