Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

The door-latching mechanism has failed now three times, each time tripping the circuit breaker. The first failure was under warranty, the second failure was on my dime. I refuse to pay for the third failure and will soon junk this very disaappointing Bosch product!

Definite Upgrade

Submitted by George B - 10/27/2021

The BOSCH 500 Series Over-The-Range Microwave we just purchased is a definite upgrade from the 25 year old microwave it replace. It is very stylish, quiet, modern, and easy to operate. A set of simple instructions on how to use the machine was given and is readily available to handle to do the "once in a while" microwaving we may do. The basics are a easy to do. I would highly recommend this model.

Needs improvement

Submitted by Thomas - 10/20/2021

The only complaints are that grease escapes out the top/front vent even though I had it set up and installed for air out the wall. Also, there is no automatic night light schedule option. Only manual on and off.

Great Product for the Price

Submitted by real - 10/15/2021

The size is perfect and the features all that you would ever need and works great. I gave it four stars instead of five due to the interior light. The light comes through a perforated screen so that the inside is sort of a dotted light. Would have been better to have the light with a clear screen. Also the light is behind this perforated screen so no idea how you would ever access should the light have to be changed or fixed.

Flimsy product

Submitted by Our Barndominium Kitchen - 9/12/2021

This microwave feels "flimsy" when you open the door and using it ..... I expected a well built appliance, but my whirlpool in the RV felt tighter and was better built feeling. The touchpad has to be pushed hard to make it register a number and it is out of alignment with the door, twice I have mentioned it to the technician and he has said that's just the way it is. The door feels flimsy when opened or closed and this appliance is also very noisy.

Bosch 500 Series OTR

8/11/2021

Unit installed 2/13/20. Unit stopped working on 1/25/21 no power. Wall plug was alive. Went to Terry's Appliance to report Micro not working. On 2/1/21 serviceman replaced fuse and unit worked for 2 weeks and lost power again. On 2/14/21 called Terry's to report unit lost power again. Called and went to Terry's a number of times begging for service or at least a call back as to when we might see a serviceman. Never heard back. Finally we were told they were ordering a switch and it should be in between 1 - 2 weeks. On 4/12 a serviceman arrived at 4:45 PM and got the unit working. However, whatever he did, to open the door to the unit one had to use two hands and pull very hard, not like prior to his service call. Also, the sensor cook or defrost modes mentioned inside the door did not work. On 7/29/21 Micro lost power again. Went to Terry's that morning to report situation. Never heard back. Have gone there at least 6 times begging for service and being told they would get back to us. Never heard anything from them and today is Aug. 11,2021. I find it very hard to even give the above rating of 1 star after the fiasco this unit has caused. And to think this was our second Bosch Microwave in 12 years since when our house was built we purchased Bosch Stove, Microwave and Dishwasher at that time. We look forward to hearing from you as to how this situation might get resolved.

Over Range Microwave

Submitted by Josie - 7/1/2021

This was a replacement for a similar 6 yr old Bosch microwave we had and the handle broke off, so hope this one lasts longer. The updates include easier fast button for 30 seconds. Love the LED lighting. Number buttons are still a bit tiny, but ok. So far, no real complaints!

Microwave and fan

Submitted by Justin - 6/26/2021

Nice microwave. I wonder about the logic in having a metal rack that if it is not set correctly will fry the unit. Other than that we have been impressed with the oven. The fan is a huge upgrade from our previous one as well.

Broke after 24 months-Microwave worked fine until the unit broke suddenly. Hood exhaust could be stronger, doesn't provide much hood exhaust air flow. Very hard to clean, and got greasy quickly due to poor hood exhaust flow.

VERY Disappointed

Submitted by Homeowner - 5/2/2021

We have a Bosch HMV5053U microwave that's 3 years old. It stopped working. it trips the breaker almost everytime we try to use it. We thought Bosch made quality products. I guess not. They charge for a quality product though. From the other reviews, this is very common, and the fix costs almost as much as replacing it with another brand of microwave.

Bosch 500 Series Microwave HMV5053U

Submitted by Robert - 4/20/2021

Our GE unit quit working after 2 years so we thought we would opt for a higher quality micrfowave this time and bought the Bosch. It is a very solid machine with the touhpad on the left side which eliminates the concern about moving wires in the door. I would have liked to see some "quick" keys for common settings like coffee, popcorn, and even minutes like 1,2,and 5 min. The LED lights are great for over the stove and in the box. It was a very quick retrofit installation which only took a few minutes since the mounting holes matched up with the GE unit.

Prior Review Update

Submitted by Greg - 2/19/2021

Here is my prior one star review, followed by an update. We did a kitchen remodel in 2018 and installed the HMV5053U/01 microwave along with a Bosch oven, cooktop and dishwasher. We also have a Bosch front load washer that we have been using for a number of years. We started using the microwave in August of 2018, 22 months ago, and it has failed. We had the Bosch service person out today and the cost to fix the $500 unit will be $300. The door latch assembly and micro-switches have apparently failed which tripped the electrical cabinet circuit breaker and blew a fuse in the unit. The fuse can only be reached by removing the entire unit from the wall and taking it apart. This is truly a poor design. This has soured me on Bosch and I just hope the rest of our two year old appliances hold up better. Update: Unit was repaired and bac in service on July 24, 2020. Repair cost $314.13. On Feb. 2, 2021 the unit failed again. Service person will return on March 10th. The unit wasv purchased on Feb. 25, 2018 and was installed and in use on June 30, 2018. It worked for 23 months before it failed. After repair it worked for six months. We had to buy a GE counter top unit to use while the Bosch is broken. This will be a period of at least three months if the unit is repaired on the 10th of March. This is simply unacceptable. ZERO stars.

Disappointed Consumer

Submitted by Microwave - 1/21/2021

Apparently like many others, we purchased this microwave because of Bosch's reputation as a high end appliance manufacturer. After two and a half years, the microwave is dead and we have had to have the repair service out twice within a week to attempt repairs. Finally, the repair service said it would require expensive service and parts to fix; if they would be able to fix it at all. My wife called Bosch customer service this morning and was on hold for 45 minutes before someone answered. She spoke with a woman who quickly put her back on hold saying "let me see what we can do," and then hung up on my wife. I am extremely disappointed with Bosch and will not buy another Bosch product.

Not up to other Bosch appliance standards

Submitted by Deborah - 12/25/2020

We purchase this 500 series microwave two and a half years ago as part of a full kitchen remodel. The microwave, the last applicance installed lasted 2 years, 2 months. That's it...After reading many other reviews, you either love this product, or are severly dissappoined with Bosch's committment to design integrity. Have to seriously rethink about replacing this with another Bosch microwave, as I have serious concerns for this product.

Submitted by Bridget - 12/23/2020

Bought this microwave less than two years ago as part of a package of Bosch kitchen appliances during a kitchen remodel. I bought Bosch because I wanted to buy something reliable without spending a fortune. Big mistake. After 18 months, it stopped heating food. Bosch serviceman quoted me $200 over the original purchase price to repair it. Big disappointment.
