Summary: Loved the look and feel of this range and its many features. Top burners are great and top is easy to clean. Stainless requires constant loving (meaning rubbing with SS cleaner) to look good. The PROBLEM: the oven does not get up to temperature. I used it for several days knowing that something was wrong but giving myself time to adjust to the newness of the oven.
Summary: received on Dec 28, 2011. Issue #1 left side panel was damaged would not stay snaped in at the bottom it bowed out. Issue #2 Storage drawer will not stay on its track, when you pull it out one side or the other hits the floor. I didnt see any brackets or rollers attached to the drawer. In my opinion thats whats missing but after looking at the manual all it shows is vinyl clips that snap on to internal rail so not sure.
Summary: I am returning this oven. Although it is nice because it looks great, that only gets you so far. I thought when i first bought the oven that it was not cooking as quickly as my old oven. So I bought an oven thermometer and lo and behold the oven temperature was 50 degrees less than displayed on the oven. So to bake something at 350 I had to raise the temp to 400. I called samsung and they told me how to re calibrate it. That didn't work so they sent a technician out.
Summary: Everything was okay for range, but when using the cooktop, the gas coming out was loud. We have an open floor plan and it was loud enough to distract people in living room some 20 feet away. Switched to Bosch and we've been happy since. Pros: Good feature set for price. Cons: Loud when using cooktop, Cheap bottom drawer.
Summary: Overall I love the product and what it has to offer, but within a month of purchase the convection fan stopped working. Judging from other reviews on other retailers I am not the only one with this problem. I would still consider it a good buy if Lowe’s protection plan repairs the defect promptly, but as of now, 2 weeks after I first reported the issue, the problem still exists.

Summary: We bought the samsung gas range because we already have a samsung refrigerator and over the range microwave so we wanted to keep the same styling, same stainless steel finish, handle curve and LED lighting. The range looks great and completes the package within our kitchen = so in that we were successful. Unfortunately, we keep having buyers remorse over the price.
