Question about Thermador SEC301 Electric Single Oven

2 Answers

Heating elements do not heat

I have a single, built-in electric Thermador oven, Model No. X301XP, Serial No. 99070550. Neither the oven or the broiler works. Have I blown a thermostat or internal fuse? There does not seem to be any obvious problem externally with either of the heating elements.

Re: Heating elements do not heat

It sounds as if you have a tripped thermal cut out. This is accessed by removing the 5 or so screws on the black grate below the control panel and pulling the grate out. Somewhere in the middle towrds the front should be a little button wiht 2 wires hooked to it. make sure you have the power off to the oven, then reach in with a screwdriver or your hand if you can and push the little red buttton down untill it clicks. The cause for this to trip could be bent door hinges not allowing the door to close fully (common thermadore problem), bad door gasket especially in combination with running a self clean cycle, broiling with the door ajar, or a bad cooling fan (the one behind the electronics, not the one in the oven) Hope this helps.

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


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.

Probably due to a fault on the oven heating element. Check continuity and earth with a multimeter if you can but it's odds on you will need a new heating element.

I just found out my baking oven doesn't work and I hear the fan for the convection roast, but no heat. I had the appliance man out and he said that I need a relay board! Big bucks and they don't make this model anymore. Moreover, the microwave and warming drawer work fine. This is ridiculous!

Heating Elements for oven and broiler do not heat

There is four crimp connectors on the inside at the element. They can go open circuit. I would check them. There is an interna thermal fuse, when the element blows that usually goes too. Good luck
