The newer Dacor ovens require a password in order to adjust their temperature offset to calibrate the oven temperature.  You will need to enter the diagnostics mode, enter a password and calibrate the temperature for each function (bake, broil, convection, etc…).

To Entering Calibration Mode:

2)    Using the number keypad enter 6428 then press the Start key.

DCS ovens use electronic spark re-ignition.  Fisher Paykel makes these ovens and they have a good reputation.  Regardless, often times the igniter will continue to click.  Several things can cause the electrodes on a DCS oven to continue to click which it shouldn’t be sparking.  The most common issue being that the cook top was just cleaned.  When the electrodes on a DCS oven or cook top get wet it will cause these devices to short and become defective.  The spark module thinks the switch is calling for spark.

There are two things you can do to stop the clicking sound.  First, flip the breaker off for several hours, when the electrodes are dryed out they will stop clicking.  The second thing to do is to speed up the process by using a blow dryer on the electrode to speed up the drying process.
