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.

Most likely the hot water inlet is blocked on the digital control valve. This is a job for a plumber who is familiar with the valve. It's definitely not a job for a handy man.
