There is a calibration procedure you can do using the oven control panel to adjust the thermostat but the most adjustment you can make is no more then 35 degrees either way so if it is over 35 degrees off then it is too far out to calibrate 100%.

Press bake then select a temp of 500 or higher then quickly press and hold the bake button for 5 seconds until "00" is displayed. Then press the up/down arrow to move it in 5 degree increments. Once selected press cancel/secure button.

Using the calibration methods will allow you to adjust the temp closer to the true temp you are reading. Make sure you are using a reliable tempature gauge using a thermocouple(like a fluke meter) at the center rack and give at least 10 minute warm-up before taking the reading. Electric ovens produce a pretty even tempature but it can vary some when the electric coil come on and off. The cheap oven guages that you place in the oven are not very accurate and not dependable. I would verify the tempature is off with a thermocouple based temp guage before calling it out of calibration. Don't trust the actual reading of the digital read out...not very reliable. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    It appears that the calibration moves the indicated temperature on the front either up or down, Does this have to be done for each element or mode (Bake, Convection Bake, and Pure Convection? When I tried it and changed between the three it seemed that they now had different indicated numbers with the same temperature inside the oven. So my final question: If the independent oven thermometer says the oven is 345 when the set temp on the panel says 350 are you lowering the indication by -5 or are you raising the oven by +5?

Dacor oven beeps and shows F1 code

-F1- Alarm “System Watchdog Circuit”
The system will detect a failure in the internal watchdog element relay circuits and will activate a
cancel feature. F1 will be displayed in the time digits and will beep until the cancel button or another
function is selected. An F1 failure could be detected in cook or time of day mode. With an F1 failure
the ERC is picking up a command to supply heat without receiving an input from the membrane. The
watch dog circuit is designed to prevent this.
If the beep continues after pressing cancel check the main control (ERC)

My dacor oven model ECS130SBK is very slow to heat. Sometimes reaching the desired temp. after a long wait. Sometimes it never gets there.

I found the bottom element was not getting any power by using a volt/ohmmeter and a test method described elsewhere. (Shut off power, hold down COOK TIME while turning on power. then within 30 seconds press each mode you want to test and only that element/fan/etc will turn on. Cancels by itself after 30 sec.)

I traced the wire back to the relay (wire checked good) and there was no power getting through the relay although it clicked. Removed the relay board to replace it and found a cold solder joint on the "out" terminal with obvious past arcing carbon. Cleaned and soldered the pin and the oven now works normally.
WHY THE SLOW TO HEAT? The oven turns on all the elements to preheat faster and when it reaches your set temp it beeps and now only turns on the element you selected to maintain the temperature. (Bake or Convection) Our malfunctioning ovens would then cool since the element is not working properly and it must go back into preheat and keep cycling.
BY THE WAY- Don't ever use 4 hours on self clean it kills the boards and/or display. I also put a house fan in front of the oven and blow it into the lower grill to take away some of the heat on the two boards. Learned the hard way!

Dacor Oven - convection fan stays on while on "bake" setting

Question: does the unit appear to hold the correct temperature? Most convection units only turn the heating elements on and off...not the fan. If the unit is reporting operating temp and then taking other direction...and it is cooking right...you're done.
