2 years and 6 control panels later.....
on July 27, 2011
Electrolux has finally replaced my wall oven. I have to say that when the previous unit was actually functional, it was wonderful. Very fast, near-perfect results on souffles, puff pastry, gougeres, Thanksgiving turkey, hearth bread, enriched bread, pizza. A few problems with the cooking results-- the Thanksgiving turkey bent the oven rack, causing it to magically roll towards me in subsequent uses. This was both dangerous and annoying. Heat in the oven was fairly even, but the right side definitely heated up more, necessitating a turn of whatever food I was cooking mid-bake.
Problem: my sensor and control panel continued to fail. I would receive the F5 and F10 error messages approximately 6 weeks after the sensor/ control panel combo were replaced. The only way of shutting off the oven (and stopping the annoying error-beep) was to cut off power from the breaker box. I was advised by Electrolux that using self clean or operating the oven at a very high temperature for pizza or bread can cause the sensor to fail. This was obviously very frustrating.
I'm hoping my new replacement unit is not a lemon like the first. If you can get a functional oven, you will get good results.
