I have a G6A-3E heater. didn't work untill I cleaned the terminals on the t,stat It works but shuts off befor the water is hot!


Take a multimeter or 12 volt test light and probe terminals on Therm & ECO for 12 VDC power while running. When it shuts down and wateris not hot, test for voltage again at those terminals, If you have 12 volts to side of therm that goes to ECO beside it, then therm is ok, but then check opposite side of ECO as well. If power on one side of ECO, but not the other, the ECO is faulty. Simply walk across with probe testing for voltage when you find no power at one terminal but not the other, it's faulty, replace it.

My Rheem water heater is giving a ECO failure, How can I fix this?


Question posted under Rheem water heater.
Model number and gas valve are unknown. Add a comment.

Following information applies to typical tank-type gas water heater, and does not apply to tankless water heaters, boilers, indirect heaters, solar water heaters, etc or for electric water heater.

Electric water heater ECO is located on upper thermostat.
Open top cover and ECO can be reset by pushing in red reset button,
Or ECO can be replaced by replacing thermostat. Add a comment.

Open following link to see typical tank-type gas water heater ECOs:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intellivent-ECO-900.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Typical-gas-valve-500.jpg

The ECO will trip at 180-200 degrees F.
This happens when the thermostat fails, then the burner stays on, and the water will continue heating.

With most water heaters, the ECO is one-time use device and the gas control valve is replaced.
Some water heaters have resettable ECO, but the overheating problem has to be solved.
Each water heater is different.
Contact Rheem or read manual for correct procedure.

If you have intellivent gas control valve, open following links for typical service manual:

I have a Atwood GC10A-3E and the gas is working fine but the electric is not. i checked the element and went ahead and replaced it since i had it out anyways. i then relized that one of the wires had been...


Sounds like the new thermostat and ECO you installed, You may have got them mixed up. The ECO will have a small reset push button in between the 2 spade connectors. The ECO should be second in line, as in power to it comes from the thermostat. Hot (black) line from switch goes to thermostat first, then from opposite spade on thermostat to spade on ECO, then out from ECO to element. Double check wiring or positioning of thermostat and ECO, and correct as needed, and make sure to push reset in center of ECO, then try again. Be sure both are touching up against tank well too.
The thermostat has a little lower temperature setting, and if it fails, ECO takes over and cuts out at a little higher temperature. That's why I suspect they got mixed up, otherwise thermostat (without reset) should have cut power at proper temperature, unless it's faulty, or not touching against tank properly.

Let me know how you make out and what you found.

Water gets to hot and hot water spits air in line ? no water leaks


If it is DSI ignition, there is thermostat and ECO behind that little foam pad with letters on it "Therm", and "ECO", that may need to be adjusted, or replaced. As far as adjustment goes, you want to make sure disc is making good contact with tank surface.I must ask though, are you using city water hook-up, or on board pump to pressure system? As well, have you tried draining water heater and re-filling just to see if that helps?

Light flashing - lockout condition - ECO failure


The ECO is designed to shut off the water heater in case of the water heater overheating. This is to prevent the water heater from exploding. I assume that you have a newer style residental water heater or a commerical boiler. The ECO is a fuseable link that is built into the control and located at the thermostat probe. If the water heater overheats then this link will melt cutting the circuit on the millivolt system(residential) or 24volt system(commercial boiler). If you look under the water heater control(where the temp adjustment is) there are usuall two wires that go from the control to the water heater. These are the ECO wires. Verify the wires have not been cut or damaged. If these wires are cut or damaged then the ECO circuit will be incomplete and you will get the ECO lockout failure. Also make sure that the flame lock-out switch is not tripped. It will be located at the burner compartment cover and have two wires going to it. Most have a little button in the center. These are to sense high heat and one might have tripped closing the circuit. You can push this little button to re-set the switch. If you feel a little "click" then the switch was probably tripped. If it does not have any button then it might be "self resetting". To test that switch use a continuity tester and the circuit should be closed. If these switches are working then the fusable link for the ECO is probably bad from the water heater temp getting too high or was defective and failed. This will require you to remove the water heater control valve and replace the fusable link. If you do not have experience with this I suggest you call a licensed plumber to make the repairs. If this repair is improperly done it could void the warranty on the water heater and/or cause property/personal damage or injury. There is a possiblilty that your water heater thermostat had failed causing the ECO to trip. If that is the case then the ECO safety did it's job.
