This technique is for a DCS range. On the hinge flanges their are two parts to each side. The lower flange has a little clip on it that attaches to the upper flange. To attach these bend these by laying the door down with the inside of the door up and using a rag or something to pad the palm of your hand, press the upper flange down till it meets the lower flange then hinge the clip up (that is on the lower one) and attach it on to the upper one. Do this on both sides then pick up door and slide the flanges into the slots on the range till they meet resistance. Bend the door down slightly, release the clips and close the door. If this doesn't work the first time, repeat process with different door angle. Be careful not to force anything, this is actually easier than it appears.

We have the same model. It just did that today, tripped the 50A breaker for the oven and the 100A breaker for the house. The part that failed is on the back of the clock. remove the panel from the top of the back, there are several relays on the board, the large relay on mine had some black discoloration around it. If you remove the two boards from the housing you can see where where L1 and L2 shorted together. The part number for the board is 316207529. New board $132-$169 Rebuilt board on ebay $95
In order to reinstall the door you will need to extend the hinges out on both sides...You will notice a small hole at each hinge..Insert a nail in to each hole (one on each hinge)...Set the hinge so that the it is extended outward with nail in place...Once completed set the door back onto the oven with hinges inserted into slots in housing....Open the door as far as it will go...Remove the nails ..The door should now work properly..
was the door removed during delivery? Hinges not being fully seated can cause this. also check to see if the lock is striking the door liner, it should line up with a slot in the inner surface of the door and not touch anything unless the oven is in self-clean
We found the answer in the installation manual not the owners manual. GE was not helpful.
Step on the latch while holding the door straight up (as if it were closed on the oven). Apply pressure with your foot to the latch and it will open fully. Put the lock in place towards to door. It was then easy to reinstall the door. The installation manual stated that the doors sometimes did this...
Frustrating that the installers are allowed to know this but the owners are supposed to remain in the dark -- unless they are clever like -- ah - ha - ME!
this may seem like a silly question if you've already tried it but have you checked the over temp breaker? If you have no idea what I'm saying there is a breaker on the back side of your machine. Of course Thermador is so kind to place it convenietly behind the back panel so you'll have to remove that. There should be a little red button in there somewhere toward the top middle half of the machine I should say. If you press that button it may work.
I had the exact same issue with my Cornue Fe (only on the right hand side oven). The other symptom I noticed was that the door itself didn't close as smoothly as the left hand side oven.
Take a look at the alignment of the "post" sticking out from the oven relative to the spring loaded catch on the door. These need to be *very* well aligned vertically in order to keep the door closed as it heat cycles. You'll notice that the post has a depression at the end of it (furthest away from the door). The door catch has an upper and lower spring loaded roller that is supposed to "catch" on both sides of the depression. If you are misaligned vertically, then only one side of the catch will be applying sufficient force to the depression.
In my case, the post and the catch were misaligned by about 4-6mm. In fact, I noticed that repeated opening & closing of the door was actually causing some wear on the upper roller of the catch. To fix, I needed to raise the door, which was accomplished by adjusting the hinges.
I removed the door from the oven, which can be done by removing the screws on the hinges. The hinges consist of a bottom & top knob that slot into the door (similar to the way refrigerator hinges work). The hinges themselves are made of ~1/4" metal (could be stainless, but it's relatively soft stainless). I put the lower hinge in a vise (appropriate covering to prevent scratching) and *gently* bent it up to adjust the door upwards. Putting it back together required some help (the door is heavy), but after a bit of work it was all back. Thankfully the alignment was right the first time. This whole process took about 20 minutes.
In my case, I suspect that either the wife or kids had put too much weight on the door at some point and bent it out of alignment. The problematic door had about 4-6mm of "play" between the top and bottom hinges prior to my adjustment--the working door had zero "play". You might want to check to see if you have any such play before you do this work (you can either look at the hinge itself or simply lift up on the door at the hinge point to see if it moves). If you don't have this same play, but you do have misalignment, then you'll need to adjust both top and bottom hinges.
The other possiblity is that you might have a weak spring in the catch mechanism. You can check that by gently pushing a flat head screwdriver in between the two rollers and feeling for how much force is required to separate them.
Of course, you can also just call the La Cornue service folks and have them check it out.
sounds to me like its one of the door lock switches is stuck in the closed position there are three of them no way the fan should run with the door openun plug it then at the bottom of the control panel should be a screw take it out and the control panel should push up then out get a flash light look to the left hand side where the door is you shold see three micro switches two of which the hooks on the door engage now look at the little plungers see if they are all extended if not replace the one thats not pay attention to the terminals most have three connectors no. nc. comm. note which ones the wires are on of the one you remove and put them back on the new switch same postion if the fuse was blown nothing would work by tech17 thats my name but having trouble with my log in right now
