Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: Samsung oven low flame?
« Last post by scrapiron on August 08, 2017, 03:07:04 PM »
The temp sensor or oven control won't cause a small flame. That model requires the bake and broiler orifices to be changed for conversion to LP. Check the bake orifice for the number stamped on it. Should be 190 for natural and 115 for LP. If the correct orifice is installed and there is no crud in the burner tube, valve or orifice. then it's most likely a bad valve.

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Samsung oven low flame?
« Last post by BobTheBrave on August 08, 2017, 10:58:25 AM »
Working on a Samsung model: NX58H5600SS/AA.  The lady has only had it for 6 months and couldn't get anyone to help her, so she came to me. 

Everything works except the oven doesn't seem to work properly.  Did some digging and looked like the ignitor was the popular culprit.  The one in the oven is lighting, but maybe not getting hot enough from what I could find.  So went ahead and replaced it.  Upon further inspection, It didn't seem like the gas was coming on, but I could smell a hint of gas?  So I took the oven cover off so I could see the flame.  The flame is present along the tube but doesn't have the intensity like the broil option has, which works just fine. 

When the broil kicks on, you get that initial "poof" and a good flame.  With the oven, I didn't get that, so that's why I took the cover off, and sure enough it did light, just seems weak.

Since gas stoves seem to be a pretty simple setup, I'm I right on thinking the wall oven gas valve is causing this issue or should I be looking at the temp senor, even though it responds to the rise in the temperature in the oven?

The machine is clean, with no signs of corrosion anywhere I could see, if that makes a difference.  And it's running on NG, so no fittings have been altered to LP.

Freezer is -10 degrees, possible bad sensor?  Don't know without the display what it's set at.

Manufacturers do not publish the schematics for boards so repairing them is very difficult.

I had to do a major cleaning anyway, so I pulled the fridge out and checked the start capacitor.  It tested good as did the continuity test and the two leads to the compressor had no power when I plugged the fridge in.  I pulled the freezer box apart again and visually inspected or anything out of the ordinary.  All looked good.  I then pulled the JAZZ board and checked the resistance on the defrost thermostat (55.1k ohm) and the two thermistors (8.8 k ohm fridge and 10.3k ohm freezer).  I'm not sure if the fridge is an issue.  I assume that a low resistance reading will tell the JAZZ board that the fridge is warmer than it really is so it might get a little extra cold air for the setting.  We always keep it at 3, so it's not a big deal I assume).

I think this means everything is good except for the controller.  I ordered a used one that's tested good and will cross my fingers.  If it works, is there any way to determine what needs fixing on my original board?  I would guess it's most likely the relays, but I'm not sure what else to test.

bosch ps41. can replace door handles all the way to front load rebuilds. O0 O0

Loved my ps41, unfortunately due to a lack of swimming abilities it died on me :(.  Got the ps 42 which leaves the light on for 30 seconds after your done pulling the trigger and I love it.  also have the I driver for weird spots and things that don't need impacted..   try to find batteries on Craigslist..  I've got about 8 now mostly from people selling the regular driver with the included batteries for around 50$ a set..   which beats the daylights out of 50$ a battery new... (and also now I've got 2 regular drivers ps21s? I think as extra spares.). :)

my guess, since you didn't provide a model number, that you own a samsung built GE. Care to post a model number?
