If oven does not heat atall, then suspect element.
take back panel off inside oven and element is in view. sometimes the damage is obvious but not always.
remove back of casing and check for continuity thro the element with a multimeter. replacement is easy

Top element wont heat wen oven is on bake


The top element normally operates only when you turn the temperature control all the up to the broil setting as it is the broiling element. If it doesn't work at the broil setting, suspect a bad brioler element or a faulty temperature control.

The main oven has stopped working. The fan works and the Small oven also works.


There could be a few different things wrong. The element may have died. Is the fan you mention the forced air fan? No heat usually means blown fuse or faulty heating element, and since the small oven works I would suspect the the element has blown. You would benefit from getting an appliance serviceman to make a house call to replace the element. Unless you're handy and have a soldering iron, some heat resistant sleeving, and can access the back of the oven comfortably.

Hope this helps. Let me know.

Smeg oven and hob ubit: Fan works but oven wont heat up


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.
