Someone else who has the same unit as you can provide more detailed information specific to your unit.

Actually your method shouldn't be used.
If you use the hot and cold tap to purge air from water heater "it's possible" that the water heater bypass is turned "not allowing " water in the tank giving the allusion that there is by getting water from your hot water tap.
You should always use the pressure relief valve to purge any air.
Mine is always open while the tank is filling.
Just an fyi.
How can I annoy OC today?
