I make no claim on being an expert on this product but from what I have read it will help but I don't believe it will stop it. If you want humidity that low I think the desesrt is your best set.Thank you

    Thanks frodo959. Yeah, I'm inclined to think the same way. What is desesrt? I'm in New Zealand, so I'm not familiar with products available somewhere else.

    Many thanks!!

Hi, I've a fagor feb20e Eco plus combi boiler in

There is a flow sensor in the circuit and it is not sensing the lower flow from just the hot water. When you put it on heat though it does.

Try spraying some WD-40 in hole where thermocouple attaches to gas valve, then twirl a small piece of steel wool in your fingers and insert it in that same hole and twirl it as you push it in to clean surface where thermocouple makes contact. Then blow out with compressed air if possible and then re-install thermocouple fitting snuggly. If that doesn't do it, you'll have to get a new gas valve/control.

Have an LP gas water heater with White Rogers control that cycles on and off 3 times before remaining on. Water heater is 5 years old with forced exhaust. Heats water fine once it remains on. Do you...

From what you say, I would CLEAN the thermocoupler with either steel wool or a green scouring pad (dry) and then wipe off the residue with a clean cloth. If you still have trouble then it could be a gas valve that is sticking.

Pilot light stays lit BUT burner will not light

Sounds like gas control needs replacing. Before you do, Shut gas off at valve and your tanks and take a 3/8 or 7/16 wrench and remove the end of the thermocouple that screws in to gas control. Now spray a shot of WD-40in the hole it came out of. Now take a piece of fine steel wool and twirl it in your fingers until it's a few inches long and small enough round to put down in that hole and spin it with your fingers to clean surface where thermocouple seats, well. Use compressed air and blow it out now. Take a little piece of fine steel wool again and rub end of thermocouple that goes in the hole, so it's nice and shiny and clean. Now re-assemble, snug it up and re-try lighting. If pilot stays on, but burner won't light, and your 100% sure water is not already hot, ( check temperature coming out pressure relief valve, carefully) and temperature lever is over to hot setting, then replace gas control. One good indication of a faulty control is if you move the temperature lever all the way over to coldest and back all the way over to hottest and you don't hear it click.

I have model gxrv10ablo1 , and i am unable to install . help me

Well GE manual is certainly careful not to show how to install this thing.
GE parts phone number: 800.626.2002



Blue line connects to bottom of Faucet that comes with unit. I assume the faucet fits in pre-drilled hole in your sink, for example where the spray hose used to connect.

Yellow line connects to top of tank that comes with unit.

Green line connects to cold water line. You might have to make some changes to your cold water shut-off valve to connect green line. If product does not come with a fitting that connects to shut off, then I would probably buy a shut-off that has two connections.


Red line is a mystery. It looks like a discharge line, and the manual is blank on the installation. If the faucet does not have a second fitting, then the red line is probably suppose to rise up to the height of the faucet before dropping down into the drain. This amazingly sanitary plan does not show specifically how to tap onto the drain line, so I suppose you drill a hole and wrap it with some sort of sealant, and then duct tape the red line to side of drain pipe to make sure it doesn't fall out. But I'm not sure what installation method is best for this. It will be a challenge getting your electric drill into the cabinet to drill into chrome tubular drain pipe without bending the tubular wall. Hopefully you have a plastic drain line and perfectly sized drill bit. I can't imagine you're supposed to install a plastic cup under the sink to catch the drain flow.

Manual says you need screwdriver, pliers and a drill. The tool list seems a bit short.

Add a comment here and let others know the details of your installation because you know others have same questions, and they will see this post.

Unit periodically shuts off. LED flashes "13."

Sometimes it doesn't light at all other times during use the hot water goes off and the box keeps flashing green as it continues to spark

it sounds like the flame sensor is dirty or faulty. when the pilot lights the flame sensor rod recognises the flame to allow the main gas valve to open and ignite the burners. you can clean the flame sensor with some steel wool or sandcloth

I want to upgade from my old water tank to a tankless water system. I have underfloor heating and it has 4 zones but i run it as one zone and it is controlled from a therm ostat that controlls a pump.I...

what you have is called a hydronic heating system.
this heating system is completely isolated from your water heater I believe this as most hydronic systems I have installed circulate water through the furnace to heat the house. If this is true you need only to connect your old water heater cold water supply side to the tankless and, old hot water side to the house system: the showers/tubs/sinks etc. in your home.
my appologies if I have missunderstood your inquiry.

No Instructions - not a water heater

Is it radiant floor heating? I am assuming you're talking about the control unit... Need more information about the type of heater you're using, model, etc. Does it look like this?

If so, it's probably made by their sister company Energy Products.

You can find the PDF for that heater which includes maintenance, installation, and troubleshooting information for their website.
