    Did that tag say "model number" next to that number?

    On an over the range model, the model number tag is usually inside the cooking cavity, on the front edge of the cooking cavity, on the left side of the control panel frame, or on the right edge of the door, and visible only when the door is open.

    On counter top models, it may be in any of those locations, or on the back of the microwave.

    Is this the "model number" as shown on the tag / in the microwave?

    That doesn't look like a proper Samsung model number.

    Sounds like a keypad problem, but it may need a reset.

    Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.




    If that doesn't work,
    leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard
    reset does not fix it.

TO mdambros

You have a bad magnetron. We see this over and over.

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'll save a lot by taking it in yourself.

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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

TO guest (Panasonic oven)

The door switch you suspected is bad, and it must be replaced. They normally cannot be cleaned or burnished and be reliable.

Assuming that your internal cooling fan is working, I would suspect that your magnetron is failing.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the
left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I would check the cooling fan, then suspect the magnetron.

Sharp R395 Microwave.. cant set clock.


Sounds likein the moving you loostened wires in the front panel or flexed the circuit board inside. You will need to open the control panel and inspect it. It could also be just some dirt or dust getting on the controls....blow it out with clean dry compressed air!

Stuck on demo and cild lock


My Samsung did this as well. Unplug for at least two minutes and plug back in. Press the clock button twice. Set the time and press clock button once more. Doesn't have to be correct time, any time will do as you can go back and set correct time later. After pressing clock it should be out of demo mode. Try 1 second on high cooking. This should take care of the problem.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

How do i set clock for time of day


You can download your owner's manual free here.

From the manual:

SETTING THE CLOCK - When the microwave oven is plugged into an outlet, the oven will display " 0:00 "

1. Press the CLOCK button; the hour digit will blink
and the clock indicator will light.

2. Press the number keys to set current hour.

3. Press the number keys to set current minute.

4. Press AM/PM to choose AM or PM.

5. Press the CLOCK button again; the display will
show the present time. After the clock has been
set, the time will appear with blinking colon,
unless the oven is cooking or defrosting.

NOTES:

- To reset the present time in the display window when the oven is off, press the CLOCK button and
reset.

- If you make a mistake when setting the time, press the STOP/CLEAR button.

- To recall the actual time while the oven is cooking or defrosting, simply press the CLOCK button
and the display will show the actual time for three seconds.
