The problem is gonna be the touch board, the lock control key is probably half stuck and is making contact on occasion by itself:

will be right with you I am double checking info on this unit at the manufacturer site , give me just a few more minutes.
Ok before you bother ordering that board, according to dacor the most common problem is :
check for a foreign material between the Touch Pad and the Contact Board. Examples of foreign material include grease, cooking residue, moisture, or residue from cleaning agents. Circuit board cleaner or equivalent (available from electronic supply stores) should be used to clean the keypad assembly.
If you find that the touch pad has moisture present replace it.
I would definitely look at that first because the touch pad is a 16.00 part:
listed as #3 here - click here
they state that in most cases that is the issue not the touch board.
sounds good thanks.
I have never actually personally repaired that model before I could not find the repair method in the service manual for that unit, so to help you get this done properly I am going to opt out of the question so another tech on the site that has hands on experience with this model can help you.
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If it will unlo9ck and work fine but actuates by itself, let's try something. Use a hair dryer to heat the touch board until quite warm and all of the area around it. Keep it warm for several minutes. Also, use alcohol to clean the area of the buttons on the glass. That uses a capacitive touch and can have issues with grease and other "gunk" on the glass. Does the behavior change at all?
At this point, I would agree. The site below will allow you to return the board if it fails to correct the issue, even after installing, for up to a year! That will negate all risk of being out for parts you may not need!
Yep! They have an amazing return policy!
You bet, thank you!
Sounds good, thank you!
