We have an oolder dacor range (Modeo ERD30) Thats been converted

Resolved Question:

We have an oolder dacor range (Modeo ERD30) Thats been converted to propane.

Yesterday, we had an "8" appear on the message screen which according to our manual seems to be something on the door latch. The message apparently shut down all of the controls. We can't use the clock, timer, or even controls. What do we need to do about the "8" and how do we turn the controls back on.

SubZero_Wolf Expert :

Hello, I can help you with this. You have a failure of one of the switches on the door lock.

SubZero_Wolf Expert :

The best thing to do is turn the unit off and back on and before the F8 appears start the self clean cycle. Check and see if the latch moves. Also you can try and jiggle the latch left and then right quickly. If neither thing works than you will have to order the door latch. Let me know if you end up needing the door latch and I can look it up for you. Thanks ,Sam
