Question about Smeg SE250XUK Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven
When i try and switch oven on the light to say the oven is heating does not come on and it does not get hot. Fan and internal light do come on so suggests there is electric supply. Could it be a thermostat or heating element problem
We had a similar problem with Smeg fan forced over. The fan turned but the element around the fan didn't heat. Tried looking for the high-limit switch to reset, but couldn't find it. Eventually unscrewed a metal plate off the back of the oven and found a broken wire. Fixed this and the element now works. Don't forget to unplug oven before unscrewing things.

Do the top and bottom elements come on when selected?
If the fan comes on, but none of the other elements come on when selected, it might be that the thermostat switch needs to be reset.
By the thermostat connection at the back, there should be a switch - a small blue button, than might have popped out. Push it back in and see if it works...
It worked for me when I replaced my element many years ago, and last night when my oven stopped giving heat, I had to open up the back and reset the button.
Hope it helps

Your problem may be an accumulation of 2 or 3 things. no light could be blown bulb or loose connection also you may have a thermostat issue or corroded connection going to element or a blown element. check power at element if power there then element is blown. if no power then check voltage goin into thermostat. it has to be one or the other.

You are right, it could be a thermostat or a heater problem. You should check that the heater element receive power. In case it receive power,the heater element should be replaced. In case it doesn't receive power, the problem is with the thermostat. In any case, check as well that all wires connected to the thermostat and the heater are in place. Good luck.

Before you change anything try the broiler circuit. If the broiler works then it could be an element if not then you could have a problem with the oven thermostat.

I have the same problem. The oven was working fine until I cleaned it. There was a power failure during the cleaning, but it appeared to function properly until the cleaning cycle finished. I spoke to Dacor customer service and they told me there is a "high limit" switch to ensure that high temperatures do not damage the electronics. They recommended calling a local servicer to come and check the oven and reset the switch. They indicated that the servicer may be willing to tell me over the phone where the switch is so that I could reset it myself. They like to have someone come out just to make sure nothing else is wrong with the oven. Given that there was a power failure in my case, chances are a simple reset will do the trick. You may have a similar situation. If anyone knows where the switch is, it would be good to share on this forum. In any event, I'll call the local service department tomorrow and try to find out.

First thing to check in a case like this is the main switch as this is almost always the problem as if it was just the heating element then the light would come on as well as the fan. Also be sure to check the house curcuit breaker as in this case has been a big amount of service calls for blown breakers Good Luck. Oh yea depending on the ovens type there may also be a control panel that the switch tells the elements and fans and lights to com e on..

Two things sharyn, first check the breakers. It is possible that one of two that control the stove tripped...they are in tandem. Shut them off and back on. If no fix: You'll have to remove and test the element. (if more than one element is involved here...it might be the thermostat) Breakers off, pull the element out and have someone take an ohm meter and test the unit. Still no good? Then it will be the thermostat or relay. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: no heat when i switch oven on
There is no doubt that it is the element that has failed, so all you need to do is replace the fan oven element.
If you can see a removable panel at the rear of the oven ,remove that, and you should see the element.
Remove and replace.
If ther is no removable panel then you will have to access it from the rear of the oven cabinet.
Plz rate my solution.

It sounds like you have either one of the following things that need attention. First, turn off both breakers to the oven and then back on. Next check the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. Next, check your internal fuses. Most ovens have them. Last, check the wiring to the elements and control switches. Somewhere you have a wire burned off the terminals or control switch. That smell you referred to is probably one of the wires that may be burned.
