If you call Dacor they will talk you through the solution but you have to have another person ready to turn the breaker off while someone is pushing a button. I have contacted them and am trying to get the instructions emailed.

    There have been some occurrences where the Time readout has been in a 24 hour
    Military Time Format. In addition, there are also instances where the clock is set for a 50
    HZ operational mode causing the readout to gain time.
    If either of these situations occur please perform the following to reset the ERC for proper
    Two persons are required the reset function. The first person should be at the power panel
    (circuit breaker box) and the second person should be at the oven.
    1. Turn the circuit breaker for the oven.
    2. While the power is off, the person at the oven should press and hold the "Clock "
    3. The circuit breaker should then be turned on while the "Clock" button is still depressed.
    Continue to hold the "Clock" button until a single digit number appears. You may then
    release the button.
    4. Using the "Time-Temp" arrow keys, adjust the number in the display to read the digit
    "8", and release button.
    5. After approximately 15 seconds, the time of day will appear.
    6. Set the clock to the correct time of day by following the instructions in the owner's
    The oven will now function properly.

I have a code on my Dacor range model R50305 and the oven wont work. the code is FO. It is a dual fuel model and the stovetop still works, but not able to turn the oven on.

Your clock button is stuck.
Push it several times to dislodge it,then turn off the range power for 30 seconds and plug it back in.
This may correct the problem.
Otherwise you will have to replace the electronic control.

How to increase Dacor oven door spring tension

The hinge is most likely out of adjustment as the tension should not have to be much to hold the door closed. The pivot point and the attachment to the door must be correct however.

The hinges usually have a hole exposed when you open the door to put a nail in so the hinges will be held open to work on them.

Time is on military time how do i switch it back

Hi, from page 6 in the owners manual it says:

"Setting the CLOCK
1. Press CLOCK pad. Indicator word TIME
will flash in the display.
2. Press the appropriate number pads for
the current time. (Time is in a 12-hour
After a power interruption, the last clock time
before the interruption will flash."

The timer goes up to 99 hours and 59 minutes, maybe that is what your seeing.

Dacor ERDS30 clock and display OK, all bake buttons non responsiv

Most likely the interuption of power is what caused the problem. try shutting down the circuit breaker that controls the range for 30 minutes then turn it back on if this does not reset the electronics. You may need to replace the keypanel and /or electronic control as either or both may have been damaged by the power surge.

Rsd 30

I believe I followed the post by Rotu on11/11/06--remove the black grill surrounding the oven door latch (it's held on by 4 black phillips-head screws about 3" on either side of the latch). I had to use a flashlight to see into the space (there are a bunch of wires as I recall). In the middle several inches back you will see a small (about 3/8") red (mine had darkened) button. We used a screwdriver (be sure your circuit breaker is OFF) to reach it and push it down to reset. Replace the grill, turn on the breaker and you are good to go.

Oven door won't open

Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.

Here is the link to the forum:

In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:

Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.

Press and hold these keys on sequence:

convection bake
standard bake
pure convection
timer 2 (momentary push only)
stop time

Finally, we arrive at the test we want:
Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.

Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).

I hope this helps.
