Ignoring error codes and continuing to use the unit with unresolved issues may result in more significant damage and costly repairs. In some instances, it can even jeopardise safety.

When in Doubt, Opt for a Service Call, but Consider These Troubleshooting Steps

In various scenarios, opting for a service call is the most effective solution. However, before reaching that point, several issues can be resolved by performing the following troubleshooting steps:

Check the Gas Supply: Ensure a steady and sufficient gas supply to address potential issues related to gas flow.

Cycle Power Off and On Again: Sometimes, a simple power cycle can reset the system and resolve minor faults. Turn the power off, wait a moment, and then power it back on.

By exploring these initial troubleshooting measures, you might save time and hassle. If issues persist or are more complex, don’t hesitate to schedule a professional service call with a hot water plumber Adelaide for a comprehensive solution.
