The fan symbols would normally indicate that the fan forced fan will come on when this setting is selected. The fan symbol is normally displayed with other symbols which depict different fan/element combinations.
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.
I dont know if this helps but if you turn the dial to the different settings and leave if for 5 to 10 minutes between testing you should be able to figure out what does what. Conventional generally means no fan forced. Fan forced generally means fan with one to two elements. Super fan forced generally is fan with two to three elements. You should be able to see or feel most elements. Sometimes the one or two elements in the bottom are actually located beneath the oven floor.

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 you're 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.
