Sometimes during oven use the broiler will come on and stay on. Nothing will shut it off. Nothing has an effect on it other that hitting the breaker. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does you have to kill the breaker. There are no indicators lights at all, only a glowing broiler element. All the other elements will come on and go off normally when this is occurring. The breaker has to be off long enough for everything to cool down to room temp. Then things go back to normal. Can't seem to find a schematic anywhere to figure this out.

Re: Broiler Sticks on
I would suspect that your broil relay on your Electronic Oven Control board is occasionally sticking. This can be a potential fire hazard if gone unchecked. Especially if this occurs randomly as you have mentioned. I would not feel safe about leaving your range plugged in while not at home, or while asleep. Most major appliances come equipped with schematic drawings and wiring diagrams as part of a tech sheet. One should be located either on the back of the range, or inside the console. The board, however is not normally a serviceable item and will probably have to be replaced. Just a heads up, the part number is 255451 and costs about $200. I hope you find this information helpful. Good luck to you and post back with any comments, questions, or concerns.

On some kitchen ranges, the broiler comes on during the preheat cycle to speed up the process of warming up the oven and reduce the wait time. This is intended as an energy saving feature as well by reducing the amount gas used on a gas range and the amount of electricity with an electric range.
If the broiler comes on and STAYS on while you are baking, this is NOT normal and is probably an indicaiton that you have a problem with the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is your timer/clock assembly on the operator console. The EOC controls all the oven features.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please post your MODEL NUMBER when submitting questions, so I can determine how your range is configured. I hope this helps you.
The cooling fans under the cook top must blow to close fan sail switches. fans stop , oven shuts down. You may have a problem with your main controler board. Shut off yor breaker to range for at least 20min. retry, if it still does same thing your main board is NG. Its burried under the right side burrners.
I recomend calling thermador for service tech. Its not a do it your self thing.
a wire in the back of your stove is grounded... open rear panel after unplugging and look for burnt wires going to the element. the wires will be a higher grade than most.. most likely there is no problem with the broil element itself, but the problem could possibly be located in the oven switch (if it is not digital)
I just had the same problem! I would not have known that the broiler was still on, since the red light was off, except that the oven got so hot that the drips started to burn. The only solution was to turn off the circuit breaker.
This sounds like a serious safety issue!
My guess so far is that there is a broiler relay that has shorted in the on position and will need to be replaced. Until then I cannot use the stove or oven.
