I have the same problem. The oven was working fine until I cleaned it. There was a power failure during the cleaning, but it appeared to function properly until the cleaning cycle finished. I spoke to Dacor customer service and they told me there is a "high limit" switch to ensure that high temperatures do not damage the electronics. They recommended calling a local servicer to come and check the oven and reset the switch. They indicated that the servicer may be willing to tell me over the phone where the switch is so that I could reset it myself. They like to have someone come out just to make sure nothing else is wrong with the oven. Given that there was a power failure in my case, chances are a simple reset will do the trick. You may have a similar situation. If anyone knows where the switch is, it would be good to share on this forum. In any event, I'll call the local service department tomorrow and try to find out.

Two things sharyn, first check the breakers. It is possible that one of two that control the stove tripped...they are in tandem. Shut them off and back on. If no fix: You'll have to remove and test the element. (if more than one element is involved here...it might be the thermostat) Breakers off, pull the element out and have someone take an ohm meter and test the unit. Still no good? Then it will be the thermostat or relay. Let me know what you find.

first of all the yellow/orange light glowing is a known fault. it needs a slight wiring modification to fix it, however it dose not affect the operation of the oven nor is it dangerous.
now to the heating problem, there is a round element at the rear witch surrounds the fan. is this element getting hot? if not then it most likely needs replacing. it could be the thermostat but more likely the element.

If the fan is running, then it is safe to say that the oven element has gone.
Replace with a new one,(element that is).,
Plz rate this solution.
