Carbon Monoxide from my Thermador AG!
I wanted to share my experience with our 36" AG Thermador range, installed 2009. There is so much carbon monoxide coming out while my oven is on, that if I don't run the hood fan, my CO detector goes off! It's been like this the whole time I've had it. I've spoken to our salesman about it, and he said that you should not have to run the hood just for the oven. Twice I've had a repairman come out to check it, and contrary to what my salesman told me, the repair guys said that you must run the overhead hood-fan when the oven is on, even if you are not using the burners. The last guy called Thermador support, because his CO reader hit 50 when he ran it over the rangetop. (He said he'd never seen it that high.) Thermador support said that it was normal to have that high a reading, and that all brands have this.
Please let me know, does your CO detector go off if you don't run your hood when your AG range oven is on? Is this just MY Thermador, ALL Thermadors, or ALL gas ovens?
We are currently building a new house...you can bet I'm opting for electric wall ovens this time around! ;)
