Dacor dual oven. Bottom not heating or broiling???

i have a Dacor dual oven, installed in about 2001 by the previous owner. Tonight the lower oven is not heating. Pre heat says 135 but no heat at the element or broiler when set to broil. Top oven works fine.

Can anyone offer some guidance as to a troubleshoot sequence? Al help is appreciated.

Best

Bryan

There are two elements in the oven. If one wasn't working.... I'd say it was bad.
When both elements aren't working..... it's typically a control board issue.

You can post the model number for more detailed help.

i think it was the high limit switch. I pulled the cover and reset the switch and now it is heating. Iíll report back if problems persist.

Many ovens have high limit thermal switches. They are usually one shot. The blow open on an overheat.
The other style is self resetting. Once the oven cools down.... it resets automatically. Yours looks to be self resetting.

I don't remember ever seeing any user resettable ones before.
