Dacor Single Oven MCS130S

4 posts in this topic

Broil element not working when broil selected and does not self-clean well.  Pulled grid and pushed red button on high temp thermostat to reset but no effect.  All other functions work fine.  Anything further I can do as a DIYer? Thx.

... Broil element not working when broil selected

... and does not self-clean well.

1) may be a bad Broil Element OR a bad Oven Controller

2) :woot:

“My Rules”:

Rule #1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.

Rule #2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule #1.

Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more. burnin.gif

That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

Is there a way to test these to determine if both or just one have malfunctioned? Is there a diagnostic program that can be run? Thx.

Someone would need to test the Broil Element with an OHM meter,

OR a good visual inspection may notice that it is broken.

If it's not a bad Broil Element, then most likely, the Oven Controller is bad
