If your Bosch microwave is not heating or if it’s overheating, you have come to the right place. In this short article, we are going to talk about the causes of these problems and what to do about them.
Bosch Microwave Will Not Heat
The reason your Bosch microwave is not heating may be the result of a bad diode. If the diode in a microwave burns, the magnetron will not be receiving enough voltage for it to operate. This makes the microwave stop heating.
The diode will need to be inspected and replaced. However, since some components in the microwave (such as the magnetron) can house a dangerous amount of electricity, the replacement of the diode should be carried out by a licensed technician to prevent risk of shock.

Bosch Microwave Overheating
The common cause of this problem is no ventilation. If an object is obstructing the microwave or if the microwave is too close to the wall, it could result in overheating.
Check if there are any objects you placed near the microwave that could be obstructing the ventilation. If the microwave is too close to the wall, pull it further away. If after doing these things the problem persists fan may be faulty.
Note that if you cook your food for a long period of time, it is possible that your microwave will overheat and shut down, also check if this is the case.
If it isn’t you may have a faulty fan. The fan regulates the temperature in the microwave while the food is cooking. Without the fan, it’s easy for the microwave to overheat. To know about the causes of frequent microwave problems click here.
