    Hi Huuum,



    Model No, E30EW7CESS3

    No, there are no error codes.

    Yes, we shut the breaker off, then waited, and back on. The oven displays PF for power failure. We then tried the top and bottom elements, but no heat. All the fron lights work, and the internal oven lights work.



    Thanks

    Steve

    No, the PF is a result of me turning the breaker off/on.

    Once I enter the time on the overn, it has full front panel funtionality, just the elements don't heat. The convection fan spins.



    The oven was bought March of this year.

    We bought it from Tasco Appliances. We have spent enough there on appliacnes to buy a car. They seemed totally uninterested in addressing our problem, to the point the Missus suggested I drop the oven off in their showroom. They promised a technician out in 11 days!



    We are going to call Electrolux on Monday and escalate this. We'll never buy another appliance from Tasco.



    I'll update on Monday, and give you the solve.

    Electrolux fan oven switches off after around 20 mins then switches back on after cooling down, Fan works initially as does heating element also the seperate grill element does the same and cuts out after set time. oven around 2 - 3 years old and has not been used extensively. Is this a problem with the overheat module or the thermostat?
    How much would a replacement part cost and where is it located within the unit?
    Thanks

Hello stevefer
Welcome.

You said, Your Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)

First,
1.What is the Model Number and the year of your wall oven?
2.Did the oven light up and display with any error codes?
3. Did you try to turn the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if this will reset the system?

Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.
I will be able to better assist you when you reply with this information.
Waiting your response.

    OVEN CONTROL BEEPS AND DISPLAYS AN "F" ERROR CODE

    * Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Push CANCEL pad to clear the
    display and stop the display from beeping. Reprogram the oven. If a fault reoccurs,
    record the fault number, push the CANCEL pad and contact an authorized servicer.


    ENTIRE OVEN DOES NOT OPERATE
    When the oven is first plugged in, or when the power supply to the oven has been
    interrupted, the display will flash. The oven cannot be programmed until the clock is
    set.
    * Be sure electrical cord is securely connected into the electrical junction box.
    * Cord/plug is not installed and/or connected. Cord is not supplied with oven. Contact
    your dealer, installing agent or authorized servicer.
    * Service wiring not complete. Contact your dealer, installing agent or authorized
    servicer.
    o Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call your local electric company.
    * Short in cord/plug. Replace cord/plug.

    I know you have an oven, not a range, But read this anyway!






    Faulty Temperature Sensor

    Newer
    style ovens with an electronic range control (ERC) utilize a
    temperature sensor inside the oven to regulate heating. This sensor
    controls the cooking modes and usually the self-cleaning mode on those
    models that have the option.

    The sensor has a very specific
    internal resistance that changes along with temperature. The sensor
    goes bad when its resistance is changed through a faulty internal
    connection or internal short.

    How to Diagnose?
    You
    can remove the sensor and check its resistance. It should read about
    1100 ohms at room temperature. If the reading is off more than about 50
    ohms, replace the sensor.

    Recent Customer Symptoms:
    The
    oven does not reach the set temp. and fluctuates. ( set point of 400,
    temp will reach 390 and fluctuate between 350 and 390). It check out at
    16 ohms at room temp. what I need to know is what should it read at
    what temps.

    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Faulty Control Board

    Ovens that
    utilize a sensor require some electronics to interpret the sensor data
    and to take appropriate action to raise or lower the temperature in the
    oven. There are several configurations of this electronics. There are
    some electronic range controls (sometimes called ERC's or clocks) that
    have the logic and relay boards combined into a single unit. Others
    have a logic board that is separate from the relay board.

    If your oven will not keep a consistent temperature and you have verified that the sensor is not faulty, then one of these control boards could be faulty. The easiest way to tell is if the electronic range control is throwing a Fault Code.


    If it is not throwing a Fault Code, then you may be able to test the
    board(s) with the aid of a diagnostic sheet. This sheet is often
    located in an envelope that is located inside the cavity of the control
    panel. These diagnostic sheets are very model specific and usually
    provide voltage and resistance meeting that can be taken across test
    points on the boards.

    I do not think I suggested that you check if the heating elements be pulled out and the connector that they go into, be tested if there is power to them??????????????
    If there is power to the connectors

    Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.

    If there is not power to them this needs to be traced back towards the failure till it's located!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think this will give you the answer.

    Doesn't this make sense.

    They call this action a push pull.
    They call a dealer and ask him to do a push pull ( Order and replace) for them and they pay the dealer!
    the sealer is not allowed to take a dime from you. Not even delivery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ZERO
    You bought a new one and deserve no headaches.

On bake mode it justs gets luke warm. broil mode it works fine


Hi,

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.


Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.


  • You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.


  • If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Hello. You have done an excellent job of explaining your problem. Read over the info. below as it sounds like your top element is not working.

    Electric Oven not getting hot enough


    Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
    How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
    Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

    1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
    2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

    Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT


    I hate self clean functions - If you think about it - you should too. These ranges are equipped with electronic components and running self clean at 950 degrees will more than likely burn something out. A lot of complaints are because of the self clean. It's not worth it to self clean than to clean it yourself. And 200 dollars is a great price for something like this if it includes parts and labor. Good luck.
