SOURCE: A2 error on Bosch tankless water heater

  1. Check continuity of the flue gas limiter (see Fig. 63, page 46 of manual). Go to steps two and three to determine air box temperature sensor fault and replace it.
  2. Check for flue gas leakage around the top and bottom seals of heat exchanger as well as the viewing window.
  3. Check that venting is within specifications (see Section 3.3 of manual). Long vent lengths, venting with more than three elbows, blocked vent or combination venting may cause this failure.
  4. Check that flue gas limiter connector and spade connections are secure.
  5. Unplug heater and check the two main plug connections inside the control board.

SOURCE: How to install a new temp sensor Whirlpool electric water heater

The instructions for installing the sensor will probably included with the new part. Also, when you receive the part and actually see it, you will probably know where it will go. Sometimes, things like this happen even with new units. I have had bad thermocouples on brand new units right from the factory. It happens and unfortunately it happens to us sometimes. Good luck and if you get the part and still have trouble, contact them again. If you would have bought a GE (Rheem) unit, they would have sent a tech out to your house at no cost. I'm not a fan of Whirlpool water heaters.

SOURCE: i have a richmond 5v40-36f water heater & when

Do you have a natural gas or propane water heater. You could possibly have a dirty valve which stops the flow of the gas. Has there been a change with the environment of the water heater. Check for the draft and back blow of the available air. If the water heater is over 6 years old maybe it is time to replace the unit. Good Luck

My line water heater turns off after a few minutes


if u are hitting the red button and it is a heat pump hot water system it means that the unit is going out on high pressure ( the red button is a high pressure manual reset button) this could be caused by a few things could be over charged ( but unlikely if no one has touched it recently) a solenoid isnt opening or there is a blockage in one of the TX valves. if the button u are pushing isnt in the pipe work and it is on the compressor it could be an over temp switch on the compressor ( unit could be short of gas) just need a little more info to pin point the problem.

How do I troubleshoot a 6kw 240 volt circulation heater. This heater is on a baptistry; they fill it up before service starts and use it 90 to 120 minutes later and water is still cold.


Hi,
It is very possible that you just are not giving it near enough time...
I have worked on them before and they do not heat the water very fast....
you will need to give it at least 12-24 hours to heat the baptistry properly...
That heater will only heat about 30-35 gal./hour....on a 50F rise in water temp. ....figure how many gallons you have there and then do the math...

AFTER LIGHTING MY RICHMOND 6G40-36F1 WATER HEATER IT LIGHT FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THE FLAME AND THE PILOT LIGHT GOES OUT. WHAT CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN?


There is air in the gas line. The best way to get the air out, is with the gas on, loosen the nut that attaches to the gas valve and make sure you can smell a little gas, then reattach the gas line, making sure everything is tight, and then relight the pilot making sure to hold the pilot light button down for at least 1 minute.
