Question about DCS RGS-305 Professional Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The Infra-red broiler covered by glass does not sear or brown sufficiently

My broiler does not sear or brown suficiently. I've had two DCS trained service techs in, the first replaced the thermostat, but the broiler still under-performed. The second tech brought a thermometer and delcared the broiler was performing as designed as it reached 560 degrees fahrenheit. I was told by a DCS engineer that this self-cleaning all gas model has a design flaw, because the broiler is covered with glass. Do you have any suggestions?

    highendfix, thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately the DCS instruction manual prohibits using any aluminum foil on the actual surfaces of the oven while broiling, i.e. the racks, or the oven door.

    I've owned a DCS RGTC-305 since 2007. The broiler never seared properly. I went to the DCS kitchen in Organe County with several steaks, and pork chops, and demonstrated to the staff that the broiler was not searing. They shrugged their shoulders and said there was nothing they could do. An engineer working there at the time told me it was a design flaw, and that the electric stove seared meat better. I am thrilled to have spend $5,000.00 on a stove whose ignitors burn out regularly and that does not broil worth anything. I'll console myself with the cooktop which is satisfactory.

Broiler not working, Oven OK

We have a DCS RG-366 SS L, a 36" gas range and the igniter went out. You could smell gas and the igniter would glow red - but no fire across the broiler.

There is a place in Michigan called We bought a replacement igniter from them and it works like a charm. It was $53 (we live close by and didn't have to have it shipped).

The item number (from the invoice) is 1191 and the box the igniter came in looks like it is manufactured by FSP, code 082005, and there is a larger number on the box that says 786324 IGNTR-OVEN.

Hope this helps.

Help in Replacing broiler igniter DCS RG-486GD

You have to remove the back of the range; the wires plug into the gas valve that controls gas to the broiler.  They detach by pulling on the slip on connector.

Frigidaire single oven broiling

The pan and it's grid is all you need, The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. Some helpful info.. Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. BE SURE THE DOOR IS OPEN AN INCH OR TWO WHILE BROILING
