Question about Gaggenau EB290 Electric Single Oven

Open Question

I have a Gagennau under/over oven (Model: EB294630). Each time I turn the temperature guage (on either the upper or lower oven) on and off, the locking latch incrementally (very small movement) moves outward from the oven frame. Eventually, when turning the temperature guage on/off (and the oven door is closed), the door will lock. To unlock the door, I have to (multiple times), turn the temperature guage on/off...until the latch completely withdraws back into the oven frame in one move (one long withdraw move). I need to know how to fix this. The computer board has been changed once by a technician (as this happens to both the upper and lower over). Any ideas?

I am a gaggenau engineer this is usually a fault with the door lock mechanism it can be manually reset eg remove oven and side panel pull back locking arm there is a also a built in test prog in oven clock that will switch door lock back to reset position but these will need to be done by an engineer as oven very heavy.

ring 08705 678910 for service and/or advise

good luck

Hi!!
In order to get the an Owner's manual download you need to supply the E-NR FD numbers on the unit' s rating plate and go to this site https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM The rating plate looks like this

The location of the E-NR - FD numbers can be also found in the unit itself. Here are some usual locations, I know your appliance is a double wall oven, but I could not find a picture of one, so I got the closest thing available, an electric range w an electric oven. 1kbron_62.jpg

Now, if still you can not find the oven's rating plate, I suggest to take a couple of pictures of the oven, find a GAGGENAU dealer nearby, there is an email address and Ph. # on the link above. Or, click on the SERVICE tab, select Gaggenau Worldwide from the menu to the left of the picture, select the Gaggenau Dealer closer to you, contact them and send them the pictures, explain your situation and if they can provide the E-NR FD numbers to download and owners manual. Good luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: We just installed a Gaggenau

It is likely that there was some strain on the top unit door during installation. I am not sure why the bottom door latch would catch with top door. Is the control panel not in between?

You may need to slightly loosen the mounting screws and then tighten while checking the door for level.

Where do I locate the fuses that controls the oven heating.


Hello Pat;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you go into self cleaning both of your burner element peak at there max temperature, well above 500 degrees F.

1.) Oven Element - Over time the elements will fail. Turn the upper element on. Inspect for sparking where there may be a crack in the element. Turn the upper element off, inspect for any cracks.

If there are no cracks then you lower element is fine.

2.) Each of your ovens have a independent thermocouple. Both may have failed due to the extreme heat. Oven thermocouples will fail on older units.

3.) Lets go to the source. You have what is called a infinite switch in your oven. This switch controls your oven temperature. If this switch fails then your oven will not work.

Ok, lets assume you or a friend are good with tools. With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms, In the back of your oven there is a sheet metal cover. Remover the cover, disconnect the two contacts on each thermocouple, and Ohm them out. (Power Off at your breaker box first) You should get a reading of '0' Ohms, anything else the thermal couples are bad.

But, I tend to believe, You have a bad infinity switch. You can also Ohm this out as above with a reading of '0' Ohms.

This component is about $35.00 USD.

If I were still working for Sears Home Services I would charge you $350.00- $450.00 for this service call. Send me your model number and let me see what you have. goodwinpeg@aol.com.

I want to use top and bottom ovens but at different temps - how do I do this


To Set a Cook T ime:
1. On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER
OVEN for the one you want to set.
2. Press BAKE or CONVECT UPPER (on some models).
Press the number pads to enter a temperature other than the
one displayed.
3. Press COOK TIME.
4. Press the HR and MIN "up" or "down" arrow pads to enter
the length of time to cook.
5. Press START/ENTER.
The start time and stop time countdown will appear on the
oven display.
On double oven models only, when both upper and lower
ovens are being used at the same time, touch UPPER OVEN
or LOWER OVEN to display the respective cook time.
When the stop time is reached, the oven will shut off
automatically and "End" will appear on the oven display.
If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound, then reminder
tones will sound every minute.
Repeat the process by choosing the other option of UPPER or LOWER OVEN

I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

"The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."

My Whirlpool oven no longer heats to the set temperature.


Temp probe/thermometer inside oven dirty, or off attachment, or defective. On some models, a small screw head adjustment is provided to calibrate thermometer under dial knob. Else, I would just set dial 50 degrees higher rather than expense of new thermometer or dial.

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

Oven wont work after self clean


I have a Whirlpool MOD. RBS275PDB17 single electric self-cleaning oven; although the manual is generic, it specifies, "When the cycle is completed and the oven cools, "End" will appear on the lower oven display and "LOCKED' will disappear" and "To Stop Self-Clean any time: Press UPPER/OFF, LOWER/OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools." Has your oven had time to cool?
