Question about Smeg A2.5 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Glass breaking Hi, The continuing saga of my Smeg A2-5 oven... Having had the element go "POP!" and replacing it the main overn glass then shattered. I replaced that and, rather annoyingly, the glass has shattered again. Now, I've always felt that the oven runs very very hot but am in two minds whether it is the thermostat that may be faulty. The red thermostat light goes on and off but could it still be faulty? Best regards!

    Hi



    I have had a smeg oven for 6 months and tonight the glass shattered (after the loud bang). The kids were frightened and I dunno what has caused it. I also have had problems with my dishwasher and fridge also from smeg therefore can only assume this is a rubbish make.



    What did Smeg say about your glass breaking? I will have to phone them in the morning but I am still traumatised by it

Hi - I have tried to clean the internal glass panel of our Smeg cooker using an oven cleaner.


The brown stains are on the inner surfaces of the "sealed" glass panel.

How do I take the glass out my oven door model AP578X-8


Hi, I have pasted the instructions for your Smeg oven you below:
9.4 Removing the internal glass panels
The glass in the door should always be kept thoroughly clean. To facilitate
cleaning, it is possible to remove the door (see 9.2 Removing the door) and
place it on a canvas, or open it and lock the hinges in order to extract the glass
panels.
The glass panels of the door can be completely removed by following the
instructions provided below.
Warning: before removing the glass panels, make sure that at least one of the
door's hinges has been locked in the open position as described in "9.2
Removing the door". This operation may have to be repeated during the glass
removal process if the door is accidentally freed.

Removing the internal glass panel:
• Remove the internal glass panel by
pulling it upwards, following the
movement indicated by the arrows. Doing
this detaches the 4 pins attached to the
glass from their slots in the oven door.
Removing the intermediate glass panels
(on some models only):
• Some multifunction models have an
intermediate glass panel. Remove the
intermediate panel by lifting it upwards.
Cleaning:
• It is now possible to clean the external
glass panel and the panels removed
previously. Use absorbent kitchen roll. In
the case of stubborn dirt, wash with a
damp sponge and neutral detergent.
Replacing the glass panels:
• Replace the panels in the reverse of the
order in which they were removed.
• Reposition the internal glass panel, taking
care to centre and insert the 4 pins
attached to the glass into their slots in the
oven door by applying slight pressure.

SMEG A21X-5 Freestanding Cooker: Main oven has smoke/fumes everytime its used!


usual cause of fumes is if the grill is in the oven, when for example a roast is done, fat spits onto the grill element and the circular element and smokes. if you leave it on, the smoke will clear. some ovens have a fat guard which clips over the grill in the centre of the back panel to prevent this.
to clean glass, just use scouring pads - glass is virtually impossible to scratch

Loose Oven door handle


Hi,
You may have to get some loctite brand paste in a tube for applying to the threads of the bolts that hold it on.
This will prevent the screws from loosening.
Another way would be to get some spring washers or star washers at your local hardware store such as menards.

Door Glass


The only solution seems to be ordering a custom glass piece matching the dimension of the glass on the oven door. However, since my oven is white I would like the door to be white too. Although I have found glass guys who can tint the glass door dark, I have not found anyone who can color it white. Let me know if anyone knows such a glass vendor.

Stuck on Glass cycle!


Hi melH Sounds like the water is not heating. Will be either an open circuit thermostat, heater element, or the switch / relay that controls the element. Using an ohm meter, test the element for resistance. Check thermostats for continuity. Regards

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.
