RE: Samsung microwave SMH7187STG mfg'd 5/08. I heated cup of tea 2 min.Then I closed micro's door & micro emitted a continuous electrical buzzing sound.I opened door & buzzing stopped.


The cook relay on your control board is shorted, and the unit is cooking whenever you close the door.

When the magnetron overheats, its thermostat opens, shutting power down until the unit cools to a safe level, then power is restored.

I regularly repair these with my $54.95 service, which includes insured return shipping.

Details are here, or for full information and instructions, please e-mail me here at pupista@gmail.com and remind me of your full model number and symptoms.

Microwave light turns on and vent fan runs when door is closed. It heats fine and functions work fine. It is not heating or counting down when closed, just light and fan.


Hi,
You have a shorted door switch, not a difficult repair. You will need a micro switch and knowledge of microwave repair to replace this switch.
I hope this answered your question

Power on Turn,Turn Table Moves,but don't heat


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms ("no heat"), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Everything appears to be working with our microwave except it is not heating or cooking. All other functions appear to be o.k. I am not 100% sure of the model number and I'm not at my house to get that...

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
