    I had the same problem this morning. My wife shut the door after warming a cup of coffee and the cavity light and internal fan came on. No amount of button pushing or unplugging helped. Out of frustration I slammed the door forcefully and voila! it stopped and now works normally again. I know this isn't a permanent fix to if anyone can point me to the faulty part I sure would appreciate it

    You probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount, or possibly a stuck relay.

    Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

I tried all the things on your website. Holding the clear button , unplugging,...

So I went back to the last operation that I was doing when the problem started.
I was using "reheat" so I put a glass of water in the micro turned on reheat 1 serving.
It started and then I hit clear after a few minutes and the problem went away.

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 first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

It may be a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

MICROWAVE NOT WORKING PROPERLY


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Otherwise, it sounds like a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Trouble shoot microwave


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Also, are any other of your electrical items (light bulbs, DVDs, etc.) failing lately? This could indicate improper power line voltage.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Timer Shuts off after 5 seconds


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Is it 5 seconds or 5 minutes? The difference coulsd be important, but either could indicate a bad magnetron.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.
