Takagi TK1S troubleshooting
Hi, and thanks for reading this.
I have a Takagi TK1S. It does not have a warranty and is discontinued, but it has been a pretty great device for quite a while.
I live in Vermont and the other night it got to about 15 below. You know the story :) - The Outside exhaust eliminator was leaning door open and the heat exchanger froze. (The warranty would have not been useful here anyway)
So I was blow drying the heat exchanger and as the line cleared it blew out one of those 1/2 inch 180 degree elbows on the side of the heat exchanger. I have since fixed this. Not great, but fixed.
Well now I don't see a spark when I initiate by turning the faucet on. The fan comes on, it sounds strong, but no spark in the little eye glass.
My father-in-law mentioned once he saw black smoke come out of the vent. And my wife mentioned on more than one occasion that the water would change in temp and drop a few degrees, then come again strong. I had never experienced this, that I had noticed. So that's a little background.
Thanks for any input.
TK-RE01 remote error code: 11
New one isn't an option for me just yet.
This is really the first issue I've had
I did some trouble shooting with the manual for the TK1S and it mentionted the GFCI switch. It said push the button and the light should turn on red. if it didn't turn on then there is a problem with the electrical connection. It turned on okay.
Then it said hit the "reset button" and the the red light should go off on the GFCI switch and another red light (LED) should go "on" on the circuit plate.It doesn't go on. The connections look like they are well seated.
Thoughts? ...and thanks much.
