Model number NE58H9970WS/AC
Issue: Large right front burner will not heat -- displays the code for 'no pot detected'. Condition persists with any pot, with or without contents. All other functions are normal.
I read the very helpful thread at Samsung induction stove not detecting cookware. There, pairs of burners (left or right) exhibited a similar problem. Unlike the posts on that thread, only one burners malfunctions on my range, requiring a modified diagnosis.
Does the failure of a single burner eliminate the PCBs as the source of the problem? I could not tell if the load sensing function for both burners was channeled through a single circuit for the PCB controlling that side. Can anyone here say?
Per the earlier thread, I disassembled the range and examined the wiring and the PCBs. I found no wiring issues. Careful examination of the solder points on the three PCBs found no clear failure points. One point was marginally questionable, and I re-soldered it. No change to the problem.
If the PCBs are not the problem, what remains seems to be the button sensor in that burner, and the wiring from the button sensor to the PCB. As noted, the wiring appears in good condition. Does anyone have info about failure of the sensor button? As this part is comparatively cheap, I will try replacing this next.
As always, questions, comments, and insights are appreciated.
