Question about Dacor Epicure ERD30 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
Has anyone had problems with the enamel deteriorating and falling off on the inside of the oven? If so, how did you go about getting it repaired or replaced? I have a Dacor RSD30 Dual Fuel stove and the enamel is falling off the inner facing of the oven. It is 4 years old and I rarely use the oven. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks Having the same problem with our Dacor ERD30 dual fuel. Enamel is chipping on the bottom of the oven. It is 4 years old. Dacor has already replaced our dishwasher out of warranty, so they will be getting a phone call from me on Tuesday for sure. A $3400 oven should not do this - period. Anybody have a solution yet?

The only solution I know of for the enamel coming off on these units is replacement of the unit, and since it is 4 years old you are going to have a tough time getting dacor to replace it or even give you a credit towards a new one. I have never actually seen the problem on a Dacor. Does the unit have a hidden lower bake element? If you cannot seee the elemnt its hidden, and you cannot put tin foil on the floor of any unit wiht a hidden bake element, as it will damage the finish. I know this isnt much help, but I work on Dacor products regularly as we are an authorized servicer, and I can't say I've ever seen a finish problem on one. Best bet at this point is to call Dacor and see if they will do anything about it. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove
It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)

The reset button is located near (probably behind) the latch that locks your door during sef clean. The reset is located in the middle a thermostat that looks like a round disc the size of a quater and about 1/4 to a 1/2 inch high with two wires, one on each side, plugged into it. Usually with a long thin screwdriver and the power turned off you can reset it with out having to take anything, or at least very little parts, off.

This is one of the hardest stoves to get into. Turn off the breaker.
Pull off the burner knobs. This should reveal four large plastic nuts holding the console in place. You can turn them gently with channel locks straight on - not from the side. After you've got the console loose, everything else is downhill. There's lots of screws behind console, and across the bottom of the console (just above the door.) Remove just the ones you need, or face the wrath of Dacor!
Be careful about the rubber strip across the top of the console. It often stretches during a repair. You might have to cut off 1/4 to 1/2 in to get it to fit again.
The large plastic nuts are very east to get cross threaded when replacing them. I recommend turning them counterclockwise until you can feel the threads line up.

You must inspect all switch contacts, wire continuity, and connections to be ok.

I have the same chipping also. My first dacor RDS 30 chipped after 2years. It was under warranty so Dacor gave me a new one. Now after 4 years on the second one the enamel is chipping too.
This is a quality issue with Dacor. Baked on enamel finishes when properly applied should last longer than a lifetime. You need to insist on a warranty replacement. Have them explain how a 300 dollar Hotpoint Range can outlast the enamel finish on your Dacor. They won't have a respective answer.
