I have a powerstar tankless water heater that runs my kitchen and bath room. The sinks get plenty hot but when you turn on the shower it stays ice cold and the power light just keeps going on and off


Shower heads have flow limiters installed in them. This means the water heater cannot sense the water flowing and therefore it wont come on. Take the shower head off and look in the end for a piece of plastic that is in the swivel. Remove it. Then put the shower head back on.

You need to have the flow switch looked at. The low flow of the water to the lavs and the kitchen sink, they all have as small demand next to t bath or shower,

I have a Marey LPG tankless heater. The water temperature fluctuates. At my kitchen sink - warm water. In my bathroom shower lukewarm water. At my outdoor shower - nice hot water. How may I fix this...


Ok i intall tankless water heaters and sell them and repair them . The trouble your are hving is more than likely ,the mixing valve on your shower has a ajustment on it to prevent you from burning your self . that is the number one reason in showers when water never get to temp . What it is doing is addng cold water to your shower for you bummer . Take handle off and adjust water temp to your hottest setting . Some times you have to remove the low flow washer in shower head to get the right flow . also every time you start up your hot water it shouldbe set all the way ot other wise withe the battery 2 D models the unit will not sence flow and shut off the unit ,with some units it is a fine balancing act to get them adjusted right. If your buying a tankless water heater always buy a blower type unit that has a computer that runs it . You will be happy . If the Battery operated unit is for a cottage or a smallcabin then your just going to have to fix the pumbing to make it work right many of the safety features of the newer showers are not made to work well with tankless water heaters .

Ok, sounds like a flow sensor issue, is your house water pressure steady or does it fluctuate? The sensors on these seem to be a common issue and this model has many issues with heating. take care

No hot water in sink and shower


it sounds like 1(or more) of the motorised valves arent working.find the valve and make sure you are getting power to it via a tester,if so then it probably needs the head on the motorised valve changed

Our second unit just failed and needs a new controller more money


The only Bosch tankless I have ever touched have been the 3 I have taken out and replaced with Rinnai. I think Bosch/Paloma/etc. have two problems:

1. They do not properly certify technicians before allowing them to install these units.

2. Their product is mediocre at best.

The biggest problem I've seen is that people don't vent them properly. The last one I pulled out had a combined vent length of 55'. 55 FEET! Absurd!
The units was condensing so much inside the vent that it washed out 2 gas control valves in ONE YEAR.

Buy Rinnai, buy Takagi, buy Noritz....maybe even a Navien (new player...time will tell)
+
Factory certified technicians, preferably equipped to do the gas & plumbing without having to sub it out.
=
Years of trouble-free hot water.

Good Luck.
