Customer Question

My Dacor range RSD30S often gives me F1 error code with the beeping. As long as the oven is on it's OK. When off the F1 sometimes comes on immediately and sometimes it stays off for days. i don't want to replace the $700 control board, is there anything else I can do? Thanks W
JA: Sometimes appliance issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Appliance Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Anything else I can tell the Appliance Technician before I connect you two?
Customer: No thanks.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and connect you two.
