Question about Fasco Bradford White Hot Water Heater Exhaust Draft Inducer Blower # 239-42133-00

1 Answer

I only get hot water and no cold water in the showers and sink. It just started yesterday, have never had a problem with the house for the past 5 years. I had had 1 plumber come out and they claim the piping of the plumbing in the house is wrong. I told them it just started yesterday and never happened before. Anyone have an idea?

Hot water heater has hot in tank but dose not come out of hot water line on tank


most electric hot water systems use a heat transfer process where the element is in one tank and the house water is in another
the house water is what is being drawn off when you turn on a tap
there is a regulator valve at the top of the tank with a small lever that you open up to let water in and air out of the system
another point is that there may be a hot/cold mixer on the hot water outlet which limits the temperature of hot water to prevent scalding injuries in the bath and shower or sink
If you have one fitted they are known to malfunction and cut the hot water temperature down as, they mix too much cold water into the hot water pipe.
have a plumber check it out

Shower goes cold intermittently like there is a restriction in hot water delivery. Plenty of hot water when it comes back, but the cold blast is not fun. No shortage of hot water for long showers or...


Has nothing to do with the expansion tank, the expansion tank whole enough air so that when the heater heats the water it does not build up pressure. You know from school that you can compress ait. you CAN NOT compress water. When you haet water it expands until it turns to steam. So lets rule that out.

First look at all the plumbing in the house where there is a cross conection. This would be like a shower valve that has a personal shower head on it. and you turn of the water using the personal shower handle and not the valve at the wall. This then would let cold water to go into the hot water side piping.

Most people do that with out knowing it at the laundry sink. they put a hose on to was the dog and forget to turn off the faucet and then BANG cold water in the hot side.

Go around the house and turn off all the faucets and valves by using the handles. no add on things.

Now last could be the shower valve itself. . Do this happen in just one shower or all of them???

If its just the one and you spend the day doing the walk around, even check the bidet if you have one

its the valve. you need repair to that.

Best of luck in your hunt Tom

Why does water suddenly go cold during shower? It only happens in master bath... guest bath shower does not cause same problem. I have to go outside and unplug and plug back in heater to get it to start...


Try running the hot water in the sink while you have the shower. If the water in the shower stays hot, then the problem is not enough flow through the water heater to keep the heater running. I am guessing that the master bath is further away from the water heater than the guest bath. If not I would check the shower nozzle in the master bath to see if it is clogged a bit or if it is a water saver nozzle because this will slow down the water volume and then cause the water heater to shut off the heat.

Believe it or not one of the sink or shower fixtures is by-passing when closed.Gravity circulation in standby mode(not being used) is the cause.Trace the (warm )cold water pipe to the fixture after no one uses the water for a while.Good luck.

No hot water in sink and shower


it sounds like 1(or more) of the motorised valves arent working.find the valve and make sure you are getting power to it via a tester,if so then it probably needs the head on the motorised valve changed

Warm water only


You can eliminate the shower control knob possibility by turning on your hot water anywhere else in the house. If you get hot water in other places, then it could be the knob causing it. A substantial lime buildup in the tank can also cause poor heat transfer from the elements to the water.

Running out of hot water after 5 minutes or so in the shower.


I think the dip tube in your water heater has failed, this is a plastic tube that goes in the cold side of your tank and forces incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank allowing hot water out at the top. When this tube deteiorates the incoming cold water mixes at the top of the tank causing the problem you have. the dip tube runs about 5 bucks but takes someone with pluming skills to install.

Water is either hot or cold - no in between.


I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.

So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?
