Dacor ovens keep the outside of the ovens cooler than any other brand. Cool, Ambient air is pulled in through the
door at the bottom by the cooling fan then across the controls, down the back of the machine the exits at the bottom
front of the range. If the oven door is left open... the cooling fan will pull the hot air out of the oven cell right across the High Limit Cut-out and electronic controls.If the rear of the range is damaged...this could restrict air flow causing the High Limit Cut-out to trip.
The High Limit Cut-outs are generally accessed from the front and through the upper air vent.
The High Limit Cut-Outs are rated from 240 ̊- 275 ̊ F depending on the model, and are manually resettable.
Never just reset a Hi-limit... there must be a reason the Hi-Limit tripped.
Did the customer open-door broil? No Dacor Products are approved for open-door broiling.
Attached air flow pattern.
I once saw a Dacor installed on a yacht that kept having problems because it installed directly floor level and the air flow was reduced. They never believed me when I told them that was the problem, after two years they finally put a vent in the floor going into the motor room below and had no further challenge with the oven.
