We've just moved into a new house that has an Electrolux Pyrolytic, under counter electric oven. It seems that previous owners had it disconnected and we cannot find cords or wires for re-connection. Is this a job for a professional, or is it something we can manage? If we can do it, would anyone know where we would find the cord/wire on the oven - it doesn't seem to be in back..?

Re: Need help with re-installation
Ovens don't usually come with a cord. check handbook for cable size and you should find a connection block behind a plate at back. just connect to outlet making sure you get connections correct - they are usually identified on terminal block

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.
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.
We have experienced the same problem. We have a service tech coming to fix it. The knob has come off. It seems that the internal spring has dislodged itself. This will be claimed under warranty. Ours is 5 months old. Our other Linear combo oven and coffee machine seem to be more solid/sturdy.
