I am going slightly off topic today but I wanted to post this helpful information in case someone else had this same problem.
In early 2012 I went to Lowe’s and purchased new Samsung appliances. One of those appliances was a range. I call it an oven or a stove but apparently it is a “range”.
The model I purchased was a FTQ353IWUX/XAA, although it comes in a few flavors and some people call it a DG47.
Samsung range problem
The burner you use the most will likely be the first to break. My first burner to fail was the front left large burner. I could put the burner on low, medium or high and it just stayed hot no matter what. I mean this burner would get blazing hot, even if I was trying to simmer something.
The first thing I did was unplug the range for a good 5 minutes. Sometimes 240V appliances with electronics need a break or something. That didn’t help.
Next I replaced the heating elements. These were $105/pc. Ouch. That hurt, especially when it didn’t fix he problem. Hey, I am not an appliance repair man.
Then I fixed it!
The problem was the stupid switch.
How To Repair Samsung FTQ353IWUX Oven Burners Running Too Hot
By switch, I mean the knob to control the burners.
To access it, you unplug the machine and take off the rear access panel, which is held on by 5 screws.
Here are the parts. Click the part number to go to my Amazon affiliate link and get the genuine Samsung part via Amazon Prime.
- The FRONT burners (the large burners) use the OUTER control knobs. These are part number DG44-01002A. (dual burner)
- The REAR burners (the small burners) use the INNER control knobs. These are part number DG44-01001A.
If you have time and want to save a few bucks, they’re usually $10 cheaper on eBay.
Here’s a link to the manual on Sears if you need it.
