How To get help Turning On Your Water in titusville pa
Hi. Did the water get really hot just before the water heater tank shut off? If so, and if your water heater is electric, the temporary fix is to shut off the main, and water heater circuit breakers, (at the main electrical panel) then remove the upper cover, on the metal face of the water heater (there are two, upper and lower) Then carefully remove the insulation, and plastic thermostat cover. Underneath, there will be a large red button, located at the top of the upper thermostat. If you can see the red button through the thermostat cover, then removal is unnecessary. When pushed in, if you hear a "click" it should fire up the water heater. you will hear sizzling and popping noises to let you know it's on. Remember, this is very temporary! As this is an over temperature, (high limit switch) safety device, take replacement of the thermostats seriously ok? My suggestion may or may not be the answer you are looking for, depending on your water heater, but is standard for the majority of home residential electric water heaters.
If you attempt the replacement yourself, be sure to get the exact same, upper and lower thermostats! That way you will be sure the old wiring will reach and you wont have to replace any wires, with longer one's. The correct wiring diagrams will be on the back of the new thermostat's packaging. match up the correct diagram to your water heater, BEFORE disconnecting anything. When done, BE SURE the thermostat's are in their retainer clips, and are touching the bare tank tightly, on the backside. They cant measure temperature without contact.
