Hi I have a Samsung SMH9187 micowave that is dead (no display, light, fan, mirowave).


Sounds like the main fuse blew. It's either near where the power cord enters the cabinet, or behind the control panel (if an over the range unit).

You may also have some type of failure in the high voltage circuit; based on your description of the symptoms.

WMH31017AB does not turn on


If it's totally dead, check the main fuse - located inside the cabinet where the power cord enters. If this is the problem, check to make sure the door switches are working properly, and the tension on the fuse holder is sufficient to prevent the fuse from heating up during operation. The fuse holder might have to be replaced. Make sure the unit is unplugged before testing anything, and either discharge the high voltage capacitor, or stay well away from it. 4000 v going through your finger lights it up pretty well, and is very unpleasant!

Got switched off suddenly and all panel lights got off


The main fuse is inside the cabinet near where the power cord enters. When everything goes dead all of a sudden, 99.9% of the time it's the fuse.

There's need to remove the oven from the wall to check and replace the fuse.

Just see the video here to show you how to remove the grille and controller assembly.

The fuse is located between the door switches.

If the fuse blows again as soon as you press "Start" to begin cooking, then you likely have a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Look into the connector and see the point of contact which is visible of the metal contacts. Now the carbon tracks must be on the side of the metal contacts of the connector. In this case it is possible that while you pulled out the flexible stip cord there is damage on the strip , can be that the carbon tracks were damaged and so it does not contact. if so use a carbon track pen to line the tracks so as to contact.
Reversing the cord will not do any damage as there will not be any contact.
finally make sure that the PCB( printed circuit board) was washed with petrol and brushed properly and then DRIED before the unit was powered or else it can damage the processor.
Check the connection leads that were removed and make sure that it went to the correct postion.
Sometimes the touch pads refuse to work once it is disturbed as it might get damaged in the carbon tracks within.

The microwave stopped working. It will not turn on and the outlet is functional


If it is completely dead, meaning, that the display, keypad, oven light does not work. The problem is most likely that the line fuse is blown. Remove the cabinet screws and remove the cabinet. The fuse should be close to either the power cord or the electrical circuit board. Replace with the same type of fuse.

No display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G


The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.
