Thermador Refrigerator Error Code E11
Error code E11 on your Thermador refrigerator signifies a software or firmware error in the display module. This code indicates a communication breakdown between the appliance’s control system and the display module. When this error occurs, it can lead to inaccurate temperature readings, unresponsive controls, or even a blank display.
Diagnosing the Issue:
Before proceeding with any repairs, it’s essential to identify the problem accurately. Here’s how you can diagnose error code E11:
