My Bosch hot water heater puts out inconsistent water

Customer Question
My Bosch hot water...

My Bosch hot water heater puts out inconsistent water temperatures and sometimes cuts out all together.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

10yrs old and it is a GWH 2400

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it's simple. I'm not against hiring a verified technician.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so. It just terribly inconsistent.

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

First thing to do is check the filter screen on the cold water inlet connection. It's on the side of the fitting. Turn the water off to the unit, open a hot only faucet to relieve the pressure then turn the faucet off and unscrew the cap and clean the screen. If that doesn't work then you could have a water valve problem (was it ever rebuilt?) or other control related issue which is best left to a pro.
