Question about Samsung 1.8 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave
Model smh9187st Microwave will start by itself in baked potato setting- only 2 years old. Do you have a fix?
Likely a microprocessor/control panel issue. Microwave ovens that sit over ranges often have electronic failures due to heat, humidity, and grease, from the range below, which come into contact with their main circuit boards.

If it's less than a year old, you should contact the manufacturer for free warranty repair.
If it's older than that, the magnetron should be covered for anywhere from 5-9 years.
I would certainly contact the manufacturer. If you don't have your owner's manual, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you link up with them.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

It turned out to be the three door attachments that weren't lined up. It has been fixed. We almost bought a new one because Samsung referred us to a service that would have charged way too much to be worth it even thought the machine is only 3 or so years old. Luckily, we looked further. A local independent appliance fixer came to the house and took care of it within a few hours of my call! Yea!

"SE " means your membrane keypad is shorting. And it is specifically the baked potato key that's shorting.
If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking. Better still, unplug it and do not use it.
We would need the model number in order to provide you with free assistance.
It is usually found on a tag located inside the cooking cavity or around the door frame or controller frame.
Since FixYa is still not notifying us when you respond to clarification requests, you will have to post a new help request with your model number and symptoms / questions or contact us here for free assistance.

If you can lift the plastic door latch catches with no resistance, it is most likely the spring/plastic connector. I removed the door by lifting up, pulling the bottom forward, and lowering. I removed the inside black plastic bevel with a jewelers flat screw driver, prying from the latch side's external edge. Once it was started, I could pull it of with a gentle lift. I took out the black plastic latch, drilled a hole near the broken piece and all was good. Samsung is not on my radar for any future purchases. This is the 3rd major purchase that barely made it past warranty or not even thru warranty.
