Well since u didn't mention the exact model u have or include a photo so I can positively ident it, id say u need to look around base of faucet for lever , this is the mixing valve control , it controls how much cold water mixes with hot water to prevent a scalding occurrence in use , this lever may have gotten moved and a new position will need to be explored to find a comfortable temp u like it at again

No hot water from kitchen tap


The hot side of the faucet is most likely plugged with something that came up thru the water system. The average thankless waterheater requires at least 1/2 to 3/4 gpm flow rate for the unit to sense flow and turn on. If there is not enough flow it will not fire and heat the water. Not sure about this particular unit but a few require at least one full gallon per minute flow. So chances are that if you fix the faucet, you fix the hot water issue at the same time

No water flow at all


you off the pilot and open the tape of hot water and waste the almost bucket water.
after it again on the pilot and wait for 1 or 2 hours and then start to use the hot water.

i hope this suggestion will work

Heater takes more than 1 minute to get water to kit faucet , then temp fluctuates


1) Guesses: Sounds like a bad single-handled faucet cartridge, or low water flow at faucet, or clogged water filter.
Replace faucet cartridge, clean the aerator, and/or clean sediment out of pipes below sink, and clean water filter at tankless unit each month.

2) For exact measure of problem:
Typical faucet can have 2 gallon per minute flow rate.
2 gpm flow rate means faucet fills 1 gallon container in 30 seconds. Test faucet using 1 gallon container and a cooking timer to get flow rate.
Clean aerator to improve flow rate. Compare kitchen flow rate with other faucets in home.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

Most homes have 1/2" diameter pipe running to kitchen faucet.
100 feet of 1/2" diameter pipe holds 1.2 gallons of water. This assumes no sediment build-up inside pipes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

Assuming only hot is turned on: If faucet is 100 feet away from water heater, and pipe diameter is unobstructed 1/2" diameter, and faucet has 2 gallon per minute water flow, then hot water should arrive in 36 seconds.
50 feet away, and hot water should arrive in 18 seconds.

If kitchen has single handled faucet, and the handle is raised in the middle, then equal amounts of hot and cold water are drawn at same time. This doubles amount of time for hot water to arrive.

If single handle faucet has a bad cartridge, then faucet can have crossover.
Crossover means that cold water can enter the faucet even if faucet is turned to hot.
Bad single-handled faucet cartridge can delay or stop the arrival of hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

Tankless require maintenance including cleaning combustion parts yearly, de-lime heat exchanger frequently, and clean water filter each month.

Water is not hot enough and the temp is on 120 I have a notiz tankless hot water heater


check your gas pipe size. make sure you have enough gas running to the unit. also turn all your faucets on hot and turn off the cold water to the heater and see if you get any water out of the hots anywhere, that could mean that you have a cross connection.

I have been losing water pressure in my single lever kitchen faucet, and I don't get really hot water.


It sounds like a clog internally. Sometimes o-rings, or just debris (like scale) in the water will cause a blockage. If you decide to "operate" on it, make sure you shut off your water supply. If it's old, you may not be able to buy spare parts and should consider a full replacement.

I have a tankles hot water heater. The problem is


this is a problem they didn;t tell any one about, there is a min of 1 gpm that you have to run for it to sence for the unit to come on, if not the unit will not detect the water is even runnig there for will not come on,, as for the kit faucet, it might have a temp control and it may need to have a cartridge change, the water comming from the tankless is nothing like the old tank heater, the water only losses aprox 1 or 2 degree where a tank heater losses almost 5 or more because of the way the cold water is fed into the unit,, thats whay the sprayer works and the faucet doesn't ,, you have control on the sprayer unlike turning the faucet on,,

No hot water


You may need a circulating pump but I can't explain why it was fine before and not now. What I would do is turn the supply off to the water heater along with the power, remove the outlet supply. Open all hot side faucets in the home, using compressed air blow through the pipes if the air comes back at you, then there is a blockage before the hot manifold. If air moves, shut one faucet off at a time to try and determine where the culprit is. I don't know what else to tell you other than that. If air moves through the faucet every time, then you may want to put a circulating pump on. The only other expination is that when they repaired the pipe, some debris or eccess solder is blocking the hot supply. I have seen rocks in units as well. Because of the fix, you may want to take apart each faucet in the house and using a flashlight, look in the hot supply side to see if you can find any debris in those as well. Its not unusual after a repair, to have debris caught in them. Hopefull this helps.

Running water in 2 sinks just to get hot water from a bosch


you can put in a circulatating pump that is controller with a timer and a thermostat so the when yo need heat water the most its readilly available and when you don't it's off, the only thinsg thing that you would have to do it tye in the supply and the return and then insulate the pipes.

Water is either hot or cold - no in between.


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?
