This is also known as a flame rectification sensor. It basically is what the computer board uses to detect if the pilot flame is lit. When it makes an attempt to fire is there any evidence of flame ignition? This error does not mean that the sensor is bad for sure. The error could be caused because the water heater is only making three attempts to fire and then shutting down. These water heaters are very complex and have many sensors,valves, ect that are all controlled by a computer board. Some of the basic things to check for are... Make sure that you have plenty of gas pressure. These units have a built-in pressure switch and will have issues if they are starved of gas. Most of these tankless water heaters are up to 400,000 btus and a half inch gas line or undersized connector won't work well. You can also check and make sure there is no pipe dope are debris stuck in the screen inside the gas line where it enters unit. Inspect the pilot assembly for debris or obstructions and try to blow out with compressed air. Also look for any loose electrical connectors on the board or to the sensors...one may have come loose.

FA - Gas leakage error, gas valve circuit not closing properly

This paticular problem your having is specific to the jumper in the heater. The jumper is for condensing heaters. Your heater does not have the specific wiring or computer for condensing. So they added a jumper in the wiring. It is failed or failing. It should ohm out at about 120ohms. sometimes its just a loose connection. Check this out, and called 1-800-642-3111, they have been very busy, but leave them a message and they will call you back.

Thermo coupler may be defective. it controls the main gas valve by closing main if pilot is out. make sure thermo coupler bulb is positioned over and near tip of pilot flame, but not in the flame. Thermo couplers are inexpensive and easy to change out.
