Not too common at all.Tough call ,you really can't hold the tenant at fault,replace the over priced clock and inform the tenant that the next one THEY will have to pay for.

I have this oven in a tenanted unit as well, and had the same issue. Tenant grilled with door oven, melted the clock where the buttons no longer moved. Pulled the buttons out, used a drill to very slightly drill out some of the plastic socket that holds the buttons, but now the buttons are too loose and fall out. Still better then buttons not working at all.

I had the same problem. You need to keep the door closed when you use the grill, otherwise danger of melting clock. It happened to my oven.

Smeg linear oven is displaying sho (showroom mode) and will not heat up. I have held down function knob for 5 seconds which clears SHO from display but within seconds it comes back. Any ideas


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.

Smeg oven is "locked", needs unlocking or resetting


Use a flashlight and look into the hole from where you normally feel hot airflow. Locate the hook holding the door on the left side. Using a thin screwdriver or a knife gently push the hook to the left. Voila! The door is open and functions are back working normally. Also known as Error 4 interlock problem. This will depends on the model of the oven

SMEG SA410X-S heat not coming on for fan forced cooking. The fan and light work, and the heat works fine for grilling.


The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch. If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.

Smeg oven SE399X/5 - digital clock issue


I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue. My husband had the grill on too high and melted the buttons, I thought they weren't going in because of that but we've got new buttons and they're working at one side of the clock and not the other. For the meantime, you can get a thin screwdriver, or something, and poke it through the holes where the buttons would go to substitue. That will get it working in the short term.
