Why does the Cooking Time not allow me to enter hours? All I get is Minutes. What is that flashing arrow above where the digits are for the time? No matter when I enter amm I can get is seconds or minutes for the maximum if the three digits I can enter. Thanks for any help

  • At a minimum you'd want to include a model number, right? – isherwood Nov 13 '17 at 20:12
  • So entering 1-3-0 doesn't get you 1 hour, 30 minutes? – isherwood Nov 13 '17 at 20:14
  • Number of hours multiplied by sixty equals the number of minutes, i.e. hrs x 60 = mins, e.g. 2 hours 20 minutes is (2x60=120)+20 = 140 minutes. – elrobis Nov 13 '17 at 20:14
  • @elrobis, I can't imagine any appliance maker requiring mental time conversion to use their product. – isherwood Nov 13 '17 at 20:15
  • ...tongue-in-cheek. IMO this is a trivial, seemingly non-problem lol. That being said, I was not the down-voter – elrobis Nov 13 '17 at 20:19

According to the operator manual, entering a setting of 500 should result in 5 hours and 00 mins, not 5 mins as you are getting. That being said it should immediately display 4:59, as it is displaying a truncated 4:59:59.

Entering 120 should be 1 hour and 20 mins, not 2 hours, the 3rd digit to the left is always hours, but you can enter 90 and get 90 mins. The max cook timer is 9hrs 99 mins.

If it is literally treating the entered value as mins/secs instead of hrs/mins, take a video of this happening, and contact Samsung support.
