Maintaining a proper cooking temperature in your oven is critical to any recipe that requires baking or broiling. A Dacor wall oven that suddenly begins producing undercooked or overcooked food is a big problem, even for the most attentive cook. Here are several troubleshooting tips to help you solve a heating problem in your wall oven.
Wall ovens are heated by a bake element at the bottom and a broiler element at the top. Unplug the oven and examine the length of both elements for damage. Next, make sure the heating elements haven't come unwired at the back of the oven. To confirm proper functioning, uninstall the elements and use a multimeter device to test for a broken circuit.
The electronic oven control board regulates oven heating and controls cooking time. The oven control board and the LCD control panel are typically integrated into one unit. Make sure the control panel lights up when the oven is plugged in and the controls and settings work properly. Use the control panel to turn on the heat and then confirm the oven elements respond. If needed, replacement control boards are available for wall oven repair.
If the oven elements and control board are working properly, the oven control thermostat may need to be replaced. The thermostat is one of the most important wall oven parts because it controls the oven elements to maintain consistent internal temperatures. A faulty or inaccurate thermostat produces poorly cooked food. Uninstall the thermostat and use a multimeter to confirm proper functioning.
