There are 3 or 4 elements in there. One or more are bad. Just disconnect the wires and check for continuity. Check the thermostats too. The most common problem is sediment build up. If it is really bad you have to take the elements out and flush out the tank. Use Lime Away or similar product. Sometimes there can be so much build up there isn't room for the water and it will burn out the elements. This only has a 5 gallon tank so it doesn't takd much.

Sounds like water leak.
For example, broken pipe... or water running out of TP valve.
That would explain variable hot-and-cold water at tap.
Turn off all taps, and observe if water meter is registering water usage.

Water won't stay hot long


1) Thermostat may be bad, or out of calibration. Set temperature higher, and/or troubleshoot by type of gas control.

I have to turn the hot water tap on full open to get hot water


Type of water heater is unknown
If you have single-handled faucet the faucet cartridge might be bad.
If you have recirculation system, then check valve might be bad.

Sounds like a plumbing problem.

Since no tap gets hot water, chances are good the problem lies in the hot water pipes between the water heater to the first Tee.
Look for sediment lodged in water heater hot water pipe.
Or sediment lodged in elbow or Tee.

Other problems can be in play.
Faulty check valve or mixing valve if these are installed.
Faulty recirculation system if this is installed.
Also crossover at single-handled faucet where the cartridge is bad and lets the cold water flow into hot water pipe whenever another faucet is turned on. If you are getting cold water out the hot tap, and you know the hot water heater has hot water, then crossover is suspect > in addition to sediment blockage at hot water heater.

Wont stay fired up


Bosch tech support will ask you to turn off the valve to the water heater and open a hot water tap. If you have water flowing it is likely from a shower valve. My experience is Price Pfister shower valves are usually the culprit. Let me know how this turns out.
