You can experience this error code on Samsung double oven and range. However, this is a common error code in F-type serious error messages.
Even with a new Samsung oven or an old one, a C F0 error message can show if the unit deals with an internal main circuit board issue.
As there are several types of small electrical elements located inside the oven mechanism, you have to manually investigate the root cause.
If you have a Samsung oven that also has a range and it displays a C F0 error code, you need to know that there is not a single main board in the unit.
There would be more than one MCB, thus, you need to remove the upper cover first to investigate which part is damaged and needs to be replaced.
In our research, we found that some individuals fixed this error code by replacing the circuit board, but unfortunately, they again got the same error message after a few months.

How to Clean CF0 Error Code on Samsung Oven?
CF0 error code is not a software-related issue in the appliance, this is a sign of damage on the main board. So, resolving this error code and reusing the oven, requires replacing the main board. You can replace yourself by following this section, or take the help of a technician if you’re not sure.
You will need a screwdriver and a new main circuit board to proceed further toward fixing.
The following are steps to Fix the C-F0 Samsung oven error code:
- First of all, isolate the oven from the mains. This is important to proceed further.
- If the upper side is hidden below the cabinetry, consider placing the oven in an open space. Take a screwdriver and open the screws of the upper panel and remove it from your oven.
- Now, take a closer look at the main circuit board. Try to find a damaged part. If any component seems damaged or there is any black mark on the control board, this means you need to remove and replace the faulty main board.
- Disconnect all the wiring from the faulty board, and remove it from the oven. Use a screwdriver to disengage the main board from its position. Do it carefully, so nothing can damage it.
- Check the model number of your Samsung oven. You can check the product specification given in the manual or look at the back side of your appliance where a sticker contains a spec description. This is an important step because as we need a new main circuit board for replacement, you can only get the same required spare part for your unit when you know which is compatible. You can search the board on Samsung’s official site or an appliance spare part store.
- Once you have a new main board, it’s time to set it in its position. Put it where you have removed the faulty one. Securely screw it on its position. Connect all the wiring back to the new board.
- Now, assemble the upper cover back in the oven. Make sure all screws are tightened and nothing is loose which was disengaged during the repair. Plug in the unit, and see if the error is resolved. All done!
Why does CF-0 code recurring after a fix on Samsung Oven?
As we described before, this error can come back after replacing the main board. This happens when the new board also faces issues with its components.
When your Samsung oven again shows a CF0 error after some months of fixing, you need to look at the internal components.
First of all, you will need to remove the upper cover of the oven to report possible damage. In case the fuse on board is open, replace it if possible. However, chances are higher that the main circuit board would be replaced again.
In case the main circuit board is under warranty, you can contact the seller for replacement. If not, get a new same part for repair.
Practically, this error code is caused only by malfunctioning in the main board components. So if it is recurring again, the solution needs to be repeated.
If you also heard a pop sound when the CF0 error comes on your oven or range, this is a clear sign of an open fuse and damage to any electrical component inside the unit. The permanent solution to this issue is the replacement of faulty elements.
Pop sound in an oven usually comes when any of its electrician components face an electric short due to overheating or unusual voltage flow.
However, whatever the cause, if there is a hitch in the working of your appliance, you probably need to fix it, so you can utilize it again.
