The principle of electric storage heaters is that they take in electricity at night through a central time switch (normally owned by the electricity supply company and usually not controllable by the user).

There should then be a main switch/ fuse box to control the heater circiuts, check for such a box and that it is switched on (This would normally be sited near the electricity meter).

There should be an isolator switch next to each heater but from what you say this is not the case.

There should be some controls on each storage heater marked INPUT with a dial from 1 to 6 or similar then another marked OUTPUT or BOOST.

When you have ascertained the fuse box is on and the heater controls are set to maximum you then have to wait overnight for the heaters to warm up.

These seem like the siemens/bosch type. There is a heater relay that can go bad. Its in the front panel. Check the relays in the front panel for bad solder or burn marks.

So my intermetic time is broken, the gears dont turn, and the on/ off override isnt working. I need my pool heater, what do i do?


Sounds like you lost power to the timer. Look in your electric panel for a tripped breaker. Turn it OFF then back ON.

Help! I can't get the water heater to go on! I KEEP TRYING to set the dial, but it's not working


If I understand correctly, you have the WH40 water heater timer.

If timer dial will not rotate, then use manual override to turn on circuit to water heater.
If manual override will not move back and forth, the tripper pin might be wedged against the lever.
Lift and rotate dial out of way.
If manual override does not click back-and-forth, then timer is probably bad.
If manual override clicks, but water heater does not turn on, then check electricity.

If you need more help, post a comment and I will respond

How do you tell if you have rear a/c. My compressor needs replaced and I need to know which one too get. With or without rear a.c I have a 1997 Dodge Caravan se with the 3.3.


Look on the front heater air conditioning control panel. If it has a four position two speed blower (override) switch then you have rear air conditioning. Also look in the overhead for the fan/temperature controls. Hope this will help.

Goodman heater not turning on


If your pressure switch is clogging then you need to check the flue pipe make sure it is not rusting. If it is the flue should be replaced and also think about replacing the pressure switch. Check your high limit switch also. If the pressure switch goes sometimes it pops the high limit

Rinnai RHFE 1004F Error code 49


A 49 error code is caused by the pressure switch either not proving or a bad component. Check the hose attached from the plastic elbow located behind the heater going to a small square pressure switch found inside the heater. It may have come loose or a mouse may have taken a bite out of it. Also while you are behind the heater, pull off the hose that looks like a vacuum cleaner hose and run the heater with it unattached. If it runs, you have a blockage in the vent. If not, take a flashlight and go outside to the vent. Look down the center pipe for any obstructions. If it still does not work, you may need a new pressure switch.

While the front panel is off the heater, cycle the heater to attempt a start. You want to make sure the blower turns. If it does not, check the wire connections to it. You may be looking at a bad blower. If it is turning but still does not start, we are looking at a bad pressure switch.

Let me know what you find, I may have a switch or blower motor that you can purchase.
