SMEG Grill Element Screw Falls Out

Hello,

this may be a long shot but I was hoping you may be able to help me.
I own a Smeg Cooker and the grill element keeps coming loose.
The screw holding it in place keeps falling out.
Every time I attempt to put it back there doesn't appear to be anything for it to screw into.
No thread at least.
It just turns in the hole in the roof.
Am I missing something?

Thanks for any assistance
Chris Clifton

    Thanks

    You Sir, are a legend.

    It seems so obvious now.

    I was so fixated about using the current screw.

    Well... 35 cents later I'm all good.

    Cheers Man... thanks for he help.

    And Big Ups to Fix-Ya

    Cheers and Merry Christmas,

    Chris Clifton

There may have been a nut welded in the roof that has worked itself loose,or more likely you have stripped the thread.

try using a self-tapping screw to hold it in place

Smeg oven and hob ubit: Fan works but oven wont heat up


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.

Top oven grill element


Hey there, Shouldn't be too difficult. Just two nuts to remove. If unsure about reconnecting wiring, draw yourself a little diagram clearly indicating the colours. Let me know if you are having further problems.
