Question about General Electric GE SmartWater Household Water Filtration System - GNWH38F
I recently had to turn off all my breakers to work on another item not related to the water heater. Upon switching them back on I am not getting hot water from the water heater. I keep flipping the breakers with no result. Is there another breaker I should look at or does the red button on the unit reset the water heater? How will I know when it's heating up or back on?'
It usaly takes a few hours to heat up depending on water size check our breaker to see if it tripped out make sure all your wire connections are good u could take the front plate off and hit reset if you dont get hot water in a few hours ull probibly have to replace the trermostats and maby the elements its not hard to do good luck

Did you check to make sure that the breaker is good on the unit? Check to make sure you are getting voltage. If not, check to make sure that the thermostat located in behind the panel on the heater is getting voltage and also sending voltage to the elements. If the elements are getting voltage but aren't heating, the element(s) is bad.
