Serious Bosch Issue - Design problem?

chicgail | Dec 23, 2014 07:33 PM

I have a Bosch HGS7282UC gas stove that came with my new condo. It's about 6 years old.

I used the oven for the first time this week (baking at 350-degrees) and both corners of the stove and the edges of the oven door were so hot I burned myself when I got close enough for my stomach to graze it.

It can't be designed that way, can it?

Maybe it's defective, but I'm concerned about it being a fire hazard and a real danger for children and pets in the house. On another thread, Bosch is highly recommended, but based on that experience, I am highly reluctant to consider Bosch and was surprised to see it recommended.

I am looking for recommendations for a new gas stove to buy. Five high-BTU burners desired. Induction is not an option I would consider. Duel fuel would be good, but it's an expensive option. Convection would be nice.

Ok, my CH advisors, what say you?
