This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Oven does not work after self clean


Sorry to hear you`ve had an ongoing issue like this. Can you tell me what the model number is of your oven ? Can you also maybe touch on what step`s have been taken in the past when this occur`s ?

Depending on the model and vintage of your oven, it likely has tripped the hi-limit thermostat. The good new`s is it is typically easy to reset as it is a manual reset type hi-limit as opposed to one time non-reset. Also this hi-limit is either located on side, back, or behind the grill between the oven door and control panel/fascia. Let`s hope for the later.

**Always shut off power to the unit before performing any service/repairs**

If it is indeed just a tripped hi-limit as I suspect, ( it is common after self clean cycles on many ranges/ovens, not just Thermador ) I have a few tip`s and suggestion`s after you`re up and running, but we`ll cross that bridge when we get there.

I`ll watch for your reply. Good luck.

Temp control

No adjustment. Could be bad temp control unit or bad oven temp sensor. You would have to purchase a repair manual and test the current flow to and from the circuit. And then testing the oven temp unit with multi-tester.

Oven will not work - Hi/Lo broiler works fine

you have a bad bake ignitor. it is mounted to the long tube in the very back wall of the tube. usually held on by 2 1/4 inch bolts. usually if you replace the ignitor you have to cut the old one off and hard wire the new one in depending on what the new connection on you ignitor look like.

like another person stated-from the front behind the door, take off the 6 screws and the cover by the latch. there is an "oven hi temp limit switch" It is crome with 2 heavy black wires connected to it. On the back side of this is a small red button which will reset the limit switch. I had the same issue (everything worked except the any of the heating elements) and quickly resolved.
