Something is still closed, I think, as I had that problem at one point.

There will be a diagram in your owners manual which will show you.

Ok, I got it figured out! Full time hot water now (at least 6 gallons at a time). Manual was worthless but Google is priceless!

Take a second look at the Bypass Valve. That should be closed, handle at 90 degrees to pipe, not inline with the pipe.

The other two valves A and C let cold water in and hot water out (in my manual) are open and B is closed for normal operation.


Congrats, you got it before I saw your success.

Guessing that your tempering/mixing valve [if you have one], may be in the process of failing, thus functioning inconsistently. If you can find this, and if there is any knob to adjust it, I would try turning it up and down to clear any crud from it.

Search results for "mixing tempering valve bad" --

https://www.google.com/search?q=mixi....0.mt23Y8A8JfE

Is the valve labeled "2" in the manual's illustration linked in Post #6 also a mixing valve which lets you adjust the blend of hot and cold water, maybe? Would have to look things over in person, to know what's what.

Please let us know what you figured out. Thanks.

Good luck!

Peter

Did you check the illustration on p. 8-17 as referenced in Post #6? The H/C valves on the L/R are opened correctly IMO.

The manual linked in Post #6 is the correct one, I think, and the illustration referred to has different labels FYI. The operation of the bypass valve may not be the same as yours IMO.
