Question about Samsung Microwave Ovens
The only way to turn if off is to pull the plug. When plugged back in it could be anywhere from 1 to 30 minutes and then "BAKED POTATO" on the display and the oven turns itself on again

If it's the cooling fan inside the main body of the microwave, I would suspect an open thermistor / temperature sensor. If it's the vent fan (for the grille across the top) then I would suspect the hood thermostat is shorted. The oven should have a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) inside, usually in the control panel frame behind the door open button. It shows these parts and how to test them.

We have had problems like this before. Most likely the smartboard is defective.Check with manufacture to see if there is a recall.You should be able to find them on the web.

If you just put the fan blade back on, it will almost certainly fall off again.
The best bet is to slightly rough up the contact area of the shaft with sandpaper and use a little super glue to hold the blade assembly on the shaft, and let it set a few minutes before using it.
I always recommend that you use the hood vent exhaust fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We had the same problem, got Neff service engineer to come out after taking out insurance. He said the megatron cracks which is a large magnet and causes the fuse board to blow and needs to be replaced. This occurs through lack of ventilation on instalation. Total cost £370 may as well get a new one. Plus our insurance wouldn't pay the cost and cancelled the insurance policy.
