The AQ125 BO is not approved or designed for:

• Manufactured (mobile) homes, RV's or boats

• Heating or other recirculating/pumping applications*

• Solar/preheat backup or high temperature booster use

* This includes domestic hot water circulator pump loop systems that may previously exist in a home hot water system. The use of a small electric mini-tank (4-6 gallon size) should be used for this application; when designed so the pump will circulate the hot water in the mini-tank only and through the building's hot water return loop (timed or thermostatic controlled operation of the pump is commonly done). The AQ125 BO should be plumbed in line before the mini-tank water heater, contact BBTNA if further instruction is needed.

2.4

General rules to follow for safe operation

B 1. You should 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 should conform with

CGA B149.(1,2) INSTALLATION CODES and /or local installation codes.

B 2. Carefully plan where you install the heater. Proper clearances must be followed.

B 3. 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).

The appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested before placing the appliance in operation.

B 4. Keep water heater area clear and free from combustibles and flammable liquids. Do not locate the heater over any material which might burn.

B 5. Correct gas pressure is critical for the optimum 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.

B 6. 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.

Introduction

Please follow these instructions. Failure to follow instructions may result in:

B Damage or injury.

B Improper operation.

B Loss of warranty.

Please contact BBT North America with any questions.

3.2

Proper location for installing your heater

Carefully select the location of the water heater.

Follow the guidelines below:

B 1. Locate the heater where an adequate gas line size and plumbing connections are feasible and convenient.

B 2. The hot water lines should be kept short to save energy. Centrally locating the water heater is best. It is always best to have hot water lines insulated to prevent the possibility of any freeze damage.

B 3. The water in this heater is cold and always remains cold except for the times that hot water is being used.

The heater is equipped with freeze prevention equipment that will operate and prevent freezing of the water in the heater to 5°F with no wind chill.

Electrical power must be maintained to the heater to allow this to function.

WARNING: Proper insulation of the water lines below the heater is required if below freezing temperatures, below

32°F, are ever anticipated!

Danger: If the temperature drops below 32°F, freeze damage to the water heater itself must be prevented by turning off the power to the heater, then disconnecting the plumbing connections, as well as removing the drain plug and introducing short bursts of compressed air (20-40 psi) through the heater's connections. This will remove the residual water in the horizontal pipes and water valve.

Danger: Keep children away as the top of the water heater vent cap will get very hot during operation. Install in a place that prevents the top of the heater being reached by small children.

8 716 473 147

Danger: Flue gases will be released through the vent cap. Flue gas is very hot and contains carbon monoxide. The heater cannot be installed indoors. To prevent risk of fire and poisoning by carbon monoxide, assure all clearances indicated in manual.

Danger: Surface temperature around vent cap is less than 140°F, except highest top surface of vent cap may reach 300°F.

Danger: Do not place or store any combustible material within 5 feet of the appliance. Risk of fire could be caused by hot flue gas.

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.

Installation instructions

3.5

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 should conform to CGA

B149 INSTALLATION CODES and/or local installation codes.

Note: The 125 BO comes with a gas pressure regulator installed. Disconnecting or altering the gas pressure regulator will be a violation of CSA certification of the unit. The regulator supplied with the heater is preset for the gas shown on the rating plate to the correct pressure. It is an appliance level regulator designed for (low inlet) pressure (less than 1/2 Psig or

14" W.C.).

Warning: DO NOT connect to an unregulated or high pressure propane line or to a high pressure commercial natural gas line.

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.

GAS CONNECTIONS

B Install a manual gas shut off valve, on the gas supply line.

B Install a union when connecting gas supply.

B The minimum diameter required for any appliance connector used is ¾”.

B 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.

When 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: 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.

HIGH ALTITUDE INSTALLATION

The pressure regulator provided with the heater is adjusted to deliver the proper gas pressure (as indicated on the rating plate and in the manual for altitude up to 2000 feet (660 meters) above sea level.

On appliances being installed above 2000 ft (660 meters) elevation, the inlet gas pressure should be set at installation to the value shown below.

Note: The gas pressures specified below refer to pressures taken at the pressure tap on the gas inlet pipe just above the regulator. See chapter 3.6 for measuring gas pressure.

GAS LINE SIZING

The gas supply piping should be sized according to the applicable code for a maximum draw of 117,000 BTUH.

Measure the length of gas supply line and use the tables in Fig. 9 or the gas line manufacturer’s sizing tables to determine the pipe diameter necessary to accommodate the BTU demand of the unit. If there are more gas drawing appliances on the line, size the gas line according to the total maximum amount of BTU draw for all appliances.

Note: Under sizing the gas line may result in diminished output and improper operation. See chapter 3.6 for the procedure to confirm gas pressure.

Measuring gas pressure

Connecting manometer

B Shut off gas.

B Remove front cover and locate inlet gas pressure measuring point on the right side of the gas valve.

B Loosen screw from test point on the left side of gas valve and connect manometer tube on test point.

Static pressure test

B Turn gas supply back on.

B Operate all other gas appliances on same gas piping system at maximum output.

B Record static gas pressure reading on back page of manual.

Operating pressure test

B Run high hot water flow rate.

B Set flow control knob fully clockwise.

B Set slide control to the right.

B Record operating gas pressure reading on back page of manual.

Gas pressures lower than 5.7" W.C. for Natural Gas or

10.5" W.C. for LP Gas will result in insufficient degree rise to the hot water being used, and must be corrected.

See Gas Line Sizing under chapter 3.5.

3.7

Water connections

When facing the heater, the ½” cold water inlet is on the bottom right and the hot water outlet is on the bottom left.

B INSTALL A UNION WHEN CONNECTING

WATER PIPE TO FACILITATE ANY

NECESSARY CLEANING AND SERVICING.

Although water piping throughout your structure may be other than copper, we recommend that copper piping or suitably rated stainless steel flex line piping be used for at least three feet before and after the heater (follow local codes if more stringent). Never sweat any rigid piping directly to or beneath the water connections, damage can occur to the internal water valve from heating of the pipe. Plastics or other PEX type plumbing line materials are not recommended for connecting directly to the water heater. Keep water inlet and outlet pipes to no less than ½" (12.7mm) diameter to allow the full flow capacity.

It is recommended that all water piping below the

heater be properly insulated to avoid heat loss. If below freezing temperatures are ever anticipated where the heater is located, insulation material is required and must be capable of protecting the piping from freezing.

The freeze protection provided with the heater will not prevent any freeze damage to the exterior water piping.

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 valves should be installed on both the cold water supply and hot water outlet lines to facilitate servicing the heater (see Fig. 9). For installation on a private well system with the use of a pressure tank, the lowest pressure range setting recommended is 30-50 psi (2.07 and 3.45bar).

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 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. 9. 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.

Electrical connections

Warning: Confirm that the water heater is appropriately grounded and that the installation meets all electrical codes. Outdoor electrical outlets have special requirements.

Warning: For safety reasons, disconnect the power supply to the heater before any service or testing is performed.

Warning: This heater must be electrically grounded in accordance with the most recent edition of the

National Electrical Code. NFPA 70. In

Canada, all electrical wiring to the heater should be in accordance with local codes and the Canadian Electrical

Code, CSA C22.1 Part 1. Do not rely on the gas or water piping to ground the metal parts of the heater.

Maintenance and service

5 Maintenance and service

5.1

Maintenance intervals

The 125 BO requires periodic maintenance. The below time maintenance intervals should kept the unit operating for many years.

Every year

B Inspect inlet water filter screen ( 5.2)

B Inspect pilot assembly and flame ( 5.3)

B Inspect burner assembly ( 5.4)

Every 2 years

B Lubricate and clean water valve ( 5.2)

Every 3 to 5 years

B Rebuild water valve ( 5.2)

B Clean pilot assembly and clean or replace orifice

( 5.3)

5.2

Water valve

The water valve is the main control that tells the heater to fire. If the periodic maintenance is neglected, more costly damage may occur over time.

Inspecting inlet water filter screen

Shut off the installer supplied cold water supply valve.

Disconnect water pipe going to the back of the water valve. Remove filter from back of water valve. Clean the filter and inspect for damage. Replace if the filter is at all damaged. Inspect the top of the water valve for signs of a water leak or corrosion. If present, rebuild the water valve. (See below).

Lubricating the water valve

A more detailed instruction is available on our website at www.boschhotwater.com. Shut off all water to the unit and disconnect water pipe going to the back of the water valve. Disconnect water pipe going to heat exchanger by removing pin and pulling pipe out.

Loosen two set screws at the base of the gas valve and drop the water valve down. Separate the two halves by removing 5 screws on the top of the water valve. Apply lithium or faucet and valve grease to the pushrod (see

Fig 13, pos. 23). Inspect and clean the venturi (see Fig

13, pos. 29).

Rebuilding the water valve

Several parts within the water valve should be replaced every 3-5 years. The parts list and instruction can be found on our website at www.boschhotwater.com.

5.3

Pilot

Inspecting pilot

The pilot should burn with a clean sharp blue flame. The flame should fully envelope the bend of the flame sensor rod. If it does not, clean the pilot assembly per procedure below.

Cleaning pilot assembly

Disconnect the flame sensor rod cable and the igniter cable by pulling gently down. Remove two screws holding pilot assembly in place. Loosen compression fitting and remove pilot assembly. Note: The orifice sits on top of the compression fitting DO NOT LOSE. Polish flame sensor rod and igniter tip with emery cloth. Clean out pilot assembly and orifice with carburetor cleaner. If heater is an LP unit, replace orifice. Caution: Do not enlarge orifice.

5.4

Main burners

The main burner flames should be blue, with a more intense blue cone in the center core. Yellow flames could be a sign of wrong size gas orifices or dirty burners, or a blockage on the heat exchangers fins. If some burners have yellow flames while others have good flames, it is likely that dust, lint or spider webs have partially clogged the burner venturis. To clean the burners, contact a gas service person.

5.5

Vent assembly

Inspect the draft hood and heat exchanger fins for signs of soot build-up or any other foreign material such as spider webs. Clean out any debris found in the vent hood. Signs of soot indicate insufficient combustion air or exhaust draft. Check for vent assembly blockage or combustion air blockage on the underside of the unit.

5.6

Mineral scale build-up

The 125 BO, when operated at lower temperatures settings, does not accumulate mineral build-up. If however, the heater is used at the higher temperature settings and the water has a high mineral content, periodic descaling may be necessary. The heating coils should be flushed with a descaling solution. Consult your dealer or BBT North America for instructions.

Consult your service person.

Troubleshooting

6 Troubleshooting

6.1

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. For best results, perform each step before proceeding to the next. The suggested solutions may require that the cover be taken off. (See chapter

3.4).

6.2

Pilot will not light

• 1. If the unit was just installed or the gas lines have been worked on, there may be air in the gas line. To bleed air out of the gas line, hold down the gas valve button while hitting the piezo ignitor button every second.

• 2. Check to make sure the manual gas shut off valve is in the open position. Have licensed gas technician or service person check the presence of gas at the gas pressure measuring tap on the left side of the gas control valve. If gas is not present, the regulator may be locked up and need replacing. See chapter 3.5 for required gas pressures.

• 3. Clean or replace the pilot orifice. See chapter 5.3

for instructions.

6.3

Pilot will light but not stay on when button released

• 1. When lighting pilot ensure the gas valve button is fully depressed and held down for at least 15 sec after pilot is lit.

• 2. Pilot flame should be blue in color and hitting the thermocouple tip. See chapter 5.3 for instructions.

• 3. Check the electromagnet connections. Electromagnet is located on the right side of the gas valve behind the piezo push-button assembly. The

Electromagnet connection is a large aluminum 17mm hex head nut. The thermocouple end is a 5 mm brass nut which screws into the 17 mm nut. Tighten both nuts snugly but do not over tighten.

• 4. Check if connections at the ECO are loose or corroded. Clean any corrosion with very fine sand paper or an eraser and reconnect leads.

• 5. If cleaning the terminals attached to the ECO did not fix the problem, connect a jumper wire between the two wires attached to the ECO and try to relight the pilot. If the pilot flame now remains on, the ECO may be defective and need to be replaced. Do not leave jumper connected.

• 6. Have a licensed gas technician verify the proper operation of the thermocouple by measuring the millivoltage from the thermocouple lead to ground.

The expected reading is 24mVDC or greater.

6.4

Burners do not ignite with water flow

• 1. Verify the pilot is lit.

• 2. Turn temperature adjustment knob all the way clockwise. Turn hot water faucet to full on position and fill a quart container. If the container fills in 30 seconds or less your flow rate (1/2 gallon per minute) is sufficient to activate the heater. If the knob is full counter clockwise, the container will need to fill in 14 seconds (1.1 gallons per minute) to activate the heater. Check for restrictions in the water line such as clogged aerators or a clogged inlet water filter screen if flow rate is not sufficient.

• 3. Clean water inlet filter screen. See chapter 5.2.

• 4. Shut off installer supplied cold water supply valve

(if none installed, install before proceeding). Open all hot water taps supplied by the 125 BO. Wait 5 minutes and check all taps. Water running is a sign of a plumbing cross-over. Consult a local plumber or service person for help in correcting plumbing crossover.

• 5. Verify the cold water supply is connected to the right side of the heater.

• 6. Service the water valve. See chapter 5.2 for intervals and instructions.

6.5

Hot water temp fluctuates from hot to cold

• 1. Shut off installer supplied cold water supply valve

(if none installed, install before proceeding). Open all hot water taps supplied by the 125 BO. Wait 5 minutes and check all taps. Water running is a sign of a plumbing cross-over. Consult a local plumber or service person for help in correcting plumbing crossover.

• 2. Check for restrictions in the water line such as clogged aerators, clogged shower head or a clogged inlet water filter screen.

• 3. If hot water is so hot that a large amount of cold water must be introduced to lower temperature to comfortable level, lower output temperature. See chapter 4.4 for instructions.

• 4. Check the inlet water pressure. For installation on a private well system with the use of a pressure tank, the lowest pressure range setting recommended is

30-50 psi (2.07 - 3.45 bar). Confirm that the pressure tank is not water logged.

8 716 473 147

17

Troubleshooting

• 5. Service water valve See chapter 5.2 for intervals and instructions.

• 6. ECO (overheat sensor) tripped due to overheating re-ignite the appliance 10 minutes later. If it happens again, contact your service person.

6.6

Water is too hot

• 1. Check gas type on right side panel rating plate.

NG is a natural gas unit and LP is for liquid propane.

• 2. Since the unit does not measure incoming water temperature, the output water may be warmer in the summer than in the winter. Use the slide control to lower output temperature as outlined in chapter 4.4.

• 3. Contact your service person if water temperature does not lower per procedure outlined in chapter 4.4.

• 4. Check the inlet water pressure. For installation on a private well system with the use of a pressure tank, the lowest pressure range setting recommended is

30-50 psi (2.07 - 3.45 bar). Confirm that the pressure tank is not water logged.

• 5. Service water valve See chapter 5.2 for intervals and instructions.

• 6. ECO (overheat sensor) tripped due to overheating period Re-ignite the appliance 10 minutes later. If it happens again, contact your service person.

6.7

Water is not hot enough

• 1. Adjust the temperature per chapter 4.4.

• 2. Shut off installer supplied cold water supply valve

(if none installed, install before proceeding). Open all hot water taps supplied by the 125 BO. Wait 5 minutes and check all taps. Water running is a sign of a plumbing cross-over. Consult a local plumber or service person for help in correcting plumbing crossover.

• 3. While the heater is running with full hot water flow, the flames should be 3-4" tall off the burner bed. If the flames are not this tall, have the gas pressure measured per chapter 3.6 by a license gas technician or your service person.

• 4. Service water valve See chapter 5.2 for intervals and instructions.

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:

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. 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).

For increased safety shut off the appliance from the main water supply if your are staying away from home for a considerable time.

At below freezing temperatures, disconnect the plumbing connections to the heater and allow the heater to drain.

To prevent any freeze damage, introduce short bursts of compressed air (20-40 psi) through these connections to remove the residual water in the horizontal pipes and water valve.
