Samsung Oven FAQ
Samsung Oven Loses Heat
If you open the door of your oven multiple times, heat will escape. This will make the oven’s temperature drop. So to ensure your food cooks at the right temperature, limit the number of times you open your oven door.

Since your Samsung oven’s vent is at the upper back of the oven, it’s normal for the top of the oven to be hotter than any other area.

It’s normal for your oven to stay hot for a while after turning it off. However, if it doesn’t cool after a long time, the fan motor may be faulty. Read the “Samsung Oven Not Heating Evenly” section to replace your Samsung oven’s fan motor.
