Below, we have listed the possible reasons why your Electrolux oven keeps turning off and what to do about them.

1. Cooling Fan

The cooling fan prevents an oven from overheating. If the cooling fan fails, the oven will overheat and shut off. Follow the steps listed below to test and replace the cooling fan in an Electrolux oven…

Step 1: Switch off the oven’s circuit breaker to avoid the risk of electrocution.

Step 2: Use a Philips head screwdriver to take out the screws which hold the top panels of the oven in place.

Step 3: Lift the panels off and set them aside.

Step 4: Take out the screws holding the oven’s back panel in place.

Step 5: Set the panel aside.

Step 6: Disconnect the wires from the cooling fan.

Step 7: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the ohms setting.

Step 8: Touch the multimeter probes to the terminals of the cooling fan. If there is no continuity, the cooling fan is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 9: Take out the screws which hold the cooling fan to the oven.

Step 10: Remove the cooling fan and get a new one.

Step 11: Secure the new cooling fan to the oven with the screws.

Step 12: Reconnect the wires to the cooling fan making sure that each one goes to the right place.

Step 13: Reposition the oven’s back panel and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 14: Reposition the oven’s top panels.

Step 15: Return the screws which hold the top panels in place.

Step 16: Switch the oven’s circuit breaker back on.

The video below will give you a visual of how to replace an oven cooling fan.

If this method for replacing a cooling fan doesn’t work on your Electrolux oven, contact a technician to test and replace the cooling fan.

2. Temperature Sensor

If the cooling fan isn’t faulty, the next component you should check is the temperature sensor. If the sensor fails, it could cause the oven to overheat and turn off. Follow the steps listed below to replace the sensor of an Electrolux oven…

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

Step 2: Using a quarter inch nut driver, take out the screws which hold the oven’s lower back panel in place.

Step 3: Set the panel aside and take out the screws holding the temperature sensor to the oven.

Step 4: Disconnect the wire plug from the sensor.

Step 5: Test the sensor using a multimeter. If the sensor is faulty, get a new one.

Step 6: Connect the wire plug to the new sensor.

Step 7: Screw the new sensor to the oven.

Step 8: Reposition the oven’s back panel and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 9: Plug the oven’s power cord back in.

3. Bake Element

If the bake element in an oven starts to fail, it will cause the oven to turn on and off. Follow these steps to test and replace your Electrolux oven bake element…

Step 1: Unplug the oven’s power cord and open the door.

Step 2: Slide out the oven racks.

Step 3: Set the racks aside.

Step 4: Using a quarter inch nut driver, take out the two screws on the oven’s back wall which hold the bake element in place.

Step 5: Pull the bake element forward and disconnect the wires from the terminals.

Step 6: Test the bake element using a multimeter. If there is no continuity, the bake element should be replaced.

Step 7: Get a replacement element and connect the wires to the terminals.

Step 8: Push the element in and hold it in place with the two screws.

Step 9: Slide the racks back into the oven.

Step 10: Shut the oven door and plug the power cord back in.

The video below will show you how to replace the bake element in an Electrolux oven.

4. Control Board

If you have tested all the components above and none of them is faulty, the control board may be. If the control board fails, the oven won’t function how it’s meant to. Before replacing this component, test all the other components above.

2. Broil Element

Similar to the bake element, if the broil element shorts out, it could cause the oven to stay on. Follow these steps to test and maybe replace the broil element in an Electrolux oven…

Step 1: Unplug the oven’s power cord from the outlet.

Step 2: Open the door of the oven.

Step 3: Remove the oven racks and set them aside.

Step 4: Use a quarter inch nut driver to take out the screws which hold the support brackets of the broil element in place.

Step 5: Take out the two screws on the oven’s back wall which hold the broil element in place.

Step 6: Pull out the broil element and disconnect the wires from the terminals.

Step 7: Test the broil element for continuity using a multimeter. If there is no continuity, the broil element should be replaced.

Step 8: Get a new broil element.

Step 9: Connect the wires to the broil element and push it in.

Step 10: Return the two screws which hold the broil element in place.

Step 11: Reposition the broil element’s support brackets and hold them in place with the screws.

Step 12: Slide the racks back into the oven.

Step 13: Close the door of the oven.

Step 14: Plug the oven’s power cord back in.

3. Temperature Sensor

The temperature sensor monitors the oven’s temperature. When the oven reaches the set temperature, the sensor sends a signal to the control board to cut off the voltage. Once the oven’s temperature starts to drop, the temperature sensor signals the control board to resume sending the voltage. If the temperature sensor fails, it could keep signaling the control board to send voltage. Read the “Electrolux Oven Turning Off” section above to replace the sensor.

4. Control Board

If you have checked all the above components and none of them is faulty, the control board probably is. Before you replace the control board, make sure to test all the components above. If none of them is faulty, read the “Electrolux Oven Turning Off” section above.
