Question about Dacor ECS230 Epicure Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven
I HAVE HAD THE THERMOSTAT REPLACED 2 TIMES IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS. MY PROBLEMS STARTED WITH THE TOP OVEN SHOWING AN F4 MESSAGE DURING PREHEAT FOLLOWED DIRECTLY BY THE BOTTOM OVEN SHOWING F4. BOTH OVENS STOPPED WORKING. I HAVE TRIED RESETTING THE BREAKER WITH NO SUCCESS. AT TIMES BOTH OVENS WOULD SHOW F4 WITHOUT EVEN BEING TURNED ON. AFTER THE SECOND THERMOSTAT REPLACEMENT THE OVENS WORKED FOR ABOUT THREE WEEKS. NOW RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS WHILE PREHEATING MY TOP OVEN ON PURE CONVECTION, I GET THE MESSAGE OF F4 ON THE BOTTOM OVEN DIRECTLY FOLLOWED BY THE TOP OVEN THEN IT SHUTS DOWN. I TRIED TO RESET THE BREAKER AGAIN WITH NO SUCCESS. I OPENED BOTH OVEN DOORS TO COOL THE OVEN TO RESET THEM AFTER ABOUT A HALF HOUR THE FAN FINALY SHUT OFF THEN I RECEIVED A MESSAGE OF F2? WHAT IS THAT NOW??? I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED AND MIFFED AT THE PROBLEMS.
Mewood What part did you call "thermostat"? If you?re talking about the device which operates the oven temperature, your oven does not have such thermostats. It has two oven temperature sensors (one in each oven) and a control board (ERC). An error code "F4" will be displayed along with a beeping sound if the ERC determines an open oven temperature sensor circuit. It can be the sensor itself or the wires that connect the sensor to the ERC. The F4 message will not be displayed in the time of day mode. To get access to an oven sensor and wires, the oven has to be removed from the cabinet. Then you have to remove the rear cover. Then unplug the oven sensor and check the resistance across the oven sensor. It?s supposed to be about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is incorrect, the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If not, check all the wires from the oven sensor to the ERC. If it is not the sensor and wires, you have to replace the ERC, but most likely the problem is with the wires and/or connections. Part number for ERC is 62965, part number for oven sensor is 62593. Gendos....post back.
