SOURCE: hot water coming out of overflow pipe on my vulcan everhot water

Assuming you are talking about the temperatur/pressure relief valve, it is stuck open.

1. Turn off gas or electric to water heater
2. Close water supply to water heater
3. open hot water faucet on nearest fixture to depressurize hot water system.
4. close tpr valve (you may have to push in on the center spine. It may be resistant to closing from sediment. If so, opening and closing several times may solve that issue.

Once you get the tpr valve closed, close the faucet and open the supply valve. If the tpr stays closed, go ahead and turn on the gas/electric and re-light pilot and turn on control etc.

If the TPR blows again, you will need to replace it. YOu can buy a new one at any plumbing supply store. Shut down the heater again, drain a bit of water out using the valve on the bottom of the tank. there is probably copper pipe connected to the TPR valve which you may have to cut or maybe can just unscrew. The TPR threads out of the tank, install the new valve (make sure to use pipe dope or teflon tape.

SOURCE: locked out of thermostate

From the manual:



PROGRAMMABLE KEYPAD LOCK
To prevent tampering with any of your settings or
temperatures, the front panel buttons and the rotary dial can
be locked out, requiring a four digit code to unlock them.
You may use either the default lock code of "0000", or your
own personal number combination (see "Changing The Lock
Code")


LOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in the
RUN position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along
with "0000". Press the NEXT button again for at least 2
seconds. A padlock should appear on the screen to confirm
that the thermostat is now locked.


LOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in the
RUN position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along
with "0000". Press the NEXT button again for at least 2
seconds. A padlock should appear on the screen to confirm
that the thermostat is now locked.

UNLOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in
the RUN position. A single press of any button should cause
the words "ENTER CODE" to appear on the screen, along
with "0000". If the default code was used to lock the
thermostat, press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The padlock should disappear from the screen, and the
thermostat should now be unlocked.
If you try to unlock the thermostat by entering a code that is
not correct, a padlock and the digits "88:88" will flash on the
screen and you will have to try again. If a lock code
different from the default was used, this will need to be
entered by using the UP/DOWN buttons, and the NEXT
button to advance to the next digit. Once the correct code is
entered, press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds and
the thermostat should now be unlocked.


CHANGING THE LOCK CODE: To create your own specific
lock code, first ensure that the rotary dial is in the RUN
position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds. The
words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along with
"0000". Now press the HOLD button again for at least 2
seconds. The words "SET CODE" will appear on the screen,
along with "0000".

IF YOU FORGOT YOUR LOCK CODE: You can still unlock the
thermostat by performing the following steps: On the back
of thermostat locate JP1, which is a row of 3 metal pins at
the right edge of the circuit board above the battery tray.
There should be a plastic jumper cap on 2 of the 3 pins
(right or left).


Move the jumper cap so that it is on the opposite 2 pins.
For this change to be recognized, move the Temperature
Mode switch to any other position than its current one.
These steps listed should have changed the lock code back
to the default of "0000". Follow the instructions already
listed in "UNLOCKING THE THERMOSTAT".

Have a new richmond water heater.there was no hotwater.i checked the water heater pilot was not lit.i relight it, it lite.turn to temp settings pilot went out.relit it againmade a explosion bom sound


the explosion was from a build up of gas that was not properly ignited by the pilot light or was leaking into the combustion box when there was no pilot light
there is a serious problem in the gas control system that needs urgent professional assistance to fix
you were lucky as it could have blown you out of the room
get in an experienced gas fitter as it is not a diy job

I have a tf325 bosch hotwater heater , problem is the flame will not stop when hotwater is turned off ?? Why and how to fix


After hot water has been drawn, the refill contents have to be heated to a set temperature in anticipation of the next demand. Otherwise, there would be a rush of cold or lukewarm water instead of hot.

I have an instant hotwater system with the futher most bathroom about 45' away. I am looking at adding a recirculating pump on a timer at the furthermost bathroom to get hotwater quickly in the...


Maybe I am not understanding your problem exactly, but if you have the instant hotwater system installed it should be measuring the temperature of the water in the hot water line and if it drops below the set level it should open the hot water side until the temperature is reached. If it was installed correctly it puts the hot water back into the cold water line so it isn't wasted.

there is a high and a low limit on these units, the two control knobs are actually the reverse of what you are trying to accomblish,first lower the bottom or low cut off temp first then the high temp ,it must cycle a couple times for it to adjust
