This answer was rated:

My Smeg single oven will not heat up and the oven light isnt on. making all the right noise but nothing happening. Checked its not in desplay mode, or child proofed.
Its 6 months old and has been great up til now

Hello Steve, my name is George,

What is the model of your Smeg Oven?.. It should be on a label at the oven opening.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
SF 585 XLS. appears to be model number.

Ok, that model has a fan function and a function were you can use the top & bottom element to cook...

  • Is the fan working?..
  • The conventional mode is the one with two lines, one above the other; is that function working?.

Thanks George, Ive tried all. No grill, heat and fan isn't rotating. Makes a noise as if it's doing somthing but I'm afraid nothing.
Will the oven work normally if the bulb has blown?

Ok.. It depends on the setup..

Let me get a wiring diagram tomorrow and come back to you.

Is the Timer/Display fully functional and the oven set to manual?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
led runs,, with the clock set and running. checked manual and made sure all set up to off. [ child lock and display]..

The oven should work without the bulb, but have you replaced the bulb to see if the circuit is still there?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Buld ordered but as of yet hasnt turned up.. will try and see if it makes a difference

It wont make a difference but it will let me know if the circuit is there
