I have a Bosch 16B hot water service that won't light. I have replaced the batteries and checked there is gas working in the rest of the house. Is there any thing else I can do to make this work

You may have a dirty pilot orifice. Try this. Turn off the pilot by turning the control knob to off. Remove the front panel to get access to the pilot orifice. Use a can of compressed air with attached straw (the same stuff you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the pilot orifice, which is inside the pilot assembly where the pilot flame burns. Blow it out from the top and from the sides through the air holes. Then relight the pilot and see if that improves the flame size and color (blue) to heat the thermocouple.
Here is a link to the manual and instructions.

Yes you do have a problem with the button, the heater is broken.
Turn the gas off to the unit and call to get it fixed as soon as you can.

I turned on hot water to take a bath, and it was hot. by the time the tub had filled the water was freezing. now we cant seem to get hot water out of anywhere. the pilot light is on. the knob is set to on,...

if I was a betting may I would say that this is a small water heater, what is the temperature set on, as the pilot light will be lit once the temperature is reached, but until then the burners will be lit. I would move the temperature knob and listen to see if I hear the burners kick on. Hope this helps Tim

Pilot light seems to have gone out. Central heating was on then went off itself. No heating or hot water . Help!

It sounds like you have no gas to the house. You need to call the gas company just in case your service was not shut off. It can be a bad meter or a broken line.

Worcester bosch highflow 400 - the green demand light never works when i select it, there's no hot water or heating. The green demand light does not comes on but there is noise from the boiler . .

Sounds like a control panel.Detatch the block connector that serves the gas valve,see if you have power on the bare pins.both left and right pins should measure mains voltage.If you have no power at the pins its the pcb control board.Replace the board.

Bosch hot water issue does not heat the water

I had the 250 eq ( N.G.) for 3 years and have been dealing with bosch advanced tech service for the same amount of time. they sent me a new 2400 es( same thing, new model # ) last week and still having same problems. So i called them back. I'm on a well and come to find out after 3 years of dealing with them and after them sending me a new one, that they do not work well, on well systems,do to the varying water pressure. (no kidding!!!) After dumping tones of cash in to the darn thing they just sent me a mixing tank and mixing valve free of charge! I don't know if it will work do to the fact I have to install it yet. The best I can say is to call the tech dept at the 800 # on the back of your owners manaul and good luck seeing that no one knows how to service them!!!!!! PS You will need a manometer to measure the gas pressure at the valve.

Hi, I have a Bosch WR250 tankless gas instant water heater. My problem is i am not getting a spark at the pilot when the hot water is turned on,the red light flashes after 10sec. I can here the...

Flashing red light indicates not enough pressure on the input cold water. I had this problem when the small filter was gummed up with ****. Remove the water input nut and inside is a small removable mesh filter. Also the hydro power unit that you hear whirring has a even finer mesh filter. It can also be cleaned out.
