Question

Why doesn't the vent draw air thru the bottom of the microwave?

Lots of air comes out of the front of the microwave (it is installed without an external duct), but I can't feel any being pulled from the underside of the microwave while cooking. I can't figure out where the air coming out is coming from, as it is a lot more air than it is drawing from the openings on the underside of the unit.

Question

Why does my SMH-1713B unit make a buzzing noise when the door is closed?

I have had this unit for over 1 year with no problems. Today, it started making a buzzing noise whenever the door is closed, even if there is no cooking cycle active. The buzzing stops when the door is opened, and resumes when the door is closed without any other action. Removing power also stops the buzzing (verifying that the microwave was the unit making the noise).

What is the troubleshooting drill for this?

Thanks for the question. The SMH1713S does not actually have a rack, so a rack should not be used in it. If you have another model that did come with a rack, then it's fine to leave the rack in when cooking on only one tier. It's important, however, to make sure that the item on the turntable will not expand and push the rack off of its supports, such as when heating a bag of popcorn. For this reason, it's a good idea to remove the rack when not in use.

Samsung recommends installing the SMH1713 under a cabinet that is at least 30" above the cooktop, so the bottom of the microwave would be about 13-1/2" from the cooking surface. This applies to both electric and gas ranges.

Thanks for the question. You can press the Turntable On/Off button on the control panel to turn the turntable on or off. If it's turned on but doesn't rotate, try removing the tray and roller guide ring, washing them in warm, soapy water, and wiping down the surface of the microwave. If the turntable still won't rotate after replacing the parts and making sure the glass tray is seated correctly, please submit your contact information to our support team through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

I have never owned a microwave hood that would remove all the steam. Even just my regular hood would not catch it all. I have vented it both ways too. Through the roof & back into the room, either way it won't catch it all.

answer 2
There are a few factors that can affect the ability of the 300 cfm vent fan in the SMH1713 to draw odors and steam from the cooktop. In particular, the distance from the cooktop to the vent fan, and the location of the pot under the vent. For example, a pot located immediately under the vent fan will be more effectively exhausted than a pot placed toward the front of the stove. The minimum recommended distance from the cooktop to the cabinet above it is 30", placing the exhaust fan about 13-1/2" above the cooktop. If yours is higher than this, the fan may not be able to draw the steam toward it as effectively.

Please note that, while these instructions apply to all Samsung over the range microwaves, including your SMH1713, it is important to confirm the blower is angled appropriately for your desired venting.

I had this same problem with my microwave from the moment I first plugged it in. After getting an appliance repairman in he quickly identified that the buzzing was coming from a faulty transformer which was vibrating and needed to be replaced. My buzzing was very load. If this sounds similar to your issue then there is a good chance that it is your transformer and it needs to be replaced.
