How do you fix common Samsung Oven error codes?

Published on April 12th, 2022

There are a few common Samsung oven error codes that can occur. These include:

  • E-1: This indicates that the oven sensor is not working properly.
  • E-2: This indicates that the oven temperature is too high.
  • E-3: This indicates that the oven temperature is too low.
  • E-4: This indicates that the door is open while the oven is in use.
  • E-5: This indicates that the oven is not heating properly.

Each of these error codes can be caused by different things. For example, the E-1 error code can be caused by a dirty oven sensor or a faulty sensor. The E-2 error code can be caused by the oven being set to a too high temperature. The E-3 error code can be caused by the oven being set to a too low temperature. The E-4 error code can be caused by the door being opened while the oven is in use. The E-5 error code can be caused by the oven not heating properly.

1. Check the power supply and make sure the oven is plugged in

  1. Verify that the power cord is plugged into an outlet and into the back of the oven.
  2. Verify that the oven is turned on by pressing the power button.
  3. If the oven does not power on, check the power cord for damage and replace it if necessary.
  4. Verify that the oven is connected to the internet.
  5. If the oven is not connected to the internet, try to connect it by following the instructions provided by Samsung.
  6. If the oven still does not power on, check the oven for any physical damage and repair it if necessary.
  7. If the oven still does not power on, check the oven for any software issues and fix them if necessary.

2. Check the door and make sure it is closed properly

  1. Open the oven door.
  2. Check the latch and make sure it is closed properly.
  3. Check the door stop.
  4. Check the door hinge.
  5. Check the door handle.
  6. Check the door seal.
  7. Check the oven door frame.
  8. Check the oven door glass.
  9. Check the door lock.

3. Check the control panel and make sure all the buttons are working properly

  1. Open the Samsung oven's control panel by pressing the "Menu" button and selecting "Settings" from the displayed menu.
  2. Verify that all the oven's buttons are working properly by pressing each button and checking that the oven's LED indicator lights up accordingly. If any of the buttons do not work properly, troubleshoot the issue and fix it as necessary. Then, restart the oven to apply the changes. If the issue still persists, contact Samsung customer service for assistance.

4. Check the heating elements and make sure they are working properly

  1. Turn on the oven and wait until it reaches the desired temperature.
  2. Open the oven door and check to see if the heating elements are on. If they are not on, turn them on by pressing the power button and wait until they light up.
  3. Close the oven door and wait until the oven reaches the desired temperature again.
  4. Check to see if the oven is heating evenly. If it is not, open the oven door and adjust the heating elements until they are.
  5. Check to see if the oven is cooking food correctly. If it is not, fix the issue by adjusting the temperature or by moving the food.

5. Check the thermostat and make sure it is set properly

To check the thermostat on a Samsung oven, open the oven door and look for a dial or button on the front panel. Turn the thermostat to the desired setting. If the oven has a digital display, it will show the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. Close the oven door and wait two minutes for the oven to heat up to the set temperature. If the oven does not heat up to the set temperature, the thermostat may be defective and needs to be replaced.

6. Reset the oven by unplugging it and then plugging it back in

  1. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet.
  2. Unplug the Samsung oven.
  3. Wait at least five seconds and plug the Samsung oven back in.
  4. If the error code disappears, your Samsung oven is reset and should work fine. If the error code is still displayed, follow the troubleshooting steps below.
  5. If the error code persists, contact Samsung customer service.
