Why stoped my Cointra 10 gas heater suddenly to heat the water? After about one year we found less water output from the heater, and then the equipment suddenly stoped.
I am not familiar with the model. Is this a 10 gallon water heater? the volume of water can not change. The temperature can usually be adjusted and even placed in vacation mode. Also the pilot light might be out, this would be the only thing I could think of that would stop all hot water. You mentioned output. If you are referring to flow this would be a restriction in you pipes possibly. If you have old galvanized pipes this would explain the reduction in flow. Also if this is a tankless water heater a reduction in flow would explain in not working at all. If the flow of water is not adequate enough a tankless heater will now turn on. If it is a Tankless water heater then there is a filter located on the cold side. To check this turn off the cold water, relieve the pressure by piping the TPRV Valve "Temperature, Pressure Relief Valve. Then take the cover off the filter. clean all that nasty gunk off the filter, reinstall it and you are back in business. The heater should be as good as new.
