Okay. Im a goofball. My bulb was out in the oven in my Dacor RSD30S. So, I looked inside and saw the light housing. Instead of realizing that all I had to do was unscrew the glass cover to get the light bulb, like a retard, I saw the two screws holding what I thought was the glass cover in place and unscrewed them. They actually hold the whole light assembly in place.

When the second screw came out the light assembly dropped about an inch and I heard a loud electrical POP and saw a brief flash. Well, retard move number two, I left the ovens power on at the time.

So, I ordered and put a new light housing in place hoping that would fix the problem. It didnt. Something on one of the circuit boards got hosed Im guessing.

I have the burner removal tool because I had to take the top apart early in the week to replace the touchpad cuz I had that dreaded F0 error problem. I got that all fixed up but go and turn an easy bulb replacement into a bigger deal.

I took the stove top off and followed the black and white wires from the light housing to their respective connections and saw no obvious breaks or scorching.

Any idea on the part that I would need to fix this?

Okay. Dug a little further into this and found my issue. I found scorching on the back of the circuit board where the black wire plugs in to.

Sucks.

Will check into cost of new board and or see about getting this one off one lazy day and trying to fix the board myself or have it fix if price is too high for new one.

Everything else works on the oven except for the light so I might live with it.

Not sure that's the right one for your range. They have different part numbers and the link I posted is the one that pulls up with your model number.

if the damage to the board isn't too bad you should be able to solder a wire across the burnt trace

or if you really dont want to replace a costly board just for an oven light you can find a place to mount a 5 dollar push button on the range and route the wires from the board to that switch

 

The only stupid question is the one not asked

hope i've been helpfull, if you wish to buy Brnt beer kick here

Thank you for that. I think I will try to do just that. I was thinking of soldering on the PCB etc but wasnt sure it would work.

The backup option of the light switch is a good one too. An easy fix for what is otherwise a perfectly functioning oven. Do you know where I could draw power from? to line into that black lead?

you should have a wiring diagram on the unit somewhere...

on the back panel, inside the console on tucked inside a side panel

if you can past this up we can let you know how to bypass the relay for the oven light on the range control

I have the same problem as this as the light button no longer does anything when pressed. I replaced the light bulbs with standard appliance light bulbs so I know they are good. However, for a while it worked and then worked sometimes when pressed and sometimes not. No it does not work at all. What I would like to know is the following:

1) if I replace this board will my lights start working?
2) Which board part number should I use?
3) How do I replace the board? - aka remove the front panel and put the board in

I have upgraded my membership to premium as this appears to be the only place that I could find any information if at all on this range I have.

Any help would be appreciated
