How do I drain the Kwikot 600 dual geyser to replace the element


If the design is typical, there should be a drain valve at the bottom. There could be simply a plug that has to be removed for draining.

Fly Geyser in NW Nevada, does it exist?


Wow this is wierd but here goes... (from WIki) Fly Geyser is located on the private Fly Ranch in Hualapai Flat, about 0.3 miles (0.48 km) from State Route 34.[1] The ranch is currently owned by Todd Jaksick There is a high fence and a locked gate topped with spikes to exclude trespassers. The only access is a dirt road, but it is large enough to be seen from the road.

It is not an entirely natural phenomenon; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 exploring for sources of geothermal energy.The well may not have been capped correctly, or left unplugged, but either way dissolved minerals started rising and accumulating, creating the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and continues growing. Water is constantly released, reaching 5 feet (1.5 m) in the air. The geyser contains several terraces discharging water into 30 to 40 pools over an area of 74 acres The geyser is made up of a series of different minerals, but its brilliant colors are due to thermophilic algae.

Had burst pipe, used geyser water to bath kid. Water supply now restored but geyser switch in box keeps on tripping... Help!


Use hair dryer and see if you can dry out parts.
Often, when electronics get wet, they cannot be repaired... like dropping cell phone in bucket of water.

The anode rod is part of water heater, not part of geyser:

Water heater


Guessing that you have 240Volt residential non-simultaneous electric water heater? And that you have 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire. And that water heater is located within 100 feet of breaker box. And there are no leaks running hot water out of tank. And that you installed fully brand NEW elements of same wattage as old elements. And that fully brand new thermostats were installed, and wiring exactly duplicates wiring that was present before. And that factory-insulation was re-installed over elements and thermostats.

1) Guessing the 'hot water shut off' means the ECO red reset button located on upper thermostat keeps tripping and cutting off electric power to water heater?

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/WH-w-combined2-1000.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-wires.html

2) If the ECO is tripping, then water is getting too hot, or there is shorted wire located near the upper thermostat, .
Typically replacing both thermostats and replacing elements will solve this problem .... assuming that new thermostats and elements are good, and wiring correct.
Double-Check your wiring on upper and lower thermostats.
Test wires for short.
Make sure factory-insulation is re-installed over thermostats so cool room temperature will not affect temperature reading.
Check that thermostats sit flat against steel tank.
Many short draws hot water can also cause stacking event that will trip circuit breaker.

3) Add comment and say what you find using checklist above.
Be careful to explain findings fully, using same words found on links above, so illuminated diagnosis can be made.

Ge electric water heater. 3 years old. keep tripping reset. both elements show 13 ohms, with no gronding out condition. help!


Have you replaced the thermostat they will short out and keep tripping to they go bad. Check the ends of the elements also for any bad places. Ran along this a few times and it ends up being a bad thermostat causing it to trip. You will reset it and it may last a day or more and keep resetting it and eventually it will short out or burnt out. So please check it out and this helps you.

Circuit breaker trips on electric hot water heater circuit


Check the voltage at the water heater. Sounds like the element is burnt out and is tripping the breaker.

If it is more then 5 years old I would check.install a new heating element.
