Bosch Hot Water Heater Fault or Error Code F7 Troubleshooting Guide
A Bosch hot water heater code F7 is showing – what does this mean?
If you own a Bosch continuous flow hot water heater with the optional water remote controller installed then you have the convenience of knowing when a fault occurs within the appliance.
Bosch have provided advanced technology within their tankless hot water heaters, thanks to their 127 years of industry knowledge, to allow a fault code to display on the hot water temperature controller in the event of a hot water heater error.
If a Bosch fault code F7 flashes on your hot water digital monitor this is advising that a flame is detected within the unit even though the appliance is turned off.
How does a Bosch continuous flow hot water heater work?
With a continuous flow, or instantaneous, hot water heater the system detects when you turn a hot water tap on. The gas burner lights up and a heat exchanger heats your water as it passes through the appliance. The amount of gas is modulated by a thermostat to maintain the pre-set water temperature.
A constant flow of hot water is delivered to your tap until you turn the tap off, and then the appliance will automatically shut off until you require hot water again.
With the Bosch continuous flow hot water systems the burner will not ignite until you open your hot water tap. Meaning that it is important to rectify a Bosch error code F7 upon first notification.
Bosch fault code F7 troubleshooting
To resolve the Bosch error code F7 on your hot water heater you should first turn the appliance off at the power for at least 10 seconds and then restart the appliance. Also press the power button off and then on again on your water temperature controller. If the F7 fault code is still showing you will need to call a qualified technician.
