Question: How to replace a grill or bake element on a Smeg cooker
Answer: The following article is just a brief overview on how to replace a grill element on a Smeg cooker and the instructions may vary depending on the age and type of appliance. We recommend that only qualified electrical engineers with the correct skills carrry out the work mentioned below.
Before working or removing any part of the appliance the electrical power supply must be turned off and the appliance is disconnected from the power supply.
Please also make sure that all the oven function switches are in the off position ( please consult your user hand book) before removing any of the covers or touching any of the wiring.
Please note that failure to turn off the electrical supply before working on the appliance or disconnecting can result in electrical shocks which can cause death.
To replace a grill or bake element depending on the age of the cooker will require you to remove the rear covers of the appliance. Once the covers have been removed locate the upper or lower elements depending on which one needs replacing. Make a note of the wiring to the element, a drawing may help, pay particular attention to the colours especially the earth wire (green and yellow stripped)
The elements are held by two or four captive nuts, please undo and keep save. The element can now be removed from inside the oven cavity. Please note on some models there may be retaining clips inside holding the element in place. Once the old element has been removed, please insert the new element and refix using captive nuts. Replace the wiring as per your wiring/notes making sure the colours of the cables are in the correct place and the earth wire is attached. Replace the appliance covers and turn on the power and test.
Once again we always recommend the work is carried out by a qualified engineer with the correct skills.
