My Takagi TK3 isn't heating as it should. Had a tech out and he adjusted the dip switches to 140 degrees, which worked for a while but now it barely heats to 100 degrees. Gas flow rate appears to be...


Is tankless computer older than 5 years? Imagine how well a 5-year old laptop computer works.

Setting temperature to 140 degrees might be the basic problem:
Read following resource:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#temperature

I doubt this Takagi computer unit was maintained as shown in product manual, and that heat exchanger was not delimed each year as shown in product manual. So the heat exchanger is probably heavily coated with un-removeable scale... since yearly deliming will not fully remove scale on tankless units, the tankless computer is designed to sprial downward in efficiency despite glossy brochures that promise endless and effortless hot water for 20 years ... as if any computer will last 20 years:

Since you are not getting error code, the problem might be crossover, or some other plumbing problem:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#no-error
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

I always recommend replacing tankless computer with tank-type water heater for $385 for same-day do-it-yourself solution and to save the endless expenses that arise with computer-driven water heaters.

My Jacuzzi J-N180F tankless water heater will not even light.


Access your product manual.
I cannot find a product manual.
Some major company, like Rheem, makes this computer that heats water.

Call service technician to repair the unit.
Copy following link for overview of type of problems found with tankless computers.
For example tankless computers require continual maintenance on yearly and monthly basis to prolong expected life of product.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

If tankless computer is older than 5 years, then assume it is like your 5-year old laptop computer.

Save problems, and repair the unit yourself, same day, by installing tank-type water heater:

Need manual for model # GE50M06AAG


GE is a Rheem-made product:
Any generic electric water heater manual will work for this heater since it uses same standard wiring, generic parts, and materials used for years to make electric water heaters. Nothing special. Except do not expect many specifics from any Rheem manual pertaining to insulation thickness or comprehensive troubleshooting.

Copy following link. Click on tab for specs and docs:

Registration new water heater


Unknown brand and type water heater.
Tank, hybrid, solar-assisted, indirect, tankless, condensing, gas, electric, under-counter, RV, mobile home, etc?

1) Water heater warranty-coverage does not require registration of product. Usually the registration can take place at manufacturer's site, but not all sites have registration forms.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#warranty
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-maintain-water-heater.html

2) Almost all water heater warranties cover original owner, one-family household installation, when product is installed according to product manual. SO if you register product, then move to new home and take expensive water heater with you, then the registration does not show new address, thereby voiding product warranty because it was relocated.

3) Warranties after first year usually cover parts and tank. Many warranties today are pro-rated, which means longer warranty is becoming almost valueless.

I purchased a hot water heater about two years ago from home depot and lost the reciept. I need to track the purchase by the serial number can that be done


1) Look for brand name of your heater on following .pdf file:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Find-Age-of-water-heater.pdf

2) Home Depot sells GE heaters made by Rheem.
I am assuming that serial number starts with 1209, and that year of manufacture is 09 for 2009.

3) These water heaters have glass vial that breaks when combustion chamber experiences overheating due to dirty combustion parts, clogged air intake, exposure to flammable vapor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-Rheem-TRD.html

4) Water heater warranties are usually first-year: full parts, labor and tank. After first year: parts and tank but no labor.
Warranty may be pro-rated and the value diminishes as water heater ages.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-maintain-water-heater.html

5) Warranty may not apply is customer has not followed installation and maintenance as shown in product manual, such as checking anode rod, and yearly service by trained technician.

Register water heater


Whirlpool water heaters are made by AOSmith company, which owns American, Reliance, State, Craftmaster and makes water heaters for Kenmore and Whirlpool.
These are good heaters.

Register Whirlpool product at following link:
http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/support/warrantyreg.aspx

It is not necessary to register product for warranty to be valid.
And if you move to new home and take water heater, then warranty does not follow. So it might be disadvantageous to register product in that circumstance.

You can see brand, model number, and serial number located on label on side of tank.
The serial number is unique and is key for warranty coverage, even if you lost receipt. Serial number shows year of manufacture in first two digits.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Find-Age-of-water-heater.pdf

It is not necessary to register water heater for warranty to be valid, as long as following applies: Original owner, single-family non-commercial residential installation, and installation that conforms to instructions shown in product manual, and water heater is maintained as shown in product manual.

If you purchased extended warranty, then remember the warranty is carried by a third party that also requires same as above.
And the warranty may be pro-rated, rendering it nearly valueless in later years.

Typical water heater warranty:
First year of warranty covers tank-parts-labor.
After first year, the warranty shrinks to tank-parts.
The math shows that shorter warranty tank has greater percentage of full coverage.
Convert ordinary 6 year tank into 9-12-15 year tank by maintaining water heater. Especially cleaning air intake located on bottom of tank, inspecting anode rod to prevent rusting, and following maintenance schedule shown in product manual.

Which one is compatable water heater to Rheemglas fury Model#41V50?


You have 6-year 50 gallon gas water heater:
42V50 would be the newer model number. They make tall and short models.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=CC643E03-4C15-4775-B139-E504A95651F7

All brands of water heater are good.
So any 50 gallon gas water heater from local box store or hardware is good product.
Tanks with longer warranty last longer. So 9-year and 12-year water heater will last longer, unless you have very hard water or odor in water and need to change frequently.
I recommend avoiding water heaters with electronic controls since they are not protected from power surge and can cost more to repair.

Before calling service technician, read manual troubleshoot section.
It is possible there is simple do-it-yourself solution.

BOUGHT THE UNIT IN JULY 2009 WORKED FINE UP UNTIL THREE DAYS AGO WHEN I RUN THE HOT WATER IT RUNS FOR A FEW MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF.


1) Rheem offers on-line chat, which you rarely see for typical tank-type water heater
http://www.rheem.com/products/tankless_water_heaters/customer_support/
http://www.rheem.com/hrc.aspx

2) Call local service technician, and put that person in your rolodex-wallet for future help.
Ask technician for tips and tricks for keeping unit working and needed maintenance.
They will gladly offer a yearly service.

3) Read manual several times to get accustom to yearly maintenance required for tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are maintenance heavy. All costs are energy.

4) Read manual several times and notice word troubleshoot appears many times.
Since tankless are complicated machines, many internal and external factors can affect operation, especially as unit ages.

5) Look at label on unit to identify exact product number. Identify same/similar product at Rheem, and become familiar with Rheem website
http://www.rheem.com/products/tankless_water_heaters/

6) Read other question/answers at fixya about Rheem tankless to become familiar with the tankless era
http://www.fixya.com/tags/rtg_74pvn

7) Install DIY tank-type gas water heater and avoid the whole headache
