Question about DCS RDS-486GD Stainless Steel Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Large oven is not heating properly.

Ever since my husband made pizza's the other night and has the oven temperature very high, the oven is not working right. Now it takes an hour to get to 350 degrees and the heating light just stays on. We don't hear it cycling either. I have read on other fix it pages that maybe there is a switch that has to be reset. I have read after self cleaning this can sometimes happen. We have also shut off the breaker in hopes that it would help but it didn't do anything. Anyone know why this is happening?

Had same issue - replaced the ceramic ignitors and most of my problem was solved. Apparently ignitors require replacement every 3-5 years. When they start to go it takes forever for your oven to heat up ... they don't glow properly causes the gas valve stays partially closed - ie hence less flame/heat. It may also significantly increase the amount of time it takes for the burner to light at all - essentially for the same reason.

On my oven the other issue was the burner itself ... it had corroded somewhat so the flame didn't automatically 'move' around to the other side of the burner. I removed the burner & cleaned the surface with a brass brush - problem soved. So essentially I had two issues - burner requiring maintenance & replacment of the ignitors.

As an aside I'm no expert - just relaying my experience.

SOURCE: GE Spectra XL Oven does not maintain oven temperature

The most logical solution for your problem would be a faulty thermostat, but yet at the same time i dont understand how it would heat to the temp desired then not come on at all. I would definately change the thermostat to start off with. Let us know :-D

What ever setting I use Toaster, Pizza etc the oven runs for 3 minutes and stops and in the read out window E 1 comes on the screen


Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds. Plug in, set clock. When making pizza punch in the time you wish it to run, such as "7:30" then "start". Watch carefully the first time to see how much time it takes to cook to your liking.

Gas Pizza Oven - Heat issues


Many of the Pizza ovens require ceramic plates that line the bottom surface of each oven. These ceramic plates absorb the heat and retain the temperature. I never used our ovens with a bare lower surface, always applied the plates for even heat and distribution.

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?


Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

Pizza dough spilled into top of oven.


Pizza sauce tends to be highly conductive and corrosive. If it got into the keypad or control board it is probably causing a short. It may be able to be carefully cleaned with alcohol but some disassembly is required.
