Hi, Can't see the other reply but sadly this usually means that the oven control board may need replacing. However, find a local appliance shop that can come out and run some tests before buying a new board. It could be something more simple that will save you some money.

The problem is a bad control board.
Thermador part number you need is 499845. Unfortunately, the boards are located on the back of the unit, so the range will have to be slid out to replace it.
the hardest part about doing the repair is going to be getting to the board. It's mounted on the back wall behind the two lower panels. This means you'll have to slide the unit out to do the repair, and this unit weighs well over 600lbs. Some servicers use sliders which can be slid under the feet, where others have air-sleds that make the job many times easier.
Once you get to the board it's just a matter of swapping the wires. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
