Dacor Gas wall oven

I have a Dacor gas wall oven . The door does not seal good and the door stop arm keeps coming off of the roller and then the door will just fall when opening. Can anyone help me with this problem?

    seems the door closes fine. just wont close that final 1/2 -1'. If I use the self cleaning lock it will pull it shut.

    Hinges do not appear damaged but the right side (looking at the front} appears lose where the rivet connects the two hinge parts.

    Also the stop arm wants to slip off the grooved roller and then the door will fall when opening.

    Could the hinges be bent just enough that not noticable?

    Have had the door off and oven pulled from wall. I am mechanically inclined and just can,t seem to figure out what the heck is causing this.I have tried to tighten the rivet on hinge but that still did,nt help. Does not look as if there is any adjustments available on hinge or spring arm. Don,t know what else to do.

Is there tension on the door at the point where it doesnt seal,is the spring broken/missing,when the door opens and closes is there enough travel from point a to point b inside the cabinet on both sides of the hinge area, is the sping loaded mechanism damaged .

    ive seen in the past were people put heavy objects on the door such as a turkey to baste and that can also have an effect on the door not closing if there is any loose parts that could be the cause of the gap where the door isnt closing you say the rivet is loose can that account for the 1/2 -1 inch space we are talking about there is suppose to be tension from a spring of some what thats what causes the door to close,look at where the roller rides on the arm/door hinge is there wear and tear on either roller or hinge.if not the next step wold be to remove the door only if you are confident and you do sound mechanically incline this can be done on some models open door about 4-5 inches it should stay open on its own and lift up door shuld come off the hinges.

Wall oven removal and installation

Turn off the gas. Look in the front of the oven for mounting screws. Open the door and look inside the frame for mounting screws. Remove the mounting screws,slide the oven out carefully,it will be heavy. Unplug the cord.Disconnect the gas line. Set the oven aside in one piece.

There is a manual reset button behind the vent under the touch pad. Turn off the power. Open the door. Remove the vent. Behind the latch is a two wire switch. press the red button on it until it clicks. reassemble and turn on power. It over heated when the power went off by stopping the cooling fan.

Dacor ECPS130 fan won't shut off

Hi, Dacor has a Technical Manual that may help you with your problem. It has a ECS wall mount oven but does not list a ECPS. Is your listing of the model correct? Here is a link to download the Technical Manual.
Hope it helps.

PCS 130 Keypad

Dacor probably won't cover anything. F1 is either the touch pad or ERC (clock). If it stops beeping when the touch pad is uplugged from the ERC then the touch pad is the problem if not it is the ERC. Call Dacor Customer service to get a price on the parts and to voice your displeasure.
