Question about Bosch HES 252/ HES 256 Electric Kitchen Range
Self cleaning was activated in the middle of the night by roaches which have enjoyed crawling across the board on the top of the range - where the display is.
By 3:00pm in the afternoon I heard something pop or crack so I turned off the range at the circuit breaker.
Even after the range cooled down it remained locked for days.
Since then I have taken the range apart and cleaned it fairly thoroughly.
The display on the control panel reads error 43 - and the little "lock" icon displays.
I took off the range top and systematically removed at least five of the eight or so leads to the motor that latches the oven door. The "lock" icon went away. Then I turned on the oven and it would start heating. However, the second the oven sensed it was heating - when the temperature would logically display 110 vs the starting temperature of 100 degrees - the error 43 message would return and the oven shut down - stopped heating.
Even though I kept removing wires from the latch motor the oven would only start to heat for a few seconds and then stops.
The question is which board controls the sensing? and do I need to replace it?
