        Good thinking. I didn't even think to give that a look as it's been so long since I've put my hands on the one. I'll get on that one also.

        Thanks.

          Don't be fooled by a hot recirc line, I have seen air locked lines that get pretty hot just from the pump. If you have a cross connection, you may be able to locate it by shutting down both heaters, turning on the hot side to a well draining fixture and walking the building. Look for some Moen fixtures.

            Called to check on this today. No problems reported on the main line with the recirc system.

            Have to troubleshoot the 2nd floor about the cold crossing over somewhere.

            Thanks for reading and all ideas for correcting this.

              i would install gauges on inlet outlet of pump that way i always know the pump is actually pumping and when they have a problem ask the maint. man what the pressures were at the time of failure. on second floor water heater, is it actually on, did u take an amp draw? it doesnt make since to me that one pipe isnt hot, maybe a bad dip tube? but even if it was that the tank would still warm up.. just throwing something out there

                That is what was so bizarre. Brand new Rheem heater. Checked it top to bottom. Amps, volts, ohms, forced cycle through the stats. The tank was not warm and it was operating.

                Updated yesterday. I was called and told everything was working to their satisfaction.

                      See post #18. I AM NOT happy about it and plan to investigate more on my time.

                        This problem didn't just solve itself. It will likely return this weekend when the church is full.

                          Maybe we should all come and "help" JC investigate. Put about 20 or so plumbers on it.

                            I think BIG JIM figured it out with the kitchen sprayer.
