Heater in bath fan will not work

I would like to know how to troubleshoot the heater, the fan works on vent only and the light works but not the heater

    I checked the element it was okay. I now think it may be the switch because it uses the same fan for heating and venting and when I turn switch to vent the fan comes on but not when I turn the switch to heat.

Jacuzzi tankless water heater code 12 appears


For my Jacuzzi tankless water heater model #J-SN180F: It turned out to be an exhaust issue. If I take off the exhaust vent completely then the talks heater works with 3 baths at full hot water. I get the error code 12 again as soon as I put event an elbow of the vent. So my conclusion is I need some sort of straight vent.

Bradford White gas power vent water heater; just replaced power vent motor and fan assembly because a bearing went out. Now the new fan motor runs constantly without igniting. Is there a switch that...


Some how you have disconnected the sensor that tells the main burner that the fan is on. Its trying to light but cant. On some models there is a air pressure switch that reads the pressure inside the vent pipe itself. It will have a small hose on it and if that has cracked or was not replaced it wont light. This is how its supposed to work--- vent fan comes on,sensor confirms fan is on,hot surface ignighter starts to glow red,and main burner is opened,another sensor confirms that main burner is lit,then hot surface ignighter turns off. Hope this helps.

Hot water heater not venting properly.


Hi .. it appears that your house is very tight. From your description of leaving a window open , it seems that the gas heater is suffering from lack of make - up air. Forcing the gas exhaust up the chimney will not really resolve this. You will still be trying to move air out without any air input to replace it. You may be able to install a spring loaded vent so there will be an air exchange. Something like a dryer or bath vent hood installed backwards .. this might work. There does not need to be much of a make-up air supply .. something like a 1 inch hole might be enough. I have seen this problem in a neighbors house , he weather proofed his house so good, that his fireplace would not light, no draft !

Any thoughts, concerns?

I have an old nutone 656 bath fan and I need to reinstall it and it has 4 wires I need to know how to hook it up


It should be black, white, red and green. Black and white are your hot and neutral legs, green is your ground, and red is your heat leg, heat and light should be controlled on seperate switches, both 110 i believe

Ihave a new water heater.Worked for 3 days.Now back to Ice baths


All new tank-type gas water heaters for the home are designed with Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant systems. It sounds like the unit has shut down because of a venting problem. If it is a Rheem or Ruud (General Electric for Home Depot) you have to reploace the heater. Other brands alow for resetting this safety device. Don't take chances with gas if you are not absolutely sure of what you are doing - have a professional licensed plumber check out the problem.
