Question about Electrolux 37 in. Designer Series E36IC75FSS Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Power button problem

Help - The cooktop is unlocked.  I touch the power button and nothing.  I've left my finger in the middle of the button for 5 seconds nothing.  There are no lights on the cooktop at all.  It's like it's dead.  The top is clean.  Help - I'm housesitting and it will look like I broke it.  It worked perfectly two days ago.

Re: Power button problem

Without being there to troubleshoot further, the first thing I'd recommend is checking the breaker. It'll most likely be in the breaker panel outside the house... in the BIG panel. This is a 240 Volt unit, so what you'll be looking for is a "dual" breaker. They'll be connected together.

I'll tell you what... here's the easy way to do it. Simply turn off, then turn on all the breakers in the big breaker box outside. Make sure you have all the computers turned off first, though. You might have to reset a few clocks, but that's OK. I'd bet this gets you cooking again. If not, post back.

Power went out. reset circuit breaker and all the lights keep flashing 8.8 and won't stop

Hello Heidi, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Electrolux cooktop is displaying an error code of 8.8. The error code of 8.8 means there is a shift register issue on the middle touch board. This could a possible issue with the control board or the middle touch board. You may need to have a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis. We hope this information is helpful to your repair. -Matt

The red padlock icon that usually unlocks with the 5 second touch of a finger won't unlock the cooktop.

Have you tried disconnecting the whole cooktop from the main supply for about 5 minutes? Sometimes when reconnected the fault goes away.

Can't turn on KECC508 cooktop I didn't buy it and it is in the house and the light in the middle to power all burners off is lit.

The middle light is the lock. You must hold it down for at least 7 seconds to unlock it, then the middle light will go off. Your hands can't be wet, or none of the buttons on mine work right.

Hob not working

It is child lock.

Turn cooker on, press two + at front of oven, this will then take it off for that cooking session.

To turn child lock off switch on hob, and touch - for 5 seconds.
