If this is a hood vent turn off the power to it from the fuse panel and open the panel and remove and replace the wire connectors one at a time looking for a wire that was not quite on right

Our electric convection oven heats up and when you open the door and close again it no longer heats, fan stays on and the light goes on when door open and off when door is closed, any ideas?? Thanks

Hi, You can look at the micro switch on the oven door, sounds like it might have been installed on a normally open auxiliary rather than a normally closed aux. hope this helps

No power to cooker hood

Should be on a separate breaker, sometimes wired to a clock/fridge circuit. Check all breakers. I have seen people wire them to a GFCI outlet as well, not supposed to, but people still do it. Check for 120Vac at the fan and light switches, if its ther your switch is bad, it not there cicuit is not connected to power supply.

The house I've just bought has a Smeg 60 cm wall oven installed. Possibly 4-5 yrs old. I can't get it to work. An orange light comes on on the door panel when the temp control is turned on. Light goes...

Most of these ovens have two fans. A fan forced fan in the oven and a cavity extractor fan inside the cavity of the unit between the outer skin and the oven wall. The cavity fan blows hot cavity air out the front of the unit so it remains cool. If the orange indicator light is coming on this would normally be the oven element thermostat. Leave it on and see if it gets hot. If the light goes off when you select the function switch it means you are turning it off the oven function. Your interior oven light may be blown.
Hope this helps.

We have a fan oven, which started not heating, but fan and thermostat light still on! We thought it was the element! But now the oven is working very occasionally, still heating as normal! We can try to...


Elements don't heat intermittently - if the element is good it will heat up every time. If the element is blown / burnt-out it wont ever heat.

As your oven is heating sometimes but not others, this means the power supply to the element has an interruption somewhere. This could be caused by any of the following:

1. Loose connection in the wiring at the switch or the element
2. Faulty switch
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Faulty oven timer

The thermostat is effectively just a heat-sensitive switch. By default it should be "closed" allowing power to the element. When the oven reaches the desired temperature, this switch opens, cutting power to the element until the oven cools enough for the switch to close and allow power to the element again.

Any of these four could be the cause of your fault. Loose connections can often by located visually, however testing a thermostat for correct operation and calibration is more complicated and ideally requires test equipment. The timer is the least likely cause, so I would concentrate on the others first.

Repairing your oven or any other electrical appliance can be dangerous and many repairs require specialist knowledge and/or electrical test equipment. Please bear this in mind before and when attempting any repair or consider having your appliance professionally inspected.

If you are intending to investigate this problem yourself, please ensure the power is disconnected at the wall/breaker first. Initially, I suggest that you visually check the connections at the element and the switch. You may find a wire at one of these locations that is partially broken or detached. Personally, I suspect your thermostat may be faulty.

Hope this helps.

Need a user manual for a Hygena diplomat oven model AHY 3420 any ideas please?


I have a manual for AHY3420, it's a very generic manual which covers different ovens. I am happy to send you a scanned copy if you send me an e-mail address.

I have the same oven and all the symbols have disappeared on the third dial (the one which switches on the oven), so I still haven't worked out which setting does what - I can just about make out a grill symbol, but that's about it. Is there any chance you could tell me what the symbols are on the 3rd dial?

Thanks very much.

3rd blown element

no connection between lights on fan. problem is that bulbs these days are poor quality (but cheap)
it is common for these circular elements to go. usually last about 2 years. worth checking tho that fan is turning at right speed

Smeg electric oven

your neighbour is probably right. fan should work but if the element has disintegrated, bits of the element could be jamming the fan. take the rear panel off inside the oven and check
