Burnham k2 combi - takes long time for hot water
Just converted to gas and have this unit. Every time there is a call for hot water, the combi unit goes through a series of tests before the unit fires off and starts producing hot water. This happens every time and we have to wait 3 to 4 mins for hot water. It seems it goes thru a procedure where it runs a series of tests before giving the OK to turn on the flame. This is very annoying as you can imagine and wife is not happy. The plumber who converted called Burnham and they told him that’s normal. They said according to him that’s it’s setup fine and that there isint a way to turn off 45 second to a minute of tests. I find that hard to believe because it’s just not practical. I have heard of waiting for hot water. 30-45 seconds but not 3 mins. Somehow is there a way to bypass the procedure? I don’t know if anyone knows what I’m talking about but maybe someone with this unit or has experience with this unit knows what I am talking about. Please help. Our next option is to buy a separate hot water tank. Thanks.
