I read on the internet about checking the electrical patrs of pump first so took top off the pressure switcht to find the switch closed. Managed t open the contact point and held the switch open while another reset the circuitbreaker. All was well so far then removed the piece of wood I had wedged in between the contact points to keep them open. The pump came on as usual and has been working fine since.
Don't really know why the circuit blew at the time when the pump was supose to come on the pressure switch points aren't burned so no clue why it did what it did. I bought a new pressure switch so if this happens again the old switch will go.

Why has my dishwasher stopped working completely?,


Sounds like it isn't getting power. Check the circuit breaker that controls the circuit the dishwasher is wired into.

No water comes out of hot water faucet


Most likely water heater.

If it's electric heater, check circuit breaker in breaker box.

If it's gas, check if pilot light is lit.
If it's a gas, pilotless heater (quartz igniter), check that the igniter works.

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.

sounds like you have a power problem. or worst than that a leak . So lets look at the leak first. Turn off the water supply at the water heater on top. This valve should be on the cold side of the heater on top.

Turn it off, check and see if you have pressure in the house by turning on a faucet. It should run for a second then stop. That is good if it does. Leave the valve off on the heater and check that your breaker is on. Reset the breaker by turning it on and off.

Wait about 2 hours turn the heater back on and check to see how hot the water is hot then you might have a leak in the building. If there is not or little hot water. Check the wires where it connects to the water heater. You might only have one wire that is connected right.

The best thing to do is to get a amo meter and check to see if you have 220 if you dont have 220 you will not warm up the water the way it should.

Thanks Richard

Woke up this morning and the fridge was not working, It is like there is no power on to it. I checked the breaker and it was not tripped I did reset it to check but still nothing.


If there is not lights or anything in the refrigerator, then you aren't getting power. Start out checking the outlet - if you don't have a multimeter to check it, use a hair dryer plugged in to that outlet to see if it will work. If it doesn't then it is between that outlet and the main circuit breaker box or even a bad circuit breaker.

If it does work or you have lights in your refrigerator it is probably either the starting capacitor, start relay or compressor.

LG refrigerators are more sensitive to power fluctuations than other models and we have had to replace a lot of starting caps and relays - but sometimes it is the compressor.

Hope this helps!

Try reseting it by unplugging it. Also is there any display lights on (troubles). If that dont work it might have fried the circuit board in the black out.

If the circuit breaker will not reset it could be a few different things. First, circuit breakers do wear out. The bi-metal strip that makes the breaker function does break down metallurgy wise. A new one would have to be installed to fix this problem. The other possibility would be that a wire inside the water heater has grounded out thus not allowing the breaker to reset. A wire might have gotten to hot and the insulation around it might have melted or became brittle and fell off allowing the wire to touch bare metal inside the water heater.

It could be either or at this point. First thing to do, is unplug all electric devices from the plugs on that circuit, and then attempt to reset the breaker. If it does not trip, one of the devices plugged into a receptacle on that circuit could have a short. If it doesn't trip, plug each device in one at a time to see it it trips the breaker to pin point what is causing the short. If the above has no effect, I recommend replacing the breaker. It is easy and inexpensive to do. Just make sure you main is shut off before doing any work on the panel. I hope this helps and good luck!
