Question about Dacor Epicure ERD30 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove

One day I was cooking in the stove and all of a sudden I saw a blue pop in the stove our of the corner of my eye. Since then the electric heating element in the stove doesn't heat up. Any help is appreciated. We have a ERD30 Dual Fuel Stove. Steps I have taken... Check the circuit breaker. Turned the oven off for an extended period of time and then turned it on. No luck with either. Tonight I might open it up and see if there is a fuse or something. Thanks again for your help.

    I really appreciate your help. There is no evidence of a "burned-out" spot on the element in the oven. If you have time and can explain the wire procedure, I would appreciate it greatly. Thanks again for your help.

It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)

    To repair a burned-out wire requires you to pull the range completely out of it's counter-space, then remove the back panels and physically snip, strip, crimp and repair any wire damage that may have occurred.

    Trust me, if all you've done is to "look" at the element to see if it's okay - then that isn't enough, because moving on to wire repair is a LOT of work. So you want to be sure it's not the element.

    You need to check that element with an ohmmeter first to see if it's properly carrying electrical current. If it IS an okay element... then you probably have to repair a burned up wire. Which, as I said, takes a lot of effort.

    Nevertheless, first find out for sure if your element is good or bad. If you go to an appliance parts store, they should be happy to check it for you and tell you if it's good or bad.

    If it's bad, they can sell you a new one. But write down the model & serial number of your range before you go! They almost always have to have those numbers...

My best advise would be to cut the power at the

the RANGE powered down until a new

I am guessing... but I suspect the SWITCH got

I would got to a SERIOUS parts house and order

Loud pop and light behind stove. Stove top works, oven does not.

Good Morning Stephanie - Typically you may locate the model and serial number in the storage drawer, on the right side. Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or a faulty bake and/or broiler element. If resetting the unit did not solved the issue, at this point I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the range to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Replace the switch for the bad element. It is stuck internally in the ON position.

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle...

Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

Hi, There is no sure reason. This just happens. The element had a weak spot on it and finally gave way. Change the element and you should be fine. I hope this helps. Anything else I can assist you with, plesae let me know.
