Master Heater and Reddy Heat are the same.

This is a classic reddy heater problem. They use the bleed air to determine the pump pressure and ultimately the mix of the air/fuel. Once the filter gets dirty the relationship changes and the unit gets too much fuel. The solution is to get a new filter and the pressure gauge necessary to set the pressure after installing the new filter.

I have a tip at which explains the problem, where to get the parts and how to complete the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and the generous rating.

Spark plug fired,( Sears -30,000 BTU) starts and runs for approx. 30 seconds, then cuts off. The reset button does not reset for restart for about another 20 - 30 seconds. Then the unit will restart...

check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

The plumber put in the heater yesterday, the electrician says there is power going into it but no hot water today...It has not heated.

A couple of things....
Was the power turned on even for a couple of seconds before the heater was completely filled with water and the air purged from it? Powering up a hot water heater even for a few seconds with out the elements totally immersed will burn them out.
The other thing to check is the reset button on the top thermostat. It is posible that it needs to be reset.
Pull the cover and peelaway to insulation to find the red button. Push firmly on that and if it clicks it was the problem. If it continues to cut out then you have other issues. Be sure to cut the power before opening the cover to prevent getting shocked.
It is also possible that the top element is bad from the get go... If the top does not heat then it will never switch to the bottom and you will never have any hot water.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Motor is having trouble getting started. Once going it works OK

Does it have a run capacitor? Maybe that's the culprit.

Does it have a centrifugal switch for disconnecting the start winding and engaging the run winding? If so, could the centrifugal switch be stuck.

Time and Location
If you hold in the light, start and the reset button for a few seconds a screen will appear with the 12h or 24 h clock setting and also the date and country.

Once you have that screen if you press the mode button it will move over the date and clock etc then you just press the reset button and start button to choose the date and time.

Once you have changed the date and time to the correct date press the light button, start button and reset button and it will save the settings.

Raise your water supply temerature. Next open door and within 3 seconds hit hi-temp scrub, then energy saver. Do this again. Close door and latch, then push reset button.
