Thermador dual fuel range PRDS364GDUS serial 20110081

I feel like the Shoemaker that his kids all run around barefooted.
I have been putting this off for a long time.
(range is big and heavy)

This was a big mistake buying in the first place,
but I need to move on.




bake will not reach temperature (most of the time)
Broil works
Wiring and bake element checked all OK.

The biggest problem I have is not understanding or
recognizing the controls.

Control knob goes all the way around, so this is not a
strictly mechanical thermostat.
Indicator light showing temperature has been met is
consistent with low temperatures (stays on)

Oven cavity has bulb type thermostat instead of electronic sensor.

It seems obvious that it needs a new Thermostat.

I cannot identify if that is one part or several.

Unit also has a Push button switch to get the Oven mode
on/off/bake/broil/clean/convection bake.

anyone familiar with this system?

I've worked on a few of these but don't have a silver bullet, "It's usually this," kind of an answer for you. Sounds like you're only getting 120vac to the bake element (should be getting 240vac). I would verify that and then use the schematic to trace back the circuit that's missing the other 120vac until you find it.

I PMed you the service manual for this range.

Thanks.

information on this range has been sparse.

I fear that the Tstat is not available.
