Customer Question

Hi! I have an electrolux icon oven. I locked the controls for the control panel and oven door and when I tried to turn it off, I developed problems. The door unlocked but the controls did not. When I held down the lock icon, I got error F11. Now I can't use my oven, my door is locked OPEN and the controls are still locked. Help!

Hi, Im sorry for your trouble may I have model# XXXXX and In the meantime Id like you try disconnecting the oven from power, either by, turing the circuit breaker off or unplugging it for about 5 minutes.
Let me know what happens thank you

Model # XXXXX Its currently disconnected from the power. We tried that yesterday and it wouldn't stop beeping when the power was turned on and the oven door wouldn't shut. I'll turn it back on now and let you know what it does. Thank you!!!

Ok. Power is back on. Its beeping and says "dr" and "door locked" is flashing (however, the door lock is on and so we can't shut the oven door). It also says "PF."

Hi,

Ok it sounds like the oven temp probe inside the oven is bad. they do go bad,
its an easy fix to replace that part, just a couple of screws and carefully pull the two wires til you reach the connector.
be sure not to drop them behind the stove wall. Otherwise you need to remove the rear of the stove to retieve it.
If there is anything further Just ask meSmile

Where inside the oven is the oven temp probe and what does it look like?
Expert:  Tech Michael replied 7 years ago.
Hi its on the back wall inside and just sticks out a bit.Smile
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Replacing that should allow us to "unlock" the door so we can finally close it and use the oven again? I'll try to find a replacement piece in the morning. Thanks!

Most likely yes.Smile
