Re: smoke from oven

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years sounds like pure coincidence, check the fan for circuit at terminals, and / or check for movement of blades, that you have not got fan jammed, replace fan motor unit if needed, still cheaper than a call out if i have helped rate me work with safety all the time, unplug at all times when working on any item

How to set timer

I found a pdf of the manual for your stove. See the link below to download the pdf.
If you press the button that looks like a bell under the clock you can use + an - keys to set the minutes for a reminder timer that won't turn off the oven.
After turning the thermostat to the temp you want and function knob to the setting you want set the cooking time as follows.
You press the button that looks like steam coming off a pan below the clock for 1/2 second .
Then use + an - keys to set the minutes. Every 12 minutes will make a new segment light up on the inside ring so the numbers corospond to hours on the inside ring.
When the time is where you want it, wait 6 to 10 seconds and the cooking and timer will start.

I have a smeg A42-5 oven and the digital clock as gone blank and i'm unable to use the oven but the grill still works. can anyone help?

Hi There
I have found this for to read and hope this will help you. Let me know how it goes.
The clock stopped The non-electronic clocks on electric range/ovens often don't last long. That's a problem, because the clock is essential to the self-cleaning and timed-bake features. Clocks are rarely repairable--you usually just have to replace them. Electronic clocks have been more reliable. But, they're often integrated with several other features of the range/oven. So when the clock develops a defect, it often renders the entire oven and broiler inoperative. The electronic clock is usually integrated with a circuit board, and the touchpad that holds the buttons you press is often a separate component. If your electronic clock is defective, you may need to replace the touchpad, circuit board, or both. Although these may be expensive, they aren't usually very complicated to replace.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

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.

Suk92mfx5 main oven problem?

the fan element would have blown. it is not uncommon for an element to trip an rcd when it blows. you are on the right track, if you replace the element all your problems should go away

Electric oven fan

This problem is caused by one of two components, depending on the model, there is a thermal cut in thermostat that keeps the fan running until the unit has cooled down and on some models there is a four wire timing device that keeps the fan running for a specific time after the temperature drops, the fault can only be casued by one of these components.
