The sensor runs from the control panel, under the cooktop, down the back behind the oven, and then comes through a hole in the back of the oven. You'll need to remove the control panel and the back sheet metal panel so you can push the thermostat out the back, then pull it up through the front of the oven under the cooktop.
It depends on the model number, there are many professional series. But if it goes up then that's the same. You can still go through the back, or you may need to go through the top under the cooktop. Removing the top requires specialty burner tools if it's a sealed gas burner top however because there is a center nut going down each burner base which is size 20mm.
Ah, no need to worry about removing it really, You can cut it on both sides of this channel and just remove the back side and remove the other side. It'll be bundled in with the wires so it won't just remove. But you can just cut it out and then slide the new one through the channel.
Yes unfortunately on that old Thermador unit they just do not make that anymore, the tech that came out was correct you would have to have it repaired at an electronics shop to get it working again..sorry for the news.
