Question about Smeg S1100MFX5 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Symbols I was cleaning my oven when I knocked a button (not sure which one). Since that time the oven has failed to work. The oven still blows out cold air and the fan does not move. Also all of the print of the buttons on the oven has come off presumably from some cleaning products used over time. How can I get my oven to work again when I want it to? Please help.

Oven will not unlock after self clean

Unfortunately, the high temperature limit sensor probably failed during the self-clean cycle. The oven control unit will not receive the signal that the oven is cool enough to unlock the door without the sensor.

If the oven is cool, you can try unplugging the oven for a while and then see if the oven unlocks after power is restored. Pressing the Cancel button several times (or pressing and holding Cancel, depending on the model) may also work. Sometimes, starting a new cleaning cycle and then stopping it (and waiting for the oven to cool) will work.

However if the sensor has failed, the above steps are unlikely to work. You can try to move the lock manually. On some models, you can use a bent coat hanger to slide between the oven door and the frame and push the lock over. On other units, you might open the back panel and rotate the lock mechanism cam.

The oven will not work until the high temperature sensor is replaced. Sometimes the lock mechanism fails and that is what needs to be replaced. If the oven works, then look at replacing the lock motor.

I hope this helps. If your oven is under warranty, contact GE for the repair. Please add a comment with the model of your unit for specific information on the parts you may need.

After using self cleaning feature...oven door locks up...4th time this has happened...kitchenaid says "no known issues with your unit or the problem you reported...can you halp

Hello - we have had this same issue a number of times as well. Do you lose all power on the unit too? We do - have discovered that using the self-cleaning isn't really a good idea with these ovens. The ovens aren't really made to heat to such high heats that are used in the cleaning cycle and during that last hour of cleaning it hits it highest peak - and it blows it's fuses. We recently blew 2 fuses at the same time, locking both doors (Double oven) and knocking out the power for the entire unit. Our repair man said that the average on wall ovens is anywhere between 6 - 12 cleanings before you will blow the same fuses and the whole cycle starts all over again. Our expense was $350. So, self-cleaning now means elbow grease around this house. How this information was a bit helpful for you.

I have a Zanussi oven without a manual. It has a rectangular screen with 9 buttons below it. It has numerous symbols for cooking and I have no idea what some of the symbols mean. Can anyone give me a...

I can tell you what the buttons are for but really you may need to get in touch with your local dealer or Electrolux to either get a hard copy or download one from their website.
Starting from the left is your main power button.
Then the oven function button.The next one is the fast heat up/defrost function.Next is the temp. control/current temp.Next the two with + and _ control time or temp.Next is the minute minder.Next is cooking time.
Finally the last one inicates end of cooking time.

We are about to move into a house with a Ariston wall oven, model no: FB 86 C. All the symbols around the 2 knobs have been rubbed off, is there a transfer or someway of finding what the symbols should...

This is a normal feature for this brand. The decal comes off when cleaning with anything other than pure water. They will sell you a whole new oven front for about $100 so you can do it again next time you wipe down the front panel when cleaning your work top. Please complain to Ariston head office and tell them what you think of their product. The manual doesn't show the detail so I guess you will have to buy either a proper oven or get ripped off by Ariston for a new panel ( you could always send the new panel back after copying the letters). I'll never buy an Ariston product again.

We cleaned the fan oven and now it doesnt work


I have come accross this problem many times. ----always when it has been cleaned. Somehow the cleaner coats the element and creates a hot spot. This will cause it to trip the electric as soon a s its switched on or after the element has been on for a while!!

You may be able to remove the back cover ( the one you see when you open the oven door) and gain access to the element. Try and clean it with a damp cloth. If this fails then the only solution is a new element. You havent mentioned make so i cant price one up for you.

My email address is if you weant more information.

Oven pilot keeps going out - range working fine

probably the pilot light jet is plugged up. A wire brush or a single stiff wire (like from a bread tie) will clean out the jet.

blow out the pilot light (if it's not out already) and poke around the jet with the wire to knock out the accumulated build up.
