water heater leaking

hi everyone!

l have a marey propane tankless water heater. when it was installed everything was fine. now with the water heater off, and only the water pump on, water pours out of the heater. not from the connections but from the little vents at the bottom. i had the heater installed over the winter and iím scared water may have frozen and burst a pipe. i hope this isnít the case. does anyone know whatís the problem, and fixes, or whether i just need a new heater

thanks

I can't speak to the "marey propane tankless" but I've had 3 tankless and helped install more and all of mine and most of the others would be trash in the circumstance your describing. One a buddy purchased came with a freeze plug situation that might have prevented it but most HWOD units rely on an electric circuit to prevent freezing.

okay so it was an issue caused by freezing? can it be repaired at all?

I've heard of some of the old timers (read, extremely crafty individuals) doing it but it certainly isn't going to be a parts thing. Solder and weld would be my guess. Definitely a DIY. They're just not pricey enough to justify the cost to repair with losing the warranty anyways.
