I bought an Electrolux 30" gas range with IQ touch controls about 5 months ago. A couple of days ago, the clock display came up with missing segments and some half-on segments, and the oven light stopped coming on automatically when the door is opened. I told the controller to reset to factory defaults - no improvement. I shut off the breaker for about 15 minutes to try a "hard" reset - no improvement. I called the seller asking for service, and he told me that the clock module interfaces with every control in the stove and that it probably got hit with a power surge. Then he said (as if I should have known about this problem) that I should have plugged the range into a surge-suppressor. Apart from the obvious question of why he didn't tell me that when I bought the range AND the fact that there is no such recommendation in the Installation or Use manuals comes the most important question. Electrolux must know from their warranty-service records that such failures are common. Why, oh, why didn't they design a surge-suppressor (and perhaps a fast-acting breaker) into every range with this problem? Such components are dirt cheap and would save money in parts and service. Anybody here got a ballpark figure on the cost of installing these components during the manufacturing of these ranges? BTW, the range was $2000.
