    Obviously following the cleaning you will again have to re-set the clock as per your manual to get the ovens to work. Add a Comment

Had a similar problem over a year ago on my Rangemaster, neither of the ovens would come on, only the gas hob worked.
The cost of a new display unit was around £100 plus so decided to check out the unit by removing it (it was quite easy to do; but remember to isloate the cooker from the mains before you start dismantling).
On my display there were six wires plugged into it. I marked each one and the display before removing them so that they all went back to the correct location (i am not an electrician and am therefore an electrical numpty).
Firstly I degreased each male and female connector using an electrical spray degreaser/cleaner and then cleaned them using very fine emery paper and a special pen with glassfibre bristles until they gleamed and then gave them a final spray to remove any debrie left by the cleaning process.
Before i put everything back i also cleaned all the connectors to the switches etc which were accessable in a similar manner; about another eight/ten in total.
Following reassembly and switching the power back everything started working again. All this work took about an hour and my cooker has been working fine for the last 12 months.

Smeg linear oven is displaying sho (showroom mode) and will not heat up. I have held down function knob for 5 seconds which clears SHO from display but within seconds it comes back. Any ideas


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  • If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  • When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Oven does not work! temperature display goes very fast and won't stop to higest temp


You have a bad control board and oven temperature sensor. I highly recommend disconnecting the power source until the repair is made.

I push the bake button for the lower oven and it begins to beep and displays a F9 on the digital display


Hi

F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

When using the oven the electicity tripped; after resetting the breaker the oven does not appear to get hot; however the grill works, the light works and the fan works what could be the problem?


Sounds like the oven element has gone. When these elements go they often short against the outside casing of the element which is earthed (or should be). This trips the main trip switch in the house. Having tripped and cooled down, the element is now broken inside & won't heat up. Usually 2 screws to remove, either inside oven or outside at back. Element usually taken out thro oven. Take it & cooker info to your dealer & ask for replacement. Shouldn't cost much.
