Question about Bosch 1600H-LP Liquid Propane AquaStar AquaStar Liquid Propane Tankless Water Heater

1 Answer

Bosch tankless hot water heater 1600H

My water heater is only a year and a half old and I've had the pilot light attempt to light the burners but it wouldn't, so I cleaned the sensor with a pencil eraser. That worked for a couple days and now the pilot light won't even come on. I turned the switch off and back on and nothing happens. good for a few months or less. Now the burner won't light and the pilot won't either. It has an electric pilot start and I don't hear it click even showing it's trying to start. I reset the thermostat and unplugged the whole thing and nothing seems to get it to work. Is it the starter messing everything up?

Cannot find pilot light on my bosch GWH635ESL, help!


Call Bosch
Gas Products Technical Support: 800-642-3111

That model number is only shown at one website, and that model number is not shown at Bosch.
Open following link for Bosch:
http://www.boschwaterheater.com/BoschHotWatercomHome/GasProducts/tabid/331/Default.aspx
Search of Bosch for that model number shows no result.

Some water heaters do not have a pilot light. Instead they use hot surface igniter rod that glows red hot
The igniter rod ignites the gas after solenoid valve opens and gas flows to combustion chamber.
The igniter rod and heat sensor have to be operational, and have to be positioned correctly for ignition to take place.
If igniter rod is not working, or if heat sensor does not detect flame, then gas solenoid valve shuts down and water heater does not heat water.

No hot water, pilot light lights but no burner ignition


Thermo coupler may be defective. it controls the main gas valve by closing main if pilot is out. make sure thermo coupler bulb is positioned over and near tip of pilot flame, but not in the flame. Thermo couplers are inexpensive and easy to change out.

The manual says to hold a match near the pilot while the ignitor is trying. It says that if the unit lights the pilot orifice may be dirty or clogged. Then the manual says to check the voltage on the igniter. It should be 1.3 volts DC minimum if it is not means the electronic control box is defective.
