    Got a brand new integrated Bosch 4 series that lost power, called Bosch out and this was due to wiring, I found this strange, rewired the flex plate and it worked.

    It's just happened again mid cycle, dead power gone.

    Anyone seen this before?

    Wiring of what? Do you mean the socket or FCU that supplies the appliance?

    Can you plug it into another socket on another circuit as a test.

    Assume it is nor mcb or rcd

    Hi,

    Sorry not the full story being given here!

    I removed the original plug to wire into a flex socket, this is then fused.

    It wouldn't fit in with a plug on.

    It may be that you have a loose connection at the start of the cable that supplies the fused spur & the supply to the spur is breaking down when load is applied to it. You really need to be able to test if you are loosing the live or neutral supply to the spur as the beep noise may not indicate that you have a constant supply. If the Bosch engineer has established that the supply to the appliance is not there then you need an electrician to confirm it & rectify that fault.

    I'm wondering if this is where i've taken the factory plug off and its as you say gradually loosening after a while in the flex plate.

    I might stick a plug back on it.
