I have a Rheam hot water heater and Solene / Solar system.

Customer Question
I have a Rheam...

I have a Rheam hot water heater and Solene / Solar system. After the recent hurricane, the monitor next to the hot water heater no longer reads the temperatures from the solar panel, top and bottom of the hot water heater. Hot water is not being produced via solar as well.

Contractor's Assistant: Have you talked to a solar panel professional about this?

We called the company who installed it and all they said is they can send someone out in 2 weeks

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is a simple adjustment - yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Any ideas what I can do to reset it?

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Try shutting the power off to the system wait a couple minutes the turn it back on. If that doesn't clear the condition you may need a new controller. Chances are a power surge overloaded it.
