20 Most Recent Electrolux EW30DS65GS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Range Questions & Answers

Hello Limeygary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your unit has so many electrical controls and components. In the future remember simple is better and more reliable.

First, your control boards. You have two control boards in your unit. In this case you should have a surge protector for all of your appliances with control boards. You can purchase a single socket surge protector for about $25.00 USD.

When you changed out the one board did you ground yourself by touching something that is bare metal? Static electricity will knock out a control board. You may have a power supply problem where the slightest change may knock out a board. This is why a surge protector is critical.

I had one customer that I had to replace the main control board 3 times in 18 months.

Ok, lets assume the boards are good and you have no shorts.

Lets check the oven wall thermal switch.

This switch is in the upper right corner of your oven back wall.
Disconnect the two leads to the switch. With your multi-meter, set it to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). While depressing the red button, place one meter lead on one contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. You should get a reading of "0" Ohms if the switch is good, otherwise it is bad.

You have two separate motors. These motors may be locked in to continuous run.
On this motor, located under the top cover, under a small removable plate. It has a black contact switch. Remove the two electrical contactors. Using your multi-meter as described above, hold in the contact button. Your Ohms should be "0". The metal contacts may be fused.

This is located in the upper back section of you unit. It has a transformer. disconnect the two wire leads and Ohm them out to "0".

Remember, You still may have a control board problem. Ground yourself and check for burn marks or melted connections.

I'd get a briquette lighter down in there when you turn it on and try to light it manually. If it does not light, it is a gas supply problem (bad valve or control), and time to call appliance guy. If it does light, the spark path over to the burner may just be plugged with something. If you have gas + spark, but no fire, it almost has to be that the spark can't reach the gas for some reason. That usually comes from something being plugged up.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux range, model# EW30DS65GS, will not hold a steady temperature. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any oven cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi Bruce, this is AP!

I understand you are struggling with the lock feature on your Electrolux duel fuel range, model EW30DS65GS. In order to cancel the Control Lock feature, press Control Lock and hold for 3 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operation.

This door lock feature is activated by pressing Control Lock and holding for 3 seconds. The Door Lock indicator light will flash for 20 seconds until the door has finished locking. Do not attempt to open the door while Door Lock is flashing, this may result in the door locking open.

This information is also located in the owner's manual should you like to view it again, you may retrieve a manual using your model# and the following link http://www.electroluxappliances.com/Owner-Support/Product-Support/

I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Standard problem with this unit sorry to tell you! I've worked on several.The main oven would take 20-22 minutes to pre-heat, even on the "rapid pre-heat setting". I was told by Electrolux techs that it is the way the range is designed because of the "hidden element." Very sorry to tell you I found this model to just be very Unreliable. To many issues......

The unit needs to be reset. The temperature had tripped the internal sensor of the unit. This usually has to be done by a professional since the back panel needs to be taken off and the power reset inside.

Sounds like the control board to that element has a communication error or a loose connection. Contact a professional to be sure.

I just had my converted to LP so the answer is yes. I believe it was about $79 to do so.

Since there are gas fumes this is a dangerous situation and should really have a professional with the right equipment to find the leak.
