Question about Smeg SE399X/5 Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

Smeg electric oven

I was preheating my oven, but I hadn't realised a cake tin had fallen up against the right hand side rear fan. All of a sudden the oven made a strange sound and a green light flashed on the top right hand side inside the oven. I panicked and shut the oven off at the emergencey power cut off switch. when I opened the oven it was full of smoke and when I tried to restart the oven, both the fan and the temperture settings wouldn't work. the clock and the oven light are working. I am just wondering what I have done and whether it can be easily fixed. My neighbour said it could just be the element, but if it was, wouldn't the fan still work? The fan works(usually) independently of the temperature, and normally the oven will not switch on unless the fan is also switched on. Please help me, thanks xx

Your neighbour is probably right. fan should work but if the element has disintegrated, bits of the element could be jamming the fan. take the rear panel off inside the oven and check

Smeg oven stopped working

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.
If this helped you why not get me a beer? Paul is from the Naturally he would appreciate beer How to Repair Home...

I am using an old white westinghouse electric oven to bake a cake. I selected the right temperature which was between 150 and 160 cel. It started but I could hear the sound of a fan. I kept it on for at...

Either the temperature sensor has a problem (shorted so the control thinks the oven is colder than the actual temp) or a relay feeding the bake or broil element is welded shut and causing one of the elements to stay on. If the elements are still heating when the "ON" indicator is NOT lit, then you have a welded relay. You need the control board repaired.

My smeg oven has a terrible noise in the fan on right hand side. My husband thinks the bearing has gone. As it stops quicker than the other fan.

It is going to be a worn bearing, or a loose or broken fan blade.
It more than likely means that you are going to have to replace the fan motor complete
One thing you can try is to spray the motor bearings with WD40, this may help to quiten it down
Hope this helps.

Hello. I have a smeg stainless steel oven in my rented house. I have a problem IN KNOWING of what tempertaure I should use for making cakes. Canadian would be 350F.Many thanks. Leila

350 is a good starting point. Some cakes require different temperatures. May I suggest that you read "The Cake Bible" for excellent instructions on temperature.

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
