Default Need Help

Hello everyone i have a Norris tankless water heater and radiator. Recently i purchased a new home and the previous owner had her thermostat in the basement. Unfortunately the basement maintained a good temperature, instead of the rest of my home. I take care of an elderly retired veteran and he is nearly freezing upstairs. I was told to relocate the thermostat to one of the main floors. I purchased a new Nest thermostat and the error code I’m getting is no power in the RH wire. I was told i needed a common wire. Well noritz told me there system doesn’t put out voltage to use as a common wire. So i installed a 24V transformer hoping that would help. Negative still no power in my RH wire. Can any who has experience with this type of system guide me in the right path to get this heat going in my home. any advice would be gratefully appreciated

You used the wrong plumbing switch. A boiler switch looks like this. Model 62P-WH

Must be the new Chuck Norris brand water heaters.
Chuck just thinks about kicking your water's a$$ and that makes it heat up. Chuck don't do transformers.

ok, kudos for caring for a veteran, and thats the only reason im not gona rip you a new one for posting in a forum you dont belong in...
go read the service manual for your heater and figure it out or hire a licensed plumber to fix it..or relocate the existing thermostat till you can..
consider this a gift..but only once....there are DIY forums for your questions...

Did you read my mind? I was about to make a Chuck Norris joke including transformers but used the boiler switch instead.
