Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

To address your post, looking for an over-temp cut-out tripped. Here`s what and where to look for for this,

Fortunately if it is tripped, they are the manual reset type and are accessible behind the black grill/vent just above the lower door next to the lock latch assembly.

**Turn off the 40amp breaker at your service panel or sub-panel in the home before attempting any service...safety 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...as shown here,

Other than that if you call in a pro, I'd suggest you be sure they are an authorized B/S/H/ service provider ( B/S/H/ is the parent company for Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau, Siemens products ).

Let me know and I`ll watch for your reply and respond as soon as I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Just remove your heating element and take it with you to an applicance store. They will be able to order you a new one. Make sure you cut the power at the breaker before you remove it though.

Is there a reset for the oven in a thermador smw? I had it worked on years ago and the repai guy simply pressed a button and all was well...also is there a source for control panels, since mine is almost...


Never use Self-Cleaning!!! It will fry components, melt connectors, and burn wires. If you have violated this rule and an oven no longer works, it is probably not a bad element if neither the bake nor the broil work. It is likely the high heat cut out breaker.

On a Thermador CT 227 double oven, there is a panel on the right side (facing the unit) that is about 3 inches wide and runs from top to bottom held in place by about 6 or 8 screws. Turn off the power, slide the unit out of the kitchen cabinet, remove the sheet metal panel and you will see two high heat cut out breakers. They have a small red button in the center that resets the breaker. Push firmly and you should hear a click. If there is no click, check the unit for continuity. If it is open and the button push does not reset it, the unit may be fried. These breakers trip with high heat and will prevent both elements in an oven from heating. If the breaker is good, you'll have to test the leads to each element and then trace the dead lead to the problem.

My oven won't heat up.


You should first check your breaker Box and Flip both polls off then back on and try it.

If both ovens wont work ((Bake & Broil)) after trying the breaker box then the High limit Thermostat could be the problem, It is located in the rear of the machine.

If this problem happened after you did a self clean, most tech's will start at the High Limit Thermostat.

I want to re-set high temperature limit control,


if you open the oven door all the way, then, look under the control panel (where the top of the oven door seats) you will see a plate that has 6 to 8 screws holding it in place.Remove the screws of that plate with a phillips screwdriver.You will possibly need a flashlight to look inside the space where the reset switch is located... but it is THERE. Make SURE that you TURN OFF the circuit breaker or... UNPLUG the range... B4 you proceed to reset. Look for the Red Button on the back side of one of the limit control switches. Press it in till it clicks. (sometimes you'll hear it... sometimes you wont). Plug baack in ro reset your breaker switch, Turn on your oven and see if it works. If it does... then replace the vent plate close your oven door and now your cook"n with gas...well... electricity really.

How do i reset the oven after a power failure?


If your oven won't heat at all, the most likely problem is a blown fuse or a burnt out element. Assuming you're not attempting to repair an antique, your oven will have a clock. If it has also stopped working, it's safe to assume the oven is not getting electricity. Check your circuit breaker box and reset the breaker if necessary and see if this fixes the problem. If not, cut power to the oven at the breaker box before going any further. Note that your oven runs on 220 volts. There should be a double switch on the circuit breaker board controlling power to it. If not, there will be two single switches that need to be tripped to cut power to the oven.
Even if you didn't find a blown circuit breaker, the problem could still be a blown fuse. Some older ovens have their own set of fuses located under the range top, in the back of the oven space, or behind the oven. Inspect the fuses and replace any that have blown with one of the same amperage. Your oven might also have a circuit breaker with a reset button on the control console or on top of the oven that needs to be reset.
If you are still confounded, pull the oven away from the wall. If it is a range/oven combo, make sure it is plugged securely into the wall. If it is a stand-alone oven, inspect the wiring in the junction box to make sure everything is tightly connected and the wiring doesn't show any signs of damage.

I have an es100 frigidaire gas range oven. the bake and broiler suddenly stopped working at the same time. where should i look first to diagnose the problem?


Always check your fuse box first. Just because you have lights on or a display does not mean that one side of your breaker didn't trip. Next if this happened after a self clean then it usualy is the HI Temp cut off thermostat. most of the time it is located in the rear of the machine behind the cover.

Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305 Display doesn't show, oven wont work


Most definitely a bad control board and/or soldered components. (The part about cutting power to the oven was a dead giveaway)
There are low and high temperature solders, but usually solder melts at 370° F. If the oven is improperly insulated or ventilated you will have continued heat stress to the control board.
