Is their not two elements, one at the top too? If it is tripping on the high limit switch it could be the thermostat Try checking the grounding of the unit.

Unit cuts off after 3 mins of heating water


Sounds like the heating element in the unit is shorting out. If you are handy you may be able to replace the part but I would recommend having someone look at it who is familiar with this unit.

High temperature thermal cut-out has tripped


Type, model, brand, age of water heater, and general installation of water heater are unknown.

1) Electric tank-type water heater: replace thermostats and test elements.

2) Gas tank-type: replace gas control valve, clean air intake screen/ location varies by brand:

3) Tankless: call service technician, or replace tankless with tank-type and save money long-term.

4) Add comment and describe water heater using label located on side of unit, and include what you are doing to 'reset' the thermal cut-out.

Bosch AE-9.5 keeps tripping the reset


All resets and breakers trip with high heat.
Do you mean the tankless unit is tripping the 40 amp circuit breaker?
Or the thermal cut-out, located on unit, is tripping?

Is this a new installation?
Or was the tankless working before and stop working?

Copy following link to check wiring.
AE 9.5 requires 40 amp breaker and 6 gauge wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

If the unit is tripping the thermal cut, -out, then product manual says to call Bosch or service technician.
Call Bosch 866-330-2729
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch-Powerstar-AE3.4-7.2-9.5.pdf
Thermal cut-out can trip if water flow is too low.
Try changing power selector screw from Hi to Lo so only 1 element is ON. See diagram page 6 of manual.
Adjust the 'outlet service valve:' The manual recommends that a ball valve be installed between hot outlet and faucet. Adjust the valve so more water flows to faucet.
Remove aerator, clean aerator, don't use low flow restrictions or low flow shower heads, replace leaky faucet cartridge on single-handle faucet.

Light flashing - lockout condition - ECO failure


The ECO is designed to shut off the water heater in case of the water heater overheating. This is to prevent the water heater from exploding. I assume that you have a newer style residental water heater or a commerical boiler. The ECO is a fuseable link that is built into the control and located at the thermostat probe. If the water heater overheats then this link will melt cutting the circuit on the millivolt system(residential) or 24volt system(commercial boiler). If you look under the water heater control(where the temp adjustment is) there are usuall two wires that go from the control to the water heater. These are the ECO wires. Verify the wires have not been cut or damaged. If these wires are cut or damaged then the ECO circuit will be incomplete and you will get the ECO lockout failure. Also make sure that the flame lock-out switch is not tripped. It will be located at the burner compartment cover and have two wires going to it. Most have a little button in the center. These are to sense high heat and one might have tripped closing the circuit. You can push this little button to re-set the switch. If you feel a little "click" then the switch was probably tripped. If it does not have any button then it might be "self resetting". To test that switch use a continuity tester and the circuit should be closed. If these switches are working then the fusable link for the ECO is probably bad from the water heater temp getting too high or was defective and failed. This will require you to remove the water heater control valve and replace the fusable link. If you do not have experience with this I suggest you call a licensed plumber to make the repairs. If this repair is improperly done it could void the warranty on the water heater and/or cause property/personal damage or injury. There is a possiblilty that your water heater thermostat had failed causing the ECO to trip. If that is the case then the ECO safety did it's job.

Shower will not heat up. Creda Aqua 9.5e - was working fine but now no red neon indicator and cold water only. I have checked power going into unit and is ok.


May have a tripped thermal overload or blown fuse. Some overloads reset automatically but some will have a red button to reset it with. Some have to be replaced.

Burner goes out when it was running


Hi,
Here are a few things you need to check.
Make sure that the temperature limiter and the flue gas limits are not tripped.
Make sure that you have at least 30 PSI of water pressure.
Also check to see if you have a plumbing crossover and make sure that it is set correctly.
