Question about Dacor PCS230 Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Bake, convection bake, self clean, time set don't work. we now press "pure convection" and the "cancel" on lower oven keypad in order to adjust temperature which can only be adjusted from 355 degrees and up. The lower oven doesn't work at all since it doesn't have convection. Do we need to purchase a new control board or is there a way to reset everything via the control pad.

Hello!
Is this unit a DACOR PCS230?
There is a reset button associated with this model, but would like to confirm first if this is the exact model you have, before giving you the location.
You can visually inspect for any burnt parts especially on the relay parts of the control board if this the one to be repalced.

Please confirm first if this is the brand and model. Thanks!

    Hello!
    Try this procedure to get access the Reset button. There is some variations depending on models but mos likely same with locations.

    1. First, make sure the unit is turn off, unplug it for your protection..

    2. Open the oven door that is located directly below the control panel / LED display. In the area above the oven opening but below the control panel you should see a series of horizontal slots.

    3. Remove all screw you will find, holding the metal plate in place. There were 8 screws. Once the screws were remove you can pull it out easily. (No need to remove the control panel)

    4. Look behind those wires, a small red button ( This is the Reset button). It's not on a board or part of any other assembly. The reset button is mounted standalone in a metal bracket (all by itself). The switch button may vary in its position depending on how it is placed. What you will need to do is push that button



    This round vertically oriented switch body is mounted on a metal

    bracket and the metal bracket is screwed to the top of the oven. The

    entire switch and mounting bracket are only about one inch tall and one

    inch wide by one half inch thick. The round portion of the switch body

    is silver (metallic) on one side and black on the other.

    In my oven, the switch assembly was mounted just left of center in

    about 6 inches from the front edge. Push the reset button...



    NOTE: You might want to turn the power back on and test the elements

    for heating before putting the panel back on.

    Let me know how it goes...

Accidentally hit the oven clean button while baking


Hello there.
From the manual I got

To Stop Self-Clean any time:
Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven
temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not
unlock until the oven cools


Hope it helps/

Upper oven problem,


The Keypad (membrane) switches seem to be malfunctioning, this is very common on ovens these days especially if the unit has been self cleaned often. If you replace the membrane switch the unit should have all its functions again.

Hi,

Do you see any Error Message on the Display?

If not, then it should not be a Concern. More often this could be Thermal Fuse on the Back of the Unit ( On Most Models ) will stop the Broil and Bake from Turning ON. You would just start a bake cycle and the temperature will sit at 100 and something degrees and never raise.appliance.

Let me know, once you check the same.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My upper oven/ convection function on my dacor ecs230b will not heat


Bake and convection bake settings both use the bottom bake element to heat. It would be unusual for bake to work without conv. bake working. You also have pure convection which uses a different element surrounding the conv. fan on the back of the unit. If you press a feature and nothing happens it's the touch pad. If it comes on then turns back off it's probably the ERC (clock). If it comes on and wont heat only in pure conv. possibly an upper relay board or element problem.

My dacor oven model ECS130SBK is very slow to heat. Sometimes reaching the desired temp. after a long wait. Sometimes it never gets there.


I found the bottom element was not getting any power by using a volt/ohmmeter and a test method described elsewhere. (Shut off power, hold down COOK TIME while turning on power. then within 30 seconds press each mode you want to test and only that element/fan/etc will turn on. Cancels by itself after 30 sec.)


I traced the wire back to the relay (wire checked good) and there was no power getting through the relay although it clicked. Removed the relay board to replace it and found a cold solder joint on the "out" terminal with obvious past arcing carbon. Cleaned and soldered the pin and the oven now works normally.
WHY THE SLOW TO HEAT? The oven turns on all the elements to preheat faster and when it reaches your set temp it beeps and now only turns on the element you selected to maintain the temperature. (Bake or Convection) Our malfunctioning ovens would then cool since the element is not working properly and it must go back into preheat and keep cycling.
BY THE WAY- Don't ever use 4 hours on self clean it kills the boards and/or display. I also put a house fan in front of the oven and blow it into the lower grill to take away some of the heat on the two boards. Learned the hard way!

I believe your control board is going bad. This isn't that expensive. However, get one from a GE parts store. They tend to be better priced.

Amana EvenAir Convection Plus Self Cleaning Oven will not unlock.


My oven was locked and would not open. No lock light was on but the oven was clearly locked. F9 error when I hit certain buttons.

Try this. I unplugged the oven for about 5 minutes. Plugged back in. A LOCK light came on. Held down "Oven Cancel" for a few seconds. Door opened and lock light went off. No more F9 error when I hit those buttons.
