Question about Water Water Heaters

1 Answer

In our guest bathroom we have a loud vibration when the hot water is turned on in the sink but we cannot get hot water. The tub gets hot and has no vibration at all.

    Hi Christie Hurst, we want to help you with your question, but we need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    might be the washer or the tap is calcified .

    Honestly, not sure what to say. The pipes are pvc, not copper. In the sink when you turn on the hot water it has a loud vibration that you can hear no matter what room your in. There is water that comes out, but it's cold and never gets hot. We never really use the bathroom so I am just noticing the water will not get warm. We have a tub in there as well and have no issues with the sound or water. What else could I find out to help determine what could be the issue?

Try the cold water side. Does it function normally?

Testimonial: "It does"

    It is either the washer in the hot water faucet or the cartridge in a single handled faucet-depending on ur arrangement. Replace them and u should be fixed.

You may have instant hots for the sinks, a small heater for each location which won't be on the tub. If there is a flame fail the hot water heater is not working. Check the flame sensor and ignitor.

Since you have hot water at all the other fixtures, the problem lies in the sink, not the water heater. It could be that the sink is farther away from the water heater than the other fixtures. It would take longer to get hot water.

No hot water in sink and shower

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
