Samsung microwave ce1031lfb touch panel start not working


If your touch panel is not working, I would recommend replacing the microwave because the cost of purchasing a new panel may cost you more than what you could buy a new microwave. Sorry!

I have a samsung microwave. It has absolutly no vent sucktion. Everthing seems to be functioning as far as the vent turning on and the exhuast flaps ect.


If you are recirculating the air, you should be using a charcoal filter. Those cannot be cleaned, they must be replaced when clogged or damaged.

If you are venting to the outside, check your grease filters and clean them as necessary.

Also check to be sure the outside vent is not blocked or damaged. Sometimes mice or birds will build nests in them and block them.

If any work has been done that could have damaged your duct work, that could interfere with air flow.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help (including filters) here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

Samsung Microwave for over the range vent issue


Most over the range models can be vented to the outside, or they can be set up (sometimes requiring a special adapter) to recirculate with a charcoal filter.

It depends on the model, and you would of course have to consult the installation instructions to be sure.

Samsung otr microwave vent quit working


Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Lights and vent do not work


I have ran into a few of these that shorted out the control board when the light bulb burnt out. Depending on how far you want to go, you can take out the board and look for a burnt spot and possibly repair the board. Or purchase a new board, which may be more than what you want to put into the microwave.

Active vent keeps opening and closing though fan is off.


When the unit begins the never ending opening and closing cycle, turn the vent fan on for a few seconds and then turn the fan off. This seems to stop the active vent from opening and closing. If this is GE quality, this is the last thing that I am going to purchase. GE refrigerators are garbage and now I am having problems with a new microwave oven.

Fan vent door not working


First of all, if it's less than a year old, it will be under warranty and you should contact Samsung to cover the service. You can try the number in your manual or try samsung.com

There is a drive motor that opens and closes the vent fan door. It or an associated switch may have failed.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
