Question about Bosch Ovens

Open Question

My Bosch combi oven HBC84K5 is fantastic to use but I cannot keep it clean. Everything I cook in it seems to weld to the surfaces. The instructions say do not use anything abrasive, wipe is with detergent and a soft cloth - which doesn't do a thing. I have tried Barkeepers friend, several different detergents, a spray oven cleaner from Lakeland etc but to no avail. There is no self clean mode and as the instuctions say no steam cleaning - I'm foxed. Can you help?

self cleaning is sometimes a cycle called PYRO clean / look for the setting with a really high temp. self cleaning is a programmes require a massive amount of heat and will smoke a lot when on , so dont be alarmed! most oven when on self cleaning mode will automaticly lock the door due to the high heat involved in the process. so remember to remove pans etc. from inside.

Hello. I want to help you. I can understand why you did what you did. Now though I want you to forget about the open cleaner and just set the self cleaner again and let it run its course. get back to me if it won't let you do that as there are other things you can do then.

Oven cleaning instructions


Look at the finish of the inside surface. If it looks dirty then it should be cleaned. You can use some foam products such as EasyOFF. Instructions are on the can. Follow them and don't breathe any of the fumes that propagate in the air. Keep a window open, just in case.

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

The oven keeps beeping and displaying F10 on the screen when we try to cook anything.


HI. this is a oven temp sensor failure notice. you will need to check the wires leading from the temp sensor to the control. if the wires are in good condition and , the sensor harness is not welded, replace the temp sensor asap.
