Cooling fan turns on very frequently

Hi the cooling fan turns over almost all the time and I can not use it because the fan won't turn off. Is there any problem with the oven ? does it need service?

<-- I could have given you some specific detailed repair information if you had included the full model number as shown on the tag on the oven (not from the manual).

And if FixYa would inform us experts when as persons responds to a request for more information, we could reply back quickly.

But since (for some reason) they won't, you'll just have to post a new help request.

But please be sure to include the full model number from the tag on the oven, and exact symptoms - what it's doing or not doing, and when.

Stops after 4 mins


Can you hear the "whirl" of the fan? It is possible the fan is not turning & cooling the oven therefore it will shut down when it reaches a certain temperature. This could be caused by a supply fault to the fan or the fan motor, either way it would need to be tested by a qulified engineer.

The power keeps shutting off


see the details and fix it. God bless you
All microwaves have some sort of a cooling fan to help keep the magnetron and controls at a tolerable level. Most OTR models will usually use the vent motor for the cooling fan also. Countertop units have a small fan behind the control panel somewhere. Either way, if the cooling fan is not working and heat builds up, it is going to open a thermostat. On some makes, this thermostat might re-set itself as soon as the temperature cools down. Other makes, you will have to replace the thermostat or fuse.
If this is your microwave oven repair problem, you will need to check the operation of the fan. Below in the component testing chart, you will see how to test the fan. Also, if possible, make sure the fan is not obstructed somehow and not turning. Also check your fan relay at your control board for voltage, if no voltage, replace control board. This fan should come on at the same time any cooking starts.

hi,
look in the back through the grille with a flashlight to see if the cooling fan is running, you should feel a slight draft there too. if not running take the cover off and oil the magnetron cooling fan with 3 in1 sewing machine oil. oil it on both sides of the motor so its saturated. if it does it again you will have to order that motor. probably at panasonic.com or searspartsdirect.com. be careful inside the microwave with the cover off, avoid the red high voltage wires. use gloves if necessary. panasonics are a pretty good oven, worth fixing..

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can still download it free here.
