Frigidaire Electrolux Dual Fuel PLCF489CC -- Interior Frame Bent

While checking on a roast in the oven, my mom slipped and fell -- bracing herself on the left bottom side of the oven door, and burning her hand. The oven door will no longer close, because while the hinges are okay, the interior frame on the lower right side is bent outward slightly, just above the hinge.

We had a repairman come out through our homeowner's insurance policy and he said that he couldn't repair it because it wasn't normal wear-and-tear. He said it could possibly be "banged out," but that it might ruin the integrity of the oven.

Is this the case? We're trying to make the determination if this can be repaired, or if we have to replace the entire range.

Thank you for your advice.

    Would appreciate getting a second or third opinion, please. I know it's difficult without having a visual of the problem, but perhaps someone has tacked a similar issue?

    The frame is bent/slightly buckled outward just above the hinge of the door. About a 3 inch long area is affected.

Its metal so the paint job will crack and yes the integrity or heating may just cause it to warp in the banged back to shape areas, so maybe you can try to get a replacement door for it before you buy another one, (just another option)

It is very possible that this could be repaired. I once repaired an oven that had similar damage. The outward bend could be mechanically manipulated so that the door could once again close properly. I would advise unplugging and moving the range to a proper work area so that there will not be any danger of electrocution etc. Be aware however that many electrical devices have components in them that hold electrical charge even when they are not plugged in. Be careful. My opinion many times is that there is no harm in attempting to repair before replace. Good Luck and hope moms better

    With a little better understanding of the problem I would suggest trying to straighten ou the bend in the door (remove just the door via the hinges and use a lightweight flat sided hammer to tap the bend back in if this does not resolve the problem simply replace the door, not the whole range and save a ton of money doing so. As long as the repaired or replacement door lines up properly the integrity should be ok. Hope this helps.

As findmeifucan stated, we need to know what was all damaged, and also what the full model number is. You can get the oven liner, for example, ( 318089617) but you may need other parts also. The labor would be rather costly, but it looks like that is a rather nice range and might be worth the investment.

Blue lights flashing can not get to reset


Hey Troy, I understand that you are having problems with your Electrolux Dual-fuel Range. Have you recently installed the range or had a power outage? When the range is first plugged in, or when the power supply to the range has been interrupted, the indicator lights will flash and the control will beep. To stop the lights from flashing, turn the selector control knob to BAKE and back to OFF. You can also attempt a hard reset by unplugging or turning the household power breaker off to the appliance for five to ten minutes. If the problem persists, please reach out to a professional technician. Hope this helps! -JK

Electrolux dual fuel oven will not hold a steady temperature.


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-

Electrolux dual fuel oven will not heat after self clean


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.

The glass panel on the inside of my oven door has fallen out. Also, the oven takes ages to heat and it's almost impossible to roast potatoes........just does not get hot enough. This is a separate problem...


I know that you state the oven not heating up properly pre-dates the problem with the door. However I would recommend that your replace that sheet of glass as a partial oven door will impact the performance of your cooker. Here's our guide to fixing up an oven door:

If the oven is still taking forever to heat up most likely it's a problem with the thermostat or the element. You should check them both for continuity (with the cooker uplugged) and do a visual assessment for any loose wiring that could be contributing to the issue.

Convection cooking


Convection ovens are great for roasting!
I cooked a 15 lb  stuffed turkey in 2 hours in mine. And it was juicy and fab!
My auto degree set for convection  is 325.
I have a Jenn Air wall oven, so I don't know, it might be different for different brand.
Roast or bird should be in the middle of the oven. THe air has to circulate well to get best results.
I believe rule of thumb is a convection oven takes 1/2 LESS time than conventional.
Hope this helps.

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)


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.
