Electrolux EOC6690X Pyrolytic Door won't close properly

The door of my oven won't close properly as the switch, which is located on the upper left hand side, doesn't seem to engage correctly. As such, the fan oven won't heat up. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this?

Why is my electrolux oven is ringing non stop after using pyrolitic cleaning

Hello Avishag, thanks for your post!
From what you have described your Electrolux oven is ringing after you have used the pyrolytic cleaning. Your control panel may need to be reset and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would need your model number to further assist you. You can locate that information on the frame of the door on a white or silver tag. Once I have that information I would be happy to assist you further. -Matt

How do I clean the electrolux oven? It won't start after i take the racks out

As you did not specify the exact model I assume that this is a self-cleaning oven, in other words with pyrolytic cleaning. It has a microswitch which is activated by removing the racks and just because that you can not run the pyrolytic cleaning otherwise racks would be destroyed. Do not forget that the temperature during pyrolytic cleaning is app. 500 degrees Celsius. For that reasons the oven door is locked when temperature increasing to app. 300 degrees and unlocked when the temperature decreasing to the app. 200 degrees. It is clear that when you remove the racks only program that you can run is pyrolytic cleaning.

Oven overheating

Your thermostat is STUCK. Replace. Your 'tripping mains' is your clue that your power is over loaded. Have an electrician check your boxes to make sure all is ok AFTER fixing stove.

When the pyrolytic function is switched on the oven starts the process then after about ten minutes the code f1 appears on the digital control panel and stops

Hello katefreeman1 - Typically error code F1 indicates that the range has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). A certified technician will need to check the RTD sensor probe and/or EOC and replace if necessary. Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart range. Usually this will clear most false error codes. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.

The oven door won't close all the way. The "lock" light on the upper left is on. No amount of fiddling has solved this problem and oven is unusable. Help please!


The door lock assembly is bad and should be replaced, you can try to move it but that won't help and will have to be replaced to solve this issue. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Upper oven turn on and off then puts f9

F9 indicates a problem with the door latch circuit. Holding the door in the open position, push in the door switch until the cavity light goes off. Put the upper oven in the clean cycle and watch to see if the door latch cycles.

If the door latch mechanism is working correctly, the latch should stop in the closed position (the door will not shut all the way now). If the door latch does not even move and the F9 error appears, which is highly likely, you definitely have a problem with the latch circuit. (If the door latch did cycle to the closed position, cancel the self-clean mode to cycle the latch back to the open position.)

First, check that there are no loose wires on the door latch switches. Also check that none of the wires are pinched between the latch mechanism and the Oven Control Unit. Repair any wires that may be damaged and reconnect any connections that maybe loose. If you have just made any repairs, try putting the oven into bake mode with the door closed and test.

If there was no wiring that needed repaired and all connections looked good, test each of the door switches to be operating properly. Disconnect the wires from one switch at a time and perform a continuity test on the switch. In the open position your meter should read "OL", in the closed position it should emit a tone, or read "0.0". If either switch fails this test, replace the switch and test your oven again.

If none of the above conditions exist, the Oven Control is not reading input from the door latch sensor and needs to be replaced.

Jenn-air JJW9630CAS - double wall oven -door won't close, even after hinges replaced

On my double oven the bottom door was not closing by at least 21/2 inches the upper door would allow the light to stay on . Upon close examination this problem appeared to be the door was too low which did not allow the gasket to seat in the oven cavity, holding the door open. new hinges and receptors did not resolve this condition.This is how I corrected this condition. 1 open the doors one at a time and lock the hinges.2 remove the doors from the receptors (be careful they are heavy) and set aside. 3 remove mounting screws holding oven in cabinet. 4 slide oven forward enough to hold onto receptor sockets on left and right sides lower and upper 5 remove receptor sockets by removing the screws in front of oven(be careful to hold on to the receptor so it doesnt fall behind oven into cabinet)7 with a center punch punch a start point 1/8 inch above the existing screw holes and drill appropriate size hole for screw THE HOLES MUST MATCH UPPER AND LOWER RECEPTOR OR THE SCREWS ON THE LOWER DOOR WILL SCRATCH THE UPPER DOOR .8 attach receptors to oven in new holes 9 slide oven back into cabinet and replace screws removed in step three 10 attach doors into receptors and push locks forward into receptor cavity attach lower door first and check for operation then upper door open slowly and check enough clearance exists for the screws on the lower door miss the upper door . If more clearance is needed elongate the holes drilled earlier(repeat steps 1 through 5) and slide receptor up on upper door. NOTE The receptors are not in a sealed space in the oven cavity and are not exposed to any heat. Periodically check the screws for tightness. After performing this procedure Both doors close all the way and the light is no longer a problem Now 20 minutes cook time MEANS 20 MINUTES COOK TIME.

Electrolux Oven EOG9330

Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].
