Question about Ovens
My Thermador electric oven (RDSS30) will not heat up. I attempted to heat to 350 degrees and after 2 hours it was only at 150. The bottom heating element is not turning red. We've checked the breaker, control panel, and wiring. It looks fine. It's only two years old. Help!
SOURCE: Top oven will not heat up
Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.

if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply

u sure the flame is lighting sounds like it isn't make sure u physically see the flame u might just be seeing the glow of the igniter if it doesn't light more than likely the igniter needs to be replaced

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

We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
