Samsung Range Error Codes

Samsung Range Error Code: door

The door is not closed. If this code occurs even when the door is closed: Check the door plunger switch. It’s a round, black, plastic cap with a pin sticking out about ¾” when the door is open. It should freely move when pressed with a finger. If the plunger switch does not extend when the door is open, or if it is stiff and cannot be moved with a finger, call Appliance Repair Los Angeles to request service.

If you’ve encountered issues with your oven door, follow these steps to troubleshoot and resolve common problems:

1. Rack Placement Matters:

  • Properly insert the oven racks by pushing them all the way in and ensuring they are on the same rack position on both sides. The same applies to any divider or partition you may have inside the oven.

2. Reattach the Door Correctly:

  • If you’ve recently removed the oven door, make sure to reattach it correctly. Refer to your user manual for precise instructions on how to do this. Pay close attention to the hinges where the door connects to the oven; they should not be in an “unlocked” position, such as extended all the way out or bent up or down.

3. Verify the Door Latch Position:

  • Check the door latch’s position to ensure it engages the door catch at the top of the oven door. If the latch fails to engage, the door will remain in the “locked” position, preventing it from closing properly.

4. Resetting the Door Latch:

  • To reset the door latch correctly, follow these steps:
    • Locate the Child Lock button on your oven’s control panel.
    • Press and hold the Child Lock button for 3 seconds while simultaneously holding down the door plunger switch.
    • The door plunger switch is a small button-like component near the top of the door frame. It is normally pushed in by the door when closed.
    • Apply gentle pressure to the door latch for approximately 20 seconds or until it returns to the normal, open position.
