I have a aqua star 125 bng-l ser 9650617 the only way i can get water hot is by turning on the shower annd the bathroom tap on?

These type of heaters require a minimum amount of water flow. If your showerhead is the most common flow-restricting type then perhaps it is not permitting the minimum amout of gallons per minute to flow through the unit for it to remain engaged. You might have to try removing the flow restrictor :(

My water pressure is very low from the original install is there a way to adjust the faucet to allow a better pressure flow

Your issue could be caused by the water restrictor in the shower head. To know for sure, remove the shower head and then turn the water on.

Very tough water restrictions have manufacturers using plastic water restrictors in the shower heads.

Although you are not supose to, some shower heads can be taken apart to modify, or remove the restrictor.

I hope this helps you.

Same problem with rinnai V1200.starts ok and as soon as you want to ajust cold water,the hot water line gets cold.**** all design

These units need water flow/pressure to work. If you use a mixer to get the right temperature as soon as you try to increase cold to make the water colder you unfortunately reduce the hot flow. Fairly complicated fault to explain, all continuous flow units have the same flaw. Solution is to try and increase flow and the best way is to take any water filters or restrictors out of your tapware. Most taps have the located in the end of the spout. Unscrew the end and remove any restrictors. Shower roses are a bit more tricky to find. This fixes 99% of these problems.

I have a AWG345/4 washing machine and when it`s filling up with water it starts to flash E 14, what does this indicate is wrong. Keith

it means it is not getting enough water into the unit quick enough. check the tap is fully opened. if the tap is a quarter turn type tap the restrictor may be jamming in the tap. you can just remove this with a pair of long nose pliers. if the tap is ok check for any kinked hoses. if that is all ok the inlet valve will be faulty inside the unit and not opening up enough and would need to be changed

How do you fix hot water shuts off during shower with Model N-069M-OD installed December 2006?

Try flowing more hot water with your shower. During the summer you end up mixing alot of cold water and very little hot water (because your cold ground water isn't so cold in the summer). When you get close the minimum flow rate of the appliance, it will start to short cycle (fire on and off). Here's some recommended things you can do:

1) Clean the shower head - remove scale deposits and or clogging
2) Widden flow restrictor - most shower heads have a flow restrictor on the back of the showerhead; It consists of a rubber washer with a hole in the center. You can widen the hole using a drill bit.
3) remove the flow restrictor - this should be a last resort

Slow water flow

first check that there are no kinks in the hoses if they are alright it is either a blocked restrictor in the tap or a fault with a tempering valve this valve will be located away from the tap and is what mixes hot and cold water together so that the hot water isn't too hot, in the inlets to the valve are strainers that get blocked clean them out and see how you go

My miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light flashes, it seems to me that drain works but no water goes into the dishwasher

hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

Have you checked the Water Valve Filters? Remove the hoses from the back of the machine and look into the back of the Valves. You will see the mesh filters in there. Remove them with a pair of pliers and clean them before replacing them.

Also behind the removed filter on the HOT Valve you will see a black rubber grommet. With a pair of Long Nose Pliers, Remove this and the plastic seating base behind it. This is a Restrictor Valve which reduces the flow of water into the machine as required when you use a combination boiler or you are cold mains filling only. This should be removed in Low Pressure Situations.
