20 Most Recent Thermador PG486GEBS Stainless Steel Kitchen Range Questions & Answers


The cooling fans under the cook top must blow to close fan sail switches. fans stop , oven shuts down. You may have a problem with your main controler board. Shut off yor breaker to range for at least 20min. retry, if it still does same thing your main board is NG. Its burried under the right side burrners.
I recomend calling thermador for service tech. Its not a do it your self thing.

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!

Is this a gas range or electric? If electric, it could be bad heating elements. If gas, it could be dirty/corroded internal heating probe inside the pilot itself and needs to be cleaned with a wire brush or the gas valve has a weak spring and is not staying up to allow gas flow.

Use DeBruce Polish, it is non-toxic and odorless. DeBruce polish is also non-abrasive, also use DeBruce Polish on glass/ceramic cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com

I had the exact same problem. I read someone else turned off the circuit breaker in the electrical panel.. so I tried that. Flipped breaker off for 30 seconds and then turned back on. Oven now works perfectly as before. Go figure??

Your mystery Thermador appliance is broken. Contact your local service department.
Broken element
Broken thermostat
Broken Switch
or heaven forbid ... A failed mainboard!

I wanted to post this up in case someone has trouble finding an answer and what worked for me. I found somewhere else that the 43 code (4 preheat;3heat) blinks was specific to the cooling fan or the temp sensor. I had started to remove the temp sensor off the back wall of the oven but was unsure where the wire ran to. There is a specific Ohm value it should have around 1080 I think (not 100% postive).
What I found during that search is what solved the oven problem for me. On the top of the range, if you pull off the grill grates and remove the center stainless cover you can access under the burners. You can do this without removing any wires or hardware. In the back of this area is a small cover held in by 4 screws. Remove that. Underneath it is the cooling fan switch. It is a mechanical switch that when the fan kicks on it pushes a metal sail that then causes a connection in the switch letting it know the fan is operating. This switch had a little bit of corrosion on one terminal but it is also prone to getting dirty. Clean it off and try to restart the oven. The sail should move forward and the switch makes connection. For me once it was cleaned and any corrosion cleaned off, my oven worked just fine. This is a pretty easy check with the 43 code since it does not involve a lot of invasive work. Hope this helps someone.
