I am not familiar with your model of cooker but I assume it is a gas cooker.
Gas cookers have safety devices in the oven and grill the hob rings do not need. I speculate even the domestic oven hasn't escaped the interference from the electronics industry and I expect the aforementioned safety devices depend on (low voltage) electronics and electronics depend on electricity - that the lights aren't working would suggest there is no (low voltage) electricity.
Even in the case of an electric oven the thermostat could be electronic and need (low voltage) electricity to work.
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 sounds like the oven is not working as the electronic timer is in auto. mode. It must be in maunal mode for manual oven operation. Turn the oven on. Muck around with the buttons on the timer and try all different combinations. This may take 5 minutes or more. When you do hit the manual mode the oven indicator light will come on and the oven will work.
When you refer to resetting it are you talking about turning the mains power off and then back on? Or are you talking about resetting the electronic timer? The electronic timer must be in the manual mode for the oven to work. Turn the oven on and play with the timer. When the oven indicator light comes on you know the oven is working.
When you say board I assume you mean the electronic clock/timer. This timer directly affects the oven operation. Even if the internal oven fuse is blown or the thermal overload is tripped the electronic timer and oven light will always work. If the oven light works and the electronic timer/clock does not I'd say that the timer/clock is faulty.
Is this a range with the oven in the bottom and the hot plates on top. If so does it have an electronic timer/clock. If it does the electronic timer must be set to manual for the oven to work. If unsure turn the oven on and then adjust the mode control on the timer. If it is set to auto now and you can get it to manual the oven indicator lamp should light and the oven should work. If it is a separate oven and cooktop there may be a separate power supply for the oven at the switchboard.
When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
I hope this helps.
It's either the thermostat / switch or the timer unit. Make sure the timer was not set to have turned off the grill first . http://www.espares.co.uk/part/cookers-and-hobs/thermostats/aeg/p/1604/143/0/0/1061574/top-oven-thermostat.html
I sorted it it is a simple solution, if you take the top of your oven you should see the problem...it will be big and black..dont spend a ortune getting it sorted i brought the part off ebay for less than a fiver..
just cant remember what it was called..very simple to fix though.
