Question about Ovens

Cannot switch off oven fan.

I turned on the oven and there was flash, the light globe had blown, also the safety switch tripped. I changed the globe and turned power back on. The fan and the light came on by themselves without me turning the oven on. Now I cannot turn fan off without switching the main at the meter box.

SOURCE: Fuse blew on opening main door; main oven not heating; everything else ok

I agree with earlier diagnosis.
It will be the fan element blown.

SOURCE: bottom oven not working

A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.

SOURCE: my oven is saying

Previous fault F02 is indicating an overheat fault- service manual says to replace main electronic control board. However, switching off at wall has reset the clock- you need to set the time before the oven will work-press middle button until small triangle is next to clock icon, set time using temperature dial. Once clock has ben set, try using oven to see if F02 fault reappears- sometimes switching off at wall will clear fault. Good luck!!

Have replaced burnt-out element in main oven. Red light comes on when control turned, but no fan or heat.


an open circuit indicates infinity which means no ohms and what the element should read is a closed circuit. open is bad and needs replacement as for the no fan check for loose wire or power issue also might want to check for a blown fuse

Went to switch oven on fan works when you turn the temp knob it trips the trip switch every time help


HI, Sounds like your from the UK
If you are referring to a trip switch as being equivalent to an American circuit breaker. (Electrical safety device designed to shut down power to an electrical appliance). Then we are on the same page.
Do the following diagnostic procedure:
1 SHUT DOWN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE OVEN. I.E. THE TRIP SWITCH/CIRCUIT BREAKER.
2 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced. It is probably tripping the switch because it is shorting out somewhere. There is also the possibility that the internal wiring connectors to where the element is mounted into the oven walls is broken off and short circuiting against the oven chassis (walls). That being the case, it may be just a wiring repair in which you install new appropriate electrical contacts and re-connect the element.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

My wife was cleaning our smeg. She removed element at top of oven and she said it "arked". Now light inside oven and oven itself doesnt work?


Your oven should be wired to a dedicated electrical switch, in your meter box. It has probably just tripped this switch and fused the globe.
remove the globe cover(quater turn anti-clockwise) and globe and reset switch. Of course you need also to set the digital clock, or oven will not work.
