Do you here a click when the bake cycle starts?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Do not hear click.
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 7 years ago.
It does start the cycle yes? what is the temperature it starts at 135?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes - cycle starts and displays shows 135 deg and pre-heat
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 7 years ago.

If the broil works and it starts the bake cycle but there is no click that means the relay on the board is not closing. I would have a tech out to confirm the board. It is fairly expensive and don't want to guess wrong. A live test of the board need to be done to confirm the relay is getting power and not closing.

Thank you.

Thanks for your advice. I'm a first time user and I like this service. I value your opinion and will call local service people and make sure I get soneone familiar with Dacor circuit boards. I'll give them a "heads-up" thats its probably the relay. I accept your answer.
