Question about Dacor Preference RSD30 Gas Kitchen Range
The "lights went out" on our RSD30 front panel. We called the Dacor parts supplier and they said we needed a new oven control. We just got it (part no. 62692 -- has the display unit attached) and I started to install it but found that it is not obvious how to get inside to remove the old one and replace it with the new unit. It looks like I need to remove the top of the stove, but rather than undo the wrong screws (nuts) by trial and error I would like to get some advise. What (and where located) should I remove to reach the oven control unit. Once I get into the stove, the actual replacement of the old unit looks pretty straight forward. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is one of the hardest stoves to get into. Turn off the breaker.
Pull off the burner knobs. This should reveal four large plastic nuts holding the console in place. You can turn them gently with channel locks straight on - not from the side. After you've got the console loose, everything else is downhill. There's lots of screws behind console, and across the bottom of the console (just above the door.) Remove just the ones you need, or face the wrath of Dacor!
Be careful about the rubber strip across the top of the console. It often stretches during a repair. You might have to cut off 1/4 to 1/2 in to get it to fit again.
The large plastic nuts are very east to get cross threaded when replacing them. I recommend turning them counterclockwise until you can feel the threads line up.
