ECO 18, ECO 21, ECO 24, ECO 27 and ECO 36 Thermistors Troubleshooting Steps
Turn off breaker.
Locate temperature sensors on inlet and outlet pipes. It is the nut with wires coming out of it.
Follow cable to electronic board.
Remove electronic board cover.
Disconnect from board.
Turn on breakers.
Turn on hot water tap.
Wait 3 to 5 minutes.
If water still does not heat up, further technical troubleshooting is needed. Volt meter is required.
If the water heats up, then the thermistors are bad. Just leave them disconnected (creating a bypass) until you can replace the thermistors.
