Question about Smeg SE250XUK Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

SMEG SUK61MFX I am attempting to replace the fan element. When I took the old one out I noted that the 2 white leads crimped together and in a plastic sleeve were on the rhs and the 2 yellow and green leads, not sheathed were on the lhs. What I did not appreciate was that there was a third (middle) pole attached to the bracket and therefore earthed. When the replacement part arrived it did not have the middle pole just the 2 at either end of the element. So I attached the 2 leads to the 2 poles at either end. This blew the fuse! They are sending me a new element should the element be connected by the white leads to the element and the yellow green leads to earth via the attachment plate scews?

Silly boy!
the element is probably ok as what you did will not damage it.
the green/yellow wire should go to the base plate and if there is no connector for it, just use one of the fixing bolts. the other two wires go to each end of the element

Replacing Oven Element

I could not get the link to boot up but your element should be 220 volt. In thin case it would not matter which wire went on either terminal. The red would carry 110 volt and the black would carry 110 volt, thereby giving you the required 220 volt. The unit would get it's ground through the metal chassis.

Fixed fan element, but can't remember how to put it back together again

This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

I have replaced the baking element on our Jenn Air oven for years. However, I have recently put in two replacement elements and they both did the same thing...the element did not warm up at all, and when...

Sounds like you have a bad or loose wire on the element plug. If you could post the model number of the unit I will see if I have the service manual for your range.

Single oven BT2385SS - took 2 hours to get to temperature after blowing a RCD circuit in the fuse board. Fear that element has gone at 2 yrs and 3 months old.

I think your fear is correct, it sounds as if the heating element is going although you do not say if the fan is working.

Fan oven replacement

if your new element is missing a terminal it is likely to be the earth terminal so when your new element arrives DO NOT connect the green\yellow wire to anything just wrap it in duct tape. As this is the earth if you connect it to the element you are just making a dead short so will blow element and fuse. The element is touching the oven liner so is earthed by the oven anyway. :)

Sunbeam electric fireplace

Most likely sounds like the thermal fuse has gone out. if you take off the top of the fireplace you will find a little metal tube in front of the blower. This is the thermal fuse if it has gone out only your fan will blow and the heating element will not put out heat. You can pick one of the fuses up at radio shack for 3 dollars. the only problem is how to go about repacing it since it was crimped in and you can't use a soldering iron because it will trip it. If I come up with a way to change it I will let you know so far I can't.

How to replace a fan bake oven hidden element

Before attempting any repairs, make sure the power is turned off! If you are unsure or not confident, please call a service technician.
The element is behind a cover that is held in place either by screws or clips. Once the cover is removed, the element will be visible. The element will be screwed in place by a number of screws on the base plate and around the element itself. After removing the screws, pull the element fron the rear of the oven. the wires should be attached to the element via lugs. The lugs need to be unattached from the element. Before removing the wiring, take note of the connections so that reinstallation can be carried out.
