Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Bosch 2400E tankless water heater will ignite but immediately go back off. At first it worked but then built up condensate in the chamber. After drying it out and putting it back together it hasn't worked for a week. At first I failed to install the drain hose on the outlet side which probably caused the condensate problem. That has been remidied. The reason for not hooking up the drain on the main exhaust was because I used a vertical vent kit which has a drain on it. HELP Me Please.

    My Bosch 2400E is natural gas. Everything at this point is by Bosch's installation instructions.

    you mentioned that you did everything according to the instructions, which tells me that you have the oringinal manual for the heater. to me it sounds like you have what they call "no flame ionization". and that you can read on how to remedy from looking on page 39 top of the page.

I have a Bosch GWH 425 HNO propane Tankless Water Heater which began intermittently exploding when demand for hot water occurs.


Call a qualified service tech immediately.
Gas explosion indicates dirty combustion parts, and gas is not fully igniting when tankless turns on the gas. So gas builds up and then explodes causing serious damage to tankless, and serious risk to homeowner.

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.

Our tankless water heat will not heat the water-it won't ignite


Question posted under Boasch tankless. Model number not known.
Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources, including phone and contact for Bosch, error codes, and possible manual, plus hours of reading and research:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

As you know from reading manual, tankless water heaters require yearly maintenance by trained service technician, or by homeowner. This action would check gas and pressure, venting draft, condensation drain, burner and combustion parts, igniter and-or pilot light, electrical connections, air intake and general condition of plumbing.
Problem you describe does not include error code.
Open following link for possible help with general plumbing problem:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/No-Error-Code.pdf

Add a comment with model number that appears on side of unit, and I can directly locate possible service bulletins and further troubleshoot resources available at Bosch for possible do-it-yourself diagnosis and repair.

We installed a Bosch 1600h ng tankless and it will occasionally ignite but not regularly??


Before calling service technician, open following links for Bosch troubleshoot resources:
1) General resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

2) Sales page: Notice the paradoxical promotion of unlimited hot water that saves 50% off utility bill.
http://www.boschhotwater.com/BoschHotWatercomHome/GasProducts/BoschModel1600H/FeaturesandSpecs/tabid/1024/Default.aspx

3) 1600H troubleshooting. Click each item and it opens drop down menu that also has links to service bulletins. Lots of reading, but a great way to get familiar with your product.
http://www.boschhotwater.com/HelpfulResources/TechnicalSupport/BoschAquaStarModels/1600HTechSupport/Troubleshoot/tabid/1094/Default.aspx

I do not recommend tankless for the number of difficult and expensive problems, the required yearly maintenance, plus the specific need for incoming air quality, sufficient quantity of gas, water quality, water pressure, water volume, and correct venting and drainage of vent condensation. And never recommend self-installation since most tankless manufacturers refer immediate problems back to the installer.

Assuming the tankless was installed correctly and not defective:
Other problems can be caused by household conditions.
For example crossover:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html
Tight house: tankless require more incoming air than tank-type because they burn so much more fuel per minute of operation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Ventilating_tight_houses.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Overcoming_fluctuating_temps.pdf
Low water pressure:

Igniter can be ordered, but that may or may not be the issue.
Your tankless unit -and- plumbing system need total check-up by trained service technician.
Open following links for Bosch troubleshooting resources including contact Bosch, manuals, error codes, water flow etc.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/No-Error-Code.pdf
Check electrical outlet with circuit analyzer to make sure polarity is correct.
Typically, gas water heaters, and especially tankless water heaters require yearly maintenance by service technician who can check the gas pressure and supply, venting, electrical connections, PC board, sensors, burner orifices and igniter parts are clean and positioned correctly, vent is draining correctly and not dripping back into combustion chamber, correct temperature is achievable, incoming water temperature is not too cold for temp setting, proper incoming air supply, adequate air supply, no chemicals stored in air supply pathway, filters are clean, plumbing check valves, mixing valves, pressure valves etc are permitting one-way flow of hot water, water is softened to less than 11 grains hardness, water is filtered and not dirty, aerators and other faucet parts are clean and support water flow necessary to activate burner.

See the distributor ,they should be able to supply the required regulator.
