Do you need any more help, before your request times out?

I dont have the model number the stove came with the house. it is a glass top four burners. The burners work well, but neither the bake nor the broil work. When I set the temperature say for 325 degrees to bake, it shows the actual temperature of the oven like 150 degrees, a row of bars going upwards in the display indicating it should work, there is a clicking noise then it displays E-08 which as I have found out an indication of either faulty heating element or the controls (thermostat). Since the stove is fairly new, I assume the heating elements should work well, it is the controls since neither the bake nor the broil setting works. I am an electrical engineer so tell me step by step what to do then I can fix this problem myself.

By the way it is a samsung
Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.

If, by the words 'fairly new' you mean the unit is less than one year old, you should contact the selling dealer, or the company, at and request a service call by an authorized servicer. If the unit is still in its warranty coverage, the call and necessary repairs should be given to you at no cost.

If you find that the unit is out of warranty, please send the model number to me, so I can look for the technical information I need to assist you in solving your problem.

As I said the stove came with the house. I don't have receipts or model number. When I say fairly new, it looks like about 3-4 years old. I don't think there are so many varieties of 3-4 year old Samsung ranges, especially regarding the controls.
