Many times the feeder tube from the bottom of the tank becomes perforated. the return tube is ok most of the time . try switching the 3 8 tubes from inlet to outlet and see if problem resolved. if so the the tube down into the tank is flawed.

My rheem gas furnace got red button that keeps griping what can I do.


The red button that keeps tripping is probably the rollout sensor just above the burner assembly. When this rollout starts tripping, it means your flue gasses are not being drawn out by the induction fan motor. If your furnace is a few years old, the fan blade has probably rusted out and is not moving the flue gas. You will need to get a new induction fan motor. While you are checking the induction fan motor, it is a good idea with everything torn apart to check the condition of your heat exchanger. When the induction fan blade rusts out, it is a good indicator the heat exchanger may need replacing also. So do yourself and favor and check it out for rusted out welds and the like. You will probably need an experienced hvac tech to make the furnace repair.
Hope this helps.

My goodman a/c unit wont turn on at all


Hi, not knowing if this is a central heat and air unit, or window unit, ect, I will say first to check the circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If you have no power, this could be the problem, it just over loaded and tripped the breaker. If you do find it tripped, be sure you shut it all the way off hard, and back on hard. If this is not the problem, and if you have a wall mounted thermostat, get back to me and let me know what we are working with as far as if it is a heat-pump, gas fired central heat and Air Conditioning, or what ever you may have, This will be of much help in solving you're problem.
Sincerely,

My immersion heater keeps tripping out and we have no hot water or central heating, blowing the fuse every time. could we need a powerflush ??


You have an electricl shortage in the system since it keeps tripping or blowing a fuse. Would suggest having system evaluated as soon as possible to prevent any further damage or injury. Good Luck on your repairs

If there is a hi-limit switch, maybe it's open, reset the switch, and monitor the temperature, if the temp. increases over the set temp. replace stat, and clean lime off from the tank, if does not have a filtering system

Heat not blowing on heat cycle


Have to know what kind of heat it is, Gas, Electric or Electric Heat Pump.

Heat pumps, when air over air type, have an extra setting on the thermostat labeled Emergency Heat, Although these thermostats can work on the other types of heating as well.

Both modern Gas and electric furnaces have the blower controlled by a blower board. The flame and or heating elements can also be controlled by the same or a separate board. SO you could have a board problem, or a safety switch or other symptom causing a safety switch to trip off on you.

Consult with your diagram and find something you can recognize then trace the wires down and follow to where you get the power to turn on the heat (usually always R feeds thermostat and W feeds Heat). Colors of the attached wires means nothing at this point. Look for the terminal designations not colors.

Hope this helps you. Please grade me accordingly and GOOD LUCK. :)

Vaillant Ecotec combi boiler - radiators working but no hot water flow to taps


David,

The fact that you're getting a little burst of domestic hot water suggests that the boiler is capable of circulating hot primary loop water through the heat exchanger, but doesn't necessarily do so when it needs to.

What seems to be lacking is a recognition that domestic hot water is now being drawn off, and that the boiler needs to fire up and divert the primary flow through the heat exchanger.

A good place to start might be the flow switch (usually in the bottom of the boiler, where the cold water supply comes in) or the electrical connections to it.

My Central heating wont come on. There doesnt seem to be any lights on the boiler/burner. Why could this be. First time I've tried to turn it on this season...it was fine back in february. Thanks!


Is the switch off?

Check the fuse panel/breaker box.

Is the thermostat switch set to heat?

Is system oil heat? If so check the following...

Some systems that use oil have an emergency switch (sometimes with a red plate) located away from the unit usually the basement staircase.

The oil systems also have a heat element above the burner on ceiling that "trips" if there is excessive heat. This shuts everything down so as not to feed a possible fire with oil.

Check the gun (burner itself) and try and locate a little red reset switch located near the back side of gun. Try pushing it in to see if its tripped.

If these quick checks don't help then it would be wise to call a technician to check your system for issues. Heating systems are too critical to "play" with and problems are best left to the pros for safety's sake. Good luck, I hope this helps.
