Bosch Confort S 13 BP tankless water heater won't ignite, It clicks but no gas going thru valve


The S 13 BP is a simple unit that does not have a pilot light. It uses electronic ignition on demand, which is what you hear clicking. If there is no gas going through and you've verified there is gas to the inlet, then it has to be the gas control valve.

Gas Hot Water Tank Not Producing Hot Water

Pilot will not stay lit



Trying to light your pilot light and it keeps going out when you turn on you gas valve. This is a common problem when your thermo-couple goes out. The thermo-couple sends a small electrical charge to the gas valve to keep its self lit. When the unit calls for heat the pilot flame gets bigger producing more electric and tells the gas valve to open the main gas valve to the burner tubes. The thermo-couple is an easy item to change most of the time. You will need to follow these steps to change out your thermo-couple:

1. Turn off the gas (there is an inline shut off on the supply line before it reaches the gas valve, you need to turn this crossways to the pipe)

2. Locate the thermo-couple it will look like this and be attached to the gas valve

3. Unscrew the thermo-couple from the gas valve

4. Remove the other end of the thermo-couple from the pilot holder

5. Measure or take the old thermo-couple to the hardware or appliance store with you to get the proper length (there are many different lengths of thermo-couples)

6. Reinstall the bulb end at the pilot

7. Reinstall the threaded end on the Gas Valve (make sure not to cross thread the thermo-couple it should start by hand)

8. Turn the gas valve to the pilot position and hold down the red button wait a few seconds then turn off and do again (you will need to do this around 5 times in order to get the gas back up to the pilot light then try and light the pilot)

9. Try to ignite the pilot light.

10. Once you get the pilot light lit you will want to hold down the button for 60 seconds then turn the gas valve to the on position.

Here is an image of a thermo-couple (they will all look similar to this):

If you are lighting the pilot corectly and waiting for the thermo couple to warm up and then setting it to on, then the thermo couple is probably bad. Good luck!

Wont stay burning if you let off ignition button


this could be a bad thermo coupling -- try and hold down the gas button for about 15 to 20 seconds while it is running and then let go and see if it stays running ( the thermo coupling needs to reach the proper temp ) -- if it shuts down after that then replace the coupling and all should be good.

depending on what you mean by " a very long time " -- holding down the gas valve button while the thermo-coupling gets up to the proper temperature is normal. ( normal hold and wait time should be between 10 to 25 seconds, anything longer than that is a sign that the thermo-coupling is bad ).

I have a rheem fury 50gal gas water heater that will not stay on. I have replaced the thermo couple, it did lite but then went out.


I would like to know how old this heater is. This information can be found on either model or serial numbers.It won't appear obvious but last six numbers will tell you. You have already changed thermo-couple so I would check to see that it's properly centered in pilot flame.When you light it hold pilot button down for two-three mins.while watching thermo-couple.It should be a nice cherry red. If it is and pilot goes out after you release button then you either have another bad thermo-couple or gas valve is bad.If it does not get cherry red at least on tip then you need to reposition thermo-couple and try again. If gas valve is bad and heater is less then six years old valve will be covered under warrenty,however labor won't typically be covered unless you have extened service contract.Hope this helps.Thanks.

Goodman gmp125-5 burners ignite, then shut off after about 5 sec


One of two problems are happening here, your flame sensor is bad, your thermo pile or thermo couple is bad, or last is that the cap on the flue is blocking the exhaust from escaping

Pilot light is out of our coleman 7900 mobile home furnace and we can't get it re-ignited


The thermo couple or the gas valve itself is most likely bad. Cheap enough to start with the thermo couple.

Yes the problem has been solved by cleaning jet and repositioning thermo-couple so that it is well into the flame.It would therefore appear that the combination of a partially blocked gas jet and a badly aligned thermo-couple triggered the auto-igniter .
Thanks for your interest,.......I am afraid that at my age now help has to come free of charge.A new auto-igniter would have been £69 and a thermo-couple £35.A new jet was a reasonable £6...........
