Question about Samsung SMH7174BC Microwave Oven
Everything works fine except the cooktop lights, which wont come on at all, and the fan, which only works in Turbo mode. Have replaced the bulbs, but still not change in status.
The vent fan removes steam and other vapors from surface cooking and protects
the microwave from too much heat rising from the cooktop below it. It
automatically turns on if it senses too much heat.
Press the Vent Fan Turbo/Hi/Low/Off button once for turbo fan speed, twice for high fan speed and three times for low fan speed or four times to turn the fan off.
If you have turned the fan on, you may find that you cannot turn it off. The fan will automatically turn off when the internal parts are cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off.
The Vent Fan will operate only in Hi/Low/Off mode while the microwave is working.

If you are comfortable opening the machine, look at the boards for signs of burnt components or cracked or loose solder joints.
As a side note, I recently bought a 1.1 cubic foot 1100W Panasonic microwave oven from Walmart for $80 CAD so good ovens are available for cheap these days. Might be worth it to get a new one with Warranty.
