SOURCE: GOT THE HEATER RUNNING FOR 5 HOURS YESTERDAY BUT

Hi Barry,

Turn off al power... drain the header manifold. Remove the top cover and remove the pressure sensing line from the pressure switch. Clean out the line and the manifold fitting with a piece of wire. Reinstall manifold drain plug. Reconnect rigid pressure sense line to manifold and pressure switch. Make sure the sense line does not leak or it can cause the unit not to heat at all. Leave the power for the heater off and circulate water for a few minues to flush header manifold then Test the unit. If this does not correct the problem... respond with the complete model number and we can continue troubleshooting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

If you have a by-pass valve be sure it is closed or almost closed. Also check your baskets and clean your filter. All of these will give the heater low pressure and keep it from running.

WE HAVE A COZY GAS HEATER HAVE TRIED TO REPLACE THE THERMAL COUPLING AND THE HEATER LIGHTS AND SHUTS OFF AFTER FIRST CYCLE WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE IT HAS A HEAT SENSOR ON THE BACK COULD IT BE THAT


If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Our gas was shut off and when it was shut back on the tankless water heater not working. I can hear the pilot clicking but no flame.


Hello,
Since it was turned off, there is probably some air in the lines, which may require several attempts to light it again. This is normal, especially on longer gas lines. If you have any other gas appliances, (furnace, stove) try lighting them also to help purge the gas lines and eventually it will get the right mixture of gas to relight the water heater too. Douglas

Heater Wont light


If it has been off for a while you probally just have to bleed the gas line out. Shut off the gas valve at the heater and then open the union at the heater. Turn the gas back on till you can smell gas. Shut it down and close the union then turn the gas back on and try it again.

My pro comp heater will light the pilot but will not light the heater. It just sparks attempting to light, after a while it will shut off completely.


Could be your thermocouple. The spark should light the pilot and the pilot lights the main burner but if the thermocouple doesn't pick up the heat from the pilot the igniter will keep trying to light it until it times out and shuts off to prevent gas buildup.

The pilot light will not turn off after the burner is on... I think it over heats, because it will just shut off after several minutes.... any suggestions? Thank you


The pilot light must remain on, even when the main burner is on, to keep the thermocouple hot. If the thermocouple cools off, the gas flow shuts off. It sounds like something is interrupting the gas flow. If this is an LP heater, try replacing the regulator.

Blinking lights. Shuts off.


Hello, Mne was also shutting down. Turns out that is was clogged with dust, therefore overheating and turning it self off. If you're handy, you may want to open the heater and dust it off with a can of compressed air. 
Worked for me.

My heater will not burn unless you hold the knob in once release it shut off


Are you getting the pilot light to work? some gas valves are finicky about where the knob is positioned when trying to light the pilot.
