    yea Thank you!! Okay I took it off and now it's moving a little more. So any tricks to get it out of the hole? And what do you do with the old vent?

  • pmengeln May 18, 2011

    So the vent isn't necessary to use the new style electric ovens? I can close it up and it's okay?
    Can I leave this case open for another day until I get it out just in case I need a little more help say with figuring out the electrical?I am waiting for tonight when my husband and sons are home to pull it completely out.

    Thank you so much for you help so far. So much better talking to you then the flaky handyman I was going to hire.

Hello, Welcone to FixYa. I'm not sure if you are aware of it, but those old Thermador wall ovens are exhausted to the outdoors and thus have a vent attached to them at the top of the cabinet at the back. Look in the cupboard above the oven and see if the vent is evident or perhaps hidden behind a cover to shield anything in the cabinet/cupboard from heat exhausting the ovens. The vent typically is fastened onto the oven at the top by a sliding sleeve held by a single screw-clamp or the like. The oven will not come out until the vent is removed and lifted off a couple of inches. Let me know what you find and I hope that helps. Good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

    Hllo again,

    Sorry I missed your reply ( actually I didnt "miss" it, I was sleeping...I'm in western canadian time zone). Anyway, If your enquiring about removing the old oven and the vent it sounds like you are replacing the unit, correct ? If that is the case and it isn't a complete reno, you could simply pull part of the old venting out and block it off in some manner to keep the critters out and such...honestly, I only ever service the units and don't deal with removal/installs of vent stacks. Glad you were able to get the unit out though. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Let me know if there is anything further I can help with. Regards, Macmarkus :)

  • Mark MacDonald
    Mark MacDonald May 18, 2011

    Hi there Michelle,

    You'll need to double check with the manufacturer of the new ovens, but most do not require exhausting to the outdoors and you should be fine just blocking off and abandoning the old vent, yes.
    Keep me posted if you need further assistance. Good luck.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

Good day!


If you almost pulled out that,you have to do is look for any possible lock below the 2" and try to remove it.

If you don't found any secret lock,I suggest to use your plat screw driver to pulled out that.

I hope this information will be helpful.Thank you

How do I clean between the glass?


Hello Alison;

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

This is a bit of a task.

1.) Remove the oven door - Put the door in the first locking position (Opened partly at the top) Pull straight up. When replacing the oven door make sure the door hinges are in the same first open position.
2.) Lay the door face down on the floor.
3.) Remove the back panel. You may have torque screws requiring a special screw driver.
4.) Remove the door latch assembly. But first take a picture of the latch so you can reassembly properly.
5.) Remove the oven glass retaining brackets/plates.
6.) Remove the inner glass.

When you are doing this task make sure you lay out the parts in the order in which they were removed for re-assembly.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes this has been a fairly common issue with the Thermador wall ovens as well as their freestanding ranges.

Typically the remedy will be replacing the hinges, but there is a "fix" you can attempt in the interim. At least in hope of keeping the oven light from being on all the time, hence damaging the control board which houses the oven lights transformer.


The issue with those Thermador wall oven and freestanding range doors ( especially on the freestanding "professional" line ) is the weight of the door is so great, the hinge will actually move slightly over time, other times the entire hinge will need to be replaced.

This is what I'd recommend ( also official Thermador remedy, rest assured as I am a authorized factory trained Thermador service provider ) before pronouncing the hinges need replacing though.

**This does require a somewhat involved repair, so if you don't feel completely comfortable or have any reservation to trying this, please call in an local authorized Thermador ( B/S/H/ ) service provider.**


Recommendation: Adjust the door box hinge per instructions below.


1. Pull the oven away from the wall about 12".


2. Remove the hinge box cover plates.


3. Remove the vertical side trim piece. It covers one of the screws that must be loosened.


4. Loosen the 4 screws that secure the hinge box.


5. Place a rolled up dishtowel at the bottom of the door and close the door and apply light pressure to the door while re-tightening the four screws.


See fig below



6. Re-install the hinge box covers & side trims.


7. Re-install and secure the oven.


2430dfb.jpg

That should do it, ( or as stated, improve the situation ) if the hinges are too far gone they will need to be replaced unfortunately.


Let me know if you require further assistance or if indeed this solved your problem.

Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck going forward.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

After self cleaning my Thermador double oven, it does not heat up anymore The elements are not working. Is there a fuse, switch or something that I can do or check to make it heat up again.


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.

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?


1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

Built-In Oven Buttons Stop Working


It is the whole front face w/ the buttons. My whole neigborhood has these ovens (same builder, same ovens) and this part lasts about 2-4 years. The part is about $165. You can see it on Home Depot's appliance repair site. It looks like there is nothing electronic, but there is, and it's busted. It is really easy to replace:
1. Turn off the breaker at your house's breaker panel.
2. Verify there is no power to the oven.
3. Open the oven door. Look on the right and left side of the oven. There should be 4-6 screws going from vertical trim pieces of the oven into your cabinets. Your builder may have also put screws from the bottom trim of the oven into your cabinets. Mine did not. Remove these screws.
4. After that, your oven should slide forward out of the cabinet. Pull it about 6 inches out.
5. There are two screws (1/4 inch hex headed screws) holding the front panel to the oven. Remove those.
6.Slide the front panel off.
7. Remove the computer ribbon looking wire from the back of the control panel. It's a strange connection - it should come out effortlessly when done right. The little grey connection that surrounds the wire's entry point stays on the panel, but a wedge is jammed between the grey surround and the wire. You pull the wedge out and the wire comes out...easier than my credit card out of my wallet.
8. Remove the four screws (again, 1/4 inch hex headed screws) connecting the thick, double layered circuit board and clock display from the metal face.
9. The metal face is what you need to replace. Pasted onto the front of the metal face is a super thin button panel, and that's the part that died, and will die again, and again, and again...

Bake element does not heat


After removing the racks, rack rails and the back plate I removed the 2 screws the hold the bake element. Lifting the front of the bake element up and carefully pulling the element out and gently moving the element so the connector clear the hole I was able to disconnect the wire. After testing for continuity with an ohm meter (non found) I determined the element need to be replaced. $37 and 45 minutes total.
