My Daewoo water heater is broken. It happened a month ago, too in the same way but fixed itself in 24 hours.

Last night, I turned on my onol heater and was also trying to do some dishes. Then it started beeping and flashing EE.

I've browsed previous topics and they don't help in my situation. My boiler has no dial to check water levels, which I think might be the problem. My gas for my stove works, so the error code means something else. If anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it. My landlord isn't even home since it's the new year holiday.

Often times, it just needs to be reset by turning it off and on. If you can't find a switch, try unplugging it and replugging back in the wall.

Not sure if you took the cover off, but the valves and power switch are often inside of the metal front cover. Depends on the maker.

There should be an overflow on the boiler. Put a bucket under the overflow to catch excess water. Now the tricky part, find the correct valve to turn on water flow. There should be several valves on the boiler. Depending on the make of the boiler, the water flow valve could be located in a different place. On my boiler, it's a small copper nob. Turn the nob counter-clockwise until you begin to hear water flowing. When water begins to drain out of the overflow, the boiler should begin working properly. This is if the problem is a water level problem.
