Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Microwave was run empty and now it won't run. Display works but no fan or microwave. What to do?

    The magnetron does not fair well when running empty, the thermal fuse usually kicks in if a metal object was put in by mistake, but should be checked along with the door switches.

    ?E - 5" message

    From Samsung's FAQs:

    "Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven. If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.

    "Other microwaves do not give specific error messages and just display "8888" on the LED. If you get this error message, your microwave needs service.

    "If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.

    "For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locator to find your nearest Authorized Service Center."

    Or instead let us know if we can help further.

    It may be bad electrolytic capacitors on the control board, but I would need your model number

    Display only shows 8888 - display buttons do not work.

    try a reset. unplug for 10 mins, plug it back, see if it will work.

    if not , open the housing, see a ribbon cable from the touch pad to the main pc board. remove the ribbon cable for 1 min. re install it back and test the unit.

    be sure to return all cover and screws of the unit before plugging it back. microwaves are hazardous to your health.

    We have a 1986 montgomery ward microwave that the cotrol panel will only display 8888. It appears to be locked.

    You can try resetting the micorwave by unplugging it, waiting awhile then plugging it back in. However, considering it's age. It is probably worn out and repair would cost much more than a new mupdated microwave. They are very reasonable in price now.
