  • No, this is not necessary. All modern ovens require that the oven door be closed while broiling. This reduces the amount of heat in the kitchen.

     
  • We recommend cleaning the oven exterior and interior when it becomes unsightly. Wipe away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and difficult to remove. Be sure to wipe away pools of oil and excessive soil/debris in the oven before activating the oven’s self-cleaning feature. Not doing so can cause smoke and possibly a fire.

    Stainless steel conditioning cloths can be purchased in the Bosch Accessories & Parts Store (part number 00311134).

        

    Please also refer to the OVENS – CLEANING & CARE SECTION for additional information.

     
  • Replace or reinsert the light bulb if loose or defective. Use gloves or a small wash cloth when handling the light bulb because touching it with your fingers may deposit oils on it and thus cause it to burn out prematurely. 

    The bulb may have burned out. Buy a replacement bulb.

  • All models have slightly different instructions. If you own two wall ovens, you cannot self-clean both ovens at the same time. Please refer to your Use & Care Guide to learn how to self-clean your oven.

     
  • No, we do not recommend using chemical cleaners in self-cleaning ovens. The porcelain surface is smooth and chemical cleaners may cause surface damage.

     
  • Yes. However, two wall ovens cannot be self-cleaned at the same time.

     
  • Turn the circuit breaker off, wait 5 minutes, and then turn it back on. Next, run the oven for 5 minutes. If the error message does not go away and the oven does not work, please schedule a service visit.

    In the future, keep the exhaust baffle at the bottom of the oven and the latch opening clean. Blockages in these areas can restrict air circulation, thus causing this error message to occur.

    Error E118 does not apply to 2014 models (models that end with "51UC" or "61UC").

    How to activate the oven’s self-cleaning process: Wipe away spills, pools of oil, and excessive debris before activating the self-cleaning process. Not doing so can cause smoke and possibly a fire. Do not clean oven parts or accessories in the self-cleaning oven. The light in the oven cannot be turned on during the self-cleaning process. The special heat-resistant enamel and the polished components in the oven can become discolored over time. This is normal and does not affect operation. Do not use scouring pads, abrasive cleaners and commercial oven cleaners (such as EasyOff®). These items may damage the oven. Remove all accessories, racks and broiling pans before activating the self-cleaning process. In double ovens, the self-cleaning process is only available for one oven at a time.

    To clean the flat rack: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the rack in the self-cleaning oven. If flat racks are cleaned in the oven during the self-cleaning mode, they will lose their shiny finish and may not glide smoothly. If this happens wipe the rack edges with a small amount of vegetable oil, then wipe off.

    To clean telescopic racks: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Avoid getting cleansing powder or residue in the telescopic slides. Re-lubricate the telescopic slides as needed by using high-temperature food-grade lubricants. Do not clean the rack in the oven during self-cleaning mode.

    To clean the broiling pan and grid: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the broiling pan and grid in the oven during self-cleaning mode.

    To clean the fiberglass gasket: Do not clean the fiberglass gasket.

    To clean glass surfaces: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry or use glass cleaner.

    To clean painted surfaces: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not use powder cleaning agents, steel wool pads, oven cleaners and other abrasive cleaning materials.

    To clean porcelain surfaces: Immediately wipe up acid spills like fruit juice, milk and tomatoes with a dry cloth. Do not use a moistened sponge or cloth on hot porcelain. When the oven is cool, clean it with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. It is normal for porcelain to show fine lines with age due to exposure to heat and food.

    To clean stainless steel: Wipe with the grain when cleaning stainless steel. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleaning agent or stainless steel cleaner with a soft cloth. Wipe dry to avoid water marks. Do not use cleaning materials that contain chlorine since it is corrosive to stainless steel. Warning: Some stainless steel cleaners are known to have negative effects on materials other than stainless steel. Make sure to apply stainless steel cleaner to stainless steel components only! Stainless steel conditioning cloths can be purchased in the Bosch Accessories & Parts Store (part number 00311134).

        

     
  • Turn the oven off at the circuit breaker and wait five minutes. Turn the circuit breaker back on and the oven should reset itself and be operable.

     
  • Does the oven display show error codes E115/E215 or E101/E/201?

    • If yes, please schedule a service visit.
    • If no, please perform a “temperature reset”. Please refer to the Use & Care Guide to learn how to do this on your appliance.

     
  • When fatty foods are cooked in the oven (e.g. roasts), a certain amount of fat will be deposited onto the grill element. The next time that the grill is turned on this fat will burn off with an acrid smell. Leave the oven door closed during the grill warm-up process (5 to 10 minutes) and by that time most of the smoke should have dissipated.

     

     
  • Be sure the control surface is clean and dry. Touch the center of the touch key using the flat part of your finger.

    Are parts of the display/controls not working or missing?

    • If yes, turn the oven off at the circuit breaker and wait five minutes. Turn the circuit breaker back on and the oven should reset itself and be operable. If this does not solve the problem, please schedule a service visit. 

    Is the whole display not working or missing? If yes, open the oven door and see if the oven lights are working or not.

    • If the lights are working, please schedule a service visit.
    • If the lights are not working - turn the circuit breaker off, wait 5 minutes, and then turn it back on. If the display still does not work after turning the circuit breaker back on, schedule a service visit.

     
  • All our ovens have a ventilator fan, which keeps the oven housing cool. The ventilator fan will continue to run (even after the oven has been turned off) until the oven has cooled sufficiently. This could be 30 minutes or more depending on the cooking temperature used.

     
  • No. Please refer to your Use & Care Guide to learn how to self-clean your ovens.

     
  • This is normal. Do not block the vent.

     
  • Allow the oven to cool before running the self-clean feature. Always wipe away loose soils/debris or heavy spills before running self-clean. Remove the racks and all other accessories before self-cleaning. Set the oven for the maximum self-clean time if the oven is badly soiled.

     
  • Check for any obstructions in and around the oven door. Remove any obstructions that you find.
