I have a DCS professional grade 6 burner oven. It is approx 2 years old. For several months, I have had problems with the pilot light on my oven going out. I would always go out when I turned the oven off, but had progressed to the point that it would go out in the middle of use. I finally got the people out to check it out. Their repairman replaced the "thermal coupling" (I think that is what he called it). It worked for only a few days and is now worse that it was before. Any ideas/suggestions? I do plan to call the repairman again, but he was absolutely convinced that this was the problem. I would like some info before I talk to the appliance store.

This sounds a lot like a defective pressure regulator.
If you do not have one externally connected, then the internal regulator is faulty.
If internal, it shouldn't be too difficult to DIY.
Just make sure the pressure rating is the same as the one that has failed.
Hi; Is the oven run with LP or NAT gas. Sounds like a regulator problem not letting enough gas through. Also is this a comercial unit. If so when was the last time all burners and pilot orafices were cleaned out. The burner tubes have a air vent cut into the burner at the orafice. Make sure no debris have covered these airways.And lastly how old are the thermocouples and are they secure to the gas valves and have a good pilot flame on them...
I just did this same repair...same part number as above (Part #211696 "Electronic Oven Control, Double).
to install you have to remove two screws on the top of the display section of the oven, as well as several screws on the bottom of it, and the screws holding the close pin/temperature probe socket.
Then you can pull off the whole top section (slowly) and remove the two connectors to the existing control unit.
Then release the ribbon cable connected to the control unit on the inside of the top section (press the two small pins inward and slide up the small front section of the black socket to release the ribbon connector.
Unscrew the old control panel, screw in the new one, connect the ribbon, and then reverse removal steps. Easy!
Had the same display issue with my DCS WOS-230. The display was fading and made it very hard to read clock and temp setting. Called DCS/Fisher Paykal and was told I need the Control system kit for $335.00 to fix the issue. After reading the input on this issue on this site I pushed them to sell me just the DCS EOC 211696 double display module 100-01095-00. Install took 10 minutes and everything works great. Thanks all for laying the groundwork as DCS will really push hard to sell you the more expensive kit that you do not need.
Had the same problem last week - called DCS (which automatically transferred me to Fischer-Paykel) and was able to order the part from them. They knew exactly what it was, and shipped to me in CA from CA, it was less than $90. Just installed it, and the new one works swell. One suggestion - I drew with a Sharpie on one side of each of the three parts that plug into the board to help align the new one, and to install the wide ribbon cable (not really a cable, but you'll know what I mean), pull up on the two side pieces and the ribbon pulls right out. Keep it up and slide the new one in and then push the black piece down. That was the only part that took me a minute to figure out.
