SMEG SA 388X not working at all

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.

Thanks

Lyn

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.

Hey there-
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.

SOURCE: New oven won't work and can't set time, display keeps blinking

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

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 ..

Smeg linear oven is displaying sho (showroom mode) and will not heat up. I have held down function knob for 5 seconds which clears SHO from display but within seconds it comes back. Any ideas


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
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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

SMEG SA 398X


OK I have just moved into an apartment with this model (SA 398 X/1) and was searching for a user guide (no luck yet).

Anyhow my apartment was owned by a bachelor and it looks as though he hardly used the oven so everything's still intact.

I'm in Australia and these numbers are in Celsius so I hope they work for you.

From top Right (starting at the 2 o'clock position) the four numbers going clockwise downwards are:

50
90
120
160

Then from the left side (starting at 7 o'clock position) going clockwise upwards:

200
230
250 - with dots arching above the 250

Hope this helps -

Jane
