82 degrees is quite low for a water heater. reset to 100 degrees and it should heat up.If hot is a concern . 100 is less than two degrees above body tem, It can easily be cooled dow using cold water mix.

I have a Eemax so 35 instant water heater and it makes a buzzing noise when you turn the hot water on

Heavy current required for instant hot water may be switched via a relay or contacter which may be faling. One way to diagnose may be with cover off and careful listening and visual inspection, but a risky process for inexperienced DIY'er's ??. Pro time?

Eemax280t2t no hot water

see if the circuit breaker switch has tripped either partially or fully and reset it. Check for bad or loose wiring on the heater and breakers. The next thing is more likely the heating element is no good and needs repaired or the heater needs replaced.

Vailant ecotec plus 837 - Water pressure and temp is too high

Pressure inside the tank will rise along with the water temperature. As the water inside cools the pressure will wane until the heating element turns on and reheats the water with a subsequent rise in pressure. Running the hot water at the same time will draw heat energy from the boiler and lower the internal temp and pressure as well.

Wher does white wire go on ex 190 eemax water heater

It runs off 220v, meaning there are two "hots" and a ground. The 190tc uses TWO sets of 220v at 40amps each. Instead of only having one dbl throw breaker, you need 2. Having said that... the white wire "should" be the same as the black wire and can be connected which ever way you like

Takes longer for water to get hot at sink and shower and bath tub does not get hot.

The boiler temperature setting is kept at a position lower than you need. Go to the boiler. There will be a small box with a knob. The knob generally has 3 settings marked. Cold or Vacation, warm and Hot. If you inspect it closely you will also see a rd dot marked on the body. If my guess is right, the red mark and warm align in your case. Turn the knob a little towards the hot. However, test your setting after a little time and adjust to the best setting that suits you.. If your temperature controller is in good working condition, water could get really hot. So, tely everyone in the house that you have changed the setting to hot. Other wise you know, severe scalding could occur. If this did not work you may need to change the thermostat. The element seems to be work because the water is heating up at least a few degrees.

Our 606 reliance electric hot water heater has the letters a b c for the temp control not 120-160 degrees. On what letter a-b or c should the temp be set on to get 120 degrees

We will just assume that "a" is the lowest temperature
to correspond to 120 degrees, while "c" for 160 degrees.
So try setting it at "a" and feel the hot water that flow.
Or it could be the other way. Just feel the hot water that
flow. It will be done in a few minutes. I hope this will help
