How expert repairs can enhance the life of your Smeg oven

They were made out of that sturdy heavy gauge metal and used the best quality mechanical components. Proper maintenances and care can enhance its life beyond its average tenure!

Every appliance, including the Smeg oven, has a maximum lifespan. It doesn’t mean that it will last forever. It will automatically self-destruct with years of use. It means you can expect to have components wearing out and may need essential repair or even have to replace it in the next few years. However, more modern ovens use lighter materials, electronic components, and may even have necessary electronic devices inside them that are expected to last for a few years.

Over time, these particles build up and may force your oven to rust. Furthermore, they can burn up and release bad smells around your food. Wiping up spills when they happen in your oven is not really a reliable way to keep it clean. It must need a professional cleaning at least once in a few months to remove the grease and baked-on areas of grime.

Keep it dry.

Never leave the oven wet from inside especially after cooking a steamy dish. We would advise you to keep the door slightly open while hot, so that the steam escapes and leaves the oven cavity dry.

Never leave a shelf on the floor of the oven (bottom most part inside the oven)

The reason is that the heat is trapped from the bottom element and this deforms the bottom and also damages or crack the enamel coating inside the oven.

Avoid self-clean feature. This is our opinion only and we may be wrong.

Self-clean functions come with some of the ovens. The way this works is that the oven is heated to 500 degrees centigrade to disintegrate any food particles or grease. Probably, it is an effective cleaning method, but is not good for the door latch or the electronics. Of course, the oven is insulated to withstand heat. But it doesn’t always works as it is expected, and sometimes it will damage the components in the control board or damage the door lock, causing unnecessary strain on the electronics. Hence it needs special Smeg oven repair care that does the job accurately by replacing the parts and make it work properly again.
