Thermador Oven won't heat after running self-cleaning cycle

Hi, Totally frustrated here. Two years ago, after running my self-cleaning cycle, the oven would no longer heat. We thought it was the element; no dice. We called in a licensed Thermador repairman. After nearly $400, it was fixed. Then, it happened AGAIN this spring. This time they opted NOT to charge us, as they felt that they had not fixed it correctly the first time. Guess what happened last night? After using the oven self-cleaning cycle successfully 6 weeks ago, when I used it last night, it once again killed the oven! It won't heat. The range is only 10 yrs old. It's already been 'fixed' twice. Any ideas/suggestions (other than mine, which was, "Oh, good, time for a new one!" which of course my husband shot down!) would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I guess it's back to using my outdoor gas grill as my oven to bake Christmas cookies! YIKES! Thanks!

SOunds like you need to reset the oven high limit switch. It should be located behind the grille obave the oven opening and below the control panel. There should be about 4-6 screws you need to take out to remove the grille to gain access. Turn the power of to the oven at the circuit breaker, then rech in with a screwdriver and push down on the little red button in the center of the hig limit until it clicks. the high limit should be about as big around as a quarter and have a wire going into one side and out the other. If this keeps tripping, you may have a bad cooling fan. When you run a self clean it should also run a fan to cool the components. You should be able to feel a breeze coming out of the bottom of the oven when the cooling fan (not the convection fan ) is running. If this fan doesnt run, it will trip that switch. Hope this helps!

I also had this problem about 11 years ago. A repair person came, pulled the oven out about 6 inches and inserted a pointed tool (an awl or skewer works great) and reset the oven. He then tried to charge me for this!! On my oven it just looks like a tiny hole. It works every time! And yes, my oven never works again after I clean it without doing this. Good luck.

My top oven won't reach temperature. Convection and broil work, bake doesn't. Over a year ago I did a self clean...hasn't worked since. I really need it to work especially with Thanksgiving next week.


It does sound like the element may be bad. The control will cycle the bake and broil elements to even the heat in the oven. if the element is out the oven won't heat well.

Self Clean cycle on Hotpoint Gas range doesn't work


We see a symptom like this due to a failure in the control board. Although it usually also affects bake mode. Another cause could be a problem with the door lock as it must be engaged (by the controller) to initiate self-clean.

If this doesn't help, you can either post the full model number or email me at bruce@fixyourboard.com and we can dig deeper.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, 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.

Self cleaning


Sometimes, according to what I've seen.  My theory is that the elements are probably covered in grime and this causes the damage.  As far as the control...I don't think that makes sense.
Never use cleaner on the elements..also causes damage.
A typical duty cycle for cleaning is 2- 2.5 hours.  Longer and you could burn them up, too.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
