Automatic Ignition Oven Problem

About 3 years ago we had our Kitchen renovated and a new Technika Oven was installed. The problem that we now have is that the ignition starter switch to light the Gas Burners and Oven has stopped working. We have to manually light them with a match. Do you know if this is a problem with a simple solution that a handyman could fix? Is the ignition switch replacable? Is there a seperate fuse that may have likenly blown?

    Ignition switch and oven light stopped working. Is there a battery/fuse? Where is it? Should power supply be disconnected before replacement?

Depending on the type of ignition used (sometimes they have pressure sensitive switchs other times its just a simple microswitch) the switch's may have gone but also can you hear a clicking but the burners / oven not lighting? if so then the electroeds on the appliance may just need cleaning if not then i would recommend getting an engineer out the repair its self should be pretty cheap

I have an Indesit oven FI 31 KB. It is 3 years old but never used as it is in a house I have just renovated. I turned the oven on, but the fan did not come on as it is expected to do. Oven and light seem...

sometimes there is a switch that operates when the door is opened or closed causes the fan to stop when the door opens. The switch is normally mounted at a door hinge, or hinge bracket.might have to remove a panal to get to it

Does the lyric 50 gx oparkinson cowan cycloneheat gas oven have an automatic flame safety device that shuts off the gas if it is not ignited?

Most gas ovens using glowbar technology have a failsafe to not allow gas flow without glowbar pilot ignition.

If you are asking this question it is most likely that your glowbar needs replacement. This is fairly easy to do yourself. I recommend researching your glowbar part thoroughly and purchasing the part off ebay. It will save you a bunch. I did this a month ago.

Funny thing is when I called my local parts guy he told me that 6 glowbars for my model were sold that day, but very few prior, and he was out of them. Looks to me like the oven manufacturers are working with planned obsolescence to get you to buy a new oven every 10 years if you are not savvy enough to fix yours.

This coensides with the building boom 10 years ago in my area. Coincidence? Not likely.

Lots of water/condensate ends up on bottom of oven

I have the same problem with my new Smeg oven. I try to avoid using the oven at the moment because of the amount of condensation I have to mop up each time I use it, even the floor get wet!. Smeg have said they will replace it but I am now looking for an oven that will fit into the 'whole' the oven will leave in my newly renovated kitchen. I wish I had never ventured near to SMEG. I would never recomend Smeg to friends, quite the opposite.

Hi, I am in the process of installing a new kitchen. I was recommended to buy Smeg appliances- an oven and ceramic hotplate by a salesperson stating they are very good aplliances, however another...

From experience I have found Smeg appliances to be very reliable.

It is difficult to judge reliability of appliances but generally these days NO appliance will last without some form of brake down. They are not made to the same quality as appliances of a few years ago.
If you stick to german made appliances (Bosch, Neff, inc Smeg ) then they tend to be built to a higher spec.
