Question about Noritz 6.9 Gallon Residential Direct Vent Tankless Water Heater - N
I just came home from vacation and my water heater has no power. I power to the unit. Nothing comes on.
There is a GFI on the bottom right hand corner of the heater. It is a black box with 5 wires on the bottom in this order: blue, white, green ground, black, and white. The voltage across the blue/white should be about 100VAC and the voltage across the black/white should also be 100VAC. If the black/white isn't registering any voltage, the gfi is tripped.
The GFI typically trips due to moisture in the unit; however, it can also be fried if there was a voltage surge while you were gone. Use a hair dryer to dry up any moisture inside the unit, specifically around the GFI. If the water is pooling or you see a visible drip coming from the top of the heater, you heat exchanger is probably leaking and needs to be replaced.
If you have voltage on both sides of your gfi, check the voltage at the remote terminals. You should have 15VDC. If there is no voltage, you circuit board is damaged and needs to be replaced. If there is voltage at the remote terminals but no display on your remote, then check your remote wiring.
