“another terrible review”

Written on: 08/08/2016 by Jamar144 (1 review written)

I have had one cooker replaced under warrantee because the fan and circuit board needed replacement 3 times within 2 years. Now the replacement oven door has shattered. I have had enough of the poor build quality and unreliability and have concerns about the safety of the oven doors. Under no circumstances buy this product… Read Full Review

“WOW SMEG what a piece of junk”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by SMEGAREJUNK (1 review written)

Paid a lot of money for this thinking it would be well made. We only use it lightly. Around once a year, I have to take it apart to repair inferior quality melted wiring and inferior quality melted terminals that have burnt out, this is a common problem with SMEG cookers. The gas hobs hardly ever stay lit and you have to take them out and apart and clean the contacts about once a year. It looks nice and that is it. Service from SMEG is the worst and rudest. Only one of the ovens work… Read Full Review

“Not as bad as it is painted!”

Written on: 27/02/2014 by Finnegan231 (1 review written)

I have now had my Smeg A2 since 1998, over 15 years of continuous service. The hob runs on LPG. It has not been perfect - all of the 6 flame failure devices and 4 sparkers have been replaced. We mostly use the fan oven, it has had 3 elements. It went bang when some of the connectors at the back melted. I rewired bits of it and it was OK. This was repeated again recently. This is probably caused by the erratic functioning of the cooling fan. I need to replace a thermostat. Cost of parts has… Read Full Review

“very dangerous ”

Written on: 24/10/2012 by bobbyrob (1 review written)

This has got to be the worst cooker I have ever had,only had the cooker for about a year , already had to buy three new inner glass doors as they just explode,one of the hobs only works occasionally, the oven will just cut off and wont restart for hours,you have too keep checking your food every second as in minutes it could be burnt yet at other times it will take forever,at times when your cooking it smells like your foods burning smoke will seep out of the door, yet when you look your foods… Read Full Review

“WHAT A PIECE OF RUBBISH THIS COOKER IS”

Written on: 11/06/2012

Just one more review adding to the comments about what a piece of rubbish this cooker is. I just cannot believe that Smeg can get away with producing such inferior goods for what is obviously years. I was almost reassured to know that it wasn't just me who couldn't understand when sometimes it burnt stuff in the oven when the previous week at same time and temp it had cooked just fine. You can never know with this oven what you are going to get… Read Full Review

“Smeg A2 dual range”

Written on: 15/03/2012 by Sue6634 (1 review written)

We purchased this oven with the sale of our new house 5 years ago. It hadn't been used. I have been so disappointed by the appliance. The large grill has never worked correctly.... Very very slow. The thermostat went after 2 years and has never worked correctly since. I could only have a smeg repair person to look at it which wasn't cheap and smeg were not interested in it working correctly as i hadn't purchased it myself even though it was within warranty time.The temperature Of the oven does… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2011

I am strangely reassured that I am not the only one that has had so many problems with their SMEG A2 cooker. After a string of niggles this week the inner glass exploded for no apparent reason so am currently looking to replace it along with a new element. The main oven has overheated and then cut out on a number of occasions for no reason (still don't know why), the burners blistered within the first couple of months and so did the replacements and the controls have never been tight enough… Read Full Review

Over the 10 years we have had it, I have spent more in repairs than the cost of the oven - from electrical switches, grill not working (numerous times), oven not working, rotisserie never ever did work and we never used it all. It is the worst oven I have ever owned… Read Full Review

O my God... i'm so glad that i'm not the only one with a very unreliable piece of expensive rubbish! Mine is an A1.1 model however but we've had our oven for over 8years now and we've had numerous amounts of problems! electrical, fans, grill etc. our recent BIG gripe has started 4 years ago, the inner glass door has spontaneously combusted on us 3 times whilst the oven is on at high temperature!!! My daughter was standing next to the oven door when it happened once, scared the living daylight… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/06/2010

Well I must be the odd one out. We`ve had our Smeg A2 range cooker for 10 years - yes ten years- and I only discovered this site because the element for the fan oven has packed up. This is the only thing that has gone wrong, although I do clean out the holes in the burners regularly with spray on oven cleaner or else they don`t work. I`d recommend it to a friend with the suggestion that they read all the negative comments here first!… Read Full Review

“The Smeg A2 oven is appallingly made, poor...”

Written on: 19/07/2009

The Smeg A2 oven is appallingly made, poor documentation, expensive parts and service, execrable reliability. I bought ours from the hopeless wannabees we bought our house from, and it has so far lost the clock, the oven went mad and kept on heating until it got to 350 degrees when we switched it off at the mains, and now it doesn't work at all, the burners are hell to clean and one of them only works about 20% of its rated power. All in all a truly dreadful piece of utter trash. If you value… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2009

We have the Smeg A42-6 Cooker. The inside glass on the bottom door has just blown up (not great during a bbq with 6 kids running around). Has anyone else had this problem and how do you fix it? Also, the clock has never really worked and engineer can't fix it. The bottom oven also heats up to a much higher temperature than it should which means most things burn!… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/06/2008

This A2 cooker looks good but I will NEVER buy anything made by SMEG ever again.
What a disappointment.
My Advice: Don't waste your money on a SMEG.
The A2 has been a disaster.
I have to rely on a microwave to heat things through as I cant get more than two rings alight at the same time… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2007 by toddamos (1 review written)

Despite efforts to keep it working by expensive professionals, it has been pronounced dead after only five years of work. If you want to cook, go elsewhere. With regard to the main oven, which nearly caused a fire when the integrity of the seal went, the repair professionals who attended it, said that it looked like a cheap oven put in an expensive wrapper… Read Full Review

We have owned a Smeg A2 for 7 years and we are so disappointed. We have NEVER had all 6 burners working, and now the main door hinge will not hold the door in a closed position. The gap at the top of the door means we are heating the kitchen every time we roast a joint!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2007 by jhrichards (1 review written)

It also turns out that Smeg UK never processed my 5yr warranty and are currently refusing to honour it. I bought this cooker based on what I thought was a quality brand with quality after sales service.

I only wish I had read these reviews first.

Don't buy anything from Smeg, you will be truly disappointed… Read Full Review
