Question about De Dietrich Ovens

2 Answers

My oven closed down after 1½ hours, all the lights went out. After some hours, the light came back. After two summer months, our electrician was called. He found out, the blower did not work. So he ordered one and put it in. Next time, I could not stand in the kitchen without sneezing, neither my husband, because the oven sent out so much cold air while warming up. It worked well and now shut down after 10 minutes. How can I now not have all that cold air in my back? He says air must come out over the front door. But I think it never bothered me before. He ordered the correct blower to put in, he says. There is no other way to let the air come out. I think it's so cold. He checked the oven number to be DOC 54 0ye 11, type EF=D11. What can be wrong? A Kitchen Firm HTH Koekkenforum Svendborg, Denmark, delivered the oven 4 years ago. hanneogmartin@gmail.com living in Svendborg, Denmark.

    Well. However, only one sort of fan can be bought, so I think people cannot live with that. Of course, I could leave the kitchen for 15 minutes at the beginning. Think the fan should not blow as long as the air is cold, only start when the heat has come to the ordered temperature?

    Thank you. That is a good idea. I have already arranged for the electrician to come today, too, as he had forgotten something else. He thought it was normal the air should come out at the front and in such amount, and he says things have been put correctly.
    I shall tell him in Danish what you wrote. He's coming today - I shall have my Australian guests staying here for this week from to-morros, you see.

    The electrician came, I talked to his chef, who then said there will come air out of an oven - a thing that has perhaps not happened here for a few years. They are convinced all is in order, so I thank you all for the kind and good answers you gave us. I could then ask the firm better. HK

Hi.

Re:I could not stand in the kitchen without sneezing, neither my husband, because the oven sent out so much cold air while warming up. It worked well and now shut down after 10 minutes.

It looks like the original problem was not the fan, or not only the fan, but probably also control board defect or wiring problem. I think the Oven Electronic Control is more likely the fault.

Regarding the fan blowing cold air, that was also not normal. Either the fan had been wired incorrectly, there was a contact, or the electronic control was defective. I would exclude the problem being caused by the wrong part. At most the fan would have been working (or not working) with the incorrect voltage supplied.
You should have called back the repairer immediately, so that the rectify of the problem would have been covered.

The problem is rather uncommon, and also rather complex. Plainly replacing OEC (control board) is a bit of a risk, this parts are expensive and testing is needed before replacement.
I think that you need a technician on site to test the oven.

Please let me know if you have more questions.
If this comment was helpful do not forget to accept the solution.

    Hi.

    A little air coming from the front of a fan assisted oven is normal, if the air flow is really disturbing you, that is not normal.
    Also ensure that the oven door is well placed. Badly installed hinges or door problems may cause more air getting out of the oven.
    If a technician is coming he will notice immediately if the air flow is normal or if it is caused by a problem.

    Hi.

    If the tech is still around you can tell him/her to have a look at door closing and hinges. If the air was not coming out of the oven with same flow intensity as now, there may be a problem with door not closing well. If the door is closing well, little air coming out of the oven is normal.

    Have a great day.

Hello. It sounds like he did not install the correct fan, but instead a much more powerful fan. One possible fix would be to have a local sheet metal fabricator make a small hood to divert the air and have it blow down to the floor. J.

My display is broken so I cant put oven on any advice


Had a similar problem over a year ago on my Rangemaster, neither of the ovens would come on, only the gas hob worked.
The cost of a new display unit was around £100 plus so decided to check out the unit by removing it (it was quite easy to do; but remember to isloate the cooker from the mains before you start dismantling).
On my display there were six wires plugged into it. I marked each one and the display before removing them so that they all went back to the correct location (i am not an electrician and am therefore an electrical numpty).
Firstly I degreased each male and female connector using an electrical spray degreaser/cleaner and then cleaned them using very fine emery paper and a special pen with glassfibre bristles until they gleamed and then gave them a final spray to remove any debrie left by the cleaning process.
Before i put everything back i also cleaned all the connectors to the switches etc which were accessable in a similar manner; about another eight/ten in total.
Following reassembly and switching the power back everything started working again. All this work took about an hour and my cooker has been working fine for the last 12 months.

Tip

I have the same issue, however, whirlpool and the three recommended service...


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

My MV1608WW microwave oven stopped working a while back. I have had it a couple of years. The power came on and lights, but nothing on the key pad worked. I had it unplugged for several months and...


The electronics inside the unit may have just needed to be reset by removing power to it. I can't tell you whether or not it's safe to use. If you are unsure I would suggest having it checked out by an electrician or appliance tech first.

Lock light on frigdaire self cleaning oven


OK, this is not a good situation here. your Electronic Oven Control board is damaged. the logic sectors are faulty. The F-1 represents a major EOC failuer and, you will need to replace your EOC(clock) asap, if possible.

Turning off oven.


The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer
