Samsung oven light not working

Samsung oven light not working. The light in your oven is critical for revealing the interior of food as it bakes.

In order to check this critical aspect, one need only remember to check on the condition of the filament within its bulb.

If it’s found to be nonfunctional, then you need to replace it with a functioning light bulb that is appropriate for your oven.

These kinds of bulbs will normally be printed with some information about their recommended maximum operating temperature.

An electric bulb is made to fit into a light socket and the high-intensity current flowing through it can be seen when switched on.

If the socket is faulty, the bulb will not be able to shed light no matter how bright or durable it happens to be.

Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for the Samsung oven light not working.

Error on the control pad

Power fluctuations and surges can cause your oven to malfunction. The easiest way to solve this problem is by resetting it.

Make sure to unplug the appliance completely from its power source but leave it outside of the kitchen for about sixty seconds before you try to wire it back up.

By doing this, you’ll ensure that any possible surge will dissipate so that when you reconnect both the electricity and gas supply, everything should work just as intended.

Problem with light assembly

If the oven light is not working, it is most likely the light bulb that needs to be replaced. The light bulb on its own is usually not available to purchase.

Defective Light Socket

If the light socket isn’t getting power, this indicates that either the light socket or oven light is defective. If the light fixture is killed, replace it.

Light Switch Problem

When troubleshooting a faulty light switch, use your multimeter to test it for continuity. If the apparatus doesn’t pass this test, replace it.

 Faulty Touchpad and Control Panel

The touchpad sets the oven’s temperature. If there’s a problem with the touchpad and control panel assembly, it will keep the main control board from turning on the oven light. However, this is rarely the case.

When troubleshooting failed lights, test the light bulb and socket first to rule out a defective bulb/socket as being at fault. Then test the touchpad and control panel assembly.

Replace Transformer

The appliance being worked at might be having a problem with the transformer that is located inside it.

Firstly, try and check if the light bulb is working or not by seeing if it’s getting switched on or off when you flip the switch.

If it is, check whether the power socket connected to where the transformer is placed in the appliance has any problems such as blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers, etc.

If none of these components are found to be faulty then it must be that we need to consider replacing the problem-causing transformer in order to resolve this issue.

 Fixing a light bulb

To check if a light bulb is working, first, use a multimeter to test for continuity. If the light bulb is working, you’ll get an error message on the meter.

If not, plug your light bulb into another socket to do an identical test. Also, test for the building’s fuse box because having a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker can also cause your lights to stop working.
