20 Most Recent Bosch HGS442UC Gas Kitchen Range Questions & Answers

Oven doors are designed to have some movement in and out to accommodate sealing against the gasket. If you're not getting a good seal check the condition of the gasket. If it's hard and inflexible you'll need to replace it. About 5-6 years of normal use can make these hard and inflexible. I just looked and Bosch calls this the 'Door Seal' pn 1052639

The broiler and oven burner are the same. The igniter can be easily(relative) replaced. Remember the igniter is ON the entire time the flame is present, so it will fail with time.

For me, I had the same problem. The Solution - I unplugged the oven, then unscrewed the back of the top part and removed it. The control panel's adhesive had failed on one side, so that it came away from the glass. I pressed it back on and held it until it stuck and now it works. I expect it to fail again if my oven gets real hot, so I am looking for "hi-temp rtv" to replace the failing adhesive.

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

The problem is likely a faulty igniter. It's an easy fix, though an expensive part to replace (about $75 from APP). I had the exact problem and found this answer on another site. Just check out your igniter (under the plate on the bottom of your oven.. remove the screws in the back and lift off that plate).. the igniter is a long flat piece that should be glowing red.. if not.. that's your problem. Good luck.

It appear that Bosch stoves are sensitive to the orientation of the hot and neutral. Mine was reversed at the outlet. I changed it to be correct and it fixed the problem

Near your Burner will likely be a metal heater that glows RED HOT next to the gas burner and when the heat is detected the gas is let go to light. A Safety and a way to light the gas. If you look it may glow slightly but needs to glow full bore to light. This is the most common failure. If you get a kit that has Wire Nuts be sure they are Ceramic Wire Nuts due to the heat or the plastic ones will melt off exposing the wires. Good Luck.
