The clips on these oven are canyilver type they can move out of position if opened abruptly .to refit correctly lift door upwards while pushing the bottom of the door inwards.you should feeel a strong resistance from the door springs.there should be a notch n the bottom of the hinge this should slot over the oven frame.if this does not solve the problem then the springs have probably gone on the hinges and will need to replace both hinge assemblies

Smeg large oven, takes a lifetime to pre heat, I have changed the seal on the door but it hasn't made a difference, any suggestions?


Don't know 'bout yours but have you tried the old tea towel in the corners trick to see if its the hinge alignment and not the seal? Put two tea towels in the lower corners sticking out of the oven part way and push the oven door closed a few times. Saved me from trying to replace the seal on my Miele.

Door and handle problems. Smeg fa311x


sounds like your door is sprung. take door off and lay flat on a table outside of the door down. loosen screws on door liner . screws are hidden under door seal. when all loose not removed make sure door is flat on table. tighten the screws being careful not to move door. reinstall door and it should be ok. this is usually cause be either someone leaning or hanging on the door when it is open. or putting to heavy of items in the door trays.

The house I've just bought has a Smeg 60 cm wall oven installed. Possibly 4-5 yrs old. I can't get it to work. An orange light comes on on the door panel when the temp control is turned on. Light goes...


Most of these ovens have two fans. A fan forced fan in the oven and a cavity extractor fan inside the cavity of the unit between the outer skin and the oven wall. The cavity fan blows hot cavity air out the front of the unit so it remains cool. If the orange indicator light is coming on this would normally be the oven element thermostat. Leave it on and see if it gets hot. If the light goes off when you select the function switch it means you are turning it off the oven function. Your interior oven light may be blown.
Hope this helps.

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.


Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

Loose Oven door handle


Hi,
You may have to get some loctite brand paste in a tube for applying to the threads of the bolts that hold it on.
This will prevent the screws from loosening.
Another way would be to get some spring washers or star washers at your local hardware store such as menards.
