FLO2 is the error code for a CLOSED OR SHORTED FLOW SWITCH ON SYSTEM STARTUP (system disabled) Flow switch is non-functional. This must be repaired only by a dealer or qualified service organization. You might try bypassing the switch and see if the problem is corrected, if so the flow switch needs to be replaced.
