Bosch has a one-year warranty on refrigerators, helping out with costs for replacements and repairs. You can also purchase its Appliance Service Plan after the warranty has ended. Keep in mind that there are some limitations and exclusions — read on for the details so you can make the most of your warranty.


Key insights

  • Bosch offers a one-year warranty on the entire appliance.
  • The Appliance Service Plan can add extra coverage and extend the warranty.
  • The warranty does have varying limitations and exclusions.

Bosch refrigerator warranty coverage and plans

Your Bosch refrigerator is backed by a 12-month warranty for both parts and labor. Beyond that first year, you still get coverage for up to five years on specific components, including non-electrical parts. Bosch also provides a lifetime warranty on rust-through for stainless steel parts. Beyond the first 12 months, though, the warranty doesn’t cover any labor costs.

Bosch also offers an extended warranty, known as the Appliance Service Plan, which you can buy either before or after your initial warranty expires. With flexible term options, you can select an extended warranty for one, two or four years.

Limits and exclusions

Bosch does have several limitations on its refrigerator warranties. For example, it doesn’t cover non-motor components such as handles, baskets, shelves and drawers. The warranty also excludes the following:

  • Repairs for residents 100 miles or more from an authorized service provider
  • Breakdowns due to rust or corrosion
  • Breakdowns from accidents and misuse
  • Repair is done by anyone other than a Bosch service technician

How to register a Bosch refrigerator

To register your Bosch refrigerator, you must create a MyBosch account. Navigate to the registration page and select the "Log In or Register" button. After logging in, click on "Register Here" and complete the form. You’ll need your model number (E-Nr), FD number and delivery date.

Bosch refrigerator warranty cost

With a Bosch fridge, the initial warranty cost is incorporated into the refrigerator's purchase price. While the cost may vary, Bosch offers a flexible payment plan, which means you can pay for the extended warranty gradually.

Something to note: There may be an additional deductible for each claim you file.

How to file a claim for your Bosch refrigerator

To file a claim on your Bosch refrigerator or schedule a repair, you can reach Bosch customer service at 800-944-2904. You can also text “SUPPORT” to 21432.

Bosch refrigerator warranty vs. home warranty alternatives

A home warranty is a lot like an extended warranty. Both Bosch's extended warranty and home warranty coverage start once your manufacturer's warranty expires and start 30 days after the plan purchase.

The major difference is the broader coverage of a home warranty. It covers not only your refrigerator but also other appliances, such as dishwashers, stoves, HVAC systems, washers and dryers. In most cases, a home warranty tends to come with a higher price tag because it provides coverage for a broader range of items in your home.
