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.

even though the ignitor seems to glow bright orange,it still maybe weak,as in not enough current to open the gas valve,an easy test is to just swap out or interchange the broiler ignitor and bake ignitors and see if this takes care of your issue on the lower bake side as most units use the identical ignitor for each upper and lower manifolds and the gas valve supplies both the bake and broiler manifolds depending on which you choose to use bake or broil

Oven will not light ,broiler and top of range light fine


the ignitor is not working its bad,you should see a bright orange glow below the oven base just as when you start the broiler look up at the top of the oven and watch this ignitor glow before ignition,the bottom should do the same,you can also see this from the back side of the range at the base,if you don't use the broiler you can use that ignitor for the oven ignitor as these ignitors are identical,but then you will have no broiler

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.

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.

the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor

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

If you use a multimeter, you can test the gas valve where the white and yellow wires connect is where your terminals for bake on that valve are. If you have continuity there, then check to make sure that igniter is wired ok.

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!
