HI. This will generally be an issue with either the wiring at the door switch mechanism, or the door switch itself. Check the door lock switches and wiring. If the wiring is connected well, this will lead to a failed door lock switch mechanism. Use my procedure below to confirm switch failure.


Before repairs or further testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. Once access is gained, set the latch to the "clean" position and test for circuit continuity at the terminals of the switch with your VOM's ohmmeter function. If there is no continuity, the switch is faulty. Use cuation when testing.

F8 alert. What does this mean? The clock and "cancel" buttons work, but no heating buttons work, and self-clean will not operate.


F8 code means your door latch assy needs to be replaced, them you have options:
1. Turn it off on the circuit braker
2. Replace the door latch.

It will continue to try to lock itself most likely, as door latch micro-switch logic is messed up.

Hope helps.

F8 means a fault on the door locking switch.

Something may be preventing the door lock from operating properly.

The solution is to have the door lock switch and wiring checked over.

Put oven through self clean for 2 hours. Oven


What has happened is IF the temp gets to hot in the electronic controls area, an in line fuse/limit burns out and shuts down everything.
I have a DACOR tech sheet HERE

So what I think is happening is the in line fuse in the wiring harness could be blown. You won't know till you or someone checks.

I don't know how to clean the oven


You should have a function switch that says " self clean ". Normally, all you have to do is turn the control on to "self clean" and let the oven do the rest. It will take about 3 hours or so to complete the cycle.

You probably tripped a safety thermostat in the back of each oven. If you turn off the breaker and find a way to pull the units out you could probably remove the rear panel and reset the thermostat by pushing in a button on the back of the open thermo. Some thermo's aren't resettable though so you'd have to buy a replacement.
