Samsung Microwave Fault Codes

An error code on your microwave usually means a technician is going to need to take a look at it. However, it could just be that you need to cycle the power on and off and see if the error returns. And if you're wondering what the code on your microwave means, the list below should help.

To try to clear an error code, unplug the microwave or turn it off at the circuit breaker for 60 seconds. If it's possible that moisture in the microwave's electronics may be causing the error, give the microwave some time to dry.
