Question about Samsung Microwave Ovens
Microwave just went dead no power and there is power at the out let,please help
Sounds like the bulb shorted, which is very common, and the first time it blew the fuse.
It sounds like when you put the new fuse in and tried it again, the bulb was still shorted, and this time it damaged the board.
We see (and repair) thisa lot. The problem is on the control panel, whichwe regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about aweek.
Atour Web site, we have a videoavailable showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
This light failure oftenoccurs when a bulb goes out and the filamentshorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without firstunplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such afailure on the controller.
This can often alsoaffect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can beinoperable or stuck on too.

I have same problem. Disconnect the power. Take the 3 screws out of the top of vented front thus exposing 2 screws that hold down the touch pad .remove them and move touch pad out of the front and out of the way. on the extreme top right within the compartment there is a circuit board that has a fuse on it. replace the fuse and try to restart the microwave. if the fuse blows again you have a major problem probably the magnetron. If you need further help call me (403)870 9110.........Ron
