Is their not two elements, one at the top too? If it is tripping on the high limit switch it could be the thermostat Try checking the grounding of the unit.

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.

I have a Bosch Powerstar AE125 where the left cut-out trips. This problem began at the end of last winter to the point I was resetting multiple times a week. During the entire summer I might have had to...


I suppose I would ascertain that the supply voltage is the same there as the outer cutout connectors. If equal, the breaker can be faulty. Worse case the heater has an intermittent short causing overload to trip out.

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:

I have an Intermatic WH-40 timer set up on swimming pool pump. I am not using any start/stop mechanical pieces on the dial face. Yet my pump does shut off everyday for short time period. Why is this...


Sounds like pump issue or loose wire and not the timer.
Check wiring at pump. Read pump manual. The pump may have overheat cycle that trips off and then comes back on to protect pump without requiring owner to press reset button each time.

If timer turns OFF, then the manual override lever moves to the off position, and when timer turns ON again, the override lever moves to the on position. If override lever is moving without a tripper, then I would like to know more about that. Add a comment with photo posted on Flickr.

Same with the circuit breaker. The circuit breaker switch does not trip and reset once a day.

A loose wire could cause occasional connect-reconnect.
Check terminals inside timer for signs of high heat and burning. Check that insulated part of wire is not under the screw-down-plate.

Check circuit breaker for signs of burning and smell of electrical burning and sound of shorting on the busbar.
