Dacor model W305 oven element will not turn off
If the element in your Dacor W305 oven will not turn off, there are a few things you can try:
- Turn off the power to the oven by unplugging it or switching off the circuit breaker. Wait a few minutes and then turn the power back on to see if the element has reset.
- Check the oven's temperature sensor. If the sensor is faulty, it may be sending the wrong signal to the oven's control board, which can cause the element to stay on. You can test the sensor with a multimeter to see if it's functioning properly.
- Check the oven's control board. If the control board is faulty, it may be sending a continuous signal to the element to stay on. You may need to replace the control board if this is the case.
- If the element is physically damaged, it may be causing a short circuit that keeps it on. In this case, you will need to replace the element.
If none of these solutions work, it may be best to contact a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue.

Have Dacor wall oven ECS130SBK . The time is correct but to the right it says OFF in red. How do I fix it?
If your Dacor wall oven displays "OFF" in red, it means that the oven is not turned on or is in standby mode. To turn on the oven, follow these steps:
- Press the "Bake" or "Convection Bake" button.
- Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired temperature.
- Press the "Start" button to begin preheating the oven.
If the oven still displays "OFF" after following these steps, try turning the power to the oven off for a few minutes and then turning it back on. If the issue persists, there may be a problem with the oven's control board or wiring and you may need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician for further assistance.

Dacor double oven model ECD227SCH relay board preventing oven from working......
It sounds like you may be having an issue with your Dacor double oven. If the relay board is preventing the oven from working, there could be a problem with the board itself or with a component it controls.
To troubleshoot this issue, you may want to try the following steps:
- Check the oven's electrical connection and circuit breaker. Make sure the oven is properly plugged in and that the circuit breaker has not tripped.
- Check the relay board for any visible damage, such as burnt or melted components. If you find any damage, the board may need to be replaced.
- Check the oven's thermostat. It is possible that the thermostat may be faulty and not allowing the oven to heat up.
- Check the heating element. If the element is not heating up, it may need to be replaced.
If these steps do not help resolve the issue, you may need to call a repair technician to diagnose and fix the problem. It is generally not recommended to try to repair an oven yourself, as it can be dangerous and may void the manufacturer's warranty.

My Dacor wont heat, broil or convection after self cleaning
I also have a Dacor Model PCS130. This solution worked AND saved me from spending $50-$105 for a service technician to come out just to look at the problem.
The high temperature sensor tripped when I kept the door open part way while broiling (never listen to friends who don't have the same oven as yours). Afterwards, I couldn't get the oven to go above the prebake temperature of 135°F using any of the settings (bake, broil, convection bake, etc...).
I called Dacor customer service and they told me about the high temperature sensor but wouldn't say how to reset it. They suggested I call a third party technical service company and gave me their numbers. But, I'm glad I found this site...
All you have to do is open the oven door and you'll see the grille/grate/steel cover plate where the door latch sticks out of. If you look inside, you can see the electronics that operate the door latch as well as the temperature sensor unit a little farther back. You can even see the RED reset button. But, it's a little too far back for you to press it without removing the cover plate.
6 screws is what holds my cover plate in place. Once that's off, you can reach in and press the RED reset button (I pressed it twice just to make sure) and you'll hear it click. Screw the cover plate back in place. Close the oven door and test it out.
It took my oven about 5 minutes to heat up past 135°F so I was unsure if the problem was fixed or not during that time. But, once the oven heated up sufficiently, the temperature began climbing fairly quickly and I was able to breath a sigh of relief. It works!
This is such an easy fix, I don't know why Dacor customer support doesn't just tell us how to do it ourselves instead of paying for a service tech to come out and do the same thing. Even better, maybe they should make the reset button more easily accessible (like on the control panel) if they're concerned about people getting in and messing up the other electrical connections when trying to reset the high temperature switch. Computers are far more technically advanced than your oven and THEY have reset/reboot buttons right in front.

Dacor bottom oven not heating
I have a DACOR double electric oven model ECD230SCH. the top oven lower element went out 1 and 1/2 years ago, but the top element broiler works. Yesterday the bottom oven did the same thing- bottom element not working along with convection. Pulled off doors and cut breaker. Checked thermal switch on top off oven- closed good. Pull out element and Ohm'ed out- good. Now pulled over and out oven top panel to get to the control boards. Found a nice set of schematics for the over control boards and electronics. Sat down and pin-pointed both relays that supply power to upper and lower oven "lower" heating elements. these are on 2 different boards- upper over relays on bigger board on the left with the transformer. Lower oven on the right smaller board. Hardest pain in the rear was just getting the little plastic stand offs to push back through the board to get it off. Finally got it off and inspected board. Low and behold the relay I pin-pointed had a burn/open connection on the solder joint. Re-soldered tested oven and lower oven lower heat element works now! Went to the next board and got that off and same exact problem on the rely for the top oven lower element. Re-solder and test- good!! Put everything together and ran over to 350 on top and lower and back to normal. Wife very happy she did not have to pay a repair man big bucks to swap out the control boards- would have had to replace both.
I have a degree in electronic technology so as a technician for many years did low and high voltage component level repairs. But pretty easy and you can visually see the open solder joint on the back of the board at the relay leg.

Taking way too long to heat
Usually when an oven is slow to heat, it is because of a bad element. You can look at the upper (broil) and lower(bake) and see if they appear to have any major burn marks on them, It may just look like something spilled on it untill you look closer or try to clean it off. if you do not find any obvious problems, turn the oven on and wait a fem minutes, then see if the bake element is glowing. Also look at the broil element, they should both be glowing at least a little orange. Compare how it works to the other oven that works properly. If only one of your elements is glowing, either you have a bad element (which is usually apparent on visual inspection) or a bad relay board that controls the element. The element is easy to change, onlt a couple screws and 2 wires (turn off the breaker first!!), the relay board is pricey, and a pain in the tookas. if you decide to guess, try the element first. Hope this is at least a little helpful.
