The digital display on my 15-year old Dacor electric wall oven

Resolved Question:

The digital display on my 15-year old Dacor electric wall oven just started blinking, showing 88:88, and none of the controls work. Tried unplugging and plugging back in - no change.

W305 is the model no.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Okay the 88:88 means the digital display has failed for the clock itself as it's called, they have a retrofit kit for this that you need to order and replace, this is a common failure on these the problem is the part is no longer available, the part number is, 86600B and if you search the web you may find one but I've checked several of my suppliers and they all come up with the same thing,

Circuit Board or Timer

Item #756849 (OEM Part)

Clock retrofit replacement; w305b (black)

Manufacturer Number 86600B

This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source for the part


but I have found if you search enough on the Internet sometimes you can locate these some supplies still have them in stock but I'm not sure where so you will need some research done to locate one, if that doesn't work and you can't find one in your only other choice would be replace the oven or here's a link to a place that rebuilds these you can call them and see what they can do for you, I hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
