1 of 2

I have the original installation instructions for the CMT21. The rough-out drawing calls for an opening 55-1/4" tall by 24-1/4 " wide. It further says the distance from the front face of the cabinet to the rear wall must be 24".

A vent pipe must be connected to the oven exhaust at the top. The hole in the top board above the stove should be 7" diameter, and centered 20-1/2" back from the front face of the cabinet and 7-7/8" to the right of the cabinet centerline.

2 of 2
Horizontal 2x4 supports (two of them) should be installed flush with the bottom of the cabinet opening, one on each side. Use vertical pieces of 2x4 at the front and rear of each horizontal to elevate the horizontal members from the floor.

The nominal height of the bottom of the cabinet opening is 9", but this is up to the user.

Preferred location of conduit box is above the oven: box bottom is 2-1/2" above the top of the cabinet opening and centerline of box is 13" to the left of the right edge of the cabinet opening. (Conduit box is presumably a 4x4.) Could also be mounted below the oven.

The oven's installation brackets are mounted on each side of the cabinet opening, with the bottom of the bracket 37-5/8" up from the bottom of the cabinet opening.

I have a Thermatronic 2. CM21. I went to use the microwave and heard a loud click up behind the control panel. It sounded like a fuse popping.
Now my microwave does no work. Is there a fuse up there? How do I get to it? Where do I get a new one from? If I have to replace the oven......do they make a stainless steel 24" double oven with microwave ability anymore or was Thermadore ahead of their time?
Thank you. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

We have a model CMT Thermidor also, and we never noticed it has a microwave built in; to the upper unit. How can this be - the whole thing is made of metal. I thought that metal was bad? We tried it with a bowl of water, and the microwave light in the upper right comes on - but the water does not heat.

Do we need a magnetron? What IS a magnetron?

Help!

We have the Thermatronic II ovens manufactured in 1984, which we are removing. Any tips on doing this safely and without damaging the ovens? The fuse box is easily accessible.

Re microwave - we had ours repaired years ago - but it didn't last, something to do with incorrect venting causing condensation. Since the repair was $500, we just got a separate microwave.

I have a Thermador CMT21. The lower oven is only getting 120V instead of 240V. The wire on the right side is not hot. I need a wiring schematic or service manual to find next point in wiring to test. Do you have service manual and wiring diagram? serial # 716067

Sorry, we do not provide tech manuals / wiring diagrams to non techs. I would be having a professional check this unit that knows this brand, these are more complicated than a normal oven...

I have the CMT 21- micro started to make louding clicking noise- odor of something burning- saw some light behind panel ( hopefully not fire) shut off breaker- was told no parts around my question is would it be safe to clean both ovens as they still seem ok.

No way, it is time to call in some one that works on these.
It is VERY common for wiring to burn and switches to short in console area, there for it is unsafe to even turn the breaker on.

Why would anyone think it would be safe to self clean the ovens after a control panel caught on fire.....call out a professional that works on this brand and do not even THINK about turning that breaker on....if no parts are available for this unit would suggest replacing it... ???

Turn the breaker off to the unit and if it is gas turn the gas off also till you can get someone out to look at it that knows that brand....

What comparable double electric ovens are currently being used to replace Thermadore Thermatronic II ( overall measurements are 25 3/8 W X 55 7/8 L x 23 1/4 D/ rough opening 24 1/4w x 55 1/4L X 24D)?...I am having a difficult time finding the best fit because the cabinet outside width is limited to 26 5/8"... I would like to have at least a 27" wide ovens...Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

All I can suggest is to measure the opening existing for the current oven then find an oven that uses the same cut out opening, you can look on-line, users manuals or instillation instructions can be found..... or call the stores to see if they have something that fits the opening or is smaller. If cannot cut it larger can always trim around the new one if the replacement is smaller...we do not know cut out sizes of ovens, we just repair them.

Well the manuals do not have the instillation instructions, the model number tag should give you the voltage listings for the unit...most likely 220-240 volts on a 50 amp breaker, to be sure, call an electrician or appliance tech out to connect it for you....

Depends on the codes in your area, an electrician in your area will be familiar with the requirements, and make sure your service panel is up to the task.
