Question about Samsung Microwave Ovens

Samsung Microwave SMH1816S

When I touch the panel start to begin operation, nothing happens other than the countdown timer working. I open the door, place the food inside, set the time and power level, shut the door, hit the start and all that happens is the time begins it's normal countdown. Inside the oven remains dark and the turntable doesn't move.

How do I turn off the beep on a Fridgedare microwave FFMV164LSA

Unfortunately I don't think turning it off is an option. I always open the door before the countdown timer ends and the incessant beeping begins.

Samsung smh1816s has power, but nothing happens when you try to microwave anything

Did you have checked the magnetron? If this appliance turn on, it is, you said "has power", but not generate microwaves to "cook" any meat you want to cook. I have searched more information on Internet, but not got something about it. If you have some like electric diagram give me the link please or up it to 4shared for try to help you to the solution. I beg your pardon for my poor english. Is not my natal language.


Design Considerations
The basic function and operation of the microwave oven since its invention in the mid 1940's has not changed much at all. Essentially the only major advances in this end equipment that have transpired over the years have been improvements in the user experience. Microcontrollers have helped in this regard as they include more features such as Popcorn, Dinner Plate and Defrost modes. Another rather recent innovation is the ability to measure the steam in the cooking chamber which provides the microcontroller information on cooking time required. As the internal microwave frequency in the magnetron is typically around 2.45 GHz and microwaves are almost as ubiquitous as washing machines, other wireless technologies such as Bluetooth which operate in the same frequency much have the capability to do frequency hopping in case of interference. Along with the traditional 5 V analog and logic commodity devices used in this end equipment, Texas Instruments also provides feature-rich products that integrate relay drivers, zero-volt detection, brown-out detect feature, and 5 V linear regulation that allow for keeping BoM (bill of materials) costs within budget.
5 V Logic and Analog: Texas Instruments provides the largest portfolio in the commodity space that gives designers the flexibility to choose from any logic function needed. Whether it's an AND gate or a single-bit buffer that is needed on the board, TI has it. Likewise, TI offers a wide selection of standard linear devices for regulation (linear regulators), LEDs (LED drivers), signal conditioning (operational amplifiers), etc and are available in industrial temperature range.
Integration: Texas Instruments provides fully-integrated solutions such as the digital signal controllers (for digital motor control, PFC, and other system functions), and relay drivers that provide up to 8 channels, zero-volt detection, and 5 V linear regulation. Aside from the commonly-used 7-bit relay drivers (such as the ULN2003A Darlington arrays) TI also provides the 8-bit TPL9201 or TPL9202 to drive LEDs on the display and triacs that may be used to operate the turntable. These devices also have integrated features that allow for the detection of the zero-volt crossing of the secondary side of the power transformer. Information is fed back to the microcontroller that lets it know when to switch ON/OFF the relays for better long-term reliability of the relays themselves. A brown-out detect feature that provides an early notification in case of a decrease in power supply voltage is available on the TPL9202. These devices also carry an on-chip 5 V linear regulator to power 5 V logic or microcontrollers that may reside on the board.

Microwave won't stop running

there's a ghost in your microwave, call ghost buster. Seriously, the problem is the control panel. (((((the microwave oven can store thousands of volts of electricity in its high voltage capacitor, even after the microwave oven has been unplugged. That's more than 30 wall outlets combined.
Replacing electronic parts in a microwave oven can be extremely dangerous.))))))) tank you

How to replace fuse on the samsung SMH1816s over the range microwave

no problem with fuse - it is due to lose contact on the panel board - open from the front , most probably their will be lugs which may had come out /lose. .

Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978

Operating functions:
To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer button to save the time.
To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button again.
When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer begins counting up.

Microwave not making any sound, or heating. control panel works!

This microwave probably has a serious electrical problem...a defective magnetron or rectifier. It should probably be checked by someone who is familiar with electrical repairs...there can be high voltage inside and a danger of electric shock, even when the oven is off.
