I cannot figure out where the bypass valves are on my 2017 199FKS. Can someone provide a link to a you tube video or a picture?

Thx.

I made a video in this thread.

It should be similar with the bypass valves behind the water heater. There is a chance you might not have bypass values installed in which you will need to install them.

I did see ur pic and have viewed videos for models other than the 199FKS. They are not similar. No tanks are accessible through the rear hatch. 

Please I need info SPECIFIC to the 199FKS. 

thx.

I have discovered that in the 2017 199FKS (manufactured Sept 2016), the heater bypass valve is located inside in the kitchen area.  At floor level, below the microwave and drawers, there is a panel screwed on with two screws.  Bypass valve is behind this panel.  I will try to post a pic later.  Too much snow on the ground today in Flagstaff AZ!!

As stated earlier the bypass is behind an access panel below the two kitchen drawers that are below the microwave. However, once you learn where they are and how they work you can access them by reaching around through the opening under the kitchen sink and not have to remove that panel. If you open the cabinets under the sink and stick your head in there you can look over and see the bypass. You can then reach in there “blind” and turn the valves. It works and is much easier and quicker than taking off that panel.
