Ignition failure. Make sure you have gas, check the flue pipe on both exhaust and air side. Look into the window when you try to start up to see if the igniter arcs.

The pilot light on the water heater went out and the red light is blinking four times on the thermostat (Honeywell WV8860B1317). How do I get this to stop so that the pilot light can be relit?


The flashing light 4 times indicates high water temperature has activated the over heat sensor, and that the only remedy is to replace the gas control valve/thermostat.

Electrical ignitor on Kenmore Hot Water Heater Not Working


The water heater uses a thermocouple to generate a small voltage from the pilot light. This voltage is used to blink the led and allow the main gas jet to turn on. Either your thermocouple or the wiring from it has failed and needs to be replaced, or realigned if perhaps it moved out of position above the pilot light.

Rheem rte13 standby (green) light not on


You might have crossover problem caused by bad faucet cartridge.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

The green standby light should come on when 240Volt power is applied. Page 6 manual.
Both red lights should come on when tankless is activated. Page 6 manual

RTE 13 requires 60 amp breaker and 6 gauge wire
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-TanklessElectricUC_AP15447.pdf

Factory temperature setting is usually default 120 degrees.
Adjust temps page 11 manual
Thermostat calibration is always approximate.
120 degrees is not hot enough to burn the skin.
Exceptionally cold incoming water temperature can cause tankless not to heat enough hot water: install tempering tank to preheat water to room temperature.
Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in water. Delime tankless yearly, clean water filter monthly, do not install low-flow restrictions or conserve water since the flow rate must remain high for tankless to activate.
Rheem does not post service manuals for their tankless water heaters.

My heater keeps blinking and a code on the top says 11...also ..if i unplug the unit while i wait for it to get fixed does the pilot light go out?


There is no pilot light on this model. An 11 error code tells us that there is no gas supply to the heater. Could be a bad gas valve, dirty igniter, gas got shut off somehow, dirty burner, etc... All you can do is make sure the filter is clean, a technician will need to open it up. Sorry.

Honda Pilot 2004 Car battery died because we left the lights on. Jumped battery. Works great but NOW the fuel gauge and hot/cold gauge is not registering. The fuel gauge needle just stays past Empty and...


Check fuse No. 9 (10A) in the driver's side kick panel fuse box. But if your other gauges are working (speedometer, tachometer, low oil light, etc.) then it is possible that when you jumped the battery you inadvertently reversed the cables and created a reverse voltage. This will impact some of the vehicle electronics. If you feel this might be the case, you should test the cooling system temperature sender to see if it failed. If it did, you should suspect that the fuel gauge drive circuit located in the instrument cluster is also failed.

Sony trinton 27inch red light blinks 11 times


those LED flashhing codeds are useless. You most likely have a problem in the high voltage circuits. You should bring that one to a local shop as it's very nlikely you can fix it yourself, and the high voltage circuits are dangerous.

No hot water


The code # 11 is a code that warns of "no ignition" and the causes of this error code are too many to list. I would suggest that a qualified tech. perform a diagnostic test and repair.

This is not a task for the "do it yourselfer"

No hot water


An error code of 11 equals no ignition. Check gas supply, sparker, flame rod, burner and ground.
