The hi limit thermostat probably tripped during self clean. It can be manually reset. Turn off the power and remove the grill under the control panel. There is a two wire switch behind the door latch press in the red button on the switch. Reassemble and turn on the power. If it works you can reset the cooling fan to run longer which could cure your problem. Press and release upper broil button, press and release the up arrow, then hold down the broil button until it reads COOL 000. Press the up arrow until it reads COOL 200. Press cancel. Done.

Dacor range (oven)does not work

I have had the same problem for ten years. After a few years of the tech coming out everytime
I self cleaned, I had him show me how to reset, and he also gave me a new reset gizmo in
case that doesn't work. As for resetting, the top plate on top needs to come off and then you'll
see the gizmo with a dark red reset button that is attatched to the floor of that top compartment, which I leave unattatched for easier access. Push button down, of course turn off the electrical power to oven before doing all this. Works everytime.

I don't know how to clean the oven

You should have a function switch that says " self clean ". Normally, all you have to do is turn the control on to "self clean" and let the oven do the rest. It will take about 3 hours or so to complete the cycle.

Dacor ECS230 Epicure Electric Double Oven

You probably tripped a safety thermostat in the back of each oven. If you turn off the breaker and find a way to pull the units out you could probably remove the rear panel and reset the thermostat by pushing in a button on the back of the open thermo. Some thermo's aren't resettable though so you'd have to buy a replacement.

like another person stated-from the front behind the door, take off the 6 screws and the cover by the latch. there is an "oven hi temp limit switch" It is crome with 2 heavy black wires connected to it. On the back side of this is a small red button which will reset the limit switch. I had the same issue (everything worked except the any of the heating elements) and quickly resolved.
