Thermador SM272 - Oven not heating after self clean cycle
My oven was working fine till I ran the self clean cycle. Since then the owvn does not seem to heat up. I have someone comign to look at it this evening. I want to make sure I know the areas they should be looking at. What could be the issue?
Yesterday I had this very unhelpful repairman that said the computer is not working but could not explain how he deduced that by just looking at the oven and the schematic and not chekcing anything out. He actually got upset when I asked him how he knew it was the computer....incredible!
After self cleaning my oven won't come on

very common/ never use self clean just before holiday you may be eating out .. after the clean cycle or during it may have blower the hi limit ( on the back of oven.. this is a one time and you must replace it with same tempt .. ( remove oven set it on small table of chair / cable is short. remove thermo and replace . reinstall and do some baking mm
The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.
Your repairman might be right but I would have checked the main heating element first for this reason:
The self-clean cycle uses that same element as you need for the oven but is allowed to rise to a much higher temperature (~ 900-950 degrees) during the cleaning cycle and it may have self-destructed.
Since your problem started after the cleaning cycle, I would have checked the element for continuity first.
I own a similar range. As you can imagine I was dismayed to find out that my $6000 heap can't run a clean cycle, unless of course you just don't want to use your oven again. let me give you a tip something WILL break on your oven every time you use the self cleaning "feature".
The first time I used the self cleaning feature the board burnt up, I asumed hat this was a fluke. The second time the pvertemp sensor burnt out. The next few times that I was brave enough to try it the overtemp sensor triggered this is what I hope has gone wrong with yours since while it's not easy or convenient to fix it is free. If you pull out your range and remove the backsplash and then the rear panel there should be a breaker with a button you can push to reset. On mine it is located near the top of the oven compartment on the left side near the middle. I hope that works for you and you will soon learn as I have after doing this a few times that the self cleaning cycle is just not worth it. It willdo this every time and it really is just easier to use easy off and clean the oven by hand. I realize that is not what you had in mind doing when you bought a luxury Item like a 36" thermador range, but I hope you don't have to hate yours as much as I hate mine.
