Oven and thermostat indicators stay lit after bulb change

I've just changed the green bulbs behind the main oven function and thermostat indicators on my Smeg A2 2DA range. Now, they remain lit regardless of the position. The secondary over works as expected - they're off unless the oven is being used. Is this indicative of a thermostat problem (I think it's a bit dodgy anyway, as it does thermally cut-out on occasion), or something that may have been going on with dead bulbs anyway, or have I inadvertently wired them up wrong (don't think so). Or something else..?

SOURCE: light bulb

for most smeg, the bulb cover just unscrews as does the bulb and the bulb is a heat-proof small edison screw type

SOURCE: smeg ovens

quite easy. take oven out and remove top plate. you will see stat behind the temp control knob - usually just clipped on(sometimes stat becomes unclipped which will cause your problem as well)
remove stat and undo capilliary from mounts inside oven. reassemble in same way. note where wires go before you remove them!

SOURCE: smeg oven not working. only clock and thermostat light working

It sounds like you have either one of the following things that need attention. First, turn off both breakers to the oven and then back on. Next check the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. Next, check your internal fuses. Most ovens have them. Last, check the wiring to the elements and control switches. Somewhere you have a wire burned off the terminals or control switch. That smell you referred to is probably one of the wires that may be burned.

SOURCE: oven will not switch on

My Smeg oven will not work either. All I get is an "A" on the display, the clock has disappeared and as a result the oven won't come on. I see from other postings here I can bypass the clock so that the oven works again - can anyone advise how I do this?

Hi

It's not too difficult to change the thermostat but it will depend on which model you have.

Zanussi oven zbf 360 + bulb blows repeatedly


bulbs blow from incorrect voltage in use or loose ground wires ( arcing out)
if they fail while the oven is on it is because the bulb construction glass is wrong
bulbs used in ovens need a special heated treated glass and are generally only available from the service agent
failing immediately on turning on indicates a bigger problem that the bulb so call in an electrician to test the system

How to change light bulb in microwave?


Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link..
Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.


1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.

Stuck oven light bulb


I use 2 sided tape to get a grip on the bulb. If it is really stuck and you end up breaking it, don't worry as it will be easier to remove the rest of the bulb with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Hotpoint oven thermostat replaced again a few months ago now oven working but thermostat bulb not. Can this be replaced and how ? Thanks


Depending on which thermostat you are talking about , the main oven thermostat is complete with with sensing bulb, so is replaced as a complete unit.
The other stats, including over heating stat, and cooling fan stat do not have a sensing bulb, they are a bi-metal device, and can be replaced individually.

How to change bulb on newworld g90 vision cooker


To change the bulb is quite easy, the glass lens screws off, give it a good soak and clean whist popping out to buy a new bulb, otherwise you won't notice the difference. Note the bulb is a special oven bulb, if yoo can't read the old bulbs rating it's probabily a 25W 230/240V rated for 300deg C - try Wilko's around £2.50

Jenn-air microwave light bulb


This is an older (Mfgr. May, 1987) microwave oven. Functions perfectly, works an looks good to this day, just no light inside. I searched a couple of websites looking for parts for this unit and appliancepartspros.com provided schematics of the product that I own. From those drawings, it was determined that the microwave oven will have to be slid out of the cabinet above the built-in oven in order to change a $2.37, 40W light bulb. Just a handfull of scrws retaining the oven and exhaust baffles and I'll get it out (onmce the New Year's Eve hangover disappears). The engineer who designed a system like this must have been on an Acid Trip. I haven't looked closely at newer microwave ovens, but I'd have to believe changing a crummy light bulb would have to be made easier than this during the preliminary engineering phase of design.

Bakers pride pizza oven not lighting


Hello. Usually this problem is related to the pilot being dirty, and not heating the bulb for the safety device properly/hot enough to fully open the valve. If you have a general purpose mini torch you can heat the metal bulb near the pilot with it, if this is the problem, the safety will open, and the main burner will come on. CAREFUL, you are not on/around the main burner, as it will allow gas to come on to the main burner, and if your pilot is not working properly, might not light the gas. Get the pilot cleaned and adjusted.

or... :) I know... your safety has failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but internally is not opening, this requires replacement. Last though, it could be your thermostat, its last in line, and would require replacement. The safety, and the thermostat are mechanical valves, open or closed depending on its function.

If you have a more current type, they will have a combination valve, and thermopile/thermocouple that are electromechanical, your thermostat at this point can be either mechanical, or electromechanical. This system has a few more possible causes for your symptom.
You can tell which you have by how you light the pilot, have a red button on the front of the unit, by the on/off valve? this is the first type.
Have to open a small door to access a knob, turn it to pilot, and hold in? this is the latter type.
ask if you need more help.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Change oven thermostat


Not familiar with the brand - but there are two types of temperature sensors - i am assuming here that the person meant temperature sensor rather that a thermostat.
1 bulb type sensor
2 rtd type sensor (metal looking tube usually installed at back)
If its the bulb sensor - then there is a long tube from the bulb to the main dial on the front panel. All of this must be removed to change it. (power turned off) The knob on the dial removed and the front panel removed and the screws removed and the bulb threaded through - reverse to installed.

If its the rtd - then they are usually secured with two screws inside the oven (look inside to see) loosen those then pull the unit towards you the connecting wires should come through there should be a quick connector - (if under counter type) remove the old sensor and connect new one. Thread the wires back through the hole and secure the new sensor with screws - if the screws were damaged replace with only stainless screws
