This is not a job for an amature, if u don't know that L=Live & N=Nuetral leave it alone, this is where u pay an electrician a small fee to get it right.

You take the old one out, carefully observing the steps needed, and the location of all of the parts. Then you put the new one in, being careful to connect everything the same way.

Can i use a tankless hw heater to supply my hobart am15 dishmachine


Don't install tankless, because repairs, installation, operation, maintenance, replacement etc are expensive.
And the thing can be unreliable since you are connecting a computer chip and sensors to gas line, water line, electric line, and to a gas burner with vent to outdoors ... and each of these systems has problems on its own without a computer chip that can fail at the first electrical surge.

Otherwise call Rinni for specs.
1-800-621-9419

Ask about the 4 year warranty for residential installation.
Ask about deliming each year.
Ask about exposure to hard water, and water impurities, and water problems. Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness.
Ask about recommended yearly maintenance requirement.
Ask why there are no service manuals, and how technicians know how to fix the thing without detailed service manuals.
Call around locally and see who services the thing, and ask if there are service problems.

We have a reliance sta kleen 805 lp water heater that we installed used and it will not let us go through the start up procedure. i assume its in some kind of lock out mode, it does not respond to hot...


Used, Reliance 805 is power vent gas
10 year old water heater that is newly installed.
Unknown gas control valve.
I'm not a fan of installing old power vent water heaters.
Usually these things are so expensive that old one is only replaced when it fails.

120Volt Outlet must have correct polarity and unit must be grounded between ground prong on cord to manifold tube connected to bottom of gas control valve. Test for continuity with multimeter.

Is this an early FV model with air intake located on bottom?
If air intake is clogged with dust, then combustion chamber overheated and tripped FV system. The older heaters need replacement parts and new gas control valve, or entire heater must be replaced.

Replace gas control valve.

My 606 reliance gas water heater run for 5min and pilot goes out


If the pilot will light and stay lit, then ECO is not tripped, and thermocouple is probably good.
If ECO is tripped, then pilot will have no gas.
Usually if thermocouple is bad or installed incorrectly, the pilot goes out immediately after releasing the pilot knob during lighting.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermocouple.html

First thing is to clean water heater air intake and get more fresh air to the water heater and see if that solves problem. Combustion of hydrocarbon requires oxygen that must be pulled into the water heater from surrounding rooms. If water heater is closed off, or located in hot attic that is not correctly vented, or house is tightly sealed, or air intake is clogged, then there is not enough oxygen to support combustion.

Next thing to check is color and size of pilot flame.
If color of flame is NOT clear blue, or if flame is weak, then that says the pilot orifice and burner tubes and burner should be removed and cleaned, along with cleaning combustion chamber.

Additional suspects include combination of things, including: , bad gas control valve, low gas pressure, air in gas line, water dripping down vent and putting out pilot, reverse air flow or backdraft down the vent that blows out pilot, damaged burner parts because of exposure to trace chemicals such as bleach and wax.

It si 7 years old an leaking inside the unit on top of the burners


Tank is rusted out, and requires replacement.

I) To protect yourself from ruptured tank, you should turn it off and use it only when hot water is needed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Emergency-steps-for-leaking-water-heater.html

II) How to install ordinary tank-type water heater yourself:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

III) There are 5 preventable things that kill a water heater and cause it to rust away.

1) Anode rod depletion.
Loosen anode rod before installing water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html

2) Stray current corrosion
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways to save-with-water-heater.html#Ground-tank

3) Sediment build up because no water softener
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

4) Corrosive effects of water softener, and anode rod not inspected (see #1 above)

5) Chemicals stored in same room as gas appliance.

Water is leaking from a whole in the top of the water heater what is the cause


If water heater is leaking out of a hole, then tank is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html

First thing is protect yourself.
Tank could rupture.
Turn off power
-Electric heater: turn off circuit breaker
-Gas heater: turn knob from ON to pilot, so pilot light stays lit.
Open bathtub spout on hot side and release pressure.

Now you're save.
When you need hot water, turn heater on for 1 hour, use hot water, then turn heater off again.

You can limp along like this for a while until heater is replaced.

I buy water heaters at Lowes, Ace, Home Depot, Sears.
Look for scratch and dent.
Look for same size that you have now.
manufactured homes require heater that is made for that application.
Propane and natural gas heaters have different burner.

Always offer 10% less than asking price on any water heater.
You need teflon tape, 10" pipe wrench, new flexible water connectors, and a drip pan, and maybe insulation blanket.

Read how to install gas water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html
To install electric water heater, open link above because some things are same for both gas and electric.
Difference with electric is there is no gas line, and you connect wires same way that they came off.

Is there alot of problems with bosch aquastar 2400


Bosch has had problems with these heaters for sure. They are the best known thing out there in the market.They are mostly responsible for the bad rap being given to all tankless heaters, but a big part of the problem is installation. They are being sold to homeowners at box stores as DIY kits. These are not units to be homeowner installed, venting and fuel requirements are different from regular heaters and they will not function correctly if improperly installed. I have installed several of the Rannai units over the past few years without any issue whatsoever.
