What the Blazes is Error Code FA
If you are seeing an error code reading FA, on your Bosch hot water heater temperature controller, it means you have an issue that needs addressing. You may attempt to solve this issue on your own, but if you find you need a qualified plumber for a Bosch error code, Jim’s Plumbing is here to help at all time of the day.
What Does the Bosch FA Error Code Mean in Relation to My Hot Water Water?
The Bosch error code ‘FA’ will flash on the digital monitor of your temperature controller if there is a fault with the hot water system’s gas control valve then. The gas valve in your continuous flow hot water heater controls the amount of gas that is let into the unit and controls the water temperature. When you turn on your hot water tap a valve is pressed allowing a small amount of gas to be sent to the pilot head and then the thermocouple will send a small electrical current to the gas control valve.
The gas control valve will then send an electromagnet to open a safety valve to allow gas to continue to flow within the unit while you require hot water. The gas control valve has a safety limit and if reached it can shut down the hot water heater completely.
Bosch Error Code FA Repairs
The FA error code display for the Bosch hot water heater is a rare occurrence as the gas control valve will rarely have an issue. Other faults that could cause the FA error code to display may be in relation to a faulty thermostat, burner or thermocouple.
You will require the services of a fully qualified and insured technician to investigate the reason why the Bosch FA fault code is displayed on your hot water heater.
