Remove the cover on the bottom of the unit and see if the light is flashing on the console, and if so, how many flashes how often. There should be a guide on the unit to identify the issue based on the number of flashes.
Can you expound a bit? Issues as in mechanical failures of the tank itself?

More likely electrical, not mechanical. I'm not handy in this regard but I had an issue myself recently and learned about the flashy light system.

It sounds like your issue might be the same as mine which was a problem with the thermostat. I think less than $200 to replace.
If you don't care why would you comment?

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Spent a ton of time googling and watching youtube videos, I'm trying to understand my heating system a bit more.

The thermostat is wired to the zone controller, the wires on the bottom of the controller - do they lead to the zone valve or to the circulator pump?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Can I just swap out a normal shower head to a rain shower or is it more complicated than that?

Not sure how someone can answer that with the info provided.

I don't think so. I think you need to change first the shower arm to a rain shower arm, the one that has the thread end totally facing downwards, and has a longer pipe coming out, with the regular angled  shower arm it will still pour like a regular shower with an inclined spray, no matter which shower head you attach.

I would say most shower spouts are standard.
That being said most of the attachments that go on to that spout can be moved up down and adjusted that way you get a perfect angle.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Correct that most heads are adjustable, but still you need the longer shower arm pipe , otherwise you'll need to stand too close to the wall since it's spraying downwards and not angled. The rain shower arms comes longer therefor.

Maybe he can post a pic of what his shower arm looks like, I replaced my shower head to a rain one long ago and it was fine, I left the longer arm that it came with in the box.
