SOURCE: my Takagi T-K jr. keeps

In my case, the error code 21 was caused by the failure of the vent fan to run-on after shut off (easily verified by listening to the unit). The problem was not resolved by swapping either the fan or the control unit with another heater. I talked to a local service tech who had a couple of suggestions. One was to move DIP switch #6 to the upper position. After doing thisit will be necessary to re-initialize the controll by cycling power off and on. This fixed the problem. I emailed Takagi tech support to ask if I should consider this as permanent fix, or if there was something else I should do. Since I got no reply, I'll pass on the tech's other suggestion: buy a Rinnai.

Why wont takagi tk jr doesnt heat


Flowmeter.....Gas Pressure.....Ignition?
I'm not psychic.
Tk-Jr is a dependable 140-145,000 BTU 2nd Gen Unit SS Vent , <.82 EF.
Failure is a Tech Service issue and the Tech may need Factory Support from California. This is probably a pre-A.O. Smith/Takagi unit
Does the igniter spark 3 times than shut down and fan purge HE? Can you smell gas tracer (remember NG/LP is odorless w/o mercapthan in it)? Tech will need a digital Manometer for Line and Manifold Pressure Test. And a Multi-Meter Toll Free # on Unit or in Manual

Tankless water heater not meeting the need


Yes the faucet could be a problem. Try changing for one which you know is ok.
The long run of pipework - each bend, elbow or joint all have a reducing effect on the flow, maybe enough to matter with a restricted outlet. none of this can be altered except by renewing with larger bore pipe - expensive!
Also there should be a dirt filter in the mains water input line/pipe. Try removing & cleaning. Try also removing , reconnecting and then the hot tap [faucet]

The boiler will have an actuator valve which fires it up when a certain flow of water is reached. If the flow is reduced AND the valve is worn, maybe a replacement. Not sure about it's USA construction but in the UK [it's called a diverter valve] many have a rubber diaphragm which is cheap to replace
Check also if it uses a flow sensor switch
Had a look at the Takagi web site and there are pdf's of manuals
takagi.com
Overall I am still thinking that the main prob is in the flow.
Hope I've helped - come back anytime

Tankless on demand water heater.


Tankless water heaters normally take a little longer than a regular heater to provide hot water because they have to start and get warmed up. I'm guessing the heater uses a pilot light and that the short amount of hot water when you turn on the tap is hot because when the water is sitting still in the heater the heat from the pilot light is enough to get it hot. The tub faucet will get hot a lot faster than the shower because it lets a lot more water through and empties out the pipes faster than the shower. You could probably speed things up by letting the tub faucet run on completely hot for like 10-15 seconds and then turning on the shower.

Takagi TK-JR vibrating noise


Remove your hydronic pump and replace the flexible impeller coupling that couples the impeller blades to the pump motor. make sure you don't do this on a sat or, sunday (i hate house calls then) and, be sure you have a new pump housing gasket before you start the job. Also check the unit for loose pipe brackets

Takagi TK-JR vibrating noise


I have the same problem with a T-K3. The Takagi support site recommended cleaning the burner. When the plummer arrived to attempt the cleaning, he was not convinced that it would help. He called the Takagi 800 number and let them hear the problem over the phone. They had him set the fan speed dip switch (#4 on the upper left bank of switches) to the up ("on") position and reset the system. Problem resolved! Why they didn't recommend this when I contacted them, I haven't got a clue. Anyway, the system hasn't vibrated in several days of use.
