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.

Water heater supplies about a pint of hot water than turns cold?? what is th eproblem


Hello Rsjohnson164,

I understand that you are having a problem with your hot-water tank not producing any amount of hot-water. I would suggest that you turn off the cold water supply to your hot water tank and drain the tank and see how much water comes out of it.

Flush the tank:
1. Turn off the cold water supply
2. Hook a water hose to the boiler valve (spicket on the bottom of the tank) and turn on the valve
3. Turn on the cold water inlet line and let it run for about 15 minutes or until you get good pressure coming out.

Check the Elements:
1. Turn off the power to the hot-water tank
2. Remove the service panels
3. Remove one wire from the element and use a multi-meter to check continuity
4. If no continuity replace one or both elements

If you do all of this and still have a problem repost to this thread and we will check your thermostats to make sure they are working properly.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

My ecosense 180dvn sends out an error code of 13 after 2min 30 seconds. It is always after 2:30 min. I can shut it off after 2 min and back on and it continues to run. But the water has to be shut off...


I have the exact same problem with error code 13 on my Rheem/Ecosense 180dvn . The unit ran good for at least a year, and then I started getting the same error 13 every few minutes. I called the Rheem service department, and they told me to check the vent installation as well as the gas pressure. I reinstalled the vent with new seals. I only have about 6 ft of vent, so there should be very little resistance. I checked the gas pressure, and it shows 9 in H20 pressure, which is well in the range recommended. The service center scoffed at the suggestion that it could be their circuit board. I am totally at a losss and at the verge of ripping this very expensive installation out of my attic.

Richmond LP PowerVent water heater stops heating. LED's A&B, indicating it has cycled three times without ignition. Watching it go through its cycle, the heat plate glows, hear a click, no flame,...


just an educated guess but id say you have one of two possible problems , gas valve bad or flame proof device is bad

the second cause is very common !! so common in fact theres a spare hanging on the side of mine !!!

I have a Hatco booster heater, and it is 3-phase, and the terminals are labled 1-2-3 are they hooked the same as in the panel 1-2-3 ?


I beleive that would be fine.the only reason phase would make a difference is if it had a motor in it.If you hook up a three phase mtr and it runs clockwise to make it run counterclockwise all you have to do is switch two of the three legs.If you hook it up 123 ,132,213 it will be fine. just make sure connections are tight and you have a ground.

I have replaced my electric water heater and I have checked everything I can think of and I still run out of hot water in 3 minutes. What on earth is the problem.


3 minutes?? does the water run cold then? or just warm?
Is this what the tank you replaced was doing? If so, then you may have: 1 a recirculating pump instant hot water system thats faulty and allowing cold water backflow into hot water piping. 2 A tempering valve that has stuck, allowing cold water into your hot water system.
Or maybe a broken or missing dip tube in your new heater.
If after 3 minutes the water is coming cold out leave that faucet running and go to heater and feel the hot water outlet pipe from the heater. if that pipe is hot then the heater is not the problem. If the hot pipe from the heater is cold the heater is the problem. (Make sure the cold pipe coming into the heater is connected to the Right side marked "cold" !) If there is a tempering valve by the heater: feel the output from the tempering valve, if it is cold and the pipe from the heater to the tempering valve is hot, then the tempering valve is the problem. If all these are OK somewhere in your plumbing system hot and cold may be connected possibly a faucet or showerhead that is shut off at the spout/head, but hot/cold handles are left turned on then cold water can backflow thru hot pipe.
