Question about Thermador SEMW302BS Stainles Steel Triple Oven

1 Answer

Thermadore Reliability I am being offered a brand new Thermadore wall oven (Model SEMW302BS) from a model home and I'd just like an honest opinion on the reliability of Thermadore in general. I believe this model is discontinued and I'd like to know if it was for cosmetic reasons (models requiring updating) or reliability/design reasons. Taking on this new oven will require a major re-do in my kitchen and I just want to know if it will be worth it. I checked Consumer Reports and they rate Thermadore the highest in wall oven performance but it also shows it to be the highest in repairs. (gulp) Any insight from an expert would be very, very appreciated. Davis

Re: Thermadore Reliability

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.

    We have Model #FEB 386WECH and after getting

    That's the last time you buy that brand.

    Usually Frigidaire is rated pretty high. I would say you should check reliability of a model before you buy.

    It will get worse, the more digital these appliance's become the more problems there will be.

    The old way is easy to fix, you can't fix boards and pads, they get replaced. But with technology growing so fast,they are not keeping parts for long.

    You should call the company and see what they say, if your nice, maybe they can offer you a discount on a new one.

    Does not make sense that this repair man did not know the pad was bad until after the probe, something seems weird with this.

    Good Luck
