Well it may be the breaker that the oven is connected to, overheating the switch and tripping it. Try replacing the breaker switch (main breaker box in the house rv) is the best thing, but you can place a small fan from say a old computer or laptop conected to a old cellphone charger, there both dc powered. Just make sure that when you fix it to the breaker switch you leave plenty of room for the switch to trip if it has to ' to avoid house fires'. I had to do this one year because the heater I plugged in was over loading my breaker and had to Jerry rig a old computer processor fan to keep it cool while heating that area of my house
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.
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
Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
You probably have a bad ( or open ) heating element.. With the power removed.. look at the heating element and make sure it is connected properly and if after you check that it looks ok.. plug it in and try again.. if it fails to get hot..its probably bad.. Not sure what you mean when you say ' IT TRIPPED THE ELECTRIC SWITCH OFF AT THE TIME' but if it tripped the switch or circuit breaker .. your heating element may be shorting out to ground.. and would need to be replaced anyway... Hope that helps.
the electric went off wasnt sure why at the time but when i reset the trip fuse my oven stopped heating up so somethingobviously blew in the oven to cause the the elctrics to trip,
does anyone know how to replace the heating element, also the fan on the top isnt working either
