Water heater not working?

I have a Intertherm electric water heater. Model Number: HSE-52F-240D, 50 Gallons. We have well water and our pump wasn't working properly for a few days, as soon as we noticed we shut the water heater off. We were able to fix the pump yesterday and turned the water heater back on after it had filled up completely. We ran water through the lines but waiting until this morning to expect warm/hot water, but unfortunately, something isn't working properly, because we don't have any. I've flipped the breaker and have tried resetting the water heater itself, but it doesn't seem that the reset button fully engages as it should. This water heater has two thermostats. I'm new to all of this, but am trying to save money, and really hoping the whole thing doesn't need replaced. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: Ductless heater shutting down

There is a small wiring harness that goes from the main board down to the sparker board at the very bottom of the heater. Disconnect this harness and reconnect making sure all pins and contacts make good connection. If it continues, replace the wire harness. Also make sure the outlet that the heater is plugged into is a grounded outlet. Stray voltage can interrupt the thinking of this unit.

If all connections are good and the unit is grounded, you are probably looking at replacing the sparker board. I do have these parts and would be more than happy to send them to you for a donation.

SOURCE: water tank is suddenly filling up

look closely how the water flows from the evaporator to the tank. does it goes first to the condenser ?..or is there a heating pipe that is touching the tank in order to heat the water for it to evaporate?

here's the set up, your ac would cool and absorb moisture in the air and becomes water in the evaporator. these water is sometimes used to cool the compressor or the condenser to help it run cooler and at the same time evaporates the un-needed water . but incase the water is so much then you have the tank to keep the water from spilling. sometimes they still put some hot pipes to further heat the water to evaporate.

check those pointers that i have mention.

in some case, the air in your place just got humid and wet that is why it has too many water condensation..

If you reset the water heater the first time you were without, Then odds are it is the water heater. probably an element went back. If the power off check for continuity.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil

Does an Intertherm water heater model HSE 30F 240S have a dip tube? Cold water comes n on the side of the tank not on top or bottom.


How to Repair or Replace Defective Water Heater Dip Tubes

www.familyhandyman.com > Skills > Plumbing
The role of the dip tube is to direct incoming cold replacement water to the bottom of the tank for heating. While it warms, the dense, cold water stays naturally segregated from the warmer, lighter water floating on top. The water for faucets and appliances comes from the hot layer on top.

There is a suprising lack of information on those water heaters. Do you have any idea how old it is? Is it in a mobile home?

I have an Intertherm heat pump model number E1EH-010HA. Last night we had a bad storm and our electricity went out and we had a water leak, now out heat pump isn't working. There is power to the...


Your furnace will either have circuit breakers or fuses at the bottom in the panel below the blower. Also, there MAY be fuses in the disconnect box outside that gives power to the heatpump. Intertherm furnaces are famous for leaking water onto the left side of the electrical panel in the furnace which is also convieniently where the low voltage transformer is located. If you consider yourself electrically competent, check to see that you are getting 240v to your transformer and if you are the check to see if you are getting 24v out of the transformer. If you can't find the problem in any of these steps, I would recommend contacting a qualified professional to check the system out.
