Samsung Range Cooktop Element Troubles
Understanding how your electric or induction cooktop functions in terms of heating and temperature retention is crucial to achieving perfect cooking results. This guide will help you address common concerns related to the temperature behavior of your Samsung cooktop.
In most cases, a cooktop that appears excessively hot is not malfunctioning. To check, start with the cooktop element turned off and at room temperature, then turn it to the lowest setting, usually labeled as “Lo.” While the element may briefly glow bright red, it should not stay visibly red. If it does, visit our Service Centre for professional assistance.
Keep in mind that even on the lowest setting, food can burn if left unattended for too long.
Ceramic cooktops retain heat, and surface elements may not cool down quickly, especially if cookware remains in contact with them. For instance, if you boil water, reduce the temperature, and leave the pot on the burner, the water may continue to boil slowly, potentially resulting in overcooked or burnt food. To cool cookware rapidly, move it to a different, cooler element or remove it from the cooktop.
The Fast Boil feature on electric ranges provides a larger and hotter burner for quicker water boiling. However, because it accommodates more water, it might appear to boil water at a similar rate to a smaller burner with less water. This is normal and indicates that Fast Boil is functioning as intended.
