Question about Thermador C272 Electric Double Oven
This is a model SM272; it stops after 3 seconds.

You may be having a problem with the timer. Since it is telling you "the food is ready" it is not just shutting down with an error or from execessive current draw.
I am guessing that it does start to heat, just stops after 3 seconds. If that is true the magnatron is probably OK and the power supply is also functioning properly. That is good news.
The bad news is the timer is controled by a microprocessor, and the problems you may have with that are not anything easy to troubleshoot by the user. It will require a trained technician to determain the exact problem. it may need a new microprocessor, or more likely , it has another component in the microprocessor circuit that is faulty.
I am sorry to say, this will require service from a professional.
Although this may not be the answer you had hoped to hear, it is the most likely problem, a precise answer to your question in a forum like this is very unlikely to get, considering the symptoms your microwave is having.
If you found this information helpful a good rating is always appreciated. Hopefully the repair will not cost more than the microwave it worth, but considering the prices of new microwaves these days, that is also unlikely.
If I can be of any more help feel free to ask.

1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.
2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.
3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.
1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.
2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.
3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.
4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.
5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.
