Common Samsung Oven Error Codes that are Resolved by a Reset
The following is a list of error codes than appear across a wide range of the Samsung oven models, which may/may not appear the same for your model, but will ultimately still be fixable with a reset.
- bAd: This code indicates a loose power connection, whether at the wall outlet or the oven itself. If a reset doesn't fix this code, you will need to contact technical support and/or perform your own repair.
- CtoP: This code acts as a temporary warning about the cooktop being in use during a self clean. Ensure all burners are shut off before resetting your range and attempting another self-clean.
- SE: If you see this code, it means there's an issue with the control board of the oven. If a reset of the whole appliance does not fix this code, you will need to replace the control board.
- door: Seeing this code signifies a door closure issue, and if you're sure the door is shut completely, perform a quick reset.
