Bosch lock stuck

Recommended Posts

I have a pretty new Bosch vario perfect, series 6,  machine. Today someone had activated the child lock, which didn’t about. I used the emergency open thingy , near the needle filter.

since this didn’t really solve the problem, I poked in the locking mechanism with a screwdriver, which made the black latch snap down.

the child lock is now disabled, but I can’t shut the door. I can’t find a way to reset the lock and I am afraid to damage it with too much force.

I don’t think the lock is damaged yet, it just needs to snap back.

please help

Hi Johan. The only thing you can try is to push the black latch back. When you close the door, the latch springs down and captures the door latch holding the door securely closed. 

When you open the door, usually by pulling a handle on the door, this action pushes the black latch back out of the way. As you can’t close the door, you would need to look at what happens to the door catch when you pull the handle and try to emulate that action with the screwdriver. 

If you can’t get it out of the way you’d need a new door lock.
