Yes, but with service call and parts and labor, it is better if your able, to take it out, then replace it with new one. If your not a handy man, might be better to have service call, and even than replace rather than repair, as there already into it is better in long run. Also it would normally have at least year manufacture warranty.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 - water leak not from hoses - could it be the pump?

Hi Gleen you probably need to remove the rear cover to expose the in side of machine.
Note if you could post a model number I could tell you for sure what would be the best way get to the pump.

Salamander pump leaking


I have repaired in the past by disassembling the pump assembly and freeing up the paddles. It will likely require a new gasket - either purchase a new one or make one (tedious but dooable). It is also possible that the leak is from a hose connection instead of the pump - pretty simple to cut back the hose slightly and reconnect.
Good Luck!

Excess Hit Water Bill from Solar/electric Hot Water System


10-30-12
Cost calculations for recirculation system vary widely.
These systems cost more, and they cause higher operation cost of water heater.

1) When pump is OFF, then hot water is no longer leaving the tank.
Most recirculation systems have choice of timer for setting specific times of operation, or thermostatic operation that activates pump when sensor detects temperature less than 90 degrees
BUT...

2) Condition of plumbing is suspect here because you are not receiving fully 90 degree hot water from the recirculation system.?.

Bad single-handle faucet cartridge, or bad recirculation check valve, are causes of crossover. Clean recirculation check valve with white vinegar. Replace worn faucet cartridge.
Test for crossover.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

3) There are other suspects, such as water leak.
Drips, broken pipe, bad TP valve.
Turn off all taps and put ear against pipe to listen for running water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#listen

4) High costs: Lifting single-handle faucet in middle will immediately cause cold water to enter tank. Even if no hot arrives at tap, because the cartridge is drawing both hot and cold in equal amounts when handle is lifted in middle.
Today it is more efficient to install dual-handle faucets so tank is not receiving constant dose of cold water when single-handle faucet is not used correctly or tediously.

Hi no hot water..........water pressure in the shower is little bit low


Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/No-Error-Code.pdf

Problems can range from sediment in tank, to clog in plumbing elbow, to degraded joint where copper and galvanized pipe meet, to crossover in single-handle faucet, to leak in water line, to leak in TP valve, to bad check valve, to defective re-circulation pump system.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

Hot water heater is leaking and making noise


Hit the disconnect and call a plumber. Sounds like your heating element or elements have gone bad and need to be replaced. also shut off the water. This is repairable, but it is HIGHLY recommened to have someone with expeirence in this kinda of problem fix it since you are messing with water and electricity. The repair should be no more then 200 dollars
