Smeg SUK81mfx5 fan oven problem

I have a Smeg SUK81mfx5 range cooker. We inherited the item when we moved into our new house, and the oven never heated up when the fan oven was selected. I ordered a new fan element, and having been advised it was a simple task, fitted it myself with no problems - took photos of where all the wires went etc and double checked everything before switching on. The problem is that now the fan oven heats up, but keeps heating up to maximum irrespective of the thermostat setting. The thermostat itself functions fine, as it does its job alright on the other types of oven setting - and you can hear the switch clicking on and off when you sweep the dial. Any ideas anyone?

SUK81MFX5 oven light stays on permantly


Can be the micro switch. With mine, the oven door was put back incorrectly and part of the hinge pushed the metal lever that activates the switch upward, and jammed it there. You need to get a bit of wire and hook it down again so that it covers the switch.

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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Smoke from oven


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years sounds like pure coincidence, check the fan for circuit at terminals, and / or check for movement of blades, that you have not got fan jammed, replace fan motor unit if needed, still cheaper than a call out if i have helped rate me work with safety all the time, unplug at all times when working on any item
