Thermador oven not heating

Thermador oven not heating. With a name like Thermador, performance and quality can be expected to be high.

Therefore, it can be a huge disappointment when your Thermador oven fails to heat up, not to mention a ruined meal.

This is why you need more effective troubleshooting techniques than guesswork and repetition as we examine each possibility for more effective repairs.

While Thermador is known for its superior function and high-quality look, a Thermador oven can still experience some less-than-desirable issues with heating. Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for the Thermador oven, not heating.

Incoming Power Issue

Be sure your oven is plugged in by moving it away from the wall. Look for flipped switches or blown fuses in your electrical panel.

Don’t use an extension cord to power your oven and ensure it has the correct outlet for the number of volts it needs. Make sure the oven outlet is providing the correct voltage with a multimeter.

 Broil element has burned out

To test for continuity, simply place the end of the multimeter on either side of the broil element.

Record what you find, but unfortunately, if you weren’t blessed by the multimeter gods and found that there was no continuity here.

Then it’s probable that your broil element has burned out! Quickly read down to step 3 for instructions on how to complete this repair.

 Faulty Thermal Fuse

If the oven gets too hot, the thermal fuse shuts down. If this is the issue, there isn’t much you can do but wait for it to cool down again.

It’s supposed to turn back on once things have cooled off, so there isn’t usually cause for alarm if this happens.

 A loose or burned wire connection

One of the wires is burnt out and needs to be changed. There might be unattended wiring that has burned in the melting point and need customer’s quick change of apprised on the immediate state of their oven doors.

Replace Oven Control Board

In order to bake or broil something, your oven uses a control board to regulate how much heat goes into your food.

The control board has relays, which are used to distribute power from the wall all of the way down to the heating elements in your oven.

If you think that your control board might be tampered with, first test the heating components because it is not common for them to malfunction.

If they are working properly then the only other thing that could be wrong with the oven is its control board.

Since it is extremely difficult to test the functionality of a control board, it’s best recommended that you spend your time and money by replacing that problematic part with a brand new one.

 Failure of the relay board

Some ovens are equipped with a relay board inside of them. The relay board typically has several relays that allow electrical current to transfer from a circuit to the heating element.

If one or more of these constituent parts fail, the appliance will quickly break and stop allowing electricity to flow into the heating element.

These defective appliances can also cause persistent leaks and therefore should be swapped out for new ones as soon as possible in case you want to prevent potentially costly consequences from occurring.

 Damage Safety Valve

The gas oven safety valve is one of the more important parts of your oven because it works alongside the igniter to provide gas to the burner.

This component rarely fails on its own but there are other components that may be required by the repair shop for testing or replacement.

Before replacing the valve, first test all of the commonly defective oven components especially those that work in tandem with others, like the igniter.

If all of the other components are working properly use a multimeter to test continuity in your safety valve and if none is detected then replacing this part will probably solve your gas oven safety valve problem altogether.

The igniter lacks continuity

If your oven is not heating up properly, the Igniter might be at fault. The Igniter gets extremely hot, allowing it to ignite the gas in your oven.

If you remove the old igniter and replace it with a new one and that doesn’t work try using a continuity tester on it to see if it is working properly or not.

You can replace your defective igniter as soon as possible by simply removing the back of your oven where the main power source is located so you can gain access to the igniter.

Broken Bake Element

When the bake element is heating, it should glow red hot. If the element does not glow red hot, first, inspect the element for holes or blisters; if present, replace the burned-out element.

To test whether or not the bake element has burned out, you can use a multimeter to check for continuity.

If there is no continuity between the two prongs of the elements that protrude from each end when plugged into an electrical outlet (the open circuit) then, yes. it’s time to replace it.
