Question about Smeg SE399X/5 Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

Smegg Oven Model Number and problems ... please help =)


I have recently moved into a new place, and a Smegg oven came fitted in the kitchen. I cannot find the model number, can anyone help? There are 3 dials and a small light inbetween the 2nd and 3rd button.

I am also having another problem...I cannot seem to get the oven to heat up unless the timer mode is on. The first dial appears to be the timer, and the oven will only heat up when this is turned to a time and is ticking. As soon as the timer ends the oven stops heating. I really would like the oven to work when the timer fuction is not running...can anyone explain why it switches itself off when the timer ends and how to overcome this?

Unfortunatley alot of the symbols have been warn away. I have attached a photo of the oven with close ups of the 3 dials...if anyone can help me with a diagram of what the buttons are do I that would be great!

Many thanks for any help / advise given =)

    Thanks for the advice, it pointed me in the right direction =). The model turned out to be an SE-335SS. Having spoken to Smeg a couple of times they have said they would email me through a manual but so far haven't seemed to have got round to it! Hopefully whan a manual is found it will resolve the issue where the oven only heats up when the timer is ticking (there appears to be no manual timer mode).

    Once again thanks =)

    I've tracked down a manual, it says regarding the timer (minute minder knob) that "The oven is not automatically switched off when the end of cooking alarm sounds" yet the oven definatley stops heating when the alarm sounds. Any ideas? Thanks for any help given =)

    Unfortunatley the knob doesn't appear to turn left (anti-clockwise) though we have tried. Perhaps the dial is broken, although it doesn't seem to be. Thanks for you help though =)

On mine if you turn the timer left 1 click to the "hand" logo it should work fine. Never used the timer

It looks like an S551X-5, I think the timer is a safety mechanism, maybe just set it to full when in use and turn it off when you finish.
Go to to see features, etc.

My daughter-in-law just moved in to a newer home with a stainless steel Kitchen Aid ceramic top stove. It has a warming oven, a convect feature etc. However, with options etc. it is very confusing to...

Kitchen Aid manuals are available from their support site: . The model number is needed to locate the manual. For ranges, the plaque with the model number is inside the oven door.

The KitchenAid ovens that I know will turn off when you press Off (unless the control lock is on - then you need to disable the control lock). The Warming Drawer will have a separate Off button. Dual oven units require you to select which oven and then press off.

See for a similar range. (ceramic glass cooktop, convection feature and warming drawer)

I hope this helps.

I have recently moved into a new house and can't get the oven to work. I was hoping to get a manual for the wall oven and see if this information will solve my problem. It is a 1993 model EVBS3193...

So you have moved to a new house. I am assumeing that the Oven worked fine at the old house. I am also assumeing that you have plugged the Oven into your new house and that is when you noticed that it was not working.

If this is the case then the problem may be that the Breaker in the Electrical Sevice Panel of the new house is off. You need to reset the breaker and the Oven should then work.

The "technician" has no idea why your oven is defective but the fact remains it was defective when installed. Magnet needs to take responsibility for replacing it.

Will this oven fit into a fitted kitchen unit that currently holds a single oven?

As long as it is a single oven that you propose to fit, then there should be no prob..
The majority of single ovens will fit , with the odd exception, but I forsee no prob in your case.
Please rate my comments.
