Oven smells when used for the first time – what to do?

Oven smells when used for the first time – what to do?

Does your oven stink when used for the first time? Don’t worry: a certain “new oven smell” is perfectly normal. If you want to quickly get rid of the strange smell coming from a new appliance, we at Bosch Home Appliances recommend that you start by wiping the appliance with a damp cloth. It also helps to heat the oven on top/bottom heat for 30 minutes at 250°C. This should be enough to get rid of any unpleasant smell coming from the new oven.

If your new oven smells of plastic, please double-check whether you have removed all the packaging in the oven’s interior prior to using it for the first time. This may be the reason why a burnt smell is coming from your new oven.

Do you have any questions about the topic of your oven smelling when used for the first time? You can call our Bosch customer service team for large appliances on <CustSerPhoneNo> (24 hours a day, seven days a week) or schedule a convenient appointment online.
