I have a powerstar tankless water heater that runs my kitchen and bath room. The sinks get plenty hot but when you turn on the shower it stays ice cold and the power light just keeps going on and off


Shower heads have flow limiters installed in them. This means the water heater cannot sense the water flowing and therefore it wont come on. Take the shower head off and look in the end for a piece of plastic that is in the swivel. Remove it. Then put the shower head back on.

I want to replace an old single handle builders no-name shower, about 15 years old with a gromhix 34436 unit. My shower is tile. What steps should be expected? Is this practical?


Usually a shower stall will boarder a wall where you can access the fixture by cutting a hole in a boaring wall to get at it. If it boarders a closet or someplace thats not conspicuos, there may already be an access hole. Once you have access to the old fixture, you can remove it and, as long as the new fixture is the same size or larger, it shouldn't be that much of a problem. You may have to make the hole in the tile larger but, you should be able to do that with a 90 deg. grinder. Usually most, if not all, shower valve(single) have pretty much the same configuration. If your pies look to be in good condition, you should be able to work with piecing in the new fixture. If you cannot access the fixture from the back sie, well, thats a different story and, alo of work in redoing tile you probably won't be able to match and, a little bit of drywall work but, if you only cut the hole a sbig a you need it,you use some sort of fired decorative tile to cover the repairs spot. It's up to you.

The safety thermal cut off switch keep cutting off and am not getting any hot water in the shower


There is a short somewhere ... You will have to get the fault fixed so the safety will stay engaged.

Probably not what you wanted to hear.

Water heater turns off in the middle of a shower


I have had a few experiences with the tankless water heaters, the only time they have turned themseves off while in service was due to reduced water pressure (perhaps someone turns on another water source while the shower is running) or, a reduced flow/supply of gas/propane. (Perhaps another appliance is turned on.) In one case for me there was residue on the flame rods/electrodes that was preventing the flame to remain on at the required rate. Good luck :)

Water heater doesn't keep running


Sounds like youo have a problematic gas valve. But I would get a gasfitter to replace it. Not for the amatuer.

When i turn on the cold water to adjust the temperature of water - the hot water turns completly off. I cannot turn on the cold water at all. It is either all hot water or all cold.


It might be a question of inadequate flow. All tankless water heaters have a minimum flow rate that must be met, typically .5-.9 gpm, before the heater will operate. In the summer time the incoming ground water temperature is higher, causing you to mix more cold water and less hot water to get a lukewarm temperature. This can reduce your flow rate near or below the minimum flow rate.
Here's a test for you, try running running a sink while taking your next shower. If the hot water remains mostly constant throughout, then your problem is with flow at the showerhead. The flow at a shower head can be reduced by buildup of scale and sediment. Also all showerheads have a flow restrictor that limits flow to 2.5gpm (some even less). Removing the restrictor will increase the showerhead flow rate as well.
Also look for any error code displayed on the digital read out of the heater. Some heaters will flash on their burner indicate light as well.

Hot water is cutting out after 2 - 3 minutes whilst showering


check the screen on the cold water intake on the cold side,, you might have to flush the system out, and do you have the shower head water restricter in, if not you may be using to much hot water,,, how many other hot water fixtures are running at the same time? try running just the shower,,,if this is a tank water heater the dip tube could be bad that is on the cold side it takes the cold water to the bottom of the tank and forces the hot water out,, if you ar only getting a couple of min of hot water and the dip tube is bad it is not going to the bottom but just at the top and not getting all the hot water you will need a plumber
