Samsung Microwave Oven SMH7159 No Power


The power outage may have been accompanied with a power surge. That can happen with lightning strikes, or if a large inductor (electric motor or equivalent) happened to be on the same power line at the time of the outage. There's a good chance a surge took out the control panel.

Model NE-9970. After a storm-caused power outage, why does the microwave have no power to the control board?


Usually the microwave is plugged into a ground fault protected outlet. Push the buttons on the receptical and power should come on. The ground fault may be above your counter top and protects the plug your microwave is pluffed into.

My microwave is not heating


Are you sure you have power at the outlet? If not check your circut breaker box. You may have a GFI circut. The GFI outlets are very sensitive. They have reset button and test button. If other "non GFI" outlets are on the same cirute they are affected by the GFI outlet. The GFI outlets do fail at times, and need to be replaced. Have you had recent power outage? Sometimes our "smart devices" are too smart.
If you have power, I'd unplug for a few hours and see if that might reset it's "brain" If that doesn't help you may have a panel problem. Owner's manual? Check troubleshooting section. Warranty?, pursue that. Age of microwave? Consider the cost of repair vs. finding a lightly used "working" microwave.

Over range microwave model jvm1650wb008 fan works nothing else does


Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped in the electrical panel, or if it is connected to a ground fault outlet, it may have tripped. Sometimes there is one ground fault outlet serving others in series in the kitchen.

We had a power outage and the display is blinking and there is no response to pressing any button


First, try unplugging the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes and then plugging it back in. Sometimes, a very brief power outage will be sensed by the control as an internal error and the control will lock itself out.

If it continues to blink and does not respond to key presses after this "hard reset", it is likely a portion of the control board could have been damaged from the power outage.

FYI ... the touch panel for this model is no longer available. I mention that because no response from any key press can also denote a shorted key pad.

We had an power outage and lost power for a few hours everything came back on but the microwave. I checked the outlet and checked the fuse still nothing. Is there anything that can be fixed?


Hello if you have no power at the outlet, you may have saved your microwave. If the outlet is dead go to your house electrical panel and reset the breaker or replace the fuse. if the outlet is live and the microwave still won't power on you will have to choose between repair and replacement. Definitely get an estimate before agreeing to a repair as microwaves are very inexpensive today compared to even a couple of years ago.

Microwave has no power


Is the outlet ok? Can you plug somethng else into the outlet to see if the fuse or breaker controlling the outlet is ok? If there is power at the outlet, unplug the unit and remove the outside cover.
Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard. Replace it with the EXACT value of the original fuse. You can purchase a new fuse at Radio Shack or hardware store or auto parts store. Try powering up the unit again and see if it works now or whether the fuse blows again. If it blows again, the power supply may have been damaged. Was this a power outage or surge? Was anything else in your home affected?
