Without more info, it sounds like a faulty water inlet valve.

Hot water will not stop flowing. Hot water


Sounds like a bad shutoff solenoid. It operates the valve to let water in and then shut it off. There should be a valve behind the machine where the hose connects to the wall so you don't have to isolate hot water to the entire house.

Water pump says we have 50 pounds pressure but very little water flow


Don't trust the gauge all the time. It may be stuck at 50 psi. Are there any in-line filters restricting flow, softeners or iron filters that may be restricting flow. Bypass any system and check flow rate.
Check outside spigots for water flow. There could be a problem with volume from well also.

I installed a dhc tankless heater, but when I open only the hot water everything is ok, but when I open the cold water at the same time the heater turns off.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is happening is that your cold water flow is greater in volume (gals per min) than your hot water. So when you open the cold water it is mixing with the hot water inside the faucett or shower plumbing and actually reverse flowing back into the hot water heater plumbing. The reverse flow slows the water flow sensing turbine inside the heater and it is thinking that there is not any water flow. (There isn't actually due to the equalization of water pressure when you open the cold water faucett) Since this is a safety feature of the tankless heater to keep it from overheating, it shuts off.
Somewhere in the hot water plumbing there is a major restriction. It may very well be the internal plumbing of the tankless hot water heater or the flow detector design.

There are 2 ways to correct this. The easy way would be to restrict the available cold water flow. You can do this by installing another shut off valve inline with the cold water plumbing and just not open the valve all the way. You would have to adjust the setting so that the hot and cold water can be on at the same time and the hot water heater stays on. The hard way is to locate the hot water flow restriction and eliminate it.
It is possible.... if you have a flow restrictor in a shower head or a screen in a faucett areator that they are partially clogged. Clean any flow restrictors and screens then see how the hot water heater performs before you start modifying plumbing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a nortiz 063-s tankless, and it won't stay on...I'm thinking it's the computer, please help


There are several things I would look for:
-Flashing burner light (indicates an error code)
-Trying flowing more hot water. In the summer alot of times you'll flow less hot water because your cold water is warmer. If you flow additional hot water at your shower, it will ensure the unit stays firing
-If the unit doesn't fire at all, you may have debris in your cold water filter or a stuck flow sensor. Call tech support to help you with cleaning a flow sensor.

When i turn on the cold water to adjust the temperature of water - the hot water turns completly off. I cannot turn on the cold water at all. It is either all hot water or all cold.


It might be a question of inadequate flow. All tankless water heaters have a minimum flow rate that must be met, typically .5-.9 gpm, before the heater will operate. In the summer time the incoming ground water temperature is higher, causing you to mix more cold water and less hot water to get a lukewarm temperature. This can reduce your flow rate near or below the minimum flow rate.
Here's a test for you, try running running a sink while taking your next shower. If the hot water remains mostly constant throughout, then your problem is with flow at the showerhead. The flow at a shower head can be reduced by buildup of scale and sediment. Also all showerheads have a flow restrictor that limits flow to 2.5gpm (some even less). Removing the restrictor will increase the showerhead flow rate as well.
Also look for any error code displayed on the digital read out of the heater. Some heaters will flash on their burner indicate light as well.

Water in timer keeps running out the hole

Water not dispensing/flow is not fast


Sound like time for a new filter. When was the last time it was changed? If less than a year or two, it's not the problem. If more, it's likely the filter is clogged reducing the pressure flow of water.

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
