Can anyone tell me why my ISE GN1100 Hot tap is spitting when the handle is pulled back to release the water?


Usually happens when the temperature is set too high, check your instruction book and set it to the advised temp. Also the filter in the nozzle may need a clean.

Crossover, low hot water flow, low water pressure, sediment in water lines or heater, heat exchanger needs to be de-limed, water filter needs to be cleaned, water heater temperature set too high, incoming water temperature too high or too low depending on model, MUD or PUD districts with pressure spikes, dirty faucet aerators, loose wires, bad sensor, faulty PD-board, bad venting, dirty burner and combustion parts, etc.

Hi, my insinkerator hot water dispenser is leaking from the bottom screw. It is a couple of years old. Moder SST


My unit is 3 1.2 tears old. It started to delay the flowing of hot water. Today I held the lever down until hot water came out but I noticed water leaking from inside the unit. I figured that the tank failed, and since it was over 3 years old I decided to open it up. What I found was that there is a plastic tube at the top of the unit that was very discolored and brittle which developed a crack. when I touched it it completely severed. I called the Insinkerator hotline at 1800-558-5700 and they told me that opening the unit voids the warranty. I said that it appears to be out of warranty and I needed just the plastic tube for repair. The per on on the phone said that as a one time courtesy that a new unit would be shipped to me free of charge and that I could install it myself or they will have a tech do it. I opted to do it myself. Hope this helps

I have an AO Smith Model EES 52 917 hot water heater. This morning my hot water suddenly disappeared. I have tried resetting the breaker with no luck.. I am not sure what else to try.


You have electric water heater.

Inside the upper panel on water heater is a thermostat with red reset button.
1) Click the reset.
2) Put insulation back over thermostat so it is not exposed to cooler air, so it reads correct temperature.

After resetting thermostat, you will have hot water.
The reset automatically clicks off when thermostat detects temperatures in excess of 150 degrees.
The re-set is a safety device, and it keeps everything safe.
If reset will not 're-set' with cold water in the tank, then thermostat is bad, replace thermostat.
You can repair electric water heater yourself following steps on links below

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html

If the reset clicks off again, just reset it
This is not a dangerous situation
Reset thermostat as many times as necessary until you can fix the problem

If you have trouble fixing the problem, add a comment at bottom of this page and it sends me an e-mail and I will help further

Rheem Gas Hot water Heater; Model 21130DV: temperature control dial is set to the lowest setting; water temperature still rises to a dangerous 150 degrees farenheit. Can I replace the temperature control...


yes, sounds like the temp control is bad, you should be able to google model# and thermostat to find replacement. should be fairly easy to swap out

HOT WATER


Not exactly, the heated water in the tank it self is roughly the desired temperature of the thermostat, there is a variable of 5 to 15+ degrees depending on its calibration. there are other considerations i.e. water heater tank insulation - hot water pipes being exposed to cooler temperatures thus cooling the water in the pipe - the farther distance that the water travels from the heat source, the cooler the water will be at the spigot.

Two flashes means that the high limit temperature has been reached. Once this happens, the temperature control system will shut off. Make sure that all element access doors are in place. Push the "Push to Reset" button to restart the temperature control system. The water heater will self test for ten minutes before it will start to heat. If you get the 2 flashes again then you may need to replace one or both elements. Each element should measure 5-25 ohms.

The "thermostat" is the knob marked "Temperature Control". Make sure that the operating mode is set to 1,2 or 3.
