SOURCE: top thermostat reset button kicks out

The top button is connected to the top heater element  which is likely shorting out. Drain the tank below the element that the thermostat is attached to. Remove and replace the element

SOURCE: Code 11 01 - Hot Water Heater Kicks Off

if you have build up in the heat exchanger it will cause the unit to use more gas to heat your water, if the gas line isn't sized properly then your going to kick the error codes off. it sounds like you have two problems, first you have build up in your heat exchanger and it needs to be flushed and second you need to get a bigger gas line to it

SOURCE: PALOMA PTG-74PVN-1 Code C8 12 my water heater

C8 is the last stop in the point of burner ignition and a total of eight error codes. Error code 12 is a supplemental code that means your LP gas supply is too low...have your LP tank service and try again.

HTH,

No hot water at all. Have tried resetting, but still nothing. Is it the heating element what needs to be replaced?


Get a multimeter and check power first. If you have power going into the water heater, proceded to replaced the heating element. The replacement can only be done by empting the tank and turning the brakers off. Good Luck!

Recently purchassed system from you plumber installed it and we asked specifically not to set it on child settings.....we have not had one HOT shower since. how do we go about resetting the hot water...


These Tankless water heaters attempt to heat water as it quickly travels through a short series of heated copper pipes. A high volume of water at an accelerated speed has little time to heat up as it passes through its heating source. You can turn up the temperature (which you undoubtably tried) and turn the water volume all the way down. These settings will produce the hottest temperature capable of the unit - given the entry temperature of your water source.
Most underground water enters at app 52 degrees - and becomes even colder due to ambient temperatures. Difficult to raise this temperature 60-70 degrees in a few seconds of heating.
I've routed a series of copper pipes adjesent to the home heating system in an attempt to pre-heat incomming water. It's only a few degrees warmer, but results a 20- 30 degree hotter delivery.
I have installed some top end units that simply delivers Hot water without compermise.
