Our rheem pronto tankless rutg-74xp red light will come home indicating hot water and stay on about 2 minutes and then turns off we have turned off and back on and let water run for 5 minutes and will come...


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshooting resources.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

List of causes MIGHT include one of following:
Bad household circuit breaker that powers electronics, or loose wire inside outlet where tankless plugs in.
Tankless fuses and control board.
Water flow rate too low. Minimum .8 gallon required (depending on model)
Tankless inlet filter clogged.
Household aerators clogged at faucets.
Crossover at single-handled faucet
If installed, there can be crossover at mixing valve.
Faulty household check valve, including check valve on re-circulation system if that system is installed.
Restriction in household water line, such as clog at elbow.
Unequal pressure in household hot and cold lines, caused by restriction in hot line. When single-handled faucet turns on, the cold water pressure is higher so hot does not flow and tankless will not turn on.
Loose wire connection inside tankless.
Unit temperature set too high.
Unit temperature set too low.
Water temperature is very hot coming out of tap, so more cold is added, but that reduces amount of hot water flow, so tankless turns off because flow rate is too low.
On some tankless, if water is preheated by solar or other indirect source, the burner will not activate.
High mineral content in water > delime tankless yearly
Misaligned temperature sensor
Low gas pressure. Wrong type of gas. Undersized gas line.
Too many faucets on at same time.
Faulty tankless water valve. Water valve stuck.
Fluctuating household water pressure, for example MUD and PUD district water pressure problems or water well pressure.
Faulty household pressure reducing/regulating valve if installed.
Faulty household pressure tank, if installed -or- pressure tank needs to be installed.

I have a Reliance Sta-Kleen 805 Electric Water Heater that is leaking from the cold valve but the water is coming out hot. How do I repair it?


If I understand correctly you have residential electric water heater, and your shut off valve located above water heater on cold-water line is leaking?

1) Hot water would come out of this valve if it's leaking because water inside tank is hot and under pressure ... also remember, hot water rises so tank is probably heating the water inside the cold line during hours when no hot water is being used.

2) You probably need to replace the valve. But if water is leaking because a pipe is rusted, the valve may be ok, and just the pipe needs to be replaced.
Take a photo of your problem to hardware store or home center.
I used to work in those stores and could help folks get the right parts.

3) Here are some steps for replacing the valve.
Shut off main water source into house. This is usually located underground in same box where meter-reader looks at meter.
Your water heater shut off valve is called a gate valve, and it will be 3/4"
All water heater pipes are 3/4"
You will need two 10-12" pipe wrenches, maybe a new gate valve, maybe a new flex connector, probably short 3/4 pipe pieces, teflon tape for each threaded pipe.
Hardware store or home center can get you the right materials, just take a photo over to hardware store

4) When you get started, turn off water heater circuit breaker for a couple hours so water will cool down. You don't want to get scalded with hot water.
Do NOT drain the tank.
Simply open a bathtub faucet on hot side to release pressure.
When finished, turn on the water, and make sure water is flowing out of tub spout in full stream before turning circuit breaker ON

I just had a noritz tankless hot water heater converted from LP gas to natural gas, and had the hot water heater moved outside my garage. Before the gas change over and the move, I could turn on my garage...


One thing that comes to mind right off is did they use proper size orifices when they converted? L.P. uses a much smaller size then natural gas because it runs at a much higher pressure. Just a thought but I had a water heater from the factory for a mobile home that had the nat. gas sticker on gas valve and I hooked it up in town to nat. gas supply. Unfortunately it had L.P. orifices and I was in a hurry to get to another job ,lit it turned burner on and left. Two hours later my customer called to say they didn't have enough hot water. Didn't take long to discover what the problem was and correct it. Thank god for good customers. Hope this helps you. Thanks

MY Atwood 6 gallon water heater will start heating the water. I turn on the water and it is hot for about 2 minutes and then is cold. The water heater does not turn back on. I waited a couple days and...


Try opening the pressure relief valve (carefully so you don't burn yourself) slightly, and see if water comes out and if it is hot. It sounds like you may have very little if any water in there. Check by-pass valves at back of water heater for proper positioning. Cold should go in the bottom, hot out the top. Make sure there is flow through any valves going into bottom, and any valve at the top.Any valves connected in between the hot and cold should be in the off position. If need be, to test if incoming cold water getting into tank at bottom fitting, shut off water, relieve pressure in system by opening taps until all pressure is gone. then close all taps. Now remove your drain plug, then turn water back on, and water should shoot out the drain plug hole with good pressure within a few seconds and flow steady while water on. If not you have a restriction such as valve in wrong position or faulty, so try moving valve to get better flow out drain plug. If flow out drain is good, then make sure valve at top fitting on back of tank (if any) is also open for good flow . Any other valves should be closed in between those 2 lines. Let me know what you find.

Hot water coming out of overflow pipe on my vulcan everhot water


Assuming you are talking about the temperatur/pressure relief valve, it is stuck open.

1. Turn off gas or electric to water heater
2. Close water supply to water heater
3. open hot water faucet on nearest fixture to depressurize hot water system.
4. close tpr valve (you may have to push in on the center spine. It may be resistant to closing from sediment. If so, opening and closing several times may solve that issue.

Once you get the tpr valve closed, close the faucet and open the supply valve. If the tpr stays closed, go ahead and turn on the gas/electric and re-light pilot and turn on control etc.

If the TPR blows again, you will need to replace it. YOu can buy a new one at any plumbing supply store. Shut down the heater again, drain a bit of water out using the valve on the bottom of the tank. there is probably copper pipe connected to the TPR valve which you may have to cut or maybe can just unscrew. The TPR threads out of the tank, install the new valve (make sure to use pipe dope or teflon tape.
