What to do when the oven won't heat on your Samsung gas range
First confirm that there’s no problem with your gas supply. If your surface burners are working, then you know your oven should be getting gas as well. If the burners aren’t working, check your gas supply cut-off valve to make sure it's open. If it is open and you’re not getting gas, contact your gas supplier to figure out what’s wrong.
The next thing to check is the oven burner igniter. Pull the bottom panel out of your cold oven. Start the oven and see if the igniter glows. If the igniter glows, you may be convinced it’s working and want to replace the safety gas valve. But the safety gas valve rarely fails. The igniter can glow but not get hot enough to open the safety gas valve. In fact, this problem is the most frequent failure when an oven burner won't ignite even though the igniter is glowing bright. Replacing the igniter in this situation usually fixes the problem.
If the igniter isn't glowing, unplug the range and use a multimeter to check the electrical resistance through the igniter. The meter should measure between 10 and 2,500 ohms through the igniter. If the meter measures no continuity, replace the igniter. Here’s a video showing you how.
Next, check resistance through the safety gas valve. The meter should measure less than 5 ohms of resistance through the safety gas valve. Replace the safety gas valve if the meter measures infinite resistance.
Broken or disconnected wires in the ignition circuit can prevent the oven from heating. Check wires connected to the electronic oven control board, igniter and safety gas valve. Reconnect any loose wires and repair any broken wires. If the ignition circuit wiring is okay, then you may need to replace the electronic oven control board.
How to fix a surface element that isn't heating properly on your Samsung range
A break or flaw in a heating coil can prevent the surface element from heating properly. If a portion of the element doesn’t heat, replace the surface element.
A faulty control switch or failed surface burner relay control board can also cause surface element heating problems. If a surface element heats evenly but you can’t control the temperature using the surface element switch, replace the surface element switch.
