End-of-run receptacle dead yet the others on circuit are hot


The one feeding the last one has loose wire. Are you using the push in instead of the screw? The push are bad for losing contact as they only touch a very small part of the wire. I always use the screw to hook up switches and receptacles.

No heat the water.


Suddenly no hot water: Red reset button tripped, circuit breaker tripped, bad upper element, bad thermostat, loose wire, TP valve is running hot water out of tank, leaking faucet is running hot water out of tank.

1) Check for leaks.
2) Check circuit breaker.
3) Open top cover on water heater and push in red reset button.
If reset is popped out and will not reset, replace thermostat:

4) Test upper element:

Yesterday morning I turned the water on to get in the shower and realized the hot water wasn't working I figured it was just something little but this morning I realized that the hot water is still not...


If this is an electric water heater, you should see a little access panel on the side. This contains the thermostat and, most importantly, the circuit breaker. It'll be a little red button you push in. If it pushes in, you've found your problem and you then enjoy a nice, hot shower!

I hope this helps! :)

No hot water


Electric water heater can be repaired by homeowner.

Four things can cause NO hot water:
1) ECO red reset button tripped. Remove top cover on water heater, push red reset button on thermostat. Put insulation and cover back over thermostat.
2) Circuit breaker is tripped, circuit breaker bad, or wire loose in breaker box. Turn breaker on-off and listen for crackling or fizzing sound, and burned smell. Test breaker for 220Volts. Test top two screws on upper thermostat to see if water heater has electricity.
3) Bad upper thermostat. Replace upper thermostat.

4) Bad upper element. Test upper element.

The hot water tap was loose upstairs, the repair man came and fixed it but now i dont have any hot water, is there anything i can try, or will i have to call a repair man out again !


He probably turned off the hot water at the water tank so that he could disassemble the faucet to repair it, then forgot to turn the water back on. If you have no water at all out of any hot-water tap, then you will find a closed water valve at the hot water tank. If you have hot water at all taps except the one he repaired, then you need to open the valve located under the sink.

No water coming from hot valve on faucets


Have you thought about possible calcium buildup in your hot water tank/pipes? I am helping a friend in Palm Springs CA (California not Canada) and we are going to pour a really huge pile of vinegar into the hot water tank (let it sit for a day) then open up the hot water taps to the kitchen (where we don't have hot water flowing very well), then going to let everything sit for another day. Remove the aerator from the kitchen faucet after letting the vinegar/water solution sit in the pipes for a day, and turn on the kitchen hot water tap. Once all the **** is drained out, you must of course drain out the vinegar/water solution from your hot water tank or you will smell like French Fries (in Canada we put vinegar on French Fries) when you shower for a few days.

If you don't understand what the basic chemistry of dissolving calcium via this method is all about, then please call a professional plumber. Hope this helps, and remember that Google is your friend (sometimes), but be careful...

Hot water gets too hot trips off at tank then water gets cool and i push reset button and water gets hot again real hot thentrips off again


It's time to replace your thermostat. Instead of maintaing the correct water temperature, the water is getting so hot it is acivating the safety circuit breaker. If this breaker were to fail, you could have a devastating explosion

When i open the hot water faucet it sounds like air trapped in the lines


A typical cause of this problem is a loose washer on the end of the stem.
Turn angle stop off on the hot water side of faucet, take hot stem out of faucet and check the washer on the end of the stem. I'll bet you find it's loose!
