What To Do When There Are Problems With A Thermador Oven

Thermador ovens are recognized as some of the highest quality appliances that can be used in a kitchen. They even produce a line of commercial ovens that are designed for use in restaurants. If one of these units needs service, then a certified Thermador oven repair technician will be needed. These individuals can be found at companies like Hi-Tech Appliance Repair. Understanding why an oven stops working and how to deal with minor issues can help to keep a Thermador stove working for a very long time.

Oven Heating Elements

If the level of heat inside of an oven is not sufficient to cook food, then there might be a problem with the heating element. Thermador ovens usually have baking and broiling elements. Both work to a small degree when cooking regardless of the settings that are used. One problem that occurs with the heating elements that can be fixed at home is a buildup of food. This can eventually cause the elements to break or chip. Buildup can also clog the terminals stopping the elements from heating properly. If cleaning the elements does not cause the oven to heat, then it is time to call a repair technician.

Stovetop Burners

The stovetop burners are similar to the baking elements except that they are fully exposed and are designed to be removed and cleaned easily. If the burners have stopped heating properly, then the problem could be that the connection point on the end has become coated in food. Another issue could be the wiring that runs to the terminal itself. Any problem with the burners that is not solved by cleaning or replacing the heating element needs to be addressed by certified Thermador oven repair technicians. This is especially true for induction burners that do not have exposed elements.


The thermostat controls the amount of heat that is generated by the oven. A faulty thermostat or sensor can result in elements being deactivated before the correct temperature has been reached. This temperature difference can be very significant. A thermostat and sensor can be replaced in a Thermador oven by a certified repair service. More commonly, however, the thermostat does not need to be replaced and can just be recalibrated by a technician. It is difficult to test if a thermostat is the problem at home without sufficient knowledge of electrical systems.

Electrical Problems

Thermador ovens are designed for convenience in the kitchen. They often combine convection fans, microwaves and other types of components in order to make cooking simple. All of the components in an oven rely on electrical wiring in order to function properly. Issues such as malfunctioning fans, non-functioning or inaccurate display panels and feature that do not work are often the result of a problem with the wiring inside of the oven or behind the unit. Rarely, this can even involve problems with wiring inside of the home. Electrical problems that stop parts of the oven from working need to be handled directly by certified technicians like those available at Hi-Tech Appliance Repair.
