Question about Water Heaters
I am living in Spain where they sell Neckar boilers. This one in particular has got massive flames mostly yellow which are carbonising and causing smoke, is there a regulator for the butane input. Thank you.

it sounds to me like the dip tube has failed. this is a plastic tube that is inside the water heater on the cold side. It is designed to put the incoming cold water at the bottem of the tank allowing heated water out at the top. when this tube deteriorates the cold water mixes at the top of the tank instead of the bottom. a new dip tube is about 5 bucks but must be inserted on the cold side by someone with plumbing experience.

the pilot is getting too much air and is an indicaiot of dirty or air/ fuel ratio imbalance. The pilot is wimpy and the thermocoupler has alot to do with the gas . Make sure your thermocoupler is on the tip of the flame. You may end up replacing it. because it is showing signs of eminnt failure. When it fals your curners won't fire up. Good luck.

It sounds to me like you tried about everything I would. So I think you're already thinking about what I would do next. Try the flame sensor,and as last resort check all connection . Remove wires one by one clean and reattach. If all else fails change cotrol board. It's very hard to fix when it's not consistent. Good luck. Thanks

2) Clean air intake, and check if air intake is clogged, causing overheating caused by reduce air intake and slowed exit of combustion by-product up the vent.
