You water hose is not hooked up to the black tank flush by mistake maybe?
You have 2 water inputs, yes? On our 29XK fresh water in is the top one and black tank flush is lower one.

You are set to City Fixtures?

When you say all settings are good, what does that mean? Same question as corky, do you have it on city fixtures? Maybe you have it on city fill? Can you hear the water flowing in from the hose?

I have tried city fill and city fixtures and water does not flow either way. it ran for one minute and then quit. I talked with a service man and did what he said and it is not working. Made a service appointment for Monday when I return to Mississippi. Totally confused as to why it quit. But I'll let yall know. Thanks for your help. Happy holidays!

I'm going to take a WAG and say the 1 minute of flow you got was to fill the water heater? Or do you have a tankless?

When you say "flow" do you mean at the faucet or at the spigot?

If you have a WH with tank, have you checked the "winterization" valves?

Good luck and happy holidays to you!

Check the valves on the water filter lines. If either of those are off it will not allow the water to flow. You shut them off to change the water filter if they are not turned back on that could be your problem. Good luck.

Please let us know if you are not embarrassed! LOL It can't be anything major. I'm betting on a valve somewhere that you have not found.

Obvious stupid stuff to double-check:
The intake screen on the city water connection.
Check the hose for kinks.
Did someone turn off the sillcock at the house?

Sounds like the water filter by-pass valve....

You could try the tank fill and then switch to the internal pump as well. Just another route
