Question about Samsung MW1080STA Microwave Oven
My microwave has the code A-1 in the display and sometimes when it feels like it, it'll beep and go to A-2 and A-3 and back again. I can't do anything with it. The keypad won't accept anything and I've plugged and unplugged and even tried differnt outlets and still the same problem. Is it time for a new microwave?
I couldn't find those exact trouble codes, but a common problem is when the controller gets damp, either from steam rising from the cooktop or someone spraying cleaner directly on the keypad. Cleaners should always be sprayed on a soft cloth, then wipe the keypad with the cloth. Also, GE / Samsung codes of F1, F2 and F3 may be the same since Samsung makes GE microwaves. Those would mean trouble with the temperature sensor, keypad, or control panel. Assuming your control panel is clean and dry, it may be time to call for service.

I have this Samsung MW 1080 STA for four some years, and lately showed the code A-1 in the display out of nowhere, in the middle of night, or during the day without anybody touching or using it. It'll beep twice, then, go to A-2 and A-3, and back again. When you cancel, it will disappear, but it will come back right away in 2 to 3 seconds. It becomes a headache because I had to unplug it after each use. Any ideas, please?

Tips for a great answer:
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board.
