Don't tell anyone that you did not install a surge suppression on it either.

I have a power monitor/surge suppression deivce for it that will keep it from blowing out for $39.00

Samsung Microwave Oven SMH7159 No Power


The power outage may have been accompanied with a power surge. That can happen with lightning strikes, or if a large inductor (electric motor or equivalent) happened to be on the same power line at the time of the outage. There's a good chance a surge took out the control panel.

NO power but fuse OK


If dead, but fuse is o.k., then check all the thermal cut outs to see if any "normally closed" ones are open. Avoid the high voltage capacitor. It can shock, or kill you; even weeks after the oven has last been used.

No power dead


power outages cause power surges and will damage electronic control boards. I suggest replacing the Control board and checking the interlocking door switches. Whilst inside the microwave check the magnetron for discoloration around the magnetron horn or gun as it were. If it don't look clean and new, otherwise burnt it's bad !

I accidently ran it for a few minutes wih nothing in it. I turned it off and everyting seemed fine. Later I walked in kitchen and there is no light, power or anything.


I assume you checked the power cord and house power circuit breaker panel... possibly tripped unrelated to your running the microwave empty.

(the following is from http://www.kellerstudio.de/repairfaq/sam/micfaq.htm#mictotdo)


The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.

Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.

If those are not the problems, then the main fuse is the most likely suspect for a totally dead microwave.
Remember, while you can do some repairs on you microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, let me know and I will point you in the direction of some good resources.

I inadvertently had the power on rather than the "kitchen timer"-about 10 minutes. I switched to the kt, but everything went dead within a minute. Did I kill it?


Wait an hour or so, it may come back on, there are thermostats inside, some of them are self-resetting, some are not. Good luck.

We had an power outage and lost power for a few hours everything came back on but the microwave. I checked the outlet and checked the fuse still nothing. Is there anything that can be fixed?


Hello if you have no power at the outlet, you may have saved your microwave. If the outlet is dead go to your house electrical panel and reset the breaker or replace the fuse. if the outlet is live and the microwave still won't power on you will have to choose between repair and replacement. Definitely get an estimate before agreeing to a repair as microwaves are very inexpensive today compared to even a couple of years ago.

Daewoo Microwave KOG 867 T9-DEAD??


There could be a main fuse inside the unit. Mine has one that is ceramic, sort of like the old glass car fuses but ceramic instead of glass. Digi-Key has all kinds of fuses, www.digikey.com.
