Electrolux Oven Is Not Working [Proven Solutions]

If your Electrolux oven is not working and you would like to know why and how to fix it, this article is for you. We will list the causes of this problem and how to fix them.

Electrolux Oven Display Is Not Working — How To Fix

Below, we have listed the possible reasons you Electrolux oven display won’t work and how to fix them.

1. Thermal Fuse

Before you look at any components we list here, make sure to reset your oven by switching the circuit breaker off for 5 minutes. If the display of your Electrolux oven is not working after resetting it, follow the steps below to test and replace the thermal fuse in an Electrolux oven…

Step 1: Pull the oven away from the wall and unplug the power cord.

Step 2: Take out the screws holding the oven’s lower back panel in place using a quarter inch nut driver.

Step 3: Set the panel aside.

Step 4: Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is usually close to the terminals of the bake or broil element.

Step 5: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the ohms setting.

Step 6: Touch the multimeter probes to the terminals of the thermal fuse. If there is no continuity, the thermal fuse is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 7: Take out the screw or screws which hold the thermal fuse in place.

Step 8: Get a new thermal fuse.

Step 9: Screw the new thermal fuse to the oven and reconnect the wires to the terminals.

Step 10: Return the oven’s back panel and the screws which secure it.

Step 11: Plug the oven back into place.

Also follow the steps above to replace your thermal fuse if your Electrolux oven is not working after self cleaning.

2. Burnt Wires

If the thermal fuse isn’t faulty, some of the wires connected to the control board may be burnt. Remove the oven’s back panels. Inspect all the wires connected to the control board. If the wires are burnt in any way, contact a technician to fix them. If the wires aren’t burnt, keep reading.

3. Control Board

If the thermal fuse isn’t faulty and none of the wires connected to the control board is burnt, the board itself is probably faulty. Before you replace the control board, make sure to test the thermal fuse and inspect the wires. If none of them is faulty, read this article: Electrolux Oven Not Heating & Related Issues [Solutions] to replace the control board in an Electrolux oven.

Electrolux Oven Is Not Working After Power Cut — How To Fix

Electrolux Electric Oven Is Not Working — How To Fix

Below we have listed the possible reasons your electric Electrolux oven is not working and what to do about them.

1. Bake Element

The first and most likely reason an electric Electrolux oven won’t work is because of a faulty bake element. Below, we show how to test and replace this component…

Step 1: Unplug the oven’s power cord for safety.

Step 2: Open the oven’s door.

Step 3: Remove all the oven racks.

Step 4: Get a quarter inch nut driver.

If your Electrolux oven’s bake element isn’t faulty, the next thing you should check for is loose or damaged wires. Inspect the wires going to the oven’s bake element. If the wires aren’t properly connected, reconnect them. If the wires appear to be damaged in any way, contact a technician to fix them.

3. Thermal Fuse

If your Electrolux oven is not working and the display is completely blank, the thermal fuse may be faulty. To determine if this is the case, you will need to test the thermal fuse with a multimeter. Read the article “Electrolux Oven Display Is Not Working” in the section above to test and replace your thermal fuse.
