About - Samsung FE710DRS

The Samsung FE710DRS is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the FE710DRS are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
Stove top works fine. <br />Convection Ovens cannot hold temperature. <br />So you cannot bake, roast or cook anything.<br /><br />After 3 months, 4 service calls and replacing every electric component the technician can, the unit still does not hold temperature. Not a little off, way off. Set for 425. Unit comes to temp and beeps at 425. This temperature matches the thermometer I put in the unit to track temperature. After 20 min the temp is 375. after 40 min the temp is 275.The fan runs all the time. The heating element relay clicks on and off for 5 sec every 30 sec. I was told this is normal. <br /><br />There is no +5 degree button, so you have to turn the oven off and then just restart the oven at 425. Oven reports starting temperature as 275 and then heats from 275 till it gets to 425. But the way it heats is in it's preheat mode, so the broiler turns on and torches the food in the oven. <br /><br />Same thing happens at 350. <br /><br />Useless oven. Too bad. Pushing Samsung for a refund.

Not What It's Cooked Up to Be!

Comment:
Be ware of the this particular model stove no one will tell consumers the design has a glitch in between tempered glass door. Just after 3months of using stove noticed discoloration of spots building up in between tempered glass which Samsung has awareness & not covered under warranty. To have resolve consumers are referred to outsourced company's whom charge over $400 to remove glass and clean in between. Downside is the accumulation of build up will occur again over usage. This model most definitely should have a recall because Samsung is very aware of the default in this model. Highly unacceptable for costly purchase price.

Comment:
I have had this oven 13 mos. The oven quit heating after 6 mos. The repair took over a month with several techs back and forth that seemed incompetent. Now 6 mos on and it quit heating again. Just placed another call! How long will this one take?? I researched and pondered and went to the store for weeks before deciding on this unit. Do yourself a favor. Look elsewhere.
