Safety Precautions - Samsung SMH1713 Series Service Manual

Hide thumbs


1. Precaution
Follow these special safety precautions . Although the microwave oven is completely safe during ordinary use,
repair work can be extremely hazardous due to possible exposure to microwave radiation, as well as potentially
lethal high voltages and currents .
1-1 Safety precautions (
1. All repairs should be done in accordance with the
procedures described in this manual . This product
complies with Federal Performance Standard 21
2. Microwave emission check should be performed to
prior to servicing if the oven is operative .
3. If the oven operates with the door open :Instruct
the user not to operate the oven and contact
the manufacturer and the center for devices and
radiological health immediately .
4. Notify the Central Service Center if the microwave
leakage exceeds 5 mW/cm2 .
5. Check all grounds .
6. Do not power the MWO from a "2-prong" AC cord .
Be sure that all of the built-in protective devices are
replaced . Restore any missing protective shields .
7. When reinstalling the chassis and its assemblies,
be sure to restore all protective devices, including:
nonmetallic control knobs and compartment covers .
8. Make sure that there are no cabinet openings
through which people --particularly children--might
insert objects and contact dangerous voltages .
Examples: Lamp hole,ventilation slots .
9. Inform the manufacturer of any oven foundto have
emission in excess of 5 mW/cm2 ,Make repairs to
bring the unit into compliance at no cost to owner
and try to determine cause . Instruct owner not to use
oven until it has been brought into compliance .
10. Service technicians should remove their watches
while repairing an MWO .
11. To avoid any possible radiation hazard,replace parts
in accordance with the wiring diagram . Also, use
only the exact replacements for the following parts:
Primary and secondary interlock switches, interlock
monitor switch .
12. If the fuse is blown by the Interlock Monitor Switch:
Replace all of the following at the same time:
Primary, door sensing switch and power relay, as
well as the Interlock Monitor Switch . The correct
adjustment of these switches is described elsewhere
in this manual . Make sure that the fuse has the
correct rating for the particular model being repaired .
13. Design Alteration Warning: Use exact replacement
parts only, i .e .,only those that are specified in
thedrawings and parts lists of this manual . This
is especially important for the Interlock switches,
described above . Never alter or add to the
mechanical or electrical design of the MWO .
Any design changes or additions will void the
manufacturer's warranty . Always unplug the unit's
AC power cord from the AC power source before
attempting to remove or reinstall any component or
assembly .
14. Never defeat any of the B+ voltage interlocks . Do not
apply AC power to the unit (or any of its assemblies)
unless all solid-state heat sinks are correctly
installed .
15. Some semiconductor ("solid state") devices
are easily damaged by static electricity . Such
components are called Electrostatically Sensitive
Devices (ESDs) . Examples include integrated
circuits and field-effect transistors . Immediately
before handling any semiconductor components or
assemblies, drain the electrostatic charge from your
body by touching a known earth ground .
16. Always connect a test instrument's ground lead to
the instrument chassis ground before connecting the
positive lead; always remove the instrument's ground
lead last .
17. When checking the continuity of the witches or
transformer, always make sure that the power is
OFF, and one of the lead wires is disconnected .
18. Components that are critical for safety are indicated
in the circuit diagram by shading,
19. Use replacement components that have the same
ratings, especially for flame resistance and dielectric
strength specifications . A replacement part that does
not have the same safety characteristics as the
original might create shock, fire or other hazards .
NOTE : Connect the oven to a 20A . When
connecting the oven to a 15A,make sure that circuit
breaker can operate .
