Bosch Oven Not Self Cleaning

Bosch Oven Not Self Cleaning. If your Bosch oven’s self-cleaning function isn’t working correctly, you might have to spend a lot of time cleaning it out by hand.

The self-cleaning feature of the washing machine may not be working for a variety of reasons. Find out if you can do anything about the issue by using this guide to discover what might be causing it and determine what might be causing it.

Bosch Oven Not Self Cleaning

Bosch Oven Not Self Cleaning. Bosch ovens use a latch that checks whether the oven door is completely closed before firing up the self-cleaning program.

If it’s not, there will be no heat, and you’ll be unable to activate this function manually as it’s blocked by default.

Another sign of a misaligned latch is if you can feel some hot air coming out, then it means the doors are not in line.

The following are some issues with Bosch ovens when they don’t self-clean.

Issue With Door Switch

An oven cannot lock when there is a problem with the door switch.

The door switch is often part of the circuit responsible for activating the locking mechanism during a self-clean cycle. If there’s no locking capability, then this usually means that the door switch is faulty.

By using a multimeter, test for continuity to determine whether or not it works. If the door switch does not work properly, it must be replaced immediately.

Problem With Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is a safety feature that protects the oven from overheating. If the oven gets too hot, the thermal fuse trips to shut off power in an attempt to cool it down.

The thermal fuse does not need to be reset and should be checked for continuity as soon as it stops working in order to avoid extreme heat loss in your equipment.

Test the thermal fuse by using a multimeter on your equipment and looking for “clicks” that indicate continuity where there once wasn’t any.

Lock The Door Hinges

Both hinges have manual locks that can prevent the door from closing correctly. Open the oven door and locate the manual button on each of the hinges.

This button will be in an unlocked position when it is pushed toward you and in a locked position when it’s pulled away.

Make sure to push both buttons away from you so that they’re fully turned off.

Also, make sure there aren’t any other buttons that don’t turn off when the lid lock is activated.

Thermostat With Temperature Control

The oven thermostat is used to regulate the temperature of your oven during a self-cleaning cycle.

The oven thermostat will send voltage to the heating circuit and make sure the temperature doesn’t go overboard while cleaning. It’s possible for this to work properly for baking and broiling but not self-cleaning.

The reason is that this is a very complex device and it can be hard to pinpoint a faulty one, so if you suspect yours might be broken, we recommend that you consider replacing it as soon as you can.

Assemblies For Door Lock Motors And Switches

When the oven’s self-cleaning cycle activates, the door lock switch deactivates the door lock motor in order to keep the oven door from opening during the self-cleaning session.

The defective activation of this switch may prevent the oven door from unlocking once the self-cleaning cycle is done.

Check your owner’s manual for instructions on the removal of certain screws or panels to go about opening the oven door.


What is the procedure for setting my Bosch oven to self-clean?

Make sure that the oven and all of its contents are inside the oven at this time. Close the oven door and select a cleaning setting. The longer your selection, the hotter it goes up to 485°C.

When your cleaning cycle is complete, you may have a hot oven glass door as a result but do not touch it.

Does my Bosch oven have a self-cleaning feature?

Thanks to our ovens with the Pyrolytic self-cleaning function, now you can enjoy a clean oven for longer.

Pyrolytic cleaning is the process of destroying organic compounds in an extremely high-temperature environment.

When excessive heat is applied for a prolonged period, it leaves a layer of carbon on the surface of your oven that acts as a kind of protective barrier.
