Do you have the push button switches for the bake oven and does the convection button & the normal bake button work off the same relay? What should the load amps be on the oven element? Is it normal to have a 15° differential from the set point to the actual cabinet temperature? Thermador tech support has been difficult to get tech questions answered. Thanks
Answer Hello Todd,
Take the wattage of the element and divide it by the voltage applied, (240Vac in this case). This will give you the approximate current flow, (amperage) of the circuit. Note this will be approximate because of practical application considerations such as variations in applied voltage, varying resistance of the element and so on. The temperature in an oven compartment is determined by taking an average reading. This is done by recording the high and low temperatures for at least four cycles of the thermostat. This is time consuming but the only way to determine the average bake compartment temperature. When you have recorded the readings you should have four high readings and four low ones. Add these together and divide by 8 for the average temperature. Note that if the door is opened during the test it will have to be started over for an accurate reading. Note that a high "swing" in temperatures is to be expected especially early in the cycle. I did some searching and I'm sorry but it looks like the button switches you are looking for have been discontinued by the manufacturer and no satisfactory substitutions have been provided.
