Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The error 43 on a bosch range is a door latch switch or board problem, the board is reading the switch as abnormal so either the switch assembly is bad or the board is bad, if you have a meter and the knowledge to use one let me know and I give you the diagnostic information to figure out which it is, however if you do not I would recommend you have a technician come out and diagnose the issue for you before you go spending money on parts that are not needed, unless you just want to replace both parts and be done with it. Let me know which and I will get you the replacement part numbers, diagnostic info etc;, In the meantime please read below:
