Question about Ovens

How do you remove the element from a Smeg se335 single oven? There appear to be 2 hexagonal fixing studs however I can't get anything to grip on to them and they are tiny, smaller than the smallest bits I have that I thought would work.

    Thanks, I resigned myself to that last night and it looks like its a combination needed. The fixing studs appear to have a shallow 7/32 hexagonal head (I have a 6 and an 8, typical) that is too shallow for me to get a grip on with anything else. Removing these will allow removal of the element, however the back panel needs removed as suggested as rather than fitting into a simple socket, the element is connected with some rather basic butterfly clamp/clips.

    Rather poor design from a servicing perspective. Looks like a school project in there.

If it is a built in oven, then you are going to have to remove it from the housing, and gain access to the element from the rear of the oven by removing the rear panel of oven.

    Thanks for the response, its a combination approach required. The element is fixed with 2 studs that have shallow 7/32 hexagonal studs (I have a 1/4 and a 3/16, the sizes on either side, typical). These can be removed from the front however before the element can be removed the back panel needs to be removed as the element isn't in a socket but attached to very basic clips on the end of the relevant wires.

    It's a poor solution from a servicing perspective. It's also quite a poor design generally now that I've opened it up. There is no consistency in the use of screws/studs and numerous sizes are used for no clear reason. It looks like a school science project.

    I have SA301X Smeg oven and fun element needs to be replaced, same as yours 2 studs are sitting and to me they look flat head round buttons and no grip. So it is impossible to replace it without getting expensive service...... unbelievable..

The oven is not heating up. How can I fix this problem?


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.

It would appear that the main oven element is not working. I had a power cut whilst using the oven recently and have only just realised that the oven will not heat up. Everything else is working ok. If it...


If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown

Changing Smeg SA280X/1 fan motor, shaft nut stuck?


Most fan blades are held on by a single nut, which is usualy a left hand thread, so to unscrew it you turn it clockwise as though you are tightening it up.and to tighten it,anticlockwise..
If the spindle turns, then you will have to hold it with a pair of grips or similar.
Plz rate my solution.
Thabks.

SMEG CC92MFX5 STAINLESS STEEL SIDE BY SIDE OVEN


Two things sharyn, first check the breakers. It is possible that one of two that control the stove tripped...they are in tandem. Shut them off and back on. If no fix: You'll have to remove and test the element. (if more than one element is involved here...it might be the thermostat) Breakers off, pull the element out and have someone take an ohm meter and test the unit. Still no good? Then it will be the thermostat or relay. Let me know what you find.
