Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven
Our vent door (fan) is not working. could it be a fuse or something easy? It is only 1 year old. Microwave is still heating up and working fine.
First of all, if it's less than a year old, it will be under warranty and you should contact Samsung to cover the service. You can try the number in your manual or try samsung.com
There is a drive motor that opens and closes the vent fan door. It or an associated switch may have failed.
