Samsung Microwave Oven SMH7159 No Power

The power outage may have been accompanied with a power surge. That can happen with lightning strikes, or if a large inductor (electric motor or equivalent) happened to be on the same power line at the time of the outage. There's a good chance a surge took out the control panel.

Control panel is not responding

Most likely, if power *is getting to the unit*, (there are lights lit on the washer), then the culprit will be a shorted user interface board(control panel). This is a fairly common type of issue with dishwashers. The soft-touch buttons or the touch panel has a shorted button or area(depending on the type you have) and nothing else will function because the unit thinks you're still pressing a control button. Also, a VERY common cause of this issue, aside from moisture or bugs, is a power outage damaging the console when power is restored due to a surge. After an outage where damage occurs, the symptoms don't usually start for about 3-4 weeks after due to damaged chips on the board starting to fail.

Display on control panel no longer displays.

Surge associated with power outage can make disasters in refrigerators. You need a power protector for refrigerators.
Now, what already is damaged, should be repaired by an authorized techician.
For protector, you can do a search; typical return is this one

Power outage and fridge doesnt come back on when power is restored

First make sure there is power to the plug at the wall. If not check the breaker. If power at the plug, the power outage could have been associated with a power surge that killed your refrig.

Wolf ovens getting err message after power outage

I had a Wolf 30F wall oven with a similar problem
after power outage. It wouldnt stop beeping with error message related
to temperature control. My solution was to turn power of at circuit
panel, then reset by pressing and holding the clear button for 5

Also note: in my case I had to close the display
before switching the panel off. When I tried to the reset process with
the panel showing, it wouldn\'t reset.

To reset other
various parts of the control panel Instructions said:

Time-of-Day Clock

Immediately after the oven is installed, set
the 12-hour clock to the current time of day. It may need to be reset
after a prolonged power failure. The clock is visible on the control
panel during all modes. If the upper oven timer is set, the clock will
not be visible in the upper oven control panel display.


1) Touch CLOCK.

2) Touch number pads to
set current time of day.

3) Touch CLOCK or ENTER to start


The time-of-day clock can be
changed from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. After the clock has
been set, touch TEMPERATURE for three seconds, touch CLOCK, and then
touch ENTER. Follow the same sequence to change back to the standard
12-hour clock setting.

Fahrenheit to Celsius

oven can be changed from Fahrenheit (°F) temperature to Celsius

How do I set in Automatic mode, seems to only work manually since loss of power?

1) Power outage is major cause of timer failure. Power surge occurs when power is restored, and electronics are susceptible to surge. This includes water softerer, treadmill, electronic water heater, timers, etc.
Timers should be unplugged when power goes off.
Of all timers on market today, only one instruction manual says to unplug timer with power loss. However many people write fixya saying their timer, and electronic water heater control etc stopped functioning after power loss. Probably other products have same problem, but I work with timers and water heaters and see only that slice of the world.

2) Question posted under Woods 59377.
Several timers look identical or similar.
59377 timer has non-replaceable rechargeable battery, some similar timers have AA battery.
If timer has battery, change battery.
Then reset timer to restore functionality. Press reset button for a few seconds with paper clip.

3) If timer function does not restore after reset, then timer is bad.
Buy similar timer at Lowes or Target, and return defective timer in new package.

4) If function is restored, then re-program timer
Open following link for timer instructions showing how to reset timer and re-program timer:

Water inside tank-type water heater can remain hot for some time.
That's one advantage of well-insulated tank-type water heaters.

Power outage can be related to failure of gas control.
Unplug stuff when power goes out. And then plug back in after power is restored.
Water heaters with electronics are not protected from surge.
Electronics can blow out during and after power outage. For example nearby lightning strike will cause current to run along household wires. With ordinary power outage, once power is restored, the surge can affect all kinds of electronic circuitry such as timers, water heaters, water softener, treadmill etc.

Control panel not working Samsung refrigerator model rs2533sw. Not cooling.

I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9) will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!
