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

SOURCE: Fan assist wont heat oven

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.

Hi, the oven is not working in my Creda Collection freestanding cooker. I have had the element tested and proved to be ok. Also the fan does not move. The timer is set to manual. Can you assist?


If the element is okay and the element and fan aren't working together then it will be a problem further up the line. The next question I would normally ask is is the electronic timer in manual mode. When you turn the oven on does the oven indicator light come on?

Noisy oven


Probably the fan bearing is worn out, looks like you will need a new fan.

Make sure there is not any obvious visual obstruction.

If the fan is working o/k then the oven element is probably faulty, this should be at the rear of the oven behind a removeabkle cover.
Make sure you have the control set to grill , for grilling

Omega Europa 20-1 oven. What do the symbols mean?


Fan symbol - defrost (fan only - does not use thermostat)
Fan symbol within a circle - fan forced oven
3 little triangles - static grill (keep oven door open)
3 triangles above the fan symbol - fan grill (keep door closed)

Omega europa 40-1 oven settings?


I had the same problem when I moved into my current apartment (mine's the 20-1 model). I was at a loss as to what all those symbols meant, so emailed info@hagemeyer.com.au and they sent me a pdf copy of the manual. It's not exactly the same model as you have, but I assume the symbols are the same. I'm happy to email you my manual if you'd like. Otherwise, the controls (for the 20-1 at least) are as follows:

Fan symbol - defrost (fan only - does not use thermostat)
Fan symbol within a circle - fan forced oven
3 little triangles - static grill (keep oven door open)
3 triangles above the fan symbol - fan grill (keep door closed)

I hope that all makes sense.

Neff B1432 oven element and fan not working


If the element has failed again in such a short time , then I would suspect that the fan is the culprit.
If the fan is not working, then the element overheats, and burns itself out.
The fact that the fan spins freely, proves nothing, as the fan can be still faulty.
The only way to prove if the fan is faulty, is to remove the oven from the housing, and remove the rear outer panel of oven,.test with a meter set to ac mains and test the fan motor terminals to see if there is power there when oven is set to heat, disconnect the element first. ,if there is ,and the fan is not running then the motor is faulty..
If there is no voltage there, then problem is elsewhere, and you will have to investigate furher.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
