Follow this steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU

  1. Check the power diode This electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitor Responsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetron Responsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal Cutoffs Examine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Shm1816s Samsung microwave oven wont shut off All lights off turn table not turning but you can hear the humming. the turn table plate gets very hot.


Hi,
if the turntable is getting hot it means that the microwave is working but as the turntable is not turning , it means the adjustment of the door lock of your microwave may have become improper due to use.may be it got damaged.
call the technician of samsung microwave ,he will open the cabinet of microwave and make the adjustment of door lock proper.
Thanks

My oven is not getting hot but the light is working when you turn the knob.


Your magnetron is most likely out. This you should not fix yourself. If your not attached to the microwave i would suggest just get a new one.

It does not get hot nor does the table turn, it is 3 yers old. Can it be repaired or is there an emergency switch to turnit off if it gets to hot that I can reset? It is Fridgidaire over the range with a...


Thank you for using FixYa,
There is no emergency switch to turn the microwave off if it gets too hot, but there are several fuses inside which may have "blown". If nothing is working at all i.e. no light , no turntable, no heat it sounds like the main fuse has gone. With the outer casing off, follow the main power cord into the microwave and within about 5 or 10 cm from where the cord enters there should be a fuse ( generally glass) the size of the fuse will be printed on the end caps of the fuse.

Well worth repairing.

Hope this helps

Our fridge is getting hot! The vents appear to be clear; but it is hot on top by the lights. When I close the door switch, the lights don't turn off, and I think that the heat is coming from the light...


Hi

There should be a proximity door switch located somewhere around the edge of the door frame which should shut the light off when you close the door.

This could be 'sticking' on or is shorted out.

Try to locate the switch and press it in and out a few times, if that doesn't free it you will need a new switch.

you need to remove the outer cover,then carefully discharge the high voltage capacitor with 2 insulated screwdrivers or an insulated jumper wire,then test this and the high voltage diode and the internal ceramic fuse for continuity

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.


Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

Microwave don't work


You didnt mention if the oven worked or not. Its not blowing the fuse?? Ok it could be as simple as the Diode or capacitor but dont try to touch the capacitor terminals as it holds a nice charge.. Turn on the oven for a bit with a cup of water inside and let it run for a few minutes. If you start to see smoke pull the plug right away!!!!! If you dont let the water boil(about 2 to 3 minutes thyen unplug and carefully fell around for a HOT part, But dont touch any electrical connections! If theres something drawing to much current it will get hot. Ive had bad capacitors bad and causes the transformer to get too hot. as well as bad magnatrons cause the transformer to get to hot. I would recomend that you take this unit in to be diagnoised as there are alot of voltage in this oven as I ststed before and it is dangerous for a handyperson to be fiddling with it. Good Luck
