Question about Bosch Water Heaters
I'm in Whangarei, NZ, and have an old model YS2431R Highflow gas water heater - approx 12 years old. Water inflow has sprung leak (can see water dripping from the inflow pipe & bottow of unit).The water is shorting electrics, tripping saftey switch on the power board. No hot water as a result. Bosch NZ extremely unhelpful - automated phone system doesn't transfer to a service agent, but to some poor woman in another part of the country who's phone number has been wrongly included on the automated list. When I finally got hold of a live person at Bosch (after 4 attempts), I was told it wasn't their problem to fix!

You can probably repair this by removing the fittings and replacing any plastic compression rings with new ones. Everything else can be cleaned with grade "0000" steel wool. This will get rid of any deposits without damaging the surfaces. ! or @ careful wraps of Teflon Tape to the MALE threads will help get a good seal.

Tankless heaters do not like back pressure from anti scalding devices in shower controls. Every time they compensate and shove more coldwater to the hot side so you don't get burned when someon is using the cold water elsewhere in the home, it can reduce the heater below it's minimum flow rate and shut it down. Nothing wrong with the heater. Ask kohler if there is a wy to disable the device without buying a new unit entirely.

I have the same problem about every 3-4 months. Mine is also about 10 or 11. It is usually the sediment at the bottom that causes this. Once the plumber flushes it, it works again. My problem is that I dont know how he did it and the vavle is at the floor level. I am never home when it is repaired. Regular maintenance (flushing) is how you avoid this from reoccurring. That is, if that is the cause of your issue.
