Sounds like the heating element in the unit is shorting out. If you are handy you may be able to replace the part but I would recommend having someone look at it who is familiar with this unit.

SOURCE: water heater not working after turning up heat

Did you turn the breaker completely off, then back on? When a breaker trips it is in a middle position, and nust be turned off to reset it, then it can be turned back on.

SOURCE: The unit is no longer heating the water. The red

This will be a thermostat or element problem. The red light tells us that you have power to the unit. If you are handy you can test the thermostat and the element with a continuity tester. A voltmeter may also be used. This will tell you where the fault lies.

Why is the dometic hot water heater not heating with 110 ac


This is assuming you have a 110vac unit. Could be breaker tripped in house, or high limit thermostat tripped on water heater, but most likely a burnt out element.

Boiler on hot water radiator system wont work


This is both a complex and dangerous system. There are many factors which can cause this. I will need more information. I will ask some basic questions... Was the thermostat changed out with the a/c unit or does it have a separate one? Did the gas valve get shut off? Did the breaker get shut off? Is the water on? They have low water lockouts. 99% of the time, it is where work was done. Did they hook up the stat correctly and establish the proper type of heat on the stat? Is the circulation pump on? Is the flame control board reset tripped? Leave feedback and we can go from there.

High temperature thermal cut-out has tripped


Type, model, brand, age of water heater, and general installation of water heater are unknown.

1) Electric tank-type water heater: replace thermostats and test elements.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

2) Gas tank-type: replace gas control valve, clean air intake screen/ location varies by brand:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

3) Tankless: call service technician, or replace tankless with tank-type and save money long-term.

4) Add comment and describe water heater using label located on side of unit, and include what you are doing to 'reset' the thermal cut-out.

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.

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:

Take off front cover, on the top of the two cylinders in there (the heating system) there will be a small red button. That is the Safety Thermal Cut out, depress that red button. It is similar to a circuit breaker. If the red LED comes on when you turn on hot water at a sink then that was the problem. I have on that trips periodically. Its annoying but not enough to replace the part yet. Good luck.
