Self cleaning ovens & touch pads: A bad combo?
The electronic touch pad controls on my 6 year-old Thermador convection wall oven just bit the dust a day after I used the self-cleaning function. Repair is costing $800. Repairman advises clients NEVER to use self-clean because he sees this happening all of the time, across all brands. In his view, nobody is making electronic control panels that can withstand self-clean temperatures over time. Grrrrrrr.
