We have been advised that the following STAR-K certified Samsung gas ranges have a Sabbath Mode that does not work properly:
If you own one of these models, click here to contact Samsung for a fix.
Until you get the fix you need to install an oven “ShabboSwitch”. This device is available at your local bookstore or online. Any method of keeping the plunger switch on the frame of the oven depressed will work. If using tape, make sure it can withstand the heat of the oven. (Duct tape may not work.)
Please note that you still need to put your oven into Sabbath Mode before Shabbos or YomTov, even if you have installed a “ShabboSwitch”.
The Sabbath mode in all STAR-K certified Samsung electric ranges is fully functional and meets all our halachic requirements.
