It sounds like you have air in the lines! If you drained your radiators, you need to remove the pressure valves at each radiator, one at a time to release the air in each when the pressure is building up! Be careful, it may also be a faulty valve that is clogged or stuck. They are supposed to release the air automatically!

SOURCE: FH error

You are correct..
FH is an indication the the machine is not sensing enough water flowing into the machine....
The only thing you can do without taking the machine apart is to disconnect the water hoses to the back of your machine and inspect the filter screens for any type of debris that might be restricting water flow into the machine. Typically, the cold water line is more susceptible to foreign matter than the hot waterline.
If screens appear OK then the problem may be with the water fill valve, water flow sensor, (flowmeter) water pressure switch or blockage in the water pressure switch hose.

However.. if everything is fine using just cold, verify hot water for proper pressure or possible kinks in the hose.

Your cold water celenoid has gone out. There is no way to just replace the cold itself, So you have to buy the whole water valve. That will fix ya up!

SOURCE: low cold water pressure

Could be sticking plunger in valve, if youn have ascertained that the pressure is o/k,\then I would suggest a new valve is called for.

SOURCE: hot water doesnt work, switch to warm and warm comes out.

If the cold works on cold wash but the hot don't work on hot wash . Then yes the switch is bad.give What model is it?

The inlet valve that the hoses attach too the solenoid for the hot side may be stuck closed or clogged with sediment. May need new inlet valve.

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.


There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.

Mixed Water Fill Causes Issues with Water Pressure


You will have to be specific about what problem the pump is having. It seems to pump ok for everything else. Could the hot solenoid be shorting and sending electricity down the water to bother the pump? Solenoids are not real expensive, try a new one.

No hot water


if the leak is behind the handle take the handle off and tightn the packing nut, do not over tighten, as far as luke warm water is this with just one facucet on, they way these tankless water heaters work they are by gpm, gallons per min, if you have more gallons of water going thru the unit then it is designed for then it won't get hot, if your water pressure is to high going thru it will push it to fast thru the unit and won't get hot, your house pressure should be no higher then 75lbs no lower then 65lbs

Parkray Cumbria efficiency problem


Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.

Tire maintenance


Check your tire air pressure at least once a week and before long trips. Be sure to use an accurate pressure gauge. -Check your air pressure when the tires are cold. The tires are cold when your motorcycle has been ridden less than a mile at moderate speed or after being stopped for three or more hours. -If you must add air when your tires are hot, add four pounds per square inch (4 psi)(28 kPa) above the recommended cold inflation pressure. Recheck the inflation pressure when the tire is cold. -Never release air from a hot tire in order to reach the recommended cold tire pressure. -Normal riding causes tires to run hotter and inflation pressure to increase. If you release air when your tires are hot, you may dangerously under inflate your tires. -If your tires lose more than two pounds per square inch (2 psi)(14 kPa) per month, the tire, the valve, or wheel may be damaged. Consult your local dealer for an inspection. -Use valve caps to keep valve cores clean, clear of debris and to help guard against air leakage.

Rinnai R53 Natural Gas Tankless Water Heaters


It sounds like the Rinnai units are working correctly but you've got some plumbing problems.  Any tankless heater has a minimum water flow required to keep the burners going.  If the burners were going with very little water flowing through them to carry the heat away, the heat exchanger could overheat and fail.  The solution is generally to the electronic controls to set the desired temperature and then just use hot water.  Once you start mixing cold water in, you actually reduce the flow of hot water and the burners turn off.  If you are right near the cut off point, the burners will cycle on and off resulting in those very annoying hot-cold-hot-cold showers.  
The fact that you've got those very loud noises indicates some other sort of plumbing problem.  Hooking up two tankless units in series is much more complicated. In heavy draw situations, the second unit is asked to finish heating the water up to temperature when the first unit couldn't quite get it there. Now you're putting hot water into a heater and heating it more.  You have a lot more issues with fluctuating temperatures and pressures within the pipes which could conceivable cause these horrible noises.  Everything's got to be set up right to for things to function properly and it's easy to get something wrong.
From your description, it sounds like a better solution would have been to mount the two heaters in different places. e.g. One in the basement to serve basement and first floor faucets.  The other on the second or third floor to serve those two floors.  Since these units are direct vent (don't use inside air), they can even be mounted in a closed closet as long as the vent can get to the outside.  With this setup you avoid the complexities of a series installation and you also have a much shorter wait time (and therefore less waste) for the fixtures on the upper floors.
