If you mean the red button you have to press when you light the boiler, then it mean that either the thermocouple needs replacing or the shroud over the flame has moved or burned through. Either way, you need a registered gas installer to fix.

Very unusual to have a heater with a remote control. Did you try changing the batteries as they may be low in power?

Advanced electronics
Every Richmond model is electronically controlled for precise temperature control, and self-diagnostic, great for maintenance and troubleshooting. The temperature of the outgoing hot water is factory set on 120 F, but by using the remote control you can easily set it in the range from 100 F to 140 F. The temperature and error codes are shown on the digital display of the remote controller.

You didn't mention the type of paraffin heater you are using, which might have been helpful.

Clearly water has contaminated the business end of the heater and oil and water do not readily mix. It should be possible to mop most of the water out of the works using absorbent paper, even if it means partially dismantling it and then relight it and persevere - the heat should evaporate the remaining water eventually.

Various companies can provide an emulsifying agent which could help with your problem. Something like Wynns Dri-fuel is designed to deal with water contamination in vehicle fuel tanks. There are other brands, usually from industrial suppliers but the Wynns product is widely available in smaller quantities.

If the heater remains stubborn after being mopped and dismantled you could brush a little Dri-fuel around the business end of the heater and add a little to the fuel - though make certain it is fully mixed...

Do you have one handle, if you do replace the faucet with dual handle faucet. A single handle faucet has built in valves which mix the hot and cold water as you change position of the handle.

Troubleshoot resources for power vented water heaters and intellivent gas control valve on following link:

Your hot surface igniter has to be lined up in front of a gas port ... if no gas is coming out, the intellivent gas control valve should shut down heater and cycle for several attempts before issuing error code ... sounds like gas control is bad..

A typical answer for thisĀ·

1. Cut off power to the water heater at the panelĀ·
2. Check the water heater reset button- The water heater reset button is the red button situated on the water radiator itself (simply over the indoor regulator). Some water heater may have two reset catches one for each indoor regulator. To get to the reset catch, you may need to evacuate the metal plate covering the indoor regulator that is held set up by screws. You may likewise need to evacuate a rectangular bit of froth protection to see the reset catch(button).
3.DO NOT reset if safety features continuously trip.
