Hi,
The problem is probably with the circulator pump or the zone valve, which ever way your water circulating from the boiler is controled.
The water needs to be moved through the boiler and the coils in the Hot water maker to heat water. If this is not happening then no water will be heated.
Check for power and then is the pump is running or the zone valve opening.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

do you have a pressure tank as part of your water heater and water pipes? if yes, check to make sure tank pressure matches your incoming water pressure from your municipal hook up

The tank rusting itself shut is almost an impossibility due to pressure. I would be inclined to believe that the controller is starting to fail and water that was way too hot entered the system and caused and overpressure issue that made the leak, When the pressure and temp dropped, the problem subsided. According to some of the threads that I have found on this, Amtrol is pretty generous about replacing the defective parts even when they dont have to. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/water-heaters/335226-amtrol-boilermate-problem.html

Er3 flashes hot water will not reach set point


Had this happen to me before, if you have hot water from the boiler going in and out of the boiler mate and the temps are not rising within the hot water means more than likely you may need to remove exchanger and clean sediment off element, basically sediment creates a blanket over the heat source causing poor thermal conductivity. Things to check before removing heat exchanger

- outlet temp of boiler water to aquamate -inlet temp of boiler water to aqua mate= 20-30'F if low then bad thermal transfer or poor water movement
-make sure sensor is reading properly
- get boiler temp higher to speed up thermal gain in water heater

AMTROL Boiler Mate no hot water


You might have bad faucet cartridge or check valve.
Possibly a clogged line.
Contact amtrol [email protected] to hear them suggest calling local technician
Otherwise Amtrol does not post service information or service manuals.
Post question on pro water heater forum to hear them suggest a few things before you call local service technician.
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/
Use search feature on forum above, before calling local service technician
Read suggested answers at fixya before calling local plumber.
Call amtrol and ask why they do not post service manuals or service information when so many promoters are selling the product.

Wh 9L amtrol water heater..the water temp is too hot.. the heater is 10 yrs old is it possible to remove the temp probe and clean?


Amdrol makes indirect-fired water heater that gets heat from a boiler
http://www.amtrol.com/boilermate.htm

1) Pdf manual on amdrol website show a mixing valve that mixes cold water with the hot water so water temperature going to faucet stays the same:
http://www.amtrol.com/pdf/MC10169%20BMconstantempflyer.pdf
You set the temperature of the mixing valve.
You can also set up 2 sets of pipes ... one is connected to mixing valve that goes to sinks and tubs. The other pipe bypasses mixing valve sends hotter water to washing machine.

2) The manual for Amdrol:
http://www.amtrol.com/pdf/9040-586%2001_09%20BoilerMate%20Indirect%20IO.pdf
The new models has a temperature sensor that plugs into digital readout.
This is a thermistor sensor wire that can be ordered as repair part

3) Amdrol has e-mail address:
[email protected]

4) You can post your question on a water heater forum

Beeping noise


E2 means hot water over shot, make sure to check boiler hot water system to make sure zone valve or control is staying closed when the call for boiler hot water to the water heater is isolated. Sometimes a zone valve will fail open or not close properly causing hot boiler water to constantly feed the water heater.
