Question about Thermador MBBS Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Microwave appears to work fine but will not heat at all.

My 2 year old Thermador Mbbs/01 stopped heating this afternoon. All appears well, but nothing gets hot. I have uplugged it in an effort to "reboot". It still doesn't work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi, I am looking right at the LG magnetron and there's no red button to push. If mine doesn't have a red button, can you suggest an alternative? (Or let me know if I'm missing something!). Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the thermal protector on the mag tube quit. It may have gotten too hot and opened up. That is the lesser of all the evils that can happen to a Microwave.

    The trim kit will have to be removed, then the microwave from the cabinet. You will need a tamper proof torx bit to remove the case off the unit. The cutoff in on the mag tube(that part has a lot of fins on it with a fan blowing air thru it to cool it down) push the red button on top the the cutoff to rest. Usually at this point is will put a glass of water in the unit and start it up to make sure it and the fan is running.

Replacement or fix


just replaced our 6 year old Thermador MBBS ($750) with a GE JES2051SNSS from Home Depot ($179). The bottom guide piece from the Thermador bolted right on the bottom of the GE and positioned the new unit so the front trim piece fit perfectly.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

I need to replace the waveguide in my Thermador MBBS / 01 microwave.


Waveguide "cover"I presume? The waveguide is part of the chassis and cannot be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Is there a replacement microwave for thermador MBBS that fits MT30S trim kit?


Thermador doesn't make one, but we found the GE JEB1860SM1SS from Home Depot fit perfectly. For only $259. The repair to fix our Thermador was $618. It was only 5 years old. I couldn't believe it already went out. I won't be buying anymore Thermador appliances.

Need replacement microwave for 6 yr. old Thermador MBBS microwave


I have the Thermador MBBS/01 in a Theramdor oven/warming drawer/microwave unit. When I was told it would be $600 to repair it, I called thermador & they don't make a replacement. Thermador CS was even rude about it. I searched & searched for a microwave that would fit & found a GE model JEB1860M1SS at Home Depot for $259.00. My husband & I just installed it & the frame kit inside, on the old Thermador micorwave fit PERFECT! I could not believe it. I thought we would either have to settle for something looking tacky in the hole or buy a whole new unit. Looks like it came in that unit.

Thermador Built-In Microwave MBBS/01 Diminished Power


Smell could indicate burnt rectifier or mag. ( Or Both) Even a partially shorting transformer that hasnt yet fully shorted out and blown your fuse. I do not know that unit, but if it would happen to have 2 mag systems you could lose 1 and it still heat but probably only at around half power. It has been a long while since I have had to work on a Thermadore. But last time I did I rememeber most of their parts distributors I used to work with had all closed. Do you still have a manuel for that unit from when you purchased it?? Try to find a contact phone number to see if you can call thermador. Ask them if they have anyone in your area doing service for them. While it may no longer be under warranty, a servicer who represents them will have parts, or acces to parts and service literature that other servicers will not.
