Check if unit has power to the plug. If so, could be bad heater element or bad thermostat. Also could be reset button on thermostat and yes, the reset button is different from on/off switch. Element about $38, thermostat about $30 from www.plumbingsupply.com

Occasionally, the high temperature limit shut off device may trigger and shut the

system down. This occurs when water temperature exceeds 190° F and shuts off

power to the heating element. The shut off device may also trigger from a power

outage or electrical storm.

To reach the thermostat:

1. Pry off the round cover plate (V Fig. 3/1) from its right hand edge (W Fig. 3/1) with

a small flat-head screwdriver.

2. Remove the Phillips screw revealed beneath the round cover plate.

3. The cover (C Fig. 3/1) can now be removed by pulling out its left-hand edge. When

reassembling, work in the opposite way being careful to insert the tongue of the

cover into the slot.

4. Firmly press reset button (B Fig. 4). Reconnect power.

5. IMPORTANT: Check the operation of the thermostat, turn temperature dial from

high to low, if the red light does not go off on low setting, turn off power supply and

call a service person to replace the thermostat.

6. If the system works, place dial setting to desired setting. Note: a lower setting is

more economical and reduces the risk of scalding. Replace cover plate.
CAUTION: Call a technician if the high limit needs to be reset frequently.

No hot water at all. Have tried resetting, but still nothing. Is it the heating element what needs to be replaced?


Get a multimeter and check power first. If you have power going into the water heater, proceded to replaced the heating element. The replacement can only be done by empting the tank and turning the brakers off. Good Luck!

We have an ariston pro pi water heater and water is dripping all over from the bottom. How do you drain this? It is less thasn 5 years old


The tank is drained by removing tank, and using hot water outlet as a drain.
Under-counter tanks are not made with thick steel hull that adds cost and weight to product.
Water heater can rust out quickly if anode rod is not checked and replaced each year.
Anode rod depletion is faster if home has water softener.
All tank-type water heaters have replaceable anode rod that protects tank from rusting, and most water heater manuals include general description of anode and maintenance.

Rusted water heater must be replaced.

I have a Ariston Pro TI water heater. I am getting a lot of rust/junk/green/black, particals in the hot water plugging my shower heads. How do if fix this problem? Thanks Tom


If problem is hot water side only, then water heater is suspect.
1) If water heater temperature is set above 140F, it causes minerals to dissolve out of water.
2) If water heater is exposed to minerals in water, like hard water, those minerals will gather at bottom of tank.
3) If anode rod is depleted, the metal tank will begin to rust.
4) Combination of problems listed above.
To fix these problems, flush tank and replace anode rod, and possibly install water softener, install water filter, and turn down temperature setting.

We just had a Ariston GL 4Ti water heater installed. The water is just not very hot. Does this unit have a temp adjuster on it? If not can you reset the water heater? The way it was installed I cannot...


After installation check the water temperature. If adjustment is necessary, remove front

cover to adjust thermostat under cover. Clockwise to increase the temperature and

counter clockwise to decrease it.


To reach the thermostat:

1. Pry off the round cover plate from its right hand edge with

a small flat-head screwdriver.
2. Remove the Phillips screw revealed beneath the round cover plate

3. The cover can now be removed by pulling out its left-hand edge.

When reassembling, work in the opposite way being careful to insert the tongue
of the cover into the slot.
