Question about Thermador RDF30 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven shuts off

Thermador built-in model # RDDS30V (APPROX. 10 YEARS OLD):
We have several problems with our Thermador as listed below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
1. The front simmer burner does not work.
2. When the oven is on and we turn a simmer burner on the oven shuts off and the clock blinks (as if there were a power outage).
3. After the oven has been on and the unit is off the range ignitors make noise as if they are trying to light the burners.
4. The electronic read-out lights are dim.

    thanks for the info - it confirms what I suspected.



    Is there a spark module for each burner?



    Are these repairs something I can do (having a reasonable level of mechanical ability and typical tools)? does he unit use all solderless connectors?



    Are repair manuals or diagrams available for this unit?

    THANKS!

Sounds like the spark module has been shorted out and quite possibly the main control board. Apptech.

Amana first addition oven (approx 10 years old) will not heat


I had a similar problem with my Amana oven, also about 12 years old. It was slow to heat and sometimes wouldn't reach the set oven temp. I replaced the oven igniter on a tip that it wasn't drawing enough current to open the gas valve solenoid. That did the trick. It starts immediately and heats to the right temp. Good luck. Joe

Make sure there is proper electrical power going to range. Then check your kitcen circuit breakers or fuse box in your house, then reset the oven controls.
LOL look what i found, a CHILD LOCKOUT FUNCTION-- check this out
TO SET CHILD LOCKOUT
Press and hold the COOK MIN/HR and STOP TIME buttons until indicator word OFF appears in the
display (approximately 6 seconds).
TO CANCEL THE CHILD LOCKOUT
Press and Hold the COOK MIN/HR and STOP TIME buttons until indicator word OFF disappears
from the display (approximately 6 seconds). Mode selections will now be available on the control panel.
looks like someones could have been playing with the buttons and locked you out..
Let me know what happen.........................please rate this

Thermador oven


If oven does not heat check heating element and oven control. Follow also suggestion below:
" It won't bake Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.


  • You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.


  • If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Oven shuts off


astrosandiWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

you asked , Is there a recall on this Tappan range? You are exasperated; you have replaced the electronic control three times in the last six years and the clock still blinks off and on occasionally and the oven shuts itself off. Totally frustrated and would never buy this oven again.

What is the model number?
How old is the range?

Don't put good money into bad!
You need to shop quality and not price!


Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old range



Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
