Question about Smeg A1A.1 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Electric oven fan

When cooking is finished the fan usually continues for a period of time too cool oven down and then switch off. Now the oven fan stays on permanently after switching oven off and the only way too stop the fan is to switch cooker off at the mains.

    Oven has power but switches don't turn on element or fan



1 Answer

This problem is caused by one of two components, depending on the model, there is a thermal cut in thermostat that keeps the fan running until the unit has cooled down and on some models there is a four wire timing device that keeps the fan running for a specific time after the temperature drops, the fault can only be casued by one of these components.

The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.

Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

My microwave used to continue making sounds even when item was taken out and cooking time completed. I thought this was part of the mictowave cooling down (sim to fan oven). However, this noise has now...

All microwaves do have a "transmitter" tube called a magnetron. It has to put electrical power into microwaves. To do so it gets warm or even hot. As soon as the transmitter is to hot, it must be cooled down. Most of the time it can be cooled without a fan. But as long as the thermostat indicates it is to hot, the system will cool. Even when you switched the system off. Don't unplug the microwave when it is still hot. It could damage the magnetron.

My AEG competence oven is making a loud buzzing noise coming from the top fan? The food tonight was either burnt or under cooked? The buzzing is also loud when switched off/cooling down? Any ideas please.

I would suspect that the problem is caused by the external cooling fan located under the outside cooker cabinet housing, which continues to operate as the oven is cooling down if it is built in, you will have to remove it from the oven housing to access the fan

Door needs to be closed in cook mode to work. You sure you put the switch in the right way up? Also you could have a dodgy door switch as the cook/cool switch and the door switch operate as a two-way circuit.

High limit switch trips and needs re-set

After grilling or cooking at higher temps leave the oven light on so the cooling fan continues to run for approx 1/4 hour, or whatever setting will keep the fan running...

I have a Competence B1180, it cuts out after irregular periods of time, although sometimes it may even complete a cooking cycle, if turned off for 10-15min it will re-start, but invariably cuts out again...

Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
