Your heater will only come on when the pump is circulating. Check to see if your pump is on or off. I am sure you already know that if you have it set to heat to 84 it should get to that temperature and maintain it within two degrees. If it doesn't, then here must be a problem. Don't immediately blame heater. Check pump operation.

My 2000 jimmy has heat problems. the heat goes from cold to hot to warm to cold etc. what could the problem be?


If the temp gauge is now more stable, the problem is in your heater system, not the engine cooling system.

Water heater supplies about a pint of hot water than turns cold?? what is th eproblem


Hello Rsjohnson164,

I understand that you are having a problem with your hot-water tank not producing any amount of hot-water. I would suggest that you turn off the cold water supply to your hot water tank and drain the tank and see how much water comes out of it.

Flush the tank:
1. Turn off the cold water supply
2. Hook a water hose to the boiler valve (spicket on the bottom of the tank) and turn on the valve
3. Turn on the cold water inlet line and let it run for about 15 minutes or until you get good pressure coming out.

Check the Elements:
1. Turn off the power to the hot-water tank
2. Remove the service panels
3. Remove one wire from the element and use a multi-meter to check continuity
4. If no continuity replace one or both elements

If you do all of this and still have a problem repost to this thread and we will check your thermostats to make sure they are working properly.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

Hello friends, it has been really cold here, and I have no hot water flow from my Rheem water heater, cold water flow is low but at least I have =), what can it be?


I am going to guess you have crawl space and the you have some frozen water pipes.

Turn the water faucets on to the hot side and one of them to the cold at a trickle and add heat to the water piping area or go down there and use a heat gun/hot air not flame and apply to the pipes. If you have a part of the piping close or in an outside wall I would start there.
Good luck and hope for the best.

Most people don't know that the hot water as it cools will freeze first because the water has more air in it then cold water dose.

Hi.. we'll feel cold after taking bath from? 1. cold water 2 water at 40 c 4 water at room tempreature 3 water at 50c


"we'll feel cold after taking bath from?"
(Let's assume room temperature of the bathroom is 25 c.)

1. cold water
Assuming cold water means below room temperature, for example, 22 c. One taking a bath in water at this temperature would probably feel cold DURING his bath at least at first. However, a cold bath would tend to bring blood to the capillaries under your skin and create a warming sensation. But after you get of the bath tub, you would definitely feel cold unless the room were heated!


3) water at 50c
Most folks would feel quite hot while in the water at this temperature. And after exiting the tub, since the layer of water on his skin would probably still be well above body temperature (37 c), a chill would not set in until the water on his skin cooled down to below body temperature. So if he quickly dried off, he would avoid feeling cold.

2 water at 40 c
While almost completely immersed in the bath water, one would certainly feel warm unless there were a draft in the room, because 40 c is 3 degrees above normal body temperature. For the same reason as stated above (#3), he could escape feeling cold outside the tub if he dried off quickly.

4) water at room temperature
- If I had to select only answer, I would choose this condition that would make one feel cold after stepping out of the bath tub, because:

Upon exiting the tub of water at room temperature, one would certainly feel cold if there were a draft in the room. Even if there were no draft, one would still feel cold, because the water on his skin would be cooler than his body heat (37 c), and cause a finite evaporation of the thin layer of water on his skin, which is a cooling process. The skin's heat would be lost, because its energy would be used to evaporate the water.

Water tempeture gets hot then cool


Have you tried turning off the valves to the water heater and making sure you have no water flow out of the hot water tap? When this happens, often it is because of a problem with a shower cartridge allowing the cold water to cross over into the hot water side. It makes the unit think that the flow has reduced and the heater will turn down or shut off. Then things bounce back and forth Hot to Cold then back to Hot.

Not dispensing cold water


turn the system of unplug and turn the machine upside down without the water bottle. There shud be 2 drain plugs underneath. remove one at a time and force water or air backwards thru these drains to ensure no obstacle in pipes. Also check inside that no pipes are bent closed so as to block water from flowing thru. It doesnt work via a pump but a simple gravity feed system. also the cooling works diferent to a normal fridge, doesnt have gas in it it cools by a heating element that cools on the one side and heats on the other side. Also check that ur fan on the cooling side is still running properly it shud turn of after a couple minutes and turn on when the water gets hot again.hope it helps.regards.viv

Cuisinart DGB-600BC - water inside the carafe shell


First off, do not submerge the carafe in cold water when it is hot. The water will rush past the seals. This solution involves heating the carafe. Be careful to avoid steam burns
1. Place the carafe on a stove top. 2. Slowly heat the carafe. (make sure you are wearing oven mitts -- avoid steam burns) 3. As the carafe heats the water inside steam will escape the area where the seal allowed the water to get in there in the first place. Steam should appear very quickly, If it does not stop the process right away! Pressure can build up and cause the Carafe to explode! 4. Check the carafe from time to time taking care to avoid steam burns. 5. Once the water has been steamed away, remove the carafe from the stove and allow it to cool slowly. DO NOT place the carafe in water or on a very cold surface until it has cooled. The rapid cooling of the left over steam will cause the carafe to collapse on itself if it is placed in cold water while it is still hot from this procedure.

No Cold Water Wash; Only Hot


When doing a hot wash the machine is designed to take both hot and cold water. This is because it can heat the water to your selected temperature but if the water coming in is too hot it needs to cool it down to avoid heat damage to your laundry.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.
