We have a Smeg built-in oven, the Instruction Booklet

Customer Question

We have a Smeg built-in oven, the Instruction Booklet displays on the front cover DOSPA38X and on the back cover###-##-####C. The oven is turning on automatically so something must be tripping in its computer. It comes on when we are absent and also during the night so to protect us and our home from something disastrous happening, we now have the power to it turned off and believe a technician needs to be called.
JA: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?
Customer: What do you reckon is going on?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Absolutely Not.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: That is our full story. The intermittent start up is a worry.

The main oven control will need to be replaced but I would also have the wiring inspected to the controller to see that it is not shorted. If you provide your postal code I can get you some servicer referrals.
