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?

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
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.
Make sure the oven door hinges are open fully and locked then reseat making sure the notch on the bottom of the hinges seats on the cabinet locating plate, then release the hinges and close the door....theese hinges can take your fingers off so be very careful
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.
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].
