How do I connect the two thermostat wires from a Honeywell R8184G4009 to a programable thermostat. My old thermostat is not marked.


On the Protectorelay Oil Burner Control R8184G4009, you connect the two thermostat wires @ "T" and the other "T". On the ACE Smart Temp Universal programable therostat, connect one wire to "Rh" and the other wire to " "W". Be careful if you are using this thermostat for A/C. In that case, make sure there is no jumper between "Rh" to "Rc".

How do I wire around upper heating element until I can get an other one to replace it?


Question posted under marathon electric water heater.
Marathon is 240Volt dual element non-simultaneous water heater.
Non-simultaneous means that upper part of tank has to reach temperature before power is sent to lower thermostat and element. So if upper element is bad, then water heater has no hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html#audibleBW

1) You need to by-pass upper element without by-passing upper thermostat.
2) You should never by-pass upper thermostat because it has ECO-reset protection.

3) Open following link for image of wiring:

4) Take photo of your wiring in case color code is different on your specific model

5) Look at upper thermostat.
Remove yellow wire from terminal 2 on upper thermostat, and cap off temporarily.
Remove red wire from terminal 4 on upper thermostat, and move it to terminal 2 on upper thermostat.
6) For more effective operation, look at lower thermostat.
Remove black wire from lower thermostat terminal 1 and move wire to terminal 2 on lower thermostat.

Hi, my halstead ace high boiler has started losing pressure and when i top it up to put the heating on after 10 mins the pressure is high whats wrong with it?


Probably a waterlogged expansion tank. The tank provides a springy air cushion for the water to push against as it expands, and the air pushes back as the water contracts. This scheme minimizes the pressure change that would otherwise be caused by expansion and contraction of the water, giving the water somplace to go when it expands. If the air cushion is gone ... big pressure swings.

The wires going to the upper heating thermostat in our water heater smoked and the unit no longer works. We want to try replacing the thermostat and wires. Do we have to remove the outer shell to change...


If you're talking about the wire leads on the thermostat, they will not pull out -- there built into the thermostat.

The wires fried because of loose connections which cause arcing -- I've seen this many times. The thermostat may still be good -- I'd suggest not replacing it unless it's proven bad or is obviously burned/smoke/charred.

There should be a cover with one or two screws holding it. Remove this to access the connections of the breaker box wires to the thermostat. This is 10 AWG wire and difficult to work with -- just make sure all connections including wire nuts are as tight as you can get them.

And you may only need to cut the burned end of the (breaker box) wires off and reconnect -- depends on how far back they are burned.

Wiring


The new thermostat (I assume you must be changing one) will have several possible scenarios. If you have two elements and thermostats you look for the diagram that says two elements working NON-SIMULTANEOUSLY. In other words the top element heats until the thermostat is satisfied and then, and only then the power is sent to the bottom thermostat. The wiring diagram will have the numbers and colors of the wires for everything in the heater except your feed wires. Those colors don't really matter much. You will have three conductors--two hot wires and (likely) a bare ground wire.

Hope this helps.
