Question about Dacor Epicure ERD30 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

ERSD36S09 Dual Fuel Dacor; broiler doesn't work

The ignitor seems to work (it glows orange a few seconds after turning on), but the ceramic IR broiler doesn't. So, to me it must be the ceramic broiler pad. Anyone agree, or is the ignitor not doing its job? I also noticed the temp. readout on the touch pad only indicates HI, and I can't get it to the LOW setting.

Are there any tricks to replacing either part, or it pretty straight forward?

    My epicure 36 will not come up to any oven temp because the gas ir ceramic broiler will not operate. The igniter is on and gas is occasionally ignited in swirls near the broiler but not the glowing broiler as it should be. After four hours of waiting for the oven to preheat we took the pizza to our son's house to cook in a cheap propane stove.

    Yup, Broiler ignites, blue gas "dances around favoring left side" but does not heat ceramic broiler to the nice golden orange that I expect to broil my juicy steak!
    I am poaching not broiling.

I had a similar problem. My broiler wouldn't light but the igniter was glowing. It turns out this igniter has to glow virtually white hot. If it's red or orange it probably needs replacing. I bought a new one from Appliance Parts Pro's. However, when I look at pictures of these things they all look exactly the same. My guess is all appliance manufacturers use the same unit.

To change it on the Dacor you need to pull off the back panel. Loosen the unit inside by removing the screws and shake the wires so someone else can see which ones. Disconnect the wires from the connectors and tape a piece of thickish string to it. This allows you to pull it out from inside the oven and have a way to get it back in past all the little turns and corners. My replacement had bare ends so I cut off the old connectors and soldered them to the new unit. However, I would guess you could use wire nuts instead.

SOURCE: Frigidaire FGF326ASF Oven/Broiler stopped working.

The igniter is replaced, but still not working.That means igniter is good.-------- need to draw at least 3.2 amps or else they won't open the gas valve correctly and it will either crack the valve open, or open and shut the valve several times when it should just be holding open.

either your safety gas valve is bad, or your control board is bad and not sending down 120 volts. You really need a multimeter to determine which one is really at fault. If you check the 2 wires going to the igniter, test each wire to ground and see if you have 120 volts on one of them. If so, then you need to replace the control gas valve because the neutral line isn't making it through the gas valve to complete the circuit for the igniter. If you're not getting 120 volts, you need to replace the control board.

Those are the 3 parts that would stop the igniter from glowing .
1) the igniter itself.
2) The gas valve. 3) the control board. -------- The igniter is already replaced, so other two possibilities needs to be checked and replaced. ----------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My oven stopped working, broiler works also burners


I'd suggest testing to see if the burners are getting lit. If not, it might mean the ignitor has failed. To check the burner, select Bake to turn on the oven and then open the oven door. After a few seconds you should see an orange glow through the bottom of the oven and hear the hissing of the gas. If you don't, then the burners probably didn't light and I would suspect the ignitor. If it is the ignitor, this posting shows how I fixed my oven with the same problem:

Oven wontr come on, but broiler does//


you have a bad ignitor part number 74007498 and it's around 65 dollars.pull out the racks and remove the floor of the stove and you'll see the ignitor screwed to the burner tube,wet the screws with a wet paper towel,they will come out easier or if it makes it any easier remove the tube and then remove the ignitor.first start the stove if the ignitor glows but doesn't ignite the flame in 40 seconds or less it's bad,if it doesn't glow at all check it for continuity but it sounds like the ignitor is bad,if the new ignitor comes with wire nuts,cut the wires close to the body of the old ignitor,trim some of the wires back on the new ignitor and wire nut them together with the ceramic wire nuts,on some you can get the screws out of the ignitor,cut the wires close to the body,mount the new ignitor,trim back the wires on the new ignitor and wire nut them together and you're done,it doesn't matter how long the wires are just as long as the wire nuts are under the floor and away from the tube.it might help to remove the bottom draw to get at the wires,hope this helps and good luck.

Broiler does not light....Put in new ignitor; still not working. Checked orfice to make sure its LP and not Natural gas. Its number is #56...Is this correct for LP?


The Jenn-Air Broiler LP broiler orifice is part number: AP4091112. A picture of the part is here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-orifice--broiler--lp--item-number-ap4091112.aspx . (To me the number looks like 65 to me. The natural gas version is number 47.)

Check the current draw at the igniter. (The meter must be in series with the igniter. I know the bake igniter needs to be above 3.2A.) Other possible causes of the problem are a selector switch problem or the glow bar. (These are things to check if the oven works.)

I hope this helps.

pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

Sounds similar to what mine is doing.
Since Dacor uses the gas broiler to preheat the oven, the problem is that the lower heating element isn't getting power.
I took out the element and verified that the element is still good, but no AC voltage coming from the relay board to the element.
Try setting on the Pure Convection mode - it will probably heat up and hold the temp fairly well - that still doesn't do any good if you need to bake something covered (convection modes are useless for covered container..

It could be the oven ignitor which is located under the heat displacement shield if you have a voltage meter or a multimeter do an ampere test should first shut the gas off next locate the oven ignitor or bake ignitor and you will see two wires that go to the ignitor clip around one of the wires should be reading 3-3.3 amps any less then this and the oven will not light even if it read 2.9 it would still be a weak ignitor and need to be replaced because it would not be lighting the gas when it was supposed to check your oven ignitor and message me back with your finds And please remember when our chat is concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again and Happy New Year

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

Maytag MGR5775QDW won't bake


Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!
