SOURCE: Hot water lasts half the time

How old is the heater?

It may be something as simple as just needing to flush the tank to remove any sedemints....and hopefully so because this is the easiest/cheapest thing to do.

If this is not the case go ahead and remove the heating elements and check for wear. Replace them if necessary. I would also replace the thermostats that accompany each of the elements.


Checking and replacing both of this requires you to drain the tank completely and should be close to $25 total....last time I checked.

Will well water cause a problem on the heat pump water heater


I would say yes.
Because element may not be easy to replace, or easy to reset unit after replacement
I would also suggest not buying heat pump... must be in at least 10'x10' room with 7" space around entire heater

I got an error code FC on my Geospring Hybrid Water Heater. Please help


Sounds like you aren't the only one having this problem. The FC indicates a compressor failure. Here are the results one customer got after complaining directly to GE.

My Geospring hybrid water heater recently reported a heat pump failure and generated an error code called "hfc code f-c." Although GE will not tell you what this means, apparently it means failed compressor and mainly involves a failed part called the "evaporator asm." I think what happens is the coils in it leak, releasing the refrigerant inside. The heat pump cannot work without it. When this happens, it switches to "regular" resistant electric heat, which defeats the purpose of paying the extra expense and owning a hybrid water heater like the Geospring. I discovered this problem to be widely reported on the internet. I even found repair companies advertising hfc code f-c repair ... Google even autofilled it after I typed only "ge hybrid w," so clearly many people are having this problem. I've owned mine for about 2.5 years, but I think it lasted this long because our hot water use is relatively low. Others reported this problem in as little as a few months. BTW, evaporator coils last at least 10 years (the life expectancy of a Geospring), so there is no way this part should be failing so frequently and so quickly ... this is clearly GE's fault. I would not recommend buying the Geospring until GE comes clean and can assure the public that it has solved the problem on ALL Geospring models (I own the DNSRSA model) and is no longer using shoddy parts for manufacturing OR repair and extends full warranty coverage for all its customers that have this problem (and the other problems reported, such as power supply and main board).

FOLLOW UP (2/6/13): My Geospring has been repaired. GE agreed to do the repair for no charge for parts and labor. GE is also reimbursing me for extra energy consumed due to the heat pump failure. I asked if the problem had been solved so that the same part would not fail again and I was told that it was because the evaporator has been redesigned. OTOH, when I asked the repairman what the real problem was, he said, "China" (a man of few words). We'll see how it works out, I'll let you know if it doesn't! I did not have problems arranging for the repair, though I'm sorry to hear that others have. Could be because I live in a metropolitan area that might have more readily available resources than others. If you own a Geospring with the dreaded infamous "hfc code f-c," please make sure GE gives you the same consideration I got: free repair with no charge for parts and labor, plus a check for energy reimbursement.

Geospring water heater keeps beeping even though filter is clean


Same thing happened to my GE Hybrid Geospring Water Heater. Luckily, I bought the extended service plan from Lowes. The problem is a leaking evaporator coil in the heat pump (top portion) of the water heater. Believe it or not, the evaporator coil may be freezing up due to low refrigerant levels, which triggers the filter alarm. GE knows all about this problem, and it is covered by the 10 year warranty FOR PARTS. Labor is not covered, even though this is a big defect. Unless you bought the extended warranty... You will need an HVAC service tech to fix this problem, preferably one who works for GE Appliance services. Last, but not least, owners need to report this to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC.GOV), as in my opinion A RECALL IS IN ORDER HERE. After all, the thought that 410A refrigerant is leaking into my home (my water heater is in our multi-purpose room) is ANYTHING BUT SAFE!

Keep getting a f9 and f10 code . how do we fix what do they mean


1) F9 and F10 appear to be element failure/ Call for service
http://waterheatertimer.org/Review-GE-Heat-Pump-water-heater.html#error
http://waterheatertimer.org/Review-GE-Heat-Pump-water-heater.html#element

2) Copy following link for more GE Hybrid Geospring resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-heat-pump-manuals-by-date.html

3) Call GE and they will tell you to call for service:
1-888-443-4394

4) 2009 service manual says you can clear fault codes by pressing Filter, Lock, Vacation button sequentially within 3 seconds. Scroll to clear all fault codes using arrow keys. When that is highlighted, press Filter, Lock, Vacation again.
Others report this does not work, so it may depend on model. Or maybe buttons need to be pressed simultaneously.

5) GE does not want folks working on their own water heater.
Do not buy expensive water heaters you cannot fix yourself.
Average service call for GE heat pump is $400 which helps defeat anticipated savings from buying hybrid.
