Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven
I put the time on 25 minutes and cut the microwave on and came back and have no power.
Chances are the thermal cutout / thermal fuse or thermostat on or above the magnetron has failed.
Hopefully it did its job and protected the magnetron from destructive overheating...
