Q:MY UNIT HAS BURNED OUT A 15 AMP AND 20 AMP GFI. THE POWER CORD HAS A RESISTANCE OF 10.3 OMS.
by|Jun 5, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out. There might be a few scenarios why this issue occurred: Draw of the current is a bit high - If the GFI is already compromised or weak, the high current draw from the water heater can make the condition worse, potentially causing the GFI to burn out faster or trip more frequently. Water leaks - The minitank has been improperly installed causing the leaks. Water intrusion can create short circuits or ground faults. This can strain the GFI, especially if it is already damaged, leading to it burning out completely. Normal wear and tear - How old is the GFI connected to the heater? The GFI is old and has been in use for a long time alongside the water heater. The constant electrical load and potential minor faults over time can gradually weaken the GFI.

        Q:Will it turn off when the house hot water gets to it?
        by|Dec 27, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello there! The EM 2.5 mini tank water heater stops heating the water inside of it once it reaches 2.5 gallons and then when the 2.5 gallons are used, it will have a 15-20 mins recovery time to refill and heat the 2.5 gallons water inside of it again. Should you require further guidance in selecting the appropriate water heater, our knowledgeable team is readily available to assist. Thank you for considering our products, and please feel free to contact us for any additional assistance on our official website. Thank you! Team Eccotemp

          DYI installation in a cramped space under a corner kitchen sink and running in electric wasn't easy, but it was worth it. No more waiting and wasting a minute's worth of water to wash a pan or a plate. 2.5 gallons are more than enough to last until hot water from the main tank arrives. Glad I double-checked space measurements beforehand.

          Purge Tank Before Installing
          None of the reviews I see mention any contamination issues that I have encountered. The contamination plugged my new faucet and the in-line screen on my new dishwasher multiple times. First time I purged the water heater through the dishwasher line by running it into the sink drain. Picture shows grey contamination that was caught in a bucket. And after my dishwasher screen plugged again, I removed the water heater and purged it outside with my garden hose. So far so good. I ran the dishwasher a few times and the screen shows no sediment. I sent a support ticket to Eccotemp the week of December 7th.

            Work great
            I made a small bathroom in the patio and installed it for the shower and a sink, the flow of water is as strong as that of the bathrooms inside the house and it heats up the water in a few seconds.Very good, I recommend it.

              Product does what it says for the most part. Would get a higher rating in my book if the hot water lasted longer. The hot water lasts 4-5 Minutes on average. My installation is about 15 to 20 feet to the spigot. Installation was not that hard once I was able to get the proper combination/type of feed lines. Note- in my (it was my) experience normal supply lines will not work. The threaded portion is not deep enough to catch the threads of the input and output connectors. I ended up using heavy duty 1/2" water heater supply lines. On the hot water lasting - Some place I read that the recovery time was 20m, in my experience, it is a bit longer. The only other complaint is that although I only have the heater turned up half way, there is a very small discharge from the safety valve, that must be happening when I am not there, because I see a very minor water puddle about the size of a half dollar on top of the unit (and in the valve) from time to time. Over all if it holds up, it was a good value for the money, I think.

              This is the second W/H we have purchased. Great for under the sink, instant hot water. This last one we installed by the washing machine. These new washers have to have hot water before they will work. Only 4 gallon capacity. But it is fast to reheat the water. Washer is in temporary in shed while home is being considered.
