My brother has a weird Dacor convection oven. He called today to tell me it isn't heating. He says he "reset it" (power off / power on) and it would heat to about 150° F.
It 45 miles from my house, but I came by to help with some other wiring issues and got the model number. The door wasn't shutting completely - the latch hook was bent slightly up so it wasn't engaging. Adjusted that and the door closes better, although no where near the closed feel of my KitchenAid oven. Nonetheless, put my oven thermometer in, turned it 350° Bake and - nothing. No heat. No glowing coils. Nada.
I didn't see the thermocouple anywhere - I assume its hidden behind the back panel which encloses the fan. That would be my first guess, but I'd rather approach this with an intelligent diagnostic technique. What should I check and what values should I see. A service manual / wiring diagram would be great if anyone has access. Thanks as always.
