About - Electrolux EW30GS65GW

The Electrolux EW30GS65GW is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas range models like the EW30GS65GW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful burner could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3-quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the gentlest burner's ability to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful burner to its lowest flame to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

What huge deception. Heat loss on high output burner makes it useless; takes at least 15 to 20 minutes to boil 4 cups of water.Had to change mother board twice in the fist six months. Temperature probe does not work even after changing mother board. Clock can't keep time... oven door does not stay half open and can stay hardly closed creating a loss of heating capacity; a night mare that we are just about to throw out of the window...If you buy extended warraty is a must...

This range is very unreliable. This is the electric version, not the gas. I feel the heat is affecting the electronics. Started having issues as soon as the warranty expired. Have replaced the glass panel control assembly and the electronic oven control board and the triac board which controls the oven lights and the fans. The last board lasted 3 weeks and is out again. When each board goes bad the unit is unusable until parts are ordered and put in which took 5 weeks for the oven control board. when they go out either the unit continously beeps or the oven lights will not go out until the unit is uplugged. Could have bought a new range for the amount of money spent on repairs and Electrolux is virtualy NO help. They will gladly set up another service technician to come out and charge for more repairs but offer no other assistance as far as checking product history to investigate if this is a flawed design or lemon unit or if it is a isolated incident so I assume it is common. By their reactions and comments I get the impression this is a common issue they deal with. Definately not worth the money.
