You simply remove the two screw at the top front edge of the oven, then the grille will lift and and/or out.

SOURCE: Could you please explain how

It is a threaded cutting blade. So the screw is the reverse thread from the way that the cutters turn. You are going to have to keep the s/s from spinning and unscrew the other way. Just be careful as those blades are very shape but also very fragile. So you want to make sure that when you are holding the s/s blades from spinning you are not doing metal on metal contact. I recommend a piece of wood with a town wrapped around it.

I have this exact model with the same issue. I am a technician by trade on office equipment. I took the cover off where the door latches go in and there are 3 relay switches behind there. I adjusted the switches so the door latch would make better contact with them.

Smh9187w vent fan popping noise

There are no bulletins covering a recurring issue with the exhaust fan on this model, so I would suspect the failing motor, an obstruction in the blades, a loose blade assembly, or a damaged wire arcing to the frame.

It will take some visual inspection with the oven removed from the wall (see your installation instructions) and the cover removed.

The service manuals for the variants are here:

You can order Samsung parts from the Pros here or from Encompass here.

I havent used this microwave before. Can you please give me step by instructions on how to cook a roast beef and vegetables

If this microwave is a convection oven, you don't give make or model, treat as a fan assisted oven. 20 minutes per pound and 20 minutes extra for the meat, veg is best microwaved for a few minutes except potatoes, put them in the dish with the meat. Cover to stop splashing and set temperature to 190 Celcius 370 in proper temperature.
I am getting hungry now!

The exhaust fan is not working. When you turn it

If it is running but running slow you may be able to save the fan motor that you have. I am assuming this is a counter top microwave.

First off... make that dreaded trip to your nearest appliance parts supply and buy a "Zoom Spout" oilier (Usually under $3.00)

Next (unit un-plugged) remove the 6 screws in the back of chassis cover and the 4 screws on the side.
Begin lifting the cover up to about 15 deg and pull toward the rear of the microwave so the cover unlatches. Once unlatched lift off the cover.


Use a flat bladed screwdriver that your holding way back on the handle and ground the large capacitor at least 3 times across both terminals. It may make a POP but not to worry... that is normal and your making the unit safe to work around.

Now get a paper towel and lift the fan blade with your hand gently until it just lifts briefly. Wipe off the dirt from the fan motor shaft. Underneath the fan motor use a Q tip to remove the dirt from the armature shaft.

Pull the tube out about 3 inches from the Zoom Spout Oiler (under the red cap) Lubricate the fan motor bearings upper and lower from above the bearing. It is ok to over oil just make sure you spin the fan blade by hand then lift the fan blade up and down... use the paper towel to clean up the dirt. Re-oil again to flush dirt. repeat the lifting up and down of the fan blade (full travel 1/8" or less) and wipe once again. Once your sure the bearing mating surfaces are clean and the excess oil has been cleaned up test the microwave with the cover off. Just be advised the HV capacitor is now recharged so avoid reaching into any area where there are exposed contacts. It can really ruin your day.
After your sure the fan is at full speed then re-install the cover assy by holding it over the unit with the rear elevated at a 15 deg angle... Ease the cover forward guiding the side locking tabs into the front of the chassis. Lower the cover and install all 10 screws. 4 on the side and 6 on the back.

That should do it. If not the only other option is fan motor replacement. If you determine that you need a fan motor respond with the model number and I can assist you in finding the replacement parts on-line or ;the part number so you can buy it locally at an appliance parts supply source.

Thanks for using FixYa.
