have you tried the reset yet?

Shut off water heater for ten seconds 2. Turn on water heater and within 10 seconds press and hold both of the adjustment arrows at the same time until the green light blinks. Take finger off arrows. 3. Enter this sequence with the left/right arrows: L, R, L, L, R, L, R, R.

No because I could not find those instructions in the trouble shooting manual.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

They did not put them in manual...why I will never know.

Now if it becomes an issue with multiple resets then I would replace the assembly.

When can you try this code?

I am not near the heater at this time. Will not be there until tomorrow. The client has asked me to replace the tank. I will be getting one in the morning and take it to the building because it is a hour drive. I am located in fort mcmurray alberta canada. I will try your your suggestions at that time.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

I understand.

I really wish you the best on the project.

If you have any follow questions just reply back here.

so a response is not forced from me by the system...either keep this on your side without responding, or rate the service at top of page.

The system is set up that if you respond without rating it forces me to reply.
