Junkers wr11 has no spark and no power


Is it gas or electric? if it is gas and has a pilot, and the pilot is out. If you don't smell gas go through the start pilot proceedure. when the pilot is running it produces a small electric current sufficient to hold the main gas valve open; then the temperture sensor allows the unit to keep the water heated.

Junkers WR11 Water Heater Keeps Switching Off


Do NOT disconnect anything. Has the unit been maintained, cleaned and serviced? There may be a limit switch malfunctioning. Your safest bet is to have it checked out my someone who knows and is familiar with the unit you have, could be simple, but be safe and have it looked at.

Junkers manual gas hot water


What are you expecting to happen?

I assume the water heater and water inside it is cold (otherwise you would not be lighting it). You light the pilot. The main burner comes on and the pilot lights it. The main burner should stay on until the tank is hot, When the tank gets hot the main burner should shut off but the pilot stay on. If you draw hot water, cold water will run in and cool the tank. If yu do nothing the tank will eventually just cools off. then the main burner should come back on to reheat the tank.

Junkers gas geysers not heating water much


between 60 and 75 degrees c as any hotter will scald you. Have the gas specialist check it out as it may not be getting enough gas flow to the burner either a badly adjusted regulator or a blockage in the gas tap or line.. You control the temp by the amount of water coming out of the tap as you found out when you attempted to restrict the water flow.

Before calling service technician, open following links for troubleshoot resources:

http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

Before installing tankless water heater, read the service manuals and product manual to make sure you have testing skills and equipment needed to repair tankless gas water heater, and that you are prepared to buy expensive parts when needed and do the recommended yearly and monthly maintenance as outlined in manual.
Also check that area has qualified service technician, and that person carries parts on-hand, and is certified for your model number. Keep Tankless manufacturer contact information on-hand, and be skeptical of promises of unlimited hot water, and effortless long-lasting water heating, and saving money. The only folks saying this are the folks selling the product, and not their customers.

Fix most tankless gas water heaters yourself, same day, all brads for about $350.

7-25-11. Purchased Reliance 909 model 950 GKRT 200 natural gas hot water heater. 7-31-11, installed said hot water heater according to instructions and code, filled with cold water and checked for gas and...


The problem requires looking at manual and service handbook, except handbook doesn't show most recent water heater.
My first check point would be gas supply, and then vent draft, and then air supply.
Take off front cover and try lighting again to make sure air supply is not problem.
Review lighting instructions.
If there is no gas, and gas is turned ON, then gas control valve is suspect.

Faulty Junkers water heater


first find out from your manual what the flashing red light means...that should narrow your search---could be a thermocouple shot,a rubber diphragm in the gas valve has weakened and not operated, or gas pressure into the appliance may suddenly be too low, or springs in gas valve may have worn out---very many possibilities
