    Well, I opened it up to see what was ging on and it seemed the only problem was that the fan wasn't running.  I pulled the fuse and replaced it with another and it now works.  Only issue is that the fuse I pulled was a 120 volt 18 amp, and the one I replaced it with was a 240 volt 20 amp.  The weird thing is that on the board where the fuse was, it shows both fuse markings, but the 120 volt/18 amp marking is blacked out with marker (which is why I got the other one).  Should I get another 120 volt/18 amp fuse or was that the problem all along (I asssumed the black marker over the writing was identifying not to use that, but I guess it could also mean that was what was used).

I would suspect a problem with the high-voltage inverter.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

why are you cooking rice for 30 minutes in a microwave????? the problem is that a microwave IS NOT A RICE COOKER!!!use a rice cooker or use instant rice and heat the water for 2 1/2 minutes only!! OR BURN DOWN YOUR HOUSE!!

Microwave worked this morning and now not.....made no noise just stopped heating.


HELLO.

The solution is to diagnose the magnetron as explained below.

* 1 Fill a mug with room temperature water from your kitchen sink.

* 2 Place the mug of water on the glass cooking plate inside the microwave.

* 3 Set the microwave on "High" for one minute and press "Start." You should hear the magnetron hum while it is working.

* 4 Remove the mug carefully from the oven by its handle. The magnetron is working properly if the water is hot or warm. The next step repair or a replacement of magnetron if the water is still cold.

Thanks.

We were using the microwave the other night and it started making a loud noise like the fan was running (although the fan was not). We let it sit for awhile and try to use it again but the noise came...


The loud noise and no heat means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails it shorts out, causing the transformer to heat up. That is what was causing the burning smell. The cost of a replacement magnetron is around $130-150 range so it may not make sense to have it fixed.

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can still download it free here.

JVM1540DN1WW leaves food cold


Put in one cup of water at 2 1/2 minutes on high -- it should boil.

The fan slowing down is normal becaue the magnetron, which does the heating and, which pulls about 10 amps, will drop the voltage across the fan and slow it down.

What type of circuit was your old microwave using? Was it a circuit dedicated to the microwave?

No fan noise when cooking.


The internal cooling fan is critical. It comes on automatically whenever the oven is cooking.

If the oven is used without its working properly, the magnetron can be destroyed very quickly.

(This of course is different from the hood vent exhaust fan, which you can turn on and off at will)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

In some models, the motor itself is bad. In other models, it is a bad relay or connection on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair these control panel assemblies for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly (with your model number) for more information & help.

Please contact your home insurance to have the problem logged as a failure of the microwave. The insurance company will most likely help you with the smoke damage to the house and will contact the manufacturer to get their money back... there might be an issue with the manufacturing of these appliances.

Microwave runs, stops and counts down, starts again, etc.


It sounds like its over heating or the magnatron or the Hi voltage transformer. if you open it and start it a fan should be cooling off the magnatron if its not then the fan is bad and thats your problem Worse case is that the power transformers drawing too much current and over heating and shutting down the first problem i explained though I've seen a hundred times. BUT BE very carefull as there is hi voltage inside this puppy and I've seen it grab and throw a grown man across the room!!!! if you know nothing about electrical or electronic devices its best that you leave this repair to a pro. Good Luck
