Question about General Electric GE SmartWater Household Water Filtration System - GNWH38F

1 Answer

I have turned off the water supply to my home for an extended vacation. I know I need to cut the power on my GE SmartWater water heater. There is a dial that shows ON (where the dial is pointing now) and one that says PILOT and another to the right that says OFF. The dial won't allow me to go to the OFF setting, so is the PILOT the correct, safe one to leave it on for two or three weeks????? If, not what should I do instead???? Thanks, E. Singleton

Id try raising the chimney until you can get the smoke from a piece of paper to get sucked up under the draft hood. I believe theres a different problem then a cold pipe.raising the chim.might not be the answer.

How to replace heating element on a 20 gallon ge electric water heater


First thing is to cut power supply off at the breaker box. Next turn main water to the water heater off. Once power and water is cut of to the water heater you are now ready to drain the tank for element removal.
Once water is drained remove wires from element and remove with socket if it is that type of element or 4 bolt type.

Upon starting putting it all back together remember to open all faucet's hot side to purge out all air out of system before turning power back on.
Water need's to be running out of faucet's and no air before cutting power on. If you turn it on before air is out of system it will damage th enew element you just installed.

We have a leaking water heater.


As far as a shut off valve on to the water heater, if there is one you should be able to see it on the water line going to the heater. This is not common in mobile homes. If there is not one I would strongly recomend you install one when you replace the heater. If it is going to be a while before you replace the heater you might consider draining it and cutting into the inlet line and installing a shut off valve, so you can turn the house water back on. I hope this helps.

HAE A GE WATER HEATER MOD PE50TA. WANT TO INSTALL


Hi .. you would be better off with a double pole switch. That way all the power is disconnected from the heater when the timer turns it off.

General Electric GE SmartWater heater problem


most units from GE come with a 3 year manufactures warantee and the home depot should have no probleme giving you a new one off the shelf with your receipt they will send it back and get there money back from GE so they pass it on to you. it would cost you the same amount to fix that one then to buy a new but yours is still under warantee untill july. hope it works out for you.
