    :Smile: hi, can anybody help ?
    i have a hobby with a truma water heater, on our last outing we noticed it was getting very hot and smelling from the cuboard it is housed in. we switched it off. when we turned it off it made a strange noise.
    it still getts the water hot, but dont want to use it, i am trying to get it booked in to motorhome repairer in west yorkshire if anybody can recomend one.
    thanks.:Eek!:

    water heater

    Hi Family Ross

    Truma are very good with advice over the phone, and should be able to advise, however your symptoms are similar to ours, last year.....water very hot and wardrobe very,very warm.

    Our manual showed a reset button for well resetting the boiler. We have a C6002 model, if yours is the same, feel around the back right hand side, (from the front) for a raised square unit, the centre slides up, and under it is a button....press once and let the hatch slide back into position. Oh, I should have said "start this when the boiler is cold"....having reset, turn on the boiler, after filling, and give it time to heat up, and observe the temperatures.

    Ours was also one that was subject to a recall modification, which was carried out, if yours has not, then Truma say they are not to be used until the modification has been executed.

    Hope this helps.
