Question about Electrolux EOB6636X Ultrafan Electric Single Oven

Electrolux Oven EOB6630, similar to above

Hi, we have just moved into our new house and the oven heats up, but then after 10 mins or so it completely shuts down and loses its heat, once it is cooled down the oven powers back up and it works fine. I know nothing about ovens but cannot afford for an electrician to come and investigate so your help would be very much appreciated.

    I had the same problem with Electrolux EOB5630 and a local electrician replaced the thermal cut out as above, but it still cuts out. He checked everything and could not figure out what is wrong. He went away to have a think aobut it and said he'd found that it could be something to do with the timer??? He couldn't get a reasonable price for a replacement timer (approx £170 was the best price he could find!). I asked him if he could just bypass the timer and remove it, but the law won't let him
    Any other thoughts? Don't want to pay for the replacement timer - may as well get a new oven.

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.

Good luck!

    Thankyou so much for this advice, it's years since it was posted but I have an oven 7 years old and just fixed it thanks to you. The part really varied in price, I found the cheapest at about eighteen pounds (it won't let me put the name in, just search the part code). So basically you saved me lots of dosh doing it myself. Easy as 1-2-3 (4) there was only 4 wires to remove and replace with the new part, done in 15 mins.

Owen fan always run, after plug owen in. How to stop it or reset it?

Your Fan thermostat has failed, now the cooling fan will run forever trying to cool the broken part... Look for the thermostat in the wiring diagram that is with the oven, meter it for continuity, and if it fails, use the model number to order a new part from a local part store- your model number represents nothing here in America or I would tell you the part #!

I have a eob6630 Electrolux cooker. Top element / bottom and work ok. But oven cuts out approx 20 mins when cookin. Then switches off. But comes back on when cools. Approx 20 mins. Can anyone advise about...

From my experience the most common reason for this failure is a thermal switch for cooling fan. It is located on the upper side between the wiring and its function is to switch off the cooling fan when the temperature drops even though the oven is already turned off. If the cooling fan does not work then it will increase the temperature on the cabinet and the main temperature limiter will switch off the oven.

When oven is set for heating. it does not heat up

You will need a multimeter to check for th resistance of the coils.remove power plug.
Check from the power plug to the main switch .When the switch is turned on the line must come till the coil.
Now disconnect and test the coils , if open resistance the coils are burnt and must be replaced with the same type /wattage.
However if coil is good then it can be the thermostat cut off(UNIT), the switch or the wires.

This would appear to be the ring element around the fan that has failed and will need to be replaced.You will need to power off unit,then remove the back panel inside oven 4 screws in corners,Be careful with Thermostat held in place by clips above or on back panel.You may find 3 or 4 screws holding ring element.Gently pull towards you,being careful that the cables come with it.Check element with multimeter to see if open circuit if its ok then it may be a thermostat fault.If it is a faulty element,

get your replacement element,remove the cables off old one and put onto new one.Then push back into place and refix all.

Hope this helps.

Electrolux oven wont heat up after power cut

sounds like the fan element could have blown, causing the electrics to trip out. best thing to do is remove all the racking
and then the rear panel that covers the fan and element. if he element has blown most of the time it will be visible.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
