Question about Dacor Epicure ERD36 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven door won't open

I've had a Dacor ERD36 for over 4 years. A couple of days ago I used the oven with no problem, but today the oven door won't open. I did not use the self cleaning feature on the oven. I tried pressing the Cancel/Secure button, and even shutting off the power to the oven, but nothing seems to work. Please let me know what else I can try! Thanks

Re: 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.

Since we bought our Maytag Gemini 9 years ago, every time I use the oven cleaning function, I get an f9-4 error and cannot clean my oven. Is there anything I can do to bypass this? Its just too expensive...

Oven Cleaner can be used instead of letting the ovens "Self Clean". This error report you are getting could be a couple of things, 1 the oven latching mechanism may have gone on the blink (this is the part that locks the door during the cleaning process to prevent any opening of the door during cleaning) 2 it could be that the oven will not reach the self cleaning temp. any longer (this temp is much higher than the hi broil) Good Luck
