Customer Question
My Samsung SMH2117S has...

My Samsung SMH2117S has no power. Outlet is good. I replaced the two ceramic fuses and the control board. I also checked the thermostat. It has continuity and 0.4 ohm resistance. I bypassed it and still no power. I'm at a loss.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

SMH2117S is the model on the sticker inside the door. Nothing else but a serial number. Purchased 11/29/2013.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if I can.

no, I purchased a new microwave. I didn't hear from anyone and I couldn't wait any longer so I made the decision to buy new rather than replace random parts. Am I still going to get charged on my credit card? That doesn't seem right.

I understand, thank you. I will send your deposit in for a full refund posthaste!
