    SEM272B, SEM302B, SEMW272B and SEMW302B. The ovens have date codes

    contact BSH Home Appliances immediately to schedule an inspection and

    John,

    Thank you!

    For some reason my subscription was deactivated and I missed this one.

    I have a builder that I do QA for, all Thermador ovens and micros, he's going though his receipts tomorrow to check if any are on the list.

    He sends his thanks to you as well.
