Samsung Oven Range Warming Drawer Not Closing All the Way

Does your Samsung oven/range warming drawer no longer close all the way? This could be because the center clip that holds the heating element, has become bent upwards.

The solution for us was to:

  1. Remove the warming drawer from the glide guides (you need to push one lever up on one side and the other lever on the other side down).
  2. Use a rubber mallet (you may need to turn it sideways to have enough room to move it up and down) to tap/hammer down on the center/rear-most metal clip securing the heating element IF you notice that this clip is bent upward.
  3. Reinstall the warming drawer.
