My wife noticed an odd burnt smell, like plastic not food, coming from the upper oven while cooking. We emptied and looked all about the interior of the oven expecting to find some odd bit of plastic had fallen in. Then while discussing "what now" the control panel made a very loud snap and flash of light -- which tripped the circuit breaker.
I'm thinking that smoke and grease build-up inside the control panel may have arced over, but perhaps there's worse than that awaiting me. This occurred a week or so after running a self-cleaning cycle, but nothing appeared wrong at that time, and the oven had been used at least once more after the cleaning without incident. So I don't know if the cleaning cycle is relevant or not.
I have the "Care and Use Manual" as well as the Installation Instructions, but I was hoping to find an assembly drawing or other way to confirm that simply removing the obvious row of screws on the bottom side of the panel is the right next step towards repair or (likely) replacing the control PCB. The Thermador site was a bust for manuals, too old I guess.
Any advice for the wary but experienced DIY appliance fixer?
