Hi, welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
SE335SS/5 integral smeg oven
apporx 8 years old
when you turn it on does the temperature light on the front comes on ?
yes but only when i turn the thermostat on
and does the fan work ?
the oven element works for the grill, but not when i change to fan oven function
yes the oven lights comes on when i turn oven on, just re checked, sorry
r u still there?
just want to know if the fan is working ?
as the fan works fine and the temperature light is coming on, then the most likely cause of the problem is a failure of the circular element in the oven.
can you test it with a multimeter ?
no, I just a women doing her best. All i have tried to do was try the grill and the large element which is at the top of the oven heats up 4 the grill and I assume this element is the same for the oven!
do not have a nultimeter
this is the element for the fan
if you want to do it yourself you will have to take the rear off the unit with the unit unplugged completely
oh, so why dose this element heat up for the grill and not for the oven... where is the oven element then
this is the grill element
and this one is the fan oven element
yes ok this u can see at the top of the oven... are u saying the oven element is in the back of the oven then
is the image above the oven element then
There are 2 types, one is held from the front by screws, the other is held from the rear by nuts.....You will have to first take the rear panel inside the oven out which will reveal the element and the fan and then take the screws holding the element in place out.Bring the element and the wiring into the oven cavity.
yes the round one is the oven element
if you can test with the multimeter it will tell us if that is bad
from what you have described it is more likely the fan oven element
So, the fan oven element is behind the back plate of the inside of the oven.... if this is the case i will need to check this by using a multimeter. How will i check this, I know I now need to have a word with my brother who will have a multimeter.
just test them with a multi meter for continuity
no continuity means bad element
if it tests fine let me know
ok, will testing this do i need to have power on whil testing it
no please make sure it is completely unplugged and set the meter to its lowest setting
or do u just test it while all power is off at the mains
ok, i now understand. what type of reading r we looking for if element has damaged
hi still waiting as I can not do at the moment, as it will be a few days b4 I can get my brother here with me.
