Question about Electrolux EOB6632 Electric Single Oven
It starts heating, works for between 15-20 mins then the power light remains on but the oven shuts off. What can I do?
SOURCE: oven heats up then switches off
there is an overheat stat in the oven which turns it off if overheating. the causes are several. 1 - oven thermostat is faulty and oven is reachingf too high a temp. 2 - there is a second fan in the casing to keep the casing cool. 3 - this second fan is turned on by a fan start stat which may be faulty and is not starting the cooling fan 4 - the overheat stat itself is faulty. it is a bit difficult to narrow it down from afar. get back to me if you want

SOURCE: oven switching off
Hello, this is a commom problem. The cooling fan is not working correctly and you need a new controller. The part number is 8996619267611 and costs about £28.00.

The oven switches itself off after a non-consistant time ( anything between 10 & 40 mins )or temperature ( without the timer being activated ), the element,fan and light stop working although the 'Power' light remains on? It then switches itself back on after another non-consistant time (anything between 5 & 40 mins )

Hi, I've had a similar problem with my electrolux EOB4633. I've replaced the "thermal cut out unit" and it's working now. Basically this unit switches on the outer casing fan ( on top in my oven ) to keep the casing from overheating. When the thermal cut out doesn't work it fails to switch on the fan and the casing overheats, the oven then cuts out completely until it has cooled down and the cycle starts again.
The bit to be replaced ( part no 8996619267611 ) is located on top of the oven, under the outer cover, just behind the timer & selector switch. It's a small ( 1inch long ) silicon sleeve with 4 wires coming out of it, just unplug the wires and replace it with the new one ( unplug/disconnect the power to the oven, or switch of the power at the mains switch first ), then remove the oven outer top cover ( all you need is a screwdriver ). You'll see the offending unit, probably tie wrapped to one of the wire bundles, quite easily - mine was blackened and charred.

Hi ,I posted this problem as well (ROYP75) I fixed the problem by replacing the printed circuit board(this amongst other things controls the fan speed).If you can remove and replace self tapping screws and replace wires like for like on the circuit board you can do this.Isolate from gas and electric, remove oven back taking care with fan wires, wires connected to circuit board and fan connected to oven back once removed you will see circuit board and from their it's just a case of swapping parts .circuit board was purchased from espares .co.uk part no es660722 hope you find this helpful

Could be caused by either of following;
1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).
Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
