Hi, If you have the book for this system, then go to the problem solving to the rear of manual. This will tell you what code ER3 means, and what you need to do to correct it.
If you dont have the manufacturer's book then try to down load it!.
All boilers and water heaters have different fault finding codes, so can-not give any more info, unless you can tell me the exact problem.
Thanks Paul.

Er3 flashes hot water will not reach set point


Had this happen to me before, if you have hot water from the boiler going in and out of the boiler mate and the temps are not rising within the hot water means more than likely you may need to remove exchanger and clean sediment off element, basically sediment creates a blanket over the heat source causing poor thermal conductivity. Things to check before removing heat exchanger

- outlet temp of boiler water to aquamate -inlet temp of boiler water to aqua mate= 20-30'F if low then bad thermal transfer or poor water movement
-make sure sensor is reading properly
- get boiler temp higher to speed up thermal gain in water heater
