Question about Water Heaters

1 Answer

Last night before I went to bed there was water in my kitchen sink. This AM, there is water working in the rest of the house, however, no water coming out of my kitchen sink. I removed the aerator(sp?) and that didn't make anything magic happen. I looked under the house and saw no sign of water leaking. What could it be?

    Yes. I replaced the faucet after noticing that the sprayer that formerly did not work was now working. Our problem is now solved :)

    Thank you for responding :)

    The termostatic swich broke a spring and completely close the hot part of the faucet! replacement is the only feasible alternative

Is this a single handle faucet? if so your cartridge may be clogged.If not your supply line is clogged,check the valve also.

It just stopped working last night. Gas kitchen stove works fine. Are there pilet lights on these things?

if its gas, it has a pilot light. the most likely thing is the thermal coupling is bad. if it is bad, burner flame will not turn on. it senses the tempurature to send gas to light burner.

No hot water in sink and shower

it sounds like 1(or more) of the motorised valves arent working.find the valve and make sure you are getting power to it via a tester,if so then it probably needs the head on the motorised valve changed

Pilot blows out on n.g. tankless water heater when it's windy

There are many anti-back-draft systems on the market, but there may be only a few that could possibly be Incorporated in to your application. You might contact the manufacturer for their product list of, flue pipe anti-back-draft devices.
Good luck...

Water is either hot or cold - no in between.

I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.

So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?

Bosch ae125-re tankless water heaters

My experience in Germany with tankless water heaters was not good; the delivery promised was only vaguely warmed water; they are no replacement for standard devices.
If you can find closet or under-counter (in the kitchen) space you might look into the 20 gallon units made for RVs or small mobile homes/campers. They are not expensive to run and cost well below the ~ $400 US price I saw when looking at the Bosch. If you are worried about the efficiency of them or concerned with the cost of electricity in your area, you could have an electrician install a high-capacity (15-20 Amp) toggle switch (looks like a normal light switch) and manually turn it off completely when it is unused for a longer period of time.
In any case, before you jump on the Bosch bandwagon, check the degree (or lack) of satisfaction from current owners:
I wouldn't be encouraged to buy that one.
