Question about Dacor Epicure ERD36 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven door won't open

I've had a Dacor ERD36 for over 4 years. A couple of days ago I used the oven with no problem, but today the oven door won't open. I did not use the self cleaning feature on the oven. I tried pressing the Cancel/Secure button, and even shutting off the power to the oven, but nothing seems to work. Please let me know what else I can try! Thanks

    I have either the Millennia MCS 127 or MCS 130 wall oven control Panel.

    I've tried pushing cancel.

    I've tried pushing the door in while I push cancel/secure.

    I've tried waiting 30 seconds after pushing cancel/secure.

    I've tried turning off the power source.

    I've tried looking for a reset switch, but can't find it in the small space behind the upper panel. Is it a red button?

Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.

Here is the link to the forum:
http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html

In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:

Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.

Press and hold these keys on sequence:

convection bake
standard bake
pure convection
broil
timer 2 (momentary push only)
stop time
clock


Finally, we arrive at the test we want:
Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.

Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).


I hope this helps.

My dacor microwave convection oven won't turn or heat but but the exhaust, time etc. works.


I found the answer on other posts on this website and it saved me $500! I had the same problem with my Dacor Model ECD2278 double oven. After I ran the self cleaning the top oven would not come on and the lower oven ran almost double the temp that was set. To fix: disconnect power to the oven at the circuit breaker. Open the oven door. You'll see the grille/grate/steel cover in front of the door latch mechanism, and it should have about 4 screws holding it in place. Remove the screws then remove the grille cover. On my model the tiny red reset button was on the right side on top of a black plastic round piece which is about 1" in diameter. Press the little button down til it clicks.

Microwave wasn't heating properly and now the door won't open. The button you push to open the door usually has tension on it but now it has none.


You can remove the control panel assembly, then you'll be able to see the door opening parts.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The Dacor PCOR30 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-1874, so the relevant Sharp service manuals (here and here) will help you with disassembly if you need more help.

The Sharp manuals will not have the proper Dacor part numbers.

For that, see the Dacor PCOR parts list here.

Our favorite place to order Dacor parts is by part number from the Pros here.

Our Dacor ECS130SBK convection oven no longer heats, after using the broiler and leaving the door open.


The element is probably failed. Using an oven in this manner (turned on with the door open) is not good.

The element is replaceable, and will require some electrical tests to confirm the failure.

Often I have to hit the open panel several times to open the DMT24203 purchased in January of this year. It started a couple of weeks ago . Would appreciate any info Patricia Kuhl


This is usually due to grease buildup, or a worn or broken door open button or door open lever.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

If you are a Dacor owner with product covered by a Dacor Warranty, please contact your local Dacor Authorized Service Provider, or contact Dacor at (800) 793-0093. Or, click here to Contact them online.

Fan runs and turntable turns when door is opened


SRUte- This sounds as if you have a collapsed door switch, this would cause this problem,I would not recommend using it until repaired. But as far as recommending a good brand,each to his own everyone is different.I have done repairs for years,and I Love Panasonic products,they seem to have minimal problems.I hope this helps you out. cooltek Mar,3/08

Faulty oven door


This IS SO EASY !! I have the DACOR 48...no tools, 5 minutes and you are done! It took me 8 years of frustration and I fixed it TODAY !!

Just open the door, latch the small hook that binds the two hinges together. Next try to slowly close the door until resistance. Just when you think you might break something push up another 2 inches. Now lower the door , unhook the latch to seperate the hinges (latches) nad PRESTO a snug fit !!
