Clips holding hinges on Dacor Epicure ECPS127/130 oven door won't release
I removed my oven door to clean more thoroughly but cannot reinsert. I notice that there are clips on the hinges that have flipped up and seem to be impeding the closing of the door. I suspect these clips are part of the locking mechanism during the self cleaning phase.
Do you know how those clips can be released when the door is out of its frame?

Look at the hinges. There are 2 small little locking clips. Make sure they set properly. Likely both clipped on in order to reinsert door. Both must be likely flipped toward you. Try it both ways. After door is reinserted. Flip clips back away from you.
look for a hi limit thermo in burner box or on back of oven . if it has over heated this would cause this . dacor has a resetable one . it may be located on left side panel will have to be removed . ck elect sch tof location .. mm
First take the two inside screws out, (found at the top of the door) they will pop out when you have both sides off so make sure to take them all the way out so you dont lose a washer or one of the screws. The handle is actually secured by these 2 screws and will come off of the door when you remove them.. your metal door can bend slightly in this process, so be careful. as soon as the handle and screws are off you can clean inside of the 2 pieces of glass, also a good time to clean off the opposite side of the door behind the handle. only take the 2 screws off no need to remove the full door. I used a magic eraser to remove the grease and then I cleaned the glass with glass cleaner. I used a small vice to secure the door when putting the handle back on, but you could have someone to hold the piece togeather for you too. (I have a frigidaire stainless steel model)
On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher. Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds. The temp display is replaced by 00. Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments. When finished push cancel (or just do nothing). Good luck. I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire. It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too. May be something else wrong with my oven though?
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: http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html
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 broil timer 2 (momentary push only) stop time clock
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).
