On demand hot water heater gets cold for a short while during showers.


Check for crossover.
Bad single-handle faucet cartridge causes cold water to enter hot pipe, so hot never arrives and tankless does not run consistAntly

Heater takes more than 1 minute to get water to kit faucet , then temp fluctuates


1) Guesses: Sounds like a bad single-handled faucet cartridge, or low water flow at faucet, or clogged water filter.
Replace faucet cartridge, clean the aerator, and/or clean sediment out of pipes below sink, and clean water filter at tankless unit each month.

2) For exact measure of problem:
Typical faucet can have 2 gallon per minute flow rate.
2 gpm flow rate means faucet fills 1 gallon container in 30 seconds. Test faucet using 1 gallon container and a cooking timer to get flow rate.
Clean aerator to improve flow rate. Compare kitchen flow rate with other faucets in home.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

Most homes have 1/2" diameter pipe running to kitchen faucet.
100 feet of 1/2" diameter pipe holds 1.2 gallons of water. This assumes no sediment build-up inside pipes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

Assuming only hot is turned on: If faucet is 100 feet away from water heater, and pipe diameter is unobstructed 1/2" diameter, and faucet has 2 gallon per minute water flow, then hot water should arrive in 36 seconds.
50 feet away, and hot water should arrive in 18 seconds.

If kitchen has single handled faucet, and the handle is raised in the middle, then equal amounts of hot and cold water are drawn at same time. This doubles amount of time for hot water to arrive.

If single handle faucet has a bad cartridge, then faucet can have crossover.
Crossover means that cold water can enter the faucet even if faucet is turned to hot.
Bad single-handled faucet cartridge can delay or stop the arrival of hot water.

Tankless require maintenance including cleaning combustion parts yearly, de-lime heat exchanger frequently, and clean water filter each month.

I own a watercooler 4 yrs old model # whkmd30The bottle water get extremely hot. There is good ventilation Any suggestions


Your water cooler has a Hot water section, also-- correct?-- You have 2 faucets, right?-- One COLD and ONE hot!
Is it possible that the section that does the HEATING, is stuck ON and is in some way heating the water back up thru the connection, into the big bottle?

Another possible thought: Is there a heater to prevent freezing of the bottle?-- Maybe it is stuck ON

Note: Your question ended up under Vacuums-- We are just trying to help-- Feel free to re-list your problem up there where water coolers are-- OK?

Sorry we couldn't be more helpful here in the Vacuum cleaner area-- :-)

Only warm water from the tub/shower


You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

Faucet may be bad also the safety stop will alow you to change water temp it can be tricky to adjust water temp.

My delta 132900 gets too hot.


With these Faucets, you can remove the handle and make adjustments to the max Hot water setting (scald guard).

You may also have a faulty or lime-covered cartridge.

SEE THIS SITE for making adjustments/replacing the cartridge.

I purchased a whirlpool 40 gallon hot water heater model #BFG1J4040T3NOV in November of '08. since its been installed i been having a problem with the water staying hot for more than 1 shower. After about...


Will the water stay hot in the kitchen sink? Try to isolate the problem. If it is happening at all hot water locations, then it will be related to your water heater. If just in the shower then it is related to the mix of water ratio coming out of the shower hear. If its only the shower, then you are getting too much cold and not enough hot through the pipes. This can be very simple to fix by replacing the handle going to the shower. If this does not work then you may have a problem in the hot water pipes. After you isolate the problem, please post another question here.
