Question about Thermador SMW272 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Thermador sm272zs microwave/oven combo

My display for the oven went out. I ordered the new relay/display board and harness from Thermador and replaced all the parts. Now the screen is visible, but just barely! The room has to be dark to see it. Is there something else that could be contributing to this problem of a very faint screen, or do you think I just purchased a faulty new board? My first board went out shortly after the oven heating element burned out. Do you think there is any correlation? Thanks for your help in advance

    Yeah, have the same problem. Display has faded out to the point
    where it is difficult to read. And unit is only a few years
    old! No more Thermadors after this. I've learned my lesson!

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!!!

    Today is Friday Nov 26, 2010. My smw272 built-in oven is 7 years old. So far I've had to replace the bake element twice, the convection element twice the mother board and as of Wed the 24th one side was always hotter by 25 degrees and took 30 to 45 minutes to preheat. Yesterday on Thursday Nov 25, 2010 (ONLY Thanksgiving day) the motherboard went out AGAIN and I had no over at all to cook dinner with. Not only that, but this is the second Thanksgiving that the oven didn’t work. Is this what’s known as Thermador quality? I’m on line now shopping for a Kenmore. They’re always more reliable!

You need a new display kit. The display kit has a new clock relay board and the white harness to the clock. The repair is straight forward.

The control panel on my Thermador scd302tp will not light up. The oven works fine. The appliance company wants to replace the entire control panel. Can it be fixed for cheaper?

Hello, welcome to Fixya. To answer your question "Is there a cheaper fix?" In a word...maybe. **Turn off the breaker before attempting any service suggested here please** The first thing to look into is to check the harness which comes from the main relay board to the display head, they can become unsecured from the display or the main relay board/control and that will affect the display in a negative way, i.e. faded or no display illuminated. You may or may not be surprised how much those things vibrate under normal use with the cooling/convection fan running etc. and over time the harness becomes unsecured. Check "J1" on display head as well as "J1" on relay board of the display power harness and insure they are secure in place, wiggle them a bit to see if the display illuminates when turning the power back on. If that doesn`t yield any positive result`s you`ll need a new display head kit part # 492067, it comes w/harness and main relay board ( see image below ) and it is typically about $250 or so, but I haven`t had to purchase one in 4-5 yrs. I`ve checked and their site says it is discontinued, but if it turns out you need one I may have one in my garage. ( I used to have my own appliance business, hence I still have some "new old stock". we can communicate via email if need be ) Let me know what you find and how it goes with the harness check, I`ll watch for your reply on your post here. I`ll cross my fingers for you it`s just a loose harness. Hopefully this was helpful to move you forward and shed some insight on what to look for at least. Good luck macmarkus :)

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!

Thermador Display

Have 2 Thermador ovens, SMW272 and SC302. Both have display failure. Just repaired one with replacement display. It did not require a new control unit or harness. Have not opened up second unit yet as display is still dimly/slightly visible.

Called Thermador and received no offer of replacement parts or service. Numerous other web reports of similar failures. My neighbor has 2 dead ovens also unfixed because of outrageous repair estimates ($600 each). Do not recommend this brand.

Full kit including display, control, and harness ordered on Ebay for $170.
