Hello i just started my 8 kw hole house generater ran greatput my electric water heater on 26 amp draw andsmoke came out exhaust vent shut it down ran again great turned only heater on again took amp

8 kW has a 35 amp breaker on the unit. A typical hot water is 4500 watts at 240 volts = 18.75 amps on each leg. If you are measuring 26 on one side and 19 on the other it should be ok. If it is shutting down you may have a fuel problem or you may need to adjust voltage if it's too low. Which model of 8 kW is it?

GE Water Heater, Calrod, failed after power outage

Check the power is good to the heater then check there is power on the elements. That will tell you exactly where the fault lies.

Model 100HFL...with the light switched on I turn on the exhaust fan and the light dims a bit and the exhaust fan works. with the light switched on I turn on the heater and the light goes completely dark. ...

I'm not sure what is going on without full and complete description of wiring and switches:
Add a comment with exact information for possible help.
Specs say 20 amp circuit is needed: so 20 amp circuit breaker + 12 gauge wire are required.
Heater uses 1500 watts, so it pulls a lot of power if same circuit breaker is used for several other rooms and a TV etc. Turn off everything else and see if problem persists.
Sell sheet for product says: Energy efficient lighting - uses one 27-watt (max.) high efficiency GU24 based fluorescent lamp.
Turn off power, and disconnect ground wire. Turn power back on and switch on the heater-lite and see if there is a fault to ground.
Use a different switch.

Size of the exhaust vent pipe on a 75 gallon gas water heater? Is it the same size as on a 50 gallon water heater. Brand is GE, mfg 2008

I believe it takes 4" vent pipe up to 100,000 BTU
BTUs are shown on label side of tank.

Does new water heater have power vent? What does manual say?
Are you experiencing vent problem now? When you light a match and put it under vent stack, does smoke immediately get pulled upward? Are furnace and waster heater connected to same venting. Is there dark exhaust stain around vent hood? Does exhaust vent back out of vent hood when furnace kicks on? Are flue pipes stained with rust and white coating? Are vent pipes vertical, or are there level runs? Are the pipes made of galvanized and screwed together with 3 screws at each joint?

Frankly I would double-triple-check any internet answer dealing with possible CO poisoning at your home.
1) Ask local plumber for specific code in your area.
2) Call gas company
3) Post question on pro water heater forum:
4) Read whole manual for new water heater before buying.
5) Contact manufacturer.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Model BP28-BMP-4 Heater will not light. The Exhaust fan light will not stay on. exhaust fan runs & blows air flow . Pressure switch makes but light blinks on at startup then stays out.

Sorry you're having a problem. As the Mantis is one of the most efficient vented heaters on the market. In fact, it's furnace rated.

It sounds like their may be a relay problem, but can't be sure. I would suggest that you call Empire Comfort Systems on Monday and ask for either Rich or John in Technical Service. I' am sure that either one can help you with this technical issue. The number is 800-851-3153. Be sure to have the Serial Number of this unit, as well as the Model #, when you call.

It does not matter whether the power goes to the fan unit or to the switch box, you still need 3 insulated wires going between the switich and the fan, and the ground wire as a 4th wire. If power is at switch, you will have white as nuetral feed to fan and 2 blacks (or a red and a black) one each to bring power for light and power for fan or heater element. ( if so equiped). If power is to fan unit, the white wire must have a piece of colored tape (red, orange, blue, brown) and this whtie wire is attached to the black power wire. The tape shows that this is not a neutral. The tape has to be at both ends of the white. Now, the other 2 wires (blk & blk or red & blk) can be atteched to the switch and carry the elec. to the fan light, blower, and or heater. Goodluck, Macgivor

Oven wont light

Check the amp draw on the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or less, replace the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or more, replace the gas safety valve.

Do you mean the internal cooling fan and cooking cavity light?

I'm guessing these are not the ones you mean, but if so, please reply back and I'll address that.

I'd bet you mean the exhaust vent fan and cooktop work lights?

If you mean the latter, the problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
