DCS RGS-486GD Gas Kitchen Range not heating up properly

Our DCS RGS-486GD Gas Kitchen Range does not heat up properly. Our oven has a top temperature of 500F. We can not seem to get it to go over 350F. Also, it takes about an hour to reach that temperature. Ideas?

the problem should be from the heating element of your electric oven. The heating element is weak, that why its not heating reliably.

Also, there might be some partial contact, that is, the wire connected to the heating element might have loose contact partially, due to past heat coming out from the oven.

You need to open/disassemble the oven, check the wires connected to the heating element and see if they are intact. If its intact, then you might have to replace the heating element, for the electric oven to work efficiently again.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Place explain in detail how to get the door back

Turn the range off and let it cool completely.

  • 2 Open the range door to the first stop where it rests open on its own.
  • 3 Place one hand on each side of the range door near the middle and pull the range door up and out to remove the door. Pull the door off at the same angle as it rests at the first stop. This will release the door completely from the slide-off hinges that mount to the door and the range frame.
  • 4 Place the range door on a solid surface. Remove the two Phillips screws on the left hinge that mounts to the door, turning each one counterclockwise with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws on the right door hinge in the same manner.
  • 5 Remove the left hinge on the range frame by turning each of the two Phillips screws counterclockwise. Remove the right hinge on the range frame in the same manner.
  • 6 Place the new hinge on the range frame on the left side and line the screw holes up with the holes in the frame. Screw the hinges on by turning the screws clockwise. Repeat for the right side of the range frame.
  • 7 Place the new hinges on the left and right side of the door and attach them with Phillips screws, turning them clockwise.
  • 8 Pick up the range door with one hand on each side and slide the door back into the hinges on the range frame to attach the two sides of the hinges together.
  • This is how you take it out ..and to put it back the procedure is reversed ...If the hinges are already attached on the door ..all you have to do is to get the right position (45 degrees ) to slide it back in ..

    My oven won't heat up and just smells like gas but my stove burners work

    Hello, This is going to be a problem with your igniter/glow bar. Over time these get old and although you may see it glowing iit still may be bad. Your igniter should glow a brillient yellow and should ignite the gas within 15 seconds of the valve opening. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again...Good Luck! Mike

    Gas burners are ticking

    The ticking sound you hear is the electronic ignition which is located by each burner. When you turn a burner on the electronic ignition creates a spark which ignites the gas. Once the burner is ignited. turn the knob a bit further and the ticking will stop.

    Actually Dave, when you turn on one burner, all of the igniters do fire. This is normal. Perhaps you never noticed it before. regards, Joe

    Oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

    Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.
