This is a statement not a question.

I solved the problem! The system's manifold (the plastic base you put the filter in) has small black conical shape button. When you tight the filter in, one of the two small triangle-shaped cams (located close to the filter's central hole) pushes the manifold's button, and this opens the water flow. The problem is that the cams are too low and do not push the button all the way in. Take a pliers and squeeze (not too much!) the cams, so they will raise a little: it will be enough to push the button to open the flow completely.

Parts should still be under warranty. Call the manufacture at 800-432-8373.. Have your model & serial number. A tech agent should be able to assist you.

First try turning the knob all the way to "pilot" then turn it all the way to its hottest setting.

It sounds like the thermostat/sensor is stuck. This may jar it into working again.

Also look for any leakage or water around the burner.

You will probably have to replace the gas valve in the near future.

Also try tapping the side of the gas valve.

These replacement filters (GXRLQR) are FLAWED straight out of the factory. The problem is in the 2 little "teeth" nubs that stick up near the center circle of the filter. When the filter is twisted and inserted, these teeth push up on a tiny black spring loaded valve in the body of the filter, alowing water to pass through up and out the spigot. The flaw is that the "nubs" are too short and do not push open the spring valve far enough, reducing flow to a semi-trickle, even with a brand new filter. GE seems to think this is not a problem.

Solution=stick a $0.25 garden hose rubber washer in the top of the filter and screw it in. You may have to try a few times to get it to work and seat properly. When it works, you'll immediately get a nice super flow of water. Better than upgrading to a $200 filter system recommended by GE...

Pull all the filters out and re-install them. Let the faucet run for a while to purge any air from system.

YES! or else you will not get any hot water. 'Pilot is for lighting the pilot flame, once the sensor senses that the pilot is llit, it will allow full gas to flow when you turn it to 'on'.

Down near the bottom is a gas valve. Adjustment should be there if it is a gas type heater.

Did you fill heater with water before appling power? If not elements may be burned open. Check circuit breaker.

I think the part number listed is for the filter only.

I think this unit is A/C powered. Check for tripped circuit breaker. Make sure power cord is plugged in.
