Question about Samsung MW1030WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

It keeps starting up on it's own.

It will beep and just turn on by itself with nothing in it and no one touching the buttons. I'm assuming this is dangerous. Should I just get rid of it?

You should keep it unplugged until it is fixed.

You have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you reply back with your brand and model number, we can point you to a part supplier.

If you would like to have us do this job for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly (and include your model number) if you need more help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My GE stainless steel 1100 watt microwave starts beeping out of the blue and the display panel shuts off and when I open the door it resets itself and then starts to beep when I close the door again.


Try removing the power cord for about a minute, push all the touch pad 'buttons' and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work it sounds like you may have a bad door interlock switch or a bad PCM .. Good luck !

Microwave is beeping all the time and can not press anything on the panel if turn it off and on sometimes can chance it and the quick on button will work and will cook ok but then it beeps and again and...


That's almost always a shorted keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

If you need further help, please feel free to contact me directly with your model number and symptoms.

The problem is in one of the door switches, "it is defective" this is a highly dangerous situation and should be checked immediately, the microwave oven should unplugged until a appliance repairman looks at it.

Microwave Model 40180089700 shows "5E"


You have an error code and probably for good reason. maybe a switch is bad to keep out radiation for closing the door or what ever . If you don't know about these things don't mess with them! They are very dangerous and it can radiate you with out you knowing in some instances. Not worth messing with ,too dangerous for the unknown guy!!!!!

The camera is not turning on. The lens is out when it should be inside when its turned off. It keeps beeping when i try to turn it on but it will not switch on.. constantly beeping.


Sounds like you've got a lens error and the beeps are signaling your lens is stuck. With the camera laying on its back, try tapping the lens ring while pressing the start button. You may just luck out. It's about all you can do without taking your camera apart.

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....


Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?
