Question about Electrolux Ovens
I purchased a dual chamber Sauter D880 oven (one phase) but when I got it home I discovered that only one chamber works at a time. If the upper chamber is on, the lower chamber doesn't work and vice versa. This was not mentioned at the store or in the user manual. The store and the Sauter service department (Electra) claim this is how the oven is designed ("hil'hati") and they cannot fix it. Surely when sold in Europe both chambers work. According to specifications, the maximum power with both chambers on is about 4kw, which is in the range of the 1-phase power cord. Does anyone know how to over-ride this limitation, and operate both chambers at the same time?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have the single oven of this style and I had to replace the thermocouple (part number 4450934) on the back of the oven three times (used the cleaning cycle three times). After using the cleaning cycle, the oven would not heat so each time I had to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back so I could change the part. Once a new part was put on the back of the oven, it worked fine. To pull the oven out, open the oven door and look down by the doors hinges. On each side you will see a screw that's holding the side molding on. Remove the screws and then the molding. That will give you access to the screws that hold the oven into the framing around the oven. Remove the screws and then you can pull the oven out to access the back to change the thermocouple. The oven is heavy so you may want some help to get out. It is not a one man job, maybe a one man and wife job. It is heavy. I hope this helps. Better late than never.

if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Make sure you hit the reset switch first... on top of the lower over... behind the panel...they trip easy and "kill" the oven.

I Have worked on quite a few of these in the last few weeks, i have found that about 50% of these problems are caused by the control board and the other 50% caused by the thermal fuse, you can check the fuse by removing the unit from the wall and checking for continuity at the thermal fuse. If the fuse is in fact ok then it is the board that is not sending the correct amount of power to the elements. So the Power Control Board is what will need to be replaced, you can purchase both of these parts at, http://www.reliableparts.com/ by using your model number.
Please rate my solution if it was helpful to you.
If you need more in depth information or pictures on how to remove and take this machine apart, feel free to ask.
