Sounds like the thermostadt is simply shutting off at the wrong temperature.
That is most likely located in the controle section of the cooker where you select the features and cooking temperature. Those thermostats can be off pretty easily.
The are sombined metalic items that change resistance at varying rates with temperature. Not uncommon.
That would have to be replaced. No way to adjust one.

Thermador warming drawer takes 45 minutes to reach 190 degrees on high setting! That can't be right! Tech support said it should be 220 degrees on high and should take 20 minutes to fully heat.


I recommend that you go with your microwaves and claim to fix it. This can be a problem with magnetron, or power diode, capacitor faulty, or thermostat.

God bless you

The induction cooker when put on it shows E6 after about a minute or so and no heating takes place.


There is a error message there, it indicate a problem with your induction cooker. It cause a defective winding wire or circuit controllers your know induction cooker works similar to the principle of electro magnet induction, it give heat to metal cooking pot. I hope I give you a idea regarding what happen to your unit.

From your description it sounds like the magnetron is failing, or the high voltage transformer is not putting enough high voltage to properly drive the magnetron, the other possibility is the solid state triac is not working properly, normally if it becomes defective the power level stays on one only, but you stated even at full power it was only defrosting, so it would seem the triac is working but maybe not they way it should. The cost for parts and labor could be close to the price of a new unit depending on the nature of the repair.

15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450


After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

Sharp R-1874F Low Convection Temp


We have the 2 service manuals you need to refer to for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

The manuals have a safety info, disassembly info, troubleshooting chart, test procedures, part numbers, etc.

I would first suspect a bad thermistor, but it should be checked, as well as the line voltage at the outlet, etc.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
