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

    I had the same problem.. once the self clean was used, the oven now does not heat to appropriate temp. I haven't called for service yet. Let me know how it gets resolved!

    I ran the self cleaning cycle on my 30 inch range and now the oven doesn't heat up. All the lights come on and the blower but no heat. It is barely a year old and out of warranty.

SOURCE: After running self cleaning cycle, oven won't heat.

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.

Usually the thermostat packs up during self clean as the oven generates excessive heat.

Generally one would have to be very cautious when dealing with gas appliances. I am assuming you are familiar with gas applicances and will know how to prevent any accidents when attempting to repair the appliance.

Refer this assembly diagram and parts lists to work out how the controls etc fit together. If you think this diagram is not matching your unit then provide the full serial no. of your unit. This will be on the plate where the model no. is listed.

please rate the solution if you found it useful otherwise drop a comment.

Iam using the self clean on the oven . Is there anything I need to know? Itook the racks out before starting the self clean.


Yes never use the self clean right before a holiday like thanksgiving.
99.9% of the time everything will be fine. The other time when you're going to need the oven the HSI will go bad a the oven will not relight. This happened to me. I love self clean. Do this on a cool day it will heat up the kitchen and kinda smell a little. Make sure all racks and cookie sheets are out, lock the door and hit the button.

Blinking oven and heating Lights


for no reason the cleaning light went on, even though the oven was not on. The oven light and heating light were alternating each blinking 5 times. The door locked up, too. It seemed to think it was in a cleaning cycle. Any way, problem solved by throwing off the main breaker and all is working fine since... except now, for no reason the oven fan, not the exhaust fan, stays on all the time!
