Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven
My microwave had been humming off and on. Samsung suggested I change the charcoal filters. Did not work Instead now the the humming is constant, nothing heats and after 14 seconds the circuit tripped ! The service center Samsung wants me to go does not want to give ne any appointment soon Can anyone tell me whats going on with my microwave Should I get a new one??????
I would say your magnetron has failed.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
If it's within the one-year time frame, the repairs should be free.
