Question about Bosch 1600H-NG Natural Gas AquaStar AquaStar Natural Gas Tankless Water Heater...

1 Answer

Gas tankless water heater turns off during shower

While taking a shower our tankless water heater sporadically turns off, even the pilot light. It has happened 3 times now over about a 2 week period. Relighting the pilot will get it going again.
It is a Bosch 125B manufactured after Feb 2005..
I think it is the thermocouple since it turns off the pilot as well as the main burner. It could also be the gas valve.
These parts are expensive and non returnable so I would like to get it right the first time.

Take the thermocouple out and match it up at any hard wear store. Maybe $10. Replace it .Make sure the flame is clean and hitting the rod in the center center. Ajust (Bend) accordingly.

Pilot light will not stay on Bosch natural gas tankless water hea


Check to make sure the flame of the pilot is hitting the thermocoupling. If not then you can use compressed air to clean the pilot port and relight and check again. If the flame is hitting the thermocouple, then it may need to be replaced.

Tankless on demand water heater.


Tankless water heaters normally take a little longer than a regular heater to provide hot water because they have to start and get warmed up. I'm guessing the heater uses a pilot light and that the short amount of hot water when you turn on the tap is hot because when the water is sitting still in the heater the heat from the pilot light is enough to get it hot. The tub faucet will get hot a lot faster than the shower because it lets a lot more water through and empties out the pipes faster than the shower. You could probably speed things up by letting the tub faucet run on completely hot for like 10-15 seconds and then turning on the shower.

Paloma Tankless water heater wont kick on


Tankless Water heaters have a automatic pilot and digital water temperature control system; you have to turn on the water in the house to get it to kick on that is unless you have a circulation pump on a timer. If the gas supply doesn't have atleast a 2" rating that with cause the tankless to malfunction because it's not getting enough gas pressure; certified professionals rarely make this mistake. Moreover, if you don't have a water softener you are using with the tankless you voided your warranty; the minirals clog the heat exchanger.
