The heating element is like a bulb for the microwave. there is no part number though. actually, what you need to do for that isa manually take it out and brign it to a electronics shop. i do not advise you to do this becuase it is dangerous. have someone who is certified electrician do this.

I have a samsung smh7177ste/be microwave that will not heat. Every thing seems to be working as normal


The problem is one of three things, the magnetron "common issue" or the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, the above mentioned work together to heat food. Depending on the nature of the repair, parts and labor can run as high as a new microwave oven.

Samsung smh7178std won't heat, replaced fuses, connections, tested transformer, tested capasitor,


probably the magnetron could also be the diode on the capaciter. they have a 7 year warranty on the magnetron.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

Samsung MW SMH7178STD Not Heating


I would think it may be a failure of the cook relay on the board, since the noise is quieter.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Sorry i can't help more. This will need troubleshooting.
