I have a BOSCH HBT 550 oven. Yesterday, due to a storm I lost

This answer was rated:

I have a BOSCH HBT 550 oven. Yesterday, due to a storm I lost power for a few minutes. Although the power has been restored, the oven is not working. The timer is blinking with all ZEROs and the word AUTO. I tried turning on the oven but nothing happen, the fan did not come on and no heat. I did turn off the oven at the fuze box and then turn it on again, no change. How can I reset the oven to get it working?

Hi Michael, thanks

Please give me a few moments to research this, and I will post back to you

ok will wait to hear from you

Hi Michael.

Did you buy this in France?
Unfortunately the manual is only available in French, which I dont read, apologies.

However, if the power has been interrupted, the clock needs to be reset and the AUTO time feature taken off, so it needs to be set up as you did when it was new.

If you dont have the manual to do this, can you recheck the model number for me please?

Let me know how you get on

In the meantime,

I am corresponding with you from France. I have the manual but it does not explain how to "reset". It ells me if the oven will not work "Auto" flashes, press the "manual" button which I did and had no effect.


It also sais if my oven will not light off, check the fuze. The fuze in my fuze box is working because I am getting the flashing "clock and auto".

Hi Michael.

At the very beginning of the book, it should tell you how to set the clock when you first install the oven, when its new.

Does it tell you to cancel the Auto first, or does it tell you to set the clock first?
If you cant turn off the Auto, try setting the time first and tell me what happens

OK, I reset the clock and now the oven is working. Thanks. What happens now? You process payment?
