Oven not heating

All control lights work, including the pre-heat 135 degree light, but the oven stays cold.

    We have owned this oven for about 7 years. In that time, we have replaced the mother board/control panel 3 times, costing us a fortune. We also had the light strobing problem and when it was finally fixed, the two halogen bulbs $45 each were burned out. Dacor was no help. Now everything seems to be working properly, but the oven will not heat up. We are ready to chuck it out the window.

    We put our 3 yr old oven thru the self-clean cycle and now we can't get it to heat up on bake, boil, convection, etc. Is there a manual reset button somewhere?

    Broil setting conked out and oven won't heat above 140. What's up with that?

    I have exactly the same problem. Just used the oven a day ago to broil and bake. Today, it will not heat at all. And, will neither broil, convect or self-clean.

    I have a MCS127S Dacor oven. Turned it on to cook dinner last night and it will not heat. Light comes on at 135 degrees, but will not go above this temperature. Have not had self-cleaner on. Have pushed the cancel/secure button and held for 3 seconds, and have checked that time is correct. Any other suggestions????

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.

Broiler turns to pre heatworks oven doesnt heat when temp

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.

When the oven is heating up, a light inside the oven flashes very brightly. Not sure what that means or if it is unsafe.

when the oven is cold open it and ensure the light inside is screwed in fully. It is probably making poor contact when it is cold.
If that does not fix it, ignore it. If the power to the element was shorting it would trip the earthleakage or your main power switch.

Fan and light work, oven stays cold

one of three things are possible:either you are missing part of your 240volts at input power,or a bad neutral power wire to heating element,an oven temp control,or the thermocouple that controls oven temp
