We have a Thermador Double Oven, Model # SCD302 that has served us well until earlier this morning.  While in use I noticed the display dimmed to about half of the normal brightness.  The display is still visible if we shut the light off in the kitchen, but in full sunlight or with many lights on the display is barely visible.  The interior lights work well, the oven heats, the convection works....

Any suggestions short of calling in the BIG$$ Thermador Repair People???

Thanks.

Thanks for the guidance.

I am looking inside the area where the board sits, already removed the screw to allow the board free but there is not enough slack to pull it from the cavity to disconnect the various leads.  Is there a trick to getting better access to this area without removing the 300 pound double oven from the cabinet?  Or is the normal procedure to blindly pull leads and try to hook them back up? 

:shock:

Or is it possible to only replace the digital display?

Welcome to the wild, wacky world of Thermadore appliances brought to you by Iranian appliance engineers who never lifted a tool in their miserable lives. (I'm not joking-- everytime I've called Thermadore tech support, I got some Iranian name "Hamid," or something.)

Thermadore, like Viking, has a nasty habit of designing their wall ovens such that they need to be pulled entirely out of the wall for most repairs. Looks like this is another one.

  The last thermador wall oven I worked on only needed to be slid about 1/3.  That was enough to remove the top service panel and gain entry into the electrical compartment behind the console.   Display board "sounds like" a slam dunk, but............... This is a thermador and nothing is what it seems.

Let us raise our beer mugs to the bot-bellied, buck-toothed Buddha that this is the case here.

Amen.

Thank you Samurai, I think :? .  Did we try the "Power it down for a little while test" yet?

If you don't mind my asking, how did you end up replacing the display? We also have a SCD302 double oven, and the same thing happened to it. Did you have to pull the oven all the way out of the wall?

We ended up having thermador come out and make the repair.  They did not have to pull the unit.... If I had know that I would have bought the parts on here and done it myself!

If this happens to anyone else, I found a fix on another forum, and it worked for me....

I took just the display out...not the circuitboard that is located behind the plenum. It involves removing the touchpad controller. Then the display itself has 3 screws holding it in place.

I then replaced 3 capacitors....the two 470 uf's and the 68 uf (all 35 V). They are all grouped together at one end of the board. The originals were rated at 105 deg C. I was able to buy 2 470 uf's at 125 deg C, but the only 68 uf I could find was still 105 deg C. Th ethinking is that the heat from the ovens causes the capacitors to degrade over time. Watch the polarity when replacing them...the light stripe down the side of the new capacitor should be in the same orientation as the old one.

I bought the components at Mouser Electronics for a grand total of about $4. The shipping was more than the cost of the capacitors.

Unfortunately, my digital camera was at work, but I can take digital pictures when I get the camera, and it is self explanatory as to how to remove the components and resolder.

I am not a proficient solder iron user, but the whole repair took me less than 30 minutes, and the display is as good as new.
