    of course it still runs...although at that rate it is no longer radiant but now blue flame!....I took it apart and resealed it but I would say that it was put together poorly to begin with and would not recommend buying another.

Porche cayene 2006 side passenger heat doesn't work

Many seat heaters are either controlled by a fuse, switch and/ or relay. You may need to check whichever of those you may have the skill to do. If the LIGHT on the heater switch is working you can probably rule out those 3. Likely the 'heater elements' (usually thin wires than run under the seat's cover that heat up when voltage is applied, which then heats the seat) have a crack in them somewhere, which needs reconnected.

Also, does the power control work on the passenger seat? If not, it may share a circuit/fuse w/the heater switch.

Buying a new electric hot water heater and seeing two different types of elements; copper and combination. Is one type better than another, and if so, which one?

hot water systems come in three types
copper--subject to electrolyses around the heater element area where they leak life expectancy in good water areas -- possible 20 years
steel ( vitreous enamel coated to prevent rust-- subject to cracking of the covering during manufacture and transport and rusting around the ports-- life expectancy if in perfect condition - around 10 years
stainless steel-- mainly the cost but if in hard water areas is the most cost effective - life expectancy well past 20 years in harsh water conditions
the heater element are mostly copper as in the stove element and will last a long time provided the heater tank has water covering the element although the element may be stainless
however regardless of the material used it is the porcelain inside the covering that allows the element to short out and burn the cover
most hot water systems use common heater elements so it may be wise to keep operational units for future use
Best is to talk with a good plumber supply shop ( not a hard ware shop) and get all the details before buying a new system
repairing is not really an option

I have an electric 50 gallon hot water heater 2 years old its seemed to be leaking by the upper heating element. I replaced the elment and it still leaks what could be the problem

It could leak trough the bolts that holds the element, the gasket as well, and it could be a crack in the tank around the opening of the element if it's a plate type element, if it's a screw in type elemnt, than it could be a crack in the threads or you didn't seal the threads with proper compound...

The bottom heating element keeps blowing breaker and bottom of heater is filling up with water around heating element

If there is enough water around element and lower thermostat, it's going to blow the breaker. If you don't have leaks at the pipes above, it's probably time to replace the heater. If the leak can be found and repaired, there may be hope for the heater but, if it is leaking past thermostat, you probably have a crack in the threads. Make sure, if your going to work with the wiring of the unit, that it is turned off and, if it is on, make sure you're careful and not standing in water. You could quite possibly have a cracke or broken tank.

Hello I have a question about my oil burner. recently i did a full tune up on my boiler and noticed my burner gasket needed to be replaced so i replaced it. when i took my burner out to replace it i...

If they are just hair line cracks I would not be overly concerned,just something I would recommend that you monitor. If they spread apart a bit further you can clean and wire brush cracks as good as you can ,then wash down and allow to dry. You can use a thin coating of hi-temp furnace cement with a temp rating of 2000 degrees. Follow instructions on container and it should help. Thank you.

The burners work but the oven does not.

you need a new bake ignitor (if you have a bgas oven) if you have electric check for cracks or anything on the heater element, if no evident obvoious cracks in the heater take it off (two screws usually and slowly pull it out it has two wires on it) take of the wires and check for ressistance if your meter reads a number other than one than your heater is good and you might have a bad thermostat and that you would have to chec k the wiring
if you read infinity( usualy it would just show the number 1, set the meter to the highest scale on the resisstance scale) you have a bad heater
good luck

Leaking basement foundation

It sounds like the ground has settled around the area where the leak is, hence the traveling water. The right way to fix the problem would be to remove the porch, dig up around the basement wall, apply a sealant to the outside of the wall, install weeping tile and re-grade the soil to drain away from the house. Your best bet to begin with may be to try to re-grade the soil so it is sloping away from the house, however this is only a temporary patch, if temperatures get below freezing there is a possibility that moisture in any crack in the wall could cause further cracking and leaks.

My 7142 leaks

There are a few hose connections inside the unit related to the heater element. Water flows from the reservoir down into the unit, takes a turn into a tube with the heater element wrapped around it, then turns back up into the mister area. Any of the four connections (base to first elbow, elbow to heater tube, heater tube to second elbow or second elbow to base) could be leaking.
The white ring around the mister disk cracked on my unit, letting water leak out the bottom as you describe... Take a close look at that.
It's also possible the base itself is cracked somewhere... Look closely at the mister and reservoir areas of the base for cracks.

Burner mat

it is a fiberglass composite. it will not burn. its function is to soak up the kero coming into the burner pot for ignition. from the factory it is held in place by a refractory cement that tends to dry out after time and the edges of the mat curl up. I do repairs on my own monitor 441 and I use a 500 degree silicone adhesive that I got from the hardware store made by rutland stove cements.
