Built in oven takes hours to reach desired degrees set.
Pt970 model - not heating up to requested degree. I set the oven to 450 degrees at exactly 11am. It is now 1:38pm and the oven is only at 296 degrees. Why does it take so long. This is the 2nd time I am using the oven, I thought the first time would take long as it is new, but 2+ hours and still not at 450 is crazy. Can you help me please?

They never do ! You have to check the temp at where the air comes out of the fan and you need to use a remote electronic thermometer.
the old oven type won't work sitting on a the shelf. 275 degrees at best. Take it back it's not broken ...the just don't work as advertized
If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.
Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.
Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.
The manuals have a safety info, disassembly info, troubleshooting chart, test procedures, part numbers, etc.
I would first suspect a bad thermistor, but it should be checked, as well as the line voltage at the outlet, etc.
