Bosch Hot Water Heater Fault or Error Code E13 Troubleshooting Guide

Bosch has been a top contender in the Australian hot water heating market for more than 60 years and has over 127 years’ experience in the industry.

Bosch hot water system

Bosch pioneered the continuous flow hot water heater during the late 1800’s and has continued to expand on their technological advancements ever since.

When you choose a Bosch hot water heater for your home or commercial property you can trust that you are receiving an innovative product that is highly energy efficient. A hot water heater that is ideally suited for the ever changing Australian climate conditions and one that provides durability and value for money.

Bosch have incorporated a smart feature into their hot water systems to allow for a self-diagnose of any faults that occur within the unit.

Should something go wrong with a part within the storage tank, or continuous flow unit, a Bosch fault code will display on the temperature controller’s digital monitor.

A Bosch hot water error code that may display at one point is E13.

What does the E13 Bosch fault code mean showing on my hot water heater?

Error code display E13 on your Bosch hot water heater signifies a fault in regards to the positioning of the top storage tank temperature sensor.

This Bosch fault code will only show on the Bosch Compress 3000 heat pump. The Compress 3000 water storage tank has a two temperature sensors located within the cylinder – one at the top and the other at the bottom.

The storage tank temperature sensors provide feedback to the heat pump to allow the correct temperatures to be maintained. If the E13 error code is showing then you will also experience either no hot water or a hot water temperature that is at a dangerous setting as the sensor cannot relay the correct information for the system to operate as intended.

Troubleshooting the Bosch hot water E13 fault code

When it comes to repairs to your Bosch hot water heat pump you should always enlist the services of a fully qualified technician. The Bosch error code E13 will require the unit panel to be opened to allow for the top tank temperature sensor’s position to be investigated and rectified, or for the part to be replaced.
