The thermal cutout, on the left side, pops up when water stops flowing through the unit. The modules are Polymer. I can press the button, have tons of hot water as long as the water is flowing through...


The left canister probably has a grounded element in it, which will keep power going after the water is off. Either that or you have a bad triac on your control unit

Question posted under Bosch tankless.
Question says 'tank'
Brand, model, and type heater unknown.
Elements mean electric.
'Thermal cutout pops when taking shower produces cold water' indicates tankless, since tank-type would maintain some hot water.
No error code might indicate tank-type.
Add a comment with type, brand and model number of heater for possible assistance.

You've done the required first-step troubleshooting and maintenance.
If thermal cutout keeps tripping, and unit is actually reaching 185, then something is wrong with wiring, temperature sensor, gas valve, or PC board. Or combination of factors.
Call service technician, and open following link for some Bosch tankless resources including Bosch contact information:

Pilot wont light


If the pilot went out it could be hard to see the pilot. If you have a model that has a sight glass the pilot will be up and to the left. Knowing where to look may allow you to see the pilot easier.
Some models may have a white thermal reset switch which is located to the right opposite of the sight glass. If your model has this you will see it after removing the outer door. The thermal switch has two wires connected to it and in the middle has a small reset to push. After pushing the thermal switch you may relight the water heater.
If this does not work the manufacturer can offer technical support. Their number is 1-877-817-6750.

If this is not a sealed combustion unit, service the water valve OR rebuild the water valve if it is over 5 years old.

I had the same problem with the Stiebel Eltron Tempura 24. Right side unit worked (with blinking LED), but the display and left side (including LED) did not work.

This is CRITICAL. Do not take the cover off unless you have turned off circuit breakers at the circuit breaker panel AND tested that there is no power. There is a lot of voltage/ampreage here and it could be life threatening if you get shocked. Call an electrician (or a plumber) if you don't know what you are doing.

My problem was solved by resetting the safety thermal cutout switch on top of the non working unit (red single press thermistor). See this manual http://www.stiebel-eltron-usa.com/pdf/install_tempra.pdf page 8.
