    u did not say if it only occurs on a specific faucet or all faucets. If it is only a sincle handle shower faucet then the mixing valve needs to be adjusted. It is located behind the front plate.

Junkers gas geysers not heating water much


between 60 and 75 degrees c as any hotter will scald you. Have the gas specialist check it out as it may not be getting enough gas flow to the burner either a badly adjusted regulator or a blockage in the gas tap or line.. You control the temp by the amount of water coming out of the tap as you found out when you attempted to restrict the water flow.

After draining solids from the water heater I now have mostly luke warm water. And had no problem before.


the dip rod in heater may have failed. did you see any white chips in sediment while draining. if so its the dip rod, they do fail sometimes. If the water heater in your home was built between 1993 and 1996 and you are beginning to find small pieces of plastic in your faucet aerators, shower nozzles and washing machine supply tube, or if your water temperature is suddenly not as warm as it used to be, the source of the problem may be your water heater's dip tube. The purpose of a dip tube is to carry cold water to the bottom of the tank, where it is heated for use. The defective dip tubes tend to crumble and disintegrate into the tank. Over time, its plastic ! have a very good day !

I have abosch 1600 ps aquastar 4.3 gpm indoor when i turn hot water on it all fires up but no hot water comes out only luke warm water why


Water heater is heating water but only luke warm water arrives at faucet.
Open TP valve and confirm that hot water is available.
If water at TP valve is hot, then problem might be plumbing-related, for example crossover.

It sounds like your thermostat on the water heater isn't working properly. try turning it up higher and if this doesn't work I would have a service techy look at it.

Rheem NatGas hot water heater model 41V50, basement flooded pilot went our how do I relight?


At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.

Extreme hot water then to consistent luke warm


Possible thermostat problem. Are you experienced enough in that area to do some testing. Have a multimeter? If not experienced, don't try it, too dangerous. Call in a service person.
