  1. I’ll never buy a Samsung product again. An oven should last damn near forever and I’m getting error codes and oven noy working at barely 3 years. What trash.

    • Scott,

      I’m sorry to know that you’ve had a bad experience with the Samsung oven. It usually works fine for quite some time, not sure what went wrong with yours. I usually don’t do product reviews but for you, I’ll soon post a top 10 selection of ovens based on extensive user reviews and personal experience.


    • Our power went out for 10 minutes, and when it came back on, our Samsung induction range and fridge were not working. So angry, only two years old! Such junk!!!

      The extended warranty is out of control on the cost!

      • Hi Lisa,

        I’m genuinely sorry to hear about the inconvenience you faced with your Samsung induction range and fridge. Power outages can sometimes cause unexpected issues with electronic appliances, especially if there’s a power surge when the electricity comes back on.

        Given that your appliances are only two years old, it’s understandably frustrating. Here are a few troubleshooting steps you might consider:

        Resetting the Circuit Breaker: Sometimes, the appliances might not turn on because the circuit breaker has tripped. Ensure that the circuit breaker for your kitchen or where the appliances are located is in the ‘ON’ position.

        Checking the Power Cord: Ensure that the power cord is securely plugged into the outlet. It might have become loose during the power outage.

        Power Surge Protection: If you don’t already have one, consider investing in a surge protector for your major appliances. This can help prevent damage from sudden power surges.

        Manufacturer’s Warranty: Even if the extended warranty seems costly, the manufacturer’s warranty might still cover some repairs or replacements. It’s worth checking with Samsung’s customer service.

        Local Technician: If the above steps don’t work, it might be a good idea to get a local technician to take a look. They might be able to identify and fix the issue without the need for a full replacement.

        I understand the frustration with the cost of extended warranties. They can be pricey, but they do offer peace of mind. It’s always a balance between the potential repair/replacement costs and the warranty’s price.

        I hope these suggestions help, and please let me know if you have any other questions or if there’s anything else I can assist with. Remember, every appliance has its quirks, and sometimes a little troubleshooting can go a long way!

        Best regards,
