Very Happy

published

Very Happy- I purchased a HBA63S4.1A just over 3 years ago. It replaced a fully functioning oven ( not BOSCH ) that was over 20 years old. There was a fault with the oven, but Bosch fixed it for free - very good service.

Purchased in February 2016.

Good oven, but element failed shortly out of warranty

published

We are faily happy with the oven and it cooks well, however, the main element in the fan force section burnt out after only about 2-3 years service. We had to have it replaced and the spare parts are very expensive and when the element was being replaced, some of the screws are already rusty and parts of the oven body are corroding away..

Purchased in November 2016.

Love this oven

published

We had this oven in a previous house and decided to install the same one when we recently renovated our kitchen. It looks great, is easy to use and easy to clean thanks to the pyrolytic function. Importantly, I really like the way this cooks. We do a lot of roasting and this cooks perfectly in minimal time. We did consider the Serie 8 model however didn’t feel like we needed the extra bells and whistles. For the price, this oven was great value.

We have bought and own many Bosch products but this is disappointing. Pyrolytic cleaning has failed.

published

We own Bosch dishwashers, hot water systems and washing machines, thus we purchased the Self Cleaning Bosch oven from The Good Guys and it's been a fantastic oven. We have only used the Pyrolytic function maybe five or six times (after cooking pork roasts etc) of which the function cleans well - but we went to use it the other day and it fails to activate. We have read all the posts on here and see others have had quite a few faults. We thought this oven would last for more than 5 or 6 years as it wasn't cheap and repair people don't seem to want to know about it.. Have to think twice next time we purchase an oven as to whether to spend the extra dollars on Bosch is worth it. :(

Just an update: Bosch customer service out of 'Good will' have resolved our issue with the oven and the technician who attended was extremely knowledgeable and repaired the oven back to working order. Thank you both!

SPARKS FLY!!!!Beware of Bosch Series 6 ovens!

published

We have purchased Bosch products for over 10 years but no more. I have a registered Series 6 HBA63S451A 60 cm Built-in Oven purchased from Harvey Norman Fyshwick ACT. Just as the warranty has lapsed the oven completely blew today with a loud bang and "SPARKS" flying everywhere!!!! Very dangerous.
This happened while "TURNING OFF" the Pyrolytic function. That’s right, not turning it on, not during, but turning it off. Even sparks. WOW!!!! I presume the circuit board is fried!

Very disappointed with Bosch! Typical of a major appliance dying just out of warranty!!!

Quality, stylish and functional

published

The oven cooks beautifully. Temperature is consistent and well distributed throughout the oven. It pulls air in rather than push it out making it an interesting feature though haven't really noticed any benefit from it (nor any negative). One minor annoying issue is that when you stand too close in front of the oven (presumably) blocking air flow, it sets off a beeping alarm, even when the oven is off. Maybe there is a way to disable this, but I haven't found it yet

After having these appliances for over 2 years now...thought id review them again. Still very happy with both items. The cooktop is still brilliant to use....even if the largest zone is getting slightly scratched and discoloured from use. The oven is still great too...
Used the pyroytic function lots of times...and still never had a problem!
Would still recommend them both!

Worst oven

published

Worst thing I ever did was buy this oven. First use the glass smashed. I reported to store who I bought who told me to deal with Bosch directly. Very bad experience dealing with Bosch also. Advised this is a minor fault and after 4 weeks they replaced glass only. We have now used oven 4 times and last night the glass smashed again and food (being steak) thrown in bin. I'm now going to fair trading and will be demanding full refund. As far as I'm concerned this is not good enough. We were very fortunate that there was no major injuries.

Cracked internal glass door

published

First time using self cleaning pyrolitic function. Have cleaned manually previously as even though bought thinking this function would be great, was just unsure. (OLD school thinking). Anyway thought I'd give it a go. Followed instructions as per manual. Loud bang about 30mins into clean. Inside glass panel major crack spanning right across width of panel. Not happy at all. Oven has been superb until this happened.

Wouldn't buy anything else!

published

Did my research and found this oven to be top notch. Not the cheapest but one the best on the market. Had it for 8 years with not single issue and we use it constantly. The self cleaning function is amazing. Leave it to clean overnight, then use a moist rag to wipe away the 'dust'. Highly recommended.

Light not working

published

After using the self cleaning feature the oven light failed to come on. Replaced the globe, still not on. Called service and has been diagnosed as a faulty circuit board. All other function working OK. Quote to have the light working again $426.80. An excessive amount of money to have the light again in the oven.

Inner glass oven door cracked.

published

Q1 yes Q2 Performs as well as former not so expensive ovens. Extremely disappointed as stove was not installed till 2013 after new kitchen completed in our new purchase of a home. Have used pyrogenic clean only twice. After cooking evening meal of baked chicken there was no breakage but following evening when attempting to remove a rack noticed severe breakage. We feel we paid a substantial sum for a brand we considered superior to others but feel the price of the inner glass (seemingly a common fault) unacceptable and feel another brand replacement
more appropriate if bosch dose not come to the party and renew the glass.

Poor construction. Pyro cracked glass first time used. Buyer beware

published

Purchased this oven in 2013 and used the pyro function for the first time today. An hour into cleaning and the glass has cracked. Called up Bosch and they said its out of warranty and I would have to fill out forms explaining myself again and plead with them to fix this for me.

This product is not doing what its meant to do which is self clean.

Stay away and spend your money elsewhere.

Still waiting for someone to do something about this. Got a msg from Bosch that some will contact me 2 weeks ago and still waiting....

Internal oven door glass cracked after self clean.

published

Buyers Beware: Ran the Self Cleaning Function today and 30 minutes Into the Cycle I heard a loud sound! Looked closely at the door panel and to my surprise the internal glass panel contained a crack stretching the width of the panel. An online search revealed that other buyers have also reported glass panels cracking.
I had no issues the first time I ran the self cleaning cycle. I followed the instruction manual on both occasions. The oven is just under 3 years old & as good as new.
Will report this incident to Bosch for a manufacturing defect.
Hope I wont have a battle on my hands trying to resolve this matter.
Will think twice about running the self cleaning function again!

Constantly cracking glass

published

We bought this oven in 2013 for almost $1700. The glass cracked in 2015, days outside the warranty period and again recently (2016). Both incidents occurred when drops of cold water/sauce came into contact with the glass door. She made numerous complains with Customer Service but unfortunately there was little support provided. She ended up repairing it for $400 each time. It's extremely disappointing for a reputable brand like Bosch to have such a poor quality product at such a high price. One cannot help but wonder if the product is defective.

I want to clean my oven. I have cleaned the door oven glass but there is still a light brown mark which is apparently on the inside of the of the glass. The mark is about 75cms square, its is not very noticeable but I can still see it. Do I have to take the oven door glass off and clean this mark off or will it be okay to clean it with it still there?
