The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.

RE: Samsung microwave SMH7187STG mfg'd 5/08. I heated cup of tea 2 min.Then I closed micro's door & micro emitted a continuous electrical buzzing sound.I opened door & buzzing stopped.


The cook relay on your control board is shorted, and the unit is cooking whenever you close the door.

When the magnetron overheats, its thermostat opens, shutting power down until the unit cools to a safe level, then power is restored.

I regularly repair these with my $54.95 service, which includes insured return shipping.

Details are here, or for full information and instructions, please e-mail me here at pupista@gmail.com and remind me of your full model number and symptoms.

During cooking, the microwave will work for about 3 minutes then completely shut down.There appears to be a complete power failure.After the units sits for about 5 minutes,it resets itself and you can cook...


sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech

Works up to about 5 min. then waits about 20 min. to cook again. HELP


When you say shuts off, do you mean it goes dead as if someone unplugged it, or does it stop as if someone hit the Stop pad?

If it is going dead, it sounds like the magnetron is overheating and opening the thermostat.

This can be caused when the internal cooling fan is not running or by a magnetron that is failing.

When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be destroyed.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

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

Oven beepstwice every 10 min.


Looking at the owner's manual, it would seem that the beep is supposed to occur at one minute intervals when cooking is completed. You may need to press the CANCEL pad to make it stop, but I would assume you shouldn't have to. I would assume that when the control panel senses that the door has been opened, it should stop beeping. It sounds like the code in the microprocessor has been corrupted, but only replacement of the chip would fix that. The owner's manual is online at: http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=SS&CttFileID=33043&CDCttType=UM&ModelType=N&ModelName=MW1280STA&VPath=UM/200304/20030418120018750_1_MW1280STA.pdf ( a better URL is http://tinyurl.com/ybpwlm ) You might consider calling Samsung support at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864) Mon-Sun: 9am-9pm (EST). Good luck.
