Re: Smeg oven door off hinges

Go to the last couple of pages on the pdf...I found that the little notch on the bottom part of the hinge fitted on the outside edge of the slot - not as it appeared (to me) on an internal sort of bar. Looked at the smaller of the two ovens and its the same (doh! only made sence when I looked at the diagram!!)

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
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.
• 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.

Smoke come up from bottom of 3-month new smeg oven SA702X when try to heat up


Smoke coming from the oven is not normal. Ensure that the smoke is not vapour coming from the food inside the oven.

If there is vapour coming from the hinge area, then ensure that door and hinges are installed properly.

If you get smoke from the oven, try cleaning the oven cavity, follow the instructions on manual to clean the oven.

If after cleaning the oven, there is still smoke coming from the bottom side, then call Smeg and have the oven replaced. There is one or two years warranty on the appliance.
Smeg support and service phone number is listed in the oven manual.

Replaced hinge on smeg double oven but now oven doesn't heat

I have the SMEG F170-5 and had this problem after cleaning and replacing the door. It wouldn't heat unless I banged it shut. This action made the internal switch trigger, so I had to remove the oven (4 screws, slide out) and remove the right side panel (4 screws). The switch is actuated by the right hinge strut and it must have become bent slightly. I bent it a bit towards the door so that it would just a little bit more likely to make the switch trigger with the door closed and it now works fine.

Hi I have just installed this oven SA995XR-5 yesterday and have the manual. It doesn't say anywhere it is self-cleaning, just good old elbow grease. Below is what is in the manual.

*I have a question for you. Does the cooling fan in your oven go all the time or does it stop some time after the oven has been turned off (which is what the manual indicates it is supposed to do)?

7.Cleaning and Maintenance
Before performing any operations requiring access to powere parts, switch off the power supply to the machine.
7.1 Cleaning stainless steel
To keep Stainless stell in good condition it should be cleaned regularly after use. Let it cool first.
7.1.1 Ordinary Daily Cleaning
To clean and preserve the stainless steel surfaces always use only specific products that do not contain abrasives or chlorine-based acids.
How to use: pour the product on a damp cloth and wipe the surface, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth or deerskin.
7.1.2 Food stains or residues
Do not use metallic sponges or shapr scrapers: they will damage the surface.
Use normal non-abrasive products for steel and a wooden or plastic tool if necessary.
Do not allow residues of suraty foods (suc as jam) to set inside the oven. If left ot set for too long, they might damage the enamel lining of the oven.
7.2 Cleaning of the oven
To best oven upkeep clean regularly after having allowed to cool, Take out all removable parts
  • Clean the oven grill and side guides with hot water and non-abrasiev detergent, Rinse and dry.
  • The oven should be operated at the maximum temperature for about 15/20 minuytes after using specific products, to eliminate the residue deposited inside the oven.
  • For easier cleaning, the door can be removed.(8.2)
7.3 Door Glass
The door glass should always be kept clean. Use absorbent kitchen paper to clean. In case of tough spots, clean with a damp sponge using regular detergent.
8.2 Removing
Hold the door on both sides with both hands near hinges (A - there is a diagram showing this is the top hinge) and raise levers (B - this lever is a little arm attached to bottom hinge. Flick it up until it catches into groove on upper hinge. Its quite uncomplicated). Lift up the door forming an angle of about 45 degrees and remove. To refit, slide the hinges A in the grooves, drop door and release levers B.
8.3 Oven door seal
To permit thorough cleaning of the oven, the seal may be removed. Before the seal, take off the door as described above. Once the door has been taken off, left the tabs at the corners as shown in the figure.
After cleaning, refit the seal with the longer side horizontal and insert the tabs into the appropriate holes starting from the top ones.

i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges
you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back.
lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges.
this requires considerable strength

Smeg Double Oven SD08

this can be hard to do as you should have locked the hinges with the door fully opened before taking it off. the hard part now is (with the door off) you have to push the spring loaded hinges down and lock them with small hook located on each hinge once locked the door will go back on the oven. you then open the door fully and unlock the hinges, good luck
