Question about Smeg Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My Smeg oven heats up to extremely high temperature even when the gauge is on 50 degrees celcius so I've stopped using it because everything is getting burnt. To identify the model just before the word 'Smeg' it has 2 sets of 3 circles. It has the standard oven temperature system i.e. 50,100,140,180,200,250 and is fan bake all the time so I think this system is faulty as well. Please help?

GE JGSP31GER Gas Oven doesn't heat up hot enough


The part your talking about used to run about $275 which is pretty high for a free standing range but the cost of it isn't important. The reason why is that they no longer make that part anymore and when i looked it up I got NLA which means no longer available. You may get lucky and find a company that possibly has one still in stock, but there is no way that it will come with a warranty, so if its a dud when you get it your stuck with it. I would invest my money in something I could fix when it came time to.

Oven Pre-heats too high


Your oven sensor has gone bad and telling the control board/thermostat to keep heating. Find the model number on the range and go to a parts distributor like repairclinic.com or apdepot.com and order you sensor. This is an easy repair.

Oven temp not correct


One thing you should know about a gas oven is that they do not keep a constant tempature like an electric oven does. So going by a tempature gauge in the oven can fool you. The way a gas oven works is by "average" tempature. In other words if you take the highest and lowest tempature readings and average them out you will get the actual tempature. For example let's say that you set the oven to 350. Well first it will take about 10 to 15 minutes for the oven to properly pre-heat. Once it is preheated you can listen to the gas burner and watch a tempature gauge(flook meter is best). When the gas burner shuts off the oven tempature will continue to rise. When the oven tempature stops rising then you will take that reading. Then wait for the oven burner to come back on again and watch the tempature gauge. When the tempature gets to it's lowest point and stops then take that reading. Do this several times and then take all the tempature readings and add them together then divide that number by the number of readings you took and that will give you the actual tempature. Within 5 degrees is great but anything over 10 degrees can affect your cooking. This will give you an idea if your oven is out of calibration or not.

There is a calibration procedure. The instuctions are located in the owners manual and can be found here http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF

Just go to the "Thermostat Adjustment" section for the proper calibration procedure.

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

Whirlpool oven 50 degrees too low


How do you know? Use an oven thermometer to check and leave it in for half an hour after the oven reports hitting temperature. Your manual should have a recalibration method.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Smeg main oven failure


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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
