B

Damage or injury.

B

Improper operation.

B

Loss of warranty.

If you are unable to perform the tasks required to install this heater properly, please contact a locally licensed plumber or gas technician.

i

Common installation practice is to determine the venting/intake system layout and penetration and then work back to the heater.

3.3

Venting

Warning: Do not reduce the vent

(exhaust and combustion) pipe sizes and do not common vent with any other vented appliance or stove.

Warning: 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.

Warning: In areas where outside temperatures routinely come close to freezing, sealed combustion operation is required. Use 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.

3.3.2

Venting 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 sea led 3 inch single wall vent through 4 inch (or greater) T ype-B vent. The distance to combustibles using this chase technique is 1 inch 1). 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.

Installation instructions

3.4

Combustion air requirements

Warning: In areas where outside temperatures routinely come close to freezing, sealed combustion operation is required. Use twin pipe or concentric terminations for combustion air and exhaust, 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 (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 from the outside by a dedicated pipe (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. 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. 11

Letter I, page 12.

For the maximum length of the combustion air inlet pipe, see table 6.

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 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.

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:

B

1. Locate the heater where venting, gas and plumbing connections are feasible and convenient.

20

6 720 608 782

Installation instructions

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 32 “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 water heater 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. See Fig. 7 and table 1 on page 8.

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 9) Venting.

3.7

Mounting installation

Warning: before starting installation

B

Check that there are no loose or damaged parts inside the appliance

B

Confirm the gas type of the heater matches the gas supply you will be

connecting the heater, see Fig.

2, page 6. i

Front cover should be removed (see instructions on page 6) in order to inspect components visually.

Warning: Do not install this appliance on a carpeted wall. The heater must be mounted on a wall using appropriate anchoring materials.

Warning: In areas where outside temperature is routinely below 32°F and the heater is to be installed on the inside of an exterior wall, a minimum 2" air gap or rigid insulation between the heater back and the wall is recommended.

If wall is sheathed with plaster or drywall, it is recommended that two support boards, either 1”x4” or 1/2"

(minimum) plywood first be attached across a pair of studs, see Fig. 24.

B

Secure the wall mounting bracket provided with the heater to the wall surface. The heater must be kept level on the wall surface (see Fig. 25).

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.

22

6 720 608 782

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.

GAS LINE SIZING

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. 29, page 24 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.

Note: Undersizing the gas line may result in diminished hot water flow rate and temperature. See chapter 3.12, page 27 for the procedure to confirm gas pressure.

Proper gas pressure must be confirmed at time of installation.

Water connections

Warning: This heater is not approved for preheated water applications.

See chapter 3.11 for approved recirculating application.

Warning:

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.

B

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.

HOT

COLD

Fig. 30

B

The use of unions when connecting both water pipes to the inlet and outlet connections is required. This will facilitate any necessary servicing.

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).

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. 31).

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).

3.10 Water quality

Water quality can have an impact on appliance longevity and may not be covered under 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.

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. 31. 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.

3.11 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. 32. By using the design in Fig. 32, 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.

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.

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. 64, #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.

Pressure relief valve

• 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 inside the cold water inlet fitting on the right side of the appliance (See

Fig. 53, page 32). Close installer supplied cold water shutoff and loosen slotted screw on inlet fitting.

Water will drain from the appliance. Remove cylindrical filter inside.

Fig. 53 Water filter

Descaling

• In areas where the water supply has a high mineral content (see Table 13, page 25), 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 scale 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

Maintenance and service 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.

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.

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. 54).

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.

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.

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 28 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. 30, page 25.

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 32.

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 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 49 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 30.

2. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 6.1, page 32.

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 6 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 33 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 30.

2. Clean inlet filter screen. See chapter 6.1, page 32.

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 6 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 27. 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

38

6 720 608 782

Troubleshooting 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 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 27. 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 32.

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 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 32 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 40-

60 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 9.

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

20, 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.

Limited Warranty

14 Limited Warranty

General

Aquastar water heaters are warranted by the

Manufacturer (BOSCH) through Bosch

Thermotechnology Corp..

Bosch thermotechnology corporation will furnish a replacement heat exchanger and will furnish a replacement of any other part which fails in normal use and service within the applicable periods specified below, in accordance with the terms of this warranty.

The Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. replacement will be warranted for the unexpired portion of the original warranty. This warranty will be valid only for water heaters in possession of the original purchaser as recorded on the warranty card.

The Heat Exchanger

If the heat exchanger fails within twelve (12) years after the original installation and operation, Bosch

Thermotechnology Corp. will furnish a replacement heat exchanger. However, if the water heater is used within an approved hot water recirculation and supplied with circulated water, this heat exchanger warranty is limited to three (3) years from date of original installation and operation. If the water heater is installed in other than a single family dwelling, this heat exchanger warranty is limited to two (2) years from date of original installation and operation.

Exceptions

This warranty will not apply:

1. to defects or malfunctions resulting from failure to properly install, operate or maintain the unit in accordance with the printed instructions provided;

2. to damage or abuse, accident, neglect or freezing and other acts of nature;

3. to damage resulting from operation with either the flame sensor rod or overheat sensor removed;

4. to failure of the heat exchanger resulting from the operation of the water heater in a corrosive atmosphere or at water temperatures exceeding the maximum rating, or if the water heater is not supplied with potable water;

5. to defects or damage cause by any attachment or modification, including any energy-saving device.

• 6. to damage resulting from scale deposits and/or highly mineralized / unsoftened water supply.

All Other Parts

If any other part fails within five (5) years after original installation and operation, Bosch Thermotechnology

Corp. will furnish a replacement part free of charge.

Service Labor Costs

This warranty does not cover any labor costs associated with service, removal or re-installation of part(s). All such costs must be borne by the Purchaser.

Additionally, this warranty does not cover any labor costs associated with service, removal, installation or re-installation of the original water heater or a replaced water heater.

i

NOTE: the water heater must be free of damaging scale deposits and not subject to gas pressures greater than those shown on the rating plate, which must not be altered, defaced or removed.

How to Make a Claim

Any claim for warranty parts should be made to your local dealer or distributor:

BOSCH THERMOTECHNOLOGY CORP.

340 Mad River Park

Waitsfield, VT 05673

TEL. 800-642-3111 www.boschhotwater.com

Bosch Thermotechnology Corp.. However, all replacements are made subject to validation by Bosch

Thermotechnology Corp. of in-warranty coverage. The damaged or defective item must be made available in exchange for the replacement.

Miscellaneous

No one is authorized to make any other warranties on behalf of Bosch Thermotechnology Corp.. It is expressly understood that the replacement warranty of

Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. shall be in lieu of any and all other warranties, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use or purpose, and further that Bosch

Thermotechnology Corp. shall not be liable for any loss or damage directly or indirectly arising from the use of the hot water heater, or for any consequential damages arising from such use (including damages from water leakage). Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. sole liability with respect to any defect shall be for the replacement of the defective part(s). Some states do not allow such limitations and exclusions, so the above may not apply to you.
