The heating element continues to heat even after the hot water tap is turned off thus popping the thermal switch. The red light is off on front of unit but you can hear the water heating. Any ideas?


check the pressure control that switches the element on or off
if it is faulty then it switches on when the tap is turned on dropping the pressure but it will not recognize that the increase in pressure when the tap is turned off so it keeps heating the water.

Heating and hot water only warm. I'turned dials up and altered thermostat but nothing helps and pressure dial keeps going into red HELP


Check your dip tube.

the higher up the dip tube is broken, the colder the water will be.

Knowing the make and model of heater will help.

Vailant ecotec plus 837 - Water pressure and temp is too high


Pressure inside the tank will rise along with the water temperature. As the water inside cools the pressure will wane until the heating element turns on and reheats the water with a subsequent rise in pressure. Running the hot water at the same time will draw heat energy from the boiler and lower the internal temp and pressure as well.

Pressure gauge reading zero


Hello Mark
First of all turn on a hot water tap and keep it running whilst you check to see if your boiler is firing up, if it is not then try to restart it, you should hear the flame if its running, turn your tap off then just stand by the boiler for a few minutes to see if the pressure gauge starts to rise, if it doesn't rise you will never get any hot water, you will have to add some pressure to about 1 and a half on the dial, to do that is simply turn on the water valve in the bottom of your boiler and watch your pressure gauge rise to about 1 and a half then firmly turn it off again, it looks like a small tap like the one at the back of your washing machine pipe, it's ok you will hear the water rushing in, now with your gauge at about 1 and a half and your boiler running your water will get hot

I have a Reliance 501 electric water heater. There are two panels. In the top panel is a red "reset" button. On two occasions this button has popped and turned off the unit. I have pushed the...


ECO reset button trips when thermostat senses high heat event over 150 degrees F, or when upper or lower thermostat is defective. There are other causes: if tank access covers and insulation are missing, and when element is shorted to ground in center of element so that element continues heating through one leg of 240V circuit after thermostat turns off.

Ordinary tank-type electric water heater is fully repairable by homeowner using generic parts from hardware store or home center.

1) Replace upper and lower thermostat for about $28, and if problem persists, then do troubleshoot shown in step 2 below.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

2) Take 30 minutes and troubleshoot before replacing any parts.
Troubleshoot requires cheap multimeter from home center.
Install battery in multimeter.
When testing voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240 or 250 or 277 VAC.
When testing continuity or elements, rotate multimeter dial to ohms (upside down horseshoe symbol is ohms)

Low boy water heater leaks at point where cold water pipe enters caseing.The leak is below the threads.The caseing is rusted at the point where the pipe goes through.Can this rusted place be patched or...


1) Your water heater needs to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
Tanks rust out after anode rod is depleted unless anode is inspected and replaced 1-3 years.
Water softener causes anode to deplete quicker, so inspect every 2 years.
Also stray household current can cause tank to rust out. Put bare copper ground wire between hot and cold pipes on new heater.

2) First thing is protect yourself from tank rupture where water heater bursts open and water runs until it's shut off. Ruptured tanks are big topic in homeowner insurance industry today because they cause major damage inside house.

- Turn off heat source so tank is not under pressure:
Gas: Rotate dial to pilot so pilot light stays lit, but burner does not turn on
Electric: turn off circuit breaker

- Turn off water going into tank using shut off above tank.
- Open hot side to bathtub to relieve pressure from tank.
- Check label on side of tank to get tank specifications for replacement.

3) What to do until replacement.
You can get by for a while on leaking tank by turning it ON only when needed.
Make sure tank is full of water before turning heat source back on.
This will buy time until replacement.
Electric tank heats 21 gallons water per hour.
Gas water heater 41 gallons per hour
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water, bath uses 12-15 gallon hot water.

4) Additional reading so next tank lasts longer

It is possible that when pressure dropped from city supply that it created syphon and sucked water from your heater back into city lines. This could have caused unit to burn out heating element. I don't know if your unit has any backflow prevention to prevent this from happening.If you can I would suggest that you check incoming power to your heater. It should be around 240 volts. I also would check reset or limit switches again. Hope this helps. Thanks

Pressure relief valve - replace
The internal seal gets bunged up with dirt & scale and then leaks water [pressure] to that outside pipe
To avoid draining the whole system, turn off the two central heating taps on the 3/4 pipes and then operate the valve manually and / or disconnect - only a small amount of water will escape / drip to below the boiler
Replace valve and fill as before.
If you think your system needs flushing out - now is a good time
Turn off mains electricity to boiler before starting work
