Lights come on inside cooker. Fan comes on but the temperature remains at nil.
Is this a probelm with the thermostat or could it be something else. The Cany man wants £96 just to come and have a look.

Re: Cooker not heating to rquired temperature
Your electronic control may be at fault. It receives a signal from the oven sensor probe tosence what the temperature is. The best way to rule out a possible bad oven sensor is to remove the 2 screws on the oven sensor (in the oven cavity) and pull gently on it until the wiring connector appears, then disconnect the plastic connector. Use your OHM meter to check resistance on the probe terminals. A probe at room temperature will register about 1040 to 1125 OHMs if good. If good, the electronics controlling the oven temperature would be the problem.

If there are no lights showing or electric fan or heat
Check the cooker trip / fuse on the main Fuseboard.
Should be 32 amp rating.
If Light works / or / and Fan but no heat then likely to be Cooker element. If its a double element or oven with grill you may still have reduced capacity to heat / cook food.
NO NEVER EVER DISCONNECT FANS OR ANYTHING ELSE ON YOUR COOKER.
Your cooker may have at least two fans, one for heating the oven cavity and one for cooling the electrics etc inside the oven. If the fan is noisy, check to see the fan has not come loose on the motor (maybe left had thread) if the fan is ok, then the fan motor may need replacing!
In a simple oven, this could be be due to a heavy current due to a fault (check with resistance meter) or if the resistance is OK the tripping could be cased by an 'earth leakage' which typically presents when an appliance is damp or a heating element has not been used for a while...
Hi guess you would have got your cooker fixed or replaced by now but I thought I would comment as we have had the same problem.
First I checked the bulb inside the cooker to see if there was a fault but the bulb was intact, I then checked the cooker over visually inspecting suspect broken parts I noticed the Thermosat control (3rd in from left hand side) wasn't turning properly so I ordered a new one. Couple days later it arrives and I remove the old switch and replace (very simple task) once the cooker is apart I get it all back together and it still doesn't work. So I grab my multi tester and perform a continuity test on the elements which proved to be normal range (43ohms was the reading). I was stumped. I began checking the whole cooker wiring and checking everywhere for a fault. After some time I notice a abnormality inside the main cooker control (2nd from the left hand side). Under closer inspection I realise one of the brass pins and spring has dislodged and no longer giving an electical connection. After ordering a new switch I stripped the old one and replace the pin and spring and rebuilt for a temporary fix. Rebuild the cooker and hey presto it works. Couple days later new switch arrives so I changed them over. Touch wood nothing else goes wrong but there's not much to them once they are apart.
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.
