    I have the same problem with my Thermador MBBS/ 01. It started after the appliance was only 14 months old. The repair guy replaced the wave cover but abou 8 months later, it is happening again. He left me with an additional wave cover so I took off the one he installed and noticed that it looks like the paint has burnt off under the cover. This shouldn't happen. I think it has something to do with the internals of the microwave.

    Hello, my Thermadore is just 18 months old and does the exact same thing.
    Is this a manufacturer problem or what?
    Anyway, thanks to this forum, I guess I can try to fix it myself and I'm very grateful for that!
    THAKS!

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smmoth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

I need to replace the waveguide in my Thermador MBBS / 01 microwave.


Waveguide "cover"I presume? The waveguide is part of the chassis and cannot be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Is there a replacement microwave for thermador MBBS that fits MT30S trim kit?


Thermador doesn't make one, but we found the GE JEB1860SM1SS from Home Depot fit perfectly. For only $259. The repair to fix our Thermador was $618. It was only 5 years old. I couldn't believe it already went out. I won't be buying anymore Thermador appliances.

Sparks aplenty!


This is usually just due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

If so, please double-check your model number on the tag so we can help you better.
