Question about Dacor Preference PGR30SS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

REALLY long to preheat ...

I recently bought a used Dacor PGR30SS (gas and convection) from a homeowner. The person I bought it from had just moved into a new house and didn't like the oven b/c she said it took a really long time to preheat.

She wasn't kidding. Started it up last night at 7:49pm, set it for 400 degrees. At 8pm the internal temperature hadn't risen above 135. Finally at 8:30 on the dot the oven beeped to let me know it had reached 400 degrees.

I realize I should first do a temp check to make sure the internal thermometer is actually not the issue, and plan to try to do that tonight. But any other suggestions?

I have a dual fuel Dacor ERD30 range that will not stay hot. Lately, it will heat up to the desired temperature and beep to indicate it is ready, but then will not hold the temperature. And strangely, if...


Sounds similar to what mine is doing.
Since Dacor uses the gas broiler to preheat the oven, the problem is that the lower heating element isn't getting power.
I took out the element and verified that the element is still good, but no AC voltage coming from the relay board to the element.
Try setting on the Pure Convection mode - it will probably heat up and hold the temp fairly well - that still doesn't do any good if you need to bake something covered (convection modes are useless for covered container..

Hot surface Ignitor is bad most likely. Normal wear and tear. You can check it by looking at it, it should be black. If it's white, it's no good.

Is the hot surface ignitor supposed to stay on all the time on my PGR30SS? My oven takes a long time to heat up.


( yes) most ovens that use hot surface system stay on during heating . if its weak is orange glow instead of white hot . this would cause slow heat up / hope this helped ****
