Question about Smeg SE399X/5 Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Oven Not Working


My Smeg oven won't come on at all. There are no digits appearing in the clock display, other than a small A for 'Automatic'. No time is visible at all. If I turn both swithces (mode and temp) to off, the orange thermostat light comes on when I open the oven door. If I turn either switch to on, it does not come on. The oven does not heat up and there is no movement from the fan. I have tried turning power off to the oven but this does not change anything.

Check that the oven is on the 'manual cooking' setting rather than Automatic, if its on Auto it will not come on until the time set.

Oven will not switch on

If there is an A only on the clock(no other digits) your clock has failed. Either replace , or can be bypassed. Oven won't work without clock set.

Smeg oven SE399X/5 - digital clock issue

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue. My husband had the grill on too high and melted the buttons, I thought they weren't going in because of that but we've got new buttons and they're working at one side of the clock and not the other. For the meantime, you can get a thin screwdriver, or something, and poke it through the holes where the buttons would go to substitue. That will get it working in the short term.
