How do I set my Samsung microwave Power Setting?

My Samsung microwave has a ''power level'' button that has increments of 10 to 100, I can press the button to move it in these increments, but when I put in the time, it just runs on High setting again.
Any help is appreciated.

    The
    first thing I would suggest is a hard
    reset. Unplug the unit for a
    minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If that doesn't work,
    leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.
    It may be a shorted relay on the control board What is your full model number from the tag on / in the unit?

SOURCE: Changing Power level on Westinghouse microwave

If it won't cook at the lower power level then it probably has a stuck relay on the control panel circuit board.

If it were cooking at a low power level, it would be on full power for several seconds, then when the relay opens to turn off cooking, the light gets a bit brighter, and the sound is a bit less.

Then after a few seconds you would hear the relay click on, and a little more buzzing when the magnetron energizes.

Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it free from GE/Hotpoint.

Please reply back if you need more help.

How do you set the power level


If you have a power level button---press it and then enter 1-0 for 10. Most microwaves automatically come on at power level 10 or Hi power unless you pick a different option like the defrost button which is usually power level 3.

You can either choose to select the SET levels for the heat which can be a direct button or you can select the power button and scroll up or down the settings. Also the weight of the food must be chosen to be effective for the heat.

How do you set the power level? The model number is: JVM1730DM1WW The serial number is: MM901698B


Assuming your touch pad is working properly, press Time Cook (for cooking) or Time Defrost (for defrosting) and then type in the length of time that you want the microwave to operate. Then press Power Level and type in a number from 1-10. Finally press Start. Depending on the GE microwave, the Power Level button may be above 2 or to the left of 0. (I've seen both keypad designs depending on when and where the microwave was manufactured.) If you press Power Level before setting the cooking time, the unit will reset when you press Time Cook or Time Defrost.

GE has the manuals for some of their microwaves on their site. See http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model number in the search engine.

I hope this helps.

Power level again


It is probably a 700 watt model. Most ovens have 10 power levels, ranging from 10% to 100%. Normally you press POWER LEVEL, then press 1 for 10%, 2 for 20%, etc., then press START or COOK to cook. We could not find exact information on this model.

Power


You can download some models' owner's manuals here: http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/index.aspx But the attached diagram shows how power levels are categorized or rated. When you want to cook at a power level other than high, you normally hit POWER then a number from 1-0. On some models you press POWER repeatedly until it shows the power level you want.
