Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Vaillant Geyser Premium Turbo water heater, running on propane. It works fine when running flat out, or with no cold water added to the mixer, e.g. at the shower. But if you want to start adding cold water to the mixer - if you add too much (thereby starving the heater of the cold supply ) it cuts out. It seems unreasonably sensitive to the change in water pressure as I have pretty good mains pressure. It has always been like this from new, and nothing obviously wrong with the installation, no leaks, blockages etc.

yes it is your expansion vessel it sounds under charged to me?your expansion vessel needs to be recharged to 1 bar at least,but check manufacturers instructions it could state different.if the heating is fine and your getting hot water in intervals your diverta valve is moving and working?

Hot Water Heater in 1991 Pace Arrow RV is not working


If you look on the outside of the RV, you will find the vent for the water heater behind and access door. There usually is a drain plug and valve located as well. Generally they will be tucked away under the kitchen sink area with internal access as well. You will need to find where the valve that shuts the water off to the unit is and turn it on. Most times the water heater is either electric or propane. But sometimes they are only propane. Once your find the access door, you will know where the water heater is. You can also contact Fleetwood who makes the Pace Arrow to see if they have any information on your unit. Usually your unit info or trim number will be located on a little plaque right by the entrance to the RV. You will need this when you contact them. Hope this helps.

Vaillant turbomax 28 constant hot water problem.


got your fix, its a calcium buildup in the heat exchanger, and more than likely the rest of the unit, you will need to flush the unit with about 4 gallons of vinegar, you will need to recirculate it for about 20 mins through the unit, then flush with clean water, hook it back up, it might take a couple of mins for it to run properly, but it will, I have had the same problem with Rinnai on demand hot water systems, and it worked like a charm, check the filter thats inline as well, make sure it isnt plugged, clean if needed, also if you dont have a soft water system inplace, you might want to think about buying one and having it installed, that will reduce this from happening again for alot longer period of time, hope that helps
