Question about Thermador SMW272 Electric Double Oven
I removed element in lower oven due to failure to heat and found spade connector on element w/ no wire. can box be removed to access wire for repair or does whole unit need to come out of wall?
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.

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.

I have just repaired two SC301 ovens myself, but it is alot of work. You can get the oven's LED lights reconditioned at a company called CGI industries. Look them up on the web and click on the link for thermador. Removing the led panel and oven relay board is an involved job, but easier if you do it the correct way. First, turn off the power to the oven. Then pull the oven out of the wall socket about 1 quarter of the way. Remove the top cover of the oven with a phillips screw driver. This reveals the oven relay board. Take a digital picture of the board to remember the wire positions, or alternatively write them down. You also need to remove the touch panel (two screws underneath) and gain access to the LED. Remove the LED panel and wires. ship both to CGI (boards only) and you will have them back in less than a week. Costs about $170 before shipping. Reinstall and turn power on. All is good.

SOURCE: Lower heating element of oven
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.

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.
