SOURCE: I painted the floor & my hot water heater (Reehm

The water heater is locked out. The following process should reset it.
1. Reapply power to the water heater and wait for 3 seconds for the system self-diagnostic check.
2. Within the first 30 seconds, the temperature dial must be rotated back and forth crossing the 120
degree mark at least six (6) times. This will reset the control and display a normal flash code
(slow blinking).

SOURCE: Atwwod 10 gal gas/elec water heater won't work on elec.

THE LIGHTED SWITCH SHOULD BE THE 12V ENERGY SOURCE TO ACTIVATE THE LP SIDE OF THE HEATER. THERE SHOULDN'T BE A LIGHTED SWITCH FOR THE 110 SIDE. THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH OR A COMBINATION OF SWITCHES. ONE ON THE WALL LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH AND ONE MOUNTED BEHIND THE HEATER.

Boiler does not fire up sometimes and takes around 5 minutes to fire up when it does.


If you've had it for about 18 years it may be time for a replacement or, at the very least, a boiler repair. I had mine replaced three months ago and it was 15 years old. I think that it is important to make sure that you replace important things like this about every 15 years just to ensure that everything is working properly and is up to date. How long have you had issues with it? Because if it has worked really well up until recently then all you probably need is just the repair though. Bailey Plumbing and Heating and Air Conditioning

Rheem model 11125007


This model has one sacrificial anode, located underneath a plastic cap. Drop water pressure, unscrew anode.
It's long. There are two types available, magnesium and aluminium. Replace like for like.
Magnesium is for soft/treated town water, aluminium is for harsher water.
The condition of the anode you take out will tell you if you timed it about right.
Needs doing every 5 to 6 years, along with the relief valves.
Mine was made in 2006, about to do this job for the second time.

My hot water heater will not ignite it stopped working overnite? its a whirlpool 50 gal model number BFG2J5040T3NOV


Sounds like the thermal couple may be shot I thought that was the problem with mine but it needed air to supply the burner I took the cheap steps first like working on a motorcycle or car I know that you can buy the whole burner with the thermal couple assembly, I got mine from a plumbing company it was used but in better shape than mine if its not very old it can be fixed I KNOW mine is working just fine!! Beware of the plumbing companies the will give up and try to sell you a new one to skip the grunt work really isn't as hard as it may seem!! What have you to lose???

How ofter should a Rheem 81V80D A be replaced.So far no problems but is on the second floor. 11 years old.


They don't need to be replaced until you have a problem with it leaking or an element burns out. You can replace the element yourself if your handy. So you won't have to replace unless you have it leaking.

The burner lights runs for 2 to 3 seconds then goes out


If you have an older heater I would replace the thermocouple. They tend to burn out, as mine did on my furnace. Relatively easy to replace if you have any home repair skills at all. They can be purchased at any hardware store and come in different lengths. If not have a trained heating expert do it for you.

My old Aquastar tankless natural gas water heater used 1/2" gas line. My new Bosch 2700ES -NG says it requires no less than 3/4" inside diameter gas line. Do I have to replace all the gas supply lines...


None !!
3/4 pipe from gas meter or regulator. At low pressure there may not be enough gas flow through a smaller pipe for the boiler when on full bore.
The boiler input pipe will be 1/2" needing a reduction from 3/4 so there is some leeway.
I have about 8' of 1/2 pipe on mine [Bosch Worcester] from the reg. and it is ok.
You could use the existing 1/2 and try. No harm done if insufficient-just replace. If you have some other gas takeoff on the same line a 3/4 pipe up to that take off is most likely.
