Most of our ovens use an E14 bulb. A special pack can be ordered from us which includes an E14 bulb and special tool to remove the bulb cover. Always make sure the oven is switched off and cold before replacing the bulb. The tool includes locating lugs to grip the cover. It can then be loosened by twisting and removed. This is a good opportunity to clean the bulb cover. The E14 bulb can then be changed and the cover replaced.

Cleaning and care tips
Do not clean the fiberglass gasket.
Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the rack in the self-cleaning oven. If flat racks are cleaned in the oven during the self-cleaning mode, they will lose their shiny finish and may not glide smoothly. If this happens wipe the rack edges with a small amount of vegetable oil, then wipe off.
Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry or use a glass cleaner.
Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the grill pan and grid in the oven during self-cleaning mode.
Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not use powder cleaning agents, steel wool pads, oven cleaners and other abrasive cleaning materials.

Dusting: Use the green cloth dry for dusting. The static will pick up the dust particles. Cleaning grease and dirt: Fold the green cloth and use damp to remove any grease and dirt. Glass cleaning and polishing: Lightly spray water on the blue cloth and wipe appliance with the cloth. Stainless steel: Wet the green cloth and wipe away any grease. Spray the surface with water and polish with the blue cloth. Always wipe in the direction of the grain. Always make sure your cloths are clean to avoid scratching surfaces. E-cloths (part # 00466148) can be purchased in the Bosch online accessories store.
You can treat the surface with a tested and approved oil impregnated Conditioning Cloth (can be ordered from us) which will assist fingerprint and mark resistance. Some people use baby oil or similar products on stainless steel. However, these products do not work as they attract dust and fluff, causing a residue to form. The same Conditioning Oil as in the cloths can be ordered in a bottle from us. It is food-safe and can be used on surfaces which are in contact with food.
Wipe away spills, pools of oil, and excessive debris before activating the self-cleaning process. Not doing so can cause smoke and possibly a fire-risk. Remove all accessories, racks and broiling pans before activating the self-cleaning process. Never clean oven parts or accessories in the self-cleaning oven. The light in the oven cannot be turned on during the self-cleaning process. The special heat-resistant enamel and the polished components in the oven can become discolored over time. This is normal and does not affect operation. Do not use scouring pads and abrasive cleaners. These items may damage the oven. In double ovens, you can only use the self-cleaning process for one oven at a time.
Remove any deposits with our tested and approved Stainless Steel Cleaning Powder. This will remove dirt and spillages without damaging the surface. Make sure the powder is used on a damp cloth as a ‘paste’ and wipe along the grain of the metal. This product can be ordered from us.
