Look through the sight glass to see when the spark ignites the pilot flame. You still need to hold down on the Rheem pilot control button for another 60 seconds to make sure it is properly heated.

My line water heater turns off after a few minutes


if u are hitting the red button and it is a heat pump hot water system it means that the unit is going out on high pressure ( the red button is a high pressure manual reset button) this could be caused by a few things could be over charged ( but unlikely if no one has touched it recently) a solenoid isnt opening or there is a blockage in one of the TX valves. if the button u are pushing isnt in the pipe work and it is on the compressor it could be an over temp switch on the compressor ( unit could be short of gas) just need a little more info to pin point the problem.

The tankless water heater was working this morning, but now it seems no power is going to it. We've checked the circuit breaker several times but it doesn't seem to want to reset. Is there a fuse that...


If the circuit breaker will not reset it could be a few different things. First, circuit breakers do wear out. The bi-metal strip that makes the breaker function does break down metallurgy wise. A new one would have to be installed to fix this problem. The other possibility would be that a wire inside the water heater has grounded out thus not allowing the breaker to reset. A wire might have gotten to hot and the insulation around it might have melted or became brittle and fell off allowing the wire to touch bare metal inside the water heater.

WHERE IS THE RESET BUTTON ON THE 6EM30-2 FROM AUG 2004?


Electric water heater has panels located on front of water heater.
Remove top cover, and insulation to reveal thermostat and element.

Stand on dry surface, including boards or plywood.
Do not hold screwdriver in mouth.
Do not touch any metal.
Red reset button is located on thermostat.
Push in reset.
If reset will not re-engage, then thermostat may be bad, or some other problem exists.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
Screw terminals on thermostat are live.
When finished, insulation and cover must be put back over thermostat so thermostat not exposed to cool air that will cause thermostat to misread tank temperature.
Put ear against tank to hear bubbly-fizzing sound that says water heater is working.

If water heater is leaking or wet, do not touch unless circuit breaker is turned off.

Electric water heater is fully repairable by homeowner.
ECO red reset button trips when upper thermostat senses overheating.
You many have underlying problem if reset continues tripping:

Flashing red light on Worcester 24i junior combi boiler


Pressure is ok? at 1 bar or above
I think on this one there should be a reset button [red] on the left hand top of the casing - or lower the control panel [ phillips screw on each side] and the button is on the left of the base plate. Press this and try the heating.or hot tap
P.S. if you're on a prepayment meter check you have gas.

Trying to find out if my new hot water heater is shot


The red button you pushed on the hot water heater was probably what is called a "piezo-electric" ignitor. It's normal for it to make a snapping sound and then pop back out. It sounds like you just lost the pilot light.

That being the case, do this:

Turn the gas valve on the hot water tank to the "off" position - it should be silver in color and down low on the tank. You may have to push it down to do this
Leave it off for about two minutes or so
Rotate the valve back on to the "Pilot" position
Hold down the pilot gas valve - it should be red and immediately to the left of the main gas valve.

While holding the pilot gas valve down, push the other red button to the right of the main gas valve - this is the piezo ignitor - push it several times in a row quickly

The gas pilot light should light
You can stop pushing the ignitor now, but continue to hold down the gas pilot valve (the one just left of the main gas valve). Let this valve up after about another 20 seconds or so.

Now rotate the main gas valve to the "on" position

Listen carefully - you should hear the main gas light and feel heat at the water heater flue outlet on top - don't touch it with your hand - you could get burned

If no luck, repeat the process until the heater re-lights

TIP - the instructions for re-lighting the pilot should be written on the heater

Just a potential diagnosis - the thunder clap, if as close as you describe, may have been intense enough to create what is known as a "draft inversion" that may have snuffed out your pilot light. The air pulse came down the flue pipe.

I have a digistat scr with a flashing red light and no heating there is nothing wrong with the batteries, this only occured after a poweer cut.


Try this first before condeming the unit.

1. Turn off the power supply to the Digistat SCR (receiver unit)
and leave for 5 seconds.
2. Turn on power to SCR unit and check red light is on.
3. Press override button No.2 and check the green light comes
on and boiler fires.
4. Press & hold down button No.1 (Keep depressed), then
press No.2 and keep depressed. {The Red LED light will flash
a couple of times and then it will go out}
5. Now release both the buttons – {the two LED lights should
come back on}
6. Get the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit and stand two metres away
from the SCR unit with the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit in your hand.
7. Remove the battery cover and fit the batteries.
8. The Red LED light on the SCR will now flash for approx. 7
seconds.
9. This confirms that the radio signal is being sent and
received.
10. The Digistat+2RF/+3RF and the SCR are now successfully
linked by a dedicated RF address.

Burner on new Whirlpool gass water heater will not stay lit


One of the proper ways to light a gas water heater, is to turn the black knob to Pilot, put a match to the end of the pilot light, while holding the match there, push the red reset button down and hold the match & the reset button down for one full minute. Then, release the reset button and turn the black knob to On. This should keep the pilot light on.
