Check things in this order: check the breaker and make sure it has not tripped. Check the high temperature limit switch. It is located under the top cover on the heater. If there is only one cover, look for a button (usually red) that is available to reset. If you have some kind of control that is digital, I am not the one to answer. If you have the type I described and you cannot get it to heat after you have checked those things, get a voltmeter and see if, in fact, you have power at the unit. If you do, the heating elements are probably out. Good luck...Lee

Probably frozen. Let it thaw out and see if it works. You may want to think about wrapping the pipes with heat tape because of those low tempertures they could break especially if the unit is outside.

Good luck,

Cold water connection is hot


Did you put hot to hot side? And cold to cold side?
Cold water pipe usually has shut-off valve.

No water comes out of the hot side of my shower or bathtub


Hello,

Based on gas prices, often gas hot water heaters can be a more cost-effective option than electric models and preferred by many homeowners. However, gas hot water heater models can have their own set of problems that differ from electric versions. You will not find it difficult to perform some basic troubleshooting to resolve an issue with a gas hot water heater.

Instructions

  1. 1 Determine if the gas supply has been shut off. No gas will cause the hot water heater to stop producing hot water. Turning the gas supply back on should be your first troubleshooting technique.
  2. 2 Check the pilot light. If you are experiencing no hot water, the pilot light of your gas hot water heater may have distinguished. Turn off the gas source and place a match over the pilot light tube to relight it.
  3. 3 Adjust the thermostat of your hot water heater. If you find that the hot water runs out quickly or does not get hot enough, you may need to set the temperature of the gas hot water heater higher. Typically, set the dial between the medium and hot setting for adequate hot water.
  4. 4 Inspect the gas hot water heater. The burner orifice and flue can both become clogged on a hot water heater. Turn off the gas and use a wire brush to clean out any debris that may have become lodged in these sections.
  5. 5 Ensure that all the burner access covers are in place. If the pilot light will not stay lit, it could be due to exposure to drafts.
  6. 6 Flush the tank. Certain deposits can build up over time when using a gas hot water heater which can cause the tank to produce a banging noise. To flush it, turn the heater off and open the pressure relief valve and drain valve on the water heater. Use a hose to flush water through the system until the hose runs clear.

Thanks.

Light flashing - lockout condition - ECO failure


The ECO is designed to shut off the water heater in case of the water heater overheating. This is to prevent the water heater from exploding. I assume that you have a newer style residental water heater or a commerical boiler. The ECO is a fuseable link that is built into the control and located at the thermostat probe. If the water heater overheats then this link will melt cutting the circuit on the millivolt system(residential) or 24volt system(commercial boiler). If you look under the water heater control(where the temp adjustment is) there are usuall two wires that go from the control to the water heater. These are the ECO wires. Verify the wires have not been cut or damaged. If these wires are cut or damaged then the ECO circuit will be incomplete and you will get the ECO lockout failure. Also make sure that the flame lock-out switch is not tripped. It will be located at the burner compartment cover and have two wires going to it. Most have a little button in the center. These are to sense high heat and one might have tripped closing the circuit. You can push this little button to re-set the switch. If you feel a little "click" then the switch was probably tripped. If it does not have any button then it might be "self resetting". To test that switch use a continuity tester and the circuit should be closed. If these switches are working then the fusable link for the ECO is probably bad from the water heater temp getting too high or was defective and failed. This will require you to remove the water heater control valve and replace the fusable link. If you do not have experience with this I suggest you call a licensed plumber to make the repairs. If this repair is improperly done it could void the warranty on the water heater and/or cause property/personal damage or injury. There is a possiblilty that your water heater thermostat had failed causing the ECO to trip. If that is the case then the ECO safety did it's job.

I have replaced my electric water heater and I have checked everything I can think of and I still run out of hot water in 3 minutes. What on earth is the problem.


3 minutes?? does the water run cold then? or just warm?
Is this what the tank you replaced was doing? If so, then you may have: 1 a recirculating pump instant hot water system thats faulty and allowing cold water backflow into hot water piping. 2 A tempering valve that has stuck, allowing cold water into your hot water system.
Or maybe a broken or missing dip tube in your new heater.
If after 3 minutes the water is coming cold out leave that faucet running and go to heater and feel the hot water outlet pipe from the heater. if that pipe is hot then the heater is not the problem. If the hot pipe from the heater is cold the heater is the problem. (Make sure the cold pipe coming into the heater is connected to the Right side marked "cold" !) If there is a tempering valve by the heater: feel the output from the tempering valve, if it is cold and the pipe from the heater to the tempering valve is hot, then the tempering valve is the problem. If all these are OK somewhere in your plumbing system hot and cold may be connected possibly a faucet or showerhead that is shut off at the spout/head, but hot/cold handles are left turned on then cold water can backflow thru hot pipe.

Size and installation for instant water heater


Ariston gl4.0 should be fine if used inline with your hot water heater. Used alone it will likely run out when dishwasher is filling and you are using sink.To use your existing hot water for backup: 1 connect existing HOT water line to cold (inlet) on ariston, 2 Then HOT (outlet) from ariston to sink and dw. If you want instant hot water at a sink 10 feet away: use 3/8 pex pipe from ariston to sink, so you only have to run off a cupful or 2 before hot water arrives at sink.

I painted the floor & my hot water heater (Reehm


The water heater is locked out. The following process should reset it.
1. Reapply power to the water heater and wait for 3 seconds for the system self-diagnostic check.
2. Within the first 30 seconds, the temperature dial must be rotated back and forth crossing the 120
degree mark at least six (6) times. This will reset the control and display a normal flash code
(slow blinking).
