Fitting Base Element for SMEG DO4SS-5

Http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=1382771&prdid=0

Following on from the above problem I purchased a base element (turns out the grill element in the base oven was still working). Now I can't figure out how to replace it or if it even uses a base element. Is the fan element the problem? Any ideas?

Some fan assisited ovens do have a base element, some do not.
If there is no heat at all in the oven , then it is safe to say that the fan element has gone, replace that first, if it does not reach correct operating temp, then it probably has a base element as well that needs to be replaced, this would mean removing outer oven panels to access it.
Plz rate my soution.
Thanks.

Why is my oven not heating up?


Call an electrician. Sounds like a thermal cut out or a bad element.

Oven digital lighted display is dim


You need to replace the C3 capacitor on the control board

You can replace only the C3 - it is 68uF / 35V and you can go to Radio Shack and get their part # 272-1028 - 100uF/35V one. It takes all but 10 minutes to re-solder the new one in place

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 you're 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.
