Question about Ovens

My fan doesn't seem to stop at all (Smeg oven). If I switch off the fuse on the main switchboard it stops, fuse back on - fan runs again, even if I leave it off for one night. Can anybody help?

Sounds like the fan element is out. This is common with this oven. It should rely be replaced by a qualified technician but here are the steps.
Before working or removing any part of the appliance the electrical power supply must be turned off and the appliance is disconnected from the power supply. Please also make sure that all the oven function switches are in the off position ( please consult your user hand book) before removing any of the covers or touching any of the wiring. Please note that failure to turn off the electrical supply before working on the appliance or disconnecting can result in electrical shocks which can cause death.
The fan element is fitted to the rear of the oven cavity. To replace the element will require that the rear cover of the cavity to be removed to expose the fan element. (please test to make sure there is no power to the appliance/element using a meter before touching the connections) Depending on the age of your smeg appliance the fan element can be removed by undoing the fixing screws (new models only) within the oven cavity. On older models the rear oven casing will have to be removed to gain access to the fixing screws at the rear of the appliance. Once the screws have been removed make a note of the wiring then disconnect the wiring . Replace the element with the new one reconnect the wiring as per your notes and re-fix the element in place using the fixing screws replace any of the covers that you removed to gain access to the appliance. Once the new element has been fitted and the covers are back on you can now turn on the power to test that the element is now working correctly by selecting the fan oven function.

    The element itself is around $70usd. Replacement will vary. I would get several quotes. The economy is down right now. You might find a good tech out of work and willing to do some side work for a bit cheaper. The good news is that this is a solid reliable oven once this issue gets resolved as this is the one defect that tends to "haunt" this 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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Oven Over Heat


Not sure if this is relevant but, have you set the clock correctly?  The oven will cut off if it's cooking on a timer.
