I think 'colburn' has answered this one wrt to cooling fan controller.
My problem is similar/identical as described previously. When hot the oven control cuts out until the oven cools then works normally.
Question: how easy is the control unit to replace? and where can I obtain the part?
Thanks in advance
It is not the control unit. Remove oven from housing, switch power off and remove either the top panel or the back of the oven
You will see two wires going to a thermal overload cut out, looks likse a round thermostat. Join the 2 wires togther bypassing the toc, it will now work okay

There is a couple of things that could cause this. This oven has a cooling fan that is supposed to keep the electronics from overheating. There is a thermo cut-off that is supposed to shut it down if this happens. If it worked like it should, all you have to do is replace the thermo cut-off and possibly the fan. If it didn't the control board will also have to be replaced.
It is a safety thermostat that is cutting the oven off, due to overheating.
It could be that the external cooling fan is not working, or the cut out itself is faulty.
Check to see if you can hear the fan working.
This is usually located on the top of the oven , at the rear of the oven, on the top .
Hope this helps.
There are thermal cutouts for both ovens. When the fan oven cuts out, does the thermostat display and the oven lamps go out as well or do they stay on? Is the oven cooling fan working ok, i.e. does it run for about 10 mins after you turn all the controls off? Do you think the oven thermostat is working ok and not running too hot? If it is, Lakeland do an oven thermometer for about 5 pounds that you can check the thermostats with.
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 turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
Ther are a couple of possibilities that could be causing your problem.
A thing called the safety stat could be cutting the oven out, it is designed to cut off the oven in the case of overheating This is what brings on the cooling fan. Sometimes they cut out prematurly for example you may not have enough vetilation, check for restricted or blocked vents.
The stat itself could be faulty again causing the oven to cut out,and then as it cools down it resets itself and so on and so on.
The thing to do after you hve checked evrything else is toichange the stat.
It is usually located on the top of the outer oven compartment, it is about 1" or so long with a feed in and out of it
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and merry xmas.
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.
We have the same problem with our oven, AEG B2190-1.It started on on Christmas day[worst day of year]gets up to temperature after 10-15 minutes cuts out everything switches off until the oven has cooled down, The oven is only 18 months old. We have been told that it is a thermostat problem.
