« on: December 30, 2013, 02:49:53 PM »
customer calls and states that when she turns on the cold water switch she gets hot water i asked if hoses were not switched and she says no her husband says no the dog says no i am stunned. the valve has a thermister sensor on it and i was wondering if this could be the problem so i would have to have a new valve installed, could it be the atc on the unit? would appreciate any one out there with some input to this badboy asap,taco pronto have a nice day

  Set temp switch to COLD/COLD and make sure that it is in fact the hot water solenoid that is being energized and not some other plumbing problem somewhere in the house. If so, then the ATC temp switch is bad.
