Limited hot water from 62 gal ge model D03666 looking for type and how to replace heating elements


Open following links to get started.
If water heater has NO hot water, then best suspect is ECO reset button tripped on upper thermostat. Open upper cover and push in red reset button. If reset keeps tripping, I usually replace both upper and lower thermostat.

If water heater has some hot water, then upper element is good so test lower element.

I have no hot water in my home i can not locate the reset button


The reset button is located on the top thermostat, on the heater you will see a acess panel with screws in it to remove the thermostat and element is behind this panel. Once removed the top thermostat should have a red button to press to reset heater.
If it resets then wait for a little time for hot water. If this doesn't work then it could be the elements are in need of changing.

Hot water does not last long. Hot water heater is a 50 gal ge smart water heater. It takes a long time to heat and is not very hot when it reaches shower in the back part of house. Where are the coils or...


probably has a bad heating element. May be a little limed up also. Drain the heater and replace the elements. Take a special tool to remove and replace the elements. ( fairly cheap) You can probably get the elements and parts at a good hardware store. The people at the store probably will explain to you how to replace them. Feedback please if this was of help

Elec water heater no hot water


Check the breaker to see if the unit is getting power. You will need a voltage meter to check out the thermostat on the unit and also you will need to use it to check if the elements aren't blown. Sounds like the unit isn't getting power but could be the thermostat located under one of the panels on the side of the unit.

Hot Water inconsistent


Something you can do, following your fathers logic,   is to attach a hose to the drain of the tank and run water from the bottom of the tank into a drain untill all the sediment is removed (Water runs clean). This is normally done once a year as preventive maintenance  on all tank type water heaters. The logic sounds good to me.
