Question about Heating & Cooling

Bosch h16 hydropower

On a guess basis, is it the turbine that is likely to be faulty (works more often than not but when it doesn't I end up playing with the wires and eventually it fires up)? If so do you have any idea what the part cost would be please?

I'm just trying to make a judgement call on whether this 5 year old unit is best forgotten about and a new one purchases (but not the hydropower model).

Cost for both parts and labor vary for one end of the country to the other so I would have no idea what the cost would be in your area.

Need help with Bosch hydropower 13h tankless hot water system


when you turn on the hot water tap there is a pressure switch in the line that sends a signal to a gas solenoid to pass the gas and at the same time to the pizo to start the flame
I would have that pressure switched checked as it may be sticking ( internal contamination) or have dirty corroded points
as gas is involved I would suggest a gas technician do the jib
when you turn off the tap, that pressure switch is shut off so the gas is turned off at the solenoid and the pizo is stopped.

Power indicator just keeps blinking


H16 on this model means that either the power supply transformer has failed, The outdoor PCB has failed or the machine is low on gas.

This info is from the Panasonic service guide. The outdoor unit LED 1 is on, LED 2 is on, LED 3 is off, LED 4 is off.

sounds like the generator has packed up. check water flow and clean any filters on the water line. you will need a service agent to check milli volts on generator and power pack

I'm curious about Bosch Hydro Generated Ignition used in tankless hotwater heaters. I believe a spark is generated by a small turbine driven by water demand... how reliable is this system? Can it be...


Experienced this a lot in Australia. After lots of hassle I went back to the battery operated model. The turbine can get stuck if you have debris in the water and I found it just something else to go wrong. Sounds like a good idea in theory, guess I am just an old school guy; keep it simple!!!

I have a 2nd hand Bosch HydroPower LPG hot water system and am trying to find a manual. do you have one or is it pretty straighforwward in terms of installation? Mike


I have just dug my manual out (16H) because mine is faulty. email me and I will photocopy it at work this week and email it back to you.

Installation should be pretty straightforward and the manual's not that in depth. There are however some sections on adjusting the gas and the like that you might want to read over.

Bosch Hydropower 16H instantaneous gas hot water unit not firing??


we had this problem and no plumbers were able to fix it. Finally we got someone from Bosch around and they found part of the ignitor had been installed upside down, since then no problems at all.
