So anyway here it goes we’ll give this a try okay with this big section right here to put right here and they said in the instructions to remove all these and put them on here so I’m going to try the the big thing first that’s this side piece here so let’s see how that goes there you go teensy little rubber o-rings here right there my vision my packet so we’ll replace those with new ones this is a silly wire connected to it so let’s take him off he won’t maybe we won’t okay back after it I got me a 7/16 wrench so I got tired of not having the right wrench all right we go takes care of that go see what’s going on there just kind of wobbly wobbly we’re gonna set this baby right there and get this baby over here I can get after a little bit better okay like that so now this is gonna go like so I don’t think I’m gonna leave those where they are all right you’ve got the heating elements in here now here’s another heater although it’s not in there too tight okay well here’s the third element this is the element from the chamber that was leaking I cleaned up the o-ring as good as I could and so here’s the last one okay seeing this baby out okay now let’s tighten these babies up a little bit now they said there’s some kind of a heater ranch but they didn’t give me that.
So I’ll turn and put these in just good snug not too tight you just mash not a little rubber o-ring okay I think that’s about all that needs put in a new tire okay there is that okay there’s that now the rest of this is just taking care of these little sensors and switches and stuff these guys right here so that would be fun if they’re all held in with o-rings now we’ll see how this okay I got just the more to do we got to take these screws off here these are what hold it to the sheet metal frame keep the DPF metal sheet metal frame okay so that takes care of that you can send this back to Sara with our regards next we won’t put the sheet metal frame on here this is where it was leaking right here you can see the build-up calcium buildup from the water dripping not a good thing so trying to get this baby back together you’re on your own camera oh hello that’s right well here we are back in the back in the closet I remounted it remounted the tank on the wall and refit the the unions here at the top and gently I opened up the the drain to the sink opened up a couple of drain faucets this actually goes to our master bathroom so I opened up the shower and the two sinks we’ve got in there and the hot water side of course and open this up and I gently cracked the inlet here I could hear the water grab a little girl through there and let it run for a while and and then.
I could hear the air bubbles circulate through here and then at the faucet end you could see the air bubbles spitting coming up the faucet stuff but after a while that that slowed down and I got good flow and then opened up the valve a little more to get full pressure and no leaks which is a little amazing but since there’s so many fittings on here and they’re just little tiny rubber o-rings supporting these holding these sealing these sealed surfaces here I’m really kind of surprised they all held closely give me a replacement for the heating coils and they’re the one that was leaking that o-ring was all calcium dup and the plumbers that came in that found the tank was bad they put plumber’s putty on there and gooped it up pretty good so I took a little time and cleaned that up clean it all off and everything and I’ve got a real bright flashlight so I could shine on there and see any particles and stuff so I got everything off and clean it that had a secret to success here it was cleaning these surfaces before I reinstalled these different thermostats and limit switches and heaters so that was the that was the secret I think.
I’m going to let this thing run overnight I mean I’m going to leave it I’m not going to drain the water out for overnight but I’m gonna let it stay pressurized for 24 hours I’ll check from time to time see if there’s any leaks down here in the pan and if there’s not then tomorrow night I’ll install the PC board and rehook up the line and do this thing a smoke test that would be fun so anyway until tomorrow see you then well here we are back in the closet this time we have the control board okay and basically it’s just held in place by four screws with plastic washers on them and this little screw into the the water tank and it’s got these Triax here it’s got four of them that’s what switches the the AC to the heating element and so those mount to the copper pipe heat sink to keep them nice and cool and there’s some white what they call heat sink compound that is really available at Radio Shack or online this is called heat sink compound it doesn’t take much in fact when size goes sent the parts they put in a little baggie with a little dab of heat sink compound in it it’s not going to take much but a little bit goes a long way so it’s going to screw in like.
So I’m not gonna be able to do that on camera so I’m gonna stop the camera right now get it screwed into place and we’ll pick it up after that okay okay so now we’ve got the PC board mounted to the a water tank with four screws for the under the water tank and then four screws that hold down the tracks to the heat sink so here’s the four screws that hold down the PC board right here here in here and then the the tracks are sunk through this metal to metal contact and this is a is a copper obviously when waters running it will be water-cooled can’t get much better than that and they’re just four screws for that you just have to make sure they they line up as close as possible so you don’t have to move these tracks too much because they’re just soldered to the board and if the spacing became offset too much and you tried to push the track so you could get the screw in to mount it it’s possible that could come off the the PC board so we want to be careful with that that.
