Typically error code E31 on Electrolux models indicates that it has detected an internal generator error on left side cooking zones. A professional will need to test the cables and connections on left side on the generator control board (dual). The generator control board (LF/LR) in the 3 zones induction mule might need replacing.

Thank you, ***** ***** I already knew as I "googled" the problem" prior to submitting the question, and found the identical answer. I was looking for more detail as to what the generator would cost or the repair would cost. Is this something a technically competent person could handle

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The attached page below shows what that error means. If all cabling is intact, the left side generator board, number 2 in the diagram at the link below, will need to be replaced.


This is a very complex appliance, I would not recommend you attempt to repair it yourself. If you break the top or a board while disassembling it, you will spend much more than a service call. You could expect labor to replace the generator board to be about $200-250.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
