Question about Dacor Epicure ERD30 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

How hard is it to replace an oven temp sensor? Is it worth trying to do it ourselves or should we call in a repair tech?

    Thanks for the info. Our oven is not under warranty. It was installed in 11/04. I think we may have had a lemon from the beginning as we had multiple gas leaks that took repeat repairs to fix. I was using the broiler (which may have been the 1st time I ever used the broiler)about a month ago and after about 40 min it stopped heating altogether. We found the reset button which helped and it started heating again but now it doesn't keep the temp. I found the temp sensor on line to purchase but am debating whether to call repair tech out or try it ourselves. Question: What is a resistance tester? Is it something we need to purchase? Thanks for any additional assistance you can offer!

    The temp sensors usually plug right in. Your model's sensor should be
    on the right side panel,midway between the rack guides. Trouble shooting is different than diagnosing.
    Temperature regulation might be unrelated to the sensor. Your oven has
    the ability to adjust temp settings If
    you
    have a resistance tester, check the sensor unit first. Do not cover the
    bottom of the oven with foil or inserts to keep it clean. If your oven
    is still under warranty, don't work on your oven unless you make sure
    that you will not void the warranty. Give me more
    history by leaving comments and I might be able to give you answers
    that are more precise.

This is usually a very simple repair that anyone can do without the assistance of a repairman. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r393313-checking_replacing_oven_probe

These instructions will work for nearly all gas and electric free standing ranges. If this is a drop in range, it becomes more difficult as you will have to uninstall the range in order to access the rear panel.

Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. Make sure you follow all safety advice. I hope this helps you.

    A resistance tester is a simple multimeter that you can purchase at any hardware store. Many are not very expensive at all. If you've never used a multimeter before, refer to the owner's manual that will come with it to learn all the features.



    Resistance is the opposition to current flow and will be the "R"scale readings on the selector dial. They are measured in units called "ohms". The measurements of the oven sensor I have listed in the link I provided for you. An oven probe measured on the Rx1000 scale, should read approximately 1100 ohms if good. This reading vary, however, depending on its temperature.



    This is a very simple repair, that you can easily perform yourself. A repairman will charge the additional cost of labor which can run over $100 in some cases.

The top latch on the door that activates the microwave broke off. Can we replace this ourselves, or do we need to call a technician to come dismantle the door & replace the latch?


Nancy,
Can you see the inside portion of the latch? If so, you might try getting some quick set plastic epoxy. This will require some patients and a steady hand. Mix epoxy, apply to both ends, reattach and hold for a long time! Min 5 min's. Understand, if you cant do this with out getting epoxy on the surrounding parts of the door you shouldn't attempt this. You will end up gluing the latch in place- still wont work. Otherwise call a tech. But unless it is a built in over the stove microwave, it may be cheaper to get a new one than call for service! My charge to come do such a repair would be about $100 plus part. Is it worth it?

I have a whirlpool gas range sf357pekq the fault code is F2E1 key-tail. ??? when I try to light oven it will click 3 or 4 times gas then will come on and go out same with the broiler . Will this be an easy...


Hi

F2-E1 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Im trying to set my oven on bake its beeping and reads f4 on the screen??


F4 usually relates to a temperature sensor fault. Meaure the temp sensor at ambient temp and it should measure approx. 1K . If it doesn't, then replace. However, and a big however, I've seen frequent faults such as these where the control board is at fault. The proper procedure is to verify the sensor though first before replacing control board.

I have a KitchenAid double oven with convection on the top and conventional on the bottom (model #KEBC207KBL0). When I set the temperature and preheat the top oven, the display shows the temperature rising...


it will either be the sensor or the board,hopefully it's not the board,the part number for the sensor is 4455636 and subs to w10131825,the sensor is around 100 bucks,there should be a tech sheet on the machine most likely behind the touch pad on the top,it will tell you how to check the sensor with a meter,just unplug the sensor and read it out i think it's around 1100 ohms but check that on the tech sheet,if it's not the sensor most likely it will be the board part number 4453661 and that's around 300 buckseverything runs through this computer board but the sensor tells it how hot it is in the oven hopefully you have a bad sensor.let me know what you find,you'll most likely have to pull the oven to repair it but maybe just enough to get the top open,good luck

I have a double oven top one stopped heating up sooo i just switched the elements from the bottom to the top as to order the parts but that isnt the problem the top still won heat up


This could be a faulty circuit or sensor that will need to be replaced before the oven safety feature will disengage. If the Temp sensor is not registering as working or the load sensor it will not allow the element to heat up. This is a safety feature. You will need a repair tech to diagnose this and do the repair.
