Turned down temp on Water Heater a little, and now we are not getting any hot water. Not even Warm. Whats wrong?


For electric tank: Push in the reset button located on upper thermostat.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html

For gas tank, then more specific information might be needed for example if unit has power vent, when was the air intake cleaned, is the pilot lit, what brand and model number etc etc..
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html

For tankless, or solar, or hybrid electric, gas boiler, or indirect, or RV heater, etc then please include brand, and model that appears on label on side of unit.

My water heater wont heat up


You posted under Marathon electric heater.
If you have tankless or tank-type gas heater, information below does not apply.

Absence of hot water say upper element is not working.
1) This can be caused by tripped reset button located on upper thermostat. Open upper cover and push in reset button. Put ear against tank to hear bubbly fizzing sound. Put insulation and cover back over thermostat. Continue reading information below because reset button trips when thermostats are bad or element is shorted.
2) Upper thermostat is bad. Replace upper thermostat. I usually replace both upper and lower thermostats.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
3) Electricity going to water heater from breaker box is interrupted.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Test-electricity-to-water-heater.html
4) Upper element is bad. Test element. Replace element if needed.

5) Add a comment for more free help.

6) Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

New water heater installed in Jan.2010, first no hot water at all, replaced top element have hot water now but reset button trips and have to reset it when all hot water is used. Any ideas what is wrong?


The reset switch works like a thermostatic breaker and although unusual, it is possible the reset switch is bad or weak. You can replace the reset but some are hard to find. It may be easier to replace the upper thermostat with reset. I would also suggest that you check with the vender you purchased it from, and relay your story to them as they may be willing to help you with the parts. I hope this helps.

Hot water wont get hot


1-First check for power to water heater and remove acces panels on heater to check power at thermostats. Thermostats have a reset button on them that trip and can be pressed to reset.

2- If none of the above have changed any thing and you have power you may have elements gone bad.

If an element is gone at top you will get scalding hot water then go to cold.

If an element on the bottom is gone you will get luke warm water then will get cold.

HELLO, MY WATERHEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE RESET BUTTON ABOUT TWO TIMES A MONTH. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


could be faulty thermostat/reset button, or shorted element. Breaker to water heater off,
Check elements for continuity to ground. should be no continuity to ground. If elements OK replace reset button. If you have noticed very hot water and elements checked OK then replace both thermostats along with reset button
