    Default Samsung FX710BGS/XAA Oven not heating up

    Model Number: FX710BGS/XAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a Samsung FX710BGS/XAA. The oven stopped heating up when turned on. The igniter glows but it doesn't start. After looking at this forum, I tried turning on a burner while starting the oven and it didn't seem to work the first time (I was expecting to hear a wosh of gas) but it did work the second time after I left it for on for a few minutes. I tried relighting the oven later in the evening all by itself and this time it worked. My wife told me that once time when it wouldn't light, there was an error code E-8. According to the manual that means I need to re-boot the oven. I'll try that and see if it corrects the problem long term. I've also searched this forum and found suggestions that it could be a weak igniter or possibly the gas valve assembly. If I need to buy a part, I want to make sure I don't buy an expensive part that's not necessary. Maybe the restarting (un-plug, re-plug) works or maybe it's a shout term solution. Where should I start so I can make sure I have an oven to use when I need it. Thanks. This forum has been a goldmine of info for all of my appliance repairs over the years.

    Hi Scott,

    You'll need to check the amps first from either of the two oven igniter wires.

    Amperage range is 3.3 - 3.6 amps. You will need a Clamp style amp meter to check the amps when its ON and GLOWING.

    If the Amps are lower than 3.3 amps when its ON and GLOWING, then your oven igniter is weak and will need to be replaced.

    Here's the oven igniter for your model:
    DG94-00520A Assy-Hot Surface Igniter

    Thanks Jake. I'll give that a test. I'm assuming that if I don't get that amperage, I'll repost to figure out what else I'd be looking for. Appreciate your response on a Sunday/Holiday.
