Before You Begin
Important Notes to the Owner
• Electrical and gas equipment with moving parts can be
dangerous. Read and follow closely the Important Safety
Instructions section (Pgs. 8 – 11) to minimize risk of property damage, personal injury, and death.
• For best results, maintain the range as instructed in this
manual.
• Keep this manual handy for personal and professional
reference.
• Wipe down the range's exterior surfaces before its first
use. Then, ventilate the kitchen well, remove the accessories from the oven chamber, and set the oven to bake at
400°F (204°C) for 1 hour. There will be a distinct odor; this
is normal.
Energy-Saving Tips
• During cooking, the oven door should be closed except when you turn food. Leaving the door closed also
maintains oven temperature, which saves energy.
• If cooking longer than 30 minutes, you can switch the oven off 5-10 minutes before the cooking is done. The
residual heat finishes cooking the food.
• Plan oven use to avoid turning the oven off between cooking tasks.
• When possible, cook multiple items simultaneously.
About the Oven Vent
• The oven vent is above the oven chamber and can be
seen when you open the door. When the door is closed,
air is drawn in through a vent at the bottom of the door,
up through the door, out a corresponding vent in the top
of the door through the vent you see at left, and into the
cooktop to cool internal components.
• Proper air circulation promotes burner combustion problems and ensures good performance. Do not cover/block
any part of the oven's vent system.
• When the oven is in use, be cautious near its door. Steam
and hot air emitted through the vent system can burn
skin and melt certain items.

Important Safety Instructions
Use-and-Care Safety Instructions, cont.
Read these instructions thoroughly to reduce the risk of property damage, fire, personal injury, and death, and
to ensure proper installation.
Gas Safety
If you smell gas:
• close the range's gas-supply valve and evacuate the building
• do not use a flame or sparking device (e.g., match, butane lighter or clicker, arc lighter)
• do not turn on any gas or electric appliances
• do not plug in a power cord or touch an electrical switch
• do not use any phone in your building
• immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor's home, and follow the supplier’s directions (if unable to
reach the gas supplier, call the fire department).
Checking For Gas Leaks
Do not use a flame to check for leaks. With a brush, spread a soap-and-water solution around the area in question. If there is a gas leak, small bubbles will appear in the solution. If unsure, call for professional help.
Electrical and Grounding Safety
• Do not use an adapter or extension cord.
• Do not use a damaged plug, cord, or loose power outlet, and do not alter the plug, cord, or outlet.
• Do not put a fuse in a neutral or ground circuit.

Important Safety Instructions
Use-and-Care Safety Instructions, cont.
Read these instructions thoroughly to reduce the risk of property damage, fire, personal injury, and death, and
to ensure proper installation.
Cooktop Safety
• Burners should only be on when in use and should never be unattended.
• Do not line the grates or any part of the cooktop with foil.
• Before turning on a burner, ensure its components are properly seated.
• If a burner ignites but does not stay lit, turn it off, wait 5 minutes for the gas to dissipate, and retry.
• When setting a burner to simmer, turn the knob slowly; ensure the burner stays lit.
• Place only cookware on the cooktop.
• Do not drag cookware across the grates; lift to reposition cookware.
• Do not drop cookware on the grates.
• Do not use rough-bottomed cookware.
• Food should only be flamed under an active ventilation hood.
• Do not let burner flames extend beyond the base of the cookware.
• When finished cooking, turn off the burner before removing the cookware.
• Burners should be off and all surfaces cool before disassembling cooktop components.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils – Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for rangetop service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.
• Do not pour water or other liquids on the cooktop.
• After cleaning cooktop components, dry them thoroughly before reassembly.
• Use Proper Pan Size – This appliance is equipped with one or more surface units of different size. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of undersized
utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units – To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil,
the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent
surface units.
• Fry with minimal oil, heat the oil slowly, and watch as it heats; stand at a safe distance, and monitor the oil
constantly; if combining oils, mix them before heating.
• Know the oil's smoke point, and use a deep-fry thermometer to monitor the oil's temperature.
• Do not fry frozen, icy, or overly cold food.
• Let the oil cool to room temperature before moving the cookware.
• Do not turn a burner-control knob past the ignition point until the burner is lit.
• Do not light a burner with a match or other open flame.
• Do not touch any part of a burner while the igniter is sparking.
• If a burner does not ignite within 4 seconds, or if the flame goes after ignition, turn the burner off, open a
window, wait at least 5 minutes for the gas to dissipate, then try igniting the burner.
• In case of a burn injury:
–– Immerse the scalded area in cool water for at least 10 minutes, then cover with a clean, dry cloth.
–– Do not apply creams, oils, or lotions.
–– Seek medical attention for severe burns.

Operating the Cooktop
Assembling the Burners
Assembling a Standard Burner
1. Place the burner ring so its base fits within the ridge
around the burner head, and rotate the ring until it
drops into place.
2. Place the burner cap so the ridge on the bottom of the
cap fits over the perimeter of the ring.
Assembling a SimmerSearTM Burner
1. Place the burner head so its locating tab is in the
base’s keyed hole.
2. Place the burner ring so the its tabs fit into the slots in
the head.
3. Place the burner cap so the ridge on the bottom of the
cap fits over the perimeter of the ring.
• After assembly, always test the burners for proper function. Improperly assembled parts cause faulty ignition and
uneven flames.
• If the flame is excessively yellow, shut off the burner, and
let it cool. Adjust the caps, and reignite the burner. A good
flame is blue and consistent around the burner.
Placing the Cooktop Grates
The grates are identical, so you can place them in the left, center, or right position but always with the short
side toward the front/rear of the cooktop.
For ease of placement, each grate has rubber-tipped feet that fit in "dimples" formed into the cooktop spill tray.
1. With two hands, grasp a grate with the short sides
oriented at the front and rear of the cooktop.
2. Gently set the grate on the cooktop so the grate's feet
rest in their corresponding dimples in the spill tray.
3. Repeat Step 2 for the remaining grate(s).

English
Operating the Cooktop
Using the Griddle
• Before using the griddle for the first time, wash it in hot, soapy water, then rinse, and let it dry fully.
• For best results, preheat the griddle for 10 minutes.
• Orient the griddle's grease trap at the rear of the cooktop.
1. With all burners off and the range cool to the touch, place the griddle on the cooktop's center-front/rear
grates. (30" models: Place the griddle on the right-front/rear burners.)
–– The specified burners are the same size, which ensures even cooking front and rear.
–– Fit the tabs on the bottom of the feet into the inside corners of the grate. Correctly installed, the griddle
rests securely about 1/2” above the grate. Slight rocking is normal.
HDPRS
48" model shown
2. Push-turn the center-front burner knob
to the Ignite (flame) setting.
The burner ignites.
3. Adjust the knob to MAX GRIDDLE (or
lower if desired).
To avoid harming the griddle, do not set
the burner higher than MAX GRIDDLE.
4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the center-rear
burner.
Avoid using metal utensils on the surface
because they can scratch the non-stick
coating.
Clean the griddle after each use. (See Pg.
35 for instructions.)

Operating the Cooktop
Before Using the Cooktop
• A normal flame is steady and blue. Foreign matter in the gas line, especially a new line, may cause an orange flame that disappears with use. Yellow-tipped flames are normal when using LP gas.
• See Page 14 for the heat ranges of the different burners.
• Food cooks just as quickly at a gentle boil as at a vigorous boil. Maintain a gentle boil to conserve energy
and food moisture/flavor/nutrients.
• Use a low or medium flame when using poor-heat-conducting cookware (glass, ceramic, cast iron). Set the
flame to cover 1/3 of the cookware diameter to ensure even heating and reduce the risk of burning the food.
• Dacor’s SimmerSear feature allows you precision control of the flame on the SimmerSear burner, from low
to high heat.
Selecting the Cookware
• For overall safety and best performance, select the correct cooking utensil for the food being cooked. Improper cookware will not cook evenly and efficiently.
• Use well-balanced cookware with flat, smooth bottoms and snug lids.

Before Cooking
• Before its first use, turn the oven on for 1 hour at 500°F to burn off manufacturing residueand remove undesirable odors that the oven would otherwise emit the first few times it is used.
• When baking/roasting, the oven preheats automatically. Preheating time varies with the temperature setting and your home’s type of electrical supply. Preheating cannot be used for broiling.
To avoid marring the oven’s porcelain finish, quickly wipe up acidic foods (e.g., citrus, tomato, pineapple).
Positioning the Oven Racks
You may use either rack type on any level inside the ove.
Handle the racks only when the oven is cool. If you must reposition a rack when the oven is hot, use potholders.
Inserting a Standard Oven Rack
1. Grasp the handle area at front of the rack, and slide the
rack onto the left-/right-side supports.
2. Begin sliding the rack in, then lift up so the safety notches
clear the ends of the rack supports.
3. With both hands, push the rack all the way in.
Removing a Standard Oven Rack
1. Grasp the handle area at front of the rack, and pull gently
until the rack stops at the safety notches.
2. Lift the front of the rack 6 inches to clear the safety notches, and pull the rack completely out.
22
English
Operating the Oven
Positioning the Oven Racks, cont.
The oven comes with a set of Dacor GlideRack oven racks. These racks can be pulled out further than a standard rack and still support pots and pans or an optional Dacor baking stone.
Inserting a GlideRackTM Oven Rack
1. Align the left and right safety clips on the back of the rack
guides with the rack supports (see left).
You can insert the rack with the guides extended or retracted.
2. Push the rack in, lifting the front safety clips over the front
of the oven-rack supports.
3. Push the rack all the way in.
4. Grasp the rack handle, and pull.
The safety clips keep the rack from coming off the guides.
Removing a GlideRackTM Oven Rack
1. Grasp the front of the rack near each side, and pull gently
until the rack stops.
2. Lift until the front safety clips just clear the front of the
rack supports, and pull the rack completely out.
Jiggling the rack side to side as you pull eases removal.
Running A Cook Cycle
This procedure includes selecting a cook mode, preheating the oven, inserting the food, and turning off the oven.
1. Tap a cook mode. (Double ovens: Tap the mode under LEFT OVEN or RIGHT OVEN.)
The preset temperature appears on the display with icons for the cook mode. (See Pg. 20 for details about
cook modes).
2. (To cook at the preset temp) Tap START/CONTINUE. (To change the temp) On the numeric pad, tap a temperature (ex. 4-2-5), then tap START/CONTINUE.
• Available temps range from 100°F – 555°F (37°C – 291°C). Suggested broil temp is 555°F. Double ovens
have one START key (below the display) for both ovens.
• When using Pure Convection or a bake or roast mode: PRE- (Preheating) and the current oven temp
appear on the display until the oven reaches the set temperature (15 – 20 min), then the chime sounds,
and PRE- disappears.
3. When the preheat chime sounds, carefully put your food in the oven.
Putting food in the oven during preheating overcooks the food.
4. When finished cooking, tap CANCEL/SECURE. (Double ovens: Tap CANCEL/SECURE for the oven in use.)

Description
•
•
•
•
Convection fan with bottom heat source; for single-rack cooking in a deep pan.
Best for fruit crisps, custard pies, double-crusted fruit pies, quiche, yeast bread, and popovers.
Best for food baked in a deep ceramic dish or clay pot.
Most items require browning on top and bottom.
• Convection fan with top heat source; for food that does not need to be turned (e.g., fish, garlic bread, thinner
cuts of meat).
• See Broil (below) for cooking tips.
• Convection fan only; for multi-rack baking.
–– Typically, for two racks, cook on Levels 3 and 5 (counting from bottom up); for three racks, use Levels 2, 4, 6.
–– You may need to lengthen single-rack cook times for multi-rack baking due to greater mass of food in oven.
• Uniform air circulation allows use of more oven space.
• For single- and multi-rack preparation of complete meals.
• Many foods (e.g., pizza, cake, cookies, rolls, frozen dinners) can be cooked on multiple racks.
• Good for whole roasted duck, lamb shoulder, and short leg of lamb.
Convection fan with top and bottom heat sources; for rib roasts, whole turkeys and chickens, et al.
Bottom heat source; for single-rack cooking of common, basic recipes. Most cook times reflect Bake mode.
• Follow recipe cook time and temperature; use oven timers to set cook time.
• Avoid opening oven door to check progress.
• Check food at shortest recommended cook time. (Cake is done if a toothpick poked in center emerges clean.)
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Top heat source; for single-rack cooking of small amounts of food, smaller cuts of meat, or toasting bread.
To reduce risk of overcooking, use rack Levels 1 – 4; results depend on the rack level and type of food broiled.
Some smoke is normal and necessary for a broiled flavor.
Set the timer when broiling.
Use a grill over a broil pan so fat/grease drains, reducing spatter, excess smoke, and flare-ups.
Start with a room-temp broil pan for even cooking.
Do not use a fork or knife to turn/remove meat; doing so lets natural juices escape, drying the meat.
Broil meat just over half the specified time before seasoning and turning; season again just before removal.
Lightly grease broiler grill to prevent sticking; to ease cleaning, remove broiler pan and grill with the meat.
Changing the Cook Mode While Cooking
You can change the cook mode without interrupting the cook cycle.
⁕⁕ On the control panel, tap the new cook mode, then tap START/CONTINUE.
(Double ovens) Be sure the cook mode key you tap is for the oven you are using.

COOK MODE AND COOKWARE
Subject
Tip
Bake,
Convection
Bake, Pure
Convection
• Do not open the oven door frequently; check doneness through the door window when possible.
• Use a timer to time baking functions.
• Check doneness at the shortest suggested cook time; for cake/brownies, a wooden toothpick/skewer poked
through the center should emerge clean.
• For best results, measure ingredients carefully and follow proven recipes.
Convection
Bake
• This mode cooks most foods at lower temperatures for shorter periods of time, while producing superior results.
• Typically, you can reduce temp by 25°F and cook for 10% less time; baked goods have golden-brown crusts with
flaky textures, and meats have crispy exteriors with succulent juices sealed inside.
• Some conventional recipes, especially homemade, may need testing and adjusting when converting to convection baking; prepare a proven conventional recipe using the above convection time/temp guidelines; if the
results are unsatisfactory, adjust one variable (e.g., cook time, rack level, temperature), and repeat the test; if
needed, adjust one more variable, continuing this method until you achieve satisfactory results.
Broil
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always set a timer when broiling.
For even cooking, start with a room-temperature broil pan.
Use tongs or spatula to turn/remove meats; piercing meat lets juices escape, leading to less desirable results.
Broil first side for just over half suggested time, then season and turn; season second side just before removal.
Lightly grease broiler grill; excess grease causes excessive smoke.
To ease cleanup, remove broil pan and grill with food; discard grease, and soak cookware until ready to clean.
Roast
• Dacor’s optional roasting pan offers excellent results.
• Dacor’s optional “V” shaped rack (placed in the roast pan) allow air circulation around food.
• Insert temperature probe halfway into center of thickest part of meat; (poultry) Insert probe between body and leg
into thickest part of inner thigh; for accurate readings, probe should not touch bone/fat/gristle; check meat temp
2/3 into suggested roast time; after reading probe once, insert it 1/2" further into meat, and take another reading; if
second reading is lower, keep cooking.
• Let roast stand 15 – 20 min's after removal to ease carving.
• Roast times vary with size/shape/quality of meats and poultry; less tender cuts are best prepared in Bake mode
and may need moist-cooking techniques; follow your favorite cookbook recipes.
Bakeware
• Dacor full-sized cookie sheets take best advantage of rack space; (see Pg. 4, Customer Assurance info to order).
For best results, use recipe's suggested pan size/type.
• For best results, cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be baked in bright, reflective pans.
• Use medium-gauge-aluminum baking sheets when preparing cookies, biscuits, and cream puffs.
• Bake most frozen foods in their original foil containers on a cookie sheet. Follow package directions.
• Glass bakeware: Reduce recipe temperature by 25°F (except for pies or yeast breads).
• Follow standard recipe bake time for pies and yeast breads.
• Warped, dented, stainless-steel, and tin-coated pans do not give uniform baking results.
• Place pans carefully on the oven racks with long sides running left to right.
Multi-Rack
Baking
• Standard Bake mode is best for multi-rack baking. Many foods (e.g., pizza, cake, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls,
and frozen prepared foods can be cooked on two or three racks simultaneously.
• Typically, when baking on two racks, choose from Levels 2, 4, and 6.
• When adapting a single-rack recipe to multi-rack baking, cook times may be longer due to greater volume of food.
The higher the altitude, the longer foods take
to cook, so some recipes need adjusting. (Usually, rising baked goods need no adjustment,
but letting the dough rise twice before the
High-Altitude
final pan rise develops better flavor. Try the
Baking
adjustments at right. Note the changes that
work best, and mark your recipes accordingly.
You may also consult a cookbook on high-altitude cooking for specific recommendations.

Using Time-Delay Cooking
About Time-Delay Cooking
• You can set the oven to turn itself on/off.
• Time-delay can be used for all but Broil and Convection Broil modes.
• You can use the timers while using time-delay cooking.
• You can cancel a time-delay cycle any time by tapping CANCEL/SECURE.
• Time-delay cooking cannot be used if Sabbath mode is active.
• When the oven is in Time-Delay mode, you can tap:
–– CLOCK to view the time
–– START TIME to view the set cook-start time
–– STOP TIME to view the set cook-stop time
–– COOK TIME to view the cook-duration time.
Food safety is a critical consideration in time-delay cooking. To avoid food-related problems:
• Do not use foods that will spoil before the oven turns on (e.g., eggs, dairy products, cream soups, meat).
• Do not leave food in an inactive oven. Bacteria develops when the temperature drops below 140°F (60°C).
• For long-term delay starts, place only very cold or frozen food in the oven. (Most unfrozen foods should rest
in the oven no more than two hours before cooking begins.)
Using the Time-Delay-Cooking Keys
• START TIME: The time of day when the oven starts cooking.
• COOK TIME: The amount of time the oven cooks before entering Hold mode.
• STOP TIME: The time of day when the oven turns off and enters Hold mode.
About Hold Mode
• If you use COOK TIME or STOP TIME, the oven enters Hold mode (HLd appears on the display) when it
reaches the end of the set cook time. Oven temperature "holds" at 150°F (66°C) for 2 hours.
• Touch CANCEL/SECURE to turn the oven completely off.
• Do not leave foods in the oven after Hold mode turns off.
When you set two of the time-delay keys, the oven automatically calculates the third time. There are three
ways to use these keys:
• Tap START TIME, and set a time for the oven to turn on, then tap COOK TIME or STOP TIME, and set a time
for the oven to turn off.
• Set START TIME only, then turn the oven off manually when you are done cooking.
• Turn the oven on manually, then tap COOK TIME or STOP TIME, and set a time for the oven to turn off.

Operating the Oven
Using Time-Delay Cooking, cont.
Setting a Time-Delay-Cooking Cycle
1. Adjust the racks as needed, and place the food in the oven.
2. Select a cook mode (except BROIL or CONVECTION BROIL).
3. Enter a cook temperature.
If you want the oven to turn on immediately and turn off automatically later, skip to Step 6.
4. Tap START TIME, and enter the time of day you want cooking to start. (Ex: 12:35, tap 1-2-3-5. You may enter a
time up to 22 hr 59 min beyond the present time.)
5. Tap # to select AM or PM.
If you want to set a stop time or a cook time, proceed with Step 6; otherwise, skip to Step 7.
6. Tap either COOK TIME or STOP TIME.
COOK TIME sets the amount of time the oven will cook; STOP TIME sets the time of day when the oven will
stop cooking. Whichever key you select, the result is the same.
Pre-heating is unavailable for time-delay cooking. The time needed to reach the cooking temperature must be
added to the cook time, which increases with the cooking temperature and amount of food.
7. Tap START.
If you set a cook time or a stop time, the oven cooks until the set time, and enters Hold mode.
Using the Meat-Temperature Probe
The doneness of bulky meats (e.g., roasts, whole turkey and chicken) is best determined by taking the internal
temperature. The oven's temperature probe lets you cook food to the exact desired temperature. The probe
registers temperatures from 100 – 200°F (38 – 93°C).
•
•
•
•
•
To avoid injuries, use hot pads or oven mitts to handle the probe when the oven is hot.
Always grasp the probe by its handle. (Pulling on the cable could damage the probe.)
Only insert the skewer into fully thawed food.
Always remove the probe from the oven after use.
Do not use a 3rd-party probe; you risk damaging the probe and the oven.
• The probe does not work in Broil and Sabbath modes. If you plug in the probe when in these modes, the
probe icon blinks, indicating an error.
• If you detach the probe after tapping PROBE, the probe icon blinks, and OPn appears on the display.
• If you tap Probe but do not plug in the probe, the mode cancels itself after 30 seconds.
• Probe mode takes precedence over time-delay cooking. The oven keeps cooking until the meat's internal
temp reaches the selected probe temp regardless of the stop time/cook time, then enters Hold mode.

Adjusting the Oven-Temperature Offset
The oven-temp offset is the factory-calibrated heat level at which a given cook mode cooks food; cook times
may vary from your previous oven. If cooking results on this oven differ from those of your previous oven, you
can adjust the oven-temp offset.
To ensure proper operation, do not adjust the meat-temperature probe or self-clean offset temperatures.
Do not measure oven-chamber temperature with a thermometer. Opening the door compromises the reading,
and the temperature varies as heating elements cycle on and off.

Using Self-Clean Mode
About Self-Clean Mode
• For best results, clean the oven chamber regularly. Self-cleaning, which takes about 2 1/2 hours, heats the
oven to very high temperatures to burn off surface deposits in the oven chamber.
• Smoke from the oven chamber is normal during the first few self-clean cycles. The oven also normally
makes popping sounds during self-cleaning due to metal expanding/contracting.
• Self-clean mode will not function if the meat-temperature probe is connected; the probe icon blinks, reminding you to remove the probe.
• For less smoke and more efficient self-cleaning, wipe up cooking residue with a damp cloth beforehand.
• Exterior range surfaces will be very hot during self-cleaning.
• Remove all accessories and foreign items from the oven chamber during self-cleaning.
Before Self-Cleaning the Oven
• 48" range: You can self-clean one oven at a time; when one oven is in self-clean mode, the other is unusable.
• The oven light is inactive during self-cleaning.
• Self-cleaning will not work if the meat-temperature probe is connected. (If you try to start self-cleaning and
the probe is connected, the control panel probe icon blinks to alert you to remove the probe.)
1. Remove racks, convection filter, cookware, temp probe, and any other foreign items from the oven.
2. Wipe the surfaces around the door gasket with a vinegar-water solution, then wipe the surfaces dry. (Clean
heavily soiled areas with a plastic scouring pad.)
3. Gently clean the door gasket (see Pg. 39).
Self-Cleaning the Oven
1. Ventilate the kitchen well to help remove odors during self-clean cycle.
2. Shut the oven door, and tap SELF CLEAN.
3. Tap START/CONTINUE.
–– The cleaning icon ( ) appears on the display.
–– The lock icon ( ) appears, indicating that the oven door cannot be opened. The oven door locks automatically to prevent personal injury from the high temperature generated during self-cleaning. If the
door is ajar, an error message appears on the display. To clear the error, touch CANCEL/SECURE, wait 1
minute, and close the door. When the error clears, restart the process at Step 2.
–– ON appears on the display, indicating that the oven's heating elements are on.
• To stop self-cleaning: Tap CANCEL/SECURE. The oven door remains locked until the oven chamber has
cooled sufficiently. (The lock symbol disappears from the display). The oven may still be hot, so be cautious.

• When self-cleaning is done:
–– the door latch releases when the oven chamber has cooled sufficiently. The cleaning icon, lock icon, and
ON indicator disappear from the display. The oven is still hot.
–– reinstall the convection filter before using the oven.
–– a powdery residue normally coats the oven floor after self-cleaning. When the oven is cool, wipe the
residue with a damp cloth or sponge; run another cycle as needed to remove any residue that cannot be
wiped away with a cloth.
Setting Delayed Self-Cleaning

Maintaining the Range
Steam-Cleaning the Oven
This is a convenient way to clean light soil from the oven. (Double ovens: Both ovens may be steam cleaned at
once.) Run a steam-clean cycle when you see soil accumulating in the oven chamber.
• To avoid steam burns, do not pour water into a hot oven.
• Do not touch the water in the oven chamber immediately after steam-cleaning.
1. Remove the racks and all foreign items from the oven chamber.
2. In the cool oven chamber, pour 11/2 cups water (preferably distilled) into the recess in the floor.
For slightly heavier buildup, mix the water with a teaspoon of dish soap, then pour.
3. Fold a dish towel in half lengthwise, and lay it along the oven-chamber floor so the towel’s front edge overhangs the front between the door and door gasket (to any water that seeps out).
4. Close the oven door, and tap BAKE.
5. Set the oven no higher than 185°F (85°C), and tap START/CONTINUE.
6. Set the timer (see Pg. 28) to 20 minutes.
7. When time is up, tap CANCEL/SECURE, and 10 minutes later, open the door.
(Stand aside to let steam billow out safely; water will be on the oven walls and floor.)
8. With a soapy sponge:
a. wipe the interior door glass
b. carefully wipe up the water in the oven chamber.
c. wipe the oven chamber until all surfaces are clean. (Remove any lime with a vinegar-soaked cloth.)
9. Dry all interior surfaces with paper towels, and leave the door ajar to let moist air escape.
Cleaning the Oven Accessories
Cleaning the Convection Filter
After cleaning the convection filter and before using the oven, re-install the filter for proper oven function and
safety from fan blades. Take care not to mar the oven porcelain when removing/reinstalling the filter.
The convection filter is on the oven’s rear wall. Clean the
filter regularly so air circulates freely within the oven and the
convection modes work properly.
1. When the oven is cool, grasp the filter around the edges,
and gently push up with your thumb to release the clips.
2. Soak the filter in hot, soapy water.
3. Rinse the filter under the tap, and dry it fully.
4. With the clips parallel with and facing the crossbar, center
the filter over the fan hole, and carefully push down, hooking the clips onto the crossbar.

Maintaining the Range
Cleaning the Oven Accessories, cont.
Cleaning the Oven-Door Gasket
This gasket helps trap hot air in the oven by sealing the seam around the front of the oven chamber when the
door is closed. The gasket needs occasional cleaning to remove cooking residue that may compromise the seal
and reduce cooking efficiency.
• Be extremely careful in cleaning the fragile gasket to avoid compromising its ability to form a tight seal
around the front of the oven chamber.
• Do not rub, scrub, or pinch the gasket; do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners and cleaning tools.
1. Dab the door gasket with a soft cloth moistened with a mild-soap and water solution.
2. Rinse the gasket with a soft cloth moistened with clean water.
Cleaning the Oven-Rack Supports
• The oven-rack supports are screwed to the oven walls and should not be removed for cleaning.
• The supports will be cleaned during self-cleaning. Wipe them as you would the oven-chamber walls after a
self-cleaning cycle. (See Using Self-Clean Mode, Pg. 36.)
Cleaning the Oven Racks
• Do not self-clean the oven racks. Self-cleaning discolors the racks and makes them hard to slide.
• You may immerse a standard oven rack in water; immersing a GlideRack in water, however, can foul the
glide mechanism. Carefully wipe a GlideRack mechanism with a damp cloth.
• For heavy soil, use a scouring pad. (Clean with soap and water, or a solution of 1/2 cup of ammonia to 1 gallon
of water.)
Cleaning the Meat-Temperature Probe
The probe has silicone handles, a wire cable, a plug, and a stainless-steel skewer.
Do not immerse the probe in water. Doing so will likely damage the probe's electronic circuitry.
1.

Clean the skewer with a plastic scouring pad and hot, soapy water.
Gently wipe the cable with a cloth moistened with soapy water.
Wipe the handles and plug with a soft sponge soaked with warm, soapy water.
Carefully wipe soap with a damp cloth, keeping water away from the probe's electrical circuitry.
Thoroughly dry all parts of the probe with a clean, soft cloth.
Cleaning the Oven-Light Lens
1. Softly rub the oven-light lens with the plastic-scrubber side of a sponge moistened with warm, soapy water.
2. With a clean, soft cloth moistened with clean water, rinse the lens.
3. With a soft, lint-free cloth, fully dry the lens.

Maintaining the Range
Replacing the Oven Lights
If no lights work, see Troubleshooting, Pg. 42, before replacing them.
• To prevent electric shock, turn off power to the oven, and ensure the oven and bulbs are cool.
• Use the oven only with the lens covers installed. The covers protect the bulbs from high temperatures and
mechanical shock.
• Replacing the lens cover without lining up the cutout with the light socket will damage the light fixture.
• Do not use a screwdriver to remove the lens.
• Do not touch the replacement halogen bulb with bare fingers. Hand oil shortens the life of the bulb.
• Replace the light bulb only with Dacor bulb PN 100429, 12V 20W. (See Pg. 4 for Dacor Customer Assurance
contact information.)
1. Turn off power to the oven at the circuit breaker/fuse box.
2. Supporting the lens from below, gently pry it loose with a
table knife, and pull the lens cover straight out.
3. Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.
4. Wearing a glove, take the new bulb, and insert it in the
socket.
5. In reinstalling the lens cover, line up the cutout on the
inside rim with the light socket, and gently press it into
place.
6. Return power to the oven, and reset the clock (Pg. 21).
