Question about Bosch Ovens
My fan oven has just stopped working - the fan is working as there is a lot of cool air blowing out, but no heat. Does this mean that the element has broken, and will this be expensive to fix? It is now over 3 years old and I don't have breakdown insurance.
This does not mean your element is broken. Although it could be. Call Bosch and ask them if the unit has a pressure switch (you will need the model number). Pressure switches are more common on Gas ovens, but it might have one. If the pressure switch is not being activated by the fan, that could be the problem. It could be a contactor, it could be your power switch. It could be a break in the wiring. Or it could be your thermostat, or it could be the element. Service companies usually charge you for the cost of traveling to your place and around here hourly rates from $65-125 per hour for labor. It could take up to two hours to find out what the cause (or causes of the problem are) depending on how thorough they are. There could be a return trip charge as well if they need to order parts. And the cost of parts as well. you could be looking at anywhere from $300 to $1200 dollars depending on how many components might be damaged and the cost of the parts. If you want to save some money in the future, always check your fan blade to make sure it is free of debris (especially tin foil) and make sure the motor on the back of the oven has some clearance from the wall so it can cool itself.
