SOURCE: water temp is reading 180 while driving is that okay? is that normal

Hi.Yes,normal operating tenpeture for these vehicles is anythere between 180 an 205. At about 205 degree,the ECM turns on the coolant fans.The only time the coolant fans are on at all times is when the a/c is on.As far as the funny smell,it could be the heatercore starting to leak.If it smells like coolant,it will be the heater core.I suggest you take it to your local dealership.This repair will be covered under the factory warrenty.

SOURCE: Temp gauge reading high

If the fans are running and there's no blockage in the system, my first guess would be the thermostat too.

Look HERE for a link to a couple of circuit diagrams. Good luck.

SOURCE: Water Temprature read 126 on heater and will not Fire

This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

The part you will need is called a thermistor; it is the part that reads water temp and converts it to a digital signal for the board to display. The part number should be 42001-0053S. If you need additional details or troubleshooting tips, try the owner’s manual, here. You should be sure that there is no potential problems with water flow prior to just replacing the part. In extreme cases you could have poor water flow and the water in the heater is way too hot (105) yet the pool is much cooler. Generally you will have other indications this is the problem, such as a lot of banging and popping, like making microwave e popcorn. If that’s not the case, the thermistor is the way to go

Time to call qualified service technician. And watch what that person does to learn about your water heater.
I assume you have Honeywell Icon gas valve. Honeywell makes different several model numbers.

Here is 'typical' Honeywell Icon gas valve service manual for Bradford White, that may or may not apply to your water heater. It shows testing for Icon and disassembly instructions, and error codes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bradford-white-service-manual-44943-D.pdf

Gas water heaters today require yearly service that includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking vent and air intake, electrical connections, testing gas valve, checking gas pressure, bleeding air out of gas line, etc. These are things you can learn to do by reading service manual, and making sure you have a spare water heater around to connect real quick if experiment goes wrong.
If Icon gas valve is problem, that control is modular and can be replaced without draining tank.

Radiator fans not coming on. replaced thermostat and cooling sensor


Hi Bill, is the engine actually getting hot enough for the fans to come on? if the engine does have overheating problem (but you say the temp gauge reads normal) then i would check the operation of the engine temp switch, there are two, one for the gauge and one for the fans.

Where is the pilot lite to the hot water heater


There is a small (usually ) aluminum slide door. You need to air out the immediately area of any possible gas, then turn the knob on the regulater to pilot, hold the button down for a minute or so then use a long match to light the pilot light inside that little door. Hold lit matches up to the little tube until it lights. Then turn knob to temp.

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

Have pentair easy touch controls just installed new water temp sensor. spa is 88 degrees but master temp heater shuts off because it reads 104. what should i check? the thermistor/


If the Easy Touch is reading the correct temperature, but the heater is not - you need to double check the temperature of the pool water with a standard pool thermometer.
Other things to consider:
1) The water is traveling too slowly through the heater. If the water is heating too quickly, then it will shut it off. If it takes a while for this to occur, then this would not be the issue.
2) Thermostat/thermistor is incorrectly reading the temperature of the water prematurely shutting the system down.
Make sure you really are checking the temperature of the water and matching this temperature up with one of the two readings that you are getting. Don't just take the word of the displays on either unit.

My hot tub had a OH where the temp usually is, then went blank and i wasnt able to reset it. i just replaced the cord and resiliconed around the temp readout


This is probally your temp sensor. Where it is on your system is hard to say. If you have a book on the system it will be in there.

Error code 126


This is a bad thermister or heat sensor. It mounts in your water manifold and if it goes bad no error will show. The bad sensor is telling the heater that the water is to hot and it wont let the heater fire. This is a farley inexpensive part and easy to change out. With a new one it should read the proper temp and call for heat then fire the heater. Good luck.

AquaStar 125B NG continues heating water when no demand


I found the manufactures website and read this specific tech bulletin. I will be replacing or repairing my water value soon.

http://www.boschhotwater.com/Portals/7/TechBulletins/TWH-G1-25_Water_valve_rebuild_B.pdf

The bulletin said the following:
If the burners fail to go off immediately when the
water is turned off, usually due to mineralization in
the water valve on older heaters. To test for this
possiblilty, run hot water at a faucet, then shut off
the cold inlet supply and observe if the burners go
off immediately. If they do not the Aquastar will
overheat and shut down on safety depending on
the delay.
