Hi Folks,
Today my wife and I noticed that the DSI light that is located over the on/off switch for the propane hot water heater was on. Usually it comes on when it is to windy out and the flame blows out. Buttttt...We have been running on electricity and not propane. The book said that it is a lock-out when the propane hot water gets too hot. I'm wondering if it comes on when the water gets too hot regardless if it is running on electric or propane. I turned the electric switch off and the light went out then came back on in a couple of seconds. Then I turned it off for a couple of hours to let the water cool down a bit. So far it has not come back on.

I'm thinking that maybe our temperature swith was stuck in the "on" position and continued to heat the water. The water did feel like it was extremely hot. Then again, it usually feels like it is very hot. Today it seemed even hotter.

I'm kind of worried though that the DSI won't kill the power to the electrical side of the hot water heater. The book didn't make reference to the electrical side of the heater when it talked about the DSI switch.

Any experience with this situation gang?

Arrrgggg! The DSI light came on just as I was hitting the "Post" button on the last post.
I'm going to leave the hot water heater off for the night and when we are gone for safety sake until we get this resolved. My list of piddly problems is starting to grow again. http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/nono.gif

Hello Ladies and Gents',
Just an update on the hot water heater problem I was having.

It seems that the thermostat has unstuck itself a few days ago. I havn't had the DSI light come on in a while. It was doing that when we had the electric heater on for over four hours. I've been watching for it at that lenght of time and have not seen it.

For a safety measure my wife and I have been turning the heater off before we leave the house and going to bed. No sence wasting electricity anyway and also tempting the "Fire Gods".
Cheers,

AKBrick
