I have a new Bradford white 40 gallon gas hot water heater. There are no single handle faucets. The hot water fluctuates between hot and cold. When I close both inlet and outlet shut off for the hot water...

Sounds like water leak.
For example, broken pipe... or water running out of TP valve.
That would explain variable hot-and-cold water at tap.
Turn off all taps, and observe if water meter is registering water usage.

Heater not getting hot

Sounds like the heater core is blocked and not circulating hot water. Uncover the heater core under the dash, little radiator. Get the vehicle to running temperature, turn the heater on and feel if the little radiator gets hot. If not then something is blocking the water circulation. Either the heater core is broken or the lines are plugged coming in or going out from it. Typically it is the core that is broken.

Electric Water Heater not Working




1 Answer

I have replaced my electric water heater and I have checked everything I can think of and I still run out of hot water in 3 minutes. What on earth is the problem.

3 minutes?? does the water run cold then? or just warm?
Is this what the tank you replaced was doing? If so, then you may have: 1 a recirculating pump instant hot water system thats faulty and allowing cold water backflow into hot water piping. 2 A tempering valve that has stuck, allowing cold water into your hot water system.
Or maybe a broken or missing dip tube in your new heater.
If after 3 minutes the water is coming cold out leave that faucet running and go to heater and feel the hot water outlet pipe from the heater. if that pipe is hot then the heater is not the problem. If the hot pipe from the heater is cold the heater is the problem. (Make sure the cold pipe coming into the heater is connected to the Right side marked "cold" !) If there is a tempering valve by the heater: feel the output from the tempering valve, if it is cold and the pipe from the heater to the tempering valve is hot, then the tempering valve is the problem. If all these are OK somewhere in your plumbing system hot and cold may be connected possibly a faucet or showerhead that is shut off at the spout/head, but hot/cold handles are left turned on then cold water can backflow thru hot pipe.

The elbow is broken and the air from the hot water tank is leaked

Any exhaust air coming from the gas water heater is potentionally life threating. I would get it fixed. Do you have a CO2 meter close by the water heater? If it is leaking air back into the house that has CO2, after a certain amount the alarm will go off. If you dont have one get one. A must have with gas appliances.
