Question about Dacor Epicure ERD36 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Dacor ERD36SCH/H will not self clean

About 6 months ago I was cooking pasta on a front burner when the water boiled over. It must have seeped into the electronics below, because the range started to beep. The oven door lock made a grinding sound, and tried to lock the door. The display flashed F8. I finally got it to stop by turning off the power.

I successfully used the self clean cycle once after that.

The other day I tried to used the self clean cycle again, but the door latch makes the same grinding sound and the door will not lock.

Any suggestions?

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?


That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

Hello My gemini top burners cycle on and off,

The burners are designed to cycle on and off, it is technology that helps to keep from burning food. If you are using the correct pan to burner size ratio and high setting on your burner, the water should boil in the normal time. Don't watch the pot (just kidding)

Our Whirlpool speedheat 2600 burners shut down whenever we try to boil water when canning or even making pasta, what do we do?

If the pot is too large or to small for the burner or is concave or convex, the burner will short cycle. Try to match the burner to the pot and be sure the pot is nice and flat on the bottom.

Dacor Range ignitor fails..model# unknown

Is it sparking? What I have found to work well is to take a piece of aluminum foil, crumple it and use it as if it were sandpaper, to clean the sparking electrodes.
