I have water in the junction box on top of my hot water heater and into the electrical conduit leading to the hot water heater.


I do not see your earlier post with photo.

The problem could be the conduit.....
-disconnect the conduit and wires from water heater
-run wire into a junction box set lower than top of water heater... -then run another #10 wire from the junction box up to water heater...
-So if water is coming from conduit, it will accumulate into junction box and not in the water heater wiring cavity.

Next thing....
... a water softener can cause rusted tank.
-Softened water adversely affects anode rod...
-causing anode rod to deplete faster...
-once anode rod is gone, then tank begins to rust.
-Here are details for checking anode rod each 2-3 years:

You would need to buy a propane hot water heater. Unfortunately you can not convert an electric hot water hearter to propane.

I didn't want to use either an electric or gas hot water heater so I invested in a solar hot water heater for my home. Best thing that I ever did as far as saving money. Once it is paid off then the benefits are lower utility bills.

Good luck,

Marty

No hot water


It is probably the thermostat. I would suggest replacing that next.

I have a 640dors reliance capacity40 water won't stay hot long(electric)


remove the two covers one high and one low and set the temp higher. This time of year with colder water comming in the house the water heater has to work harder to raise the temp of the incomming water. In the summer the incommong water is much warmer. 40 gal is a small water heater and you will only get about 15 gal of hot water with the ice cold water entering the water heater as you use the hot water. You can get a bigger water heater. even better is to go tankless and a have never ending hot water and save money at the same time.

We just relocaed a modual home with a Rheem electric 40 gal warrior hot water heater, we have no idea of previous care, in setting up the home and trying to get hot water, after turning the water on,...


sounds like the element is burned out....probably got turned on before it was completely full of water. You can get a kit that has new elements and upper and lower thermostat in it. Those are the only things that can go wrong with an electric water heater....other then leaks.

Tankless on demand water heater.


Tankless water heaters normally take a little longer than a regular heater to provide hot water because they have to start and get warmed up. I'm guessing the heater uses a pilot light and that the short amount of hot water when you turn on the tap is hot because when the water is sitting still in the heater the heat from the pilot light is enough to get it hot. The tub faucet will get hot a lot faster than the shower because it lets a lot more water through and empties out the pipes faster than the shower. You could probably speed things up by letting the tub faucet run on completely hot for like 10-15 seconds and then turning on the shower.

Is the pump flow to or away from the watermaker?


In city water or well water system ... the cold water flows from the tank (or meter) toward the hot water heater. The cold water splits in two (so to speak) at the heater with one part going on to the house to supply all cold water needs while the other part goes into the water heater to be heated. On the other side of the hot water heater, there is a system that paralles the cold water system to supply the hot water needs of your home.

I hope this answers your question.

No instant hot water


If you have a tankless hot water heater, you may still need to install an expansion air chamber to stop the "water hammer"; If you have a tanked hot water heater, you will never get instant hot water like with a tankless unit.
