Dacor PGM365-1 gas cooktop - blue LED for one of the burners quit working. Can I replace just the LED or is it included as part of a larger assembly?

    Hmm, I have a similar problem where one of the blue LEDs works intermittently...appreciate any info - I will update if I find anything useful. Also, anyone know how to adjust the low-level burner levels?

    I see I'm not alone. First one and now 2 other of the knobs "burner on" blue LEDs have gone out. The simmer LEDs are still working ok as well as the last two knobs.

    Same problem.  I just bought an LED light kit for the Dacor range.  It cost $17.  Have not yet tried to install it.  The LED has two long leads with a plug on the end.

I replaced my led light with one from Radio Shack its a 5mm Blue led part number276-314 it was about $3.00. I connected it with solderless connectors for telephone wires also from Radio Shack. I covered the connections with heat shrink tubing. I fished out the light without taking the face of the stove off. I did all the work outside in the front of the stove. I checked it to make sure I had the polarity right. Then I fished it all back in and used rounded needle nose pliers to put the light back in. It all works like a charm. Im not sure if it will go out again. I did not fix whatever caused it to burn out in the first place but I thought it was worth the cost under $10.00 to try it out. I will post if it fails again.

    @makmodeler: Is your Dacor cooktop burner control LED light still working since you repaired it using Radio Shack parts? Mine just went out, I called Dacor, and they would not sell the LED replacement light. The repair technician will charge $109 for service call plus $12 for the LED light. I want to do it myself if your method works fine. Thanks. PC

I need to replace two blue indicator lights and I need directions


I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.

Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).

What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).

Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back.
Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.

Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)

Dacor PGM 304


ON DACOR AS WELL AS THERMADOR YOU HAVE TO TAKE ALL THE BURNER CAPS OFF AND INTHE CENTER OF EACH BURNER CELL YOU WILL SEE A RELEASE NUT THEIR ARE 3 TO 4 DIFFERENT TYPES BUT THE MOST COMMON REQUIRES 13/16 SOCKET OR A 3N1 PUTTY KNIFE TO UNSCREW THEM. BE VERY VERY CAREFUL IF THE NUTS DO NOT COME LOOSE FREELY DO NOT FORCE THEM!!! USE SOME LIQUID WRENCH AND LET IT SOAK FOR A WHILE THEN ATTEPMT AGAIN. OTHER WISE YOU WILL MANGLE YOUR GAS TUBE AND ORFICECES AND HAVE 7OR 8 PARTS TO ORDER INSTEAD OF ONE

Disassembly to replace LED burner indicator


I'm not an expert, but I just had mine apart. You should take the panel off from beneath the control panel. This is a matter of removing about 6-8 screws and slipping the small piece of sheet metal out. You may then be able to find your "missing" LED, which is probably dangling inside the control panel assembly area. I believe there is simply a tab or other simply fastening clip that you slip the LED back onto; this holds the LED against the control panel. Assuming the LED is still working and still wired to the knob, it should work fine.

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!
