Question about Electrolux Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have an Electrolux over-the-stove oven Model #EI30MH55GSB. This microwave vents out the top and is causing condensation to build on our custom cabinets - which in turn is ruing the cabinet door. Any solution for this apparent design flaw?

You can download the installation guide here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

I would replace all the bulbs while you have it out so you can start fresh, so to speak.

SOURCE: Microwave range hood install -- stud in middle of exhaust

You have a few options, First off, I am assuming that the stud you refer to is an outside wall. Assuming that is true, then you have a few options.... one of them is to cut thru the stud and run the vent out. Even if that stud is on a bearing wall ( meaning it is carrying a roof load above it) ... It is unlikely to pose a problem if that one stud has been compromised with it cut out, If that concerns you.. and you are handy, you can open that area of wall up from the inside and box the area that the vent will be located in with short pieces of 2x4 to the studs on either side of it... Another option is to vent the hood up thru the cabinet above and direct that out slightly offset to the stud in the wall..
One thing I have done is to cut the stud out and then to place a piece of 1/2" plywood in the area that the micro/hood will be located and attach that piece with drywall screws to the studs in the wall.. That piece of plywood will help support the stud you cut when you screw it to the adjacent studs and also act as a place to secure the hood mounting bracket on the wall. Granted, it shifts the hood out from the wall 1/2 " but then you have plenty of surface to secure the plate and don't have to worry about hitting a stud or using wall anchors.. I hope you understand my comments..If not...please respond to this and I will provide additional information to clarify this... Hope this helps !

I would direct you to first refer to your installation instructions to be sure everything is installed correctly.

Then I would refer you to the owner's manual for information on checking and cleaning / changing the grease filter or charcoal filter.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

The LCD display is not showing the numbers correctly. It looks like the numbers are missing "lines", like an 8 can look like a 3, the 8 can look like a 0, etc. Any ideas?


It is the control board that needs to be replaced. The LCD display is connected to the board. If this is an above the stove microwave the problem was caused by the steam from boiling water on the stove top. you can prevent it from happening again by using the vent fan consistantly.

The exhaust system never has worked. Will not pull any air from the cooking stove under micro as it was supposed to.


Check the cabinet over the top of the microwave, the unit should be vented to the outside of your home, if not it was a venting model and just never connected to the vents.

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

Or the convection fan, if it is a convection model?

When is it coming on?

Is it coming on whenever you cook on the stove top?

Replace vent over stove with microwave & the


So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.
