If it's totally dead, check the main fuse - located inside the cabinet where the power cord enters. If this is the problem, check to make sure the door switches are working properly, and the tension on the fuse holder is sufficient to prevent the fuse from heating up during operation. The fuse holder might have to be replaced. Make sure the unit is unplugged before testing anything, and either discharge the high voltage capacitor, or stay well away from it. 4000 v going through your finger lights it up pretty well, and is very unpleasant!

Samsung microwave oven Model # SMH9151S. Turntable not turning fan inside (not the exhaust fan) is not working either.


It may be a failed relay on the control board, which I repair affordably.

Unplug for about 5 minutes and allow to reset. If the problem persist, you might want to try replacing the control panel (the one that have all the numbers and timers). Good Luck!

Model is GE JVM1430BD002. Microwave works but range fan and lights do not. Unit "popped" when fan was turned on one time and hasn't worked since. Is there a fuse or breaker for the range hood functions?


Yes - there is an internal "special" in-line fuse. Most likely it is the fan that has caused it. Clean the fan with switch-cleaner spray and make sure it is smooth running. Replace special fuse with identical version.
Check lights before operation.
Replace all covers before test.

Goldstar microwave exhaust fan will not turn off


We had this happen to us tonight. We unplugged the microwave oven for 15 seconds and then plugged it in, but it the fan was still running. We then unplugged it for 30 minutes and the fan worked properly when we plugged it in again.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
