I took this off to clean it and for the life of me cannot get it back in place, any ideas out there?
I have taken the door off my Smeg oven to clean it and am unable to replace it. I have followed the instructions in the book let but am unable to get the bottom hinges to attach.

you have to push the hinge down and lock it you will need a screwdriver and turn the round disc the one will the slot in this will hold the hinge down do this both sides of the door and put the door back resting into the oven and then turn the slotted discs and that should do the job
Yes, I have had the same problem. The light in the bottom oven stayed on and the oven did not work after taking off the oven door SOLUTION: I didn't put the oven doo back on properly. Take it off and try again!
Smoke coming from the oven is not normal. Ensure that the smoke is not vapour coming from the food inside the oven.
If there is vapour coming from the hinge area, then ensure that door and hinges are installed properly.
If you get smoke from the oven, try cleaning the oven cavity, follow the instructions on manual to clean the oven.
If after cleaning the oven, there is still smoke coming from the bottom side, then call Smeg and have the oven replaced. There is one or two years warranty on the appliance. Smeg support and service phone number is listed in the oven manual.
I have the SMEG F170-5 and had this problem after cleaning and replacing the door. It wouldn't heat unless I banged it shut. This action made the internal switch trigger, so I had to remove the oven (4 screws, slide out) and remove the right side panel (4 screws). The switch is actuated by the right hinge strut and it must have become bent slightly. I bent it a bit towards the door so that it would just a little bit more likely to make the switch trigger with the door closed and it now works fine.
We removed the front glass of our oven door after a big spill between the two glass sections (by blunt force!). Since it took us 4 hours to put back together, we wanted to spread the info in case any others have the misfortune to make this mistake! Note, I wouldn't do this unless you have to, just incase you can't get your door back together again.
Assuming the back sheet of oven glass is still in position, but the front sheet is not attached -
1. Follow the manual instructions to remove the door, ensuring that both hinges are locked fully (otherwise you won't be able to get the door back on easily)
2. Once the door is removed, ensure that the plastic spacers that hold the two sheets of glass apart are in original position, resting on the inner door, at the bottom corners of the tempered glass
3. Remove the narrow metal strip at the bottom of the inner door by unscrewing the 3 screws that hold it in place. This is the metal groove that the outer pane of glass needs to rest in
4. Lay the outer sheet of glass in position in this metal strip
5. Lay the outer sheet of glass over the inner door. Slot the outer sheet into position at the top of the inner door first, ensuring it is layed flush at the top.
6. A second person needs to ease the metal strip back into place at the bottom of the inner door, so that the two sheets of glass are now held together at both top and bottom.
7. Screw the metal strip back into position with the 3 screws
8. Follow the manual instructions to replace the door. Ensure that the small grooves at the bottom of both hinges are resting in position correctly, otherwise the door will not close flushly.
i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back. lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges. this requires considerable strength
this can be hard to do as you should have locked the hinges with the door fully opened before taking it off. the hard part now is (with the door off) you have to push the spring loaded hinges down and lock them with small hook located on each hinge once locked the door will go back on the oven. you then open the door fully and unlock the hinges, good luck
Yeah I was stumped with this for a short time as it isnt imediately obvious.
The bottom of the two brackets has a flip up catch, place these in the upright position and with some force hook the upper bracket into these catches (please ensure you keep your face and hands away from the direction of the spring)
Once you have the two brackets held open offer up the door at exactly 45 degrees (notice the notch on the underside of both lower brackets) locate this notch on the door hinge hole studs.
Once this is done and your certain it is in the correct postion lower the door from 45 degrees to 90 degrees, put some pressure on the door slightly past 90 degrees and carefully fold down the flip up catches that are holding the upper brackets.
