These sure were not out for long. The bright red button is a pressure release valve which could be faulty
hence allowing water to bypass out of the system and not having hot water. Try strapping a bag around
the pipe that goes outside and see if it fills with water. To top up
your system look on the pipes just below the boiler. There should be a
cold filling loop or a connection for one. If not get one from a plumber and ask them how to fill system up, its straight
forward enough and your problem should be fixed with this info
I use the bathtub to keep the splatter contained, and turn the hot tap on full first and let it run until you get a good air free flow. Then do cold tap and do same. Then do all taps same. Where is water being drawn from?
The thermocouple is a safety for the gas valve. It tells it the pilot light is lit. If your pilot light is not going out and the burner fires when you turn up the thermostat, it is all working as it should. In other words, if you don't need to re-light the pilot, your thermocouple is OK. Turning up the temperature of the water is a good idea, just be careful not to burn anyone with the hotter water. You mite want to try a water saver shower head. Some don't throw enough water to get the soap off, but I bought one that can be turned to adjust flow and we have been happy with it. If I missed what you need from this, please let me know. Roger
There may be some debris in the tap, left over from the old one. Turn the water OFF again, remove the new tap and look for any debris that may be clogging the outlet. Also. make sure the new tap is seated properly and is identical to the old one you had to remove.
Hope this helped to solve your problem, Eddie. Please be kind enough to rate my response. Thanks!
Looks like your recirculation pump might be bad. If your opening a valve close enough to the heater and it comes on, It sounds like it's giving your pressure switch a false reading and allowing it to come one while the farther away you get, it is not enough line pressure to overcome the safety's of the heater.
We have the same problem! It's happened twice this week after heavy rain. There is no error code "19"listed in the manual. Ours is a Rinnai Infinity 24 hot water service. I called Rinnai and they had no idea and were going to send a serviceman when it suddenly righted itself. Now it's recurred. Wife and daughters furious. Please help!
when the tap is turned on and the water light on the boiler doesn't this means the diverter valve is not operating it could be down to low water pressure in the house this can be checked at the cold tap in the kitchen. if there is plenty of pressure then it could be the diagphram in the diverter valve is worn or split. the diagphram is only a few pounds but it depends on the engineer you get as to how much money he wants to fit it.
the egg timer symbol (or two pyramids together) is an ignition indicator turn off and on again to see if it will fire with the tap running. reset the boiler with the lower right hand control knob.
The movement of the diverter valve is critical on this appliance, and is located on rear right of the boiler, when hot water is turned on, theres are two microswitches, which must break (they both close in Central heating mode), if pump is running, it is recognising the hot water demand, check microswitches are breaking, if not, it tends to be a defective servo valve (located above the water valve), or a blocked/ restricted control line (small copper tubes which connect into the servo valve)
Flashing red light indicates not enough pressure on the input cold water. I had this problem when the small filter was gummed up with ****. Remove the water input nut and inside is a small removable mesh filter.
Also the hydro power unit that you hear whirring has a even finer mesh filter. It can also be cleaned out.
