    there is power coming to the range, the stove itself works, and when i open the range door, the light comes on, so there is power coming to it. I tried switching the switch on th electric panel but that didn't do anything. Ive yet to check the back panel, (im housesitting so a little hesitant to do anything large like moving the range)
    any other ideas or is looking on the back my best bet?

Do you have any other indication that there is any power to the range?
If not check the circuit breakere or fuse in you electric panel.
If there is some indicatioan that you have power coming to the range, then check for a fuse in the range by taking off a back panel and doing a visual inspection.
If no fuse is blown, there may be another visual problem you may see while looking for a fuse.
Otherwise let me know what you see.

Tried to change the oven light bulb and when I took it out it said poof and now the whole range is dead. Electricity is going to the unit, but nothing works... not even the clock. Is it gone or maybe...


The first thing I would check, considering you've confirmed there's power at the outlet the oven is plugged into, unplug it. Next, remove the metal panel that is behind the "head," (behind the clock and the controls.) Look for a blown fuse on the circuit board in there. Chances are, that may be all that is wrong. At least it's a cheap fix, and your local Radio Shack should have a replacement fuse for you.

I hope this helps! :)

Convection oven not working properly???


your correct the only difference between a regular oven and a convection oven is that it has a fan.when you open the oven door the fan should be spinning to a stop if this is not the case you may have a problem with the fan.

I'm wondering if my Jenn-Air Model JER8885QCS needs a new probe or not. It's a...


As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too hot or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity, disconnect the wires and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful..

For some reason my cooker keeps switching itself off, unless the timer is set to 12:01 it does this. It used to go off when the timer counted down to 8 mins, but this varies, and now it has a mind of its...


It sounds like you are setting a cooking time instead of setting the time of day. The oven wont work until a time of day is set. press the centre button (4x)until a red light flashes in the bottom right corner of the clock if you miss it keep pressing until you cycle through to the rh corner(note clock symbal) press + or - until you get to the right time leave for 12 secs then time locks in and your oven will work. the other flashing lites top left= cooking time bottom left =end time top right =timer function with no oven control. If this does not solve it the timer is faulty and requires replacing. good luck.

After baking and trying to set time bake a week ago, the range won't turn on at all. Nothing happens when we press bake, broil, convect bake, etc. The clock, lights, fan, timer and cook top still work.


the oven controller in the main service/selection panel has either a bad solder joint on the circuits or the start realy for the oven on the same circuit board is bad and you have to replace the whole panel you cannot just buy the relay

Cooktop Locked Up!!


Got the same problem.
Here's a work around: Turn breaker off, second person needs to hold the CANCLE/LOCK button (keep holding it!)
Turn breaker back on and keep holding the button, lock feature may turn on, red lock light stays on, KEEP HOLDING THE BUTTON. At the end you will get a F11 (shorted keypad) warning. It may take up to 20 seconds or more but in my case the red lock light goes off, the dashes disappear and everything is back to normal.
Now here are the bad news. This does not fix the problem (I think it's the EOC). Every time the power goes off the red lock light and dashes will come back. It also may require to people to fix this/work around... but, hey, it doesn't cost anything either...

Oven and broiler: no heat


Flipped the breaker switch! Although we had looked at the breaker first thing, and it was not flipped off, plus everything else on the range was working: we found out it is actually a double breaker, with one half controlling just the oven, and it can be just partially flipped and you don't notice it. So as soon as you toggle it off and on again, you are back in full power.

Oven door won't open


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 hope this helps.
