Did you clean the heat exchanger (condenser)? It should be cleaned 3-4 times a year

SOURCE: I have a goodman A49-20 electric heat it recently

Electric heaters have safety thermostats and possible one has tripped. Also find out why the wire shorted in the first place.

SOURCE: Two out of four elermants

If you know that the element is not working and the element is new then you need to use an electrical meter to trace down the power and see where it is stopping at...
My feeling is that you have a bad relay and that is your problem.
The power goes through the relays or contactors to get to the elements... the contacts will burn after a while and then the power will not flow through properly.... or at all.
Check the relays with an electrical meter and make sure that the power is coming in and going out of careful to check and make sure that you haev240 v across the element ends and not just 120v...they will not heat on 120...
Remember that you can have 120v power there but you need to have the other leg and get 240v there for them to work...

SOURCE: Rheem Water heater model number

The bottom element is usually the first to go, without a amp clamp its hard to tell for sure.
To change it out turn off power and then the water, then drain the tank you will need to open the Pressure Temperature relieve valve, to release the vacuum as water is draining out, You will need a socket wrench to remove the element, Its 1 1/8 inch I think. The hardware store has one you can buy just for the element, if you water has minerals in it you will find debris in the bottom of the tank, you will have to get creative to get the tank clean, a shop vacuum and a pvc pipe small enough to get into the element hole and have fun.

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it

The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.


This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi I have a night store heater model 79168 in my new home and no idea how to use it!! Please help :)

Here is a good article for Dimplex, a storage heater manufacturer, that explains the the theory and how it works. I'm sure you will find it interesting.

Basically, thermal storage heaters heat ceramic bricks during off peak hours (during the night), store the heat to be used during peak hours (during the daylight hours), when electricity is more expensive per kilowatt hour.

Hope this helps you.

I have a dimplex springbourne fire and the heater shuts off after it has been on for a short time what is the problem with the unit

Apparently, the heater is overheating and the overload switch is shutting the heater element off.

No adequate heat due to wrong setting temp or your RV (Reversible valve) not working properly.
Set temp +5 than your room temp and mode in " Heat". And check click sound in reversible valve and also warm in sunction line.

If it's with heating element check power goes heater coil. If not check wiring.

There are many reasons why a dehumidifier will not work or collect water.

Hi Fiona, Unless you a little about elec. and have or get a multi-meter to test the circuits I would suggest to call someone. To test it yourself FIRST MAKE SURE THE POWER IS DISCONNECTED!! Then you will need to disconnect the element and ohm it out to see if it is open or closed. If you get a reading then it is closed and ok. There are also limit switches that keep the heater from over heating that will fail. Other than that there's not much to a heater. If the fan does not come on it's probably a relay.
