It sounds like your breaker is too small (amp rating not high enough). You need to check the wire size going to and from your breaker to see if you can put a higher amp rating breaker in. It would be advisable to have an electrician check it out.

I got bosch exxcel watching matchine it is not heating up the water the element is fine but matchine is not hating up the water .


It must have a thermostat to prevent the water from getting too hot. The thermostat sensor/switch is stuck in the " off " position. The only other thing it could be is the temp boost switch is defective. Just because the heating element looks good, does not mean that it is good.

Electric water heater only heating small amount of water


There are top and bottom elements on hot water tanks. The bottom one usually burns out first, it can be replaced, they cost about $30. Some are immersible some are wrap around. Disconnect the power. Open the bottom cover for the element, cut the insulation, remove both wires and test with a meter to see if you have approx. zero ohms. If you have high ohms readings, then the element is pouched.

Off peak hot water not heating!!! :(


The Economy 7 can control different types heater. Some heaters do not have off-peak ... but you can solve problem..
Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/QE7-INSTRUCTION.pdf
If timer is wired to two different elements, then the night rate element or off-peak element might be burned out. Test element with multimeter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
Also this timer is wired so either Off-peak is getting power or Boost is getting power, but not both at same time.
If heater has off-peak element, then there will be a wire connected to terminal 5, going to heating unit.
If there is no wire on terminal 5, then there is no off-peak element, or wiring has not been connected. However you can change the timer function by moving wire on terminal 4 to terminal 5. Then only the off-peak timer function will operate, and not the boost.
You can also fool the timer, by setting time clock differently. Instead of setting timer for current time, rotate the dial and fudge current time by 10-12 hours so water heater thinks it's time for boost, but the actual time is during off-peak hours.
If terminals 4 and 5 both have wires, then either the element is burned out, or the timer has malfunctioned. Again, you can fool the timer by setting current time differently, and solve problem.

We have a new Rheem 30 gal short water heater. It only seems to put out about 10 gallons of hot water before it starts going cold,any suggestions......


I am assuming that everything was fine and then all of the sudden available hot water usage time dropped.

On a dual heating element hot water heater it can be

1. Internal tank loaded with sediment (drain and purge from lower garden hose fitting)

2. Thermostat or element problem with ONE of the 2 heaters. (Trouble shoot element thermostat)

3. Check Circuit breaker for partial trip of the breaker.

The plumber put in the heater yesterday, the electrician says there is power going into it but no hot water today...It has not heated.


Hi,
A couple of things....
Was the power turned on even for a couple of seconds before the heater was completely filled with water and the air purged from it? Powering up a hot water heater even for a few seconds with out the elements totally immersed will burn them out.
The other thing to check is the reset button on the top thermostat. It is posible that it needs to be reset.
Pull the cover and peelaway to insulation to find the red button. Push firmly on that and if it clicks it was the problem. If it continues to cut out then you have other issues. Be sure to cut the power before opening the cover to prevent getting shocked.
It is also possible that the top element is bad from the get go... If the top does not heat then it will never switch to the bottom and you will never have any hot water.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Model YLR2-5-90HZ3 cold/hot/water dispnser with fridge won't heat


I have the YLR2-5-96H2 and hot water stopped heating up. I unscrewed the casing and unplugged the connections to the circular heating element and 2 circular probes. Brushed off the white dust build up on the probes and it started to heat water again. I ruled out faulty heating element, because it got really hot just seconds after turning on the hot water switch.

WIRLPOOL DISHWASHER COLD WATER CLEAN ONLY!!!


HI Nick- the element in the dishwasher dries the dishes and sometimes boosts the heat of the water. Your water should come in already hot, so the problem is either your hot water heater or that the plumbing line was switched to cold by mistake. Or that people are bathing, laundering, etc. and using all available hot water right before you run the dishwasher.

Indesit DG6100W problem...please help!


Hi, I have the same dishwasher and it fills from the cold supply, not the hot and it doesn't have a cold cycle as is previously suggested, as you will know kellyemb :-)

The Indesit DG6100W does a fill from the cold and heats as it washes, so if it's sticking part way through, it could be the heating element. Have you tried opening the door when it sticks and seeing if the water is hot? The heating element went on ours and it kept tripping the electric whenever the it tried to start to heat the cold water. If it is the element, they don't cost much to replace, even cheaper if you know someone who can fit it for you! Ours cost us around £12 and hubby fitted.

The only other thing I can think of is it might be the timer, like someone has suggested but how to reset it, I have no idea. I have seen on another website that a replacement timer is around £55 plus VAT, which is a little expensive.

Hope you get it fixed.
