Question about Water Heaters
I have replaced both elements, and contact, no power coming from contact, will work when manually pushed, but not otherwise, have power going to thermo, coming from thermo to pressure switch and power leaving pressure switch, cant figure it out please help
Hi not coming from the US but from the UK. have you wired up the elements correctly?
you need to make sure there is power at the elements, you can do this by using a multimeter.
By physically disconnecting the elements & fitting a plug on them & plugging them directly into a power outlet, that way you can definately be sure that the elements are ok, but if you are in the US make sure its all to code?
Check the thermo( I am guessing by this you mean the thermostat?)
You can link this out just to make sure that the thermostat is not at fault. so by doing that you are putting the heater in a permanent demand, if that works then it could be the stat thats giving probs.
So you kinda get where i am coming from process of elimination here? or that if a timer is in an off position?
My hunch sounds as though it could be a pressure switch prob?
if you have wired the elements in right make sure your not getting a back feed & that its not showing you theres power when in esscence there isnt ?
