SOURCE: A2 error on Bosch tankless water heater

  1. Check continuity of the flue gas limiter (see Fig. 63, page 46 of manual). Go to steps two and three to determine air box temperature sensor fault and replace it.
  2. Check for flue gas leakage around the top and bottom seals of heat exchanger as well as the viewing window.
  3. Check that venting is within specifications (see Section 3.3 of manual). Long vent lengths, venting with more than three elbows, blocked vent or combination venting may cause this failure.
  4. Check that flue gas limiter connector and spade connections are secure.
  5. Unplug heater and check the two main plug connections inside the control board.

SOURCE: Bosch SX 250 tankless water heater will attempt to

This is also known as a flame rectification sensor. It basically is what the computer board uses to detect if the pilot flame is lit. When it makes an attempt to fire is there any evidence of flame ignition? This error does not mean that the sensor is bad for sure. The error could be caused because the water heater is only making three attempts to fire and then shutting down. These water heaters are very complex and have many sensors,valves, ect that are all controlled by a computer board. Some of the basic things to check for are... Make sure that you have plenty of gas pressure. These units have a built-in pressure switch and will have issues if they are starved of gas. Most of these tankless water heaters are up to 400,000 btus and a half inch gas line or undersized connector won't work well. You can also check and make sure there is no pipe dope are debris stuck in the screen inside the gas line where it enters unit. Inspect the pilot assembly for debris or obstructions and try to blow out with compressed air. Also look for any loose electrical connectors on the board or to the sensors...one may have come loose.

Q. FA - Gas leakage error, gas valve circuit not closing properly
A.

  1. Disconnect power supply cord and check wire connections on gas valve and the two connectors on the control board.
  2. Flow water out of a hot water tap above the minimum activation point of .8GPM. Measure voltage at the gas valve wire connector. The connector should measure 24VDC between the left pair of wires and 24VDC between the right pair of wires when the unit is operating. If voltage is not correct, contact Bosch Water Heating for further instruction.
  3. Gas valve may be defective, contact Bosch Water Heating for further instruction.
Q. EA - No flame ionization detected with water flow
A.
  1. Verify that all manual gas shut off valves are open.
  2. Verify gas type (See Fig. 2 in installation manual) corresponds with the type of gas supplied to the heater.
  3. Reset error code and open a water tap to cycle the heater in an effort to purge air from gas line (especially on new installations). Cycling hot water tap on and off multiple times may be necessary. If heater still faults with EA error code, have a licensed gas technician properly purge air out of the gas line leading to the water heater.
  4. Verify the three yellow wire connections to the set of electrodes (underside of the burner assembly) are secure.
  5. Verify gas pressure meets specifications outlined in chapter 3.8. See Bulletin TWH-G2-03.
  6. Verify venting meets specifications outlined in chapter 3.6 of the installation manual. Improper venting may cause premature failure of the flame sensor rod.
  7. Observe inside the viewing window of the heat exchanger when a hot water tap is opened. Sparking should be followed by a steady blue flame. If not, Call Bosch Water Heating with observations. Readings from above gas pressure test will be required.
Q. C1 - Fan rotation too low on startup
A.
  1. Disconnect power supply cord. Check wire connections on back side of fan and the two large wire connectors on the control unit. Removal of lower access panel on control unit is necessary to access connectors.
  2. Verify that supply voltage is 120VAC and is properly grounded.
  3. Verify that venting meets specifications outlined in chapter 3.6 of the installation manual. Long vent lengths, venting with more than three elbows, blocked vent or combination venting may cause this failure. Verify backdraft flapper inside flue gas collector is not stuck shut.
  4. Check gas pressure. See Bulletin TWH-G2-03. Low gas pressure may cause the fan to change its speed to meet desired temperature.
  5. Possible defective control unit. Call Bosch Water Heating for further instructions.

SOURCE: Keep getting error codes and have to reset too often

This paticular problem your having is specific to the jumper in the heater. The jumper is for condensing heaters. Your heater does not have the specific wiring or computer for condensing. So they added a jumper in the wiring. It is failed or failing. It should ohm out at about 120ohms. sometimes its just a loose connection. Check this out, and called 1-800-642-3111, they have been very busy, but leave them a message and they will call you back.

SOURCE: no hot water, pilot light lights but no burner ignition

Thermo coupler may be defective. it controls the main gas valve by closing main if pilot is out. make sure thermo coupler bulb is positioned over and near tip of pilot flame, but not in the flame. Thermo couplers are inexpensive and easy to change out.

What does an EA reading mean on my Bosch Tankless Hot Water Heater mean?


Error code EA - No sparks for the electrodes
The ionization electrodes are not making sparks when water is flowing. There are many reasons for this problem and here are some; low gas pressure, fan speed is low, wire connections are loose, the air in the gas line, no gas.
