Warning: For safety
reasons, disconnect
the power supply to
the water heater
before performing
installation.
Pre-installation preparation
B Disconnect power supply to heater.
B Remove plastic decals on front
panel.
B Remove the 5 screws on the front
retaining bar (see Fig. 2, pos. 1 and
2) being careful not to damage the
foam sealant material on it.
B Remove control unit auxiliary cover
(Fig. 2, pos. 4).
B Remove the two electrical strip
connectors inside the auxiliary cover
(Fig. see diagram below) and then
loosen the 110V power supply cord
retaining nut located underneath the
heater. Once loosened, the power
cord can be pulled up through the
heater to provide sufficient slack.
B Loosen two Philips head screws
located behind plastic decals.
B Lift front cover upward and remove.
Once auxiliary
cover is off, pull
off the two
electrical strip
connectors from
the board. Once
off, the wiring
harness can be
removed from the
case by pulling
their rubber seals
outward.

"Priority" function
Temperature cannot be
memorized or changed
using the heater's
control panel buttons or
a second remote control
when hot water is in use
(e.g. during a shower)
The "Priority" function
will automatically
activate to stop another
user from modifying the
temperature when hot
water is in use.
The remote control does not have a
default temperature setting and
therefore has no default "Priority"
function.The "priority" will be attributed
automatically by the first user who
selects or memorizes (on the remote
control or on the heater’s control
panel) a temperature for subsequent
use (e.g. a shower).
Then, when the hot water is used (e.g.
for a shower), the heater's display and
additional remote control displays will
show the symbol "
".
The temperature may only be modified
using the same buttons that set it
(depending on whether the control
panel or the remote control was used).
6 720 606 990
The priority device will not have the
symbol "
".
To clear a device that is locked out with
the "
" symbol (with no hot water
running) simply:
B press and hold both the "
" and
"
" buttons on that device for 5
seconds.
The "Priority" function ends:
• 5 minutes after the last use of the
hot water (return to basic set up).
• 2
minutes
after
selecting/
memorizing the temperature if no hot
water
is
used
immediately
afterwards.
Acquiring "priority”
Any user can acquire "priority" for
subsequent use of hot water, as
follows:
B Move the heater's main switch to the
ON position (I).
B Press and hold "
" or "
" to
select the desired temperature.
B Press and hold the "Program" button until the symbol "Pr" appears on
the remote control display.
B Use the hot water within two
minutes of acquiring "priority”.

Troubleshooting
Replacing batteries
When batteries are weak, the low
battery symbol (Fig. 10, pos. 5) will
appear on the display.
B Remove the two screws on the back
of the remote control.
B Open the battery housing and
remove the batteries, then replace
with new AA 1.5V batteries,
ensuring they are inserted correctly.
16
Verify that the rubber
seal is correctly fitted
between both plastic
housing parts.
Error messages
This device has an error message
system. Any errors that the heater
generates will be indicated by an error
code that will appear on the display
(Fig. 10, pos. 1) and by a symbol
indicating a "safety block" (Fig. 10,
pos. 7). The remote control will be
operative only after pressing the reset
button on the heater and clearing the
error.
To identify the type of error or if the
error will not clear, consult the heater
installation manual.

B Close the battery housing using the
two screws.
Warning: dead
batteries must be
replaced.
Consequently, the
manufacturer is not
liable for any faults or
damage caused by
dead batteries.
Dispose of the dead
batteries properly.

Cleaning
Use a damp cloth to clean parts of the

B Verify there is proper voltage to the
water heater (120VAC/60Htz).
B Verify the remote is within the
maximum distance from the water
heater of 98 feet.
B Ensure that no other device in the
area, such as a cordless phone, is
operating on a frequency similar to
the remote (915 MHz) and causing
interference
B Ensure that you are standing directly
in front of the water heater when
attempting to activate.
i
B Ensure that no other device in the
area, such as a cordless phone, is
operating on a frequency similar to
the remote (915 MHz) and causing
interference.
B Double check all wire connections
made under section 4.1 or section
5.1 of the remote control manual.
Pay close attention to the wire connecting the remote's PCB to the
heater's main PCB.
3. Remote display shows "- -" only
B Verify the water heater's ON/OFF
switch is turned to the ON (I)
position. If the water heater's display
is still blank, verify the heater is
plugged into a live 120VAC/ 60Hz
properly grounded outlet.

Large amounts of metal
or concrete in the
structure may have a
blocking effect on the
remote's signal. This
may alter the maximum
distance allowable from
the water heater.
B Move within direct
line of sight of the
water heater to see if
signal will reconnect.

Error codes cannot be reset by
using the remote. All errors must be

Troubleshooting
• If an error code is generated immediately after the installation of the
remote control transceiver PCB,
ensure that the electrical connectors
(Fig. 9) on the main PCB are properly seated.
• Error code may not be resettable.
Consult water heater's installation
manual or www.boschpro.com for
further troubleshooting on error
codes.

out device (remote or water heater)
until the "

Pos. 6) disappears.
B Do not use any hot water for at least
5 minutes. The priority function
should automatically clear after this
time period.
Memorization of a
selected temperature
only saves to the device
on which it was originally
programmed. To
retrieve a memorized
temperature setting, you
must use the device with
which it was
programmed.
