This process is best performed at night so you can see the pilot light in action.

Important...*ensure all hot water taps are off*


1) press and hold pilot button (extreme left button)
2) press spark button (extreme right button) while holding in pilot button from step 1
3) with the pilot button still held in, observe the pilot light through the window. if there is no pilot light now, your heater is busted.
4) if you see the pilot light above, very quickly *completely* remove your finger from the pilot button while at the same time pressing in the flame button (second from left - this button will not work until you completely remove your finger form the pilot button so timing is important) - the pilot light should stay lit.
5) if it goes out or your timing is off, repeat these 4 steps until it lights.

This could take a number of tries and can be quite frustrating until you can get the timing of step 4 right. Good Luck!

Sorry to post this as a 'solution', but it follows on from the previous solution. I perform Step 1 and Step 2 but the pilot light will not light. Should I be able to smell or hear gas when the far left button is pushed? (I can't) Is it possible to manually ignite the pilot with a match if it appears the ignition switch is not doing anything (should I be able to see a spark when it is pressed?, I can't)

Wiggle the button while pushing and releasing, maybe it's caught on the casing it's in.

Hi I have a Bosch water wizard 10p & although i have the heat turned up to the highest it is still not hot enough! I was wondering if there was another way of increasing the water temp?


Open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

Typical Bosch 10P manual shows temperature control illustration on Pg4, and includes low water temperatures on troubleshoot on Pg6
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_10P-installation.pdf
Water flow rate too high, low gas pressure, faulty thermostat.

Two other things might be causing problem

I have a Bosch Water Wizard 10P - have no hot water, no water comes out the hot water tap, can't light Pilot Light, not sure where to start would love a step by step diagram how to start pilot light -...


Open following link for Bosch tankless troubleshooting resources, including Bosch contact information, typical manuals, error codes, tech support, parts, fuel-saver calculator, service bulletins, water heater forum, fixya links, disclaimers, and links for finding service technician.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

Before calling service technician, read manual for fault finding and possible solutions.
Read manual cover to cover, make sure tankless receives yearly maintenance as outline in manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_water-wizard.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_13P_16P_In.pdf

Following links talk about keeping pilot lit, and describe location somewhat. Bosch water wizard has standing pilot light.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t6182021-bosch_10p_tankless_hot_water

1) The manual does not show diagrams you asked for.

2) Website that sells Bosch parts does not show parts for water wizard, nor does Bosch site for parts: Instruction manual says: replace pilot injector
http://www.boschhotwater.com/HelpfulResources/PurchaseParts/tabid/837/Default.aspx
http://www.houseneeds.com/shop/heatingproducts/waterheating/parts/bosch2400espartsbuy.asp#

3) Searching "pilot injector for Bosch Water wizard" turns up fixya questions which is generally bad news for do-it-yourselfer because it means information sources are through service technician.

4) As a general rule, tankless are not do-it-yourself repairs or installation because they are affected by so many internal and external factors, including air quality, air flow, venting, other gas appliances, gas pressure, gas supply, water pressure, water flow, plumbing problems, water quality, plus internal parts and including any combination of things listed above..
Replacement parts each come will disclaimer.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.
Send some photos so the internet can see the problem.

Water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out


If the thermocoupler is defective the gas to everything is shut off. The coupler is the bulb that sits ib the pilot flame If it doesn't heat up it will sense no pilot and shut the gas off. They don't cost much and are easy to change. Good Luck, Ned

My bosh water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out.


Very possible the thermocoupler is no good. The thermo coupler is that bulb that is in the pilot flame. It controls the main valve It's not expensive and fairly easy to change out.. Make sure you get no dirt in the cspillary tube hole.brass screw end. The bulb must be just in the flame tip when adjusting. Good Luck, Ned-

Bosch Water Wizard 600 pilot light keeps going out


You need a new thermocouple. Its the little stick like thing that the flame heats up to tell gas valve to open.
