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

    I wanted to update you regarding the solution:

    after checking proper ac voltage into the control module (20VAC), I removed it and checked the keypad, using data from dacor site. found out that some key did not work (bake, broil etc.) checked that by shorting the relevant inputs on the control module bake started, so instead of waiting for a new keypad, connected wirse to the relevant inputs, routed it outside the oven, to a small group of switches, and assembled the range again. now i can bake until the new keypad will arrive

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.

Display panel dim

The display on my cooker started to dim until it finally went dark over a few weeks. Although a different make, I replaced the panel and everything is now fine. I was amazed how bright the new display was so it must have been dimming over a long period.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

An indicator light doesn't work correctly
The oven is hot on the outside
I see sparks!
The drip pans need replacing

hope this may help;

Adjusting clock brightness on electric range.

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.

How do i replace burned out lightbulb in my in my cambridge soundworks cd - 740 clock radio ?

I believe the problem is either a faulty light sensor the unit has to dim the display when the lights dim since it was designed for bedroom use with alrms and snooze button. or it is simply a failure in the circuit that drives the LCDs. Mine has been dim for a long time but I can still see just enough to adjust the sound settings. I tune and set stations by sound. so the display has not been an issue since we do not use it for a clock or alarm. I doubt there is a fix for the dim display.

Oven door won't open

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:

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
timer 2 (momentary push only)
stop time

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).

I hope this helps.
