Samsung Microwave goes on by itself??

Hi, The original microwave in our '04 25 ft. Safari goes on by itself.

Middle of the night, I hear a noise, and it's the micro. Get up, see it is running with about 1m 40sec to go (probably took me 20 seconds to wake up and get there, so must have started a 2 minute cycle). Turn it off.

45 minutes later, same thing. This time I just push the "pause" button so it stays suspended, and go back to sleep.

Maybe the control panel is going bad? Things only been used about the equivalent of 90 days.

All suggestions appreciated. Thinking I'll just replace it. Could be fire hazard?

Thanks,

Don

Sounds like a short in the control panel... if it overheated it could cause a fire for sure. Time for a new one for sure.

Check the manual and see if it has a function to start cooking at a particular time. If not, best replace it.
