My SMH9207ST Samsung Microwave - when you turn it on the fan will barely run, almost like it doesn't completely come on and then after 3 minutes it turns off which I am sure its from overheating?

SOURCE: NN-T990SA Panasonic Microwave Stopped Heating

This model uses an inverter to produce high voltage instead of a convential transformer system. While an inverter (switched-mode power supply) is more efficient from a power consumption standpoint, it is more complex, thus more statistically prone to fail. These should only be examined and worked on by someone who has the necessary technical qualifications. Seriously. Often the machine-soldered connections in a microwave inverter are too weak, so they eventually fail, especially if heat is high in the area. They sometimes fail catastrophically. When not catastrophically damaged, you may hear clicking or squealing and may smell an electrical odor, which is sometimes obscured by the cooling fan. Some manufacturers do not encourage or assist technicians to repair microwave inverters. Most offer the inverter as a whole assembly. But sometimes that is actually cheaper than the time and labor required to fix the old one. If a technician is willing and able to troubleshoot and repair the inverter to component level, it will may be expensive, but may be worth it, especially if he or she will resolder and reinforce connections as needed as part of a thorough repair. That could easily make your inverter beter than a new one! You might be able to get some verbal estimates if you call Panasonic-authorized repair shops and ask then specifically about inverter repair and inverter replacement costs for your model number.

SOURCE: microwave fan won't turn off

It could be the failure of either the hood fan thermostat or a problem on the control board.

If it turns out to be the control board, we repair those for $39.95 nationwide.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: lights dim when microwave runs.

As long as those lights don't draw too much current, that will probably be okay.

The microwave may consume 1500-2000W (the model number tag or manual will tell you). Add that to the total of the wattage of the lights. Then divide that grand total of watts by 120 (the voltage) and that will give you current in amps that your oven and lamps draw.

Make sure your breaker is rated about 25% above that.

If that holds true, then then I would say your magnetron or high voltage transformer is failing.

If you can post back with your brand and model number I can give you some info on those.

SOURCE: overheated microwave

Hopefully the magnetron thermal cutout or thermostat protected the magnetron from destruction!

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: whirlpool microwave model #MH1140XMQ-1. I needed

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 in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Or if you prefer, you can order a new control circuit board for it here for $140.10 plus shipping. (Just enter the model number as MH1140XMQ-1 without the dash).

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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.

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're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

What does se mean on Samsung over the range microwave model #smh9207st


The SE error code means a key has been depressed for more than 10 seconds. Press the "Clear" button, does it reset and work normally? If not, try completely cycling power to it. If that doesn't work you will probably need to replace the touch pad assembly.

During cooking, the microwave will work for about 3 minutes then completely shut down.There appears to be a complete power failure.After the units sits for about 5 minutes,it resets itself and you can cook...


sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech
