I am not a handyman type, but I would like to ask for instructions on how to replace the control panel on my smh8165 panel. It was flickering for a while, then just stopped working. I plan to order a control panel, but am affraid, and not sure of how to replace it, and don't want to waste the $$$.

SOURCE: no power, no working buttons for microwave

Hi,

Even if there is an internal fuse, I doubt if that is the problem since as you posted, there is display albeit "XXXXX" which indicates that power is coming in. Should you still be interested, the fuse would normally be on the top right part inside an aluminum plate (air guide bracket) covered by the grill right above the door.

You can try a hard reset hoping that it is just a software glitch by unplugging from the mains for an hour or so to dissipate whatever electricity is stored inside. assuming ho hardware fault, this should revert the unit back into factory defaults.

If the fuse appears OK and the reset does not prove to be corrective, then it is likely that the electronic circuit board inside has been fried. Since this involves a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and possibly soldering, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Alternately, should you venture a DIY, you could try asking for parts replacement and further instructions from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Have an old Kenmore 1000

Sound liek a problem with your hi-voltage system has gone bad. The noise you are hearing is the hi-voltage transformer. This has taken the magnetron which does the heating out.

If I dont mistake, t
he magnetron has a five year warranty on it, the rest of these parts only have a year on them. If your microwave looks and sounds normal but isn't producing any heat, you should check the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry and the circuit board for problems. You will need a certified technician to help you make these repairs.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ge profile microwave jvm1870sf02 buttons don't work do i need to change the control panel frame or Bkt c/panel

You will need to change the keypad along with the control board, because they are essentially of one piece. But the part will equal, if not more than a new microwave oven.

SOURCE: my smh8165 microwave stopped working

Unplug microwave. Remove (2) flat head machine screws on the top of the microwave holding in the top front trim. My trim slid left and gently pulling was removed. The control panel has (1) screw holding it in. Remove screw, slide up and gently pulling detach from microwave. There are (5) electrical disconnects which need to be disconnected. Do not force they should come easily. Lay control panel on and old towel. Squirt both the male and female connections(in microwave control panel opening) with electrical cleaner. Carefully clean up excess. Connect the (5) quick disconnects and carfully fit back in the control panel opening. Attach screw. Place top trim in and slide right to lock. Once it is in secure the top two screws. Clean area and plug back in. Hopefully your up and running. These pieces break real easy so don't force anything.

OTR Samsung Microwave fan comes on with no reason. Any way to fix it?


Does this happen while you are cooking on the range burners under the control panel?? These type microwaves have a heat sensor built into them in the area of the control panel bottom. If the microwave control gets too hot from cooking on the stove below it the heat sensor will turn the fan on to keep the control panel from getting heat damage. The fan should go off after everything cools off.

Samsung Microwave SMH9187 error message (?) 5E


You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

Can i just replace the pull handle which pulled away from the door


Hi lmnj1961,

From my experience, that is possible, but it needs to be replaced with an exact type, especially for safety purposes. Perhaps some handyman you know may be able to help. Do not forget that if the door is not properly fitted, the switch that tells the Microwave that the door is closed may be malfunctioned. That is how a microwave can only turn on with the doors closed.

Hope this helps,

How to change control panel for microwave


I dont see that model in my list but that dosent it dosent exist.. first thing to do is unplug the unit!! Now dont be touching anything inside cause theres a capacitor inside that holds a nice charge.. Take off the cover and look at how the from assy comes out. There sholf be some screws holding the entire front panel in plase. If you think you've located them. slightly pull out on the panel and unplug the plugs and any single wires make sure you mark where they go. Get the board or the entire front panel and reverse instructions. Now its never a good idea for an hobbiest/handyman to mess around with a major appliance like a microwave,tv set or stove. if I were you I would contact http;//www.repairclinic.com and get there # and speak to them directly about this model Or best thing would be to take it into a repair shop to have repaired.. The only problem with replaceing the control panel is the cost ofd the part!! I found that even larger types of good microwaves are less the 200 bucks as some control panels can cost over 125 bucks. it your chice man. Good Luck
