This unit has a flow sensor that spins. When that occurs it creates a spark. First check the water inlet filter to make sure it isn’t clogged then I’d flush the unit with vinegar to assure there isn’t scale buildup preventing it from spinning. If that doesn’t work then I’d call a trained tech to diagnose and disassemble the unit for a more complete cleaning.
