Hello. If the SSR is closed, and the oven is off, then the SSR is bad. You can call turbo chef for a part supplier,if you are able to replace it yourself, at 1800 90turbo.

Dacor bottom oven not heating


I have a DACOR double electric oven model ECD230SCH. the top oven lower element went out 1 and 1/2 years ago, but the top element broiler works. Yesterday the bottom oven did the same thing- bottom element not working along with convection. Pulled off doors and cut breaker. Checked thermal switch on top off oven- closed good. Pull out element and Ohm'ed out- good. Now pulled over and out oven top panel to get to the control boards. Found a nice set of schematics for the over control boards and electronics. Sat down and pin-pointed both relays that supply power to upper and lower oven "lower" heating elements. these are on 2 different boards- upper over relays on bigger board on the left with the transformer. Lower oven on the right smaller board. Hardest pain in the rear was just getting the little plastic stand offs to push back through the board to get it off. Finally got it off and inspected board. Low and behold the relay I pin-pointed had a burn/open connection on the solder joint. Re-soldered tested oven and lower oven lower heat element works now! Went to the next board and got that off and same exact problem on the rely for the top oven lower element. Re-solder and test- good!! Put everything together and ran over to 350 on top and lower and back to normal. Wife very happy she did not have to pay a repair man big bucks to swap out the control boards- would have had to replace both.

I have a degree in electronic technology so as a technician for many years did low and high voltage component level repairs. But pretty easy and you can visually see the open solder joint on the back of the board at the relay leg.

High limit switch keeps triping on tornado oven and ir temp doesnt move ir elemnt was repaced as well the i/o board


the K4/K5 relay tells the convection circuit AND the IR circuit to allow voltage to the elements.. if it is bad you will not get 1 or other or even both.. if you have convection heat and you are positive that the ir element and I/O board are good then swap the b1/b2 terminals with the a1/a2 terminals on that relay and retest.. if the IR now works then order the new K4/K5 relay. it is a common issue with them. the relay is behind the blower motor on the right side.. 3 screws to remove the blower and that relay is right behind it. it is the only relay with a single orange wire and the other 3 are blue.

The heating element in the lower part of the oven burned. I was almost like a welding rod, it kept burning even when we had the oven off. I turned the power off at the fuse box before it finally stopped....


This sounds more like the electric control dial thermostat, keeping power on at the element, both element and control dial will need replacing

My oven is on warming mode from last six hours. Please adivse


First, check the back of the oven. See if the lil red button can be pressed in. Then check the IR Element, usually you can see the wires burned or damaged where it enters the oven by the snap rings. This was a design flaw from the manufacturer of the element of which turbochef has taken care of.

COMPONENTS
IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control
board.

Its typically an easy quick fix.

Not heating up right


Hi,when Element does not heat up correctly

1. Test for power to determine that the unit is receiving the correct voltages.
2. If the power voltages are correct and you have standard surface burner elements:
1. Test Surface Burner.
2. Test the Receptacle.
3. Test the Burner Switch.
3. If the power voltages are correct and you have solid-disc elements:
1. Test the solid-disc element.
2. Test the Burner Switch.
4. If the power voltages are correct and you have radiant heating elements:
1. Test the radiant heating element.
2. Test the Burner Switch.


1. Make sure the controls are set properly that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Where applicable, make sure the oven timer is set to manual.

2. Make sure the oven door is slightly ajar as per your owner's manual.

3. If nothing else on the Range, Oven or Cooktop is working then:
1. Check the circuit breaker or fuse
2. Test for power

4. Test the broiler element.

5. Check the oven thermostat.

6. Check selector switch.

7. Check oven cycling relay.


REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION .

Please if no experience, please contact a skillful personnel for assistance.

Thanks for using fixya..and please don't forget to rate me 100%.

Thanks.

Turbo chef is not heating up, coming up on it reads, f8 low heat


the problem with f8 like you have said LOW HEAT
, IF the oven does not warm up in time , which is usually 8 min , it goes into f8 fault code
now please check the hi limit button , on the back of the oven , left hand side, bottom corner, if it reset and starts heating, please check bottom element and temp reading IR , IF it rises very quickly and the elemnt is glowing red , please switch off the unit at the power point , you have problem with the solid state relay, if the temp is slowly rising , then you might only have an issue with the hi limit reset button thermostat, FIRST JUST CHECK THE RESET BUTTON

RATIONAL COMBI OVEN ELEMENT GLOWING RED -IS THIS NORMAL?


your oven is electric yeah? the hot air element shouldnt be glowing like that, it glows with the door open? the oven has a over temp stat so if the oven got too hot then it would trip out, if it does then the solid state relays will have to be changed, but if it carries on as normal then shouldnt worry

Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.

I hope this helps you.
