▶ Ensure that only an authorized contractor performs electrical work.
▶ Before performing electrical work, disconnect the power and secure
the unit against unintentional reconnection.
▶ Ensure the system has been disconnected from the power supply.
Risk of scalding at the hot water draw-off point
▶ When the water heater is in operation, temperatures in excess of
122 °F (50 °C) can occur. To limit the temperature at the tap, install a
thermostatic DHW mixing valve.
▶ Water heated for washing the laundry, dishes and for other cleaning
purposes can cause scalding and permanent injuries.
▶ Children, elderly, and handicapped persons are more likely to be
permanently injured by hot water. Never leave such individuals in the
tub or shower unattended under any circumstances. Children must
not be allowed to operate hot water faucets themselves or to fill a
bathtub.
▶ If the building has occupants in the above groups who operate hot
water faucets, or state laws / local ordinances stipulate specific water
temperatures, take the following precautions:
– Use the lowest possible temperature setting.
– To prevent scalding, install a tempering device, such as an
automatic mixing valve, at hot water tap or water heater. Select and
install the automatic mixing valve in accordance with the valve
manufacturer's recommendations and instructions.
▶ Water exiting from drain valves can be extremely hot. To avoid
injuries:
– Check that all connections are tight.
– Direct exiting water away from people.
▶ Measures must be taken to protect against excessive temperature and
pressure! Installation of a T&P safety valve is required.
To protect against corrosion and ensure compliance with the rules for
electrical safety, observe the following points:
▶ Use metal fittings for potable water heating systems with plastic
piping.
▶ Use only original accessories from the manufacturer.
▶ When installation of the water heater is complete, inspect the ground
conductor (including metal fittings).

General rules to follow for safe operation
• 1. You must follow these instructions when you install your heater. In
the United States: The installation must conform with local codes or,
in the absence of local codes, the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54.

•
In Canada: The Installation must conform with CSA B149.(1,2)
INSTALLATION CODES and /or local installation codes.
2. Carefully plan where you install the heater. Correct combustion air
supply and vent pipe installation are very important. If not installed
correctly, fatal accidents can occur, such as carbon monoxide
poisoning or fire.
3. When the unit is installed indoors and ROOM SEALED (twin pipe) it
is permitted to be located in bathrooms, bedrooms and occupied
rooms that are normally kept closed. See chapter 4.3 (page 10). If the
unit will be installed indoors and use indoor combustion air, the place
where you install the heater must have enough ventilation. The
National Fuel Gas Codes do not allow UNSEALED gas fired water
heater installations in bathrooms, bedrooms or any occupied
rooms normally kept closed. See chapter 4.4 (page 23).
4. You must correctly vent your heater. See chapter 4.3 (page 10) on
VENTING.
5. The appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested before
placing the appliance in operation.
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual gas shutoff valve (not supplied with

heater) during any pressure testing at pressures in excess of ½ Psig
(3.5 kPa).
6. Keep water heater area clear and free from combustibles and
flammable liquids. Do not locate the heater over any material which
might burn.
7. Correct gas pressure is critical for the proper operation of this
heater. Gas piping must be sized to provide the required pressure at
the maximum output of the heater, while all the other gas appliances
are in operation. Check with your local gas supplier, and see the
section on connecting the gas supply. See chapter 4.9 (page 26).
8. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut off, turn off
the gas supply at the manual gas shut off valve, on the gas line. Note:
manual gas shutoff valve is not supplied with the heater but must be
field installed.
9. Do not use this appliance if any part has been underwater.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the
appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any gas
control which has been underwater.
10. Failure to install heater correctly may lead to unsafe operation and
void the warranty.

NOTICE:
▶ Do not reduce the exhaust or combustion air vent pipe
sizes.
▶ Do not common vent with any other vented appliance
or stove.
DANGER: Flue gas poisoning!
▶ Failure to vent the exhaust gases to the outside with
sealed stainless steel vent pipe (AL29-4C) may result
in dangerous flue gases filling the structure in which it
is installed.
WARNING:
▶ Do not mix vent pipe or joining methods from
different manufacturers.
WARNING:
▶ Approved terminators must be used for inlet and
exhaust vent systems to prevent rain from entering
the appliance. Failure to do so may result in damage to
the appliance. This failure is not covered under the
manufacturer’s warranty.

CAUTION:
▶ The vent system must be installed by a qualified
installer in accordance with these instructions. If
improperly installed, a hazardous condition such as
explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning could result.
Bosch Water Heating will not be responsible for
improperly installed appliances.
NOTICE:
▶ In areas where outside temperatures routinely come
close to freezing, sealed combustion operation is
required. Concentric termination or separate
terminations for combustion and vent, must be
installed on the same wall or roof surface; however,
never facing the direction of prevailing winds. Failure
to do so may result in heat exchanger freezing and
bursting. This failure is not covered under the
manufacturer's warranty.

4.3.2 Vent specifications
Install appliance as close to point of vent termination as possible. The
exhaust piping must vent directly to the outside of the structure.
Horizontal sections of vent must pitch upward towards termination ¼"
for every foot of horizontal length, to prevent the pooling of condensate,
and be supported at 4 foot intervals with overhead hangers.
Exception: horizontal run between last elbow and termination must
pitch down to termination 1/4" per foot. Note: For horizontal
terminations, venting must terminate once it penetrates to the outside of
the structure. There must be no sections of vent pipe exposed to the
outdoors other than the termination. Note: Listed thimbles or collars are
necessary where venting passes through wall and ceiling partitions. If
the vent system passes through combustible areas where the vent
clearance requirements cannot be maintained, it is permissible to chase
straight sections of sealed 3 inch single wall vent through 4 inch (or
greater) Type-B vent. The distance to combustibles using this chase
technique is 1 inch. Note: Type-B vent must never be used as the actual
exhaust vent system for the appliance, as it is not gas tight and illegal for
use with this appliance. This will create a serious health hazard and void
the warranty.

NOTICE: Risk of appliance freezing!
▶ Do not install condensate drain tubing in areas where
it may freeze.
Use materials approved by the authority having
jurisdiction. In the absence of other authority, PVC, and
CPVC pipe must comply with ASTM D1785, F441
orD2665. Cement and primer must comply with ASTM
D2564 or F493. For Canada, use CSA or ULC certified
PVC or CPVC pipe, fittings and cement, see table 5.
If an external condensate drain (installer supplied) must be installed
(chapter 4.3.2), the following is recommended:
830 ES
Installation instructions | 19
• 1. Install condensate drain on a horizontal section of the exhaust pipe
as close to the heater as possible.
• 2. The condensate must be disposed of according to local codes.
• 3. To install condensate drain in vent system, use PVC 3" X 3" X 1.5"
tee (part# 196278) and reduce for drain connection.
Listed below is an additional measure designed to further limit backdraft
in extreme conditions assuming all other possible causes have been
addressed.
Solution One
The Z-flex vent termination hood is the preferred option for limiting
backdraft under the following conditions (see fig. 23):
• The vent hood is only to be used in the exhaust vent piping.
• The vent hood can only be used for horizontal terminations.
• The vent hood is able to meet the required clearances outlined in the
venting section of the water heater‘s installation manual.

Part nr. 2SVSHTD04 for 4" venting
Solution Two
If the required clearances of the Zflex termination hood cannot be met,
the Zflex damper is the preferred alternative (see fig. 24).

4.3.6 Freeze prevention
In cold climates, components of a tankless water heater can freeze and
burst from negative draft. A leading cause of negative draft is
combustion appliances in the building not being supplied with sufficient
combustion air. A wood stove or furnace can pull its combustion air from
the water heater‘s vent pipe, allowing the cold incoming air to freeze the
cold water in the heat exchanger. Supplying more combustion air for all
combustion appliances is the solution. A HVAC specialist should be
consulted to design solutions for providing more combustion air.
830 ES
For this solution to be effective, the internal flapper must be 100%
closed when the water heater is not running. Refer to Figures 25 and 26
for preferred installation positions in the vent system.
If using the Zflex damper:
• Ensure directional arrow on damper label faces in the same direction
as exhaust flow.
• If installed horizontally, the axis must be horizontal or slightly pitched
up towards termination to ensure damper closes 100% when heater
is not running.
• To allow accessibility, damper must not be installed in an enclosed
section of vent pipe.
• Do not install damper in unconditioned spaces (e.g. attics)
Condensation can build up while the heater is running which can later
freeze and potentially block the flapper

4.4
Combustion air requirements
CAUTION:
▶ In areas where outside temperatures routinely come
close to freezing, sealed combustion operation is
required. Use a concentric termination or separate
terminations for combustion and vent, which must be
installed on the same wall or roof surface, however
never facing the direction of prevailing winds. Failure
to do so may result in heat exchanger freezing up and
bursting. This failure is not covered under the
manufacturer's warranty.
CAUTION:
▶ When installed in an environment where corrosive
chemicals or dirty air (e.g. hair salons, car washes)
are present the twin pipe system is required.
Twin pipe and Concentric pipe
The water heater is designed as a sealed combustion appliance. It is
recommended that the combustion air be provided by a dedicated 3” or
4” pipe from the outside (twin pipe) or by connecting to the Concentric
vent kit (see Fig.8, 9 & 10). The combustion air pipe may be PVC or any
other rigid sealed 3" or 4" pipe. The combustion air piping must pitch
down 1/4 inch per foot towards termination to prevent rain water from
entering the appliance. In twin pipe penetrations, the combustion air
inlet, whether terminating vertically or horizontally, must be located in
such a manner as to provide a minimum 3 foot clearance from the
exhaust vent termination. See Fig.11 and 12 Letter I, page 14.
For the maximum length of the combustion air pipe, see Table 9.
CAUTION:
▶ Terminations must prevent rain and debris from
entering the combustion air and exhaust vent piping.
Single pipe
WARNING:
▶ Single pipe venting is forbidden in manufactured
(mobile) home installations.
Note: This appliance requires 9950 cubic feet of available
combustion air, or a minimum of 1243 square feet of space with an
8 foot ceiling to operate. If the large amount of air space, which
equates to about half of most average sized homes, is not available,
the appliance must pull air from the outside (see twin pipe above).
Although it is permissible to draw combustion air from inside the
structure, it is not the manufacturer’s recommended installation
method. Always install a 3 inch elbow on the top of the combustion air
inlet adaptor to prevent foreign objects from falling into the unit.
If a single pipe installation is utilized, follow guidelines below for
providing adequate combustion air for the water heater as well as any
830 ES
other appliances that may consume air in the space. Always follow local
codes if they are more stringent.
This Installation Manual specifies the minimum vertical vent pipe and the
amount of combustion air required for this unit. When all requirements
are followed, the unit will operate properly and safely. However, there
may still be a risk of freezing due to negative draft if the other
combustion appliances in the building are not supplied with sufficient
combustion air. A wood stove or furnace can pull its combustion air from
the heater's vent pipe, allowing the cold incoming air to freeze the cold
water in the heat exchanger. Supplying more combustion air for all
combustion appliances is the solution. A HVAC specialist should be
consulted to design solutions for providing more combustion air.
Observe the following guidelines:
Installations in structures that have been tightly constructed (air
infiltration rate of 0.40 ACH or less) must be provided with combustion
air per the National Fuel Gas Code. Consult a HVAC specialist if your air
infiltration rate is questionable.
The space must have two permanent openings, one commencing within
12 inches of the top and one commencing within 12 inches of the
bottom of the enclosure.
• Appliances located in unconfined spaces:
– a) An unconfined space is one whose volume is greater than 50
cubic feet (1.42 cubic meter) per 1000 BTU/hr (292.81 Watts) of
the combined rating of all appliances installed in the space. That
would be 9950 cubic feet (281.8 cubic meters) for the water
heater alone.
– b) In unconfined spaces in buildings of conventional frame,
masonry, or metal construction, infiltration air is normally
adequate to provide air for combustion.
• Appliances located in confined spaces:
The confined space must be provided with two permanent openings,
one commencing within 12 inches (304.8mm) of the top and one
commencing within 12 inches (304.8mm) of the bottom of the
enclosure. Each opening must have a minimum free area of one
square inch per:
– 1000 BTU/hr (292.81 Watts) if all air is taken from inside the
building
– 2000 BTU/hr (585.62 Watts) if all air is taken from the outside by
horizontal ducts
– 4000 BTU/hr (1171.24 Watts)if all air is taken from the outside by
direct openings or vertical ducts
Or the confined space must be provided with one permanent opening or
duct that is within 12 inches (304.8mm) of the ceiling of the enclosure.
This opening must have a minimum free area of one square inch per:
– 3000 BTU/hr (878.43 Watts) if all air is taken from the outside by
a direct opening or vertical duct.
Louvers, grills and screens have a blocking effect, when used, increase
the sizes of your openings by 300% for wood louvers (as wood type will
reduce the free air by 75%) and 43% for metal louvers (as metal will
reduce the free air by 30%). Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code for
complete information. In buildings of tight construction all air should be
taken from outside.
4.5
Proper location for installing your heater
Carefully select the location of the water heater. For your safety and for
proper heater operation, you must provide combustion air to the heater
and a proper exhaust vent system.
Follow the guidelines below:
▶ 1. Locate the heater where venting, gas and plumbing connections
are feasible and convenient.
▶ 2. The hot water lines should be kept short and insulated to save
energy. Centrally locating the water heater is recommended to keep
hot water distribution times even throughout the structure.

Gas piping & connections
Before connecting the gas supply, check the rating plate on the right side
of the heater to be sure that the heater is rated for the same gas to which
it will be connected.
In the United States: The installation must conform with local codes or,
in the absence of local codes, the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54.
In Canada: The Installation must conform to CGA B149 INSTALLATION
CODES and/or local installation codes.
DANGER: Explosion hazard!
▶ DO NOT connect to an unregulated or high pressure
propane line or to a high pressure commercial natural
gas line.
GAS LINE SIZING
The gas supply piping for a single heater should be sized for a maximum
draw of 175,000 BTU/hr. Measure the length of gas supply line from the
building's gas main to the heater and use the chapter 4.9.1 and 4.9.2,
page 27 or the gas line manufacturer’s sizing tables to determine the
pipe diameter necessary. If there are more gas drawing appliances on
the line, size the gas line according to the total maximum amount of BTU
draw input rating of for all appliances combined.
Note: Undersizing the gas line may result in diminished hot water flow
rate and temperature. See chapter 4.14, page 31 for the procedure to
measure gas pressure. Proper gas pressure must be confirmed at time of
installation.
DANGER: Explosion hazard!
▶ The heater must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures equal to or more than 0.5
psig. If overpressure has occurred, such as through
improper testing of the gas lines or malfunction of the
supply system, the gas valve must be checked for safe
operation.
GAS CONNECTIONS
▶ Install a manual gas shut off valve on the gas supply line within easy
reach of the appliance.
▶ Install a union when connecting gas supply.
▶ The minimum internal diameter required for any appliance connector
is ¾ ”, see chapter 4.9.1 for more details on pipe sizing.
▶ Undersized flexible appliance connector not permitted.
▶ National Fuel Gas Code requires that a sediment trap (drip leg) be
installed on gas appliances not so equipped. The drip leg must be
accessible and not subject to freezing conditions. Install in
accordance with the recommendations of the serving gas supplier,
see fig. 2.
Fig. 33 Gas connection

[2] Cap
[LA] Minimum 3"
Once connections are made, check for gas leaks at all joints. Apply some
gas leak detection solution to all gas fittings. Bubbles are a sign of a leak.
A combustible gas detector may also be used to detect for leaks.
DANGER: Explosion hazard!
▶ If you detect a leak, shut off the gas. Tighten
appropriate fittings to stop leak. Turn the gas on and
check again with a gas leak detection solution. Never
test for gas leaks using a match or flame.

4.10 Water connections
NOTICE:
▶ This heater is not approved for preheated water
applications exceeding 140°F (60°C).
NOTICE:
▶ In applications where inlet water temperature can
exceed 140°F (60ºC), a 3-way valve or mixing valve
must be installed before the appliance to prevent
water exceeding 140°F (60°C) from entering the
appliance.
▶ When facing the heater, the ¾ ” cold connection is on the bottom right
and the hot connection is on the bottom left. Centrally locating the
water heater is recommended to keep hot water distribution times
even throughout the structure.
▶ Never sweat any piping directly to or beneath the water connections,
as damage will occur to the internal water valve from heating of the
pipe.
▶ Keep water inlet and outlet pipes to no less than ¾" (19.05mm)
diameter to allow the full flow capacity.
▶ If the cold and hot connections to the heater are reversed, the heater
will not function. Be certain there are no loose particles or dirt in the
piping. Blow out or flush the lines before connecting to the water
heater.
▶ Full port shutoff valves should be installed on both the cold water
supply and hot water outlet lines to facilitate servicing the heater (see
fig. 36).
▶ For installation on a private well system with the use of a pressure
tank, the lowest pressure range setting recommended is 40-60 psi
(2.75 - 4.15bar).
4.11 Water quality
Water quality can have an impact on appliance longevity and may void
the manufacturer's warranty.
For water analysis data call your local water department, or if on a well,
have well water analyzed periodically. If water quality exceeds one or
more of the values specified below, Bosch recommends consulting a
local water treatment professional for water softening/conditioning
options.

Connecting the pressure relief valve (PRV)
Fig. 35 Water filter
[1]
A listed pressure relief valve must be installed at the time of installation.
No valve is to be placed between the PRV and the heater. No reducing
coupling or other restriction may be installed in the discharge line. The
discharge line must be a minimum of 4” above a drain and installed such
that it allows complete drainage of both the PRV and the line. The
discharge line must be placed where it will not cause any damage.
The location of the PRV must be readily accessible for servicing or
replacement, and be mounted as close to the water heater as possible.
See fig. 36. To install the PRV, a suitable fitting connected to an
extension on a “T” fitting can be sweated to the hot water line.
Support all piping.
Water filter
▶ The use of unions when connecting both water pipes to the inlet and
outlet connections is required. This will facilitate any necessary
servicing.
▶ Plastic or PEX type plumbing line materials are not suitable for
connecting directly to the water heater.
▶ Although water piping throughout the building may be other than
copper, we recommend that copper or suitably rated stainless steel
flex line piping be used for the water connections for 1.5’ on either
side of the water heater (follow local codes if more stringent).

CAUTION:
▶ If the set point temperature is above 120°F,
precautions should be taken to protect users of
potable water from scalding.
CAUTION:
▶ Propylene glycol may be used for freeze prevention
ONLY on the space heating side of the heat
exchanger. Do not use ethylene glycol (automotive
antifreeze).

4.12 Domestic hot water recirculation
Although recirculation directly through the tankless water heater is
allowed, temperature stability is improved by recirculating through a
mini-tank as shown in fig. 37. By using the design in fig. 37, there is no
recirculation of hot water through the tankless water heater and
therefore, does not affect the heat exchanger warranty. Direct
recirculation through the tankless water heater is permissible, however,
the heat exchanger warranty is reduced; contact Bosch
Thermotechnology for further installation requirements. The following
drawing is provided to outline one possible recirculation design using
the water heater in conjunction with an Ariston mini tank water heater.
This schematic is for illustration only and must not be used for actual
Installation without appropriate engineering and technical advice from a
properly licensed professional in the locality where the installation is
made.
CAUTION:
▶ The use of a flow switch is recommended to ensure
DHW priority and to prevent “cold-blow” situations
when the Bosch tankless water heater is used with an
air-handling system. The flow switch should be used
to disable the blower on the air-handling system when
domestic water is used.
CAUTION:
▶ Ensure the primary pump is properly sized to provide
adequate flow for the system heat load. Ensure the
primary pump is properly sized to provide adequate
flow for the system heat load.
For Pump sizing please refer to the pressure drop
curves, fig. 38. Also remember to account for system
piping pressure loss. A minimum of 1.7 GPM is
recommended to provide adequate flow through the
water heater when determining the size of the primary
pump.
Bosch tankless water heaters are approved for use in combination DHW
and space heating applications (open-loop setup). These water heaters
are not approved for use in space heating only applications (closed-loop
setup). Bosch supports applications of combination DHW and space
heating in an open loop configuration if plumbed similar to fig. 39. Use of
a Bosch tankless water heater in a combination DHW and space heating
application will result in the product warranty being reduced to 3 years.

Setting the water temperature
The desired temperature of the hot water can be adjusted on the front
control panel of the heater.
The water heater has an electronically controlled gas valve that
modulates the burner input in response to both varying hot water flow
rates and/or changes in any incoming and outgoing water temperatures.
Note: The water heater, running at minimum BTU, may still achieve
temperatures above the desired set temperature. Low flowing fixtures
are the leading cause of this type of temperature overshoot. To combat
this symptom, clean fixtures or replace with higher flowing ones if
necessary.
Saving water resources:
Fig. 55

Use of optional remote control accessory (part no.
TSTAT2)
▶ Make sure you close all the taps after any use. Avoid leaving the taps
dripping. Repair any leaking tap.
▶ Define the temperature you want, in the appliance or with the remote
control. This way you have the precise water flow needed (mixing cold
water to regulate temperature will increase the water flow with
consequent waste of water).
The water heater will not ignite if inlet water temperature exceeds the set
point temperature less 9 °F (5 °C). In this condition, the solar mode
indicator will show on the LCD display. See fig. 51, page 33.

specifications
Pressure Relief
• Manually open the pressure relief valve to ensure proper operation
Inlet Water Filter
• Verify the inlet filter screen is clean and undamaged. The inlet water
filter is located on the bottom of the appliance, to the right of the cold
water inlet fitting. (See Fig.35, page 28). Close installer supplied
water shutoff and remove wireform spring clip from filter. Remove
filter, clean and or replace if damaged
Descaling
• In areas where the water supply has a high mineral content, the heat
exchanger should be flushed with a descaling solution. Scale build up
will shorten the life of the water heater and damage resulting from
scale is not covered under warranty. Refer to section7.3 for detailed
instructions on descaling the heat exchanger
Fin Coils
• Inspect heat exchanger fin coils for soot build-up or blockage. To
access fincoil, consult service bulletin at www.bosch-climate.us. If
there is evidence of soot build-up or blockage, the heat exchanger
should be removed by a professional and cleaned thoroughly
7.2
Winterizing for seasonal use
The water heater must not be installed in a location where it may be
exposed to freezing temperatures. If the heater must be left in a space
which is likely to experience freezing temperatures, all water must be
drained from the heater. If precautions are not taken, resulting damage
will not be covered under the warranty. NOTE: Use of agents such as
anti-freeze is not permitted and voids the warranty, as they may cause
damage to the water heater's internal components.
▶ Shut off the water supply to the water heater using (installer supplied)
shutoff valve.
▶ Open hot water taps to drain and relieve pressure from the plumbing
system.
▶ Drain water from the unit's heat exchanger by disconnecting inlet and
outlet water connections from the heater.
▶ Connect a line (A) from the outlet of the circulating pump (installer
supplied) to the inlet water fitting on the water heater (see fig. 62.)
▶ Using another line (B), connect the water outlet fitting on the water
heater. Route the other end of this line into a descaling reservoir.
▶ Using a 3rd line (C) from the descaling reservoir, connect to the inlet
side of circulating pump. Install a filter on the end of the line in the
descaling reservoir.
▶ Make sure all connections are "water tight.".
▶ Fill tank with descaling solution so both lines inside are submersed.
We recommend a straight white vinegar solution. If using a
commercial descalant, refer to manufacturer's instructions for proper
dilution ratio.
▶ Operate the circulating pump.
▶ Make sure there are no leaks and the solution is flowing from the
descaling reservoir through the heater and returning to the reservoir.
▶ Run solution through the heater until the solution returning to the
descaling reservoir comes out clear. (Changing to a fresh solution may
be necessary during this process).
▶ Disconnect all lines and drain all solution from heat exchanger.
Properly discard of solution.
▶ Position a container below the hot water outlet and connect cold
water supply. Open cold water supply shutoff valve and flush heat
exchanger with clean water.
▶ Shut cold water shutoff valve and reconnect hot water supply to the
water heater.
▶ Reconnect electrical supply to unit, open water shutoff valves, and
return the unit to service.
1. Press ON/OFF switch on the water heater to turn OFF the heater and
unplug power supply cord. The display should be blank.
2. Shut off gas supply to heater.
3. Shut off the water supply to the water heater using installer supplied
shutoff valve.
4. Open hot water taps to drain and relieve pressure from the plumbing
system. If water continues to flow after 5 minutes, a crossover of the
hot and cold water pipes is present and must be corrected before
proceeding.
5. Disconnect inlet and outlet water pipes from the water heater. Place a
small bucket underneath the water heater to catch residual water
remaining inside the water heater.
6. Using an air compressor, blow short bursts of air (100psi max)
through the inlet water connection until there is no water present
coming through the outlet water connection of the heater.
7. Reconnect water fittings and return heater to service when danger of
freezing has passed.
8. Empty condensate trap.
7.3
Mineral scale build-up
Periodic descaling may be necessary in areas with high mineral content
in the water. Scale buildup in the heat exchanger may result in lower flow
rates, error codes of A7 and E9 and boiling sounds in the heat
exchanger.
A water softener is required if the water hardness exceeds 6 grains/gal
(103 mg/l) calcium carbonate. Damage to the water heater resulting
from hard water/scale deposits will not be covered under warranty.

Troubleshooting
CAUTION:
▶ If you are unable to perform the tasks listed below, or
need additional assistance please contact your
original installer or a licensed gas technician.
8.1
Introduction
Many of the questions customers ask regarding operation of this unit can
be answered by following the troubleshooting steps as outlined below.
Visit our web site at www.bosch-climate.us for more detailed
troubleshooting. For best results, perform each step before proceeding
to the next. The suggested solutions may require that the cover be taken
off. (See fig. 3, page 8).
8.2
Burner does not ignite when hot water is turned ON
It is recommended to use “Control board diagnostics” page 38, chapter
7.6 as a tool for problem solving. If the display is showing a blinking two
digit code, refer to this section.
1. If the display is blank, verify power to outlet. (120VAC/60Hz properly
grounded circuit required). Verify that the heater power button is
pressed ON.
2. Verify the fuses in the control board are good. To access fuses, the
control board must be removed. See chapter 5.2, page 32.
3. Make sure cold water inlet connection is plumbed to the right side of
heater when facing unit. See Fig.34, page 28.
4. A minimum of 0.5 gallons per minute (1.9 l/m) of hot water demand is
required to activate the heater. Confirm at least 0.5 gpm flow by
timing how long it takes to fill a container. A quart container should fill
in 23 seconds or less, from hot water tap only, to activate heater. In
unusual circumstances with high inlet water temperatures and low set
temperatures, the heater may increase the activation rate above 0.5
gpm to avoid overheating at low flows. Gradually increase water flow
(hot water demand) through the heater to determine if the heater
activates with higher flow.
5. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 4.10, page 28.
6. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all shower heads,
faucet aerators and whole house filters are clear of debris.
7. Check for plumbing crossover. A crossover in the hot and cold
plumbing pipes creates back pressure on the water flowing through
the heater. Therefore, a higher flow rate than normal is needed to
force the heater to activate. To check for a plumbing crossover, shut
off the cold water supply to the water heater. Then open all of the hot
water taps served by the heater. Wait 10 minutes and check for water
flow at each tap. There should be no water flowing. Any continuous
flow of water, small or large, indicates a crossover is present and must
be corrected. Consult a professional plumber for help in correcting a
crossover. Failing single lever faucet mixing valves are common
causes of plumbing crossovers.
8. With the power button pressed switch turned to OFF and the power
supply cord unplugged, remove the unit's front cover (See fig. 3, page
8). Check wire connections between the water valve, control unit and
electrode set. See chapter13.2, page 50 for location of these parts.
9. Water heater in solar mode. If inlet water temperatures exceed the
water heater's set temperature, the burners will not ignite and the
solar mode indicator will show on the display. See fig. 51, page 33.
8.3
Water is too hot
1. Selected temperature on the unit is too high. To lower output
temperature, see chapter 6.4, page 33.
2. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 7.1, page 35 to increase flow
through the heater.
6 720 644 936 (2013/01)
3. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all shower heads,
faucet aerators and whole house filters are clear of debris.
4. Confirm the heater's gas type coincides with the type of gas being
supplied. See fig. 2, page 7 for location of rating plate.
5. Avoid restrictive outlets. Clean all shower heads and faucet aerators.
It may be necessary to upgrade to higher flow rate shower heads if
allowable by local code.
6. In areas where the water has a high mineral content, periodic
descaling may necessary. See chapter7.3, page 36 for directions.
8.4
Water is not hot enough
1. Selected temperature on the unit is too low. To raise output
temperature, see chapter6.4, page 33.
2. Clean inlet filter screen. See chapter7.1, page 35 to increase flow
through the heater.
3. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all showerheads,
faucet aerators and whole house filters are clear of debris.
4. Confirm the heater's gas type coincides with the type of gas being
supplied. See fig. 2, page 7 for location of rating plate.
5. Check inlet gas particle screen for blockage at gas inlet connection on
bottom of unit.
6. Verify gas pressure is in accordance with specifications in
chapter4.14, page 31. A gas pressure reading is needed to proceed
further. Contact your original installer or a local certified gas
technician to obtain this reading.
7. Cold water is mixing into the hot water lines (plumbing crossover). A
plumbing crossover can unintentionally mix cold water with the hot
water leaving the heater. The end result is a cooler water temperature
than desired. To check for a plumbing crossover, shut off the cold
water supply to the water heater. Then open all of the hot water taps
served by the heater. Wait 10 minutes and check all taps for water
flow. There should be no water flowing. Any continuous flow of water,
small or large, indicates a crossover and must be corrected. Consult a
professional plumber for help in correcting a crossover. Failing single
lever faucet mixing valves are common causes of plumbing
crossovers.
8.5
Low water flow/pressure
1. Too many hot water applications are being used simultaneously or too
much flow is demanded. The water heater will effectively support two
2.0-2.5 GPM shower heads simultaneously or multiple sink
applications. Greater draws will result in a water pressure drop and
reduced flow at taps.
2. Ensure that gas pressure is in accordance with specifications in
chapter4.14, page 31. A gas pressure reading is needed to proceed
further. Contact your original installer or a local certified gas
technician to obtain this reading. If gas pressure is inadequate, the
water heater will close its motorized water valve, reducing the hot
water flow rate in an attempt to reach the selected output
temperature.
3. If selected temperature on the unit is set too high for the demanded
flow rate, the water heater will close its motorized water valve,
reducing the hot water flow rate in an attempt to reach the selected
output temperature. Lowering the selected temperature will allow the
motorized water valve to open up for increased water flow rate.
4. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter7.1, page 35.
5. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all shower heads,
faucet aerators and whole house filters are clear of debris.

Troubleshooting | 41
8.6
Hot water temperature fluctuates at tap
1. Hot water is very hot out of the water heater, requiring mixing in cold
water in order to attain a usable hot water temperature. The addition
of too much cold will overpower hot water flow from the tankless
water heater.
If this slows the flow through the tankless water heater below its
activation point, it will shut off the burners. The end result is nothing
but cold water coming out of the outlet. Consult www.boschclimate.us for a detailed service bulletin on overcoming temperature
fluctuations.
2. Unbalanced pressure in water lines. Any restriction in the water
heater, such as a clogged inlet filter screen, can result in unequal
pressures between the cold and hot water lines. In such cases, when
mixing in the higher pressure cold water at the tap, the lower pressure
hot water can be overpowered. This will shut down the burners
because the hot water flow rate fell below the minimum flow rate
required for activation. Verify inlet filter screen is clean and clear of
debris. See chapter7.1, page 35 for inlet filter cleaning instructions.
3. Heater deactivated by temperature balancing valves. If the outlet
water temperature is set too high, the heater can produce
temperatures that are too hot. A temperature balance shower valve
will automatically mix in cold water to reduce the hot water
temperature. In the event of any temperature instability at a fixture
using a temperature balancing valve, refer to the valve manufacturer
for instructions on internal adjustment setting. An adjustment should
be made to minimize the amount of cold water the valve is adding.
Additionally, the temperature setting on the heater can be lowered to
prevent the temperature balance valve from mixing in too much cold.
4. Inlet water pressure is erratic due to fluctuating supply water
pressure. For installation on a private well system with the use of a
pressure tank, the lowest pressure range setting recommended is 40
- 60 psi (2.75 - 4.15 bar). Consult your installer or local plumber for
effective ways to maintain constant water pressure to the appliance
when on a well system.
8.7
Noisy burner/heater during operation
1. Sealed combustion leak. Make sure combustion cover is securely
fastened. Ensure the exhaust vent adaptor is properly sealed with
supplied gasket. Leaky seals create improper combustion resulting in
noise.
2. Improper venting. Venting that is unsealed, the wrong material, too
big in diameter or too long in run will result in unstable burner flames
and noise. Ensure venting is in accordance with specifications in
chapter4.3, page 10.
3. Lack of adequate combustion air. Drawing combustion air from a
room area of inadequate size will result in unstable burner flames and
noise. Improper piping of combustion air to the outside or insufficient
space will result in unstable burner flames and noise. Ensure
adequate combustion air is provided from the unit in accordance with
specifications in Section4.4, page 23 Combustion Air Requirements.
4. Cross contamination. Ensure that intake and exhaust terminations
maintain required clearances as stated in chapter 4.3, page 10. Cross
contamination between intake and exhaust may cause unstable
burner flames and noise.
5. Lack of gas pressure. Inadequate gas pressure will cause the fuel-toair mixture (CO2) to be out of adjustment. This will result in unstable
burner flames and noise. Ensure gas pressure is in accordance with
specifications in Section4.14, page 31 Measuring Gas Pressure. A
gas pressure reading is needed to proceed further. Contact your
original installer or a local certified gas technician to obtain this
reading.
6. Verify proper CO2 readings per chapter7.4, page 36. CO2
adjustments must be done by a certified gas technician with a
calibrated combustion gas analyzer.

Packing
The packing box may be fully recycled as confirmed by the recycling
symbol
.
Components
Many parts in the heater can be fully recycled in the end of the product
life. Contact your city authorities for information about the disposal of
recyclable products.
Saving water resources:
▶ Make sure you close all the taps after any use. Avoid leaving the taps
dripping. Repair any leaking tap.
▶ Define the temperature you want, in the appliance or with the remote
control. This way you have the precise water flow needed (mixing cold
water to regulate temperature will increase the water flow with
consequent waste of water).
