Disclaimer: I don't know this particular model, but in general, tumble dryers have 2 or 3 interlock switches that need to be checked:
1. Door interlock: this allows the drum motor and fan to energise and the heating element to be turned on: Does drum turn and fan come on? If so, it is not this.
2. Overheat switch: located in exhaust path of fan: usually re-settable - have you located this and reset it?
3. Humidity sensor (some models have this, some work on time only) - this can fail open circuit and the drum and fan won't come on. (Same check as number 1)

Heating elements in fan oven not working


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 won't heat


The heating element may be worn out or loose. Are both the broil (upper) and bake (lower elements) failing to heat? If so, you will probably need to call a professional. If only one of the elements is failing to heat, it will need to be replaced. This is usually a simple matter of tugging firmly on the element and it will slip out of its housing. Once you purchase a replacement element you just plug in back into the housing. You can buy the elements at appliance parts stores. I would suggest calling an appliance parts store and asking them IF you can remove the element yourself. If they know they're about to make a sale, they don't mind giving you the information.

My heating element is not working. How can I get a replacement.


I experienced the same problem. My heating element was not working. After a Continuity Test, the Heating Coil was dead and needs replacement. I asked Masterbuilt if any heating coil replacement parts were available. They said "no", but they could offer a discounted sale on a new Smoker for about $175.00. I am still looking. A local appliance dealer said the internet was the most likely place to find one. After looking on the internet, I can't seem to find one yet. If you know of any, please let me know. Call (616) 772-1332 and ask for Bob. Thanks

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter


Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.

A grounded element on an electric dryer is an element that has broken and the element heating wire has touched something metal, like the cage that is suppose to hold the element or the element metal housing around the element. What this does is, the element only heats on the section that is touching the metal part and usually this part of the element is only heating at about 1/2 heat output. An grounded element can also stay on even when the dryer is not in use!!
