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

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. 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.

VERY Disappointed

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

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

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

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.

SueH 1/11/2021

I like my new microwave. It took a while to move from one brand to another without having to think about which button to push next! But it has multiple features that are easy to use,e.g.melting butter without having it splatter all over the place

Not up to other Bosch appliance standards

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.

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.

Defective Door Switch Renders Microwave Unusable

disapponted 11/15/2020

We purchased a full set of Bosch kitchen appliances for our last house and loved them. So, when we purchased a new home 2 1/2 years ago and did a kitchen remodel we bought another set of Bosch appliances without thinking twice about it. The HMV5053U/01 microwave we installed however, has already failed. When opening or closing the door the circuit breaker is tripped. I replaced the breaker to no avail. Researching the issue, it seems this is a recurring problem with the door interlock switch for this microwave. Reading another review on this thread for the same problem, it was noted the repair cost to fix this $500 unit will be about $300. If the design is faulty, as it appears to be, it makes no sense to throw good money at a problem that looks like it could easily occur again. I really expected more from Bosch and since this appears to be a design issue they should stand behind their product.

Don't buy it

Natalia Ferrer 11/11/2020

This is the second time that I buy a BOSCH over the range nicrowave and the second time that the two plastic pieces that hold the grill from the top break by itself! The grill is a part of the microwave that you don't even touch! so the quality of it must be super cheap. In order to repace these tiny plastic pieces you have to buy the entire grill and it costs about $93. Never again!

Tommy 9/16/2020

How many decades old microwaves have you used in your life? I've used planty that are 10 or 20+ years old. My *Less than 2 year old* Bosch hmv3053u/01 has no power and apparently not covered under warranty. Can't believe I spent over $500 on this garbage and will have to spend hundreds more to repair or replace. Never buying Bosch again...

Over range microwave

Bryan D. 9/11/2020

This microwave is well and built and easy to install. The functions are nice and it seams very well built. The cons are that over the 3 months of use the plastic film that cover the key pad has already started to bubble up. Another problem is that the fan is load but fails to pull back enough steam from the front burners. That is what caused to the film over the keypad to bubble up. The fan sound strong but I have not tested the strength of the air it's pulling. Over all it is a mediocre product. I feel for the money it should be better.

DOA

gregm 8/23/2020

Upon installation the unit wouldn't heat! Appliance store sent out a service tech that declaared the magnetron was dead and indicated it would take 3-4 weeks to get a new part. Being a brand new microwave I called the store informing them that I wanted a new unit not a new part; it took more than a month for the replacement unit to arrive; we'll see how long it lasts. How can a brand new microwave be delivered with a "dead" magnetron (basically the engine of a microwave). Doesn't say much for the QA process. Probably wouldn't be looking at this unit if I just started shopping.

Every 2 years this unit had to be replaced

Cheryl 5/9/2020

I will never purchase a Bosch unit again. Nothing but trouble when it needs to be replaced every 2 years. Only used to reheat food and I expect it to last more than 2 years time. At $500+ cost, it is not worth the money. I would rather buy a tabletop microwave which is cheaper if I have to replace it so often.

Dooblehorn 4/28/2020

This was a bit of a pain to mount to the wall. That process could definitely be improved. I think all microwaves should have a standard mounting bracket across all manufacturer's. Aside from that microwave is great. More powerful than our previous microwave so that takes getting used to. I'd heard Bosch was not reliable but so far so good!

Microwave died at 18 months

Colton 3/1/2020

I paid 500 dollars for this "quality" item. And an additional 150 to replaces the breaker when it broke and started sparking. It was used in our home and was not abused. It was horrible and disappointing. I bought it to match my other appliances and because I thought I could at least 5 years use - my cheaper whirlpool lasted 14 and I only replaced it because I wanted my appliances to match - the last Bosch product I will ever buy.
