No easy fix . your water heater should be fine most likely its up to temp ,thats why its not lighting its main flame . the frozen pipe is another story you need to get the heat up in the house open any cuppord doors that have pipes in them like under a sink ( to let heat from the room get it there ) leave a faucet on hot and wait . at some point you will unfreeze . but you migh end up with a broken pipe so keep your eye out for a water leak . good luck

Hot water in kitchen only froze


good idea to let the cold water to run a bit to stop freezing up . Pity that you didn't do the same with the hot water. There is only hot water in the tank but the water in the hot water pipes will freeze as the heat goes out of the pipes. (Always to have to wait for the hot water to come through when you use the shower or bath.) The water will freeze up right back to the hot water tank

Hot water barely comes out,


If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.

Hello. When the pipe froze it may have dislodged a piece of scale or rust from inside the pipe. When the water flowed again the particle moved up to the small hole at the valve and caused a partial block. You'll have to shut off the water supply and disconnect the supply line on the hot side. You may be able to open the faucet and blow back through to try to remove the blockage. If this don't work remove the faucet handle and pull the cartdrige out to clean it. Remember to close the water supply.

I have replaced my electric water heater and I have checked everything I can think of and I still run out of hot water in 3 minutes. What on earth is the problem.


3 minutes?? does the water run cold then? or just warm?
Is this what the tank you replaced was doing? If so, then you may have: 1 a recirculating pump instant hot water system thats faulty and allowing cold water backflow into hot water piping. 2 A tempering valve that has stuck, allowing cold water into your hot water system.
Or maybe a broken or missing dip tube in your new heater.
If after 3 minutes the water is coming cold out leave that faucet running and go to heater and feel the hot water outlet pipe from the heater. if that pipe is hot then the heater is not the problem. If the hot pipe from the heater is cold the heater is the problem. (Make sure the cold pipe coming into the heater is connected to the Right side marked "cold" !) If there is a tempering valve by the heater: feel the output from the tempering valve, if it is cold and the pipe from the heater to the tempering valve is hot, then the tempering valve is the problem. If all these are OK somewhere in your plumbing system hot and cold may be connected possibly a faucet or showerhead that is shut off at the spout/head, but hot/cold handles are left turned on then cold water can backflow thru hot pipe.

Hot water comes out cold side for few seconds and gets cold, no hot from hot side, only cold


Make sure that the water pipes for the cold water coming in and the hot water going out are connected to the correct positions on the water heater. If the connections get reversed, the water that is supposed to be hot will be drawn from the bottom of the tank and will not be as hot as it should be. The cold water input goes to the bottom of the tank. The hot water out comes from the top of the tank.

Duissamble the faucet after turning off the shutoff vavev and look for an obstruction. The only shutoff if the tempature gets too high is the pressure/tempature pop off valve which would redrirect the discharge down another path. Go to the waterheater and see if it is coming out from another open pipe from the heater.

Washer won't drain


Yes Get a space heater and run it by the frozen pipe. Turn off all electricity to avoid shock and it should break free by the morning. Run it at a drip from now on during really cold night just like the sink but set washer on DRAIN this will help. Good LUCK
