The reason for the SEM being discontinued is that the design itself went thru a update. Thermador had decided that it was wanting to change the style and features of their ovens and the best way was to redesign. This is still a very good and reliable oven. My advice is as always, do you really want the oven. If you will be happy with a lesser model, then stay with it. If this oven/microwave/warming drawer combo meets your needs better, then get it.

Oven doesn't give steam but it does reach the temp.how can i fix that?


First locate the water solenoid valve. Disconnect the water line to the inlet side of the valve to make sure water is getting to the valve. Once that's verified, disconnect the outlet side of the valve. Activate the steam and verify that the valve opens and there's a good amount of water coming out of the valve. If no water comes out. Verify that the coil is getting energized with the correct voltage. If the correct voltage is present and you have no water coming out. Replace the solenoid. If everything is working then remove the left panel inside the oven to check for blockage in the steam manifold. The manifold consists of a pipe with several spray nozzles that spray water on rebar. Remove all the nozzles and activate the steam. Do this several times to purge any rust or debri. Clean the nozzles and replace them. You should be good to go.

Ice cube dispenser not working


Hi there, did you find the answer to this problem? We have exactly the same issue. We noticed a burnt smell in the freezer, mainly transferring to our hands when we touched packaging. The ice dispenser was working fine but the ice started to taste funny (a bit like burnt plastic) and had black bits in it. We took it out to clean the tray and since putting it back in, it just won't work. We don't know if we have put it back in wrong or if something has blown. We can still hear the motor when we try to press for ice, but nothing comes out. No water is making its way into the ice cube tray to form the ice, but we still have cold running water. I would be so grateful for any help. Thanks

check that the temp setting knob has not been turned to zero for the fridge. The light is only to let you see what is inside the fridge and is not an indicator of the fridge working.

Check the power cord if the refrigerator does not operate. Plug it in if it was accidentally unplugged, or try another outlet if that appears to be the problem. Double-check the circuit breaker in your home to make sure it is powered on.
Inspect the refrigerator door if it doesn't completely close, or if it doesn't open easily. It could be that the bins or shelves are out of place, or certain food packages may keep the door open. Also, the gaskets of the door can get dirty over time, so clean them with soap and warm water.
Examine the temperature of the refrigerator. If it's too warm, then reset the temperature controls. Check the air vents inside the refrigerator to make sure they're not blocked. Readjust the temperature if items in some of the compartments are freezing.
Watch for trouble with the icemaker if your model has one. It may take at least one day for the refrigerator to produce ice, especially if you've just installed it. Connect the refrigerator to the household water supply and turn on the supply shutoff valve to get ice. If the ice is gray or has an unusual taste, install a water filter to flush out any minerals.

Fix the water dispenser if you can't pour a full glass of water. The refrigerator's water shutoff valve may be off or incorrectly installed. Wait 24 hours for the water to cool if you've just installed the refrigerator. The water temperature should be no more than 50 degrees F.

My gas oven isn't heating up properly, is there


We were able to trouble-shoot our gas oven before calling the repair man. Our oven reached temperature but did not reheat when it cooled down. Our troubleshooting included taking out the storage drawer and looking at the underside of the oven near the valve.

First check if you can see the flame when the oven is on.

Use an oven thermometer in the oven to test if the oven gets to the desired temperature first. Does it get close to the desired temperature and stay near there for your entire bake time? If it does, you may need to adjust the thermostat setting. (This should be in your manual. Many Frigidaire manuals are available from their support site: http://www.frigidaire.com/Customer-Support/Videos--Manuals/ . )

Since our oven was reaching the set temperature and then not reheating, we had one person crawl under the oven and tap on the regulator when the oven needed to reheat. (We could see the ignitor spark.)

If the oven isn't heating at all, then the thermostat, the gas valve, controller or ignitor are suspects. Can you see the spark of the ignitor? Then it's probably not the issue. Similarly if you see the flame coming on several times during the bake cycle, it's not likely to be the valve. If you have a multimeter, you may be able to check the thermostat and controller for any breaks in the wire.

In our case, since the valve was failing, we ended up replacing the 10-year old range. (We looked at the price of a new range versus part and labor cost for the replacement. The part and labor was more than 50% of a new range.)

I hope this helps.

Hi have an electric Kenmore oven - did self cleaning and it started beeping with an F3 code


The problem with the fabric softener not dispensing is not likely related to and F03 error code due to the washer not draining.

For the dispenser problem, I recommend that you pull the dispenser drawer out and clean it thoroughly.
The fabric softener dispenser works on a siphoning principle.
Make sure that the siphon hole in the dispenser is clear and not restricted or plugged.

You can fill the fabric softener compartment with water and make sure that it is siphoning properly while you are cleaning it.
Make sure that the cover is properly replaced on the fabric softener dispenser when the drawer is replaced in the washer.
You can use the diagnostic test described below to test the fabric softener dispenser.
If the softener dispenser does not fill and dispense properly, you could have a failed dispenser valve, a failed control board or a wiring failure between components.

You indicated that you tested the pump and that it is good. You could have a clogged drain hose or a clogged washer drain that would prevent the washer from draining.
You could also have a failed drain pump even though it runs. If the impeller is jammed or damaged, it will not pump out the water in the washer.
You will likely need to unplug the washer and drain the water out of the tub using a wet/dry shop vacuum.
To check the pump and drain hose at the bottom of the washer, remove the bottom front service panel and remove the drain pump. You may find a clog or restriction in the drain pump or connecting hoses. If the drain pump is damaged or will not work, it will need to be replaced.
