Unlikely there would be no air spilling through the door seal because it is an oven and not a watertight compartment. An oven door seal needs to be hard wearing and able to withstand high temperatures and hot grease which limits the materials used, that and the fact few domestic oven doors actually latch these days but are held closed by springs meaning the pressure against the seal is relatively light which means the door, the shut and the seal must be manufactured to a high degree of accuracy and properly adjusted.

If the amount or air leakage is excessive perhaps the door could be adjusted or the seal replaced. Try asking around to find someone with a similar oven so you can compare...

How long is the oven in operation before you check the air flow ? Most Smeg ovens are electronically integrated and sensitive.

    Sounds like you need a new oven element fitting.

    Today when I turned on my GE Profile electric wall oven, the fan started running. Why is it doing this? Will it take llonger for the oven to heat up if the fan is running?

    actually it takes less time to heat up and cook with the fan running
    That is why it is called a fan forced oven as the fan forces the hot air all around the oven , heating it quicker and giving a better cooking result by moving hot air all around what is being cooked

    My Chef Classic Wall mounted fan forced oven stopped working. Its grill section working. Fan and the light in the oven working well. Bot oven doesnot heat up. Please give a tip what is probably wrong?

    The bake element has gone bad. They can visually look fine but still be bad. To check and replace that element you will unfortunately need to kill the power and remove it from the wall. Remove the back cover. Check for a low resistance (around 16 ohms) across the bake element. If the resistance is high the element is bad. Google the make and model for a replacement element.

    The house I've just bought has a Smeg 60 cm wall oven installed. Possibly 4-5 yrs old. I can't get it to work. An orange light comes on on the door panel when the temp control is turned on. Light goes...

    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.

    The fan copntinues to run after oven is turned off

    Most electric ovens have 2 fans. One is a fan forced fan at the back of the oven cavity that you can generally see spinning when the oven/fan forced option is selected. The other is a cavity fan which is situated between the outer skin of the oven and the oven itself. There are generally located at the top of the oven. Because the oven is a wall oven that sits in a tight cavity it cannot cool down easily. The job of the cavity fan is to cool this cavity down by blowing the hot air in the cavity out a small hole, normally in the front of the oven. When you turn the oven off this fan might operate for 5 to 10 minutes until the oven cavity cools sufficiently. If there was no cavity fan the oven and/or cupboard would overheat.

    Built in oven front panel gets too hot

    No. There should be a fan that runs and blows cool air from a gap at the top of the door and over the controls.

    Chef classic wall oven with digital clock change time?

    Press the TIMER button (the leftmost one with a little bell icon) and the "cooking" button (the one next to it with a "hot saucepan" icon) briefly at the same time. Within four seconds start changing the time with the + or - buttons. When you have the correct time just leave it and it will leave time setting mode four seconds after the last button press.
