Richardrya's comment is very reasonable and he described in simple words the basic principle of how the tankless water heaters work, and one scenario of what might happen if sediment builds up. However, the most lilkely reason of a tankless water heater not turning off is described is this link.

The heater has a magnetic plunger in the incoming water line. When the water starts to flow the magnetic plunger moves to the left and causes a magnetic sensor switch mounted to the top of the line to close. This sends a signal to the thermostat board and causes the SCRs to trigger and provide power to the heating coils. When the water stops flowing, the magnetic plunger moves back to the right and the thus the sensor opens and the thermostat removes the power to the coils. Over time calcium will build up on pipe (and the magnetic plunger as well) and eventually prevent it from moving back and forth. If you are lucky, the plunger will stick in the OFF position and the worst thing will be that you won't have hot water. If you are unlucky the plunger will stick in the ON position and disaster will strike. The coils will remain on, the water will stop flowing, the water will instantly turn to steam, if you are using any sort of plastic water lines they will melt, very soon thereafterthe heater coils will burn out.
As you can tell this has happened to me. In my opinion, a significant deficiency in the product.

It sounds like maybe there is a build up of sediment. You can clean that out. Contact Titan tech support like at 888-Titan-80 or email then at Titantech@engnieer.com

Thermostat sticking titan n180


The thermostat is there to protect the water heater. I don't think it can overheat and make the breaker trip. If you tried to reset the unit and it's still not working, you should send your Titan N180 back to the manufacturer to be repaired. The 10 year warranty if against leaks. You have 1 warranty in your Titan components.

It sounds like upper or lower thermostat.
Thermostats turn off one leg (or one wire) in the 240Volt circuit, so each elements will test for 120V even when thermostat is off.
When thermostat turns ON, it closes circuit by adding the second leg to 240V circuit, and element turns ON.

I have a brand new Titan N-120 that melted the first 8' of the inlet pipe until it blew apart at a fitting. Is this a flow detector switch problem?


No. It is a limit switch malfunction and a temperature and pressure relief valve problem. The safety valve should have opened before any melting occurred. You do have a TP&R valve, right? Depending on how new the unit is, you should contact the manufacturer for a new heater; dont take a chance.

Titan SCR2 Stopped working.


I have the Titan SCR2 N-120. You may have a different model. On mine if you are looking at it just a inch below & 1 inch to the left of dead center will be a round black sticker(it has some white lines like at&t's logo). there's a pin hole in the middle of the sticker that you can poke to reset. Or turn the breaker off then take the 2 screws out of the top of the unit. It's just a thin metal cover that you can pull back & look inside. You'll see a red circular button thats the reset button. It's right behind where the hole I was talking about & what gets pushed in. you'll also be able to see if anything burned out & can get replacement parts at titanheater.com . One of my heater elements had burn/ melted & I've ordered a replacement. It was $17 + $11 s&h but still cheaper than $200 new unit from e b a y. Best of Luck
