Smeg oven SE399X/5 - digital clock issue

Hi, the plastic part of the digital clock has 'dislodged' and is not covering the button holes properly. the buttons seem to be worn away and will not press in either. How do i get the front part of the oven off to re-seat the clock. Or how can i get the buttons to work. The oven is stuck on 'A' for automatic and will not turn on at all now since i had a power!!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one either - in the end I bought new buttond from smeg service/parts centre on their website. I took apart the front of the oven and re-seated the clock. I pushed in the new buttons and now its all ok. My problem was that because the clock had mis-lodged the buttons were touching the metal at the front of the oven, and like you when the grill is on the metal gets too hot and melts all the buttons. So the clock has to be in exactly the right place or it will melt the buttons so much that they will not press in...what a bummer!!! :-)

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue. My husband had the grill on too high and melted the buttons, I thought they weren't going in because of that but we've got new buttons and they're working at one side of the clock and not the other. For the meantime, you can get a thin screwdriver, or something, and poke it through the holes where the buttons would go to substitue. That will get it working in the short term.

My clock does not work on my stove

Hi Jason. Have you performed the following actions?
Electronic Timing Center (Analog Clock w/Digital Display)
Synchronizing the analog and digital clocks
1. Press the "timer" and "start time" buttons simultaneously.
2. Turn the set knob to move the hands on the analog clock to any time setting.
3. After five seconds the display will go blank. Press the timer button and using the set knob, set the digital time to the exact time on the analog clock. This will synchronize the two clocks. You can now set the time of day.
Setting the Time-of-Day
The time-of-day must be set before any other program can be used. When your oven is first connected to the power in your home, the digital display will show 00:00. To program the time-of-day:
1. Push and hold the "timer" and "bake hours" button at the same time.
2. Turn the "Set" knob until correct time is displayed on the digital clock.
3. Release "timer" and "bake hours" button
The analog clock will automatically set after the digital time is set

Let me know so that I may follow up if need be.

Smeg oven is "locked", needs unlocking or resetting

Use a flashlight and look into the hole from where you normally feel hot airflow. Locate the hook holding the door on the left side. Using a thin screwdriver or a knife gently push the hook to the left. Voila! The door is open and functions are back working normally. Also known as Error 4 interlock problem. This will depends on the model of the oven

SMEG SA410X-S heat not coming on for fan forced cooking. The fan and light work, and the heat works fine for grilling.

The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch. If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.

Turn off at mains, turn on again. 0:00 will flash press the manual op key ( on mine button on right) use +/- keys to set the time. Don't use buttons with wavy lines as they are for setting auto cooking time.
