Aqua hot problems


Recommended Posts

My aqua hot will not work. It doesn't light up on My panel in the kitchen when I push the aqua hot diesel switch. I am able to turn on the aqua hot 110v switch an get hot water but every few days it shuts itselve off.iam able to turn it back on. I have been waiting for a mobile rv mechanic for 3 weeks. I am new to this coach and I follow this forum daily and have learned a lot but the aqua hot is all new to me. All pointers would be helpful. Thanks. RS Makes more 2006 signature 41

Do you have a panel in the bay where the Aquahot is located. Mine has a panel there with lights that will show system ok with green lights, red lights for problems. Have you replaced the fuel filter and burner tip for the AquaHot?

We just had our aqua hot service which is a good idea to do. When we turn ours on inside the coach in the kitchen our light won't go on either but we went out side and it is working so we talked to our rv guy who serviced or aqua hot and he said it's the panel so when we have a down time we'll have him replace it but our aqua hot does work. Just make sure you hear it outside turn off even tho the lights not on

Have you considered that your switch light just might be burned out and all you might need is either a new switch or just replacing the tiny lamp? Happened to me on a long trip and I just plugged the lamp leads from back of the switch into a spare water pump indicator light until I replaced the lamp with led at home.

Did you find the panel Rob referenced? Use a straightened paper clip to push the reset button on this board.

Yes I did and I also pushed the reset button. Nothing lit up on the panel outside but when I went inside I noticed the aqua diesel button was lit. Shouldn't there be some lights on in the panel outside? Thanks

Follow the links below to find your manual on the 2006 Signature and service options. You will find that beginning on page 127 of the manual you will find everything you need to know about the AquaHot system is listed there. If you have lights out they may be burnt out and need replacement. A fuel filter and burner replacement is a great place to start.

Go online to Aqua Hot and download their service manuals. All kinds of useful info there. Also the people at the factory are very good at talking you through problems. If you have one of these you will need to learn how it works. The factory also has a list of people across the country who have had their training course.

Finally quit raining long enough to work on aqua hot. I shut off the 110v switch in the kitchen , the diesel switch was off and I I turned off the breaker at the main panel. Opened faucets and eventually the hot water was gone. I turned the breaker on did the reset button and pushed  diesel button inside. It started and ran for like 30 mins and shut off. Checked for hot water all is good. I am going to have it serviced by a certified tech. Thanks for all the help. Now on to the next the front ac problem.

John Carrillo is also another super knowledgeable AquaHot repair guy. He used to work for A-H and then opened his own repair business. A-H now contracts out repair work to him. He is happy to talk to you on the phone and has a good inventory of parts too. He's been a big help to me in the past. (970) 518-3085 www.heatmyrv.com.

I should add that Roger Berke has been very helpful in the past too. Between both of these resources and not being afraid to get your hands dirty (literally... clean the combustion chamber and change the fuel nozzle and filter on a regular basis) you can keep your A-H unit running it top condition.
