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

1 Answer

Very Smelly Oven despite frequent cleaning (3 hours each time)

I complained when this stove was new and was told to clean the oven for 3 hours instead of two.  I have done this faithfully and often.  I also wipe out the oven regularly and scrub down the racks.  I believe the blue liner used in the oven is very porous and absorbs odours.  Or is there a way of cleaning the oven vent?  It has become very unpleasant particularly as I am not able to have a fan other than the charcoal one over the stove.  I keep a fan near the stove, leave the kitchen outside door open, use candles etc. to reduce the odour.  I would be very grateful for any suggestions including replacing the oven linings if an improvement has been made.

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.

SOURCE: Thermador oven doors

I would call Thermador directly to see if they can help you. My oven door didn't have the proper restrainers, it cost 159 dollars for a repair person, and the proper restrainers. It's expensive, but it's a good deal over the life of the oven. Thermador has their own repair team. But if they can't send someone, then see if you can get the parts yourself.

They have told me that now, it shouldn't fall off. Unfortunately, when people take the door off, they often lose the pins that keep the hinges open (for installation) they also lose the retainers.

You have to adjust the air flow to the burner. You are getting too much gas.
Verify the LP orifice changeout is correct.

Lost Manual and would like instruction on how to set for self clean cycle?


Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.

1. Press SELF CLEAN.
2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle.
3. Press START.
The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be
displayed.
4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN
indicator lights will turn off.
5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.

Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.

If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.

It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.

    My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


    Hello,

    Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

    IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
    The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).
    hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you

    Moffat Stove with a self-cleaning oven. I would like to know how to clean the oven using the "self cleaning" feature


    hi there! I have a moffat stove and hopefully these instructions help you.
    First clear out the racks in your oven. Take them out and remove any excess chunks at the bottom.
    Then close your oven door and lock it by pulling the lock latch.
    Now looking at your oven knobs [not your burner knobs] turn both of them so they are both on the arrow knob [your oven knobs should have small pictures on them and both should have arrows]
    Now you need to set the time so in the middle of your oven their should be a timer and one start and stop timer on top of each other. Both timers go in increments of half an hour. So if you are starting your self cleaner at 3 move the dial to 3 or if you are starting at 3:30 move the dial to one tick after 3. Once you set your start timer, you need to set your stop timer.
    Setting your stop timer, it is recommended to set it for 3-5 hours. I set mine for 4 hours. So then set stop timer to time you want the cleaning to be. If you set your start timer at 3:30 put your stop timer at 7:30.
    The oven will start cleaning according to the time you set. The oven will get very hot. I recommend to not used the burners as the temperature goes to 500 degrees! You will smell an odor and that is your oven cleaning.... Hope this helps...

    How to clean gas oven


    hi,

    use a 2 hour self clean cycle for light soils and a 3 hour cycle for heavier soils. The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an open window, ventilation fan or exhaust hood during the 1st self clean cycle. This will help eliminate the normal odors associated with the 1st self clean cycle.
    when the controls are set, the oven door will lock and the “LOCK” indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing

    Frigidaire electric stove keeps beeping


    IF IT HAS A MECHANICAL CLOCK, THE START AND STOP TIMES NEED TO BE SET, THE OVEN CONTROL SET TO CLEAN, AND THE SELECTOR SWITCH SET TO CLEAN.
    TO CLEAN NOW SET START TIME TO THE TIME ON THE CLOCK AND THE STOP TIME TO 3 HOURS LATER.
    LOCK THE DOOR. IT SHOULD START AND THE CLEAN LIGHT SHOULD ILLUMINATE, OR OVEN ON LAMP SHOULD LIGHT.
    IF IT STILL DOESN'T WORK, THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE CLOCK OR THE CONTROLS OR THE LOCK ASSEMBLY.
    A WIRING DIAGRAM WOULD BE BEST FOR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM.

    Self cleaning


    You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
    and download the manual CAUTION 
    • It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
    • To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
    • Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
    a clean cycle. 
    Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
    Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

    The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
    to automatically clean the oven interior. 
    The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
    to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
    heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
    During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
    ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

    Before Self-Cleaning 
    1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
    2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
    3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
    cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
    cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
    4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
    5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
    6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

    Important: 
    • Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
    Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
    • Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
    To set Self-Clean: 
    1. Close the oven door. 
    2. Press the Clean pad. 
        • CLEAN flashes. 
        • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
    3. Press the Autoset pad. 
        • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
    4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
         “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
         “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
         “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
    Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
    5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
        • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
        • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
        • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
          remain steady. 
        • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.
