I have a power star ae115 electric tankless water heater. It has performed flawlessly for approximately 5 years. A couple weeks ago it stopped producing HOT water but is still heating to Luke warm. The "...


5 years is about the lifespan for tankless.
You might have shorted element. That would explain cooler water and tripping reset.
Test element: power is off, disconnect wires from element; ohms = voltage squared divided by watt rating of element

Aircondition builds ice on coil


Either lack of refrigerant, stopped up metering device or capillary tube/s, or lack of air flow (due to bad blower motor, or dirty indoor coil) Good luck.

The red pressure relief button on my GE Smartwater whole house water filter system is leaking what do i do to stop this


I had the same problem. The valve is not seating properly. I first took a plastic bag and placed it over the unit so it didn't spray all over, then, pushed the button several times to try to flush it. I then shut the water supply off (or move lever to bypass) and removed the cannister that holds the filter. I activated the red button several times until it looked like it seated well. Keep as much water in the cannister(sump) as you can and still have the filter seated properly. Screw it back on, and open the water supply slowly to fill the rest of the way. Don't push the red button again, but instead open a faucet in your house for around 5 minutes to let air circulate out. If the red button still leaks, you may have to try a few times. If it leaks just a little it may stop after a day or so. Once you get the red button to stop leaking, don't push it again! Just always use the open faucet method to work the air out. There will still be some air bubbles for awhile, but will work out within a day

Pump runs 5 minutes and stops


Move the slide switch to ON.
Open following link for recirculation system resources.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

The recirculation can work on either the timer or the thermostat using slide switch located next to the timer dial.
First of all, look to see if dial is rotating as time passes.
Next look at position of slide switch. If switch is moved to 'timer,' then the timer controls the on-off function for pump.
Move the pins located on timer dial to control on-off times.
If the switch is moved to ON, then the thermostat controls the pump, and turns on until temperature in pipe reaches 94 or 100 degrees F approximately. I forget exact cutoff temp.

Rheem gas water heater it won't stay lit...will lite up and go off after 20 seconds or so. If I leave it sit for 20 minutes the exhaust fans blows but no flame and I have to turn off gas and refire up to...


For the main gas valve to come on several conditions need to be met.

The system must detect a pilot light prior to turning on the main gas valve for systems with a standing pilot light (not sure what your system has) and on systems with auto igniters (spark or ceramic heat glo) the control board must detect a flame present at the main burner a few seconds after the main gas valve turns on.

The other condition that must be met on systems with power exhaust systems is a vacuum/pressure diaghram switch must be made and stay made telling control circuits that vacuum/pressure is present = power exhaust fan is on and working.

From your description it sounds as if you may have a dirty/failing flame detector (thermocouple). Remove it and give it a good scrubbing with a scotch brite pad etc. cleaning off any carbon or corrosion/gunk re-install and try it out, or simply spend $15.00 or so and install a new one to be sure. The thermocouple is the metal thin tube that protrudes into the pilot and/or main burner flame and is connected to the main gas valve by a thin capilliary tube.

To check the vacuum swich on the blower a multi meter across the switch terminals looking for a steady "state change" as the blower runs/stops will work.

High water temp


Have you done a reset on the board?

The reset function is used to restart the Temperature Control System after an error condition has been detected and
corrected.
Reset the control by pushing the red reset button on the controller. After a reset, the control performs self diagnostics
before normal operations begin. This takes approximately 10 minutes.

Then do the following if the flashes don't stop.

1. Make sure upper and lower access doors and insulation are
properly in place
2. Check element circuits for resistance of 5 - 25 ohms
3. Replace element if necessary and reset control system
