Question about Thermador C302U Electric Double Oven
I have a very old thermador side by side oven and the thermocouple actually burned in two and fell in the oven with a few sparks. Is it possible to get a new thermocouple and how hard is it to install. I might also need a heating element and some knobs on the other oven if I can get parts and decide to fix the ovens.
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.

SOURCE: Heating elements do not heat
this problem your having is some connected with your oven shut down thermostat.if that does not solve your prob.next solution would be to check that control board.

Woke up this morning and heard my smw272 built-in oven beeping.
Oh no! First the display (but at least the oven worked) now the
oven is beeping (fault signal according to manual) and the thing
is dead except for the microwave and warming bin. The only
way to turn off the incessant beeping--which was driving me crazy--was
to go outside to the fuse box and turn off the circuit to the
oven. Yeah, I stopped the beeping but now I'm at the mercy of the
unscrupulous service repairman--was quoted a flat fee to drive
out and a hefty hourly rate (i.e., "value added" service charge).
OUCH! Hey folks, please follow my simple advice if you want to
avoid making a big mistake: NO MORE THERMADORS. RUN--DON'T
WALK AWAY FROM THIS BRAND!!!

Its the thermal safety switch. When it trips - it cuts any power from reaching BOTH elements. Open the oven door - at the top wehere the oven latch is - remove the long black panel. In the middle - on the right is a small cylindrical switch...push down on the top - in the very center...it will rest the switch (like a circuit breaker) and then reassemble. Just did it on mine (2nd time) and it fired right up. Good luck

I have just repaired two SC301 ovens myself, but it is alot of work. You can get the oven's LED lights reconditioned at a company called CGI industries. Look them up on the web and click on the link for thermador. Removing the led panel and oven relay board is an involved job, but easier if you do it the correct way. First, turn off the power to the oven. Then pull the oven out of the wall socket about 1 quarter of the way. Remove the top cover of the oven with a phillips screw driver. This reveals the oven relay board. Take a digital picture of the board to remember the wire positions, or alternatively write them down. You also need to remove the touch panel (two screws underneath) and gain access to the LED. Remove the LED panel and wires. ship both to CGI (boards only) and you will have them back in less than a week. Costs about $170 before shipping. Reinstall and turn power on. All is good.
