Very frustrating to use

I hate this microwave with a passion. The black door was designed by someone with no idea about cooking. You can't see in so the bowel, mugs and jugs boil over. It overcooks the edges, but very slow to defrost. I do it for double the weight to get it anywhere near defrosted. Every time I use it, I say never again. I suppose you get what you pay for, and next time I won't buy cheap. I won't buy Samsung either, the quality isn't as good as it once was. Show details

Good microwave but now has a control panel error

Purchased 2015 happy with product does what it needs to do. I'm basically just a 30 zap button person so I have no idea how any of the other functions work. A year ago it came up with SE error on the screen, I was able to turn it off and on and it fixed it. Started again at Xmas doing this my partner managed to somehow fix it. Started SE error again now but unable to fix it. Frustrating as there is nothing else wrong with it. We now have to throw it out. Show details

Dead after 5 years

Pretty disappointed this thing died after 5 years. Used daily but not for big cooks just short reheats. Checked fuse but it wasn't that so it's for the tip Show details

Can’t see a thing!

Works well enough. Not as good nor as quick as my old one.
BUT WHY ON EARTH IS IT BLACK INSIDE?
You can’t see a thing. Very poor usability because of this.
I bought it during lockdown so didn’t see it prior to delivery or I would NOT have purchased it because I can’t see inside, groan.
Can I rip out the black bit on the inside of the door?

Easy to operate

Just bought this microwave replacing a Samsung that lasted 7 years. I cant fault the microwave it worked well and this one I am sure will be the same, so that is why I bought another. The only thing to be aware of is replacing them every 5-7 years. I was amused to see some with 10 year warranties on the cavity of the microwaves, they are not the thing that is going to break down, so that means nothing really, but sounds good. Show details

Worst item I've ever brought

This is the hardest microwave I've ever purchased. Auto reheat over cooks food, Auto heat bacon over cooks it, nothing is straight forward, If I could take it back I would. I might as well use it as a boat anchor. Show details

Disappointed

Very disappointed with the new microwave. It seems to heat food well but I hate not being able to see inside while I'm cooking. I also don't like that the fan keeps running once the heating has ended. I wish I could return it for a refund and buy another one.  Show details

Sensor cook?

Does cook really well, good price, runs quietly,
great size and looks good. However, several issues. Firstly u can't see the food cooking inside because either to door is too dark or the interior light is too dim. So if things r boiling over & making a mess, u won't see it. Secondly, there is no way to decrease the cooking time when it is running. The old Samsung "Timeshare" microwave had a plus/minus 10 seconds button, so u could adjust cooking time, and I really miss this feature. Also, according the guide, the only things that u can use the sensor cook function on are popcorn, a potato or "single entrees".  Show details

Great for reheating and steam cooking

I am visually impaired but by colour coding the start and stop buttons I can reheat drinks and foods effortlessly. Steaming beans, broccoli etc is just a matter of putting them in an oven bag with a little water.  Show details

I have just purchased a Samsung ME6124 Microwave Oven and cannot see anything when it is in use even although the light is on. I found this quite dangerous as I have no idea if anything is boiling over or burning. Is there something wrong with the unit or am I using the oven incorrectly?

Nope not as far as I can tell. I can’t either. Pretty useless haha?

Can you please advise why the light is not coming on during cooking? Is this the design of the product or should I take it back. I would like to see if the food is overcooking or burning.

You should take it back. The light should come on when the microwave is operational.

I've noticed on mine the light comes on but it must have the weakest globe in it that it is really gard to see what you gave in there.
