Cooktop is not on.
The main switch may have been turned off. Turn the unit on.
Cooktop may not be plugged in. Check to see if it is plugged in.
Check to see if you are experiencing a power failure.
Power may not be flowing to the socket. Check if electricity is present at the outlet in question by using another small object that runs on electricity (e.g. hairdryer). If electricity is not present, consult a qualified electrician.
The fuse may have blown or the circuit breaker may be tripped. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
Induction cooktop feels hot
The induction cooktop may get hot depending on the length of cooking time and temperature. While the induction cooktop itself does not generate heat, it does get hot from cooking pots and pans radiating heat onto the glass cooktop.
Routine maintenance for your induction cooktop.
We recommend cleaning the glass cooktop when it becomes unsightly. Be sure the glass cooktop is cool before cleaning it. Wipe away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and therefore difficult to remove
View our How-to-Videos on the Bosch YouTube Channel to learn how to clean a glass cooktop and how to clean stainless steel.
Stainless steel conditioning cloths can be purchased in the Bosch Accessories & Parts Store (part number 00311134).

Induction vs. Gas and Electric
In general, induction cooktops boil water and warm up food much faster than gas and electric cooktops.
Induction cooktops are also more energy efficient than gas and electric because the heat is distributed directly to the pot. This results in better simmering, less heat in the kitchen, and more precision when cooking.
Induction cooktops are ideal for heating up food quickly, boiling water quickly and precise cooking techniques. The AutoChef feature also adds to the cooking experience.
Advantage of owning an induction cooktop with higher wattage.
Induction cooktops with higher wattage have more power, which means that it heats pans faster.
Ventilation required for induction cooktops.
The ventilation required for induction cooktops is the same as that required for any other type of cooktop. In general, it is ideal to have the ventilation hood extend 3” on both sides of the cooktop for optimal performance.
Installing an oven below the induction cooktop.
Any Bosch oven can be installed below any Bosch cooktop (gas, electric, or induction). The following standards are required for installation:
- Countertop height of 36”
- Toe kick height of 4.75” (includes base plate)
Please refer to the installation manuals for the cooktop and oven for additional information on feasibility.
