Samsung
Age
6-10 years
Observations:
  • The oven won't light on our Samsung (i.e., the BAKE function does not work)

  • Surface heaters work. BROIL works.

  • When trying to use BAKE, it gives error code E-08.

  • When trying to use BAKE, the ignitor does NOT glow red.

I remember reading if the ignitor doesn't glow, then the issue is probably with the safety valve. But the video linked below states "the safety gas valve rarely fails".

So given the info: how likely is it the ignitor versus the gas valve? If it's 90% chance the ignitor I would do it myself, but I'm not comfortable doing a gas valve.

Also, the gas valve has two outlets, one for BAKE and one for BROIL, right? If so, do they each have their own spring that can fail individually?

Hi,

I remember reading if the ignitor doesn't glow, then the issue is probably with the safety valve.

If the igniter does not glow:
- bad igniter
- no power from the control
- open gas safety valve
- wiring issue
- bad oven temp sensor.

how likely is it the ignitor versus the gas valve?

100 to 1 to be a bad igniter.
Normally power to the igniter and no glow is a bad igniter, no power to the igniter and we must look elsewhere.


Missing a bunch of digits, I found:

FX510BGS/XAA 00
FX510BGS/XAA 01
FX510BGS/XAA 02

Thank you for the reply Jeff:

- open gas safety valve
If the gas safety valve was stuck open, wouldn't I smell gas? Seems like an emergency.

Thank you.

I am assuming to determine if power is flowing to the ignitor I would have to pull out the stove and hook up a multimeter in the back while the stove is on.

That sounds kind of scary, so in the meantime I unplugged the ignitor and hooked it up to my multimeter to measure resistance. I measured 280Ω. Does that give you any valuable info on the odds?

The sticker inside the oven says FX510BGS/XAA with no other digits.

FX510BGS/XAA with nothing else is FX510BGS/XAA 00

If it mechanically stuck open, yes you would.
If it was electrically open the igniter would not glow.

We use to do the electrical voltage test from inside the oven....as long as we could reach.

That more points to the igniter being good and something else may be at fault :(

UPDATE:

Repairman came 2 weeks ago, and of course the stove was working when he was here.

He charged me $129 for the trip, but he said if it fails within 90 days they will come out again and not charge me for labor.

After he left he called me and said he spoke to his manager and they believe a relay on the control board is failing.

So he sent me a quote for a new control board:
  • SODE92-02588D Control Board - $185.10
  • Trip Charge & Assessment - Standard Appliance - $129.00 $0.00
  • Labor, Standard - Special Order - $109.00
  • Shipping - $12.00
  • Total - $306.10
So now it is 2 weeks later and once again the stove is not working.

So my question: is it right to go right into the control board like this? Shouldn't they test it first?

:(

Intermittent issues are the worst....you wish it would just break and stay broken!

Shouldn't they test it first?

Normally yes....but it could check ok and still be intermittently bad :(
