Question about Thermador SC302T Electric Double Oven

Thermador SC302T clicking noise, locked door after power outage

I'm not positive this is the exact model I have, but it is a double Thermador oven with both thermal and convection options. I had a power outage recently and when the power came back on, the oven lights were flashing, the bottom oven was making a clicking noise (similar to the noise ovens make in a self-cleaning mode), and the bottom door was locked. No touch-pad buttons controlling the lower oven were functional, although the upper oven appears to be functional. I can't locate the model number with the bottom door locked, and don't have a troubleshooting manual. The only way to stop the clicking noise is to shut the oven off at the circuit breaker. Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks, i had checked that location and the model or serial number is not there. I believe the oven is ~ 8 years old so that info may be outdated. The model / serial number isn't under the control panel or inside either of the grills below the control panel. Still trying to find a manual for anything close to these models but no luck yet.

    Thanks anyway.

    It is completely touch pad, no dials. I suspect it may be located where you specified, but on the lower oven (which I can't open). Surprisingly enough, when peering behind the grill with a flashlight I see a folded up piece of paper in there! Think i'll get that removed! I don't think this oven got a lot of use.

    Do you think the lock motor is replaceable by a DIYer or will it require a service call? I live in a rural area and it's hard to get people out here for repairs.

    Awesome! This worked. Once I got the door open I could take a closer look at the latch. It's now able to cycle through a full motion and the oven seems to be working. Still no model number in that location on the lower oven either, but I think i'm back in business now. Thanks so much for your help --- god I love the internet!!

    Thanks again,

    our Thermador oven door [upper] will not open. Locked during self cleaning cycle but will not unlatch now that cycle has completed. This is an older model, does have knobs and a small toggle switch [red] that is supposed to be depressed in order to release lock lever used during cleaning mode. lever is pretty much unmovable, will not unlock.

Iodine, open the upper oven, look thru the grill below the control panel on the right side and there is your model number. The issue here is that when the power came back on the oven run thru a test and your lower lock motor has failed. It will need to be replaced. Yes the only way to stop this is to shut off the breaker.

    Iodine, does your oven have dials to set the temp and such? If so then the model is behind the lower oven door along the right hand side or if newer then along the right hand side of the upper oven on a metal plate. This is a CT model. Hope that helps

    Iodine, you can do it. Turn off your power to the oven, Pull out on the lower door, take a metal coat hanger and put a 2" bend at 90 degree angle, put the coat hanger 2" to the right of center at the top of the door until it hits the oven can. Now turn rotate the coat hanger until the bent part is down and move it to the left. This will unlock the door. Now remove the 2 screws on the grill and pull it forward. Watch the wires on the door switch. Now you can get into your oven and remove the latch. Your model will be as you stated. That piece of paper in there is the wiring diagram for the oven. Part number for the latch is 489102. I just looked it up.

I can't open my oven

Some ovens have a latch that must be locked for self-cleaning. Look at top of oven door and see if you have a sliding latch. Try to move it back to the left to unlock.

I have broken the outer glass on one of the doors on a thermador SC302TB oven. Is replacing the glass something that a handy homeowner could do?

Yes. replacing the over door glass is no more difficult than removing a few screws, inserting the new glass and reattaching the screws.

That link will take you to a detailed image of the door as well as where you can order a replacement.

Hope this helps.

Self clean won't stop. Door is locked

You may need to trip the breaker and allow the oven to cool completely. Once it has cooled, it should unlock.

How do I use the 'self clean' feature? I can't find the manual and it needs to be done

Good luck with that - whenever we use the self-clean function it goes crazy on us - beeping, error codes - door locks up - have to reset breaker to make it shut down. The last time the door got permanently locked - nightmare!!
Also, there is a recall on some of the wall units - ours of course isn't part of that recall - Thermador doesn't care that we can't open our oven - they'd rather you purchase another piece of junk!!

My thermador double oven does not turn off for 30 minutes.


Welcome to FixYa.

Please clarify if I`ve misunderstood what you`re asking, but with all Thermador ranges and wall ovens ( including your SC302T model, most brands in fact ) the cooling fans will remain on for quite some time after actually shutting the oven off.

This is done by design to keep the electronics cooled to a temperature usually below 200°F so they aren`t damaged.

Heat after all is the thing which damages electronics more than anything else.

I do have use and care guides available via email attachments in "pdf" if you need one.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. I hope this eases your concern. Please let me know.

Hi, My Thermador oven is stuck in Lock mode and won't unlock. Any ideas on how I cancel that? Thanks, Peggy

Try turning the power off and then back on after a few minutes...
if that does not fix it often the best thing to do is to call the manufacturer cust. service number and let them talk you through it...

Oven door remains locked after self-cleaning

Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...
