sounds like your probe connection may be shorted. Can you inspect the probe itself, and perhaps do a test for continuity with an ohm meter? Also, you might be able to disable the probe in the menu settings, and run it on manual, just for a test.
Do you still have the user's manual for this unit?
Well, your temp sensors can still be bad. If not, there's always a new control board you buy!
However, I wouldn't drink water from that oasis without making ABSOLUTELY sure I'm not seeing a mirage.
The only common denominators between your upper and lower oven temp readings is the firmware and the oven thermometer you are using to visually check the temps.
What type of thermometer are you using to check your oven temperatures with?
If it's not a digital thermometer used specifically for testing ovens, you might just be leading leading yourself astray.
You need a calibrated thermometer. If I don't have a calibrated digital thermometer on me, I use two or three oven thermometers (the dial type) and average the readings.
It's the only way to be as close as possible with a digital probe.
If you have thoroughly verified that your oven is in fact not reading the correct temperature, then you can adjust it +/- 35 degrees F via your oven's control panel.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1 - Press Setup pad.
2 - Select the down arrow to scroll to the next screen.
3 - Select Temp Adjust using the Quickset pads.
4 - Select upper or lower oven (select models).
-"Set temperature offset using the Upper Set Knob" is displayed.
5 - Enter the desired temperature change using the Set knob.
The temperature can be increased or decreased up to 35 degrees.
The temp. change is displayed at the top of the window.
6 - Press the Set knob to accept the change.
Now, if you are still worried about the temp. reading being off, replace both the upper and lower temp sensors. That's all you can do besides replace the main board.
To Set a Cook T ime: 1. On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER OVEN for the one you want to set. 2. Press BAKE or CONVECT UPPER (on some models). Press the number pads to enter a temperature other than the one displayed. 3. Press COOK TIME. 4. Press the HR and MIN "up" or "down" arrow pads to enter the length of time to cook. 5. Press START/ENTER. The start time and stop time countdown will appear on the oven display. On double oven models only, when both upper and lower ovens are being used at the same time, touch UPPER OVEN or LOWER OVEN to display the respective cook time. When the stop time is reached, the oven will shut off automatically and "End" will appear on the oven display. If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound, then reminder tones will sound every minute. Repeat the process by choosing the other option of UPPER or LOWER OVEN
Problem is usually either temperature probe or heating element.
Grab a multimeter and set it on impedance (Ohms). Remove first temperature probe and then heating element. If either probe or element is reading open (ohms infinity), then replace the part.
If both probe and elements are not open, then the problem is either wiring or oven electronic control. The most common fault resulting in no heat is the temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity.
Remove the oven from the wall. Remove the rear panel. The upper and lower ovens have a non-resettable thermal fuse that has blown. Use a VOM to verify which fuse. After repair use Easy Off, not self clean.
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
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!
cobrapilot sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Some where in the oven the contacts going to the oven probe are closing. This could be wiring going to the probe missing insulation and hitting the sheet metal, or the probe socket itself closed. I usually see this after the unit is in use, not right after install. Have you tried to cook a roast or such in the probe mode to see if it will work? For the oven may work just fine then. You are correct about your last line, until service resolves this issue, you have just an expensive microwave. Also as a side note, be sure an be there when the tech showes up. They may just try to say we need a part and not actually attempt to fix your unit. I am not sure what area you are in, however try Olson Appliance Service, He has a website, he is authorized Kitchen Aide service and maybe he can help.
