Question about Samsung Microwave Ovens

Light Goes On and Off

My microwave has to stay unplugged until I want to use it and when I do, the stove light underneath freaks out. It will go from high to low to off over and over and over! Until I have to unplug it again. I tried to hold the Start and Cancel buttons to see if it would 'Reset' but, no dice :(

Sounds like a bad control board! Not really something a person would want to attempt to replace, unless you are VERY comfortable around circuit boards. Given that you are, the part would probably cost more than a new oven! Good luck.

SOURCE: Everything works... except the heat!

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

A full Sears/Kenmore model number usually has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

SOURCE: Whirlpool mh3184xp- microwave and lights turn on by themselves

I am currently experiencing the same problem. I called in Sylvia Brown because I thought that my room could have been haunted...come to find out IT WAS!! She said I did not have a short in my microwave, and that the reason it was turning on was because "the spirit" in my room wanted to kill me. My microwave plate produced a white, foamy, brownish color which she said was what would have killed me. You need to get your houses/apartments looked at if you are currently having the same issue. We thought everything was ok, and come to find out we really were being hunted down by spirits. Run away....FAST!!!!



p.s. this is the above writer's roommate....she's NOT lieing!!!!! be on the lookout for the white foamy brownish spot....it WILL get you, it got me. DUN DUN DUN

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

SOURCE: KitchenAid built in microwave model #KHMS155LSS-4.

Whirlpool is conducting a safety recall on the Kitchenaid KHMS155L series (and similar models under other brand names) that display the F2 code or have been observed self-starting. Other symptoms may be additional codes or unintelligible info being displayed, and failure to execute the command entered into the control pad. To obtain free replacement of the control panel, call Ava at Whirlpool: 1-866-640-7146, extension 6337. She will want your complete model and serial numbers and a phone number and address where you can be reached. She will arrange for A & E Factory Service to contact you to set up an appointment to come out and replace the control panel at no cost to you.

Lights under microwave will not come on


When this happens, a lot of the time, it is because the the old bulb burnt up violently or it was unscrewed with the power still on to the unit and if the wires on the bottom of the bulb were twisted together, it probably blew a trace off of the back of the circuit board that supplies power to te bulbs. So either need to find someone to repair the circuit board or buy a new one if you can put it in, if not, need to call a servicer to replace it. But caution, thay are not cheap!!! Always unplug you microwave BEFORE replacing the bulbs!!!!!

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

I have a roper mounted microwave above my stove. i just need to know what kind of bulb goes underneath it.


Since you obviously intend replacing the bulb yourself (good for you!) you should first remove the old bulb and that will make it easier to find a new one. Chances are, its a common bulb, readily available wherever light bulbs are sold. Or, at the very least, a hardware store like Tru-Value or Home Base.
