Error codes EO 21

Good Morning sisutl, thank you for your question!

Could the error code possibly be E-21? If so, this error is commonly referred to an issue with the oven thermal sensor. Typically, the over thermal sensor is in the open position. A professional would need to verify continuity of sensor harness and connections. Depending on an accurate diagnosis the part may need replacing. I hope this information help to some degree.

Fridgidare model number mef305pbwf eyes stopped working

Hello James - Thank you for your question! Let's try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your appliance could be experiencing a communication error with the EOC (electronic oven control), a potential wiring failure or faulty elements. In that case, a certified technician would generally replace the faulty part after proper diagnosis.

whirlpool offers a five year warranty on glass cooktops for thermal damage only not for customer mishaps so call a certified repair place and they can get you a new cooktop if you tell them that it is thermal cracking

Just installed an electric cooktop and the Hot Surface indicator light has been on since installation. How do we fix this?

Sounds like a thermal switch which controls the hot surface light is stuck closed.

If this is a new unit, I'd return it. If not, I would check the switche(s) for the hot surface light -- when the unit is cold, unplug one wire going to the thermal switch and check it for electrical continuity. If you get current from a multi-meter through the switch, replace it -- it's not opening when it cools down.

Yes you can make adjustments but you need a thermometer to set it accurately, you can buy them at Wal mart for 4 bucks. You will need to see if the thermal bulb is located in the flame, if not you will have to move it when it's cool. Some units have a screw to adjust the temperature some use a sliding tube to adjust the heat you will need to look at the stove to see. If you have the owners manual it will help, sometimes the thermal bulb goes bad and the temp control has to be replaced.

Fixing Jenn-Air Custom Control

Sure, I meant to get a copy of the schematic last night so that I could send it to you with the changes. I'll get it tonight and send it to you along with the info I have now. The only thing that will be different is that you won't have independent controls of the dual element burner. For me that was fine cause my wife and I never use just the smaller burner but rather always both. The part #1009577 from repair is an infinite switch which is already being used in the cook top for the largest burner or if not (cause I actually didn't look) for sure it is used in the JEC9536, just the wider model. This part is rated from 8.9 - 11.0 amps or 2,640 watts, when you hook the two burners together I believe it adds up to 3,000 watts so the infinite switch (the biggest I could locate) is slightly under sized. However, I felt most things especially electrical, are over engineered for safety any ways. When you remove the circuit board you will have to drill out the two slots where the two mounting screws will secure the new switch, or you can do what I did and stick a screw driver in the slots and stretch them slightly (very easy to do). You'll need to find two screws that fit the new switch for mounting ( not too long, if your not sure take one off one of the other infinite switches and match it up). I'll have to get back with you on the wiring, it is rather simple though, most of the connections are the same as the other infinite switches. The part number 2FBT6 is just a snap action thermal switch that will replace the thermal sensor that went to the circuit board to light up the hot surface indicator. I tried to use the existing sensor but the hot surface indicator lamp stays lit, so I figured that the sensor was probably a 0-10volt or 4-20mAmp switch that the circuit board monitored and turned on the hot surface indicator accordingly. That is a simple hook up also, however, I have not installed that yet cause I did not find out about the thermal sensor not working for the hot surface indicator until after I put in the infinite switch. Tonight I will install it and let you know what wires go where along with a marked up schematic, maybe even photos if you would like.
