Question about Dacor Preference PGR30SS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

REALLY long to preheat ...

I recently bought a used Dacor PGR30SS (gas and convection) from a homeowner. The person I bought it from had just moved into a new house and didn't like the oven b/c she said it took a really long time to preheat.

She wasn't kidding. Started it up last night at 7:49pm, set it for 400 degrees. At 8pm the internal temperature hadn't risen above 135. Finally at 8:30 on the dot the oven beeped to let me know it had reached 400 degrees.

I realize I should first do a temp check to make sure the internal thermometer is actually not the issue, and plan to try to do that tonight. But any other suggestions?

Hot surface Ignitor is bad most likely. Normal wear and tear. You can check it by looking at it, it should be black. If it's white, it's no good.

Is the hot surface ignitor supposed to stay on all the time on my PGR30SS? My oven takes a long time to heat up.


( yes) most ovens that use hot surface system stay on during heating . if its weak is orange glow instead of white hot . this would cause slow heat up / hope this helped ****

My Dacor wont heat, broil or convection after self cleaning. No heat but everything else works The bake, broil, and convection elements on my Dacor CPS130 electric wall oven will not heat.  The oven has...


like another person stated-from the front behind the door, take off the 6 screws and the cover by the latch. there is an "oven hi temp limit switch" It is crome with 2 heavy black wires connected to it. On the back side of this is a small red button which will reset the limit switch. I had the same issue (everything worked except the any of the heating elements) and quickly resolved.

Oven door won't open


Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.

Here is the link to the forum:
http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html

In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:

Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.

Press and hold these keys on sequence:

convection bake
standard bake
pure convection
broil
timer 2 (momentary push only)
stop time
clock


Finally, we arrive at the test we want:
Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.

Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).


I hope this helps.
