Samsung lp SMH1713 microwave starts on its own, no light, or error, keypad functions but has no effect in stopping it. Is actually heating the chamber and will cook food that is inside


If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

You either have a shorting membrane keypad or there is grease or moisture on the control board.

For free additional DIY help and details, feel free to e-mail me directly from my site. Remind me of your full model number and detailed symptoms.

I was cleaning the outside of the mmv5165ba, after i was done, the sensor control stopped working, after a few times of pressing stop/ clear it was okay, but not all of it is working, thankfully the...


In the future be careful not to use too much liquid in exterior cleaning of the microwave. To recover what has been damaged that depends on the nature of the problem. If you had liquid seep inside the microwave during cleaning the best solution seems to be to unplug and stop using your microwave (to prevent any further shorting or electronic damage to the control panel. Give the microwave at least a couple of days to dry. If you can gently warm the affected area with a heat lamp or regular incandescent bulb of some kind, it may help to evaporate any liquid that remains. Be very careful not to melt anything by getting it too close or getting it too hot.
If this doesn't resolve the problem, it is possible that the control panel has sustained some damage and may need to be replaced... but only as a last resort.

The buttons on my microwave stopped working and it randomly beeps for no reason


You likely have a shorting membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

Microwave blows fuse in microwave mode grill function ok


It is most likely the capacitor has shorted or the rectifier has shorted. Check with ohmeter, but make sure it is discharged first by shorting the capacitor with a wire.

Limited heat power


It sounds like the transformer is shorting out on you but is not completely shorted.It will be shorting out on the output side of the transformer.this will give you a lower output level,and will cause the microwaves to be weaker.(less turns of wire in the secondary of the transformer).The short will probably get worse.Simply replacing the transformer should cure the microwave.

Shorting out


Sounds like the units main elecrtonic control board. You can contact your local parts house for the parts as they should have them or call GE at the #b in the owners manual. I must advise you that there is a very hi voltage inside these microwaves so you must have some know how on working on large appliace and if not PLEASE seek a pro to assit you in this repair. Good Luck
