Our technical service is still in use. However, due to COVID-19 there are longer waiting times. In addition, official regulations - which vary from country to country - can mean that our service technicians are no longer allowed to drive on assignments. We therefore ask you to contact our service team - preferably by email - to clarify the current status.

Below we have listed the most frequent possible malfunctions with solutions for self-help. In all other cases please contact our Technical Service: service.international@bora.com or +49 8035 9840-150.

You can order regularly at any time. However, delivery via our logistics service providers is subject to the official regulations of the respective country. Of course we will do our best to send the goods to you as soon as possible.

The BORA system is part of your new kitchen. Therefore we ask you to contact your kitchen studio. They are usually available for you by phone or email. Of course, we will do our best to deliver the BORA System to your kitchen dealer as soon as possible. Due to official restrictions, we currently have only limited or no influence on the delivery. But be assured that we are in exchange with our retail partners.

Help for self-help: Recognizing error codes and correcting faults yourself

Your BORA system with induction cooktop shows "E2"

Your BORA system is equipped with overheating protection. If the cooktop overheats, the power is reduced or the cooktop is switched off completely. The overheating protection can be triggered if:

  • cookware is heated without contents.
  • Oil or grease is heated at a high power level.
  • a hot cooking zone is switched on again after a power failure.

The overheating protection initiates one of the following measures:

  • The activated power level is switched back.
  • The power stage P can no longer be switched on.
  • The set power level is reduced.
  • The hob is switched off completely.

After sufficient cooling time, the hob can be used again to its full extent.
