Question about Smeg SE399X/5 Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Smeg oven is "locked", needs unlocking or resetting

Our SMEG oven. S399X-6< seems to be locked or something. The 6 is blinking, but all the oven functions are not working. The only thing which works is the clock.
I think a reset or unlock it would do the job. But does anybody know how this can be done. It is not in the manual.
Thanks for your help!

Use a flashlight and look into the hole from where you normally feel hot airflow. Locate the hook holding the door on the left side. Using a thin screwdriver or a knife gently push the hook to the left. Voila! The door is open and functions are back working normally. Also known as Error 4 interlock problem. This will depends on the model of the oven

SOURCE: Our smeg oven is not

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.

SOURCE: smeg oven not working. only clock and thermostat light working

It sounds like you have either one of the following things that need attention. First, turn off both breakers to the oven and then back on. Next check the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. Next, check your internal fuses. Most ovens have them. Last, check the wiring to the elements and control switches. Somewhere you have a wire burned off the terminals or control switch. That smell you referred to is probably one of the wires that may be burned.

SOURCE: smeg oven model SA708X--Clock faulty

hi, if you have a faulty clock it is likely the relay in the clock is stuffed you could try to repair it but i think you are better off just buying a new clock, clocks are expensive thou, so bypassing is a good choice

I have a new (about 7 months old) SMEG SAP112-8 60cm Linear Pyrolytic Oven. The knob to turn the oven on does not seem to work. You usually push it in (and meet some resistance) to turn the oven on, then...

We have experienced the same problem. We have a service tech coming to fix it. The knob has come off. It seems that the internal spring has dislodged itself. This will be claimed under warranty. Ours is 5 months old. Our other Linear combo oven and coffee machine seem to be more solid/sturdy.

Smeg F170P-5 Oven

Models with analogue/digital programmer feature a "DEMO" function which deactivates the heating elements while leaving the other functions unchanged. To activate it, simply press the bell (minute minder), - and + keys for 3/4 seconds. A confirmation beep will inform the user that the function is active. To deactivate it, simply repeat the same procedure. This worked for my Smeg SC399X-6.

Smeg oven problem

The pop would usually mean a busted fuse. Turn off the oven, disconnect completely from the power supply and then take it apart. See if you can find any toasted fuse or roasted wires. Also the reason for tripping the mains off is due to the fact that the oven is draining more power than it should. I would recommend a thorough inspection of the oven by an electrician..
