Taking way too long to heat
Usually when an oven is slow to heat, it is because of a bad element. You can look at the upper (broil) and lower(bake) and see if they appear to have any major burn marks on them, It may just look like something spilled on it untill you look closer or try to clean it off. if you do not find any obvious problems, turn the oven on and wait a fem minutes, then see if the bake element is glowing. Also look at the broil element, they should both be glowing at least a little orange. Compare how it works to the other oven that works properly. If only one of your elements is glowing, either you have a bad element (which is usually apparent on visual inspection) or a bad relay board that controls the element. The element is easy to change, onlt a couple screws and 2 wires (turn off the breaker first!!), the relay board is pricey, and a pain in the tookas. if you decide to guess, try the element first. Hope this is at least a little helpful.

Was getting F1 code.
Hi.Lert me just clarify if the panel board you are referring to is the breaker or the circuit breaker. Now you can actually check the terminal end of your unit by removing the back cover.unscrew it and usually it will b e poasitioned vrtically and horizontally.It is located at the upper right back corner of your unit.You can actually check if there was an open circuit or short circuit happened that possibly why your oven is not working well.CHECK FIRST THE CONTINUITY OF THE CIRCUIT unit using a multitester.Unplug first the unit.set the tester to ohms lowest value times 10 multiplier value.now check live wire 1 by 1 .connect 1 end of the tester to a live wire and the other line to the neutral or. ground wire usually a white wire.now check if the testers opointer move or not.If it does not there is an open circuit but if it reached infinite or maximum value then circuit is short-circuited.which means two lines nolonger separated by an insulator probably it was burnt.Now if this is the scenario,you may as well consult it to a technician because they will test each ic on the circuit on the control panel of the unit (not the breaker).hope this idea helps you to figure out what'S happening on your unit.Thank you for bchoosing FIXYA.

Dacor bottom oven not heating
I have a DACOR double electric oven model ECD230SCH. the top oven lower element went out 1 and 1/2 years ago, but the top element broiler works. Yesterday the bottom oven did the same thing- bottom element not working along with convection. Pulled off doors and cut breaker. Checked thermal switch on top off oven- closed good. Pull out element and Ohm'ed out- good. Now pulled over and out oven top panel to get to the control boards. Found a nice set of schematics for the over control boards and electronics. Sat down and pin-pointed both relays that supply power to upper and lower oven "lower" heating elements. these are on 2 different boards- upper over relays on bigger board on the left with the transformer. Lower oven on the right smaller board. Hardest pain in the rear was just getting the little plastic stand offs to push back through the board to get it off. Finally got it off and inspected board. Low and behold the relay I pin-pointed had a burn/open connection on the solder joint. Re-soldered tested oven and lower oven lower heat element works now! Went to the next board and got that off and same exact problem on the rely for the top oven lower element. Re-solder and test- good!! Put everything together and ran over to 350 on top and lower and back to normal. Wife very happy she did not have to pay a repair man big bucks to swap out the control boards- would have had to replace both.
I have a degree in electronic technology so as a technician for many years did low and high voltage component level repairs. But pretty easy and you can visually see the open solder joint on the back of the board at the relay leg.
