EW30EF65GSA Oven Door Glass Replaced

I had ordered 1 inner glass, thankfully I only needed 1. There aren’t only 2, there are 3 bleeping pieces of glass in that oven door. Not counting the front glass even.

The new piece of glass is where the old one broke. The one that faces the oven directly. It looked cracked, but taking the door apart the middle piece of glass between the cracks was floating free.

It was torture, but mostly because we couldn’t get the door off, then worked on it while on, but then couldn’t close it and couldn’t remember how the hinges worked, took it out to figure out but didn’t until I found and finally watched some video about putting a pipe on the hinge to move it, oh goodness priceless. I felt so powerful at that point, floop, floop, each side down and push lock up, slide door in, push down lock thingie on both sides. Door closes right. Wow. So much trouble could have been avoided but “now we know” exactly how the dumb hinge works on the oven door.

Also, no more self-clean cycles. No thanks.

Our Electrolux Stove is out of commission

Our EW30EF65GSA suddenly had a major problem over a week ago now. The front right burner, radiant element under a glass top, dual-burner, turned ON but was too hot, like on super HIGH. Turned it off, it was flashing HE as usual and looking settings-wize was OFF, but still burning hot on HIGH and looking full ON.

Since that Thursday mealtime flub-up, we haven’t been able to use the stove at all. I’ve ordered and installed a new burner, that wasn’t it. The burner has Continuity still, but there is no way to test the center piece that is called a “limiter” so changing out the burner was step one of correcting the problem.

I’ve read so many sites, looked up parts, memorized my stove model number without even trying to.

I replaced a board in the back but it wasn’t the one to affect change, but I was happy to have that replaced anyhow, not that it was needed now,  but it would be in the case of it shorting out, etc. New functioning part good, for the most.

So the problem ends up probably being the relay board or the wires … which one I don’t know and will not tackle further. Wire Harness is what needs replaced if it’s a wire and wow, not a fun or easy thing. Not impossible, but I am just sick of this machine.

We will be contacting a technician to come out and … who knows what. I wanted to fix it up more than that, also somehow find a new glass top for it, and some time replace the bottom of the  main oven (I can still do that sometime easily.)

I have another project I’m working on, our Fridgidaire Freezer, model FKFH21F7HW* — I started working on it before the stove starting erroring. When it rains, it pours.
