Question about Thermador SC272T Electric Double Oven
The light on the display window indicating temperature has become steadily dimmer and is now almost unreadable. Clock lights are also dimming. The oven reaches the desired temperatures, so the thermastat and oven function are OK. We have recently been baking bread at temps of about 550 degrees. Could high heat have affected the lights? Oven instructions do not address replacement of bulbs on the display window.

I found capacitor c3 (68 uf 35 volt) had leaked and dried up, causing the display to fail. I unsoldered and tested c1, c4, c7, and made sure they were good, using a digital multimeter with the ability to test capacitors. C3 also had visible signs of leakage. Works like a charm again, and the display is bright like new!

I had the same problem, I think it took place when my cleaning person washed it as the motherboard and lcd have very little protection form the top of the oven.. where it would be wiped down

We had this problem and had it fixed under warrenty with a new mother board before 2 years. But it has happened again now we are at 7 years. (no warrenty this time!) I am hoping to find the part and see if we can replace it ourselves. Will see and get back to you.

SOURCE: Dimming temperature and clock light on display window
Check for the fuse on the panel board.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.
Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

I have the same problem twice now. I called Thermador directly and they were not very helpful. This is only 3 yrs. old and we had it fixed 6 months ago and now again. I NEVER cook either so it is a defective light somehow...HELP---I can barely see what temp. I am cooking at or the time....
I have had the same problem, dim display and temperature. The display has been replaced three times or about every 8 months since the first time. Thermador paid the three times but it is out again and they are not going to warranty it this time even though the last one was put in only 7 months ago. I cannot believe a company like thermador cannot fix this problem. Guess I will try another brand in the future.
We replaced the light panel two years ago and it is happening again. Only now they say they are not manufacturing the parts!!!! Thermador seems to think it is OK to stop making parts for items over 4 years old!!! that is insane.
