Question about Water Heaters

1 Answer

My Cointra Godesia E10P water heater seems to have too much gas flowing. There are flames coming out of sides and the top of the casing. Water is not getting hot and there is a smell of gas. Sometimes the heater flares up for a second or two when no one has turned on the water.

Why stoped my Cointra 10 gas heater suddenly to heat the water? After about one year we found less water output from the heater, and then the equipment suddenly stoped.


I am not familiar with the model. Is this a 10 gallon water heater? the volume of water can not change. The temperature can usually be adjusted and even placed in vacation mode. Also the pilot light might be out, this would be the only thing I could think of that would stop all hot water. You mentioned output. If you are referring to flow this would be a restriction in you pipes possibly. If you have old galvanized pipes this would explain the reduction in flow. Also if this is a tankless water heater a reduction in flow would explain in not working at all. If the flow of water is not adequate enough a tankless heater will now turn on. If it is a Tankless water heater then there is a filter located on the cold side. To check this turn off the cold water, relieve the pressure by piping the TPRV Valve "Temperature, Pressure Relief Valve. Then take the cover off the filter. clean all that nasty gunk off the filter, reinstall it and you are back in business. The heater should be as good as new.

No hot water no flame gwh1600h bosch


Tell me more! --
Do you have any other gas appliances in the house?-- and they are firing OK? Can you hear the gas flowing when you push in on the ignition start button? -- There should be a spark as you 'snap' the button?
Remember-- YOu get no ignition of the big flame, until you have water flowing--
How old is the heater?-- Could there be come obstruction in the water flow sensing device?

Might want to call service technician instead of messing with gas appliance.
Or sent to service center.
Install 20 gallon under counter electric water heater and connect to 120Volt... 1500 watt element will heat water pretty quickly. To have more hot available, turn up water heater thermostat, then that will give 2 showers because more cold will be added to very hot water, thereby stretching amount of available hot..

Cointra godesia water heater... works perfectly but only for 5 mins then pilot goes out... u can relight straight away and it works for 5 mins again .. this boiler I have just bought new ... j


In my experience thermocouple either work or they do not.when a water heater runs for a length of time before the interupter cuts the pilot or on some modules safety cut out sensor also known as over heat thermostat cuts the gas supply the problem can normally be found in the flue restricting the disposal of waste products of the combustion or the lach of air flow through the appliance

Water heater turns off in the middle of a shower


I have had a few experiences with the tankless water heaters, the only time they have turned themseves off while in service was due to reduced water pressure (perhaps someone turns on another water source while the shower is running) or, a reduced flow/supply of gas/propane. (Perhaps another appliance is turned on.) In one case for me there was residue on the flame rods/electrodes that was preventing the flame to remain on at the required rate. Good luck :)

I have a Bosch natural gas tankless water heater and the problem I have is that the burners do not ignite until there is ,8 of a gallon of water flowing through it. Thus, once you have suficent hot water,...


Hello Larry,

Unfortunately nothing can be done about the minimum flow for activation.

However, your heater should have a flow control dial that you can turn all the way clockwise which will reduce your activation rate to about 0.5 gal. but that's the absolute lowest.

If the reason is to conserve water than that's about all you can do.

However, if its because the water is too hot and your mixing in cold which is increasing the volume of water you are using, then you should have a burner or flame control, if its a dial turn clockwise for less flame on the burner or the heater may have a slide control which sliding more to the left will lower the burner flame.

Don't forget water valve maintenance in your manual, follow instructions for a water valve rebuild to restore performance to the heater.

That's about it.

The electronic ignition on a gas water heater will not heat up and glow red to ignite the gas to heat the water atwood r/v water heater


You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

Hi Our gas water heater is not igniting


you need to replace the thermocouple its an electronic device that keep the gas flowing . the pilot light is always on and the thermo couple controls the flame. if it goes bad the flame goes out and the burner wont come on to heat the water, they are easy to replace and available at all home depot or a lowes kind of store.

Bosch 1600h NG not heating water hot enough


it sounds to me like the dip tube has failed. this is a plastic tube that is inside the water heater on the cold side. It is designed to put the incoming cold water at the bottem of the tank allowing heated water out at the top. when this tube deteriorates the cold water mixes at the top of the tank instead of the bottom. a new dip tube is about 5 bucks but must be inserted on the cold side by someone with plumbing experience.
