The thermal breaker keeps blowing


Replace the limit, by tripping often they become even more likely to nuisance trip.

Titan Troubleshooting


Check for small fuse on circuit board:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Water heater circuit boards are NOT protected from surge. And reset button does not protect from surge. Nearby lightning can put out any household appliance, especially since more of these things are electronic instead of mechanical.
Install single-use whole house surge protector and replace it after each surge event instead of replacing appliances.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Whole-house-surge-protector.html
The quickest solution for tankless is to replace whole thing with more reliable tank-type electric heater for $275 from local box store.

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.

Thermostat sticking titan n180


The thermostat is there to protect the water heater. I don't think it can overheat and make the breaker trip. If you tried to reset the unit and it's still not working, you should send your Titan N180 back to the manufacturer to be repaired. The 10 year warranty if against leaks. You have 1 warranty in your Titan components.

I don't have specific suggestion for tankless tripping breaker or if that is a circuit breaker problem or a tankless problem.

1) Move wires to another same-size breaker and see if problem persists.

2) Compare amp draw on tankless label with wire size and breaker size amp rating.
For example 30 amp breaker using 10ga wire is rated for 80% of listed amps or 24 amps.

3) If you are drawing full 30 amps, then 30 amp breaker is getting hot. Breaker trips with heat. Older breakers can trip more easily.

4) Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting steps.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

5) Be sure to read manual for yearly maintenance requirements.

6) Add a tempering tank for incoming cold water problem.

7) All gas tankless brands can be repaired by homeowner for $330.

After installing my titan N100 the breaker keeps tripping went from 50 amp breaker to 60 and still keeps tripping how do Isolve this problem?


You had an instant heater there before? Or a different type? Your breaker numbers don't mean anything to me, I need amps and volts, what is the amp? 30? and the volt is 220? Or are you in Europe?. And you had the four wires in there before? And you have all 4 wires on the heater line? And the heater is grounded? It should work. Unless it is not getting enough juice, but you already upped the amp. Let me know what you got.

Titan Tankless stopped working this morning.


I have the Titan SCR2 N-120. You may have a different model. On mine if you are looking at it just a inch below & 1 inch to the left of dead center will be a round black sticker(it has some white lines at&t's logo). there's a pin hole in the middle of the sticker that you can poke to reset. Or turn the breaker off then take the 2 screws out of the top of the unit. It's just a thin metal cover that you can pull back & look inside. You'll see a red circular button thats the reset button. It's right behind where the hole I was talking about & what gets pushed in. you'll also be able to see if anything burned out & can get replacement parts at titanheater.com . One of my heater elements had burn/ melted & I've ordered a replacement. It was $17 + $11 s&h but still cheaper than $200 new unit from e b a y. Best of Luck
