If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

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

Then you can get to the door switches to check them.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Samsung Over-The-Range Microwave Oven just went out, wont come on at all.


Hello Terrell,

If "wont come on at all" means no light when door is open, no clock, nothing, then assume complete loss of power to that circuit.
These are often powered by an isolated circuit with its own breaker. The first place to look is your power distribution panel and see if you can find a tripped breaker.
If yes, then reset the breaker and see if the microwave has lights, clock, etc.
If no breakers are tripped, the actual microwave plug is often in a cabinet above the microwave. Sometimes, these may get pulled out while moving items in and out of the cabinet, so check that too.
If unsuccessful, microwaves also include an internal line and/or thermal fuse which fail due to overloading. Also, the control panel can go bad or become unplugged from slamming the door, etc.
If you do have lights, clock etc., then a faulty door latch will prevent operation of the microwave generator.

Unfortunately, will need additional information to properly identify the potential.
I hope this helps.

The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

I would say the lamp popped and took the fuse, so you will need to replace the lamp also.

Says "Door open more than 5 minutes" when it hasn't


You are going to have to replace the door switch. The switch is staying open even when it should be closed. Talking about electrical current. Once that part is replaced everything will work just fine.
