Re: Bosch Oven
I replaced the Stove/Oven/Range Control Board and we are still experiencing the same problem. After installing Control Board the oven worked. Upon the second time using the oven, the probe indicator went on. I disconnected electrical power to reset computer. The oven worked. Third attempt to use oven, probe indicator went on again. Any other suggestions. I don't know if this is related, but after installing control board we now smell gas. I'm replacing gas hose and resealing all connections and hopefully that will eliminate gas smell.
PS...As you suggested, I found nothing as far as available parts labeled "oven computer". Did I replace the right part?
I unplugged unit again and oven worked. Baked twice today with oven shut down in between baking and oven restarted without unplugging. Most likely has nothing to do with it, but the oven didn't cool down completely. Will try after cooling. My wife wants her '50's gas stove back.
Follow up re: stove....contacted Bosch. Unit needs to be unplugged for minimum of 20 minutes to reset the control board. The stove now works...today anyway.
PS...you were right about washer...haven't tried refrigerator yet.
not so fast! told you when my wife would use it, it wouldn't work. I just tried this morning without unplugging and it didn't work. It's doing the exact same thing as day one.
Remember it all started after a stove cleaning. Could the extreme heat of the cleaning damaged the probe sensor/connector on the stove wall? I can't beleive that the new control board is faulty and doing the exact same thing the old one was doing or it wouldn't do anything at all. I think it's something else.
If you have nothing to suggest...guess I have to make that dreaded expensive service call.
It is the meat probe message that is displayed on the unit. Not the oven heat sensor. I'll do as you suggest. We've never used the meat probe anyway. We won't miss it. Will let you know.
Clearly marked and easily removed probe connection...tested stove without unplugging...it worked! I probably should have told you we don't use the probe and you may have suggested earlier. If there is a problem, eliminate the source, especially if it is useless...brings to mind my wife...joking...still need someone to cook my dinners!
