Re: error message

F5 means the oven control is bad.  Will need to replace control and overlay.  Overlay is usually a separate part the sticks onto the oven control.  Oven control is also called the clock.

FSE1 CODE just popped up on the stove and the latch started going back and forth and the interior light would go on and off. We weren't even using the stove or oven when this happened. What does

The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cook-top. Here is the part to order.

Flashing Lights on Thermador Oven/Range

the lights flashing in a sequence indicates the error code. The error codes indicates what the problem is with your stove. Based on the response to your message, it sounds like their error code is 12, one then two. It is not clear what your error code is.

There is an explanation of the error codes on the wiring diagram that comes with the stove. I found the wiring diagram for my stove taped to the inside of the kick plate. The kick plate had to be removed to find it.

my oven is not working either. the error code I get is 34. I am told by a technician that error code indicates that the computer is not recognizing that the cooling fan is operating, which is why my oven will not work.
When I try and order a new cooling fan from Thermador, the website says that it is temporarily out of stock. Obviously, other people are having the same problem I am.

Error flashing F5

We had a similar problem where F5 was flashing but the burners actually continued to work. It turns out that this was related to moisture (the problem typically happened when boiling water). Adding a strip of aluminum tape inside the back panel seems to have solved the problem (fingers crossed).
