10: I have got a gas powered water heater that works fine for about 5 mins, then the flame goes out making it cold. A quick shut off of the water at the shower and back on again gets the flame going again, but of course I have 2 mins of cold to get thru to get to the hot water again.
yes, this keeps cycling which is annoying. 3 shut downs in 10 mins and half of it cold makes for a grumpy start to the day.
Anyway, on the water heater are 3 things I can fiddle with 2 control knobs and a D cell battery, and they are labled in chinese, along with some other writing in chinese.
I’ve figured out that one knob controls the temperature (or gas flame), and the other one controls water flow, but I’m not sure what sort of flow it controls: overall flow thru the heater, or the flow at which the gas ignites? I have fiddled with the flow thing a bit and I can’t seem to find a place to leave it set that will provide a simple thing: uninterrupted hot water in summer AND winter.
Sometimes I get it to work OK for a month or two, then as the season changes (therefore source water temp hotter or colder -> the temp control in the shower is altered to maintain normal shower temp) then it craps out again.
I have replaced the D battery with a new one too, btw.
Any tips appreciated.
