I’m Melting! I’m Melting!

September 23, 2022

On Tuesday (September 20), the Samsung repairman came out to fix the problem with the convection microwave oven. (https://retirementrvdream.com/2022/09/17/update-on-convection-microwave-oven-problem/)

He replaced the connector to the wire that had melted and started burning.

Bruce got the convection microwave oven back in place with a little help from me.

On Wednesday (September 21), I was excited to use the convection oven part of the unit.

I made lemony biscuits for breakfast using the convection oven setting. It worked beautifully and I was delighted!

Later that afternoon, Bruce noticed the the clock was out on the convection microwave oven. He asked me if I had done anything. My answer was no. Bruce unplug the unit, plugged it back in and rest the clock.

Bruce thought maybe the unit hadn’t been plugged in correctly.

The next morning (September 22), Bruce noticed the clock was out again. When he opened the unit’s door and then closed it, he would get a light flash from the unit’s underneath lighting. The clock would come on and then flash off.

Bruce thought maybe the wiring to the plug was having problems.

Today (September 23), he took the unit down and removed the cover. I looked inside with Bruce and said, “Melty, melty!” Bruce found that very funny and started laughing.

The wire connector that had been replaced had melted again. Bruce took a picture and texted to the repairman.

Bruce got a reply back saying the repairman would let Samsung know and get another visit scheduled.

Connector Melted
Melty, Melty

This is a scary fire hazard and I hope it can be properly fixed next time.

The convention microwave oven is taking up a lot of my counter space that is normally available.
