DCS Range trouble--any hints?
We just got a DCS range...if it's possible to return it, I need to do it tomorrow (7 days); naturally that's a 20% restock fee plus I'm sure we pay un-installers & plumbers to disconnect & everything, so out around $1000+ for this experiment. Not a good thing.
Problems we're having:
The fan that pulls air out of the oven is really loud--much much louder than we'd expected. We can hear it two rooms away with the door closed. Is this right? It comes on either when the oven has been turned off OR when it's been running for a bit--though I don't understand why it wants to remove air from the oven I want to be hot. The fan is so strong it can be felt on the other side of the 54" aisle. It's got to be cooling down pots on the stove to have that much air blowing around.
The other problem we see is with the simmer burners. One burner won't stay on simmer--it turns itself on and off--unless one of the other burners is on. The oven kicking on (as it does when running) turns the simmer burner off momentarily as well.
Is this all common/normal, or do we have a lemon, or what? We bought the range partly on recommendations we read here, didn't see anything like this, alas...DCS 30" all gas, no self-clean oven.
