I have a PowerStar tankless electric water heater, model #44-557710 and it was replaced about 3 months ago. This morning I had hot water and this afternoon I do not. When I call for hot water a red light...


Call Bosch. And exercise your 10 year parts warranty rights.
Copy following link for Bosch power star manuals:

Check circuit breakers, fully off and then fully back on. Test if voltage is at least 80% rating plate on unit. Check that temperature dial is set correctly. Call for service again.
Don't install tankless computer that heats water. You cannot fix this computer yourself, and they are problematic for owners.
Go to Lowes right now, spend $285 and buy tank-type electric water heater, roll it into your house, and save money, since the electric tankless computer heater costs average $100 more per year to operate than tank-type heater for average family of 4.
Tank type heater can be repaired by homeowner same day for $25 using off-the-shelf parts from hardware store. And that empowers the regular guy, and gets you off the junk tankless treadmill.

How does rhe hot and cold water hook up on a 71-40d which is which top and bottom


Tanks are marked with Hot and Cold.
1) If water connections are on top of tank, look for red marking or word HOT that shows where hot water pipe connects. Look for blue marking or word COLD that shows cold water connection.
2) If water connections are on side of tank, cold water connects to bottom one, and hot connects to top.

3) If hot and cold are reversed, the tank will not work.
Pipes on top of tank: cold water enters tank and is sent to bottom of tank in a long tube called the dip tube. This means the cold is on the bottom since hot water rises to the top. The hot water exits top of tank.
Pipes on side of tank: You want cold water to enter bottom, so hot water naturally rises to the top outlet.

I own a 31' trailer which has an ATWOOD G6A-8E RV Water Heater, 6 Gal electronic ignition, 2 yrs ago the pressure relief valve would open up and empty the hot water tank completely, it did this several...


Most electronic ignition models only show the red light if there is a problem, (did not ignite) for one reason or another. To start with, make sure your propane is on, and you have a good flame at stove top burner, just to be sure the water heater is getting propane, and all air is bled from the line, which may cause water heater to go into check. (red light) If it does, shut switch off, and retry. Let me know what happens. As far as pressure relief opening and emptying the water heater, and your sure it's not a faulty pressure relief valve, then there's 2 things to start with checking. 1st, does the water seem extremely hot, thus a possible faulty thermostat &/or ECO . Secondly, if the incoming water pressure is too high, that will also cause it to leak bad. Try installing a pressure regulator (usually 40 psi.) at your hose connection. Let me know what you find.

Rheem Power Vent 2 water heater is flashing 4 times and there is no hot water. Model # 41VRP50NT What can I do to fix this? Do I need to call a plumber?


The flashing light is a trouble sequence light. Find your manual to see what 4 flashes means. It's usually attached to the side of the water heater tank. Try a quick fix by unplugging the power vent and see what happens.

New Westbrass water dispenser does not have the lines marked "red" or "blue" as described in the directions.


This faucet is the hot only version so it has two copper lines and one Santoprene rubber line. The copper line directly under the handle is the inlet from the wall - the second copper line attaches to the hot water tank by the corner. The Santoprene line attaches to the middle of the hot water tank. This faucet cannot be installed without the hot water tank.
