Question about Dacor MCS130 Millennia Electric Single Oven

Exterior surface of oven gets hot when turned off

The exterior surface of our MCS130S wall oven gets very hot when we turn the oven off. There is a fan that runs for a brief period when we turn the oven off, and while the fan is running the exterior surface remains cool. Once the fan stops though the outside of the oven door and the control panel get very hot. Is there a setting that may need adjustment to keep the fan running longer?

Re: Exterior surface of oven gets hot when turned off

What do you mean by very hot? Is it too hot to touch? Hot enough to sizzle when a drop of water is put on it?

Eob5630w oven shutting down before set temp isreaced aprox 198c also cooling fan not comingon

The reason the oven is shutting down is because it is overheating due to the cooling fan not working, and a safety thermostat is turning the oven off.
You need to repair or replace the exterior cooling fan.

The electric power to my house was temporarily interrupted, and since it was restored my Modern Maid wall oven has not worked. The timer and griller work, but the wall oven does not. Does the oven need to...

The timer is 110 volt, and the grill may also be . The oven, however, is 220 volt. Suggest you check your main circuit breaker box and reset the breaker set marked "oven" or something similar. This would be the exterior breaker box where power comes into the home.

I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't

Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

I have a gas oven whirlpool sf3020ekq2 buners work but oven won't

Sounding like your hot surface ignitor is getting bad. What I would like for you to do is open the oven and take the bottom panel off. This is so you can see the hot surface ignitor. Turn the oven on and look at the hot surface ignitor it is down on the bottom right next to the burner assembly. Does it start to glow and turn cherry red? This ignitor isn't too hard to replace couple of small screws and two wires. Will have to cut the wires so disconnect the unit from the 120 volt plug. Now if it starts to glow and get cherry red hot then the gas valve is sticking and it is the one going bad. That is a little tougher to replace. Turn the gas off at the source and get your wrenches unscrew the gas valve small space so if you want remove the door by just pulling it off the hinges.

If unit is old and you don't like it anyway maybe santa would be good to you and replace the stove oven. The gas valve is about 60 bucks or so and hot surface is about 20 bucks. let me know how it turns out.. ken

Pilot Light Wont Light

Take off the top cover plate inside the oven. Now with the door open turn the oven on does the hot surface glow? If it doesn't glow then you have a bad igniter and needs to be replaced. What ever you do don't touch the surface of the new igniter human oil will shorten the life of the igniter. now if the hot surface glows then the gas valve is bad and need to be replaced. I'm betting it's the hot surface.
