Question about Electrolux EOB5630 Ultrafan Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Electrolux EOB5630 door hinge locked closed

With reference to the picture below, the hinge closest to the camera seems to be locked in a right angle position (it should be at the same angle as the far hinge) meaning that I'm unable to refit the door to the oven.


I'd be grateful if someone could advise me on how to get the hinge in the correct position, so that I can refit the door. Is it just a matter of brute force?

Look for a release button. If not, it may have a locking mechanism that needs to be released. Try some of these: push the hinge to one side while lifting, press the hinge down then lift, pull up on the hinge while pulling. Good luck!

Hi there,

Not sure that I can help but will certainly try. You need to check to see if the power is getting to the oven. As the grill, light and fan are working it seems that it is. With the Oven not heating up I would suggest that it is possibly the Oven Element. Usually to check these you need to remove the cover inside the oven and also the back cover. You will probably find the power is getting to the element but the element is not working and needs replacing. Before removing it MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE OVEN. Should only be 2 or 3 wires going to the element which will need to be removed before removal. Usually only a couple of screws hold the element in and once removed you may have to wiggle the element a little to get it out. Replacement is just a reversal of the removal procedure. I had to replace the one in our oven 2 weeks ago as we had the same problem. It is fine now and was only the element. Just MAKE SURE you TURN OFF THE POWER before removing the element. Hope this helps.

regards
Bryan

SOURCE: Electrolux EOB5630 oven cuts out

First thing you would want to check is, make sure you don't have any issues with the electrical connection to the oven first. Possible cuircut breaker issue.

Check these things first, you are probably going to find a loose connection somewhere. If that doesn't fix your problem.

Let me know and we can go from there.

Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].

The hinges mount inside the oven door, open the door all the way, then move the small clips that are riveted to the hinge to the position opposite of where they sit now... this will hold the hinge springs open.

How can I remove door?


Hi Tammy:
Many of the older stoves used a similar door hinge system.
When the door is fully opened it can be removed in the following way.
It's much easier with two people.
With one person on each side, lift near the hinge (closest to the stove) then pull away from the stove and at the same time, lift the handle end of the door.
There is a tab and a notch on the hinge arm that has to slide past the retainer.
To re-install, the hinge has to be set for the "door open position".
Slide the hinge arms into the slot so that the tab and slot engage in the correct positions.
Hope this helps.

Hi the right hand hinge of the door has popped out whilst I was trying to move the oven using the door handle as leverage. The door is now wonky when closed as the hinged has popped out. Help!


All oven door typically lift off the hinges by design. If you open the door to what is referred as the broil position. You know when the door stops about 4 to 6 inches open at the top. Then do the following.

1. Lift the door up completely off the opposite hinge still in place and remove. Set the door aside carefully as if has glass window, you do not want to break.

2. Then set both hinges at the broiler stop position. If one is all the way in to door fully closed position pull it out with your hand or with pliers till it stops @ broiler position. If all the way down as if door was fully open, lift hinge until it stops at broiler position. CAUTION- THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED AND CAN SNAP BACK INTO FULLY CLOSED POSITION. You can use a heavy glove or if you have an oven mitten, that can work to protect your fingers. DO NOT GET YOUR FINGERS BETWEEN HINGE AND OVEN OR CAN PINCH FINGERS.

3. Now carefully lift the door over the hinges set at the broiler position. Careful not to bump them when doing so or can snap closed. If does, reset hinge to broiler position and repeat. Works best to hold door at angle that door is when in broiler position. Once you have them started evenly, you should be able to fully slide down back onto both hinges.

4. If one of the hinges no longer has spring tension you have to reattach the spring. You can usually access spring if needed by removing the bottom drawer.

What is the diference between an EOB5630, and EOB5630B, an EOB5630x etc. I have an EOB5630 oven fan element to replace but need to be sure I get the right one. Are these models interchangeable??

My oven door glass was dirty, from the vents in the oven door..so we took off the oven door, took apart all the screws and cleaned the glass. First of all, don't know if we got the glass pieces in the...


the glass pieces should only fit back in one way, holes will only go one way , as far as the hinges, the need to be locked open in order to replace back into the unit, there is either a small hole in corner of hing that when pushed wll align with another hole in hing allowin for a thin blade screwdriver to be inserted adn hold in hte locked position,... the other way is a small locking mechanism is loacated on the top of hinge that when fully extended will lock hinge open for reattachment... you would need to REALLY PRESS that hinge to lock in place..

How do I remove the oven door


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Most if not all Thermador owners manuals have this outlined in them, however, here you go.




Removing the Oven Door


  • Fully open the oven door.
  • Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to the "locked" position (see illustration below). This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed.
  • Grasp the door by the sides toward the back. Raise the front of the door several inches (there will be some spring resistance to overcome because of the hinge being locked). When the front of the door is high enough, you will be able to lift the hinges to clear the indents.
  • Pull the hinges out of the slots in the oven front frame.



To Replace the Oven Door


  • Grasp the sides of the door at the center and insert the ends of the hinges into the slots in the oven front frame as far as they will go (see illustration below).
  • With the door open all the way, lower the two locking clips.
  • Raise the oven door and make sure that it fits evenly with the front sides.


DOOR HINGE WARNING:

**CAUTION** With the door off, never release the levers and try to close the hinges. Without the weight of the door, the powerful springs will snap the hinges closed with great force.


Let me know how you make out or if anything is unclear. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Good Luck,

Macmarkus :)
