My Dacor range light bulb went out. Dacor charges upwards of $60 for a replacement bulb. Can anyone recommend a not so expensive bulb? I used an OSRAM light bulb before but it was rated not to exceed 500 degrees F. Can't use it for self-cleaning cycle. Suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have this problem and just called a parts store to find that a new bezel is $414.79! The screws were apparently loosening up slowly and by the time they were scratching the trim piece on the top of oven door (and I noticed it) the damage had been done. Has anyone been able to get Dacor to replace this part w/o charge? It isn't a case of misuse, but is a design flaw. Lindsey
You can try turning the breaker off to the unit for 10 minutes or so but if that does not work you will need a new control board to fix it. they usally range from 100-200 dollars.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
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.
To replace the light bulb:
1. Remove the right filter and turn off the main power
2. Gently push the suction cup on the light replacement
tool A (provided with you range hood)
onto the lens of the light bulb B .
3. Turn the tool counter-clockwise until the bulb
4. Remove the tool from the bulb and put it on the
lens of the replacement bulb.
5. Screw the new bulb into the light fixture clockwise
until it is tight. Turn on power at the fuse or junction
box. Turn on the main power switch and touch
the light key to make sure it is working.
6. Replace the filter. You can download the manual here.
I went to the appliance store where I purchased the oven, and they called a Dacor representative. A flat end tool was given to me to pop out the plastic covers. There are no screws to fasten the covers, so you have to use this tool - which was not put in my kit at the time. Be careful when doing this, because the plastic cover can break. You replace the bulbs by pulling out and pushing in the socket. There is no turning the bulb. Handle the bulb with a paper towel, because the oil from your hands will take life from the bulb. Very important that the oven's breaker is off before this is done. Luckily, I had a very kind clerk helping me, and she even gave me the bulbs free of charge.
I like your website, and I will use it again in the future.
