    The diagram is fairly hard to see even on a large screen. I'm looking for the thermostat housing as we speak. Have not located it. If it is under the stove top, I am having some trouble removing the stove top as it does not easily lift upwards and seems to be fastened somewhere underneath. Would like to converse further concerning this issue. Thank you.

    I think what I may be looking for are these parts here.
    The thermostat sensor link you sent does not seem to be the thermostat itself. I'm still in this rabbit hole. Man, I've never seen a stove like this one before. I guess the nice people that sold it to me had enough. haha. Thanks.

  • mprops Oct 20, 2010

    Yep, That's what I'm going after right now. These companies never figure that the high end appliance they sold that rich guy might get handed down to a poor guy like me. I'd need a repair man, or a full day to get to that. The main issue is there are screws holding the side panel on, which, in order to get to the following must be done: 1. Remove back panel and remove 3 screws. 2. Remove door and door assembly and remove screws. 3. Remove front and control panel assembly. 4. Remove burners (how I have no idea). 5. Remove top and finally, remove 3 more screws inside burner box holding on the side panel. 6. Remove side panel and cover for part. 7. Push friggin button.

    Isn't that just wonderful? Makes my day.

    Thanks for the help. I'll never buy another Thermador, even if I could afford it. haha.

    Well...tuck this away in your bag of tricks. I could not remove the top, so I measured in 21" and up 5" and drilled a 3/8" hole right over top of that little red button. My only concern is that since I drilled through the side panel and through the shroud covering the sensor will I be causing the sensor to malfunction in some way??? After I was finished I put foil tape over the outer hole. This way, next time I have this problem, I can just pull out the stove, remove the tape, and push the button. Please inform me if I've just compromised the safety of my family. Thank you.


    ps. that shroud covering the button is open on bottom and...I think on top. You can see it in the diagram you sent me last. Thanks.

Usually the thermostat packs up during self clean as the oven generates excessive heat.

Generally one would have to be very cautious when dealing with gas appliances. I am assuming you are familiar with gas applicances and will know how to prevent any accidents when attempting to repair the appliance.

Refer this assembly diagram and parts lists to work out how the controls etc fit together. If you think this diagram is not matching your unit then provide the full serial no. of your unit. This will be on the plate where the model no. is listed.

please rate the solution if you found it useful otherwise drop a comment.

    Sorry, did not realise the quality of the diagrams were not good. I am hoping you are clicking on the full view link of the diagram.

    You would have noticed the left side of the webpage has got heaps of diagram links to select. If you scroll down you will see more assembly diagrams. The thermal sensor (thermostat) is in this page. It is item no. 9.

    Hope this helps.

  • Sam Oct 20, 2010

    Looks like I copied the wrong link for you last time.

    Sorry about this.

    The item you are mentioning is the right one and it is item 5 on this page.

    It might have a button which you press to reset the oven. If it does not have the button then it is a hard wired fuse and you have to replace the part.

    Hope this fixes this up.

  • Sam Oct 21, 2010

    Not sure what to say. Generally I would not recommend such drastic action as drilling holes on side of applicances.

    Ovens can get very hot and I would not think the tape will hold for long. If there are panels next to the oven you are compromising the safety of the kitchen.

The clock works but the oven does not heat up

Hello George, welcome to fixya.

The symptoms you describe are a common occurrence when the hi-limit has tripped. This typically occur's following a self clean cycle. The display will indicate the oven is indeed "on" but it will not heat do to the circuit being interrupted by the hi-limit ( which is what it was designed to do ).

Fortunately if it is tripped, they are the manual reset type and are accessible behind the black grill/vent just above the door and just below the control panel next to the lock latch assembly. **Turn off the 40amp breaker at your service panel or sub-panel in the home before attempting any first**

With the power off, you should be able to remove the grill and push the red button in the center of the thermostat and that should fix your problem...if indeed the hi-limit is tripped you`ll know immediately because you`ll feel it click as you push it down. It will look like the image below...52bc5ab.jpg

Let me know if I can assist you further. If this solves your problem please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know and I`ll try to guide you through other possible scenario`s.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck.

Thermador SM272 - Oven not heating after self clean cycle

Your repairman might be right but I would have checked the main heating element first for this reason: The self-clean cycle uses that same element as you need for the oven but is allowed to rise to a much higher temperature (~ 900-950 degrees) during the cleaning cycle and it may have self-destructed. Since your problem started after the cleaning cycle, I would have checked the element for continuity first.

OVEN will not heat

KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!

Blinking oven and heating Lights

for no reason the cleaning light went on, even though the oven was not on. The oven light and heating light were alternating each blinking 5 times. The door locked up, too. It seemed to think it was in a cleaning cycle. Any way, problem solved by throwing off the main breaker and all is working fine since... except now, for no reason the oven fan, not the exhaust fan, stays on all the time!
