DOES WATER IN GO ON TOP OR BOTTOM OF HEATER


1) Low-boy water heater, cold water connects to lower inlet pipe and hot to upper outlet pipe.
Cold enters bottom of heater and then hot water rises to top where it leaves tank.

2) With larger water heaters both hot and cold connections are on top of tank, but the cold water goes to the bottom through the dip tube.

If pipes are reversed, the water heater will not work.

I just installed a new electric water heater with dual high limit elements.I hooked up the red and black wire, just like the old one and set the limits to 125 and turned on breaker. we waited about 6hrs...


Most water heaters heat the water on top first. This is because the warm water will rise to the top and the hot water is drawn off the top. When the upper thermostat turns the top element off then the bottom one comes on. It makes it sound like there is a problem with the top element. Disconnect electric, and read the resistance on the element terminal to terminal. If it shows open the you have a bad element. Did you make sure the heater was completely full before turning the electric? You must run the hot faucets to remove all the air from the top of the tank before turning on the electric. Elements will burn out quickly if out of the water.

The water seems to be hotter than usual and my electric bill has increased by $100.00


There may be sediment buildup in the tank bottom, which can cause this. Shut off the electricity to the unit, drain off some water from a faucet that should be at the bottom outside of the tank and see what comes out, if a lot of dirty water and sediment comes out that may be it. Let it flush until clear water comes out. You will probably have to hook a garden hose on the faucet to get the water to a drain or outdoors.
Be sure to shut off the power to the heater first!
Then let the heater fill back up with water and turn on the power and wait for it heat up.

New electric water heater doesn't seem to be working.


Take off the two grey covers, being really careful because you are dealing with live electricity, and make sure that the adjustments on the temp is set high enough to even turn on. sometimes they come from the factory that is not set high enough to even heat the water.

How do i change the element in my water heater


The most important step is to turn the power off. If you still have the manual it is the best to follow the instructions provided in a book.

If not, learn about electric water heaters, how to test the heating elements, how they work and are they OK, than follow the instructions:

Once the power is off, turn the water supply off, attach the hose and drain the water heater.

Unscrew the terminals from the heating element and unbolt the elements from the water heater.

New heating elements has to be with same specs as the old one.

Before turning the water heater on it is VERY IMPORTANT to refill the tank.

It would be a good idea.If you don't you have water all over you and the heater.Turn water off and open the drain valve at bottom of heater.I would hook a water hose and run outside.when the water start running open the pop off valve ,it will run faster.
