Question about Water Heaters
Hi, My spaceheater will run for a couple of hours then flashes both front panel indicator lights red, indicating air-filter cleaning required. But the filters arevery clean. Turning off the economy mode alleviates the problem, but thats not suitable for constant running. No error codes appear.
The filter light can also indicate a build up of debris and lind behind the heater causing the blower to work harder to push out warm air. It could also indicate that the blower may need a cleaning or going bad. I will suggest that you pull the front cover off of the unit to inspect the blower which is located at the top of the heater. Feel the motor as it is running to see if it is hot. If so, you will probably need to replace it. I may have a used on so let me know. If everything in front looks good, pull the top trim panel off of the heater just behind the filters and inspect for dust. Clean with a shop vac. Hope this helps.
