F13 = Bad EEPROM Identification/Checksum error.

Turn the power off at the circuit breaker or unplug the oven for 60 seconds. If the error code returns when you turn the power back onto the unit, then you have a bad display control board and you will need to replace it.

Found those remedies online already. Have turned off breaker twice, and Electrolux sent two replacement display control boards. I have tried both of them, and still get F 13 fault code.

then you have a bad communication between your main relay board and the display board. Check the wiring between each board and if it checks good replace the main relay board.

Is that something that should be done by a trained professional, or can I do it easily myself?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
probably best left to a trained professional when the issue is not the obvious one only because tracking down a loose or bad wire can be tricky and deceptive. So before spending a lot of money on another board I would have someone look at the wiring.
