Water Leak in Bosch Highflow water heater

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!

SOURCE: Slow leak drips from bottom of 4 year old model

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.

SOURCE: Bosch 2400E-NG output temp fluctuates

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.

SOURCE: RHEEM 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402: my rheem 81sv40d water heater quit heating water. ...

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.

Bosch 125fx heater barely heats water


1) Recommend replacing tankless with ordinary tank-type gas water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html
http://hometips.me/Mar/Which-is-best-gas-water-heater.pdf

2) Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in water or unit will fail within 2-5 years. Water softener is required.
http://hometips.me/Tls/Battelle_Water-softening-research.pdf

3) Descaling tankless water heater each year will not restore functionality, or restore efficiency of tankless, nor restore full efficiency to tank-type gas water heater.

4) Bradford White side-by-side testing research comparing their tankless with their tank-type shows that tankless will save $1-8 per month on energy bill vrs ordianry tank-type ....but conclude that tankless 'fall far short of payback' due to maintenance, repair, installation and replacement costs.
Study compared full cost, and not just monthly energy bill, since All costs are energy.

My Boch 24ES Highflow Hotwater is showing Code 14 and only runs for i minute then shuts off


Code 14.
What water heater do you have?
Question posted under tankless Bosch, but these error codes start with a letter.
Rheem/Richmond etc Tankless has error code 14
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paloma-Tankless-Error-Codes.pdf
Call tankless service technician.
Ask technician how much it costs to have recommended yearly service.

Or install whole new tank-type gas water heater yourself for $350 from local box store, and avoid the entire headache, then sell tankless online for parts.

I have a Bosch 10P water heater. Pilot light has blown out and while trying to relight the pilot the stop button has been pushed down and won't pop back out. What am i doing wrong? Cheers


What leads you to suspect that pilot blew out instead of another problem?
Fact that pilot will not relight, indicates other factors at play.

Open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources including manual, and Bosch contact info:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

Best place to start is your manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_10P-installation.pdf

1) Manual recommends 'cleaning by authorized person, never less than once a year.'
Tankless water heaters, and most newer tank-type gas water heaters, are highly technical and finicky devices that require continual maintenance, with tankless requiring 'yearly' maintenance while tank-type require 'periodic' maintenance.
2) Troubleshoot in manual says 'no gas supply' or 'blocked pilot' replace pilot injector

Upvote the help.

Had the unit for seven years, it started to leak water around the water valve. Bosch aqua Star 125x ng


You have to fix this leak around the water valve before
it causes damage to your equipment.
1. Close the water supply valve going to your tankless
water heater.
2. Unplug or close the natural gas valve.
3. Now, you can work fixing the leak.
4. Once completed, you can proceed to open the
natural gas valve as well as the water supply valve.
5. Then, have it tested to get it done.
