Question about Water Water Heaters
Tried to run the sanitize cycle, emptied the tanks, installed sanitize canisters, turned the water back on, let sit for 10 mins., turned faucet on, water runs for 2-5 min. then stops. Both drain lines are clear. Removed tanks, emptied and re-pressurized. Same problem.

I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.
So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?

You are doing everything you can. Your dishwasher probably isn't drawing enough hot water to activate the unit so opening the faucet and flowing more water will activate the unit. Just try to adjust the flow from the faucet to a point it, plus the draw from the dishwasher, will activate the unit. This will come with trial and error as I am sure you have already experienced. Also, open the dishwasher when it does get filled and check the water temperature. You might have the unit set at a low discharge temperature. Do you have a touchpad to control the water temperature adjustment?

tankless water heaters are a great appliance with one small draw back they require a constant flow of water through them to maintain production of hot water if the water presure fluctuates they can cut out momentarily or if your water supply is less than great ie hard ,high iron,
sulpher ect.. then the heat exchanger can become plugged over time like say 5 years. Contamination of the flow sensor/presure switch could also be a culprit depending on how handy you are a through cleaning with a good kettle descaler will probably help.
