Dacor model W305 blew an element. Replaced it. Won't work.
We have a Dacor wall oven model W305. The baking element blew. We order a new one and replace it. The oven still won't work. The oven will turn on (you hear it click), but the fan doesn't turn on and it doesn't heat. Please help! Our Christmas turkey is depending on it!

Re: Dacor model W305 blew an element. Replaced it. Won't...
The fan and element rely on a supply from the thermostat, so perhaps when the element blew, it damaged the thermostat, another possibility is that there is a fuse of some sort in the oven that has blown as a result of the element blowing.
It is highly unlikely that the fan and element are faulty, you will have to look further.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks, and merry xmas.

it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area
Bake and convection bake settings both use the bottom bake element to heat. It would be unusual for bake to work without conv. bake working. You also have pure convection which uses a different element surrounding the conv. fan on the back of the unit. If you press a feature and nothing happens it's the touch pad. If it comes on then turns back off it's probably the ERC (clock). If it comes on and wont heat only in pure conv. possibly an upper relay board or element problem.
I'm sure what you are asking. If you need an element, you can order it by your model number, which you have provided. We supply parts and you are welcome to call us at 9728590929 and we will be happy to assist you with your parts orders. We hope this helps!

I ORDERED A NEW BAKE ELEMENT TO TRY-NOT HERE YET
The only solution I know of for the enamel coming off on these units is replacement of the unit, and since it is 4 years old you are going to have a tough time getting dacor to replace it or even give you a credit towards a new one. I have never actually seen the problem on a Dacor. Does the unit have a hidden lower bake element? If you cannot seee the elemnt its hidden, and you cannot put tin foil on the floor of any unit wiht a hidden bake element, as it will damage the finish. I know this isnt much help, but I work on Dacor products regularly as we are an authorized servicer, and I can't say I've ever seen a finish problem on one. Best bet at this point is to call Dacor and see if they will do anything about it. Good Luck!
