Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Hi there, I've just moved into a new apartment and the microwave model is Samsung Timesaver M1630N. It was working fine yesterday, but I noticed that it was beeping at odd times for no reason. I switched off the power plug to stop the beeping. Today, I tried microwaving something but the buttons did not respond at all, and it was beeping non stop, again for no reason. The light still works, so I'm just wondering what could be wrong. Is there anyway I can reset or solve this? Thanks!

Hi, well, this microwave is beeping to tell you that it has had a component failure, and to "Get it serviced". What has most likely happened, and is the commonest occurrence in my shop, is that the Magnetron and/or the High Voltage Diode have "Blown". This is usually due to age or power spike and surges.
MW are one device, imho, that MUST be serviced by a professional, (MW's kill more servicemen a year than any other single thing!) So it is my professional advise is to contact a Samsung local or head office, and ask them for a referral to an authorised servicing center. Now, when there, FIRST only ask for a "Quote" as to the cost and type of repairs involved.
This way you can first make an informed decision as to repair or replace. i say this as many, many, clients of mine, these days, prefer to put any monies that may have been spent on repair, be put towards a NEW unit, with a full warranty. Further, new research has shown too, that repaired units will always fail again in average within 12 - 18 month after repair.. So?

Message on samsung timesaver microwave 1000w 5E what does this mean?


The code indicates a possible shorted membrane switch. Unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes to see if the code clears. If not, you might actually have a shorted switch.

I have a Timesaver 1000w Samsung microwave. Just started to get error messages of p2 and p1 as I have lost the manual a long time ago could you explain what these codes mean.


There are no user serviceable part on a microwave and the screws holding the case are security screws. You are better off taking it for service.

There are fault codes here, but no P codes.

Samsung timesaver microwave


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Possible that the belt has failed, the motor has failed or the fault is the drive in the board. You need to start by checking the belt and motor.

Hi there, I've just moved into a new apartment and the Samsung Timesaver microwave seemed to be working fine yesterday, but it has been beeping at odd times for no reason. I turned the power off to stop...


Hi, this is usually a bad touchpad. The way to tell for sure is to kill power to the unit, take the control panel down and unplug the ribbon connector that connects touchpanel to the clock. Put it back together and reapply power. The clock will just sit there blinking and, obviously, the buttons won't work, either. if the beeping stops, then the touch panel is bad. And If it still beeps, then you have a bad clock.
