If this problem is resolved, then ignore the following comments.  The air lock is not the reason why you are not getting much water through to the hot water taps.  The reason this maybe happening is because the the 3/4inch threaded pipe on the hot/discharge side may have been installed upside down.  "it was factory installed", yes, even factory installed plumbing products can be improperly assembled.
