Question about Thermador C302U Electric Double Oven

2 Answers

I have the SC272TB Double Oven. The top oven is fine but the lower one will not stay closed. Whether baking or not, the door seems to pop open just enough to turn the light on. We walk by and press the door closed and sometimes it might actually stay closed but usually it opens again just enough to make the light come on again! I have checked around the door seal and cannot find anything that would cause this and am at a loss for what to do next!

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.

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 :)

I found the solution and I have not had a problem since I did it 6 months ago. Somebody posted a repair that was so simple and inexpensive. Just buy these two magnets from KJ Magnetics for $14 and never a problem again. They come ready for 2 #6 screw so they will mount flush. I never did I just stuck them a the top of the oven doors a magic. I had paid twice before for new hinges only to have someone put a little much weight on the door a pow, light won't go off. the web site, KJMagetics.com and the magnets BX884DCS $7.27 each.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Both oven doors do not close properly. lights stay on & can't heat properly with doors not closing tight. is there an adjustment for these doors?


We have similar Jen Air double oven and with the same problem but only on the lower oven. The doors are interchangeable and the top door fits fine but the lower door will not close completely at the top. It does turn out the light but has never cooked properly. I checked with several appliance repair shops and the hinges are not adjustable, but since one door closes and our other doesn't it is not a hinge problem, just a defective design.

We let this go too long and are out of warranty so I doubt Jennair is going to do anything. I hope someone post a solution but it is clearly not problem with the henges but with the receptacle they go into.

Heat escaping, uneven baking, longer cooking times


Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.

GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off


This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.

Colin, the TCO is located on the back of the oven. It will open L2 to the heating element in the event it is open. If this TC0 opens it will not show any error codes. This is for the 27 inch wall oven models only. Catriver...post back.
