Troubleshooting

Problem

It takes a long time for hot water to reach the fixtures.

The water is not hot enough

The water is too hot

Temperature and amount of hot water

The hot water is not available when a fixture is opened.

The hot water gets cold and stays cold

Fluctuation in hot water temperature.

Possible solutions

The time it takes to deliver hot water from the water heater to your fixtures depends on the length of piping between the two. The longer the distance or the bigger the pipes, the longer it will take to get hot water.

If a tempering valve is installed, is it set too low or malfunctioning?

Are the cold water and hot water lines cross connected?

Is the gas supply valve fully open?

Is the gas line sized properly?

Is the gas supply pressure enough?

Is the set temperature set too low?

Is the combustible air inlet or exhaust outlet blocked?

Is the set temperature set too high?

Does the water heater have a 240V 50Hz power supply available?

If you are using the remote controller, is the power button turned on?

Is the gas supply valve fully open?

Is the water supply valve fully open?

Is the filter on cold water inlet clean?

Is the hot water fixture sufficiently open to draw at least 3.0l/min through the water heater?

Is the water heater frozen?

Is there gas available to the water heater and (if applicable) does the gas storage tank have enough gas in it?

Is the flow rate enough to keep the water heater running?

Is the gas supply valve fully open?

Is the filter on the cold water inlet clean?

Are the fixtures clean of debris and obstructions?

Is the filter on the cold water inlet clean?

Is the gas line sized properly?

Is the supply gas pressure enough?

Are the cold water and hot water lines cross connected?

Problem

Burner does not ignite when water goes through the water heater.

The fan motor is still spinning after operation has stopped.

White vapour clouds are coming from the hot air outlet of the water heater

Water heater

Possible solutions

Is the flow rate over 3.0l/min?

Is there a 240V 50Hz power supply available to the water heater?

Are the cold water and hot water lines cross connected or reversed?

If you use the remote controller, is the power button turned on?

This is normal. After operation has stopped, the fan motor keeps running for

15 – 75 seconds in order to re-ignite quickly, as well as push all exhaust gas out of the flue.

It is normal to see water vapour clouds or steam coming from the hot air outlet of the water heater especially during cold and wet days.

Problem

Remote controller does not display anything when the power button is turned on.

An ERROR code is displayed

Remote controller can not change the set temperature.

Remote controller (optional)

Possible solutions

Press the ON/OFF button.

If the lamp does not light:

Make sure the water heater has power supply.

Make sure the connection to the water heater is correct.

Call a service technician.

Is priority lamp lit? If it is not, press the priority button after closing all hot water taps.
