Question about Samsung SMH7174BC Microwave Oven
Both over-the-counter lights will not turn on. Bulbs have both been replaced but no change in status. Also, the fan has three settings (low, high, turbo) but only works on the turbo setting. We think both problems started at the same time.
We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
