What does it mean when your Samsung flat top oven and broiler will not work and the code reads E-08


E08 Error Message on a Samsung Electric Built-in Oven:

The E08 preheating error code appears if the set oven temperature is not reached within 50 minutes. If this code appears, the reason might be due to overheated thermostats, a defective heater or a defective relay; in which case a repair will need to be arranged.
However, if food has been put into the oven during the preheating time that may cause the error code, since the presence of food cools the oven and so it doesn't reach the right temperature. The error message can be removed by turning the oven off and turning it on again.
To prevent this error code from happening again, the oven should not be used during the preheating period. The preheating period ends just after the sound signal and the icon in the display have turned off. When the oven gives the signal, it's close to the set temperature and your food can be put in.

Does not heat up. When lid is closed with all burners on it only heats to 250*


Either the grill's thermometer is faulty or the grill's regulator is partially locked up. Let's a dress the latter, first.

1. Turn the gas grill tank's valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank & wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to High. Does
the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way. Do all the
flame heights look correct? If so, you may have solved the problem. Close the grill's hood and
allow it to preheat for at least 20 minutes. If the temperature goes above 250 degrees F, the
problem is solved.

If the above didn't solve the problem, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer, that would usually set on an oven rack. Except, you're going to place it on the grill's cooking grates. Preheat the grill with the hood closed for 20 minutes, then check the grill thermometer. After which, open the hood and look at the oven thermometer. If they read the same, then you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. If the Oven thermometer reads significantly hotter, then it's a faulty grill thermometer. You can either replace it, or just continue to use the oven thermometer, like I do.

If you need to replace the Hose/regulator Assembly, you can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know & Happy Grilling!!

Grill will only heat up to about 400


Generally, there are 2 things that can cause the problem.

1. The grill thermometer is no longer accurate. To test this, purchase an regular Oven Thermometer for about $6.00, that would normally set on the oven shelf. In this case, it's going to set on the grill grates, when you preheat the grill with the lid/hood closed. Allow it to preheat on High for 15 - 20 minutes. Look at the grill thermometer and then compare it to the oven thermometer. I'll bet, the oven thermometer will be significantly higher, if the grill thermometer is faulty.

2. If you recently turned the gas tank's valve OFF and then turned it back ON later. the grill's gas regulator is partially closed. And the burner flames are not as high as they should be. To solve this problem do the following.

A. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
B. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
C. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the vale is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct for being on HIGH. If so, you solved the problem.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Be sure to take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

My weber grill silver will not get hot over the test heat


Since I was not familiar with the term you used "will not get over the test heat." I took a look at the Owner's Manual for you model grill. The only reference I could find to temperature was in the section about preheating the grill to 550 degrees F. That being the case, I guess that's what you may have been referring too.

To solve this problem do the following, as I believe falme heights on the Highest settings are not what they should be.

First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kins ot twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!
6, Close the grill lid and allow 10 - 15 minutes for the grill to preheat to your desired temperature.

If the above didn't solve the problem. The problem, may in fact be a faulty Thermometer. To test it, invest $5.00 in an Oven Thermometer, like you use in a regular oven, that will sit on the oven rack. But, in this case will sit on the cooking grates.

Set the thermometer on the cooking grates, light all the burners, close the lid an allow the grill to preheat for 10 minutes. Then read the temp on the grill thermometer, open the lid an compare it to the Oven thermometer on the grill grates. I'm willing to bet, the oven thermometer will read higher. That's because, it's right down on the cooking grates and not reading the air temperature, like the grill thermometer is. That's why, I all ways use an oven thermometer on my own grill. It's more accurate.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling.

My weber grill (silver) does not get very hot after I open the top to do anything on the grill. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Dave Hendron


First, consider how long you preheat the grill and to what temperature are you preheating? If it's not long enough to reach at least 350 degrees, before you open the hood to start grilling. You're not allowing the grill to preheat long enough.

Second: Have you looked at the flame height on each burner when they're turned to the highest setting? It may be that the burners need to be removed and properly cleaned. In addition, the venturi valve on each burner may be partially clogged with spiders or spider webs. When that happens, the burners do get the right air to gas mixture/ratio and the burners don't fully light and heat up.

If the burner flames remain lower than they should, the grills regulator may be locked up. In which case, turn the tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Does the flame height now, appear to be normal? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. The flame height on all should be the same on the highest setting. If they don't you'll need to replace the grills regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase one at just about any home center or hardware store that sells grills and grill accessories. Just take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Any or all of the above should solve your problem. Please let me know and if you have any questions, don't fail to ask.

Low temperature Only hitting 300 degrees Has gas It's warm outside as well


Two problems - Two Solutions: Turn the LP tank valve to OFF. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank and do not reinstall for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tak valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). When the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank and turn the flame height to HIGH? Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights appear to be normal for the highest setting, you've solved the problem.

Second problem & solution: The grill thermometer may be incorrect (as they often are). If you don't have one, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (that normally sits on the oven rack) and place it on the cooking grate of your grill, toward the front of the grill. Once in place, preheat your grill as you normally would with the hood closed and at about the 15 minute mark, compare the temperature on the two thermometers. If they're within a few degrees of each other, your grill thermometer is accurate. If the Oven thermometer reads higher (more than a few degrees), the grill's T-Stat is faulty.

Personally, I always use an oven thermometer on my grill when grilling or baking anything.

Hope this helped to solve your problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!

Won't get hotter than 300 degrees


If you are confident that there is adequate gas in the tank to maintain combustion ... Turn off the tank valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (I'm talking, slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank, first. Turn it to high and light the remaining burners the same way. This should solve your problem. Just remember to always turn the tank on VERY, VERY slowly after it has been turned off.

Also, it's a good idea to test your grill thermometer to see if, in fact it's accurate. Buy a regular oven thermometer and set it on the middle grill grate, near the front of the grill. Preheat your grill with the lid closed and when the grill thermometer reaches 300 degrees, open the hood and look at the temp on the oven thermometer. Are they the same or with in a few degrees of each other? If so, your grill thermometer is accurate. If not, it's faulty.

Personally, I always use an oven thermometer when preheating my grill, because it's more accurate. And only cost about $5.00 @ Walmart.

Hope this helps solve your problem. Please be kind enough to let me know.

Happy Grilling!!!

No matter how long I let it heat up never goes past 250 degrees


First, do the flames on the burners, when they're on high, appear to be normal? Or are they lower than normal, despite the burner knob(s) being turned to high? Do you turn the tank OFF after grilling each time?

If you answered yes, to the last two questions, here's what you need to do. Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY, until it's completely open. Light each burner individually and turn the burner knob to high. Once all the burners are lit and turned to high, do the flames look taller than before?
If so, you just solved your problem. Remember to turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY each time you turn it ON.

If the above is not the problem, the grill thermostat may be faulty. To test this theory, purchase an inexpensive Oven Thermometer and place it on the grill grates, when preheating your grill. Close the lid of the grill and ten minutes later, take a look at the Oven Thermometer and compare it's temperature with the grill thermometer. If the grill thermometer is reading significantly lower than the Oven thermometer, you need to replace the grill thermometer. You can purchase one directly form Weber.

Hope this helped you solve your problem. Happy Grilling!

Hello, we have a 3 switch stainless grill that has NEVER heated up properly. It always seems to stay luke-warm. Please help.


First, how high are the flames when turned to high as opposed to the low setting on each of the 3 burners? If there's no significant difference in height between the two settings, here's what I want you to do.

Turn off the gas tank (that's assuming you are using a 20lb LPG cylinder) and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the Tank Valve ON very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Now, light each burner individually turning them to high. Are the burner flames higher than before? If so, you just solved your problem.

Remember to turn the tank ON very, very slowly after turning it off to change the tank or if you turn the tank off after each time you grill. Also, when grilling preheat the grill with the lid closed, after lighting the burners.

Hope that solved your problem ... Happy Grilling!
