Question about Dacor Ovens
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: oven not heating
i have had this problem twice. once was the heating element actually had shorted out because the little ceramic holders had broken, this necessitated getting new element. can be checked out with an ohmmeter by yourself or by taking element into appliance repair place. the other time, it was that the manual reset switch had tripped after a self-clean cycle. actually at the moment, that has happened again- design flaw perhaps in the RSD30 range?
so anyone who can tell a reasonable competent refrigeration/HVAC technician where the manual reset switch is would be appreciated.

HI - I just had the same problem - repairman came and reset the breaker in the oven which "tripped" (even tho I havent used the lower oven in months). Read posts here on other Dacor ovens which explain how to get to the reset switch to avoid having $150 in repair costs - I have not tried that myself tho but good luck!

I have the single oven of this style and I had to replace the thermocouple (part number 4450934) on the back of the oven three times (used the cleaning cycle three times). After using the cleaning cycle, the oven would not heat so each time I had to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back so I could change the part. Once a new part was put on the back of the oven, it worked fine. To pull the oven out, open the oven door and look down by the doors hinges. On each side you will see a screw that's holding the side molding on. Remove the screws and then the molding. That will give you access to the screws that hold the oven into the framing around the oven. Remove the screws and then you can pull the oven out to access the back to change the thermocouple. The oven is heavy so you may want some help to get out. It is not a one man job, maybe a one man and wife job. It is heavy. I hope this helps. Better late than never.

SOURCE: Upper oven not working
thismay be caused by a few issues, either the bake elemnt has gone bad, or a high temp thermo has gone bad not allowing element ot come on.. have to remove the oven from the opening and acces t he rear panel to check either

SOURCE: Upper oven elements don't heat
Hello- 'Successfully' sounds like you were forewarned.... During the 'self-clean' cycle a circuit or connection to the upper elements burned out while attempting to turn stuff inside the oven to ash. Since this is a wall oven my recommendation is for service from a good tech in your area. You may have lucked out with a fried connector, but many times control board is damaged beyond repair and must be replaced. Only on-site diagnostics will confirm, and this is a very heavy unit for most owners to safely service. - Remember- Don't use 'self clean'!! Scrape and clean with soapy water and cloth. Turn on oven to 450deg. for 30 min. Much safer. Less costly. Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- Have more if needed. Thanks- Ed
