Navien NCB-240 cycling on and off when calling for hot water

I have an NCB-240 combi-boiler. It was installed 1.5 years ago. When I call for hot water from the kitchen sink, it continually cycles on and off. But when I call for hot water from the bathtub, it seems to work just fine. So is the problem wit the flow sensor? Because with a larger volume of water, it seems to work fine.

    I would start with the easy things first, check the filter on the cold inlet of the NCB-240. Check the faucet itself to make sure it has minimum flow for the tankless (.6 GPM, I believe). Faucet aerator? Check the set temperature for the NCB, if too high your mix temperature at the faucet might not let enough flow to activate.

    That new, if there is a problem with the unit- call Navien once you check the easy stuff.
