Our tankless hot water heater runs cold sometimes.

Check for crossover: Where bad faucet cartridge or check valve lets cold enter hot pipe so hot never arrives at tap.
If problem is not plumbing, then add a comment and describe which water heater you have, including approx age and what has been done so far.
Call local plumber to fix tank-type heater
If you have tankless, call manufacturer to get list of local technicians who work on these computers that heat water, or save money and tear it off wall and install tank-type heater today.

Water heater not making hot water

1) Electric water heater can be repaired, no need for new one.
Copy following links:

2) Ordinary homeowner can turn 6-year electric tank into a lifetime tank.

3) If you replace heater, then buy inexpensive tank-type from local box store, and use coupon or offer 10% off. Read the product manual.
Avoid tankless at all costs unless you are rich.
No need to buy expensive water heater on the promise of thicker insulation or higher energy factor, or 'lifetime elements' or 'advanced technology', any other slicker promotion aimed at folks with the promise of a golden rainbow of money-saving-bliss if only you would spend more money. All costs are energy. Expensive water heaters do not pay back, and 1 repair will dissolve all anticipated savings. And expensive heaters can never be maintained to last as long as ordinary tank-type electric.

I have hotwater in the tank but none at the faucets.

By-pass may be faulty. Are you getting good pressure on hot side, even though not hot?

That doesnt work with these units they are manufactured gas specific. The manifold plate would need to be changed as well as notification to Noritz to have a new serial # issued. PC board reprogram required, etc. Buy a natural gas or LP model.

PowerStar. Model 45-557701 tankless water heater water wont get slowly quit getting the water hot

Hot Water Hot to Cold And back. I had that problem for 2 years. I had a very large shower head from the time I installed the tank-less hot water heater and the water temp would change from one extreme to another. Over time my shower head had stopped working as well as it did so I bought a smaller shower head and installed it and amazingly my water temperature quit changing temperature. I now turn my water to what temp I want and it stays there. It's been working correctly for 6 months now ... until yesterday and it quit working completely which is the reason I'm on here. lol

I had the same problem with my Paloma a year and a half after installation...contacted Rheem\Paloma\Richman customer service (800-432-8373) and they recommened a local installer in my area. The technican diagnosed the problem as the "flow control valve"; he managed to get Rheem/Paloma to cover the part under warranty...I only had to shell out the money for the install.
