Question about Smeg Ovens
The oven is not working at all. The only sign of life is an 'A' showing in the display. Can't see time or anything else. Power button doesn't light up when oven is turned on and there is no heat or fans at all. When I try and push any of the buttons under the display the whole row of buttons move in the panel as though they are a bit loose.
I've had problems in the past when the oven didn't work but this was always fixed if I pushed the last button under the display which is the Set Manual/Automatic operation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

first of all the yellow/orange light glowing is a known fault. it needs a slight wiring modification to fix it, however it dose not affect the operation of the oven nor is it dangerous.
now to the heating problem, there is a round element at the rear witch surrounds the fan. is this element getting hot? if not then it most likely needs replacing. it could be the thermostat but more likely the element.

He ended up calling a repair tech.. He came out and ended up replacing the whole control panel.
My step Dad says it works fine now and the clock is a lot brighter on the display than it was before, so maybe it was slowly going out then finally just gave in. ?? Thanks for checking in though.

Hey-- You've spent a bunch of time on this already, so let's figure it out. The first step is to check power connections. L1, L2 , Neutral for proper location and tight connections. Should have 120v and 220v checked at bus block. If these check out, then this new unit should be under warranty and qualify for service. Not unheard of bad board or loose wire on a new unit. Let a tech sort it out on site. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Testimonial: "I suspect a bad card, as I have 120v on each line black & red to white, (I am connected to aluminum wiring using anti-oxidizant grease)"

It sounds like a thermostat blocked issue ...
take oven out and remove top plate. you will see stat behind the temp control knob - usually just clipped on(sometimes stat becomes un-clipped which will cause your problem as well)
remove stat and undo capillary (wires) from mounts inside oven. reassemble in same way. note where wires go before you remove them!
If you think you can not manage ..better to have it seen by a professional cause it may be a little tricky ..
