    Thanks for the suggestion. I took a look around and don't see any irregularities. Was hoping there was a reset button or something..oh well.. I plan to call decor tomorrow to see if there's anything else. Frustrating b/c it's only 6months new. Will write again if it's a quick fix or not.

Okay, I'm not a service tech, but I fixed this very same problem with my double Dacor oven. My wife self cleaned the bottom oven and after that when we tried to use it, the oven would only stay at the pre-heat (135F) level. My oven is electric, so I flipped the breaker switch at the breaker box in the garage that powers the oven...I didn't want to get electricuted. I opened up the oven door to the bottom oven. Where the latch sticks out there is a grill held on by 4 screws. I took the grill off and using a flash light I found the silver looking "thingy" that is mounted behind the oven latch mechanism. There are two black wires coming from this "thingy." On the right face of the thingy there was this little red button. I pushed it in till I heard in snap back into place. I believe this silver thingy is some sort of heating safety switch. Pushing the red button back in apparently resets the switch. I put everything back and turned the power back on to the oven and it has been working just fine ever since. I hope this layman fix can help the next guy.

Same thing happened to my Dacor Oven ERD30 -it quit after self cleaning - I opened the oven door and saw an angled cover just under the controls - it looks kind of like a metal grill held on with 8 screws - turned the circuit breaker off and took 8 screws off - then the cover came off and exposed the locking mechanism in the centre and two black squares on the right ( 1 inch square) with small red center bottons. I pushed the red center buttons with my screwdriver as they were fairly stiff ,and they kind of clicked - I think this was a reset for excess temperature and was triggered by the self clean - this fixed the problem. Hope this helps.

Apparently those little red switch buttons trip with the extreme heat of selfcleaning. Mine did also and I fixed it with the help of you guys above. On my oven, it was 6 screws to remove a cover and presto! Thank you.

I would guess you probably have a element out. These stoves are suppose to be self cleaning but I can't tell you how many times I go to repair a stove and it's usually after self cleaning. I'm not in favor of self cleaning becuase it gets SO hot for SO long it really stresses out everything in the stove. If your element is exposed, look for cracks or any iregularity. If you can't see it, it will be under the bottom pan and that usually comes off with 2 screws in the back. Elements can be found about anywhere. Here is one spot.

Oven Pre-heats too high


Your oven sensor has gone bad and telling the control board/thermostat to keep heating. Find the model number on the range and go to a parts distributor like repairclinic.com or apdepot.com and order you sensor. This is an easy repair.

I'm in the middle of cooking dinner and I got a f3 e2 error and the oven locked...how do I get my dinner out? My husband is an elevator mechanic so he's handy...we turned off the breaker to quit...


That code refers to the oven temperature sensor sensing a too hot oven. I suspect what you did to quite the cleaning cycle should help once the temperature cools down the door should open. I am a little confused, did you set the oven to clean while your cooking, or did it do this on its own, or was it preset and yopu forgot it was set to clean? Your temp sensor may be going bad if it just detected a too hot oven while your cooking. If it started cleaning then it may have gotten too hot and this is the safety device to prevent it from overheating. it sounds like it is trying to self clean, its essential that you find the error code sheet, stuck in the stove or oven cabinet somewhere, also check your range settings so that it is not set to auto clean.

Once you replace the oven control again....never use self clean on any oven....unless you want to replace parts.
Before you replace the control...look inside the control panel for a resettable thermal fuse.

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.
