SOURCE: only goes on when I put hot water on full blast

hi, i expect the problem to be because the flow switch which activates the heater wont switch the heater on as it requires a certain amount of water to activate the flow switch & then bring it on.
It may also be thatthe sensor on the flow switch is scaled up so it needs a greater flow to keep the heater running?
Sensor or flow switch may need replacing.

kindly

Richie

SOURCE: not enough hot water. I have an Amtrol Extrol coil water heater

Since you mentioned 'both temperatures' it seems your unit is like most all of them, a lower and upper coil.
If your hot water supply runs out quickly, this normally means that the lower coil has failed. Since heat rises, the upper coil will never supply a tankful of hot water, just hot to start, and then as the flow continues, it doesn't have time to do more than warm the water flowing into the tank.
Every home should now own a simple digital multimeter; they cost less than $20 US everywhere and one can find them in auto parts stores, electronic supply companies and tool companies.
If you have a Harbor Freight tool store in your area, you can get them for under $10 US any time and sometimes even less:
Digital meter   
You need to be absolutely certain that the voltage to the water heater is shut down. Before you measure anything else, set the meter to its highest AC setting and check across the coils and then from either contact to the metal housing. If it is dead everywhere, then set the meter to the lowest Ohms scale (normally 200). The resistance of the coil should be nearly the same reading as when you simply short the meter's probe tips together. If it measures 'OL' then the coil is open and must be replaced.

SOURCE: extreme hot water then to consistent luke warm

Possible thermostat problem. Are you experienced enough in that area to do some testing. Have a multimeter? If not experienced, don't try it, too dangerous. Call in a service person.

02 Honda Civic LX heater blowing cold air


First off make sure the coolent level is full, take caution when you open the radiator if warm, should have pressure. If low figure out where it is leaking. No pressure when warm is a good leak telltail also. So if full, and thermostat is working, not stuck open, feel the heater hoses and see if the are both hot. They are on the engine fire wall, the water valve is mounted in line on one of the two hoses. It is cable operaterd, so conferm it is moving when you turn the temp control knob. if it is working check the blend door is working as well. It is in the dash and part of the ac/heater core box. By this point one of the above items should be it.

My 93 honda accord lx is over heating what do i do?


The first thing is to make sure the coolant is full, check it when the engine is cool, check radiator level, if coolant is full then check for bad thermostat, run engine and as it overheats check both hoses to make sure they are both hot, if one is hot and the other warm then you will need to replace the thermostat.if both hoses are hot then you may have a bad cooling fan or sensor, hope this is helpful.

The heat in my honda accord blow warm air.not hot


sounds like you have one of two problems first check at heater core lines going into heater core see if they are hot if only one is warm then it could be the thermostat but honda's have issues with hot water valve cable jamming up this valve is located behind engine near firewall on one of the heater core hoses.

1999 Honda Accord heater not blowing hot air


Sounds like a thermostat or cooling system issue. Change the fluid and the thermostat. It will do your engine good so it's money well spent.

In my 1998 Honda Accord Lx the hot air does not come out of the heater vents in the floor, the same is true for cold air in the middle vents on the dash. The side vents on the dash work fine.

Cannot get heat even after changing thermostat in 1992 honda accord what do i check next


Check the heater control valve. It is usually behind the engine up next to the firewall. Have someone inside the car move the heater control to heat. A lever on the heater control valve should move when this is done.

This valve allows hot coolant to enter the heater core inside the car. If this hot coolant doesn't arrive, you have no heat.

Replace heater core for Honda Accord 1992 LX 2.2L


It's probably the valve in the cooling hose that lets coolant flow into your heater core. This is up against the firewall about 3/4 of the way down on the passenger side. When you switch the knob from warm to cool, you should be able to see the little "arm" on the hose move back and forth. You may need someone else to watch as you move the temperature knob back and forth.

Also, watch out for over heating (not due to the valve), because it could mean that you could need to replace your water pump and/or thermostat in the near future. If you haven't replaced your timing belt recently (or if you have) and didn't change the water pump at the same time (Honda recommended) Your water pump could be failing.

Odds are pretty good though that it's just where the cable connects to the valve. It may have rusted over time and stuck, or broke the end of the cable, or just need lubricating/bending back into place.

If this is not the case, then you may just have a clogged heater core and should have your coolant system thoroughally flushed in the near future. If none of these work, you may need to replace your heater core.

Drop me a line when you check these over and I'll see what I can come up with.
