Thank you for the question. The FX510BGS does not come with the griddle, but this accessory can be ordered separately by calling 800-SAMSUNG.

Yes, the FX510BGS has both regular Bake and Convection Bake settings to give you the option of whether to use the convection feature or not. For more information on other features and settings for this model, feel free to download a pdf of the user manual from Samsung's website.

Thanks for your interest!

Here's what the owner's manual says under BROILING:
"1. Place the food on a broiling pan with insert grid. Place the food and pan on the top oven rack, positioned as recommended in the 'Recommended broiling guide' on page 42. Close oven door.
2. Press the BROIL pad once for Hi and twice for Lo. The oven will beep every time a pad is pressed.

The Start indicator will blink to the right of Hi or Lo and Broil on the display. Use Lo to cook foods such as poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly without overbrowning them."

It goes on with setting details and a full page of broiler recommendations on the next page in a grid of Food, Qty/Thickness, Rack position, 1st side time, 2nd side time, and Comments. Pretty thorough. So, yes, it does have a broiler.

Thanks for the question. When convection mode is selected, the fan should run intermittently as needed to circulate the air and maintain the set oven temperature.

Question

On what side on the back of the stove is the gas line connection?

We are having a plumber come out to install a gas line and need to know where the connection is on the back of the stove (left or right?)

In the Installation Requirements section of installation manual (provided with delivery), it's a bit confusing for a lay person, but the gas pipe area is on the left. In the diagram it says "17 in X 9 in Gas Wall Area" which is illustrated in grey and appears to be 17" from left, 9" high. It seems the left is recommended, stating this area is "recommended area for through-the-wall and through-the-floor connection of gas pipe stub and shut-off valve." which I take to mean no farther to right than 17", no higher than 9".

My old gas pipe was too high, so had to be replaced.

Also, the electric cord was too short, so outlet had to be moved. Above counter, about 10-12" extension.

The gas line connection is located on the lower right side when facing the rear of the FX510BGS. Please see attached for the recommended gas and electrical connection locations, which can also be found in the installation guide that comes with the gas range.

Thank you,
Ms. Samsung

Touch panel seems to be made of hard plastic. I'm guessing it's heat sensitive.

The FX510BGS has a membrane-type control panel, not glass touch.

Thanks for the question. The knobs on the FX510 gas range are made primarily of a high temperature plastic, weighted for durability and ‘feel’, then chrome-coated and brushed for a “stainless look”. This design ensures an optimal combination of durability, aesthetics and safety. Metal knobs are not available for safety reasons.

Question

Is the control panel a true touch screen? Or membrane-type that has to be pushed?

Do you have to just touch the control panel on this model or do you have to actually push the control/button? I have a Samsung refrig and it is true touch. I just bought the NX583GOVBSR oven and the controls seem a little hard to push. Is the FX510 the same membrane-type control?

You do have to touch the buttons a bit to choose your setting or what you want. It's not just a touch screen where you would barely touch past a setting. Now it's not hard to push, pretty easy actually! In all, we love this stove and find it pretty high end.

Question

Is it normal for the center burner (for grill) to have a low flame, even on the high setting?

I love my new range, but I tried to use the center burner for the first time today, and even on the high setting, the heat is like medium-low on the other burners. This will certainly not boil a large pot of water in a reasonable time, and it took forever to cook a pancake. Does it need adjustment?

The middle burner will not get a large pot of water to boil quickly, but the front right one does very quickly for us! I know the middle burner is more for using a griddle or grill pan, and the flame is less than others but for getting more even cooking on what you're making. No need for adjustment, it's just what it does. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the question. Each burner on the FX510BGS is designed for a different level of BTUs (the amount of gas allowed through each orifice), which determines the height of the flame. The center oval burner is rated for 9,500 BTUs, which is nearly double that of the right rear simmer burner (5,000 BTUs), but much less than the right front power burner (17,000 BTUs) as well as the left front (15,000 BTUs). If your center burner does not appear to fall within this range, I would suggest contacting your installer or another licensed technician to adjust the flame height for you.
