I need to replace two blue indicator lights and I need directions
I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.
Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).
What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).
Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back.
Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.
Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)
