Thermador oven/broiler turns off after 5-8 seconds
I have a 30" Thermador ALL-GAS SELF-CLEANING RANGE that I purchased about 2 years ago. I have had intermittant problems where when I turn the oven or broiler on, it starts and lights the burners, but then it seems the gas shuts off after 5-8 seconds. Any ideas of the problem? I have already replaced the ignition unit. Thanks.

To Self-Clean: 1. Press SELF CLEAN to set the clean time to HI (4 hours 30 minutes). 2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" keypads to cycle between LO and HI clean time. 3. Press START. The oven door will automatically lock. The CLEAN indicator light will be displayed. The time remaining will also be displayed. 4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the CLEAN indicator light will turn off. 5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware, all cooking utensils, oven racks and aluminum foil and, on some models, the temperature probe from the oven
oven is equiped with two elements one,< upper > for broiler and the second < lower > is for baking . The bake element is probably damaged and no longer working,< damage is just from use the element has failed >, to know for sure element has to be tested for continuity to confirm this,< unless it is obviously damaged, broken or burnt and seperated >.
I own a similar range. As you can imagine I was dismayed to find out that my $6000 heap can't run a clean cycle, unless of course you just don't want to use your oven again. let me give you a tip something WILL break on your oven every time you use the self cleaning "feature".
The first time I used the self cleaning feature the board burnt up, I asumed hat this was a fluke. The second time the pvertemp sensor burnt out. The next few times that I was brave enough to try it the overtemp sensor triggered this is what I hope has gone wrong with yours since while it's not easy or convenient to fix it is free. If you pull out your range and remove the backsplash and then the rear panel there should be a breaker with a button you can push to reset. On mine it is located near the top of the oven compartment on the left side near the middle. I hope that works for you and you will soon learn as I have after doing this a few times that the self cleaning cycle is just not worth it. It willdo this every time and it really is just easier to use easy off and clean the oven by hand. I realize that is not what you had in mind doing when you bought a luxury Item like a 36" thermador range, but I hope you don't have to hate yours as much as I hate mine.
