Dacor ERDS30 clock and display OK, all bake buttons non responsiv
after power failure (am nut sure about the reason) the display was dim and erratic, with some flickering error codes. I turned off the breaker for the night. now the clock is ok, display ok. timer etc. work, light switch works
but all baking and broiling buttons have no response at all - no beep, no heating.
is there a way to do some reset or self test?
btw - a possible reason might be cleaning lady washing the panel with water

Re: Dacor ERDS30 clock and display OK, all bake buttons...
Most likely the interuption of power is what caused the problem. try shutting down the circuit breaker that controls the range for 30 minutes then turn it back on if this does not reset the electronics. You may need to replace the keypanel and /or electronic control as either or both may have been damaged by the power surge.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Very few ranges have any type of display dimming. Dacor is the only one I know of. If the display is very dim and hard to read, you will need to replace the clock or Electronic Oven Control. If the range is still under warranty, call Whirlpool and request service.
Hi - I understand that the burners work, however I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another question, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed?The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. Then a beep will sound and LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed, confirm that there isn't a wiring failure or a faulty element.
oven doesn't come in broil but the broil should . the bake should in bake . but if it does work in self clean then your oven is ok and its the clock ( erc) that has failed . some times there is a code in the display stating the problem. but ist loks like a clock failure . **** ..
If you call Dacor they will talk you through the solution but you have to have another person ready to turn the breaker off while someone is pushing a button. I have contacted them and am trying to get the instructions emailed.

oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
Replacing capacitor C3 on the clock board will correct the dimming problem. I will cost you about $2 for the part. Replacing the board does the same thing just with a higher price tag. Unfortunately, tt sounds like you may have a bad "new" board if this problem happened as soon as you put it in.
When I had the dim display problem with mine, the oven still heated up, chimed at temp, etc -- you just couldn't see the numbers. My wife didn't like it, so I fixed it. If your old board works like mine did even though the display is dark, you could try replacing the noted capacitor and see what happens.
MAYTAG Type "C" and "D" Clocks Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes
Supervisory relay enable shorted (non-cook mode); sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode if alarm fault monitor is always active in non-cook mode, and requires removal of power until serviced.
Usually a bad touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC). Replace touchpad or ERC
Bake/broil/clean temp runaway alarm; sounds alarm and resets control to non-cook mode when bake/broil/clean temp exceeds programmed limits.
Usually means a stuck relay. Electric @ 525F (bake), 640F(broil), 900F(clean)
Gas @ 525F (bake), 640F(broil), 900F(clean)
Open temp oven temperature sensor; sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode
Replace oven temperature sensor
Shorted temp oven temperature sensor; sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode
Replace oven temperature sensor
Supervisory relay enable open (cook mode); sounds alarm and resets the control to non-cook mode
Replace electronic range control (ERC)
Missing a/c line cycle detector; displays code (no audible)
Unplug appliance for two minutes, should clear problem
Function key shorted; too hot at the clock assembly (also called the ERC) or shorted touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC)
Replace touchpad or ERC
Analog/Digital supervisory; sounds alarm to non-cook mode
Door latch supervisory (door latched)
Unlock door and check switches or clock assembly (also called the ERC)
Cancel key supervision
Requires the removal of power until serviced. See qualified technician
On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher. Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds. The temp display is replaced by 00. Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments. When finished push cancel (or just do nothing). Good luck. I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire. It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too. May be something else wrong with my oven though?
Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.
Here is the link to the forum: http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html
In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:
Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.
Press and hold these keys on sequence:
convection bake standard bake pure convection broil timer 2 (momentary push only) stop time clock
Finally, we arrive at the test we want: Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.
Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).
