Question about Smeg SE399X/5 Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Oven door won't close and oven function knob gets too hot to touch

I have a SA 398 X1 about 7 years old and the door won't close completely. There is only a gap of around 5mm and the oven doesn't seal. Do I need to replace the hinges? A second problem is that the upper left side of the oven including function knob becomes very hot. The right side is quite cool to touch. I don't think this is related to the door as the gap is bigger on the right hand side. I'm wary of sinking a lot of money into it as I have already had to replace the rear element at some cost. Any advice appreciated.

SOURCE: 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

If the fan is running, then it is safe to say that the oven element has gone.
Replace with a new one,(element that is).,
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

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.
thanks,

SOURCE: Smeg oven door off hinges

go to the last couple of pages on the pdf...I found that the little notch on the bottom part of the hinge fitted on the outside edge of the slot - not as it appeared (to me) on an internal sort of bar. Looked at the smaller of the two ovens and its the same (doh! only made sence when I looked at the diagram!!)

Knobs on hob above the oven getting very hot. Guess heat must be escaping from the oven. Any suggestions?


Try putting a layer of insulating materials between the Knob and the oven. That should help.

Amica oven door gets so hot that my child has burnt hes hands and needed medical attention


Amica is a European brand, I recommend you contact the company headquarters or a competant local repair shop. Any oven left at a very high temperature for a long period of time gets pretty hot, though, and an eleven month old baby has pretty tender skin.

My father solved this one, those clocks were such a hassle, ours buzzed for days til he fixed it. It requires opening the control panel and bypassing the wiring that allows the clock to turn the oven on and off. Of course you lose this function. Is that the complete model number?

I have misplaced the manual for my oven and I need the self cleaning instructions. Model # RF365PXDQ0 Serial # FE2007966


First remove the racks, broiler pan (complete) and any aluminum foil that is in the oven. Hand clean any large deposits inside the oven. Use a non-abrasive cleanser, not an oven cleaner. Clean around the door frame and the edge of the door (outside of the gasket) with hot water and detergent. Close the door to the oven and make sure there are no plastic utensils near the vent of the oven. Make sure that your kitchen is well ventilated.

Next move the lock lever to the right. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature both to Clean. Make sure that the clock, Start and Stop times are set to the correct time. Then push in and turn the Stop time knob clockwise to 3 hours (normal cycle). Make sure the Start time knob is not pushed in. Now wait for the cleaning cycle to be completed and for the oven to cool down. The lock lever can not be moved back to the left until the oven is cool. Forcing it will break it. Turn the Oven Selector and the Oven Temperature knobs to Off.

The manual is available here: http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203189075.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=WHRCOM and enter the model number and then click Go.

I hope this helps.

Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.


Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.

I assume that you are grilling with the oven door open and not closed, if you are grilling with the door closed, then this will cause an overheating problem,if this is not the case, then I would suggest that the grill regulator is faulty,. and needs replacing.
It not covered by health and safety rules.
Please leave any comments you may have, as I like to know if my comments are appropiate.
Thanks.

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work


Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
