Burnt wire at spade connector


If you are unable to catch the wire through the front of the oven where the terminals go through then you will have to pull the oven from the wall and remove the rear panel. Of course make sure the power is off before attempting the repair.

Thermador Built in oven scd302 not heating upper oven, lower oven fine. Heating element not glowing red as the oven below it does.


Hi.

Problem is usually either temperature probe or heating element.

Grab a multimeter and set it on impedance (Ohms).
Remove first temperature probe and then heating element.
If either probe or element is reading open (ohms infinity), then replace the part.

If both probe and elements are not open, then the problem is either wiring or oven electronic control. The most common fault resulting in no heat is the temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity.

Regards.

Lower heating element of oven does not heat at all. Think we saw it sparking before it quit working, not sure why it would do that. Oven is very clean, nothing on walls or on element. Was recently cleaned...


The element sparking and short circuiting has nothing to do with the cleanliness of the oven. An element will break down internally and short circuit due to it's age or hours of service. Have a look at the element to see if there are any holes/blow marks on it. If there are it requires replacement. Sometimes the element will look fine but will still be faulty.

The lower heating element on our Thermador oven arced and snapped in two. I'd like to replace it myself. Just wondering if the new heating element can just be snapped into place with minimum expertise,...


Hi,
Most elements are very easy to remove and replace....there are a few clips holding them in place and a screw to hold the wire at each end of the element.
MAKE SURE to turn the power off before attempting the replacement...

Heating element in upper oven heats to about 300 degrees and temperature will not increase.


That seems to me like it could be an issue with the sensor. Ohm it out. It should be around 1100 ohms if it is any good. Check for shorts from each wire of the oven sensor to ground. I have a manual and a TIP I wrote about these Thermadors.

Thermador SC301T heating elements not working (top and bottom). elements look fine, oven turns on but elements stay cold.... any help would be appreciated. thanks, Tony


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

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.
