I have a 10 year old Electrolux induction range. Model: EW30lS6CJSB. I was cooking on Power booster mode (Pb) that suddenly I heard a bang and noticed a red flash light on upper left corner of cooktop and then shut down entirely. I noticed that the circuit breaker for induction range tripped. Once I turned it back on, it is showing E 75. None of heat elements of the cooktops is currently working but the oven is working fine. I asked a technician to come and have a look. Without even opening up the stove he said, “PCB Main board control” should be replaced which is about $1600.

Question 1: Do you agree with this diagnose? Would there be any chance that e.g. filter board is gone and should be replaced?

Question 2: Is it worth paying for a repair?

Thanks

  • Repair or replace questions will depend on price of a new unit and age. 10 plus years any repair over 30% of new would be questionable, my opinion. Hearing bangs from any cooking device usually not good.

  • New one would cost 5-6 K$

  • Since you heard a loud bang, I am afraid the damage is severe.

If the power supply is good and no wire popped loose due to overcurrent all fingers point to the generator around $1000.

Thanks to modern low voltage control modules which are susceptible to power surges.

Typical things that give out: Relays, transistors, capacitors, including smd types, resistors, and regulators. And sometimes the transformer which mitigates the high frequency DC.
