Re: Samsung over-range microwave does not heat - should I...

How old is it, how mutch did you pay for it, keep in mind everything to toss out creats cheap china reproduction and polution. Don't be the first to complain that we have to do something.

No heat may be cause by serveral problem, bad board, switch, magnetron, power supply, thermistor, fuse, door switch levers, etc...
You can look inside to see if the fuse is ok, second check to see when you start it if the primary voltage at the big transformer is there, if it is there then the problem is after the transformer most likely the mignetron, cap or power board if it has any.
Keep in mind if you nothing about the danger involve don't open the unit.

Samsung over the range microwave oven model# SMK9175ST the microwave part stopped heating

If "everything" works and your microwave just stopped heating, the problem might be with the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board or quite probalby your magnetron is dead. If you don't have the technical knowledge to repair microwaves, you should take it to a repair service for diagnostics.

OTR Samsung Microwave fan comes on with no reason. Any way to fix it?

Does this happen while you are cooking on the range burners under the control panel?? These type microwaves have a heat sensor built into them in the area of the control panel bottom. If the microwave control gets too hot from cooking on the stove below it the heat sensor will turn the fan on to keep the control panel from getting heat damage. The fan should go off after everything cools off.

Microwave starts by itself

Likely a microprocessor/control panel issue. Microwave ovens that sit over ranges often have electronic failures due to heat, humidity, and grease, from the range below, which come into contact with their main circuit boards.

Microwave oven does not heat

When you press start the light and cooling fan are ON but the Microwave Oven is not heating then the magnetron must have failed. If it is out of warranty it is probably better to buy a new microwave oven.

Doesn't heat anything

It sounds like the micro generator has died.

Yes, you should buy a new one as the cost of repair is likely to be high.

Ge profile spacemaker over range microwave not heating

It was probably the Magnatron tube that went out , they are normally replaced only under warr. due to the cost to repair , the part is roughly 200.00 and labor ranges from 100-200. I guess it all depends on what it is worth to you , you can pick a decent brand new one up for about 200. Hope that helped you out. Phil

Not heating properly

I have a GE over the range space saver microwave that was only 18 mos. old when it stopped heating. GE replaced the magnetron for us at no charge but since we did not have a service contract - they charged us $200 to install it. It only cost $375 new installed. Your choice.
