Question about Dacor Preference RSD30 Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Trying to determine if the ERC or main relay is acting up

I found you here on FixYa and you seem very knowledgable and I was hoping you could help me out.
Our Dacor range acted up a month or so ago where the cooling blower came on all by itself - the oven hadn't been on all day. I reset the circuit breaker and it seemed to solve the problem.

Last week I was making a very large pot of turkey soup and in the process at least a quart or two of stock ended up cascading across the front of the range and provided a very brief waterfall over to the floor. A moment later I noticed the LED display was saying OFF, then OF, then blinking, then various temperatures were displayed, etc.

I shut off the breaker; cleaned up the mess, and turned the range back on: similar results, with a few random beeps added to the mix. After a day of 'resting' the range and hoping it might be 'wet' and would dry out - the following occurs consistently: turn on breaker and the time displays and blinks; the word OFF appears in the temperature area for a second, then 045 appears in the same area; then the same sequence starts again - and each time there is a change in the display a single or double beep is heard.

Do you think I need an new ERC or could the main relay board be the culprit? Is there any relatively easy way for me to check either of these components before having to order them? I've taken out the ERC - seems okay (in the sense that there isn't any charred area where my soup would have encountered it) but I didn't test each transistor for resistence.

I've never received any formal error codes on the display. Is there a way to 'reset' or get the ERC to display its status by holding down any control key combos? I've seen reference in FixYa to sequences for changing F to C degrees...

Thanks a million in advance - we're limping along right now with the ERC out of the range (which still gives us full access to the range top gas burners, but no stove control).

Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

What is F2 flashing on a ge self cleaning oven mean?


F2 During BAKE
Description:
Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F

Solutions:
If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

F2 During CLEAN
Description:
Control senses oven temperature above 915F-930F

Solutions:
If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

JMP28B ELECTRIC RANGE STOVE TOP WORKS/READ OUT AND OVEN DOES NOT.BREAKER HAS BEEN CHECKED


I just finished repairing mine so I thought I would share. Symptoms:
1. stove top burners function correctly
2. ERC (electronic oven control with the readout) functioning with no error code
3. Could set temperature of oven or broiler and turn on.
4. Could here the "click" of the relays but oven or broiler would not heat and temperature reading would stay at 100.

After consulting the owners manual it become quickly apparent this was useless. Spent a lot of time on the web trying to find a wiring diagram and finally located it undr the stove top. DUH!
After looking at the diagrams it seemed that the common connections to both the broiler and oven elements are:
1. Line 2 (L2 on the diagram) of the incoming 230 volt power.
2. Thermal switch supplying Line 1 (L1 on the diagram) to the ERC
3. The ERC and/ or relays on the ERC supplying power from L1 to the elements.

With a multimeter on the resistance function and power off, I checked the thermal switch and it was ok. There are 2 switches located close together and the one in question is the larger one and has a small red reset button on top. This button resets this switch if it activates due to a temperature over 300 degrees. The other switch turns a fan on and off and is not pertinent to this problem.

I then turned the power on and confirmed power at the L1 terminal of the ERC. I turned the oven on and waited for the "click" of the realy and checked for power at the BA terminal of the ERC. This BA terminal is the output to the oven heating element. It was dead. I repeated for the BR terminal (broiler element output) and it to was dead. To check for power one can use any red wire on a top burner switch for one lead of the meter with the other lead to the terminal in question. Be very careful if one posses no electrical experience as one could get electrocuted. If unsure find someone with experience to check with power on.

Seems the problem was in the ERC as there was power going in and nothing coming out to the elements. The clicking of the relays showed that they were functioning. I took the ERC apart and "rang out" the poer circuit for the elements and found that the power to the oven relay was interlocked through the broiler relay. This is probably to keep both elements from hating at the same time. I found a bad solder joint at the connection of the first (broiler) relay to L1. This explains why neither element would work. Afetr resoldering the connection I reassembled everything and tested. All is now functioning correctly.

Whirlpool gas range error code f2


Hi sauerteig_j,

Whirlpool F2 error code indicates that oven temperature is too high. And to fix this problem:

1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.

3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. Just have your model # ready when you call.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Oven element wont shut off. goes to extreme heat and stays on


This is usually caused by a stuck or melted relay on the main control. If you remove the ERC ( main control) you will likely find the relay that controls the oven is burnt or melted. The main control will need to be replaced. But before removing the ERC make sure the button for the oven control is not stuck down, that would indicate the key pad.On some ovens the keypad and main control are seperate parts. Here is a link that should help checking and replacing an oven control.

Thuis sounds like the relay on the main control board has fried. It is stuck in a closed positon(on). The relay cannot be replaced the whole board must be replaced. Here is a link that should help

Replacing oven ERC you can also enter your model# for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

Ge built in 1993 oven shows an F-1 sign and beeps


Hello there:
any time you recieve the f-1 and sometimes a f-o error with the beeping this is from the electronic range controle board or erc for short and this means that that part has fgailed and needs to be replaced if you go to repair clinic.com you can look up you oven model number and get parts from there or if you have a appliance repair center in your home town give them a call and tell them the ovens model number and tell them you need a erc or electronic range controle board ok?
Hope this helps

F-2 code


HI. this code can come up for two different reasons. it could during a bake session or a cleaning situation as well. I will list the details below.

During Baking(((f2)))

During a baking session, if the control senses an active oven temp above 615f-630f, this code will appear.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

During Cleaning(((f2)))

During a cleaning session, if the control senses an active oven temp above 915f-930f, this code will appear.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

Timer tone goes off with F1 display


Hi arl3933,

The "F1" error code description is a System Watchdog Circuit. Please press "CANCEL", if beeping continues after 30 seconds, please check the main control board(ERC). Here are basic test that will help you to determine if the ERC or touchpad is defective.

1. Unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker.

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the code comes back.

7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Hope it helps.

Hi....
The fuel Pump relay (main relay)
On your Honda Accord is located:
Left side of the dash, near left side of the steering column.
On direction under the Instrument cluster.
You will need to remove the Cruise control Module if your car is equipaded with cruise control.
The cruise control module is atached fro 2 screw 10mm.
One on the steering column the other one at the Instrument bracket.
After you remove the cruise computer, you will see the relay.
Is a little bigger that a regular relay colour gray.
And the number on the relay is : RZ0088.

I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya....
