Why does my thermador oven says self clean not possible

If your Thermador oven is displaying the message "Self Clean Not Possible," it indicates that the self-cleaning function is currently disabled or unavailable. There are several potential reasons for this message: 1. Oven Door Not Fully Closed: The self-cleaning function typically requires the oven door to be securely closed. If the door is not fully closed or latched, the self-cleaning cycle will not initiate. 2. Oven Door Lock Issue: During the self-cleaning cycle, the oven door is automatically locked for safety reasons. If the door lock is malfunctioning or stuck, the self-clean function may be disabled as a safety measure. 3. Oven Temperature Too High: If the oven's temperature is still too hot from recent cooking, the self-cleaning function will not be enabled. The oven needs to cool down to a safe temperature before self-cleaning can begin. 4. Control Lock Engaged: Some ovens have a control lock feature that prevents accidental changes to the settings. If the control lock is engaged, it can disable the self-cleaning function. Try disabling the control lock to enable self-cleaning. 5. Oven Calibration Needed: If the oven's calibration is off or needs adjustment, it may interfere with the self-cleaning function. Refer to the user manual for instructions on how to calibrate the oven. 6. Internal Malfunction: In some cases, a malfunction within the oven's electronic control system or sensor may cause the "Self Clean Not Possible" message to appear. This could require professional inspection and repair. If you encounter the "Self Clean Not Possible" message and cannot identify the problem, it is best to contact Thermador customer support or a qualified appliance technician for further diagnosis and assistance. They can help pinpoint the specific issue and provide the necessary solutions to enable the self-cleaning function on your Thermador oven.
