Bosch Complaint - Bosch appliances - Kitchen appliances
We have had terrible luck with our Bosch appliances.
Rollers wear out because they erode in the spray. Need to be changed every 2 years at a cost of about $60.
Original cost $1000.
Automatic gas ignitors flaky since day 1. About 50% of the time they don't work at all. If they are working, they won't shut off when using 2 of the burners. Consequently we only use half of the cooktop.
Original cost $1100.
Repaired at least 5 times. Replaced door springs at a cost of $185. (not a misprint!) Replaced 2 oven lights at a cost of $60. Uses very nonstandard bulbs. Repaired cooling fan twice. Repaired selector switch twice. Part cast $90.each time. Repaired display board as the quality of construction is so poor that merely pressing the timer buttons will break supports on the board. Cooking performance very slow. Takes over an hour to preheat and no light or anything to tell you when the oven has reached the right temperature.
Original cost $1400.
Don't be fooled by the fact these appliances are made in Germany. They are extremely poorly designed and very unreliable.
We got them because they are very nice looking and we thought that "German engineering" meant quality.
