After 8 years of trouble free service, our rheem pvs50 water heater makes a hum/squeal when water is being used. Resetting the power breaker stops the noise until water is used again.


It sounds like the heating elements are getting coated with calcium/lime/other chemicals that are found in your water. This would indicate that the elements are approaching the end of their life and may be getting ready to burn out. Consider getting some new elements soon and scheduling a time to install them.

We have changed the element and is still not working.


What water heater do you have? Question posted under BW 120V 6 gallon electric.
Element is found on electric water heater.
Igniter is found on gas water heater.
So now it get's confusing what water heater you have.... for example some 6 gallon RV water heaters have both electric and gas. And troubleshoot for that is different than electric water heater.
Copy following link for electric water heater troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html
Does tank have 2 elements or 1? Which element did you change... why did you change element before replacing thermostat? What symptoms were you experiencing before changing element?
Is this a new heater? Was tank full of water before power turned ON?
Add a comment and describe problem in detail.

Shorting out an electric water heater


The heating elements in most electric heaters for water are sequential. That means that both are not on at the same time in some cases. There are individual thermostats for each set of heating elements. So you should check the integrity of both the heating elements with a meter and the thermostats.

The house is on a basement so the idea of it leaking in the slab is probably not it. Does the water heater elements use the full 4500 watts while it is running?


Yes each water heater element consumes 4500watts at all times.
Wattage of element is printed on end of each element, and also shows on label on side of tank.
Both elements are not turned ON at same time.

Energy smart hot water heater not giving ample amount of hot water both elements ohm at 12.5


element-connection-450.jpg
For images and product information
For manual


You checked ohms, did you check for 240V across lower element when lower element is turned on?

Energy smart electric water heater
has a control box on top of unit. Water heater does not have typical thermostats that can be tested and replaced. Temperature sensors located above each element send information to control box through small black and red wires. Temperature sensor sells for about $40, but there is no test listed that shows how to determine when sensors fail.

Potential problems:
-Temperature sensor is not reading correct temp
-Control box not processing correct temperature information
-Selector on control box set to 2, 3 or 4
-Thermostat temp on control box set lower than 120 degrees F
-Sediment build-up starting to surround lower element so water doesn't circulate (see if drain valve runs full-open

My Reliance water heater suddenly produced only luke warmwarm water. I checked for power to the elements. Top one had nothing, bottom one had 110. I replaced the top element (which looked ok.) (power...


Lower element will always test 120V to ground since thermostats turn off one hot wire.

Listed below are suspects in order of ease.

1) Check that hot water is not running out of TP valve and down into a drain.
This will cause water heater to run all the time but not be able to keep up.

2) Test elements before replacing anything:

3) Test electricity to water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Test-electricity-to-water-heater.html

4) Replace both thermostats.

5) Final thing would be full troubleshoot:

We had no hot water so we check the elements with a voltage meter and found the bottom element to be bad. We replaced it. Now there is still no hot water. When we test the voltage again there is continuity...


The elements never run at the same time, it would take to much energy for a standard residential heater. Instead, they rotate powering up back and forth depending on the hot water demand. If you getting 208 to 240 volts on the top element and nothing is happening, the top element is bad and needs to be replaced. If you can swing 30 bucks, replace both elements and both thermostats at the same time. This way you know that everything is new. Check out this generic water-heater wiring schematic.
