General rules to follow for safe
operation
B 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 CGA
B149.(1,2) INSTALLATION CODES and /or local
installation codes.
B 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.
B 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 3.3 (page 8). 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 Code does not allow UNSEALED gas fired
water heater installations in bathrooms,
bedrooms or any occupied rooms normally
kept closed. See chapter 3.5 (page 16) and 3.4
(page 15).
B 4. You must vent your heater. See chapter 3.3 on
VENTING.
B 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).
B 6. Keep water heater area clear and free from
combustibles and flammable liquids. Do not locate
the heater over any material which might burn.
B 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
Section 3.8, page 17.
B 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.
B 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.
B 10. Failure to install heater correctly may lead to
unsafe operation and void the warranty.

The appliance should be located as close to the point
of vent termination as possible. The maximum vent
length is 26 feet (8 m) with one 90 degree elbow and
approved terminator. Subtract 2.5 feet from the total
vent length for each additional 90° elbow used (a
maximum of three 90° elbows are permitted in the
total exhaust vent length), or subtract 1.25 feet for every
45° elbow used. Horizontal sections of vent must pitch
6 720 608 782
Installation instructions
upwards 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.
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 inch1). 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.

Room sealed installation (TWIN PIPE SYSTEM)
Condensate drain requirements
A condensate drain must be installed under the
following conditions:
• All vertical terminating vent installations
• Horizontal terminating vent installations where the
total equivalent exhaust vent length is greater than 10
feet. See table 17, page 33.
Installing this water heater as a room sealed (TWIN
PIPE SYSTEM) is the recommended method. Contact
your dealer for available vent termination kits and vent
materials for this water heater.
The exhaust and combustion air piping must vent
directly to the outside of the structure.
Warning: 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.
• Vent installations where any section of the exhaust
vent pipe passes through an unconditioned space.
Note: Do not install condensate drain in areas where it
may freeze.
1. Install condensate drain as close to heater as
possible.
2. Use 3/8" ID high temperature silicone tube to
connect to condensate drain port. Do not use copper
piping for any portion of the condensate drain.
3. Form a condensate trap by means of a 3" loop
partially filled with water.
4. To increase the tube length, connect to end of the
high temperature silicon tubing with vinyl tubing, PVC or
CPVC pipe. Do not reduce the internal diameter at any
point.
5. Dispose of condensate according to local codes.

3.4
Combustion air requirements
Warning: 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.
Warning: When installed in an
environment where corrosive chemicals
or dirty air are present the twin pipe
system is required.
Twin pipe
The GWH 2400 ES 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. 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. 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 terminator. See Fig. 10
Letter I, page 10.
The maximum length of the combustion air inlet
is 26 feet with one elbow. Subtract 2.5 feet for
each additional 90° elbow and 1.25 feet for each
additional 45° elbow. Maximum number of
elbows permitted is 3.
Warning: Vent terminations must
prevent rain from entering the
combustion air and exhaust vent piping.
Single pipe
Note: This appliance requires 8750 cubic feet of
available combustion air, or a minimum of 1094
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 outside (see twin pipe system 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
6 720 608 782
15
Installation instructions
below for providing adequate combustion air for the
water heater as well as any other appliances that may
consume air in the space. Always follow local codes if
they are more stringent.
This Installation Manual specifies the minimum exhaust
vent length (Fig. 8, page 9) 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.
Each opening must have a minimum free area of one
square inch per:
• 1000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from inside the building
• 2000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by
horizontal ducts
• 4000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by
direct openings or vertical ducts.
Or the space must be provided with one permanent
opening or duct that is within 12 inches of the ceiling of
the enclosure.
This opening must have a minimum free area of one
square inch per:
• 3000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by a
direct opening or vertical duct.
Louvers, grills and screens have a blocking effect. If the
effective free area is not known, increase the sizes of
your openings by 300% if your louvers are wood and by
43% if your louvers are metal. Refer to the National Fuel
Gas Code for complete information.
3.5
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:
16
B 1. Locate the heater where venting, gas and
plumbing connections are feasible and convenient.
B 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.
Warning: The water in this water
heater is cold and always remains cold
except for the times the burner is on. In
the event of power outage in
conjunction with freezing temperatures,
it is recommended that the heater be
drained.
See chapter 6.2, page 27 “Winterizing”
for draining instructions.
Warning:
Flammable
materials,
gasoline, pressurized containers, or any
other items or articles that are potential
fire hazards must NOT be placed on or
adjacent to the heater. The appliance
area must be kept free of all
combustible materials, gasoline and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
3.6
Heater placement and clearances
The GWH 2400 ES is approved for installation on
a combustible wall (see chapter 3.7 Mounting
installation) provided the floor covering below
the heater is noncombustible. For installations in an
alcove or closet, maintain the minimum clearances to
combustible and non-combustible materials listed
below. See also Fig. 7 and Table 1 on page 7.
Clearances from any exhaust vent pipe are dependent
upon the clearance requirements of the stainless steel
vent pipe manufacturer. Single wall stainless steel
(AL29-4C) vent pipe (vent type rated for Category III
appliances) must be used when exhaust venting this
appliance. See chapter 3.3 (page 8) Venting.

INSTALLATION CODES and/or local installation
codes.
Danger: If you have 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.
Warning: DO NOT connect to an
unregulated or high pressure propane
line or to a high pressure commercial
natural gas line.
GAS LINE SIZING
Warning: 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.
The gas supply piping for a single heater should be
sized for a maximum draw of 199,000 BTUH. Measure
the length of gas supply line and use the tables in
Fig. 27, page 19 or the gas line manufacturer’s sizing
tables to determine the pipe diameter necessary to
accommodate the 199,000 BTU demand of the heater.
If there are more gas appliances on the line, size the gas
line according to the total maximum amount of BTU
input rating for all appliances.
GAS CONNECTIONS
B Install a manual gas shut off valve on the gas supply
line within easy reach of the appliance.
B Install a union when connecting gas supply.
Note: Undersizing the gas line may result in diminished
hot water flow rate and temperature. See chapter 3.12,
page 22 for the procedure to confirm gas pressure.
Proper gas pressure must be confirmed at time of
installation.

B Plastic or PEX type plumbing line materials are not
suitable for connecting directly to the water heater.
B 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).
Table 9
B Never sweat any piping directly to or beneath
the water connections, as damage can occur to
the internal water valve from heating of the
pipe.
B Keep water inlet and outlet pipes to no less
than ¾" (19.05mm) diameter to allow the full
flow capacity.
B 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.
B 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. 29).
B 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 and 4.15 bar).

Installation instructions
Connecting the pressure relief valve (PRV)
A listed pressure relief valve supplied with the heater
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. 29. 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.

Power
On
B To start the appliance press the On/Off button.
The desired temperature of the hot water can be
adjusted on the front control panel of the heater.
The GWH 2400 ES 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.
Saving water resources:
B Make sure you close all the taps after any use. Avoid
leaving the taps dripping. Repair any leaking tap.
B 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).

Annual maintenance
(To remove front cover, see page 6.)
Venting System
• Venting system - inspect inside of flue pipe for any
blockage or restriction. Observe burner flames
during heater operation. (Vent pipe must be
removed). Inspect the combustion air inlet pipe for
blockage or debris. Inspect combustion air and
exhaust terminations for blockage or debris.
Combustion chamber
• Inspect burner observation window (Fig. 63, #10) for
cracks or spillage of flue gases. Observe burner
flames during heater operation. Flames should be
steady and blue with no signs of yellowing. Yellow
burner flames are an indication of improper
combustion. Refer to Section 3.4 & 3.3 of this
manual to ensure that exhaust system and
combustion air supply meets manufacturer's
specifications.
6 720 608 782
Inlet water filter
Water filter
Descaling
• In areas where the water supply has a high mineral
content (see Table 9, page 20), the heat exchanger
should be periodically flushed with a descaling
solution. Scale build up will shorten the life of the
water heater and damage resulting from is not
covered under warranty. Refer to section 6.3 for
detailed instructions on descaling the heat
exchanger.
Heat exchanger fin coils
• Inspect heat exchanger fincoil for soot build-up or
blockage. To access fincoil, venting must be
removed from flue gas exhaust accessory. With
venting removed and inspect fincoil below with a
flashlight. If there is evidence of soot build-up or
blockage, the heat exchanger should be removed by
a professsional and cleaned thoroughly. To remove
the heat exchanger, consult service bulletin at
www.boschhotwater.com.
6.2
Winterizing for seasonal use
Installation instructions state that 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 as they may cause
damage to the water heater's internal components.
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 the plumbing system. If
water continues to flow after 5 minutes, a plumbing
crossover is present and must be corrected before
proceeding.
5. Open service valves (if available) or 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 outlet water connection
until there is no water present coming through the
inlet water connection of the heater.
11.Make sure there are no leaks and the solution is
flowing from the descaling reservoir through the
heater and returning to the reservoir.
12.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).
13.Disconnect all lines and drain all solution from heat
exchanger. Properly discard of solution.
14.Position a container below the hot water outlet and
connect cold water supply. Open cold water supply
isolation valve and flush heat exchanger with clean
water.
15.Shut cold water shutoff valve and reconnect hot
water supply to the water heater.
16.Reconnect electrical supply to unit, open water
shutoff valves, and return the unit to service.
7. Reconnect water fittings and return heater to service
when danger of freezing has past.
6.3
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 (knocking and banging)
in the heat exchanger.
Descaling using a pump
1. Disconnect electrical supply from the water heater.
2. Shut off the water supply to the water heater using
(installer supplied) shutoff valve.
3. Open hot water taps to drain and relieve pressure
from the plumbing system.
4. Drain water from the unit's heat exchanger by
disconnecting inlet and outlet water connections
from the heater.
6.4
5. Connect a line (A) from the outlet of the circulating
pump (installer supplied) to the inlet water fitting on
the water heater (see Fig. 52).
The CO2 can only be adjusted by a certified gas
technician with a calibrated CO2 analyzer.
6. Using another line (B), connect to the water outlet
fitting on the water heater. Route the other end of this
line into a descaling reservoir.
7. Using a 3rd line (C) from the descaling reservoir,
connect to the inlet side of circulating pump. Install a
filter on the end of this line in the descaling reservoir.
8. Make sure all connections are "water tight.".
9. Fill tank with descaling solution so both lines inside
are submersed. We recommend straight white
vinegar. If using a commercial descalant, refer to
manufacturer's instructions on dilution with water.
10.Operate the circulating pump.

Warning: If you are unable to perform
the tasks listed below, or need
additional assistance please contact
your original installer or licensed gas
technician.
7.1
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.boschhotwater.com for more detailed
troubleshooting and service bulletins. For best results,
perform each step before proceeding to the next. The
suggested solutions may require that the cover be taken
off. (See Page 6. Fig. 3).
7.2
Burner do not ignite when hot
water is turned ON
1. If the display is blank, verify power to outlet.
(120VAC/60Hz properly grounded circuit required).
Verify that the heater ON/OFF button is turned ON.
2. Verify the fuses in the control board are good. See
Section 4.2, page 23 of the installation manual for
fuse locations.
3. Make sure cold water inlet connection is plumbed to
the right side of heater when facing unit. See Fig. 28,
page 20.
4. A minimum of 0.65 gallons per minute (GPM) (2.5 l/
m) is required to activate the heater. A quart
container should fill in 25 seconds or less to activate
heater. In areas of warm inlet water temperatures, the
heater may increase activation rate to as high as 1.6
gallons per minute (GPM) to prevent overshooting of
set temperature.
5. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 6.2, page 27.
6. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all
showerheads, faucet aerators and whole house
filters are clear of debris.
7. The heater activates when the water flow through the
unit is at or above the required minimum of 0.65
GPM (2.5 l/m). A crossover in the plumbing 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 taps. 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 faucets
6 720 608 782
and mixing valves are common causes of plumbing
crossovers.
8. With the ON/OFF switch turned to OFF (O) position
and the power supply cord unplugged, remove the
unit's front cover (See Page 6. Fig 3). Check wire
connections between the water valve, control unit
and electrode set. See chapter 12.1, page 46 for
location of these parts.
7.3
Water is too hot
1. Selected temperature on the unit is set too high. To
lower output temperature, see chapter 5.4, page 25.
2. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 6.1, page 27.
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 5 for location
of rating plate.
5. Avoid restrictive outlets. Clean all showerheads 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 chapter 6.3,
page 28 for directions.
7. Ensure the outlet temperature sensor is making
contact and firmly mounted on the hot water pipe.
7.4
Water is not hot enough
1. Selected temperature on the unit is too low. To raise
output temperature, see chapter 5.4, page 25.
2. Clean inlet filter screen. See chapter 6.1, page 27.
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 5 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 chapter 3.12, page 22. 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
35
Troubleshooting
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 faucets and mixing
valves are common causes of plumbing crossovers.
8. Ensure the outlet temperature sensor is making
contact and firmly mounted on the hot water pipe.
7.5
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 chapter 3.12, page 22. 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 chapter 6.1, page 27.
5. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all
showerheads, faucet aerators and whole house
filters are clear of debris.
7.6
Hot water temperature fluctuates
at tap
1. Hot water is very hot out of the tap, requiring mixing
of cold water in order to attain a useable hot water
temperature. The addition of too much cold water will
overpower the hot water flow from the tankless water
heater.
This slows the flow within the tankless water heater,
decreasing it below activation point, which shuts off
the burners. The end result is nothing but cold water
coming out of the outlet.
Consult www.boschhotwater.com 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
36
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 chapter 6.1, page 27 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 water.
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 4060 psi (2.75 - 4.15 bar). Consult your installer or
local plumber for effective ways to maintain constant
water pressure to the water heater when on a well
system.
7.7
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 proper and in accordance with
specifications in chapter 3.3, page 8.
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 use of piping for combustion air will result
in unstable burner flames and noise. Ensure
adequate combustion air is provided to the unit in
accordance with specifications in Section 3.4, page
15, Combustion Air Requirements.
4. Cross contamination. Ensure that intake and exhaust
terminations maintain minimum required clearances
stated in the manual. Cross contamination between
intake and exhaust may cause unstable burner flames
and noise.
5. Lack of adequate gas pressure. Inadequate gas
pressure will cause the fuel-to-air mixture (CO2) to be
6 720 608 782
Troubleshooting
out of adjustment. This will result in unstable burner
flames and noise. Ensure gas pressure is in
accordance with specifications in section 3.12, page
22 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 chapter 6.4, page
28. CO2 adjustments must be done by a certified
gas technician with a calibrated combustion gas
analyzer.
