Oh, it turns out the the microwave was over heated and the fan was cooling it. The fan will automatically turn on and stay on until your microwave reaches normal temp. just unplug your microwave and let it cool off. then plug it in and everything should be just fine.

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

Wont work


Don't know this particular model, but it sounds like you are just pressing the time buttons for cooking and not actually setting the time clock which is what it's asking for. Are you following the instructions for setting time as detailed in your instruction book?

Start button


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

Fan coming on for no apparent reason


The pushbutton panel is most likely failing, part cost around $60.00 if you want to replace yourself. (It's not that difficult). I'm not sure why, but this type of pushbutton panel (referred to as membrane switches) have been experiencing a high failure rate over the past couple of years. Symptoms include buttons not working at all, intermittent beeping sounds, turning on by themselves etc.

If you need further assistance, let me know
