Why does the water suddenly runs COLD after many minutes of running hot?


Unless you are using a tankless hot water heater, there is a limited amount of hot water available in the tank. Electric and gas water tanks need time to recover after use, and if you are using heavily, it can exhaust the available supply. That said, there are a couple reasons why you may have less hot water than seems normal. In both electric and gas water heaters, silt can form in the bottom of the tank. This will build up over time and displace water. It also reduces the heating efficiency of gas units. There is a drain valve on the bottom of water heater tanks to allow for purging of this silt periodically, but few ever do it. You could also have, in the case of an electric hot water heater, a bad element or thermostat. Most electric heaters have an upper and lower element and thermostat. If one fails the other will still work, but the water takes longer to get hot and will deplete faster.

Rinnai RL94i - Produces hot water for 3 minutes, then stops


I just had this exact problem. It kept getting worse until we had no water. Our Rinnai tankless hot water heater started the same way though, with hot water for a few minutes and then would shut off with an error code 10. We just had to shut the hot water off and then back on, wait a minute or so and we had hot water back for a few minutes. Our unit would come on with a loud vibrating noise and remain until it shut off with an error code 10 (air flow fault). The solution was to remove the blower fan and blow out the squirrel cage. Ours had moths in it. We also vacuumed out the fan housing. Be careful to mark any wires you disconnect and take pictures before removal. Our unit is now almost silent when it comes on and supplies endless hot water.

It sounds like your thermostat on the water heater isn't working properly. try turning it up higher and if this doesn't work I would have a service techy look at it.

There seems to be a flow problem. The pressure starts out fine and ends up a trickle but only on the hot side. I have used the T & P valve to try and back flush the unit , to no avail


In order to clean the unit you need to connect a small sump pump to the cold inlet, and run a hose from the hot side into the same bucket. Pour about a gallon a white distilled vinegar in the bucket, and turn the pump on. Let the solution run through the unit for about 15 minutes, then reverse the hose connections and run the pump for another 15 minutes. Reconnect the water supply and outlet. Turn the water on in the bathtub first on the hot side and let ir run for a few minutes before turning the power back on to the heater. While the water is still running turn the power back on and reset the thermostat. If you get a lot of debris in the bucket, you may need to consider installing a water-softener to prevent scaling.

I have a newly installed Bosch hot water heater. After installing, it seemed to be working fine. It is in a small weekly rental unit. If anything, the unit is over-sized for the demand. Now that it is...


these units need lots of flow to start and run. Set the temp on the unit lower and the people in the shower will have to use more hot and less cold which will make the unit more stable.

The hot water shuts down for a few minuts then


your unit is undersized or you do not have enough gas supply to run the unit properly.
If you have to many water features running or you have to many gas items turn on at the same time it can cause problems.

Water heater needs a jump-start every morning


Hi,
Did they change the thermocaouple or the gas valve/thermostat???
My gues is that they changed the thermocouple and NOT the gas valve which also has the thermostat in it.

The gas valve is the problem... make them change that or give you a new hot water heater.

Often, this is the result of a restriction of exhaust gases. This type of hot water heater must be adequately vented, (per installation specs). I found this out after taking a number of cold showers. :^( Two years later, and still counting, no more problems. :^)

There's a little device that is like a pressure switch that starts heating when is senses water flow. This is what happens when it starts to go bad. You will need to call out a professional and have it serviced and the part repaired or more probably, replaced.
