Water heater not making hot water


1) Electric water heater can be repaired, no need for new one.
Copy following links:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#veryhot

2) Ordinary homeowner can turn 6-year electric tank into a lifetime tank.

3) If you replace heater, then buy inexpensive tank-type from local box store, and use coupon or offer 10% off. Read the product manual.
Avoid tankless at all costs unless you are rich.
No need to buy expensive water heater on the promise of thicker insulation or higher energy factor, or 'lifetime elements' or 'advanced technology', any other slicker promotion aimed at folks with the promise of a golden rainbow of money-saving-bliss if only you would spend more money. All costs are energy. Expensive water heaters do not pay back, and 1 repair will dissolve all anticipated savings. And expensive heaters can never be maintained to last as long as ordinary tank-type electric.

Exactly wher eis the ele element located on an Atwood 6 gal Mod 6-E (LP & Ele)? Do you have to remove the entire water heater to replace the element? .Thanks...Richard.


There should be access from inside RV to get to the back of water heater. Make sure you have the hydro breaker shut off. On the back there is a cover where hydro wires etc, go in to. That cover has to be removed to give you access to element. Once cover is off, you should see element down low. You may want to test for voltage at element, then check switch ( on side or top of cover) and reset at ECO, (push in on little reset in center of ECO ) just in case one of them was the problem, and save changing the element.Then carefully test for voltage at element terminals. If voltage there and not getting hot replace element.

Hi...I have a Whirlpool water heater and the water only stays hot for a few minutes. How do I adjust the temperature or settings so that I can have hot water all the way through the shower instead of...


I am guessing this is an ele water heater and the temp setting are not the problem.
Problem: Not enough hot water or water temperature too low. When the top of the tank is hot the upper thermostat removes power from the upper heating element and transfers the power to the lower thermostat and heating element. If the lower thermostat is defective, then the lower portion of the tank will not be heated and the supply will be greatly reduced.
Check for power at the upper thermostat terminals where the power is sent to the lower thermostat and heating element. If there is no power then the upper thermostat should be replaced. If there is power then check for power at the lower heating element. If there is no power at the lower heating element then replace the lower thermostat.
If there is power to the lower heating element then it should be getting hot. If it is not, replace it. Another possibility is a broken dip tube. Check for a broken dip tube and replace if necessary.

The dip tub is located under the fitting where the hot water comes out.

Breaker is tripping off every 20 min i know amp are right plz adviced me how to fix


need to know which breaker- house ele. panel breaker, which should be a min. of 50 amps,or the element breaker located inside either the upper or lower cover. If it is the element breaker/reset switch, this can be changed with great ease. Turn the power off and the ele. panel, check with a voltage meter to make certain power is off at the unit, loosen or remove the wires- making sure as to location of wiring, remove the switch and replace, reconnect wires, turn breaker back on,and you should be ready to go, This is assuming you have a 50 amp breaker in the electricial panel.
