Question about Smeg Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Hi I have a Smeg gas cooker. The gas oven is giving me trouble. It'll ignite and keeps on for a few minutes and then the flame goes out. It takes a few minutes once the oven is lit for the fan to kick in. However if the flame goes out the fan keeps going so you don't know that the flame is out. The fan keeps going for 20 minutes before it stops and all the while you think the oven has been cooking only to find that for the past 20' minutes it's been cooling down. So I have to check every 2 minutes to see if the flame is still on and the oven is still cooking, most times having to relight it, which requires opening the door and holding the knob down for 15 seconds before the flame stays on. It's tiresome and really doesn't work while baking. Please advise?

SOURCE: Oven cooling fan keeps on spinning

Sounds like you have a oven probe or (if equipped) computer issue. From the looks of it, you dont have a computer on this model, so you probably have a thermostat stuck somewhere in there. The thermostat closes at the set temp, then opens when the unit cools. Sounds like this one is stuck in the closed position, allowing the fan to run all the time. You will have to look and see if you have a wiring diagram on the back of the unit, then find the fan wires and see which thermostat controls it. If no diagram, follow the wires out of the fan and see if on runs to a thermostat. Good luck and let me know if you need further info.

this one is hands on fix,many times the spark ignition the one that makes the clicking noise is clicking on a different position,so you most look inside the oven to see the spark, you can see it better at night or when is dark to see the spark, that spark is right at the tip of the oven pilot, make sure you see the spark lighting the long as the pilot does not ignite.the clicking sounds continues making the noise. if the pilot lights the noise will stop, if the oven burner does not light after pilot is being for about 1 minute and a half the safety valve needs replacing

SOURCE: Avanti DG241BS - oven will not stay on

There has to be a protection system in the burner assembly to cut the supply of gas to the burner if it does not light. For the case of an oven the supply must be cut off immediately if the burner and its pilot go out. For that gas control system to work the burner control must "recognize" with a sensor when the burner is lit and when it is not. Pushing the knob "in" momentarily on this model bypasses the protection system momentarily to allow a burner to be ignited in the first place. If releasing the knob extinguishes the flame the control system is not "seeing" the flame. I tried to find some detail info on you particular ignition system but to no avail so all I can offer is a general approach to these kinds of problems . You need to find and clean or replace the sensor used to detect a flame. It could be an optical one (doubt that) or a temperature flame sensor, a thermocouple sensor, or some other kind I haven't thought of. Fixing this problem involves first determining what kind of sensor it uses. A copy of a service manual for this model can help you determine that. Try to clean the flame detector, and if that doesn't work you have to replace it or the gas control assembly it is a part of. If you have a spark ignition and its not sparking when it should first clean it --carefully--. Spilled food can short them out. Unplug the range before doing this. The owners manual shows it to be under the top burners which can be removed for cleaning this.

Oven igniter comes on gas burner lights but goes out after 15 seconds cutting power to the stove power comes back on after a couple of minutes model mgs5770

Hello Susan,

it is not quite clear to me what you mean.
But I think, the ingition in the gas oven works and lights the burner.
and then after 15 seconds the burner goes out.
Any modern oven has a Flame Failure Device.
That prevents the oven getting gas when the burner went out for some reason.
I would suspect that FFD, it is mounted besides the burner.
You can not repair that part for safety reasons, You have to replace it when it is gone.

Kind regards, Dik

Oven won't stay lit after ignition. When knob released, gas goes of.

Cookers have a flame failure safety device. Yours may be faulty.
They are designed so that if the flame goes out then the gas shuts off, but it may think there is no flame and keeps shutting off despite it being lit.
Will need an expert on this I think.

My gas oven won't ignite, takes several tries to ignite it.

All gas appliances have a thermal cut out this will shut the gas off if the flame goes out the down side is when the thermal cut out becomes faulty it can shut the gas of when you are using the cooker the only fix is to replace the thermal cut out

I have a Smeg Range cooker A1 (electric oven, 6 ring gas hob). I have the following problem with just one of the rings - it sparks and the gas lights normally, but when I eventually let go of the knob...

It could sometimes be a thermocouple that is not properly mounted against the flame or is just defective, these thermocouples are mounted for safety because it would not be good if gas flows out of gas for a long time without flame in professional gas equipment, the gas flow is often Many times higher, by the way a nice device and good brand.
I think the damage is very common here. By hand, you might also be able to take it yourself if there is technical knowledge and with the proper attention on gas sealing. look a few examples of your problem from of the link about this.

Top burners will noty lite

Hello, this is a strange story.
I had this a few times in the opposite and then I found that it was a LPG cooker in stead of a natural gas cooker.
Did you buy this cooker second hand and did not use it before?
When this cooker is normally natural gas, then the nozzles are much larger then when used for LPG, as the pressure of LPG is much higher as for natural gas.
In that case you can change the nozzles for LPG use
Is this a dual fuel cooker with electric oven?

Oven takes 5 minutes to come on (ignite).

Replaced the igniter. The parts guy told me that the amperage changes with age and use; thus the igniter still glows, but it takes much longer to operate the gas valve with the reduced amperage. Cost - $70.14

Belling G755 Cooker oven wont stay lit

I'll give this a go! With a cooker like this, you depress and then turn the control knob, press the ignition button and continue to depress the control knob for a few seconds. This is because a device called a thermocouple is heated by the flame and you have to continue to depress the control knob so that sufficient gas flows to heat up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple does not get hot or stay hot then the gas valve is automatically closed - stopping the gas. The thermocouple is a 'flame failure' safety device. If the gas gets cut off then the flame goes out and the thermocouple goes cold switching off the gas valve automatically. However, you are having to try and manually keep the gas going for a good five minutes. I would think that there is either a problem with the thermocouple or the gas control valve! Tony

Rangemaster 110 gas cooker - RH Oven lights but doesn't heat up

Will the flame go out if you turn the control knob to the off position?

Sometimes gas cooking control knobs have two seperate types of control in the one knob. One control turn the gas on or off, one adjusts the variable quantity of gas allowed through a gap to your flame jets. Some control knobs can get gummed up and stick a little. The can be fixed by carefully taking apart the control knob, taking note of EXACTLY how everything goes back together and cleaning any gummed up bits. Then reassemble the knob and drizzle soapy water over the control to test for leaks. A leaky gas join blows bubbles and makes noise. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Gas cooker keeps igniting

Sometimes when I clean my cooker, and it gets damp, mine ignites like that. It soon stops after it dries out. Give it chance and see.
