No Hot water Pressure with On Demand


There is an inlet screen on demand water heaters. Look for that and clean it. The tubes in the heat exchanger could be clogged. The manual will tell how to clean it. This is very involved and uses acid. It can be dangerous, so I recommend you have it done.

HI sorry its shot, they go every now &then.You can run it like you say temporary BUT the boiler needs low pressure to force heat @10 or 12 p.s.i. This pressure will leak out of the hole and you eventaully loose heat & get noise.If you got a pinhole leak in tank.With the main off.Slow it down with duct tape or a rag if you can and leave water on.

Amtrol water heater WH-7P gets barely warm water


From what you are saying it sounds like an issue with either a circulator pump or a zone valve. It depends on what type of system you have ... if you have a circulator pump that only runs the Amtrol then that is probably bad. If you have a zone valve system then it is probably the zone valve if you still have heat for the rest of the house. If you have no space heating then it is probably the circulator pump.

Not enough hot water. I have an Amtrol Extrol coil water heater


Since you mentioned 'both temperatures' it seems your unit is like most all of them, a lower and upper coil.
If your hot water supply runs out quickly, this normally means that the lower coil has failed. Since heat rises, the upper coil will never supply a tankful of hot water, just hot to start, and then as the flow continues, it doesn't have time to do more than warm the water flowing into the tank.
Every home should now own a simple digital multimeter; they cost less than $20 US everywhere and one can find them in auto parts stores, electronic supply companies and tool companies.
If you have a Harbor Freight tool store in your area, you can get them for under $10 US any time and sometimes even less:
Digital meter   
You need to be absolutely certain that the voltage to the water heater is shut down. Before you measure anything else, set the meter to its highest AC setting and check across the coils and then from either contact to the metal housing. If it is dead everywhere, then set the meter to the lowest Ohms scale (normally 200). The resistance of the coil should be nearly the same reading as when you simply short the meter's probe tips together. If it measures 'OL' then the coil is open and must be replaced.
