Question about General Electric Profile Smartwater Ultra Plus Reverse Osmosis Membrane

1 Answer

No hot water

The water heater has been working just fine until this morning when, way less than, lukewarm water is coming out of the shower. The pilot is functioning good, and there's no exterior leaks or complications. Any possible answers?

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

My hot water isn't working. I'm wondering if it's because the pilot light is out... where is the pilot light so I can check?


You should be able to see the pilot light when it is dark outside. Even when it is not dark outside, you can probably see it if you peer inside, but you should also be able to hear it if you are in a quiet area. You can find the pilot light by looking at the heater and identifying the gas pipes: they are typically a little corroded and have valves on them. Just follow the gas pipe into the murky depths of the heater and look around for the blue flame. Sometimes you'll see a thin-diameter tube branch off and run in tandem with the main pipe: this conveys gas to the pilot light. Finally, you might have to open a little aluminum cover and peer inside. If you don't see a flame, you can probably identify about where it ought to be because you will see the main burners. Of course, the pilot light should be right next to the main burners and if you don't see/hear/feel heat there, your pilot is out.

Why does the water temp delivered from two Visu-temp valves in back to back bathrooms turn lukewarm after about 4 minutes.

Electronic ignition hot water heater (6gal) lights but wont get water hot. The red light inside my RV goes off and back on after about 3 minutes. When I checked the unit outside, the pilot is lt, but not...


check to see if setiment has settled on the pilot....blow it out with air if it has. This issue comes up often with water heaters and rv refers. If that is not the problem and the pilot remains lit, but never increases when the thermostat is turned up, you probably need a new gas valve/thermostat.

Not getting any hot water. Pilot light and burner seem to be working properly. Went from working fine in morning to not working at all this evening.


No hot water anywhere,or just one faucet,doesn't sound right if burner is working,if its coming on then your gas valve/thermostat on front is not working properly.Can be changed,but I would turn up temp. red dial see if she fires and watch to see if she stays on.Gas valve is threaded in and can be changed,depending on warranty.Could also be dip tube is cracked or broken in half,its a tube that forces cold water to bottem of tank,if not working you'll get a real short shower because cold water is in top of tank.Tube can be replaced,its on the cold water fill side which would have to be taken apart.Thinking now its your tube

Hot water comes out lukewarm


Pop out center of handle, and remove the screw from center, and remove handle. There should be a little nylon gear like sleeve that will pull out from center. Pull it out, and rotate it one way or the other, a little at a time, and slide it back in. Now just slide your handle on long enough to try it, no need to attach with screw yet until your done. May take a few tries to get it where you want it, then simply put handle back on, secure it with the screw, and snap cap back over screw.

When i turn on the cold water to adjust the temperature of water - the hot water turns completly off. I cannot turn on the cold water at all. It is either all hot water or all cold.


It might be a question of inadequate flow. All tankless water heaters have a minimum flow rate that must be met, typically .5-.9 gpm, before the heater will operate. In the summer time the incoming ground water temperature is higher, causing you to mix more cold water and less hot water to get a lukewarm temperature. This can reduce your flow rate near or below the minimum flow rate.
Here's a test for you, try running running a sink while taking your next shower. If the hot water remains mostly constant throughout, then your problem is with flow at the showerhead. The flow at a shower head can be reduced by buildup of scale and sediment. Also all showerheads have a flow restrictor that limits flow to 2.5gpm (some even less). Removing the restrictor will increase the showerhead flow rate as well.
Also look for any error code displayed on the digital read out of the heater. Some heaters will flash on their burner indicate light as well.

Lack of hot water from water heater


Unit needs a new "dip tube" It is cracked and allowing cold in water to mix with all hot water resulting in "lukewarm water". Need plumbing skills to change out at cold inlet top of heater,pull out old,buy new at hdepot 5.99 reinstall.

This has been a small manufactor recall on this matter

Please rate Thanks
