SOURCE: suburbun rv waterheater 10 gallon with electric

I had a similar problem, I could hear the valve clicking and spark working, but no flame. I checked for voltage as per the previous post, and checked continuity of both coils. Both showed voltage and continuity, but the ohm reading on one coil was less than the other.

I called a rv repair shop looking to buy a new valve ($120 - ouch). He didn't have one and when I explained what I had checked, he said could be that only one valve is opening. He suggested I remove one wire from each coil, turn the heater switch on and when I hear the spark igniter, touch a wire to one of the coils at a time. If it clicks, then it's fine, if it doesn't, then it could be the coil that needs replacing or the valve is stuck. If you see a spark as you touch the wire but no clicking, then it's a stuck valve. If there's no spark, then it's most likely a defective coil. A stuck valve can sometimes be freed by tapping with a screw driver.

In my case, one valve clicked, the other didn't and no spark was seen so I had a defective coil.

The previous poster is right, replacement coils are not offered as a replacement part - but - the repair shop I talked to saves all the coils out of old heaters and I was able to buy one from him for $10.

Problem solved, heater now works!!

SOURCE: Where do I find the reset button on the Stiebel

On the Tempra 29 there is a "safety thermal cut-out" on the top of each of the heating elements within the box. I have had to open it up before to push the breaker. They are a small red plastic push button on the top. Carefully press the braker button without touching the electrical wiring inside. I hope that works for you.

The paid answerers may have a person who knows your product and the problems associated with your model.
I believe they offer a refund if the 'fix' doesn't work.
The manual might also have troubleshooting.

Each day I see 20-25 unanswered questions about tankless water heaters.
And the day before, there were same number of unanswered questions about tankless products.
The number of questions shows the complexity of the machines, the brand-specific-ness of the problems, and the inability of the manufactures to take care of their customers.
If I understand correctly, the manufacturer will refer you to the installer.
There are not many ways a do-it-yourself-er can fix a tankless.

SOURCE: heating unit in a stiebel eltron electric instant hot water heater went bad and I have to replace the unit. How difficult is that?

You will have to drain the tank, make sure when doing this to OPEN the pop off valve, the little handle on the drain pipe, or the water will not drain.

How do i fix my stiebel eltron tankless electric water heater?It stop working..

Th easy fix would be installing a new heating element that has burned out. You don't say what size this tankless heater but if it stopped working entirely you might have just one heating element inside. You can test it by (1) turning off the circuit serving the heater, disconnecting one of the wires to the heating element, then taking an ohmmeter to see what the resistance of the element is. If it is "infinity" then it is open and burned out. Replace element. If it is around 6 ohms (for a 10kW heater running at 240V) then the heating element is OK. Unfortunately those heating elements don't last forever. Check the repair manual on how to replace the heating element.

Push the reset butom and there's hot water, but about a minute later, hot water stops flowing. If I want hot water, I have to reset it over and over again.

Too many possibilities to solve without being there. If you have to reset it, that means that one of the many safety switches kicked in. Be careful that you don't make it a habit of resetting it without getting it checked, doing so will mostly likely cause a lot more problems.

Stiebel Mini 4 won?t activate using 40l/min pump

You have to make sure that the pump is flowing enough water to activate the Stiebel. The tankless unit has a activation rate of a certain amount of water to turn it on.
