bosch tankless hot water heater
Model Number: 125HX Brand:
1 - 5 years
does anyone know where I can get parts for my bosch tankless hot water heater besides that "houseneeds" place on the internet ? Mine has the hydrogenerator that makes the spark to light the gas using the moving water (like hoover dam) and I am not getting the spark. Is it possible to convert this model over to one that has a battery supplied spark or even one that uses a transformer to take 110 volts down to the 1.3 volts used. I wonder if I can take a regular battery and substitute it for the hydrogenerator. Can anyone give me some advice on this thing...someone said that I should have bought a "Rinnai" tankless...now they tell me !!
Actually, I have had good luck with the bosch for three years...it made the water too hot (incoming water in miami is around 70 degrees) and I had to turn the unit down ! Bosch (via "houseneeds") will only sell the complete hydrogenerator for $110 plus shipping...all that I think I need is the flow wheel/magnet that probably costs $2. Does anyone know what the magnet looks like when new ?? I cannot tell if the two "seams"in the magnet are cracks or not...they are equally opposite each other on the round face of the magnet ?? Put the voltmeter on the leads coming out of the hydrogenerator and got zero volts (should be 1.3 volts)...I wonder if that is dc or ac coming out of the hydrogenerator ?? Maybe that is why it was zero volts...I was using the dc meter.
