Question about Electrolux Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Hi I have fitted an electrolux hob (which replaced my existing hob.) My problem is that only 2 rings are working. I have 5 connection holes on the hob as follows, 1 - LIVE 2 - LIVE 3 - EMPTY 4 - NEUTRAL 5 - EARTH I have connected the LIVE wire to No.1, The Neatrul to No.4 and the EARTH to No.5. Do I have to make a connection between 1 and 2 (i.e. the two LIVE connection holes)?? I'd appreciate any guidance. Many thanks Keith

Part of each ring (a triangular slice) on new ceramic hob does not light up. Is this normal?


Thank you for your inquiry, tony!

From what you have described one part of the ceramic hub is not lighting up on your Electrolux cooktop. It sounds like you could be experiencing a faulty burner or sensor. The best way to achieve a resolution on your cooktop is to consult with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed and repaired if necessary. Hopefully this is helpful. -OOS

WHY DOES THE INDIVIDUAL COOKING ZONES ONLY WORK WHEN THE LEFT FRONT COOKING ZONE (180mm PLATE) IS TURNED ON AND YET THE LFET FRONT COOKING ZONE (180 mm PLATE) WILL NOT WORTK WHEN TURNED ON BY ITSELF O


There are 3 answers possible for your question:
1) your heater has a Thermolimiter without Hot Warning Light indicator connector and the job is dne by the electronics tht manage the zone. In this case the timer indicates that the hob is cold but obviously it is not. The fault is at the Electronics.

2) The Heater is a double Zone (with an inner ring and/or an oval side) in this case the part that it is failing to switch on is activated only in the sequential Inner ring-Outer ring. If the temp of 550C is reached the Thermolimiter does the cut of power cycling +/- 50C in order to avoid exceeding the 550C nominal.

3) Wrong Wiring if the heater was replaced. The harness could have been swapped around. Heaters could be Ceramaspeed or EGO that have inverted power and thermolimiter faston. Eika heaters are different too. but for this you need to see what is inside the hob and it is dangerous if you are not a qualified electrician.

We have a Sterling 1100E induction hob and have random problems with the hob not working at all, and tonight it just sits there in darkness but peeping constantly. The 2 ceramic rings work but not the


Some times the pots that you may be using are not designed for use in induction cooking. If you are, It might be the size of pot. The peeping sound might be the cook top looking for the pot. But when all else fails. Turn the stove off at the Breaker count to 12. Turn back on. Reboot. Hope one of these work.

Seized screws in Stoves 'Range 1000G Gas Range Cooker (LPG)


I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!

A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

Beko dc543 oven and top left top right bottom right hobs not working bottom left hob is working and so is grill i have checked all terminal wires and all ok i had this problem before under...


I AM NOT AN ELECTRICIAN ! But i have had the same problem of the oven and the back right ring not working and have found the cause of this. For some reason there is a thermal fuse running inline on a live wire inside the cooker if you feel competent yourself in replacing this fuse you will save a good deal of money on call out fees, here is how to do it. SAFETY is the crucial, First of all isolate the power source to the cooker, pull out cooker so you can get access to the back of the cooker, remove the 9 screws ( i think there is 9) to remove the back plate from the cooker, this is quite heavy because there is a small block of concrete fastened to the bottom left hand side of the back plate, looking at the inside of the cooker on the right hand side you will see a white wire which has been secured via a small screwed clip, this wire has a transparent sleeve covering the thermal fuse, remove the sleeve by sliding it up or down the wire, check the fuse by with a meter just to be sure, if it is blown cut the fuse out. replace fuse the same way it was fitted. replace the sleeve and fit the back on the cooker SAFETY FIRST switch on power and try oven and back ring, mine works fine. like i said at the start i am not an electrician, but i can not understand why there is a thermal fuse running inline to the oven which is linked the back right hob. all the best folks Hobbo from Chess.

Electric hob


You have a faulty heater element on the hob, what is probably happening is it is ok until it gets hot then it shorts and blows the fuse. You need to identify which hot ring is faulty by trying them in turn (if there is more than one that is) and then replace it.

I want to replace an erratic element on a really old Viking stove. The new element plugs into a new recepticle,but the latter has 2 wires, whereas the old stove has 4 wires that were connected directly...


This can't be done. The old elements were a two part element with 2 seperate coils. The heat was controlled by using one or both elements at different voltages to select the heat output. The new 2 wire element just pulses the current on and off to control heat. It is just one big element. Try to purchase a generic replacement burner that will fit the hole. Usually these come with the chrome ring and everything. They are somewhat adjustable but will not match your existing burners. GE used to make this. Another possibility is if the control to the burner is a knob that turns, Replace the switch with a new infinate heat switch. If this switch will mount properly. Just grab the two 220 volt legs from the old switch, Ignore and tape the neutral, ground, and pilot leads. Connect to the line side of the switch. Use only 2 of the old wires going to the burner and connect them to the new one.
