It could have been steam or humidity.

If this is an over the range model, be sure you always use the hood vent exhaust fan when you're cooking on the stove top.

Whether it's a counter top or over the range top, always be aware that the cooling fan is running when it's cooking.

When in doubt feel for air flow through the vents.

Good luck.

This is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical interference and disruption in the control circuit board.

If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.

It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.

If you or 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.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

You can order Samsung parts here.

You can find your nearest Samsung-authorized service center here.

To find out if yours was recalled, please call Samsung's Service Division at 800-932-3837.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

No power, no lights, no clock. Nothing works on my Samsung over the range microwave model SMH17138


Your microwave may be plugged into a regular receptacle which is on a circuit breaker often in a cupboard above the range.Check around to see if anything else is not working. Check your circuit breaker box for a breaker that needs resetting. If you see one out of line with the others turn it off and then back on. Good luck..

Microwave stops randomly on its own, dispaly flickers and I get prompted to enter clock settings, what should I do to fix it


When a microwave asks for the clock settings, it has lost power. Check the plug and the outlet for damage or if it is loose. When on, vibrations can cause the plug to reposition if loose enough. Even a very short loss of power will reset the microwave. If the plug/outlet is ok, then check to make sure that the fuse for the outlet is tightened fully (breaker switches do not have this problem). Last, try another outlet as the wiring to the outlet may be loose.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

Microwave pops hose breakers. Microwave gets


The problem is in the microwave oven, you have a short in the power supply or it could be a defective door switch, either way the unit needs to be checked out.

We lost our electrical power, when it came back on, the electrical panel (clock).. began blinking. The clock re-set with no problem. But, now the microwave won't work. I simply get a message that says...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Anytime the power comes back on, their is a serge of power and things get blown up.
in the future, when you know you have a power outage.. turn off your main breakers,, then after the power comes on, then turn your power, you will not get the serge.
now go to you oven breaker and reset both switches, and see if your door lock corrects.

If you still cant get the microwave working, i have to give you this warning, and only say you have a defective control board.

Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

How do you reset the microwave power? Is there an external circuit breaker if the main house circuit breaker did not switch off?


There is an internal cartridge fuse, as well as thermal fuses. It is not recommended that you attempt any internal repairs on a microwave due to the presence of very high voltages and the danger of microwave radiation if not reassembled correctly. Residential microwaves, if not under warrranty, are generally considered disposable. Parts and service are very expensive.

Has no power


If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.
thanks
