How can I remove a broken plastic drain plug from a hot water tank


You cn either drill it out (make sure the drill is not too big to damage the threads) and then breakit off or drill 3-4 holes in line using a 3mm drill to create a slot so a flat screwdriver can be inserted and used to unscrew it.

I don't know if wire is damaged, connections are bad, or bulbs burned out.
Best to test each.

I HAVE AN A.O.SMITH POWERHOUSE POWERSHOT POWER VENT WATER HEATER , THE MOTOR RUNS FOR 10 SECONDS AND CUTS OFF AND GOES TO VACATION PLUS THREE LIGHTS. NO SPARKS AND THE BURNER DOES NOT LIGHT UP


Sounds like water heater air intake clogged with dust, caused slow venting of combustion gas that overheated combustion chamber and tripped FVIR lockout system.

Copy following link to identify type of gas control valve and download service manual that might apply to your unit.

You need to clean air intake with compressed air or feather duster:

And possibly replace gas control valve, and/or replace thermal cut-off located inside combustion chamber, or on later models, reset thermal cut-off located on front of combustion chamber, or replace FV sensor.

You have 2 problems with several possible causes:
You have 10-year-old electric water heater that was reinstalled after falling down, and doesn't heat the water.
And you have no hot or cold water pressure, and no pipes are leaking.

1) First problem is lack of water pressure throughout house.
Turn on outdoor spigot nearest to water meter.
This spigot will tell you if problem is inside the house or between the house and meter.
If spigot runs full force, then you probably have clogged pipe where water heater connects to main cold line, or the main shut off valve got clogged with sediment that broke off inside the pipe when you were working on water heater.
Open and close shut off valve to see if that helps. Then disassemble pipes and track back the problem. Put pressure gauge on water heater drain valve to watch pressure drop when turning on indoor faucet.
Read following information:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

Water heater doesn't work:
Test across wires at top of heater to see if you are getting correct voltage:
If tank is receiving correct voltage, then no hot water puts suspicion on upper element or upper thermostat, or both.

Blue line connects to bottom of Faucet that comes with unit. I assume the faucet fits in pre-drilled hole in your sink, for example where the spray hose used to connect.

Yellow line connects to top of tank that comes with unit.

Green line connects to cold water line. You might have to make some changes to your cold water shut-off valve to connect green line. If product does not come with a fitting that connects to shut off, then I would probably buy a shut-off that has two connections.

Red line is a mystery. It looks like a discharge line, and the manual is blank on the installation. If the faucet does not have a second fitting, then the red line is probably suppose to rise up to the height of the faucet before dropping down into the drain. This amazingly sanitary plan does not show specifically how to tap onto the drain line, so I suppose you drill a hole and wrap it with some sort of sealant, and then duct tape the red line to side of drain pipe to make sure it doesn't fall out. But I'm not sure what installation method is best for this. It will be a challenge getting your electric drill into the cabinet to drill into chrome tubular drain pipe without bending the tubular wall. Hopefully you have a plastic drain line and perfectly sized drill bit. I can't imagine you're supposed to install a plastic cup under the sink to catch the drain flow.

Manual says you need screwdriver, pliers and a drill. The tool list seems a bit short.

How can i convert a 40 gallon GE Smart Water heater from propane to natural gas?


First thing to do on any gas job is check the fitting line for leaks.
If the piping you are connecting to is "gas tight" then your good to go.
Usually on the compliance plate on the unit there will be a jet sizing chart, find this , it may be on the inside of the cover or on the side at the top.
The jet size for propane is a smaller size orifice than for natural gas,
I use a tiny set of thumb drills to drill the jet to the required size for that burner. (the jets are normally made of brass and are quite easy to drill by hand)
It can be a little bit fiddly actually getting the main burner out of the unit so you can work on the jet. Also very important is that you make sure that you have the exact size drill bit for the jet. Gas appliances can become hazardous if improper jet sizes are fitted!!
This may not be a task for a novice, if in doubt, get a qualified gas fitter to check your work.

I need to replace the drain valve at the bottom of the tank,can I buy a replacement valve? Are they all the same size?


There are 2 sizes; 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Remove the old one after draining the water heater and shutting off the water supply then take your old one to a plumbing supply outfit like George Morlan's. Make sure you wrap the new threads with teflon tape at least 3 wraps while holding the spigot in your left hand so the tape won't come off as you install the spigot. Good luck!!
