Going out on this one this afternoon, error code 30 and induction cooktop inop.  It's a pretty sure thing that the noise filter is bad.  

 

The filter board, PN 5304454971, is sold alone at a cost of over $500

Or you can replace the all the electronics in a pre-assembled set, PN 318329601, for about the same price:

I've never taken one of these beasts apart before but in reviewing the service manual, it looks like an unholy nightmare.  Am I looking at it wrong?  Has anyone replaced any of the induction electronics in these Electrolux induction ranges before?

 

Domo!

i have a job pending on one, but havent been back with parts yet.
worked on a KA induction top recently that used an assembly that looked very similar to the 2nd photo...was a pain but nothing you cant handle.
the kA was all from the top...top came off with just a couple screws around the outer edge after it came up out of the cutout ...then several more layers to get down to the power and filter boards...no need to tell you, be careful and deliberate while labeling wires for reconnection and wear yer anti static wristband. let us know how the electrofux goes...

I'm having trouble with that model number.  But if it's the slide in Electrolux, I feel your pain.  I had to replace the electronic controls on the non induction range when they first came out.  And I had no manual to go by.  That big plastic bullnose really threw me for a loop.  Considering the teardown for your repair, might as well replace the whole assembly.  Cracking that thing open once should be enough.

Domo, mah bruvahs.  I went out on this one and found that the filter board is bad.  I would replace the entire electronics set for the same price and quoted $920 for the repair (Blue Book price).  

 

She's going to replace the range.

 

Dodged the bullet on that one!

I've done a few if those, PITA, but none COD..

They're just not worth fixing unless you get into replacing individual components in the board.

Had one call on one of these cooktops, tech before me ordered the wrong parts. I got laid off and he didn't.  He's one of those techs that goes around getting finished with his calls really fast because he orders parts and leaves and makes sure he doesn't go back on them.  I only order what I need, take my time on my calls so it's done correctly and I get laid off because I had too much overtime. NOT FAIR

That would be the way to go not only for the price, but I have seen more than once a cascading effect where all the boards go bad at the same time, the filter along with the right and left power boards going as a group...

It seems everything Electrosux manufacturers these days self destructs in about 2-5 years.

"Metrics" -- It's all about the numbers, not the quality of work. Unfortunate that the cheaters know how to manipulate the numbers and look good on paper... but I digress...
