I have a microwave in which i have option only for timer no option for setting temperature how to use it


Unlike a conventional oven, your microwave does not have a provision for setting a specific temperature. There may be only settings for different levels of heating such as high and medium and a special setting for thawing frozen food. The manual for your microwave could be a useful source of information regarding operation.

How to set temperature in Samsung microwave. 160 c means ? watts.


They're totally non-interchangeable as they're two totally different ways of cooking.

There is no correlation at all between a temperature setting used by electric and fan ovens and the microwave power level, there's not even a rule of thumb. For microwave cooking, the fat, sugar and water content of any given food item as well as the mass and shape are what determine cooking times and microwave power levels, and not all foods can be safely microwaved as high fat/sugar content foods may catch fire.

Have you checked the cooling coils to make sure they are clean and air can flow through them? Are the coils in the freezer frozen up? full of ice?? Must have air from from freezer to cool refrigerator.

Hello,

When the refrigerator side is getting too cold this is because the control of the compressor has gone bad in some way...

There a few different things that could cause the unit to lose control over the temperature of the fridge side.

If your refrigerator has a damper door that opens and closes to allow cold air to move to the fridge side the damper linkage or the damper motor may have broken or gone bad.

The coils in your fridge may have frozen over and now the air does not move at all so then the ice builds up and can freeze parts of the fridge side.

The thermostat has gone bad and so now the compressor runs continually. This will not be noticed readily on the freezer side but will show up quickly on the fridge side.

Many newer model refrigerators use an electronic sensor or thermistor to read the temperature and supply the info for the circuit board and often a digital readout.

So, here is how I would go about troubleshooting this problem.

Check the coils for ice, defrost the coils with a heat gun or hairdryer, then check for the reason why they iced over. Defrost control or defrost timer bad? Evaporator fan bad?

Check the damper door to see if it is stuck in the open position. If it is then check the motor and the linkage.

Check to see if the refrigeration unit will shut down if the thermostat or digital setting is turned up to a higher temperature. If it continues to run then find the cause and fix it. It may be a bad thermostat, sensor, or control board.

Sometimes with a change is weather to a cooler climate this will be enough to also affect the inside temperatures. Make sure that a bit of adjustment in the thermostat or setting of the temperature will not solve your problem very simply.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

I want to set the temprature of samsung microwave oven at 121.5 degrees for sterlisation. Is it possible, if yes, how?


It is possible to set the convection oven to attain temperatures of 120, 130, 140 etc.
121.5 is a bit to accurate!
To kill fungal spores any more that 121 degrees celcius will be fine, so set it to 130 and after 10 minutes that should have sterilized the surface of any items inside the cavity.
Maybe aquire a digital temperature as a guage for this purpose?
Hope this helps.

How do you defrost rfa52 polar white fridge freezer?


Switch off the power and place all the contents in a thick bage inside a large cardboard box, to keep it cold. Place a tray to catch the thawed ice in the apropriate place and wait.
When defrosted, wipe the surfaces down with an antibacterial liquid/spray of food grade quality and switch the power back on. Replace the frozen food, after checking the date codes, in the freezer

Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...


If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Microwave power level


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it free from GE/Hotpoint.

Please reply back if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
