Hot Water On Demand
We have the Coleman Hot Water on Demand and it has worked fine other than it has never delivered hot water. The water has only ever been warm. The only way we could use it for washing up was to put the water through twice which is a pain. I am wondering if it is only able to heat the water by X degrees? If the ambient temperature of the water is cold is it able to bring it up to say 70 deg Celsius?? Can the thermostat be adjusted? Whats the “over heat” temp. Cheers

Sediment build up in the tank
Over time, sediment can build up in the bottom of the tank, where the burner usually is. This can lead to slower heating or poor efficiency in your water heater, meaning lukewarm water rather than hot water. The solution for this is to drain the tank and to use a water softener.
Your problem could be as simple as the temperature setting being programmed to a low level. Or, with electric water heaters, you might find that an element is worn down, causing the water to only heat up for a short amount of time, or not at all in some instances.
Buildup throughout the water supply commonly causes low hot and cold water pressure. Sediment or mineral buildup happens in pipes or water tanks when hard water deposits minerals or sediments over time. Sediment and mineral deposits build up and damage plumbing lines by creating blockages or corroding metal.
When the water`s not hot enough, the problem can be an undersized water heater, crossed hot and cold connections, or a faulty heating element or thermostat. To rule out an undersized heater, check to make sure the heater has 75 percent of its capacity as hot water.
120 degrees Fahrenheit is the safety recommendation against scalding, but 140° is the common default setting.
As water boils at this temperature, it changes from a liquid to a gas. That gas, or water vapor can continue to rise in temperature. Liquid water however becomes unstable at 212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 Celsius and cannot “boil” in as it will have already transformed into water vapor.
If air pressure decreases, the temperature decreases. It also explains why air gets colder at higher altitudes, where pressure is lower.
If you`re only getting ice-cold water from your faucets, showers and sinks, there could be a few causes. Likely, the heating elements inside your water heater are broken or not working properly—or, potentially, your thermostat is incorrectly set.
Clients who are unable to safely regulate water temperature will require assistance from providers to ensure that the water temperature is between 105 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit at all times. Call your local electric company to adjust the thermostat. Some companies offer this service at no charge.
Hot water is generally 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celsius) or above. Warm water is generally between 90 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit (32 to 43 degrees Celsius). Cold water is generally between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 27 degrees Celsius).

Hot tub won’t stay at set temperature
I have a 2002 Infinity 6 man spa that I just got from a friend. I am also an Electrician. I had to replace the Spa pack because it wasn’t working. Once I replaced the Spa Pack and used the tub it got up to temp no problem but once I got in the temperature slowly dropped and it couldn’t keep up. After some research and discussion with a pool tech I found out that there is a jumper on some spa packs. It is a LC (low current) / HC (high current) jumper. It limits the current (amperage) that your tub draws. If you are running it on the LC setting it keeps the tub at low current by not running the heater when the jets are on. (this way it keeps the current low by running one only at a time) If you set it for HC it will allow high current to be drawn and let the heater and the jets be on at the same time. On my spa pack it is P26 Jumper. I have found it is also listed as Jumper 4 on some spa packs. the jumpers are located in the lower right of the circuit board. Make sure you shut off the power to the tub and know what you’re doing before you attempt changes. you can also google “Gecko Spa Pack Service Manual” and you will find the manual for your tubs spa pack. Good luck.
I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.
Checked fuse ,ok works on cold but not hot – Coleman Hot Water On Demand
Colemans hot water on demand.new battery ,plenty of gas .works on cold,but not on hot
If it is out of warranty there is a fuse inside them that is covered with a light rubber coating, it is the common glass style fuse. That may be causing your issue assuming the battery is ok. The batteries die regularly too especially if it hasnt been charged and is sitting around.
