I have a bosch 16h hydropower gas water system that seems tempermental in that sometimes it decides to create a spark to light the gas and at other times no spark with resultant cold water being drawn. What could be the problem as the system is only 4 years old

    Volts were 1.1 instead of 1.8. Gave it a tap and went up to 1.3 and started to ignite.

    Service cost are Dependant on the service companies need or greed. Repairing the problem would be more economical than a replacement. Shop around and ask for prices for the repair and then choose.

I have a rudd hot air gas furnace,ignitor sparks


to carmelmontgo; do you have a smart gas valve sometimes the wire connections get loose. remove wire connector then reinstall. also cleaning a flame sensor will work if the flame sensor is good. I would check the ground connection sometimes contaminated with rust. also I would check the gas pressure with a gas manometer...my email is alpharomeo@windstream.net

Pilotlight on gas water heater went out. cant get cover off to light pilot light. Heater is three years old.


Some of the modern heaters have covers that are not removed to light the pilot. Look for an external "clicker" type spark ignitor.

Usiually a red button. Sometimes integrated into the gas valves on/off switch.

moisture is getting into circuit board, usaully this sealed in a jell which keeps the board protected from any kind off dust,moisture etc which would comprimise the thinking side off the unit. a bosch engineer should be able to do a diagnostics on site.

Flashing red light indicates not enough pressure on the input cold water. I had this problem when the small filter was gummed up with ****. Remove the water input nut and inside is a small removable mesh filter. Also the hydro power unit that you hear whirring has a even finer mesh filter. It can also be cleaned out.

Hi John

The manual is very limited in information it said to check there is
  • high water flow going through your system
  • and check your gas settings is correct!
  • The slide adjustment is your gas flow, which regulates your temperature
  • I have also increase the the gas regulator, which increases the gas flow
I have also been told its not a good idea to have a water saving head on your shower as this restrict the water out put.
