Question about Thermador SEC302 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Looking to buy highly reliable double wall oven

Hello! I am 45 years old and enjoying planning our first kitchen renovation. I love to cook and always wanted a double wall oven. I am looking at two models:
Thermador SEC302BP which is discontinued and available for $2899 or the
Dacor E0230SCH which is available for $4000.

I see this as a major purchase and I want this item to be highly durable over the long term. I read a few comments on your site about the Dacor model that are making me doubt that it is a good solution for us. I would bery much value your expert advice. What would you recommend? Would you go with a different brand / model?

Many thanks for your advice.

Well in my professional opinion if I only had those two to chose from I would go with the Thermador unit Why ??? From a service point the parts are readly avib. and the replacement parts cost is less then the Dacor. from my recent repairs the Thermador is more of a heavy duty unit as far as the most options I think Daycor has it beat. I own Gaggenau units and love to cook as you it is just what I wanted. Just remember you get what you pay for and the best match is the unit that will give you the options that are most important to you Hope this helps.

This is a high end wall oven. Common break downs are oven ignitors, all ovens fo that though. Life span for an igniter is 5 to 10 years. Viking is rare to have problems..

Double oven no model number Whirlpool 14 years old Door is locked after self clean and display is blank


Hello,

Your oven has resetable high limit thermostat that tripped off on the self clean cycle,im not sure if you have free standing,or a wall oven if freestanding the t-stat is on back panel if wall oven its behind control panel on upper oven and for lower oven its behind the grill between bottom of upper oven and top of lower oven. In either case it has a small red button that can be pushed in to reset it

Hope this helps and if it does please give me 4 thumbs up

GE P7 Wall oven had bad thermostat????


IF YOUR HEATING ELEMENT IS GETTING ORANGE HOT, AND CYCLING, I WOULD SUSPECT THE THERMOSTAT TO BE THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND IT HARD TO FIND ONE THOUGH DUE TO ITS AGE.

Replacement for built in oven/microwave


Hello tippett_631

Welcome to fixya,

You said, ,
22 years ago you built the house you are currently living in. The above oven/microwave oven was built in. You are interested in replacing this unit with a new unit but it must be the same size. ? by the way i You would be happy with a double oven versus the microwave/oven duo. You have measured across the front of the unit and it only measures 26" across. Any assistance you could give us would be greatly appreciated.

I can help you!
The front is 26 inches.
And how high is it from the top to bottom?
Also when I sell a wall oven I always send out the installer to check the hole or cutout size.
Most of the time no wall oven fits with out at least one cut!
Do you have any room to cut a little on all sides?
What is your model number now. And what color do you want now??
I will send you some GE wall oven models and sizes so you can check your self if it will fit. usually they have to cut at least one side to fit it in the old hole!
