SMEG SA398X/1 Electric oven heating problem

We recently moved into a house with above oven installed.

After a few test I came up with the following:

1. If any "fan assisted" setting is selected the oven takes more than an hour to heat up. After appr. 60 min. the temp was 60deg C and didn't seem to increase.

2. If any conventional (without fan) setting is selected the oven heats up to the set temp within 10min. (which I think is normal)

3. If after the 'set' temp is reached (as done in nr 2.) any "fan assisted" function is selected the temp drops down till again around 50 -60 deg. in a couple of minutes.

HELP or any suggestions would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

the ring element may have blown. if it works ok with the top and bottom elements, (the convection oven) then it is likely the element surrounding the oven fan.

On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

first of all the yellow/orange light glowing is a known fault. it needs a slight wiring modification to fix it, however it dose not affect the operation of the oven nor is it dangerous.
now to the heating problem, there is a round element at the rear witch surrounds the fan. is this element getting hot? if not then it most likely needs replacing. it could be the thermostat but more likely the element.

probably the element. to save wasting money, check continuity with a multimeter

Sounds like you need a new oven element fitting.

The light and fan works but no heat comes on in oven.


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.
