Samsung Oven Is Cutting Out — Causes & Solutions
If your Samsung oven is cutting out, there is more than one possible reason. We have listed each one below and how to fix them.

3. Temperature Sensor
A temperature sensor regulates an oven’s temperature sensor to make sure it doesn’t overheat. When an oven overheats, it shuts off. So, if your Samsung oven is cutting out, it may be because the temperature sensor is faulty. Follow the steps below to replace the temperature sensor of a Samsung oven…
Step 1: Switch off your oven’s circuit breaker.
Step 2: Open the oven door.
Step 3: Slide out the oven racks.
Step 4: Flip the locks on the door hinges forward using a flat head screwdriver.
Step 5: Lift the door off and set it on a towel lined surface.
Step 6: Take out the two screws which secure the temperature sensor to the back wall of the oven. If the screws come out easily take out the sensor and test with a multimeter. Replace the sensor if it’s faulty. If the screws don’t come out, take out the two screws on the oven’s back wall which secure the broil element.
Step 7: Remove the other two screws at the top of the oven which also secure the broil element.

Step 17: Test the sensor using a multimeter. If the reading is far higher or lower than 1080 ohms, the sensor is faulty.
Step 18: Get a new sensor and position it on the broil element.
Step 19: Reposition the broil element in the oven.
