Seems like I've answered this before, but the MR5493G is subject to a recall due to defective keypad (membrane switch) and can be seriously dangerous.


The MR1032BB is also under recall. See:

If neither is covered under the recall, you should be able to order new keypads here:

SOURCE: code for samsung microwave


It would seem that this is an error code, the keypad locked screen shows Samsung 50. Incidentally to my knowledge, there was a recall order for Samsung microwave ovens installed in recreational vehicles including this particular model. These units were produced with a defective membrane panel. These microwave ovens have the one touch instant cook function [NHTSA Recall No. 03E044].

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: samsung otr microwave vent quit working

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can find your nearest Samsung-authorized service center here.

Any microwave over 10 years old is not worth repairing. The touch pad is failing and parts may not be available.

Fuse on a Samsung smh918st

Unplug microwave oven, remove top, go to the keypad control board, follow wires to main circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor, short across the two points with a screwdriver, look for a clipped in fuse near by, pop out and replace with the same current rating.

Touch panel will not work - the only thing I get is a flashing notice across the screen "simply samsung". Thought maybe a fuse blew.

It's very likely that somebody has accidentally set the oven into demo mode; something which is accessed by a secret keypress sequence for display in retail stores.

If you state the exact model number of Samsung oven then I'll try to supply you with a more specific answer.
