Check your upper thermostat to see if it is tripped and you have power to heater and element's. Next if that all check's out then you probally have element's gone bad. My dealing's with element's most of the time one will go out then the other one will follow. If you had hot water and now all of a sudden you don't then maybe you have something tripped out.
Follow up check breaker,power to water heater,thermostat's and element's.

I have a tf325 bosch hotwater heater , problem is the flame will not stop when hotwater is turned off ?? Why and how to fix


After hot water has been drawn, the refill contents have to be heated to a set temperature in anticipation of the next demand. Otherwise, there would be a rush of cold or lukewarm water instead of hot.

On A.O. Smith water heater model BTH 199 100 where is the heat sensor rod located ?


Parts list:
http://www.hotwater.com/lit/partslists/197728-004.pdf
Flame rod, flame sensor sits next to igniter inside combustion chamber. This can be cleaned with sandpaper. Do not touch with fingers. Purpose of flame rod is to detect whether ignition has caused actual, sustainable fire inside the combustion chamber.
If sensor is bad, or no ignition is detected after 2-3 attempts, then 'no ignition' error is given.
Bad gas control valve, bad-or-dirty flame rod-sensor, low gas pressure, misaligned rod, dirty combustion parts, etc

I have an instant hotwater system with the futher most bathroom about 45' away. I am looking at adding a recirculating pump on a timer at the furthermost bathroom to get hotwater quickly in the...


Maybe I am not understanding your problem exactly, but if you have the instant hotwater system installed it should be measuring the temperature of the water in the hot water line and if it drops below the set level it should open the hot water side until the temperature is reached. If it was installed correctly it puts the hot water back into the cold water line so it isn't wasted.

Recently i got a hotwater heater installed in my home, i was told it was for natural gas and i believed the "experienced salesman". turns out they rigged a propane hotwater heater into my homes...


Those dirty crooks, Only kidding. They did the same thing to me a while back, except it was a natural gas heater with lp tank out in the yard, bought it from the gas co who services the tank, found out they ordered a dozen heaters, all of them natural gas. I said to the guy, do these need to be switched over or jetted or something? He says why, I said because it says natural gas only. It worked fine, just smudged black smoke out. He brought out another heater and swapped it out, seems you can't change the burner? Don't make sense. Anyway, I would take it back to the place you got it and say get up the coins, It cost $400 to get the plumber back to hook this thing up!! And we have no hot water. And my shotgun has a hair trigger. I would say it is dangerous enough to get his attention on the matter without going to court. Hope this helps.

A very old rheem fury water heater i assume it's just worn out but because of a space problem i can't go wider than the 15 inch diameter it has.


16" diameter water heaters could work if you cut away the metal and insulation off of 1 side of the water heater. The actual tank inside the shell is smaller than outside diameter.

You can get a tankless water heater if you have the additional money and a water filtration and softener system and don't mind expensive repairs if you install it yourself.

I have hotwater in the tank but none at the faucets.


By-pass may be faulty. Are you getting good pressure on hot side, even though not hot?
