How many wires does it take to wire a bosch ae125 tankless water heater

You need three #8 wires for AE125. Two #8 wires for AE115.

1) Copy following link for wiring information:

2) The AE125 has 3 elements, and requires 3 wires.Each wire is sized #8 copper, and is connected to 40 amp breaker, up to 100 feet. Over 100 feet, use 50 amp breaker and #6 wire. Oversizing breaker and wire is smarted and more efficient than undersizing.

3) Often a separate subpanel is installed to provide 3 extra spaces.

4) Makes sure main breaker panel can accept additional 120 amps of draw without overampping panel ... and starving other appliances of full power.... that will damage appliances, overheat motors, and damage main panel and overheat main breaker. You want to oversize, not undersize electric service when installing tankless electric, which is why I do not recommend tankless electric installation, including issues of costing more to operate, and expensive repairs, and general money risk-nuisance of owning tankless vrs tank-type heater.

My water heater is leaking a lot. water comes from the down bellow. It started like three months ago but it is getting worst Do I need to replace it? how much it will cost a similar one?

It sounds like you need to replace it, Actual cost can very widrly depending on your location but I would say $350-400 is probably close. Plus installation unless you can do it yourself. Hope this helps. Thanks

Intermatic WH40 Timer switch doesn't work even with manual 'on'. It has worked fine for years and now no power comes out of the timer. Power is ok going in. We have another WH40 purchased at the same time...

Typically, there are no lubricants applied to contacts - as they attract dust & dirt. Dust and dirt are poor conductors and can prevent good electrical contact from being made. Some lubes that you may see (typically in automotive lamp applications) is to help seal out water and prevent corrosion. Most switch contacts don't merely touch when they close, but rather perform a "wiping" motion. The two surfaces "scrape" across each other to help remove any foreign debris or oxidation that may be on the surface of the contacts. Additionally, quality contacts have a thin coating of silver, so they are not to be dressed with a file or other abrasive , etc.

The possible sources for the problem that I can see would be - in order of likelihood: (1) trippers, (2) loose field connections, (3) loose factory connections (4) failed timer switches.

Remedies: Make sure the trippers are not bent or damaged. Straighten or better yet - replace as needed. Make sure they are seated firmly against the outer edge of the dial and the thumb screws are made up tight. Check the connections at the terminal screws. Conductors should wrap 3/4 of the way around the threads of the terminal screws - and the screws should be tight. Check for loose factory connections - tighten any loose connections found. If these conditions are OK, the only thing left would be to replace the timer. Purchase a replacement and disconnect the field connections and remove the timer from the enclosure. Install the new timer into the old enclosure and make up the field connections at the terminals. Return the old timer in the new enclosure to the store or manufacturer for credit - or discard if out of warranty.

Don't even open the timer unless the power is off - unless you need to measure voltages, etc.

I hope this helps. Please rate this reply - thanks!

Hi, our plumber has hooked up a new infinity xr-26 but the existing remotes don't work. He says it's a simple 2 wire connection but ther's no cirrcuit

Check with Rinnai to see if the old remotes are compatible with the new heater. Might mean upgrading the remotes too but the wires should be OK. Double check that he has actually connected the wires to the heater. Rinnai in Australia recentyl changed the connection point for the wiring. I can help further with this if this is the issue (not sure where you are!)

Water heater ground

You have clearly lost your ground due to PVC. One solution would be to run copper ground wire from the hot water tank to the metal splice on each end of the PVC. It is not necessary to go all the way back to the breaker box.
