Like others with a Dacor RSD 30, the high temp breaker is easily tripped if the oven door is left open or ajar. In my case I think it is caused because the spring tension on the hinge is not set strong enough to securely close the door. As a result the samll gap allows the heat to trip the sensor. Looking for a solution on how to increase the spring tension to solve this problem.

I found the answer on other posts on this website and it saved me $500! I had the same problem with my Dacor Model ECD2278 double oven. After I ran the self cleaning the top oven would not come on and the lower oven ran almost double the temp that was set. To fix: disconnect power to the oven at the circuit breaker. Open the oven door. You'll see the grille/grate/steel cover in front of the door latch mechanism, and it should have about 4 screws holding it in place. Remove the screws then remove the grille cover. On my model the tiny red reset button was on the right side on top of a black plastic round piece which is about 1" in diameter. Press the little button down til it clicks.
Called Dacor with same problem. They said the high temp switch needed to be reset but wouldn't tell me how to do it.
Looked at another site and found out how. On double oven remove grill that latch sticks out of. There should be 6 screws. On left side is a switch with a red button that faces inward. Press this button until it clicks. Test oven by turning on to see if this fixes problem. It did for me.
Rescrew grill back on being careful that the latch continues to line up with the door.
Hi!!!you seem to have a problem with your hi- limit switches show here they are resetable in dacor products..just press the top of the hi-limit swith and you will be fine'' they are show here.Good luck
I believe I followed the post by Rotu on11/11/06--remove the black grill surrounding the oven door latch (it's held on by 4 black phillips-head screws about 3" on either side of the latch). I had to use a flashlight to see into the space (there are a bunch of wires as I recall). In the middle several inches back you will see a small (about 3/8") red (mine had darkened) button. We used a screwdriver (be sure your circuit breaker is OFF) to reach it and push it down to reset. Replace the grill, turn on the breaker and you are good to go.
Sometimes those springs hang on a hook with "notches" so that you can increase the tension by moving to a higher notch. If they don't have any adjustment on them, and you just put a replacement spring on I'd start looking other places for the problem first. If you got the closest springs they had at the hardware store, then you can increase the tension by curling down (thus shortening) the hook ends of the spring with long nose pliers. On a strong spring like an oven spring this will be kind of difficult.
Make sure there isn't any rubbing or other problem going on with the hinges... sometimes just a couple drops of 3 in 1 oil will do the trick.
HI - I just had the same problem - repairman came and reset the breaker in the oven which "tripped" (even tho I havent used the lower oven in months). Read posts here on other Dacor ovens which explain how to get to the reset switch to avoid having $150 in repair costs - I have not tried that myself tho but good luck!
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 .
Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.
Here is the link to the forum: http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html
In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:
Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.
Press and hold these keys on sequence:
convection bake standard bake pure convection broil timer 2 (momentary push only) stop time clock
Finally, we arrive at the test we want: Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.
Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).
I also have a Dacor Model PCS130. This solution worked AND saved me from spending $50-$105 for a service technician to come out just to look at the problem.
The high temperature sensor tripped when I kept the door open part way while broiling (never listen to friends who don't have the same oven as yours). Afterwards, I couldn't get the oven to go above the prebake temperature of 135°F using any of the settings (bake, broil, convection bake, etc...).
I called Dacor customer service and they told me about the high temperature sensor but wouldn't say how to reset it. They suggested I call a third party technical service company and gave me their numbers. But, I'm glad I found this site...
All you have to do is open the oven door and you'll see the grille/grate/steel cover plate where the door latch sticks out of. If you look inside, you can see the electronics that operate the door latch as well as the temperature sensor unit a little farther back. You can even see the RED reset button. But, it's a little too far back for you to press it without removing the cover plate.
6 screws is what holds my cover plate in place. Once that's off, you can reach in and press the RED reset button (I pressed it twice just to make sure) and you'll hear it click. Screw the cover plate back in place. Close the oven door and test it out.
It took my oven about 5 minutes to heat up past 135°F so I was unsure if the problem was fixed or not during that time. But, once the oven heated up sufficiently, the temperature began climbing fairly quickly and I was able to breath a sigh of relief. It works!
This is such an easy fix, I don't know why Dacor customer support doesn't just tell us how to do it ourselves instead of paying for a service tech to come out and do the same thing. Even better, maybe they should make the reset button more easily accessible (like on the control panel) if they're concerned about people getting in and messing up the other electrical connections when trying to reset the high temperature switch. Computers are far more technically advanced than your oven and THEY have reset/reboot buttons right in front.
