SOURCE: no water coming out of hot water taps, water is

I'm not sure I have the whole picture here but When water simply will not flow from a tank your first guess that it is a faulty valve was a good one. While you had the valve off did you turn on the water briefly to verify that it flows well at least up to where your valve was? You may have to do this test. The clog could be right at the tank itself. Before you open up the pipe again first look for anything steel. I have found steel plugs screwed into an old threaded outlet on a pipe that has, over time, produced a large rusty blob that has blocked the flow of the water. If there is nothing like that going on you will have to open up the pipe. By the way, if hot water flows at any other locations, like the tub, then you know that the problem is not at the tank. you have to figure out where the blockage is by a process of elimination.

Can I use a Truma hot water heater on gas in my shed kitchen for washing up?


I just looked on the website which contains a remark there is only approval for installations for campervans and caravans.

Nowhere in the description or specifications does it mention a flue or ventilation requirement which is very surprising because burning gas needs a good supply of fresh air and produces poisonous gases that must be got rid of/vented to the exterior.

I guess you could use your heater as long as the requirements of an adequate fresh air supply and the venting of combustion gases is taken care of...

Truma water heater water wont come out of the taps when on gas, 12 volt or mains 240 volt


Bleed your propane system by running the stove for a sec. if that doesn't work go out to the heater and listen for the ignitor clicks see if it's trying to lite. My fifth wheel does this first time every season.

Truma hot water system keeps flicking the circit breaker please help


If this has worked in the past check all the electrical connections and be sure they are tight. You might consider changing the breaker as excess trips tends to lower the trip point. Check the heating elements and be sure they are isolated from ground if not replace them.

Carver cascade 2 No water at all comes out of the hot water outlet. The inlet non return valve has been changed & is working correctly.


Check the tank drain valve for water there.If you get a good water flow there you know the tank is getting water pressure.Check the first outlet downline from WH and if there is no water there you have a blockage or other problem.If you have to turn off water to tank, remove the outlet pipe ,and check for water flow from tank with in valve on.If no flow, tank is plugged up.
Hope this gets you going.

WHEN MY WATER TANK IS COLD AND I TURN ON THE HOT WATER TAP THE WATER FLOWS FREELY BUT IF I HAVE THE ECONOMY 7 ON OVER NIGHT THE TANK GETS HOT BUT NO WATER FLOWS OUT OF THE TAPS. I LIVE IN A HARD WATER AREA


You may need to replace the tap.hot water is causing the valve to expand and yours may be using a rubber seal inside which is causing expansion and hence no hot water is allowed through it..Trust me on that..

Hot water tank shuts down after5 minutes pilot still on water


Carefully catch some water in a container from pressure relief valve (pull lever slightly) at top of tank, and see if it's up to temperature. If it's hot there, I suspect your by-pass at back of the tank, is faulty. Depending on what by-pass system your using, it may be in wrong position, blocked, or mixing hot and cold. Cold water flows into bottom of tank, and hot out the top. If any valve in between the 2 lines, close it, and make sure valves in and out of bottom and top are open. Let me know what you find, or if water from pressure relief valve is not hot either.
