I assume it has a pilot. Try blowing out the pilot area with compressed air or CO2. Then relight the pilot.

Dust can cover the pilot combustion air inlet and cause it to pull away from the safety generator or thermocouple. Its called an oxygen depletion arrangement on some space heaters. I assume your Domestic Water Heater has this setup as well. Even if not the thermocouple is not getting all then heat from the flame. If this doesn't work get back to me here. We'll try 1 more thing.

If this helps you please grade me accordingly. GOOD LUCK

Low hot water pressure


I am not familiar with the model of heater you have but I thought I would mention; if you don't have a water softener and the thermostat is set to 140 degrees or above in a hard water area limescale can be a possible cause of your problems and it would be wise to take a look inside before you begin throwing money at it.

I have a Paloma Whole Home 7.4 GPM Water Heater, it is a propane heater. I bought this heater in 07 and I get the same problem ever year. When the weather gets cold and the water is cold the hot water...


If incoming water is too cold, tankless might not have enough time to heat the water as it flows by insince the heat exchanger.

1) You can passively preheat cold water using staging tank, or tampering tank.

2) Buy old water heater from plumber that is not rusted out.
Replace anode rod to stop further rust.
Rinse tank with water and hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria that results from anode rod.

Clean sediment out of bottom:

3) Don't forget, a tankless heater needs to be de-limed each year, and cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hard water.

4) Since all costs are energy, when you get tired of messing with tankless.

Bosch AquaStar tankless natural gas water heater pilot goes out periodically--after a few hours or a few days, whether weather hot or cold, whether windy or not. This condition has been the same from day...


I had a similar problem with mine and it turned out to be a plugged air vent sceen. This is the small dome like sceen on the gas valve. I vaccumed out the unit and have not had the pilot go out in over a year.

I have a vulcan freeloader 260 gas, how do i make sure it has water in the tank


The old freeloader is feed by cold at the bottom and the hot feed comes out the top. Basically if you are getting hot water out the hot tap (or any water out the hot tap) it has water in it. If you have any concerns post a new fault, I will keep a look out for it. These are great heaters, well worth looking after.

My reliance water heater pilot goes out every time its windy i have to relight it 5 or more times a day


You need to extend the flue vent 2 feet above the roof ridge-line. This will help eliminate the low pressure suction on the pilot light.
