Question about Samsung 1.8 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - Stainless-Steel SMH1816S

1 Answer

We have a Samsung SMH1816S Microwave and about a month ago we had a scheduled power outage. Right after we noticed that every time we open the microwave door, the fan runs. It doesn't sound quite right, like it is turning funny. When we microwave something, the fan sounds perfect. It doesn't happen every time, but almost every time. What could be the problem?

Likely an electronic component has failed. It sounds strange, but this sometimes occurs to electronic devices that had been previously working just fine -until it is removed from power. When power is restored, the device fails. This type of behaviour is normally associated with power surges, but it can simply happen to electronic devices that have been in service for a while. Have you ever noticed an incandescent light bulb "blow" when you switch the light on? Unfortunately, the controller circuit board will require replacement, which may not be economical.

Mod SMH1816S Shows SE error only 2 yrs old How to fix


Unless there is grease, moisture, or some other foreign material deposits on your control circuit board, "SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

For the official repair information as per the Samsung bulletin, see http://www.microwavecontrol.com/samsung_se_error.htm

Turns on when door opened


There is an power interlock inside the oven that breaks the power connection to the magnetron when the door is open. Most likely, something is stopping the switch from opening.

Check for a small plastic probe on the door that may have broken off inside the oven keeping the circuit made. Otherwise, open the oven and see is some foreign object is keeping the connection made or if the interlock needs to be cleaned out so it can function.

Repairman just diagnosed mine as a bad display board, it quit working while nobody was even home, and cost $269 with a $70 service fee. The microwave is less than 2 years old and only cost @$400 new. I was lied to by the salesman when I made the purchase (imagine that, a salesman lied to a customer) he told me these were very good and reliable microwaves and that I should get years of service out of it, what a crock... I will never buy another Samsung appliance again, they have many many bad reviews and are made with inferior parts. I will stick with Kenmore kitchen products from now on!!!
