Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven
Is the hood vent exhaust fan running, and do you feel good air flow?
If not, please reply back.
If the oven is not venting properly, moisture can build up inside the cavity and door panels. This will cause a condensation or steam buildup that looks like smoke.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.
