Question about Electrolux ICON 30 in. Double Wall Oven

2 Answers

Turning off oven.

My oven doesn't seem to cool down and turn off fast enought. Last night I baked a casserole for an hour, I hit cancel to turn it off.  The touch screen was dark, so it looked like it was off, yet for 2 hours... no exaggeration... 2 hours it blew hot air and the burners were still hot. It finally turnes itself off, but it always takes about 2-3 hours. I noticed the fan isn't on in the back when I turn it off... My question is, does the fan only come on when you are cooking with the convection features, or should it come on during oven cool down. It doesn't come on, so that may be my problem. I just don't know. I can't find my instructions. Am I doing something wrong?

"...but uses a bunch of air conditioning in the summer"

Well, it wouldn't actually use *less* air conditioning if it cooled down slower by itself. The total amount of heat released from the oven (and hence pumped out from the house by the air conditioning) would be the same, but over a longer time.

Re: Turning off oven.

The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer

Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.

When trying to thermal/radiant bake, convection fan at the rear does not stop turning after the preheat. Why doesn't this happen? Isn't it then convection baking?

Most wall ovens have a cooling fan that comes on when the oven has been on for some time. It is separate from the convection operation. It should shut off after the oven has been off for a time.

My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at
The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).

    Dacor Oven Won;t Heat

    power surges can short out the electonics in appliances. If you can locate where the tech sheet is and I would say its behind the control panel on top, look at the wiring diagram and see if there are any replaceable fuse's. Or a resetable fuse for the heating element. If not check to see if power is getting to the main control bord. If there is power there you may need to replace the control.
