Oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.

Can't get door back on

This technique is for a DCS range. On the hinge flanges their are two parts to each side. The lower flange has a little clip on it that attaches to the upper flange. To attach these bend these by laying the door down with the inside of the door up and using a rag or something to pad the palm of your hand, press the upper flange down till it meets the lower flange then hinge the clip up (that is on the lower one) and attach it on to the upper one. Do this on both sides then pick up door and slide the flanges into the slots on the range till they meet resistance. Bend the door down slightly, release the clips and close the door. If this doesn't work the first time, repeat process with different door angle. Be careful not to force anything, this is actually easier than it appears.

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.

Left rear iginitor continues to clik when knob is off


The problem is a bad or shorted ignition switches for these burners. Unfortunately these parts are no longer available due to age of the product. If your mom does not care, you can unplug the stove from the outlet and she could use it with a lighter (at least until you will get a new one).

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago

If they ignitors worked properly before you aunt cleaned them, the problem could be with the way they were cleaned and what they were cleaned with. Please tell me how she cleaned them and with what. Also, had she cleaned them before without incurring any problems, or was this the first time she had cleaned them?

Gas burners are ticking

The ticking sound you hear is the electronic ignition which is located by each burner. When you turn a burner on the electronic ignition creates a spark which ignites the gas. Once the burner is ignited. turn the knob a bit further and the ticking will stop.

DCS stove igniters clicking

Actually Dave, when you turn on one burner, all of the igniters do fire. This is normal. Perhaps you never noticed it before. regards, Joe

Broiler won't ignight - 48" gas range

I had the same problem. I'm not a handyman. A repairman came out and had to replace the igniter. Had to order it from Europe, which took about 2 weeks. They get old and crack and don't work after a while, he said.

The front right burner, the one with the most new parts, now has a overly large flame when the burner is lit.

Check the air mixture on the burner sonds like too much air to burn .

The "Heating" light does not


yes, the heating light can be changed/replaced. Follow the below procedures;
  1. Look for the manual to determine what size bulb is required. Most use a 40 watt appliance bulb. If you can not find the manual, then buy a bulb to replace it after you take out the old one.
  2. Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
  3. Open the door and use a flashlight to light the area where the bulb is located. Do not put weight on the door itself, but go in at an angle or sideways.
  4. Find the shield or cover over the bulb, gently pull or twist it off. Some glass covers are surrounded by a wire clip or a ring that is screwed in to the back.
  5. Gently remove either the wire clip or ring. Since the cover is most likely glass, be cautious. Unscrew the entire glass cover similar to a jar lid in older versions of ovens. Then repeat process if there is more than one bulb.
I hope the above helps. If not, please let me know.

Good luck.

The electrical features of my DCS 48-inch gas range will not come on. The power is on, however, the red nob lights, the ignitors and the oven lights will not come on. What is the issue?

Did you test the power with a Proximity power tester, or something else in the plug. If it has a direct contact, fused spur, check the fuse in it. Otherwise, something has failed! My research shows there are no internal fuses. Contact the maker direct. https://www.dcsappliances.com/us/help-and-support ..
