Samsung Range Keeps Tripping — Causes And Solutions
There are multiple possible reasons why your Samsung range keeps tripping the breaker. We have listed each one below and what to do about them.
1. Terminal Block
If the terminal block at the rear of your oven isn’t properly tightened to the power cable, it will keep tripping the breaker. Follow these steps to check if your oven’s power cord is properly tightened to the terminal block…
Step 1: Pull the oven away from the wall and unplug the power cord.
Step 2: Remove the Philips head screws which hold the oven’s lower rear panel in place.
Step 3: Lift the panel off and set it aside.
Step 4: At the bottom of the oven, you will see the terminal block with the power cord screwed to it. Check if the screws are tightened. If they are loose, tighten them.
Step 5: If there are burn marks on the terminal block take out the screws which secure the power cord to it.
Step 6: Remove the screws which secure the terminal block to the oven and disconnect the wires.
Step 7: Get a new terminal block and screw it into place.
Step 8: Reconnect the wires to the right terminals.
Step 9: Screw the power cord back to the terminal block.
Step 10: Reposition the oven’s panel and secure with the screws.
Step 11: Plug the oven back in and push it to the wall.
2. Overloaded Circuit Breaker
If your Samsung range keeps tripping, it may be because it requires more power than your circuit breaker can give. Call an electrician to measure the oven’s power load. If the load is too much for the breaker, it will need to be upgraded.

3. Multiple Appliances Connected To The Same Circuit
If multiple appliances in your home are connected to the same circuit breaker, your oven will keep tripping. Try unplugging two or three appliances and try the oven again. If the oven doesn’t trip, this is the problem. Whenever you need to use your oven, unplug a few appliances to stop it from tripping. If you don’t want to do this, call an electrician to upgrade the circuit breaker.
4. Damaged Circuit Breaker
If your circuit breaker is faulty or the wires are damaged, the appliances connected to it will trip. Call an electrician to determine if this is the case.
5. Faulty Oven Components
If your Samsung range keeps tripping and there isn’t anything wrong with the breaker, some of the oven’s components may be faulty. Do not try fixing this problem yourself. Instead, call a technician to identify and fix the problem.
