Question about Thermador SC272T Electric Double Oven

Dimming temperature and clock light on display window

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 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.

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!

Is this straightforward to replace yourself? It isn't obvious to me how to remove the panel cover/touchpad. Does anyone have instructions on this repair?

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.

Oven digital lighted display is dim


You need to replace the C3 capacitor on the control board

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2009/01/28/cheap-fix-for-a-dim-display-on-an-oven-control-panel/

You can replace only the C3 - it is 68uF / 35V and you can go to Radio Shack and get their part # 272-1028 - 100uF/35V one. It takes all but 10 minutes to re-solder the new one in place

My clock and temperature display is dim


Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.

If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.

Display panel


Dim display indicates a "failing" electronic oven control. It will continue to get dimmer and dimmer until it fails completely. You need to replace the "clock" (sometimes called the ERC <---Electronic Oven Control)

This is a tricky repair. Be sure you have the power off (at the breaker box) before attempting this.

Lighted clock and controls intermittently not working. Oven still heats


HI thanks for the question. its a common problem with the clocks. first it goes a little dimmer. then a little more till it goes so dim you cant even see the temperature that you have in the oven. the clock has to be replaced. or. buy a cheap oven thermometer. and hang on the middle rack, and adjust the temp setting to match the oven temp . save a lot of money this way. thanks. please rate my answer. thanks
