Samsung microwave turns on by itself

Sir: I have a Samsung microwave, model # MW1430WA. Of recent, the microwave has started turning on by itself. I see you mentioned that this problem is caused by a failed keypad. Please tell me how I can get this replacement part for this microwave. Thanks for any help.

Microwave starts by itself


Likely a microprocessor/control panel issue. Microwave ovens that sit over ranges often have electronic failures due to heat, humidity, and grease, from the range below, which come into contact with their main circuit boards.

I just turned on the microwave (samsung) and it started for a second then turned itself off and now it is doing nothing.....


HELLO.

This is the step by step solution.

Check if there is live power on the outlet.

Make sure the microwave plug is fixed properly on the outlet.

If the problem is not solved,then change the fuse placed behind the microwave that is used to control power suppl to the microwave.

Thanks.

Samsung microwave MW1430WA often refuses to respond to any control buttons. Sometimes it shows ''ON'', sometimes ''OFF'' and on these occasions will often restore Time by pressing ''Pause/Cancel'',...


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 please do not leave it running unattended.

You have a failing membrane keypad.

On some models, you have to peel off the old one and replace it.

On some models, you remove your controller and move your circuit board into a new frame with a keypad already installed.

FixYa is not currently notifying us when Clarification Requests are answered, so please contact me directly with your full model number from the tag on / in the unit and color so we can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

Samsung microwave


I have a Samsung model 1032BB in my R.V. Starts up all by itself and then I can't turn it off/on; have to unplug it. Should I have it repaired or should I replace it?

UPDATE: GE Spacemaker XL1800 Microwave


JVM1850BD002 is a correct model number. This is a GE made by Samsung. It sounds like the motor or coupler is bad. More likely the motor. If you grab the motor shaft and try to gently turn it, it may grind or slip a lot. That's a sign of a bad motor. If the coupler is bad, it will be cracked or broken, causing it to slip on the motor shaft or the turntable itself. The coupler is reference 40, and the motor is reference 43 on this handy exploded view drawing: http://genet.geappliances.com/IPCNet/Dispatcher?REQUEST=IPCNETGETPDF&file=00000000/00016500/00016593.p01.pdf (copy & paste whole URL) Here is the GE part price info on these two parts: DESCRIPTION DRAWING PART NO. PRICE MOTOR-SYNCHRONOUS 43 WB26X10038 $46.00 COUPLER 40 WB06X10144 $8.75 If the motor is bad, you might be able to find the Samsung part number printed on the motor label and look it up at http://www.samsungparts.com They often have parts for far less than the expensive GE parts.
